Alpha Natural Resources, Inc.(NYSE:ANR) broke through its short term resistance level of $7.12 on solid volume and looks ready to go higher. The stock could touch an upside target of $8.1 in the short term. Looking at the technical chart we start to see now some signals of rebound as the chart shows positive momentum is back. In addition, the 20-day moving average recently crossed on top over 50 day moving average which is a very positive sign. Short-term outlook for the stock is bullish with share price above 20 and 50 daily moving averages. Let's see if tomorrow the stock will confirm the breakout. Short-term investors can buy with a stop at $6.8 and long-term investors can hold with a stop at $6.19. ANR will move quickly, so watch the stock closely on Wednesday.
