6 Under-$10 Stocks Moving Higher

Durect (DRRX)

This is a specialty pharmaceutical company. It develops pharmaceutical products based on its proprietary drug delivery technology platforms. This stock closed up 7.1% to $1.20 in Tuesday's trading session.

Tuesday's Range: $1.12-$1.23

52-Week Range: $0.61-$1.85

Tuesday's Volume: 959,000

Three-Month Average Volume: 660,808

From a technical perspective, DRRX spiked sharply higher here right off its 200-day moving average of $1.11 and back above its 50-day moving average of $1.15 with strong upside volume. This move also pushed shares of DRRX into breakout territory, since the stock took out some near-term overhead resistance at $1.19. Shares of DRRX are now starting to trend within range of triggering a big breakout trade above some stiff overhead resistance. That trade will hit if DRRX manages to take out Tuesday's intraday high of $1.23 and then once it clears some key overhead resistance at $1.34 with high volume.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in DRRX as long as it's trending above its 200-day at $1.11 or above more near-term support at $1.07, and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that hits near or above 660,808 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then DRRX will set up to re-fill some of its previous gap down zone from May that started near $1.70.
