>>5 Huge Trades for a Volatile 2013

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 today.

Inteliquent (IQNT)

This company is a full-scale network solutions provider, offering intelligent networking to solve challenging interconnection and interoperability issues on a global scale. This stock is trading up 7.6% to $2.96 in recent trading.

Today’s Range: $2.84-$3.06

52-Week Range: $2.10-$14.15

Volume: 585,000

Three-Month Average Volume: 745,328

From a technical perspective, IQNT is just starting to push back above its 50-day moving average of $2.93 here with decent volume. This stock has been uptrending strongly for the last month and change, with shares moving higher from its low of $2.10 to its recent high of $3.25. During that move, shares of IQNT have been consistently making higher lows and higher highs, which is bullish technical price action. That move is quickly pushing the stock within range of triggering a major breakout trade. That trade will hit if IQNT manages to clear its 50-day at $2.93 and some more near-term overhead resistance at $3.25 with high volume.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in IQNT as long as it’s trending above some near-term support at $2.62, and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that hits near or above 745,328 shares. If that breakout hits soon, then IQNT will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels $4 to $5.

TransGlobe Energy (TGA)

This company is mainly engaged in the exploration for, and the development and production of, oil and gas in Egypt and Yemen. This stock is trading up 5.8% to $9.55 in recent trading.

Today’s Range: $9.09-$9.57

52-Week Range: $7.80-$14.46

Volume: 610,000

Three-Month Average Volume: 101,780

From a technical perspective, TGA is bouncing here off some near-term support at $9 with monster upside volume. This stock has been downtrending badly for the last two months, with shares dropping from its high of $12.58 to its recent low of $8.89. During that move, shares of TGA have been consistently making lower highs and lower lows, which is bearish technical price action. That said, TGA is starting to rebound here with heavy volume, which could mean the stock is ready to reverse its bearish trend.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in TGA as long as it’s trending above $8.89 with strong upside volume flows. I would consider any upside volume day that registers near or above 101,780 shares as bullish. If TGA can maintain that trend, then this stock could easily bounce back towards its next significant overhead resistance levels at $9.81 to $10.23. Any high-volume move above those levels could then send TGA back above its 50-day at $10.31 and its 200-day at $10.64.

VisionChina Media (VISN)

This company operates out-of-home advertising network using real-time mobile digital television broadcasts to deliver content and advertising on mass transportation systems in China. The stock is trading up 3% to $4.40 in recent trading.

Today’s Range: $4.06-$4.49

52-Week Range: $3.00-$37.20

Volume: 24,000

Three-Month Average Volume: 22,192

From a technical perspective, VISN is bouncing higher here right off its 50-day moving average of $4.07 with above-average volume. This move is quickly pushing shares of VISN within range of triggering a near-term breakout trade. That trade will hit if VISN manages to take out some near-term overhead resistance levels at $4.50 to $4.80 and then $4.92 to $5 with high volume.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in VISN as long as it’s trending above some near-term support at $4, and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that hits near or above 22,192 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then VISN will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at $5.54 to $6.20. Any high-volume move above $6.20 will then put $6.96 into range for shares of VISN.

Quality Distribution (QLTY)

This company operates a chemical bulk tank truck network in North America. This stock is trading up 3.5% to $7 in recent trading.

Today’s Range: $6.75-$7.24

52-Week Range: $4.91-$14.61

Volume: 255,000

Three-Month Average Volume: 285,254

From a technical perspective, QLTY is ripping higher here right above its 50-day moving average of $6.41 with decent upside volume. This stock has been uptrending strongly for the last two months, with shares moving higher from its low of $4.91 to its recent high of $7.24. During that move, shares of QLTY have been mostly making higher low and higher highs, which is bullish technical price action. That move has now started to push QLTY into its previous gap down zone from last November that started at $8.50.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in QLTY as long as it’s trending above its 50-day at $6.41, and then once it sustains a move or close $6.97 to $7.24 with volume that hits near or above 285,254 shares.
