From a technical perspective, MFRM is pushing higher here right below its 50-day moving average of $38.56 on above average volume. This stock has also started to challenge some near-term overhead resistance at $37.64. At last check, MFRM has hit an intraday high of $38.99 but has since pulled back near $37.60.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades as long as MFRM is trending above its 50-day of $38.56, and above today's high of $38.99 with strong upside volume flows. I would consider any upside volume day that registers near or above 219,890 shares as bullish. If we get that action, look for MFRM to hit $42 to $44 in the near future.

On the flipside, this stock should be avoided if it fails to maintain a trend above its 50-day.
