From a technical standpoint, this stock is starting to trigger a big breakout today now that it's starting to move above some past overhead resistance at $30.02 to $30.24. Traders should watch to see how this stock closes today. Look for a close that puts the stock above $30.24 on high-volume. I would consider it very bullish if LKQX finishes within 30 cents of $31 on volume that's close to or above 728,097 shares. If we get that action, then look for much higher prices for this stock in the near future.
