4 Stocks Rising on Unusual Volume

Today's Volume: 726,000

Average Volume: 547,049

Volume % Change: 128%

From a technical perspective, GDOT is ripping higher here right above some near-term support at $13.84 with above-average volume. This move has started to push shares of GDOT back above its 200-day moving average of $14.69 and it's moving the stock within range of triggering a major breakout trade. That trade will hit if GDOT manages to take out its 52-week high at $15.50 with high volume.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in GDOT as long as it's trending above its 200-day at $14.69 or above key near-term support at $13.84 and then once it sustains a move or close above $15.50 with volume that hits near or above 547,049 shares. If that breakout hits soon, then GDOT will set up to enter new 52-week-high territory, which is bullish technical price action. Some possible upside targets off that breakout are $17 to $18. Keep in mind that GDOT will move into a massive gap down zone above $15.50 from last July that started at $24.
