Today's Volume: 62.6 millionAverage Volume: 36.4 million Volume % Change: 257% >>3 Internet Stocks Ready to Move Higher From a technical perspective, FB is gapping up sharply here with monster volume. This move has pushed FB into breakout territory, since the stock has taken out some near-term overhead resistance at $19.98. Traders should now look for long-biased trades in FB as long as it's trending above $19.98 with strong upside volume flows. I would consider any upside volume day that registers near or above 36.4 million shares as bullish. If FB can hold that trend, then this stock has a great chance of re-testing or possibly taking out its next significant overhead resistance levels at $22.45 to $23.42.
