4 More Stocks Leaping on Unusual Volume

Stocks in this article: NCQ AMRS BIOF ONTY

Amyris (AMRS)

This company is building renewable products by applying its industrial synthetic biology technology platform to provide alternatives to select petroleum-sourced products used in specialty chemical and transportation fuel markets worldwide. This stock is trading up 7.1% to $2.85 in recent trading.

Today's Range: $2.67-$2.89

52-Week Range: $1.57-$12.29

Volume: 79,000

Three-Month Average Volume: 333,182

From a technical perspective, AMRS is trending higher here back above its 50-day moving average at $2.77 with light volume. This move is quickly pushing AMRS within range of triggering a near-term breakout trade. That trade will hit once AMRS manages to clear some near-term overhead resistance at $3 with high volume.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in AMRS as long as it's trending above its 50-day at $2.77, and then once it sustains a move or close above $3 with volume that hits near or above 333,182 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then AMRS will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at $3.41 to $4.20.

BioFuel Energy (BIOF)

This company is engaged in the production and sale of ethanol and its co-products through its two ethanol production facilities located in Wood River, Nebraska and Fairmont, Minnesota. This stock is trading up 5.4% to $5 in recent trading.

Today's Range: $4.89-$5.66

52-Week Range: $2.07-$18.40

Volume: 508,000

Three-Month Average Volume: 403,753

From a technical perspective, BIOF is trending higher here right above some near-term support at $4.50 with above-average volume. This move is quickly pushing BIOF within range of triggering a near-term breakout trade. That trade will hit once BIOF takes out its 50-day moving average of $5.60 with high volume. At last check, BIOF has hit an intraday high of $5.66 and volume is well above its three-month average action of 403,753 shares.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in BIOF as long as it's trending above $5.24, and then once it sustains a move or close above $5.60 to $5.66 with volume that hits near or above 403,753 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then BIOF will set up to re-test or possibly take its next major overhead resistance levels at $6.55 to its 200-day at $6.77. Any high-volume move above $6.77 will then put $7 to $7.80 into focus for shares of BIOF.
