From a technical perspective, HTWR is bouncing modestly to the upside here right off its 200-day moving average of $81.37 with above-average volume. This move is coming off oversold levels, since HTWR's current relative strength index (RSI) reading is 37. This action is also pushing HTWR within range of triggering a near-term breakout trade. That trade will hit once HTWR manages to clear some near-term overhead resistance levels at $86 to $86.36 with high volume.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in HTWR as long as it's trending above its 200-day at $81.37, and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that hits near or above 121,938 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then look for HTWR to re-test or possibly take out its 50-day moving average of $89.74.
