>>4 Big Stocks on Traders' Radars

From a technical perspective, EXPE spiked higher here right above its recent low of $45.75 with heavy upside volume. This stock recently gapped down sharply from $66 to that $45.75 low with heavy downside volume flows. That move has now pushed shares of EXPE into oversold territory, since its current relative strength index reading is 32.95. After tagging that $45.75 low, shares of EXPE have started to rebound and are now quickly moving within range of triggering a near-term breakout trade. That breakout will hit if EXPE manages to take out some near-term overhead resistance levels at $50 to its gap down day high at $50.90 with high volume.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in EXPE as long as it's trending above $48 or $47 and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that's near or above 3.40 million shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then EXPE will set up to re-fill some of its previous gap down zone that started at $66. Some possible upside targets if EXPE gets into that gap with volume are $55 to $56, or even its 50-day at $58.47.
