Today's Range: $4.06-$4.23

52-Week Range: $2.87-$5.65

Volume: 211,000

Three-Month Average Volume: 411,944

From a technical perspective, CRIS is trending higher here with light volume as it finds some buying interest around some previous support levels near $4. This move is starting to push CRIS within range of triggering a near-term breakout trade. That trade will hit once CRIS manages to take out some near-term overhead resistance at $4.35 to $4.44, and then once it clears its 200-day at $4.67 with high volume.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in CRIS once it manages to sustain a move or close above those levels with volume that's near or above 411,944 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then CRIS will have a great chance of re-testing or possibly taking out its next major overhead resistance levels at $5.16 to $5.50.
