>>5 Stocks With Big Insider Buying

From a technical perspective, QLYS bounced higher here right above its 50-day moving average of $20.93 with above-average volume. This stock has been trending sideways and consolidating for the last two months, with shares moving between $20.34 on the downside and $23.21 on the upside. Shares of QLYS are now starting to move within range of triggering a big breakout trade above the upper-end of its recent sideways trading chart pattern. That breakout will hit if QLYS manages to take out some near-term overhead resistance levels at $23.01 to $23.18, and then once it clears its all-time high at $23.21 with high volume.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in QLYS as long as it's trending above near-term support at $22 or above its 50-day at $20.93 and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that's near or above 154,514 shares. If that breakout hits soon, then QLYS will set up to enter new all-time-high territory above $23.21, which is bullish technical price action. Some possible upside targets off that breakout are $27 to $30.
