AsiaInfo-Linkage (ASIA) is a provider of telecommunications software solutions and information technology, related services in the People's Republic of China. This stock is trading up 11.6% at $12.37 in recent trading.

Today's Volume: 620,000

Average Volume: 350,878

Volume % Change: 381%

>>5 Tech Stocks to Watch if QE3 Happens

From a technical perspective, ASIA is exploding higher as the stock moves back above its 50-day moving average of $11.44 with monster volume. This move is quickly pushing ASIA within range of triggering a near-term breakout trade. That trade will hit once ASIA takes out some near-term overhead resistance at $12.98 with high-volume. At last check, ASIA has hit an intraday high of $13.00 but has since then pulled back to near $12.40.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades once ASIA sustains a move or close above $12.98 with high volume. Look for volume on that move that hits near or above 350,878 shares. If we get that action today or soon, then look for ASIA to re-test and possibly take out its March high of $13.90.
