The stock effectively broke out and grasped the attention of momentum traders, which could eventually push the stock to a different trading range.

Verizon Communications Inc. (NYSE:VZ) is an integrated telecommunications company that provides wire line voice and data services, wireless services, Internet services, and published directory information. The Company also provides network services for the federal government. Verizon is the owner of the largest wireless network, with more subscribers in the U.S. Verizon was founded in 1983 and is based in New York, New York.

The stock was trading in a well defined range with support at $40.51 and resistance at $43.77. Given that this range was broken, traders will be closely monitoring Verizon's price action to gather clues on the future direction.

From a technical perspective, it can be expected that previous resistance becomes support, as the new range gets defined. However, given that Verizon is still near the broken resistance level, traders will be focusing on the $43.77 level to see if the stock holds the breakout without rolling over.
