Today's Volume: 1.5 million Average Volume: 1.8 million Volume % Change: 50% >>5 Consumer Stocks Hedge Funds Love From a technical perspective, CL is moving modestly higher here with decent volume. This move has started to push CL within range of its 50-day moving average of $105.15. At last check, CL has hit an intraday high of $105.47 and volume is very close to eclipsing its three-month average action of 1.8 million shares. Traders should now look for long-biased traders in CL as long as it's trending close to or above its 50-day moving average of $105.15 with strong upside volume flows. I would consider any upside volume day that registers near or above 1,756,190 shares as bullish. If CL can hold a trend above its 50-day, then it will have a great chance of re-testing or taking out its next major overhead resistance levels at $108 to $109.84. On the flip side, I would avoid CL or look for short-biased trades if it fails to hold a trend above its 50-day, and then takes out some major near-term support at $102.50 with strong volume.
