From a technical perspective, ELNK trended sharply higher here right off its 50-day moving average of $5.12 and back above its 200-day moving average of $5.40 with heavy upside volume. This move also pushed shares of ELNK into breakout territory, since the stock took out some key near-term overhead resistance at $5.41.

If we get that move soon, then ELNK will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at $6.20 to $6.67.
