From a technical perspective, EQM is gapping sharply higher here with above-average volume. This move is quickly pushing shares of EQM within range of triggering a major breakout trade. That trade will hit if EQM manages to take out its all-time high at $51.72 with high volume.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in EQM as long as it's trending above today's low of $49.84, and then once it sustains a move or close above $51.72 with volume that hits near or above 103,705 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then EQM will set up to enter new all-time high territory, which is bullish technical price action. Some possible upside targets off that breakout are $55 to $60, or even north of $60.
