Mere days off news its CEO Jim Murren has stepped downMGM Resorts International (NYSE:MGM) is now buzzing after revealing it fell victim to a data breach in 2019. Reportedly the information of 10.6 million guests was compromised, though major financial systems were not affected. In response, MGM is down 0.2% at $32.11, at last check. 

MGM Resorts stock has been running wild on the charts. At the end of 2018, MGM hit a bottom of $21.62, and since has traveled in a series of higher lows, touching a peak of $34.63 mid-January. The equity has also continually ran into the overhead resistance at the 30-day moving average, which has capped multiple breakout attempts since its loss of support following the aforementioned peak.
