>>7 Stocks Soaring on Heavy Volume

From a technical perspective, PSTI is gapping up sharply here right off some near-term support at $3.51 with heavy volume. This move is quickly pushing PSTI within range of triggering a major breakout trade. That trade will trigger once PSTI takes out some key overhead resistance at $4.23 to $4.38 with high volume.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in PSTI as long as this stock is trending above $3.50, and then once it clears $4.23 to $4.38 with high volume. Look for a sustained move or close above those levels with volume that's near or above 531,278 shares. If that major breakout triggers soon, then PSTI has a chance to head well north of $5 in the near future.
