From a technical perspective, NYT is making a powerful bounce right off its 50-day at $6.98 and its 200-day at $7.06 with solid volume. This move is quickly pushing NYT within range of triggering a major breakout trade. That trade will hit once NYT takes out some overhead resistance levels at $8 to $8.46 with high volume.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in NYT as long as it's trending above some near-term resistance at $7.70, and then once it clears both of those moving averages with high volume. Look for volume off that move that hits near or above its three-month average volume of 1.1 million shares. If we get that action, then look for NYT to challenge its next major overhead resistance levels at $9.73 to $10.00, or possibly even $11.00.
