Today's Volume: 196,000Average Volume: 248,032 Volume % Change: 74% Shares of BV are ripping higher today after the company announced it acquired PowerReviews Inc. for about $151.9 million in a cash and stock deal. From a technical perspective, BV is bouncing sharply here off of some previous support at around $15 with decent volume. This move is quickly pushing BV within range of triggering a major breakout trade. That trade will hit once BV takes out some near-term overhead resistance at $16.92, and then its 50-day moving average of $18.25 with high-volume. Traders should now look for long-biased trades once BV sustains a move or close above those levels with volume that's near or above 248,032 shares. If we get that action soon, then this stock has a great chance of trading above $20 in the near future. On the flipside, BV should be avoided or a shorted if it breaks below some major support at $14.48 with high-volume.
