This move is quickly pushing shares of CAMT within range of triggering a major breakout trade. That trade will hit if CAMT manages to take out Thursday's high of $4.99 to some more near-term overhead resistance at $5.14 with high volume.
Traders should now look for long-biased trades in CAMT as long as it's trending above Tuesday's low of $4.40 or above more near-term support at $4 and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that hits near or above 2.08 million shares. If that breakout hits soon, then CAMT will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at $5.5 to its 52-week high at $6.43.
