Select Comfort ( SCSS) is a bed manufacturer and retailer. Select Comfort designs, manufactures, markets and distributes the Sleep Number bed and other sleep-related products. This stock is trading up 2.5% at $31.56 in recent trading.

Today's Volume: 1.8 million

Average Volume: 1.2 million

Volume % Change: 97%

From a technical perspective, SCSS is starting to move back above its 50-day moving average of $31.34 today with heavy volume. This move here follows a two-day high-volume selloff in the stock from $35.60 to back below its 50-day.

Traders should now consider long-biased trades in SCSS if it can manage to close back above its 50-day and near its daily high of $31.81. If we get that strong close today, look for SCSS to hit $33 or higher in the near-term. I would simply avoid long trades in SCSS if it closes below its 50-day and takes out today's low of $29.30 with high volume.
