Today's Volume: 425,000Average Volume: 266,243 Volume % Change: 239% From a technical perspective, DIOD is bouncing modestly here right off some near-term support at $19 with above-average volume. This move is quickly pushing DIOD within range of triggering a near-term breakout trade. That trade will hit once DIOD takes out some near-term overhead resistance levels at $19.82 to $20 with high volume. Traders should now look for long-biased trades once DIOD sustains a move or close above those levels with volume that's near or above 266,243 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then DIOD will have a great chance of re-testing or possibly taking out its next major overhead resistance levels at $20.75 to its 200-day moving average of $21.14. Any high-volume move above $21.14 will setup DIOD to re-test more resistance at $23. Keep in mind that traders can look to go long DIOD as long as it's trending above its 50-day at $18.49 to simply anticipate that breakout.
