3 Stocks Spiking on Big Volume


VirnetX (VHC) develops software and technology solutions for securing real-time communications over the Internet. It currently own 20 patents in the U.S. and 26 foreign patents. This stock is trading up 1.9% at $36.07 in recent trading.

Today's Volume: 1.65 million

Average Volume: 780,433

Volume % Change: 129%

From a technical perspective, VHC is moving modestly higher here right above its 50-day moving average of $34.22 with above-average volume. This move is quickly pushing shares of VHC within range of triggering a major breakout trade, which will hit if VHC manages to take out some near-term overhead resistance levels at $36.60 to $37.65 with high volume. At last check, VHC has hit an intraday high of $36.84 and volume is well above its three-month average action of 780,433 shares.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in VHC as long as it's trending above its 50-day at $34.22, and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that hits near or above 780,433 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then VHC will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance level at $41.93. Any move above $41.93 would then push shares of VHC into new 52-week-high territory, which is bullish technical price action.

Heartware International

Heartware International (HTWR - Get Report) is developing a family of implantable left ventricular assist devices for the treatment of advanced heart failure. This stock is trading up 1.4% at $87.68 in recent trading.

Today's Volume: 841,000

Average Volume: 189,975

Volume % Change: 606%

From a technical perspective, HTWR is bouncing modestly higher here right above some near-term support at $85.51 with heavy upside volume. This move has started to push shares of HTWR back above its 200-day moving average of $87.38 and it's quickly pushing the stock within range of triggering a near-term breakout trade. That trade will hit if HTWR manages to clear its 50-day moving average at $88.82 and then once it takes out more resistance at $88.33 with high volume.
