Volume % Change: 293% >>4 Oil & Gas Stocks Under $10 to Watch From a technical perspective, GDP spiked sharply higher here with heavy upside volume. This stock has been uptrending strong for the last month and change, with shares moving higher from its low of $11.16 to its intraday high of $15.40. During that move, shares of GDP have been consistently making higher lows and higher highs, which is bullish technical price action. That move is now starting to push shares of GDP within range of triggering a major breakout trade. That trade will hit if GDP manages to take out some near-term overhead resistance levels at $16 to its 52-week high at $16.18 with high volume. Traders should now look for long-biased trades in GDP as long as it's trending above some near-term support levels at $14 or $13.50, and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that's near or above 787,641 shares. If that breakout hits soon, then GDP will set up to enter new 52-week-high territory, which is bullish technical price action. Some possible upside targets off that breakout are $20 to $24.
