From a technical perspective, XXIA is trending higher here right off some near-term support at $15.50 with above-average volume. This move is quickly pushing XXIA within range of triggering a major breakout trade. That trade will hit once XXIA clears some past overhead resistance at $15.95 to $16.40 with high volume.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in XXIA as long as it's trending above its 50-day at $14.55, and then once it sustains a move or close above $15.95 to $16.40 with volume that's near or above 406,428 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then XXIA will have a great chance of re-testing or possibly taking out its next major overhead resistance levels at $17.18 to $19.10.
