Stocks in this article: ISISVIPSLQDTDALMELI

Monday's Volume: 2.17 million
Three-Month Average Volume: 645,972
Volume % Change: 216%

>>4 Red-Flag Stocks to Sell This Fall

From a technical perspective, VIPS soared sharply higher here right off some near-term support at $42.50 with heavy upside volume. This move pushed shares of VIPS into breakout territory, since the stock took out some near-term overhead resistance levels at $45 to $45.27 with high volume. Shares of VIPS are now quickly moving within range of triggering another big breakout trade. That trade will hit if VIPS manages to take out Monday's intraday high of $48.40 and then once it clears its all-time high at $50.43 with high volume.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in VIPS as long as it's trending above $45 and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that hits near or above 645,972 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then VIPS will set up to enter new all-time high territory above $50.43, which is bullish technical price action. Some possible upside targets off that breakout are $55 to $57.

From a technical perspective, LQDT skyrocketed higher here right off its 50-day moving average of $30.94 with strong upside volume. This move briefly saw shares of LQDT trend back above its 200-day moving average at $34.60, before it closed just below that level at $34.44. Shares of LQDT are now quickly moving within range of triggering a big breakout trade. That trade will hit if LQDT manages to take out Monday's intraday high of $35.21 and then once it clears some more near-term overhead resistance at $35.71 with high volume.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in LQDT as long as it's trending above $32.67 or above $31.60 and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that hits near or above 402,622 shares. If we get that breakout soon, then LQDT will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at $38 to $40.90.
