Today's Range: $4.87-$5.5052-week Range: $4.14-$10.05 Volume: 5.7 million Three-Month Average Volume: 2.4 million Shares of OCZ are soaring higher today after Fudzilla.com, a hardware industry blog, reported that Seagate (STX) is considering acquiring OCZ to boost its SSD product portfolio. The Web site said a deal could be announced as early as next week. From a technical perspective, OCZ has recently marked a double bottom chart pattern at around $4.14 to $4.21. This move today has now gapped OCZ back above its 50-day moving average of $5.14 with monster volume. Traders should now look to play the next major breakout trade for OCZ. That trade will hit once the stock takes its 200-day moving average of $6.76 with high volume. Traders should look for long-biased trades in OCZ as long as it holds its trend above the 50-day at $5.14, and then once it sustains a move or close over $6.76 with volume that's near or above 2.4 million shares. If we get that breakout soon, then OCZ should trend higher back towards its next significant overhead resistance levels at $7.40 to $8.
