From a technical standpoint, this stock is gapping up big today on solid volume. This move in shares of ARBA today have taken the stock back above its 50-day and 200-day moving averages, which is bullish.

Traders should now watch for a sustained move and close above some near-term overhead resistance at $33.43 to $34.20 on high volume. Look for volume that's tracking in close to or above 895,521 shares in the coming days or weeks if we don't get that breakout trigger today.
