This move is quickly pushing AVL within range of triggering a major breakout trade. That trade will hit once AVL takes out its 50-day moving average of $1.67, and then once it moves above some near-term overhead resistance at $1.72 to $1.80 with high-volume. Traders should look for long-biased trades once AVL sustains a move or close above those levels with volume that's near or above 506,967 shares. If we get that action soon, then AVL could easily tag its 200-day moving average of $2.63 in the near future. Keep in mind that this stock has been trending sideways for the last two months between $1.36 and $1.80. If that breakout hits with volume, then it will mean that AVL has taken out the upside of its range, which is bullish technical price action.
