>> 3 Big Stocks on Traders' Radars
From a technical perspective, NSM jumped higher here right off its 50-day moving average of $40.97 with above-average volume. This move is quickly pushing shares of NSM within range of triggering a near-term breakout trade. That trade will hit if NSM manages to take out some near-term overhead resistance at $44.35 with high volume.
Traders should now look for long-biased trades in NSM as long as it's trending above its 50-day at $40.97 or above more near-term support at $40, and then once it sustains a move or close above $44.35 with volume that's near or above 1.17 million shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then NSM set up to re-test or possibly take out its all-time high at $46.91. Any high-volume move above $46.91 will then give NSM a chance to hit or trend north of $50.
