3 Stocks Rising on Unusual Volume

EnerNOC

EnerNOC ( ENOC) is engaged in providing energy management applications, services and products for smart grid, which include comprehensive demand response, data-driven energy efficiency, energy price and risk-management applications, services and products. This stock closed up 3.9% at $16.76 in Friday's trading session.

Friday's Volume: 944,000
Three-Month Average Volume: 222,785
Volume % Change: 303%

From a technical perspective, ENOC ripped higher here right off its 200-day moving average of $15.67 with strong upside volume. This move briefly pushed shares of ENOC into breakout territory, since the stock flirted with some near-term overhead resistance at $16.98. Shares of ENOC closed just below that level at $16.76. Market players should now look for a continuation move higher in the short-term if ENOC can manage to take out Friday's high of $17.33 with volume.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in ENOC as long as it's trending above its 50-day at $15.42 and then once it sustains a move or close above Friday's high of $17.33 with volume that hits near or above 222,785 shares. If we get that move soon, then ENOC will set up to re-test or possibly take out its 52-week high at $19.08 to more past resistance at $22.38.

Scientific Games

Scientific Games ( SGMS) provides customized, end-to-end gaming solutions to lottery and gaming organizations globally. This stock closed up 3.6% to $18.05 in Friday's trading session.

Friday's Volume: 2.12 million
Three-Month Average Volume: 547,382
Volume % Change: 277%

From a technical perspective, SGMS trended higher here right above its 50-day moving average of $16.80 with strong upside volume. This move briefly pushed shares of SGMS into breakout and new 52-week-high territory, since the stock flirted with some near-term overhead resistance at $19.19. Shares of SGMS closed below its intraday high of $19.48 with shares finishing the session at $18.05. Market players should now look for a continuation move higher in the short-term if SGMS can manage to take out Friday's high of $19.48 with volume.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in SGMS as long as it's trending above Friday's low of $17.19 or above its 50-day at $16.80 and then once it sustains a move or close above Friday's high of $19.48 with volume that hits near or above 547,382 shares. If we get that move soon, then SGMS will set up to enter new 52-week-high territory, which is bullish technical price action. Some possible upside targets off that move are $25 to $27.
