Intuit ( INTU) is a provider of business and financial management solutions for small and medium-sized businesses, consumers, accounting professionals and financial institutions. This stock is trading up 1.1% at $55.04 in recent trading.

Today's Volume: 3 million

Average Volume: 2.4 million

Volume % Change: 121%

From a technical perspective, INTU is bouncing right off its 200-day moving average of $53.30 here with above average volume. At last check, INTU has hit an intraday high of $56.90 but has since then pulled back towards its current price of around $55.

Traders should now only consider long-biased trades in INTU if it can manage to trigger a near-term breakout trade. That trade will hit once INTU takes out its 50-day moving average of $58.40, and then some near-term overhead resistance at $59 with high-volume. Look for a sustained move or close above those levels with volume that's near or above 2,355,820 shares. If we get that action soon, then INTU could fill a previous gap back towards $62.

On the flipside, I would look for short-biased trades if INTU moves back below its 200-day with high-volume.
