This move is quickly pushing STEM within range of triggering a near-term breakout trade. That trade will hit once STEM takes out some near-term overhead resistance levels at $1.87 to $1.96 with high volume. Traders should now look for long-biased trades once STEM sustains a move or close above those levels with volume that's near or above 1,573,790 shares. If we get that move soon, then look for STEM to re-test and possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at $2.31 to $2.65. Keep in mind that this stock can be bought off weakness as long as $1.50 to $1.40 holds. LiveDeal
