Monday's Volume: 599,000
Three-Month Average Volume: 233,948
Volume % Change: 150%

From a technical perspective, POST spiked modestly higher here and touched its all-time high at $49.32 with above-average volume. This stock has been uptrending strong for the last two months, with shares moving higher from its low of $38.31 to its intraday high of $49.32. During that uptrend, shares of POST have been making mostly higher lows and higher highs, which is bullish technical price action.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in POST as long as it's trending above some near-term support levels at $47 or at $46 and then once it sustains a move or close above its all-time high at $49.32 with volume that's near or above 233,948 shares. If we get that move soon, then POST will set up to enter new all-time-high territory, which is bullish technical price action. Some possible upside targets off that move are $55 to $57.

Westinghouse Air Brake Technologies

Volume % Change: 65%

From a technical perspective, WAB trended modestly higher here right above some near-term support at $66 with above-average volume. This move is quickly pushing shares of WAB within range of triggering a near-term breakout trade. That trade will hit if WAB manages to take out Monday's high of $68.64 and its 52-week high at $86.66 with high volume.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in WAB as long as it's trending above support at $66 or above its 50-day at $64.77 and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that's near or above 413,858 shares.
