Today's Volume: 26.4 millionAverage Volume: 17 million Volume % Change: 161% From a technical perspective, VALE is gapping up big here with monster volume. This move is quickly pushing VALE within range of its 50-day moving average of $18.33. Traders should now look for long-biased trades in VALE once it breaks out above some overhead resistance levels at $18.33 to $18.40 with high volume. Look for volume off a sustained move or close above those levels that hits near or above 17 million shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then VALE has a great chance of re-testing or possibly taking out its next major overhead resistance levels at $19.25 to $19.78, or possibly even its 200-day moving average of $21.10.
