>>5 Stocks Spiking on Big Volume
From a technical perspective, SNTA bounced sharply higher here right off its 50-day moving average of $6.26 with decent upside volume. This stock recently pulled back from its high of $7.30 to its low of $5.90. Shares of SNTA are now starting to move back above its 50-day and within range of triggering a near-term breakout trade. That trade will hit if SNTA manages to take out some key overhead resistance levels at $7.30 to $7.85 with high volume.
Traders should now look for long-biased trades in SNTA as long as it's trending above its 50-day at $6.26 or above support at $5.90 and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that hits near or above 1.79 million shares. If that breakout hits soon, then SNTA will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at $8.25 to $9.
