This stock ran into some selling pressure recently at around $34.85 a share, and subsequently it has dropped back below its 50-day moving average of $32.88 with heavy volume. Shares of FIS have some near-term support zones at around $31.61 to $30.77 a share. If you're bullish on FIS, then I would look for long-biased trades once this stock moves back above its 50-day moving average of $32.88 a share with high volume. Look for volume on that move that registers near or above its three-month average action of 1,644,760 shares. If we get that move soon, then look for FIS to possibly re-test or take out its recent high of $34.85 a share. I would simply avoid FIS or look for short-biased trades if it fails to trigger that move back above its 50-day, and then takes out those major support zones at $31.61 to $30.77 a share with heavy volume. If we get that action, then FIS will setup to re-test and possibly take out its 200-day moving average of $29.59 a share.
