>>5 Stocks Poised for Big Breakouts
From a technical perspective, KERX is moving higher here right near its 50-day moving average of $1.95 with above average volume. This move is quickly pushing KERX within range of triggering a major breakout trade. That trade will hit once KERX takes out some near-term overhead resistance levels at $2.22 to $2.34, and then its 200-day moving average of $2.44 with high volume.
Traders should now look for long-biased trades in KERX once it sustains a move or close above those levels with volume that's near or above 1,154,840 share. If that breakout triggers soon, then KERX will have a great chance of getting into a previous gap down zone that started above $5.
