>>5 Stocks Under $10 Set to Soar

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.

TTM Technologies

TTM Technologies (TTMI), together with its subsidiaries, provides printed circuit board products and backplane assemblies worldwide. This stock closed up 1.4% to $8.43 a share in Thursday's trading session.

Thursday's Range: $8.16-$8.44

52-Week Range: $6.53-$10.91

Thursday's Volume: 1.10 million

Three-Month Average Volume: 571,305

From a technical perspective, TTMI spiked modestly higher here right above its double bottom price levels at $7.97 to $7.96 with strong upside volume. This move is quickly pushing shares of TTMI within range of triggering a major breakout trade. That trade will hit if TTMI manages to take out some near-term overhead resistance levels at $8.45 to $8.75 and then once it clears its 200-day moving average at $8.85 with high volume.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in TTMI as long as it's trending above those double bottom support levels at $7.97 to $7.96 and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that hits near or above 571,305 shares. If that breakout hits soon, then TTMI will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at $9.77 to $9.82. Any high-volume move above those levels will then give TTMI a chance to tag $10.50 to its 52-week high at $10.91.

From a technical perspective, RSYS ripped sharply higher here right above some near-term support at $2.57 and above its 50-day at $2.41 with heavy upside volume. This move is quickly pushing shares of RSYS within range of triggering a near-term breakout trade. That trade will hit if RSYS manages to take out Thursday's high of $2.79 to some more near-term overhead resistance at $2.96 with high volume.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in RSYS as long as it's trending its 50-day at $2.41 and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that hits near or above 159,379 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then RSYS will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels $3.30 to $3.50, or even its 200-day moving average of $3.72.

If that breakout triggers soon, then WAVX will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at its 200-day moving average of $1.40 to $1.45. Any high-volume move above those levels will then give WAVX a chance to tag $1.60 to $1.70.
