Volume % Change: 131%

From a technical standpoint, IPGP is starting to flirt with a couple of major breakouts. That first breakout is a move above some near-term overhead resistance at $55.15, and that second breakout is above its 200-day moving average of 55.82.

If IPGP can sustain a high-volume move and close above those two breakout levels, then this stock has a great chance to re-test its October high of $58.16. Look for volume on a close above those levels that's near or well above 599,518 shares.
