From a technical perspective, HITK is ripping back above its 50-day moving average of $30.23 here with above average volume. Whenever any stock makes a powerful move with heavy volume above a key moving average, then it should be considered bullish technical price action. This move today is quickly pushing HITK within range of triggering a near-term breakout trade. That trade will hit once HITK takes out some near-term overhead resistance at $33.21 with high volume.

Traders should now look for a long-biased trade as long as HITK is trending above its 50-day and once it takes out $33.21 with volume. Look for a sustained move or close above $33.21 with volume that's near or above 93,608 shares. If we get that action soon, then look for HITK to re-test and possibly take out its 200-day moving average of $35.20.
