Average Volume: 237,065

From a technical perspective, VCRA is bouncing higher here right above its 50-day moving average of $25.54 and back above its 200-day moving average of $26.47 with decent volume.

>>3 Big Tech Stocks to Trade (or Not)

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in VCRA as long as it's trending above its 50-day at $25.54 or its 200-day at $26.47 and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that hits near or above 237,065 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then VCRA will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at $28.52 to $30.
