5 Stocks Ready to Break Out

Noodles

Another stock that's starting to move within range of triggering a near-term breakout trade is Noodles (NDLS), which develops and operates fast casual restaurants that serves noodle and pasta dishes, soups, salads and sandwiches. This stock is off to a decent start so far in 2013, with shares up 12.2%.

If you look at the chart for Noodles, you'll notice that this stock recently pulled back from $49.15 to $38.90 a share. During that pullback, shares of NDLS were marking lower highs and lower lows, which is bearish technical price action. That said, shares of NDLS have now started to stabilize below $39 a share and the stock is starting to form a near-term uptrend. That uptrend is quickly pushing NDLS within range of triggering a near-term breakout trade.

>>5 Stocks With Big Insider Buying

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in NDLS if it manages to break out above some near-term overhead resistance at $42.73 a share with high volume. Look for a sustained move or close above that level with volume that hits near or above its three-month average action of 923,754 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then NDLS will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at $45 to $47 a share. Any high-volume move above those levels will then give NDLS a chance to take out its all-time high of $51.97 a share.

Traders can look to buy NDLS off any weakness to anticipate that breakout and simply use a stop that sits right below some key near-term support levels at $39.85 or $38.90 a share. One can also buy NDLS off strength once it takes out $42.73 with volume and then simply use a stop that sits a comfortable percentage from your entry point.
