Staples shares are trading on heavy volume today, having risen 0.8% to $13.48. Today's volume of 12.9 million shares tops the average 30-day volume of 10.7 million shares. Unusually high volume can signify a potential turning point or validate a breakout.

In the past 52 weeks, Staples share prices have been bracketed by a low of $10.57 and a high of $16.93 and are now at $13.48, 28% above that low price. Over the last five market days, the 200-day moving average (MA) has gone down 0.3% while the 50-day MA has advanced 1.0%.

Staples, Inc. retails office supplies, furniture, and technology. The Company's customers include consumers and businesses in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, and Germany.
