ACIA closed trading yesterday at $67.70 and spiked up after market to $81.50, equivalent to a 20% increase from the closing price.

For trading purposes, I would like to see ACIA open trading on Friday above $77.00 and if it does I would be looking to take a long position at the bell. My stop loss would be $1.00 from my entry position fearing anything more than that and the stock would start to fill in the gap up.
