One under-$10 name that's starting to set up for a big breakout trade is Trius Therapeutics (TSRX), a biopharmaceutical company focused on the discovery, development and commercialization of antibiotics for life threatening infections. This stock is off to a weak start in 2012, with shares off by around 25%.
If you take a look at the chart for Trius Therapeutics, you'll notice that this stock has been downtrending since last December, from a high of $8 to a recent low of $4.71 a share. During that downtrend, this stock consistently made lower highs and lower lows, which is bearish price action. That said, now the stock has started to make higher lows for the last month, and it's moving within range of triggering a near-term breakout.
