Trade-Ideas LLC identified

Quiksilver

(

ZQK

) as a strong on high relative volume candidate. In addition to specific proprietary factors, Trade-Ideas identified Quiksilver as such a stock due to the following factors:

  • ZQK has an average dollar-volume (as measured by average daily share volume multiplied by share price) of $3.6 million.
  • ZQK has traded 1.2 million shares today.
  • ZQK is trading at 13.04 times the normal volume for the stock at this time of day.
  • ZQK is trading at a new high 18.24% above yesterday's close.

'Strong on High Relative Volume' stocks are worth watching because major volume moves tend to indicate underlying activity such as M&A events, material stock news, analyst upgrades, insider buying, buying from 'superinvestors,' or that hedge funds and momentum traders are piling into a stock ahead of a catalyst. Regardless of the impetus behind the price and volume action, when a stock moves with strength and volume it can indicate the start of a new trend on which early investors can capitalize. In the event of a well-timed trading opportunity, combining technical indicators with fundamental trends and a disciplined trading methodology should help you take the first steps towards investment success.
