Transcept Pharmaceuticals (TSPT) is a specialty pharmaceutical company focused on the development and commercialization of products that address therapeutic needs in neuroscience. This stock is trading up 8.6% at $9.99 in recent trading.

Today's Volume: 365,000

Average Volume: 122,657

Volume % Change: 768%

From a technical perspective, TSPT has started to trigger a breakout trade today now that the stock is moving above some past overhead resistance at $9.37 with heavy volume.

>>5 Stocks Setting Up to Break Out

Traders should continue to look for long-biased trades as long as TSPT is trending above $9.37. Look for a sustained high-volume move and close over $9.37 and near its daily highs to signal that TSPT wants to trend higher.

If we get that action today, then look for TSPT to re-test its next significant overhead resistance levels at $11.40 to $11.88 in the near future.
