Actuate (BIRT) provides software and services to develop and deploy custom business Intelligence and information applications. This stock is trading up 8.2% to $7.04 in recent trading.
Today's Range: $6.58-$7.0652-Week Range: $4.95-$7.30 Volume: 134,000 Three-Month Average Volume: 216,730 From a technical perspective, BIRT is soaring here back above its 50-day moving average of $6.75 with light volume. This move is quickly pushing BIRT within range of triggering a major breakout trade. That trade will hit once BIRT manages to clear some past overhead resistance at $7.20 to $7.30 with high volume. Traders should now look for long-biased trades in BIRT as long as it's trending above its 50-day at $6.75, and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that's near or above 216,730 shares. If that breakout triggers soon for BIRT, then I expect to see this stock trend well north of $8 in the near future.
