7 Stocks Rising on Unusual Volume

Stocks in this article: PDFSGEOYLGNDEXLPHCSG

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in LGND as long as it's trending above some key near-term support at $19.03, and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that hits near or above 143,311 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then LGND will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at $22 to $23. Any move above those levels could then put $25 into focus for shares of LGND.

Exterran Partners (EXLP)

This company is engaged in the natural gas compression and a provider of services and equipment for oil & gas production, processing, treating, transportation and storage. This stock is trading up 2.6% at $22.60 in recent trading.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in EXLP as long as it's trending above its 50-day at $21.45, and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that hits near or above 115,926 million shares. If that breakout hits soon, then EXLP will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at $24 to $24.88.
