Trade Idea:
* You can enter now as it's just breaking out of its double bottom base with higher than average volume and it printed a pocket pivot
* If you're looking for a better entry you can look for one around the 290.5 area as that should hold as support
* One thing to keep in mind is that there are two more historical areas of resistance that will come in the way before we hit the target
* Look for confirming price action around those levels before adding to the position
* Or, if we see lots of rejection around those levels, consider exiting the position earlier

* This stock usually has local tops when the price closes around 11.93% above its 50 EMA
* Consider selling into strength if the price closes 11.73% to 12.13% (or higher) above its 50 EMA
* The last closing price is 6.9% away from its 50 EMA
