Today's Range: $6.85-$7.2452-Week Range: $5.28-$29.29 Volume: 13.4 million Three-Month Average Volume: 20.4 million >>5 Stocks Under $10 Set to Soar From a technical perspective, ANR is trending higher here back above its 50-day at $6.80 with lighter volume. This move has also started to push ANR into breakout territory, since the stock has started to trend above some near-term overhead resistance levels at $7.03 to $7.13. Traders should now look for long-biased trades in ANR as long as it's trending above its 50-day and those breakout levels with strong upside volume flows. I would consider any upside volume day that registers near or above 20.4 million shares as bullish. If ANR can maintain that trend, then this stock has a great chance of re-testing or possibly taking out its next major overhead resistance levels at $9.05 to $9.74.
