Three-Month Average Volume: 573,013

>>Stocks Rising on Unusual Volume

From a technical perspective, HW is following through today after the stock recently saw some buying interest near its 50-day moving average of $3.71. This move has now pushed HW into breakout territory since the stock is moving above some near-term overhead resistance at $4.09 with decent volume.

Traders should continue to look for long-biased trades as long as HW is trending above $4.09 with strong upside volume flows. The next major breakout for HW will trigger once it takes out $4.54 with high-volume. I would consider upside volume that's near or well above 573,013 as bullish action. A possibly target if $4.54 is taken out with volume is the next major resistance level at $5.50.
