From a technical perspective, ACHC is bouncing right off its 50-day moving average of $15.80 here with monster volume. This move is pushing ACHC within range of triggering a major breakout trade to new 52-week highs. That trade will hit once ACHC takes out some near-term overhead resistance at $18 with high-volume.
