>>4 Chip Stocks Apple Fans Should Love

From a technical perspective, LDK is bouncing here off some near-term support and its 52-weeek low of $1.16 with decent volume. This move is quickly pushing LDK within range of triggering a near-term breakout trade. That trade will hit once LDK clears some near-term overhead resistance at $1.31, and then once it takes out its 50-day moving average at $1.45 with high volume.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in LDK as long as it's trending above $1.16, and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that's near or above 788,920 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then LDK will setup to re-test and possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at $1.62 to $1.70. Any high-volume move above those levels will then put $1.90 to $2.05 into range for LDK.
