MADISON, Wis. ( 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.One example of a successful breakout trade I flagged recently was global thermal processing systems provider Amtech Systems ( ASYS), which I featured in April 26's " 5 Stocks Poised for Big Breakouts" at around $3.80 a share. ASYS had just started to trend back above its 50-day and 200-day moving averages with above-average volume, which was quickly pushing shares within range of triggering a major breakout trade above some near-term overhead resistance levels at $3.93 to $4.08 a share.
