From a technical perspective, RBC trended higher here back above its 50-day moving average at $66.20 with high volume. This stock recently formed a double bottom chart pattern at $61.89 to $61.66. Following that bottom, shares of RBC have ripped higher and are now moving within range of triggering a major breakout trade. That trade will hit if RBC manages to take out some near-term overhead resistance levels at $68.53 to $68.86 with high volume.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in RBC as long as it's trending above $65 and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that's near or above 431,197 shares. If that breakout hits soon, then RBC will set up to re-fill some of its previous gap down zone from early May that started at $78.46. Some possible upside targets if RBC gets into that gap with volume are its 200-day at $71 or $73.
