From a technical perspective, ANFI gapped up sharply higher here back above its 50-day moving average of $8.23 with heavy upside volume. This move pushed shares of ANFI into breakout territory, since the stock took out some near-term overhead resistance levels at $8.67 to $8.85 and then $9.14. Those latter breakout levels weren't able to hold, since shares of ANFI closed at $8.81, but above its 50-day moving average of $8.23.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in ANFI as long as it's trending above its 50-day at $8.23 and then once it sustains a move or close above Tuesday's high of $9.27 with volume that hits near or above 119,341 shares. If we get that move soon, then ANFI will set up to re-test or possibly take out its 52-week high at $9.80. Any high-volume move above $9.80 will then put its all-time high at $10.25 within range for shares of ANFI.
