Today's Volume: 937,000Average Volume: 495,783 Volume % Change: 192% >>5 Toxic Stocks to Sell Now From a technical perspective, AFG is moving modestly higher here with above-average volume. This move is quickly pushing AFG within range of triggering a near-term breakout trade. That trade will hit once AFG manages to take out some near-term overhead resistance at $39.48 with high volume. Traders should now look for long-biased trades in AFG as long as it's trending above some near-term support at $38.26, and then once it sustains a move or close above $39.48 with volume that hits near or above 495,783 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then AFG will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance level at $40.54. Keep in mind that any move above $40.54 will push AFG into new 52-week high territory, which would be bullish technical price action.
