Today's Range: $3.68-$4.00

52-Week Range: $3.28-$6.55

Volume: 591,000

Three-Month Average Volume: 327,415

From a technical perspective, CPE is ripping higher here and breaking out above some near-term overhead resistance at $3.87 with above-average volume. This move is coming after shares of CPE recently downtrended from $5.78 to its low of $3.28. The bounce off that $3.28 low has marked a V-shaped bottom and now shares of CPE are breaking out.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in CPE as long as it's trending above $3.87 with strong upside volume flows. I would consider any upside volume day that registers near or above its three-month average action of 327,415 shares as bullish. If CPE can maintain that trend, then this stock will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at its 50-day moving average of $4.73 to its 200-day moving average at $5.03.

Groupon

Today's Range: $6.15-$6.55

52-Week Range: $2.60-$14.93

Volume: 14.45 million

Three-Month Average Volume: 17.61 million

From a technical perspective, GRPN is ripping higher here and breaking out above some near-term overhead resistance at $6.36 with decent upside volume. This move is starting to push shares of GRPN into its previous gap-down zone from last August that started at $8.05.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in GRPN as long as it's trending above $6.36 or today's low of $6.15 with strong upside volume flows. I would consider any upside volume day that registers near or above its three-month average action of 17.61 million shares. If GRPN can maintain that trend, then this stock has a great chance of trending north of $8 a share, after that gap gets filled. If GRPN can get into that gap with volume, then some possible upside targets are $9 to $10.
