Shares of FB are exploding to the upside today after the company reported better-than-expected third quarter results and improved mobile ad sales.

>>5 Hated Stocks Poised to Pop on Earnings

From a technical perspective, FB is gapping sharply higher here back above its 50-day at $20.24, and into breakout territory above some near-term overhead resistance levels at $22.59 to $23.37 with monster upside volume. This move is quickly pushing FB within range of filling a previous gap zone from back in late July.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in FB once it manages to take out its gap down day high at around $25 with high volume. Look for a sustained move or close above $25 with volume that hits near or above 48.2 million shares. If FB triggers that breakout soon, then look for this stock to fill that gap and potentially trade back towards $27.50 to $29.50 in the near future. Any high-volume move above $29.50 will put $32.50 to $33.45 into focus for FB.
