Micron Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ:MU) manufactures and markets dynamic random access memory chips (DRAMs), Flash Memory, other semiconductor components, and memory modules.
The stock was trading in a well defined range with support at $7.63 and resistance at $8.06. Given that this range was broken, traders will be closely monitoring Micron's price action to gather clues on the future direction.
From a technical perspective, it can be expected that previous resistance becomes support, as the new range gets defined. However, given that Micron Technology is still near the broken resistance level, traders will be focusing on the $8.06 level to see if the stock holds the breakout without rolling over.
