Traders should now look for long-biased trades once SQNM triggers its next major breakout. That breakout will hit once SQNM takes out $4.20 and then both its 50-day at $4.43 and its 200-day at $4.49 with high-volume. Look for a sustained move or close above those levels with volume that's near or above 3.6 million shares. If we get that action soon, then look for SQNM to hit its next significant overhead resistance levels at $5.20 to $5.44 in the near future.
