Volume % Change: 179%

>>65 Big Stocks Ready to Slingshot Higher

From a technical perspective, SHLD is gapping up sharply here back above its 50-day moving average of $52.86 with above average volume. This move is quickly pushing SHLD within range of triggering a major breakout trade. That trade will hit once SHLD takes out some near-term overhead resistance levels at $55.50, and then its 200-day moving average of $56.24 with high volume.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in SHLD as long as its trending above its 50-day, and then once it sustains a move or close above $55.50 to $56.24 with volume that's near or above 727,055 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then look for SHLD to re-test and possibly take out its next major overhead resistance level at $62.95.
