Today's Volume: 121,000Average Volume: 108,277 Volume % Change: 107%. From a technical perspective, PRAA is moving sharply higher here with above average volume. This move has now pushed PRAA into major breakout territory since the stock has taken out some near-term overhead resistance at $74 to $74.97. Traders should continue to look for long-biased trades as long as PRAA is trending above $74 to $74.97 with strong upside volume flows. I would consider any upside volume day that registers near or above 108,277 shares as bullish. If we continue to see that action, then PRAA should easily re-test its next significant overhead resistance levels at $82.50 to $85.
