DELAFIELD, Wis. (Stockpickr) -- There isn't a day that goes by on Wall Street when certain stocks trading for under $10 a share don't experience massive spikes higher. Traders savvy enough to follow the low-priced names and trade them with discipline and sound risk management are banking ridiculous coin on a regular basis.

Just take a look at some of the big movers in the under-$10 complex from Friday, including Emerson Radio (MSN), which is exploding higher by 28%; MGT Capital Investments (MGT), which is surging higher by 20%; Digital Ally (DGLY), which is ripping higher by 19%; and Heat Biologics (HTBX), which is jumping to the upside by 16.7%. You don't even have to catch the entire move in lower-priced stocks such as these to make outsized returns when trading.

One example of an under-$10 stock I flagged recently that exploded to the upside was China Finance Online (JRJC), which I featured in July 24's "5 Stocks Under $10 Set to Soar" at around $4.27 per share. I mentioned in that piece that shares of China Finance Online were just starting to flirt with a breakout trade, since the stock was starting to challenge some near-term overhead resistance at $4.28 a share. That action was starting to push shares of JRJC within range of triggering a much bigger breakout trade above some key near-term overhead resistance levels

Guess what happened? Shares of China Finance Online finally triggered that breakout early this week with monster upside volume flows. Volume on Monday registered 11.87 million shares and on Tuesday it hit 32.76 million shares, which is well above its three-month average volume of 1.84 million shares. Shares of JRJC have exploded to the upside since clearing some key near-term overhead resistance levels at $ 4.75 to $5.10 a share with the stock tagging an intraday high on Thursday at $11.88 a share. That represents a monster gain of well over 100% for anyone who bought the stock in anticipation of that breakout following my original article.

Low-priced stocks are something that I tweet about on a regular basis. I frequently flag high-probability setups, breakout candidates and low-priced stocks that are acting technically bullish. I like to hunt for low-priced stocks that are showing bullish price and volume trends, since that increases the probability of those stocks heading higher. These setups often produce monster moves higher in very short time frames.

When I trade under-$10 names, I do it almost entirely based off of the charts and technical analysis. I also like to find under-$10 names with a catalyst, but that's secondary to the chart and volume patterns.

With that in mind, here's a look at several under-$10 stocks that look poised to potentially trade higher from current levels.

Nova Lifestyle


One under-$10 consumer goods player that's starting to trend within range of triggering a big breakout trade is Nova Lifestyle (NVFY), which designs, manufactures, markets and sells residential furniture for middle and upper middle-income consumers worldwide. This stock has been hit hard by the bears over the last six months, with shares down sharply by 38%.

If you take a glance at the chart for Nova Lifestyle, you'll notice that this stock has been trending sideways and consolidating for the last two months, with shares moving between $4.02 on the downside and $4.88 on the upside. Shares of NVFY have now started to trend back above its 50-day moving average of $4.34 a share and it's quickly moving within range of triggering a big breakout trade above the upper-end of its recent sideways trading chart pattern.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in NVFY if it manages to break out above some near-term overhead resistance levels at $4.43 to $4.55 a share and then once it clears more resistance at $4.69 to $4.88 a share with high volume. Look for a sustained move or close above those levels with volume that hits near or above its three-month average action of 79,155 shares. If that breakout gets set off soon, then NVFY will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels $5.20 to $6 a share.

Traders can look to buy NVFY off weakness to anticipate that breakout and simply use a stop that sits right around some key near-term support levels at $4.15 to $4.02 a share. One can also buy NVFY off strength once it starts to clear those breakout levels with volume and then simply use a stop that sits a comfortable percentage from your entry point.

This stock has been hammered by the sellers over the last three months, with shares down sharply by 53%.

If you take a glance at the chart for Provectus Biopharmaceuticals, you'll see that this stock has formed a major bottoming chart pattern over the last two months and change, with shares finding buying interest whenever it pulls back close to 80 cents per share. This stock is now starting to spike higher off those support levels and it's flirting with its 50-day moving average at 94 cents per share. That move is quickly pushing shares of PVCT within range of triggering major breakout trade above some key near-term overhead resistance levels.

Look for a sustained move or close above those levels with volume that hits near or above its three-month average volume of 1.43 million shares. If that breakout materializes soon, then PVCT will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance level at $1.45 a share. Any high-volume move above $1.45 will then give PVCT a chance to re-fill some of its previous gap-down-day zone from May that started at $2 a share.

Traders can look to buy PVCT off weakness to anticipate that breakout and simply use a stop that sits right below some key near-term support at 82 cents per share.
