This move is quickly pushing VLTR within range of a breakout trade. That trade will hit once VLTR takes out its 50-day moving average of $31.90 with high-volume. >>Top 5 Tech Stocks in a Down Market Traders should now look for long-biased trades if VLTR can sustain a move or close over $31.90 with volume that's near or above 279,265 shares. If we get that action soon, look for VLTR to re-test its next near-term overhead resistance levels at $33.39 to its 52-week high of $34.87. On the flipside, I would look for short-biased trades if VLTR fails to take out its 50-day, and then moves back below some near-term support at $28.79 with heavy volume.
