5 Unusual Volume Spikes to Trade

Today's Volume: 7.33 million

Average Volume: 4.55 million

Volume % Change: 180%

Shares of CIEN are soaring higher today after AT&T said it plans to spend $14 billion on network expansion over the next three years.

From a technical perspective, CIEN is bouncing strongly to the upside here right off its 50-day moving average of $13.60 with monster volume. This move has also pushed CIEN right below its 200-day moving average of $14.81. Shares of CIEN are now moving within range of triggering a major breakout trade. That trade will hit once CIEN manages to take out its 200-day at $14.81 and then some more past resistance levels at $14.95 to $15 with high volume.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in CIEN as long as it's trending above its 50-day at $13.60, and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that hits near or above 4.55 million shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then CIEN will set up to re-fill a previous gap down zone from late August that started at around $17. That gap could get filled quickly, so make sure to be ready if that breakout triggers in the near future

This stock has been trending sideways for the last month and change, with shares moving between $35.27 on the downside and $40.79 on the upside. With shares GGC trending up here, the stock is now moving within range of triggering a near-term breakout trade above the high-end of its recent sideways chat pattern.
