>>4 Stocks to Trade for Breakouts on Big Volume
From a technical perspective, AMPE jumped modestly higher here right above some near-term support at $6.40 with above-average volume. This move is quickly pushing shares of AMPE within range of triggering a major breakout trade. That trade will hit if AMPE manages to take out its 52-week high at $7.17 with high volume.
Traders should now look for long-biased trades in AMPE as long as it's trending above near-term support levels at $6.50 or above its 50-day at $5.98 and then once it sustains a move or close above its 52-week high at $7.17 with volume that hits near or above 346,711 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then AMPE will set up to enter new 52-week-high territory, which is bullish technical price action. Some possible upside targets off that breakout are its next major overhead resistance levels at $8 to $8.50, or even $9.30.
