Today's Volume: 394,000Average Volume: 165,153 Volume % Change: 501% Shares of ISBC are ripping to the upside today after Barron's highlighted the stock in a report over the weekend, calling it a well-run, well-capitalized and growing bank selling at a discount price. >>5 Financial Stocks Hedge Funds Love From a technical perspective, ISBC is gapping up strong here with heavy volume, and it's breaking out above some near-term overhead resistance at $16.50. This move has now pushed ISBC into new 52-week high territory, which is bullish price action. Traders should now look for long-biased trades as long as ISBC is trending above that key breakout level of $16.50 with strong upside volume flows. I would consider any upside volume day that registers near or above 165,153 shares as bullish. If we continue to see ISBC hold that trend, then this stock has a great chance of tagging $20 in the near future. On the flipside, if ISBC moves back below $16.50 with heavy volume, then it will likely fill today's gap and head lower.
