The Tech Trader's 3 Stocks On The Move

Harry Boxer - TheTechTrader.com

Three stocks that had been digesting recent gains now appear to be on the rise again.

ArQule, Inc. (NASDAQ: ARQL) gained 42 cents to $7.17 on 2.6 million shares Tuesday. The move, on more than 1/2 times its average volume, came on no news from the biopharmaceutical company. The stock broke out of a month-long wedge pattern last week and backed off before Tuesday's move. It edged above resistance at the July high of $7.21 intraday.  A follow-through could get it to $8.50 next.

Qudian Inc. (NYSE: QD) jumped 95 cents to $7.09 on 10.9 million shares Tuesday, or 1 1/2 times its average volume. The move followed Monday's earning release by the China-based provider of online small consumer credit products. The stock had been in a down-channel off its May 2 high at $8.51, but Tuesday's move broke it out above the declining tops line. Watch for a test of that $8.51 high next.

Roku, Inc. (NASDAQ: ROKU) popped $4.30 to $87.63 on 10.9 million shares Tuesday on no news from the streaming TV company. The stock gapped up by about a third on May 9 on strong earnings, and has been flagging since. Tuesday's move edged the stock above the top of the pennant, as the stock had its highest close ever. The long-term rising channel points to a target in the high-$90's.
