>>5 Stocks Set to Soar on Bullish Earnings

Stocks that are making large moves like these are favorites among short-term traders because they can jump into these names and try to capture some of that massive volatility. Stocks that are making big-percentage moves either up or down are usually in play because their sector is becoming attractive or they have a major fundamental catalyst such as a recent earnings release. Sometimes stocks making big moves have been hit with an analyst upgrade or an analyst downgrade.

Regardless of the reason behind it, when a stock makes a large-percentage move, it is often just the start of a new major trend -- a trend that can lead to huge profits. If you time your trade correctly, combining technical indicators with fundamental trends, discipline and sound money management, you will be well on your way to investment success.

With that in mind, let's take a closer look at a several stocks under $10 that are making large moves to the upside.

LightIn TheBox (LITB), through its subsidiaries, operates as an online retailing company. This stock closed up 2.7% to $9.79 a share in Tuesday's trading session.

Tuesday's Range: $9.46-$9.79

52-Week Range: $6.18-$23.38

Tuesday's Volume: 148,000

Three-Month Average Volume: 545,832

From a technical perspective, LITB bounced modestly higher here right above some near-term support at $9 with lighter-than-average volume. This bounce is starting to push shares of LITB within range of triggering a big breakout trade. That trade will hit if LITB manages to take out some key overhead resistance levels at $9.97 to $10.79 and then $10.89 with high volume.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in LITB as long as it's trending above $9 or above its 50-day at $8.40 and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that hits near or above 545,832 shares. If that breakout hits soon, then LITB will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels $12 to $13.

Coffee Holding

Three-Month Average Volume: 61,955

From a technical perspective, JVA surged sharply higher here right off its 50-day moving average of $5.007 with above-average volume. This move briefly pushed shares of JVA into breakout territory, after the stock flirted with some near-term overhead resistance at $5.46. Shares of JVA tagged an intraday high of $5.50 before closing just below that level at $5.45. Market players should now look for a continuation move higher in the short-term if JVA can manage to take out Tuesday's high of $5.50 with strong volume.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in JVA as long as it's trending above Tuesday's low of $5.01 and then once it sustains a move or close above $5.50 with volume that hits near or above 61,955 shares. If we get that move soon, then JVA will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at $5.85 to its 200-day moving average of $5.93.

That trade will hit if FLWS manages to take out Tuesday's high of $5.32 to its 200-day at $5.64 and then once it clears some past overhead resistance at $5.75 with high volume.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in FLWS as long as it's trending above $5 or above $4.80 and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that hits near or above 208,510 shares.
