WINDERMERE, Fla. ( Stockpickr) -- Trading stocks that trigger major breakouts can lead to massive profits. Once a stock trends to a new high or takes out a prior overhead resistance point, then it's free to find new buyers and momentum players that can ultimately push the stock significantly higher.An example of a recent successful breakout trade is computer storage device player OCZ Technology Group (OCZ) which I featured in Jan. 24's " 4 Tech Stocks Under $10 Spiking Higher." I mentioned in that piece that shares of OCZ were ripping higher right above some near-term support at $1.83 a share with heavy upside volume. That move was quickly pushing shares of OCZ within range of triggering a major breakout trade if the stock could manage to take out some key overhead resistance levels at $2.19 to $2.27 a share with high volume.
