Today's Volume: 189,000

Average Volume: 88,291

Volume % Change: 186%

Shares of GUID are soaring today after the company beat Wall Street earnings estimates by 3 cents and raised its 2012 EPS guidance.

From a technical perspective, GUID is gapping up sharply here with above average volume. This move has pushed GUID into breakout territory, since the stock has cleared some overhead resistance levels at $9.97 to $10.20.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in GUID as long as its trending above today's low of $10.28 with strong upside volume flows. I would consider any upside volume day that registers near or above 88,291 shares as bullish. If we continue to see that trend, then GUID will have a great chance to re-test and possibly take out it next major overhead resistance levels at $11.56 to $11.87.
