Today's Volume: 5.9 millionAverage Volume: 8.1 million Volume % Change: 50% >>5 Huge Stocks That Could Slingshot Higher From a technical perspective, NTAP is moving to the upside here with decent volume. This move is quickly pushing NTAP within range of triggering a major breakout trade. That trade will trigger once NTAP clears some near-term overhead resistance levels at $34.19 and its 200-day moving average of $36.48 with high volume. Traders should now look for long-biased trades once NTAP sustains a move or close above those levels with volume that's near or above 8,100,030 shares. At last check, NTAP has hit an intraday high of $34.54 and volume is about 2 million below its three-month average action of 8.1 million shares. Keep in mind you can buy NTAP off weakness and anticipate that breakout, as long as some near-term support at $32.93 to $32.50 holds. If that breakout triggers soon, then NTAP will have a great chance of re-testing or possibly taking out its next major overhead resistance levels at $38 to $41.05.
