From a technical perspective, EDAP is bursting back above its 50-day moving average today at $2.01 with above average volume. This move has also pushed EDAP into breakout territory with shares trending above some near-term overhead resistance at $1.89 to $2.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades off the next major breakout for EDAP. That breakout will trigger once EDAP moves or closes above its 200-day moving average of $2.18 with high volume. Look for volume on that move that's near or well above 88,157 shares. IF we get that action soon, look for EDAP to re-test its next significant overhead resistance levels at around $2.50 to $2.60.

Keep in mind that I would only be looking for long trades if EDAP is trending above $2.18 with strong upside volume flows.
