From a technical perspective, XIDE is ripping higher here right off its 50-day moving average of $3.15 with light volume. This move has pushed XIDE into breakout territory, since the stock has taken out some near-term overheated resistance that also sits at $3.15.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades once XIDE triggers its next major breakout trade. That trade will hit once XIDE takes out some near-term overhead resistance levels at $3.53 to $3.77 with high volume. Look for a sustained move or close above those levels with volume that hits near or above 726,744 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then XIDE could well be on its way towards its next major overhead resistance level at $4.15 to $4.50.

Keep in mind that you can look for long trades in XIDE as long as it holds its trend over $3.15 and simply anticipate that breakout.
