Seagate Technology (STX - Get Report) designs, manufactures, markets and sells hard disk drives. This stock is trading up 3.2% at $33.83 in recent trading.

Today's Volume: 10.4 million

Average Volume: 13.1 million

Volume % Change: 50%

Shares of STX are moving notably higher today after Lizard Capital started coverage on the stock with a $38 price target.

From a technical perspective, STX is ramping higher here with decent volume. This move is coming after a massive run higher, since STX has soared from its June low of $21.62 to today's high of $34.24. This move has also pushed STX into extremely overbought territory, since its current relative strength index reading is 80.20.

Traders should now only look for long-biased trades if STX is trending above its recent breakout level of $32.55 with strong upside volume flows. I would consider any upside volume day that registers near or above 13,080,800 shares as bullish. If STX can hold that trend, then this stock could hit $35 to $40 in near future.

However, considering how overbought STX is, traders might want to look for short-term short trades if that breakout level fails to hold.
