From a technical perspective, KIOR is ripping higher today on above average volume. This move is quickly pushing the stock within range of triggering a big breakout trade. That breakout will hit once KIOR can takes out some near-term overhead resistance at $13.19 to $13.50 with volume.

Watch for a sustained high-volume move and close above those levels to signal that KIOR wants to trend much higher. If we get that action soon, then traders should continue to look for long biased trades since there will be little overhead resistance left until $17 to $18.40.
