From a technical perspective, ECOM skyrocketed higher here right off its 50-day moving average of $35.19 with monster upside volume. This move is quickly pushing shares of ECOM within range of triggering a major breakout trade. That trade will hit if ECOM manages to take out some near-term overhead resistance at $40.91 to its all-time high at $41.25 with high volume.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in ECOM as long as it's trending above $37.50 or above its 50-day at $35.19 and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that's near or above 221,172 shares. If we get that move soon, then ECOM will set up to enter new all-time-high territory, which is bullish technical price action. Some possible upside targets off that breakout are $45 to $50, or even $55.
