From a technical perspective, ZGNX is bouncing hard here off some near-term support at $1.55 to $1.60 with decent volume. This move has pushed ZGNZ right below its 50-day moving average of $1.90.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in ZGNX if it can manage to take out its 50-day at $1.90, and then some major overhead resistance at $2.28 with high volume. Look for a sustained move or close above $1.90 to $2.28 with volume that's near or above 358,306 shares. If we get that action soon, then ZGNZ has a great chance of re-testing its March high of $2.90.
