Proto Labs (PRLB) is an online and technology-enabled quick-turn manufacturer of custom parts for prototyping and short-run production. This stock is trading up 4.7% at $32.74 in recent trading.

Today's Volume: 180,000

Average Volume: 195,230

Volume % Change: 122%

From a technical perspective, PRLB is moving up sharply here with decent volume. This move is quickly pushing PRLB within range of triggering a near-term breakout trade. That trade will hit once PRLB takes out its 50-day moving average of $33.78 with high volume.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in PRLB once it sustains a move or close above its 50-day with volume that's near or above 195,230 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then PRLB will have a great chance of re-testing or possibly taking out its next major overhead resistance levels at $37.29 to $41.10.

On the flip side, I would avoid PRLB or look for short-biased trades if it fails to trigger that breakout, and then drops below some near-term support at $30.33 to $28.22 with heavy volume.
