This move is quickly pushing shares of CSX within range of triggering a major breakout trade, which will hit if CSX manages to clear some key overhead resistance at $22.67 and then once it takes out more resistance at $23.13 to $23.19 with high volume.

If that breakout triggers soon, then CSX will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at $25 to $26.08.
