From a technical perspective, SFUN is trending up here right above its 50-day moving average of $25.39 with above-average volume. This move is starting to push shares of SFUN outside of its recent consolidation pattern and within range of triggering a major breakout trade. That trade will hit if SFUN manages to take out some near-term overhead resistance levels at $28.50 to $29.16 with high volume.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in SFUN as long as it's trending above its 50-day at $25.39 and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that hits near or above 313,948 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then SFUN will set up to enter new 52-week- and all-time-high territory above $29.16, which is bullish technical price action. Some possible upside targets off that breakout are $32 to $35 in the near future.
