Stocks in this article: MTRXSODAPCLNROG

SodaStream International

SodaStream International ( SODA) is engaged in developing, manufacturing and marketing home beverage carbonation systems and related products. This stock is trading up 7.3% at $59.56 in recent trading.

From a technical perspective, SODA is soaring higher here and breaking out above some near-term overhead resistance at $56.62 with above-average volume. This move has started to push shares of SODA into new 52-week high territory, which is bullish technical price action.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in SODA as long as it's trending above $56.62 with strong upside volume flows. I would consider any upside volume day that registers near or above its three-month average action of 919,761 shares as bullish. If SODA can maintain this trend, then this stock will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at $65 to $70.

Priceline.com

Priceline.com ( PCLN) is an online travel company that offers its customers a range of travel services, including hotel rooms, car rentals, airline tickets, vacation packages, cruises and destination services. This stock is trading up 3.7% at $764.95 in recent trading.

Today's Volume: 1.61 million
Average Volume: 608,173
Volume % Change: 312%

Shares of PCLN are moving higher today after the company said its first quarter profit and revenue came in ahead of Wall Street expectations, due to hotel and international business improvements.

>>5 Stocks Under $10 Set to Soar

From a technical perspective, PCLN is exploding higher here and breaking out above some near-term overhead resistance at $745.24 with above-average volume. This move has pushed shares of PCLN into new 52-week-high territory, which is bullish technical price action. Shares of PCLN are now quickly moving within range of triggering another major breakout trade. That trade will hit if PCLN manages to take out some past overhead resistance at $774.96 with high volume.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in PCLN as long as it's trending above $745.24 and then once it sustains a move or close above today's high of $769.67 to $774.96 with volume that hits near or above 608,173 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then PCLN will set up to trend well north of $800 in the near future.
