Volume % Change: 121% >>5 Stocks Poised to Break Out From a technical perspective, SLCA is bouncing higher here right above some near-term support at $20.03 with decent upside volume. This move is quickly pushing shares of SLCA within range of triggering a near-term breakout trade. That trade will hit if SLCA manages to clear its 50-day moving average at $22.20 with high volume. Traders should now look for long-biased trades in SLCA as long as it's trending above $20.03, and then once it sustains a move or close above $22.20 with volume that hits near or above 1.53 million shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then SLCA will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels $24.50 to $25, or even $26.
