>>5 Stocks With Big Insider Buying

From a technical perspective, ORIG is trending higher here after this stock found some buying interest right near its 200-day moving average of $15.09. This high-volume move is quickly pushing ORIG within range of triggering a near-term breakout trade. That trade will hit once ORIG clears some near-term overhead resistance at $16.52 with heavy volume.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in ORIG once it sustains a move or close above $16.52 with volume that's near or above 160.678 shares. If we get that action soon, then ORIG will have a great chance of re-testing and possibly taking out its next major overhead resistance levels at $17.43 to $18.26.
