From a technical perspective, CTSH is currently trending below both its 50-day and 200-day moving averages, which is bearish. This stock has been trending sideways for the last two months, with shares moving between $61.29 a share on the downside and $68.73 a share on the upside. A high-volume move above its recent range could trigger a near-term breakout trade for shares of CTSH. If you're in the bull camp on CTSH, then look for long-biased as long as this stock is trending above some key near-term support levels at $62.49 or $61.29 and then once it breaks out above some near-term overhead resistance levels at $66.66 to $68.73 a share with high volume. Look for a sustained move or close above those levels with volume that registers near or above its three-month average action of 4.07 million shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then CTSH will set up to re-test or possibly take out its 200-day moving average at $70.82 a share. Any high-volume move above that level will then give CTSH a chance to trend back towards its next major overhead resistance levels at $76 to $78 a share.
