From a technical perspective, BSFT spiked sharply higher here back above its 200-day moving average of $29.68 and above some near-term overhead resistance at $29.44 with above-average volume. This spike pushed shares of BSFT into breakout territory above as the stock started to trade into its previous gap-down-day zone from last November that started just above $33. Market players should now look for a continuation move higher into that gap if BSFT can manage to take out Wednesday's high of $30.20 with high volume.
Traders should now look for long-biased trades in BSFT as long as it's trending above Wednesday's low of $28.05 or above $27 and then once it sustains a move or close above $30.20 with volume that's near or above 487,524 shares. If we get that move soon, then BSFT will set up to re-fill some more of its previous gap-down-day zone that started just above $33.
