Traders should now look for long-biased trades in TROV once it breaks out above some near-term overhead resistance at $2.86 a share with high volume. Look for a sustained move or close above $2.86 a share with volume that hits near or above its three-month average action of 56,492 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, TROV will have a great chance of re-testing or possibly taking out its next major overhead resistance levels at its 200-day moving average of $3.78 a share, or possibly even $4 to $4.24 a share.

Traders can now look to buy TROV off any weakness to anticipate that breakout and simply use a stop that sits just below some near-term support at $2.46 a share. One could also buy off strength once TROV takes out $2.86 a share with volume and then simply use that same stop below $2.46 a share.
