Today's Volume: 6.75 millionAverage Volume: 4.25 million Volume % Change: 163% Shares of SLM are ripping to the upside today after Janney Capital upgraded the stock to buy from neutral. From a technical perspective, SLM is moving sharply higher here with above average volume. This move is quickly pushing SLM within range of triggering a major breakout trade. That trade will hit once SLM takes out some near-term overhead resistance at $16.44, and then some past overhead resistance at $16.74 with high volume. Traders should now look for long-biased trades once SLM sustains a move or close above those levels with volume that's near or above 4,247,980 shares. If we get that action soon, then SLM will enter new 52-week-high territory once it clears $17.00, which would be bullish technical price action.
