Today's Volume: 550,000

Average Volume: 173,089

>>5 Big Trades From the Financial Sector

From a technical perspective, IBKC is gapping sharply higher here back above its 50-day at $46.81, and right into its 200-day at $49.34 with above-average volume. This move is quickly pushing IBKC within range of triggering a near-term breakout trade. That trade will hit once IBKC manages to take out some near-term overhead resistance at $49.57 with high volume.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in IBKC as long as its trending above its 50-day, and then once it sustains a move or close above $49.34 to $49.57 with volume that hits near or above 173,089 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then look for IBKC to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at $51.50 to $51.87, and possibly even $53.21.
