From a technical perspective, CSIQ is bouncing higher here with light volume right near some previous support levels at $2.56 to $2.58. This move is quickly pushing CSIQ within range of triggering a near-term breakout trade. That trade will hit once CSIQ manages to take out its 50-day moving average of $2.85 with high volume.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in CSIQ once it manages to clear its 50-day with volume that hits near or above 375,131 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then look for CSIQ to re-test or possibly take out its next significant overhead resistance levels at $3.25 to $3.40. Any high-volume move above those levels could setup CSIQ for a run back to $3.70 or $4 in the near future.
