Shares of ASGN are moving sharply higher today after the company reported record quarterly revenues up 29% year-over-year and 3% sequentially.

>>5 Stocks Setting Up to Break Out

From a technical perspective, ASGN is skyrocketing here on above average volume. This move is quickly pushing ASGN within range of trigging a major breakout trade. That trade will hit once ASGN takes out some near-term overhead resistance at $18.93 with high-volume. At last check, ASGN has hit an intraday high of $19.25.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades if ASGN can sustain a move or close above $18.93 with volume that's near or above 302,765 shares. As long as ASGN is trending above $18.93 with strong upside volume flows, then this stock can potentially trade up towards $20 to $24.50 in the near future.
