Often when above-average volume moves into an equity, it precedes a large spike in volatility.>>5 Stocks Poised for Breakouts
Three-Month Average Volume: 562,768
Volume % Change: 165% From a technical perspective, TEAR ripped sharply higher here right above its 200-day moving average of $9.77 with strong upside volume. This move is quickly pushing shares of TEAR within range of triggering a big breakout trade above a key downtrend line that dates back to late July. That breakout will hit if TEAR manages to take out Friday's high of $11.50 and then once it clears more near-term overhead resistance at $12.39 with high volume. Traders should now look for long-biased trades in TEAR as long as it's trending above Friday's low of $10.22 or above its 200-day at $9.77 and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that hits near or above 562,768 shares. If that breakout hits soon, then TEAR will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at $13.80 to its 52-week high at $15.18.
