From a technical perspective, GMT spiked modestly higher here with above-average volume. This stock recently gapped up sharply higher from around $52 to its high of $61.16 with heavy upside volume. Since that move, shares of GMT have sold modestly to its recent low of $58.78. Shares of GMT are now starting to trend within range of triggering a near-term breakout trade. That trade will hit if GMT manages to take out Monday's high of $60.72 to its 52-week high at $61.16 with high volume.
Traders should now look for long-biased trades in GMT as long as it's trending above Monday's low of $58.78 or above $58 and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that's near or above 226,631 shares. If that breakout hits soon, then GMT will set up to enter new 52-week-high territory, which is bullish technical price action. Some possible upside targets off that breakout are $65 to $70.
