7 Stocks Rising on Unusual Volume

Stock quotes in this article: SFUN, IOSP, HTHT, IMOS, HAIN

Innospec (IOSP)

This company develops, manufactures, blends and markets fuel additives, personal care and fragrance products and other specialty chemicals. This stock is trading up 2.7% at $34.14 in recent trading.

Today's Volume: 104,000

Average Volume: 124,459

Volume % Change: 66%

From a technical perspective, IOSP is bouncing higher here right off some near-term support at $33 with decent volume. This move is quickly pushing IOSP within range of triggering a near-term breakout trade. That trade will hit if IOSP manages to clear its 52-week high of $34.87 with high volume.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in IOSP as long as it's trending above its 50-day at $32.08, and then once it sustains a move or close above $34.87 with volume that hits near or above 124,459 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then IOSP will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at $36.18 to $38.24.

Volume % Change: 65%

From a technical perspective, HTHT is trending higher here and moving back above its 50-day moving average of $16.42 with decent volume. This move is quickly pushing the stock within range of triggering a major breakout trade. That trade will hit if HTHT manages to clear some near-term overhead resistance levels at $16.69 to $17.09 and then once it takes out more overhead resistance levels at $17.47 to $17.55 with high volume. At last check, shares of HTHT have hit an intraday high of $16.75 and volume is above to surpass its three-month average action of 64.151 shares.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in HTHT as long as it's trending above $15, and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that hits near or above 64,151 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then HTHT will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at $18.33 to $18.95. Any high-volume move above those levels will then put $22.50 into focus for shares of HTHT.
