>>5 Tech Stocks to Watch if QE3 Happens

From a technical perspective, ITRI is ripping higher here back above both its 50-day and 200-day moving averages with above-average volume. This move is quickly pushing the stock within range of triggering a near-term breakout trade. That trade will hit once ITRI takes out some near-term overhead resistance at $41 with volume.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades as long as ITRI is trending above its 50-day at $39.13, and once it sustains a move or close above $41 with volume that's near or above 435,915 shares. If we get that action soon, then look for ITRI to possibly hit its next significant overhead resistance level at $45.12 in the near future.
