3 Stocks Rising on Unusual Volume

ManpowerGroup

ManpowerGroup (MAN) offers permanent, temporary and contract recruitment services, assessment and selection services, training and development services and outsourcing services, among others. This stock closed up 0.95% at $66.61 in Wednesday's trading session.

Wednesday's Volume: 1.14 million
Three-Month Average Volume: 554,848
Volume % Change: 112%

>>5 Stocks Set to Soar on Bullish Earnings

From a technical perspective, MAN trended higher here right above some near-term support at $66 with above-average volume. This move pushed shares of MAN into new 52-week-high territory, which is bullish technical price action. This stock also flirted with its three-year high of $66.79, before closing just below that level at $66.61.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in MAN as long as it's trending above some near-term support levels at $66 or $65 and then once it sustains a move or close above Wednesday's high of $67.22 with volume that's near or above 554,848 shares. If we get that move soon, then MAN will set up to enter new 52-week-high and three-year-high territory, which is bullish technical price action. Some possible upside targets off that breakout are $70 to $75.

Spectranetics

Spectranetics (SPNC) develops, manufactures, markets and distributes single-use medical devices used in minimally invasive procedures within the cardiovascular system. This stock closed up 3.3% at $19.50 in Wednesday's trading session.

Wednesday's Volume: 543,000
Three-Month Average Volume: 298,539
Volume % Change: 90%

>>5 Rocket Stocks to Buy for Earnings Season

From a technical perspective, SPNC ripped higher here right off its 50-day moving average of $18.96 with above-average volume. This move is quickly pushing shares of SPNC within range of triggering a near-term breakout trade. That trade will hit if SPNC manages to take out some near-term overhead resistance levels at $19.60 to $20 with high volume. Shares of SPNC hit an intraday high on Wednesday of $19.62 and volume was well above its three-month average action of 298,539 shares.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in SPNC as long as it's trending above its 50-day at $18.96 or above some more near-term support at $18.37 and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that's near or above 298,539 shares. If that breakout hits soon, then SPNC will set up to re-test or possibly take out its 52-week high at $20.99. Any high-volume move above that level will then give SPNC a chance to tag $25.
