>>5 Tech Stocks to Watch for Breakout Trades
From a technical perspective, NICE trended modestly higher here back above its 50-day moving average of $37.69 with heavy upside volume. This move is quickly pushing shares of NICE within range of triggering a big breakout trade. That trade will hit if NICE manages to take out some near-term overhead resistance at $38.90 to its three-year high at $39.89 with high volume.
Traders should now look for long-biased trades in NICE as long as it's trending above its 50-day at $37.69 or above Wednesday's low of $36.91, and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that hits near or above 135,436 shares. If that breakout hits soon, then NICE will set up to enter new three-year high territory, which is bullish technical price action. Some possible upside targets off that move are $43 to $45.
