Three-Month Average Volume: 5.55 million >>5 Stocks Set to Soar on Bullish Earnings From a technical perspective, STP is trending higher here back above its 200-day moving average of $1.01 with lighter-than-average volume. This stock has been trending sideways for the last month, with shares moving between 86 cents on the downside and $1.28 on the upside. Shares of STP continue to trend within range of triggering a breakout trade above the upper end of its recent sideways chart pattern. That breakout will hit if STP manages to take out some near-term overhead resistance levels at $1.07 to $1.18 and then once it clears more resistance at $1.28 with high volume. Traders should now look for long-biased trades in STP as long as it's trending above its 200-day at $1.01 or above some more near-term support at 93 cents and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that hits near or above 5.55 million shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then STP will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at $1.70 to $1.78. Any high-volume move above those levels will then put $2 into range for shares of STP.
