Today's Range: $1.95-$2.39

52-Week Range: $1.39-$5.42

Volume: 760,000

Three-Month Average Volume: 163,752

Shares of TSON are soaring higher today after the company announced that Palmetto GBA has removed its non-coverage policy for AxiaLIF effective Jan. 1, 2012.

>>Stocks Rising on Unusual Volume

From a technical standpoint, TSON is gapping higher back above its 50-day moving average of $1.95 on monster volume. What's interesting about this move is that the stock hit some stiff resistance once it got close to its gap down day's high price from October.

I would not look to get long TSON again until the stock moves back above that gap down day high of just over $2.60 on high volume. Traders should look for volume that's near or above 163,752 shares on any future move over $2.60 to trigger the next long biased trading opportunity.
