That gap up on Tuesday came with monster volume, and volume today is also well above its average action. Traders should now look for long-biased trades if NUVA can manage to close near its daily highs, and maintain its uptrend above its gap-day low of $19. If we continue to see that action, then NUVA can easily hit its next significant overhead resistance levels at $22.50 to $24.50. That said, I would consider short-biased trades if NUVA moves below $19 with heavy volume.
