5 Stocks Setting Up to Break Out

Atossa Genetics

One stock that's starting to push within range of triggering a big breakout trade is Apple ( ATOS), which is involved in the prevention of breast cancer through the commercialization of diagnostic medical devices and laboratory developed tests that can detect precursors to breast cancer. This stock is off to a decent start in 2013, with shares up 24%.

If you take a look at the chart for Atossa Genetics, you'll notice that this stock has been starting to uptrend over the last month, with shares moving higher from its low of $4.22 to its recent high of $5.08 a share. During that uptrend, shares of ATOS have been making mostly higher lows and higher highs, which is bullish technical price action. That move has now pushed shares of ATOS within range of triggering a big breakout trade above a key downtrend line that dates back to May.

>>5 Big Trades for a September Bounce

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in ATOS if it manages to break out above some key overhead resistance levels at $5.08 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 volume of 74,575 shares. If that breakout hits soon, then ATOS will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at $5.60 to $6.23 a share. Any high-volume move above $6.23 will then put $7 to $7.50 into range for shares of ATOS.

Traders can look to buy ATOS off any weakness to anticipate that breakout and simply use a stop that sits right below some key near-term support levels at $4.42 or at $4.22 a share. One could also buy ATOS off strength once it takes out $5.08 a share with volume and then simply use a stop that sits a comfortable percentage from your entry point.
