From a technical perspective, GME is gapping up sharply higher here with above average volume. This move pushed GME through some near-term overhead resistance levels at $19.33 to $19.52.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in GME once it clears its 200-day moving average of $20.71 with high volume. Look for a sustained move or close above that level with volume that's near or above 3,355,140 shares. If we get that move soon, then GME has a great chance of re-testing or possibly taking out its next major overhead resistance levels at $22.60 to $24.
