From a technical perspective, UEPS trended modestly higher here right above some near-term support at $9.50 with lighter-than-average volume. This move is starting to push shares of UEPS within range of triggering a major breakout trade. That trade will hit if UEPS manages to take out some key near-term overhead resistance levels at $10 to $10.19 with high volume.
Traders should now look for long-biased trades in UEPS as long as it's trending above some near-term support at $9.50 or above its 200-day at $9.13 and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that hits near or above 174,502 shares. If that breakout hits soon, then UEPS will set up to re-fill some of its previous gap-down-day zone from last November that started at $11.50.
