Technically, Sundial Growers shares seem to have recently spiked to complete an upward breakout from a sideways channel formation. As a result, the stock has rallied deep into overbought conditions, pushing the price above the 100-day moving average.

Therefore, investors could target short-term pullbacks at about $0.77, or lower at $0.65. On the other hand, if the rally continues, Sundial shares could find solid resistance at $0.96, or higher at $1.06.
