From a technical perspective, DV is soaring here with above-average volume, and it's moved into breakout territory since it's taken out some near-term overhead resistance at $23.54.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in DV as long as it's trending above $23.54 with strong upside volume flows. I would consider any upside volume day that registers near or above its three-month average action of 1.7 million shares as bullish. If DV can maintain that trend, then look for this stock to continue to fill is previous gap from July that started at around $27.
