>>3 Health Care Stocks Under $10 Making Big Moves

From a technical perspective, ALR is bouncing hard here right off some near-term support at $19.15 with massive upside volume. This move is quickly pushing ALR within range of triggering a major breakout trade. That trade will hit once ALR takes out its 200-day moving average of $21.53, and then once it clears some more past resistance at $22.68 with high volume.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in ALR as long as it's trending above $19.15, and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that hits near or above 558,288 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then look for ALR to possibly re-test or take out its next major overhead resistance level at $26.50.
