Today's Volume: 361,000Average Volume: 236,637 Volume % Change: 169% From a technical perspective, HMIN is bouncing modestly higher here right above its 50-day moving average of $26.49 with above-average volume. This stock has been trending sideways for the past month, with shares moving between $25.83 on the downside and $29.67 on the upside. This bounce today is starting to push HMIN within range of triggering a breakout above the upper-end of that range. That breakout will trigger once HMIN clears $29 to $29.67 with high volume. Traders should now look for long-biased trades in HMIN as long as it's trending above its 50-day at $26.49, and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that hits near or above 236,637 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then HMIN will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at $32.95 to $33.27. Any high-volume move above those levels will then put $35.89 into focus for HMIN.
