Today's Volume: 369,000Average Volume: 109,102 Volume % Change: 442% From a technical perspective, PATK is running sharply higher here and continue on its big-time gap-up momentum from yesterday. This move is quickly pushing PATK within range of triggering a major near-term breakout trade. That trade will hit once PATK takes out some near-term overhead resistance at $13.30 with high-volume. Traders should now look for long-biased trades if PATK can sustain a move or close over $13.30 with volume that's near or above 109,102 shares. If we get that action soon, look for PATK to continue its trend higher towards $15 to $17 in the near future. Traders should avoid this stock or look for short-biased trades if PATK moves back below its gap-up day low of $10.50 with heavy volume, or even below today-s low of $11.30.
