>>5 Stocks Under $10 Poised for Breakouts

From a technical perspective, NPSP is soaring here back above its 50-day moving average of $7.18 with above average volume. This move is now setting NPSP up for a much larger trend higher.

Traders should continue to look for long-biased trades as long as NPSP is trending above its 50-day with strong upside volume flows. I would consider any upside volume day that registers near or above 672,986 shares as bullish. If we continue to see that trend, then look for NPSP to re-test $7.60 and then possibly fill a previous gap back towards $8 to $8.35. This stock has some major overhead resistance at $8.35 to $8.48, so if it were to take those levels out with volume it would be very bullish in the near-term.

On the flipside, I would avoid this stock or look for short-biased trades if it fails to get into that gap, or if it drops back below its 50-day with heavy volume.
