INXN is up 4.6 percent this morning at $22.17. The European data center services company is off the highs of the morning and now back below Monday's open. Shares were fighting to close above resistance at $23 for most of October after hitting $23.71 intraday early in the month. That was almost double the 52-week low from December.
