4 IT Stocks Rising on Unusually Heavy Trading

Stocks in this article: DDDFBSSYSCVLT

Today's Volume: 90.97 million

Average Volume: 54.73 million

Volume % Change: 149%

From a technical perspective, FB is ripping higher here with monster upside volume and its moving into breakout territory above some near-term overhead resistance at $24.25. This move has now pushed FB into its previous gap down zone from last July that started around $27.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in FB as long as it's trending near or above its breakout level of $24.25 with strong upside volume flows. I would consider any upside volume day that registers near or above 54.73 million shares as bullish. If FB can maintain this trend, then this stock will set up to re-test or possibly take its next major overhead resistance levels at $27 to $29.50.

Stratasys (SSYS)

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in SSYS as long as it's trending above its previous breakout level of $73.32 with strong upside volume flows. I would consider any upside volume day that registers near or above 621,498 shares as bullish. If SSYS can maintain this trend, then the stock will set up to trade north of $80 in the near future.
