From a technical perspective, MIPS is moving sharply higher here on decent volume as the stock bounces right off its 50-day moving average of $6.34. This move is quickly pushing the stock within range of a near-term breakout trade. That trade will hit once MIPS moves above some near-term overhead resistance at $6.89 to $7.10 with high volume.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades as long as MIPS is trending above its 50-day and once it sustains a move or close above $6.89 to $7.10 with volume that's near or above 976,166 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then MIPS has an excellent chance of re-testing and possibly taking out its next major resistance level of $7.38.
