From a technical perspective, SNE is ripping to the upside here with monster volume. This move has firmly pushed SNE above some near-term overhead resistance levels at $12.40 to $12.44.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades once SNE triggers its next major breakout trade. That trade will hit once SNE clears some more overhead resistance levels at $14.31 to $14.47 with high volume. Look for a sustained move or close above those levels with volume that's near or above 1.6 million shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then SNE will have a great chance of re-testing or possibly taking out its next major overhead resistance levels at $15.75 to its 200-day moving average of $16.04.

Keep in mind that traders can buy SNE off weakness as long as it holds its trend above $12.44 with strong upside volume flows.
