52-Week Range: $0.62-$2.77

Volume: 2.5 million

Three-Month Average Volume: 79,554

>>5 Oversold Stocks Ready to Bounce

From a technical perspective, DARA is skyrocketing here with monster volume. This move has pushed DARA into breakout territory, since the stock has moved above some near-term overhead resistance levels at 84 to 85 cents per share. At last check, DARA has hit an intraday high of 98 cents and volume is well above its three-month average action of 79,554 shares.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in DARA once it triggers its next major breakout. That breakout will hit once DARA clears 98 cents and its 200-day moving average of $1.10 with high volume. Look for a sustained move or close above those levels with volume that's near or above 79,554 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then DARA will have a great chance of re-testing or possibly taking out its next major overhead resistance level at $1.40.
