1.Bull Popper- a gizzard that has spiked upward with 3-10 million shares traded, and now is in pullback phase...The gizzard trade calculates how far the stock will pull back before rebounding...The bounce is the popper.....
2.Overhead-Large volume areas of the past that create resistance to any sustained upmove..
