>>5 Big Stocks to Trade for Gains
Traders watch for a move over $6.78 on volume that's well above 56,969 shares. If we get that action soon, then this stock should set up to re-test its 200-day moving average of $8.11, or possibly trend much higher towards $9 in the coming days or weeks.

Today's Range: $4.63-$4.94

Three-Month Average Volume: 332,288
From a technical standpoint, IPSU is starting to find some buying support at $4.36 to $4.54, following the stock's huge drop from its August high of $25.61. The next buy point on this stock will trigger once it moves back above $5.25 to $5.50 on heavy volume. Look for volume on any move over $5.25 to $5.50 that tracks in close to or above its three-month average volume of 332,288.
If we get that action, this stock should easily test its 50-day moving average of $6.06 in the near future. Volume so far today is very weak, so look for that to improve dramatically if you're bullish on IPSU.
