From a technical perspective, MELA is bouncing today off of some previous support near $2.50, and off of oversold conditions. The current relative strength index reading for MELA is 36.98, which indicates an oversold stock. This move is now pushing MELA within range of triggering a near-term breakout trade. That trade will hit once MELA takes out some near-term overhead resistance at $3.12 with high volume.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in MELA once it sustains a move or close above $3.12 with volume that's near or above 325,666 shares.
