From a technical perspective, HXM ripped sharply higher here right off some near-term support at $1.50 with above-average volume. This move is quickly pushing shares of HXM within range of triggering a major breakout trade. That trade will hit if HXM manages to take out Tuesday's high of $1.67 to $1.75 and then once it takes out more key overhead resistance levels at $1.84 to $1.89 with high volume.
Traders should now look for long-biased trades in HXM as long as it's trending above near-term support at $1.50 and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that hits near or above 630,031 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then HXM will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at $2 to its 200-day moving average at $2.51.
