From a technical perspective, AAV is bouncing higher here right around some near-term support at $3.84 with lighter volume. This move is quickly pushing AAV within range of triggering a major breakout trade. That trade will hit once AAV manages to take out some key overhead resistance at $4.12 to $4.39 with high volume.
Traders should now look for long-biased trades in AAV as long as it’s trending above its 50-day at $3.65, and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that hits near or above 195,292 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then look for AAV to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at $4.87 to $5.52.
