>>5 Stocks Triggering Breakout Trades
From a technical perspective, SNSS trended modestly higher here right above its 50-day moving average of $5.35 with above-average volume. This move is quickly pushing shares of SNSS within range of triggering a major breakout trade. That trade will hit if SNSS manages to take out some near-term overhead resistance levels at $5.75 to $6.05 with high volume.
Traders should now look for long-biased trades in SNSS as long as it's trending above its 50-day at $5.35 and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that hits near or above 345,849 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then SNSS will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at $6.54 to its 52-week high at $6.85. Any high-volume move above those levels will then put $7 to $8 into range for shares of SNSS.
