From a technical perspective, AFFY is ripping higher here with above-average volume. This move is coming after AFFY recently broke out above some near-term overhead resistance at $22 with high volume. This action is also starting to push AFFY into overbought territory, since the stock has a relative strength index reading of 81. Overbought can always get more overbought, so traders should continue to look for more upside in AFFY.
Traders should now look for long-biased trades in AFFY as long as its trending above today's low of $23.59 with strong upside volume flows. I would consider any upside volume day that registers near or above 922,672 shares as bullish. If AFFY can maintain that trend, then this stock will setup to trade north of $30 in the near future.
