NuPathe ( PATH) is a specialty pharmaceutical company focused on the development and commercialization of therapeutics for diseases of the central nervous system, including neurological and psychiatric disorders. This stock is trading up 5.3% at $3.96 in recent trading.

Today's Range: $3.77-$4.00

52-Week Range: $1.52-$5.10

Volume: 48,000

Three-Month Average Volume: 35,861

From a technical perspective, PATH is moving sharply to the upside here right off its 50-day moving average of $3.66 with above average volume. This move is quickly pushing PATH within range of triggering a major breakout trade. That trade will trigger once PATH takes out some near-term overhead resistance levels at $4.10 to $4.25 with high volume.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades once PATH sustains a move or close above those levels with volume that's near or above 35,861 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then PATH will have an excellent chance of re-testing and possibly taking out its next major overhead resistance level at $5.10.
