MYL Technical Analysis

MYL opened trading yesterday at $37.47 which was up from the previous day's trading close of $37.21. MYL closed trading yesterday at $37.38 and spiked up after market to $38.20, equivalent to a 2% increase from the closing price. Taking a look at the daily chart we can see that the last time MYL traded above these levels we have to go back to December 13th when it traded at $38.30.

Taking a closer look at the daily chart we can see that before the spike up MYL had been in an overall downward trend dating back to August 18th when it traded at $49.32. MYL has a float of 434.18 million shares and traded below the normal daily trading volume on Thursday. For trading purposes, I would like to see MYL open trading on Friday above $37.90 and if it does I would be looking to take a long position at the bell. My stop loss would be $0.20 from my entry position fearing anything more than that and the stock would start to fill in the gap up.
