Builders FirstSource ( BLDR) is a supplier and manufacturer of structural and related building products for residential new construction. This stock is trading up 10.8% to $3.90 in recent trading.

Today's Range: $3.52-$3.92

52-Week Range: $1.01-$4.55

Volume: 175,000

Three-Month Average Volume: 339,284

From a technical perspective, BLDR is bouncing strong today right near its 50-day moving average of $3.62 with light volume. This bounce is basically coming after BLDR found some buying interest at $3.50 to $3.42 recently.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades if BLDR can manage to trigger a major near-term breakout trade. That trade will hit once BLDR takes out some overhead resistance at $4.35 to $4.55 with volume. Look for a sustained move or close above those levels that comes with volume that's near or above 339,284 shares. If we get that action soon, look for BLDR to trend towards $5 to $5.30 in the near future.
