From a technical perspective, ACUR is bouncing hard to the upside here around some previous support $1.44 with light volume. This move is quickly pushing ACUR within range of triggering a near-term breakout trade. That trade will hit once ACUR manages to take out some near-term overhead resistance at $1.84 to $2, and then its gap down day high from August of $2.20 with high volume.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in ACUR as long as it's trending above its 50-day at $1.69, and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that hits near or above 63,543 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then ACUR will have a chance to re-fill some of its gap down zone that started at around $3.
