From a technical perspective, AUTH is moving notably higher here right off some near-term support at around $5 with heavy volume. This move has pushed AUTH into breakout territory, since this stock has started to move above some near-term overhead resistance at $5.19.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades as long as AUTH is trending above $4.80 to $5.19 with strong upside volume flows. I am using the $4.80 area because that's a level where AUTH has found support at recently, after it gapped through it from $4.60. I would consider any upside volume day that registers near or above 720,746 shares as bullish. If AUTH can maintain a high-volume trend above those levels, then this stock has a great chance of tagging $6 in the near future.

On the flipside, I would avoid this stock if it moves back below $4.80 with high volume.
