4 Stocks Under $10 Making Big Moves

Active Network

Active Network (ACTV) provides organization-based cloud computing applications services to business customers in North America, Europe and internationally. This stock is trading up 1% to $5.72 in recent trading.

Today's Range: $5.61-$5.87

52-Week Range: $4.60-$17.74

Volume: 161,000

Three-Month Average Volume: 746,677

From a technical perspective, ACTV is bouncing modestly higher here right above its 50-day moving average of $5.25 with lighter-than-average volume. This stock has been trading in a consolidation pattern for the last month, with shares moving between $5.22 on the downside and $6.30 on the upside. This move today is quickly pushing shares of ACTV within range of triggering a major breakout trade. That trade will hit if ACTV manages to take out some near-term overhead resistance levels at $5.91 to $6.30 and then once it takes out its gap down day high at around $6.50 with high volume.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in ACTV as long as it's trending above its 50-day at $5.25, and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that hits near or above 746,677 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then ACTV will set up to re-fill some of its previous gap down zone from last November that started at $9.50.

52-Week Range: $2.51-$12.41

Volume: 748,000

Three-Month Average Volume: 627,145

From a technical perspective, CECO is ripping higher here right above its 50-day moving average of $3.32 with above-average volume. This stock has been trading in a consolidation pattern for the last month, with shares moving between $3.25 on the downside and $3.84 on the upside. Shares of CECO are now quickly moving within range of triggering a breakout trade above the upper-end of its recent consolidation pattern. That trade will hit if CECO manages to take out some near-term overhead resistance levels at $3.84 to $3.95 with high volume.
