Carmike Cinemas ( CKEC) is a motion picture exhibitor in the U.S. This stock is trading up 3.3% at $15.21 in recent trading.

Today's Volume: 243,000

Average Volume: 278,468

Volume % Change: 61%.

From a technical perspective, CKEC is bouncing hard right off some near-term support at $14.50 with decent volume. This move is quickly pushing CKEC within range of triggering a major breakout trade. That trade will hit once CKEC takes out some overhead resistance levels at $15.16 and then $15.80 with high-volume.

Traders should look for long-biased trades once CKEC sustains a move or close above those levels with volume that's near or above 278,468 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then CKEC should setup to re-test and possibly take out its 2010 high of $19.

On the flipside, I would avoid this stock or look for short-biased trades if it fails to trigger that breakout, and then moves back below its 50-day moving average at $14.25 with high-volume.
