Amyris ( AMRS) develops and provides renewable compounds for a variety of markets. This stock is trading up 5.8% to $3.98 in recent trading.

Today's Range: $3.67-$4.11

52-Week Range: $1.57-$21.47

Volume: 548,000

Three-Month Average Volume: 663,433

From a technical perspective, AMRS is bouncing higher here right near its 50-day moving average of $3.55 with decent volume. This move has also started to push AMRS into breakout territory, since the stock is moving above some near-term overhead resistance at $3.92.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in AMRS as long as it's trending above its 50-day at $3.55 with strong upside volume flows. I would consider any upside volume day that registers near or above 663,433 shares as bullish. If AMRS can maintain that trend, and especially its trend above $3.92, then this stock has a great chance of re-testing or possibly taking out its next significant overhead resistance levels at $4.51 to $4.56, or even its 200-day moving average of $5.34.
