Volume % Change: 268%

>>Hedge Funds Hate These 5 Stocks -- but Should You?

From a technical perspective, QCOR is ramping higher here right off its 50-day moving average of $26.88 with monster upside volume. This move has started to push shares of QCOR into breakout territory, since the stock has taken out some near-term overhead resistance at $27.91. Shares of QCOR are now quickly moving within range of triggering another major breakout trade. That trade will hit if QCOR manages to take out some near-term overhead resistance levels at $30.39 to $32.50 with high volume.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in QCOR as long as it's trending above today's low of $27.55, and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that hits near or above 1.50 million shares. If that breakout hits soon, then QCOR will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance level at its 200-day moving average of $34.25. Any high-volume move above $34.25 could then send QCOR above $35 in the near future.
