Three-Month Average Volume: 480,994
Volume % Change: 75% From a technical perspective, VC trended modestly higher here right above its 50-day moving average of $75.82 with above-average volume. This move is quickly pushing shares of VC within range of triggering a near-term breakout trade. That trade will hit if VC manages to take out some near-term overhead resistance at $78.09 to its 52-week high at $79.62 with high volume. Traders should now look for long-biased trades in VC as long as it's trending above Monday's low of $76.77 or above its 50-day at $75.82 and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that's near or above 480,994 shares. If that breakout hits soon, then VC will set up to enter new 52-week-high territory, which is bullish technical price action. Some possible upside targets off that breakout are $85 to $87.
