>>3 Stocks Spiking on Big Volume

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.

From a technical perspective, TSEM spiked higher here right above some near-term support at $5.44 and above its 200-day at $5.26 with strong upside volume. This move is quickly pushing shares of TSEM within range of triggering a major breakout trade. That trade will hit if TSEM manages to take out Tuesday's high of $5.99 to some more key overhead resistance at $6.11 with high volume.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in TSEM as long as it's trending above Thursday's low of $5.58 or above its 200-day at $5.26 and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that hits near or above 155,068 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then TSEM will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels $7.53 to its 52-week high at $8.67.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in XGTI as long as it's trending above Tuesday's low of $1.44 and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that hits near or above 154,546 shares.

If that breakout hits soon, then NTWK will set up to re-fill some of its previous gap-down-day zone from November that started just above $7.50.

This move pushed shares of RSYS into breakout territory, after the stock took out some near-term overhead resistance at $2.62.
