There isn't a day that goes by on Wall Street when certain stocks trading for under $10 a share don't experience massive spikes higher. Traders savvy enough to follow the low-priced names and trade them with discipline and sod risk management are banking ridiculous coin on a regular basis.

Just take a look at some of the big movers to the upside in the under-$10 complex from Wednesday, including Sino-Global Shipping America (SINO) which soared by 178.1%; Recon Technology (RCON), which ripped higher by 83.8%; Voltari (VLTC), which soared by 65.1%; and Lucas Energy (LEI), which spiked by 55.3%. You don't even have to catch the entire move in lower-priced stocks such as these to make outsized returns when trading.

Low-priced stocks are something that I tweet about on a regular basis. These are also the exact type of stocks that I love to trade and alert in real-time. I frequently flag high-probability setups, breakout candidates and low-priced stocks that are acting technically bullish. I like to hunt for low-priced stocks that are showing bullish price and volume trends, since that increases the probability of those stocks heading higher. These setups often produce monster moves higher in very short time frames.

When I trade under-$10 stocks, I do it almost entirely based off of the charts and technical analysis. I also like to find under-$10 stocks with a catalyst, but that's secondary to the chart and volume patterns.

With that in mind, here's a look at several under-$10 stocks that look poised to potentially trade higher from current levels.

Aspen Aerogels

If you take a glance at the chart for Aspen Aerogels, you'll notice that this stock recently gapped-down sharply lower from around $6 a share to $3.60 a share with heavy downside volume flows. Following that move, shares of Aspen Aerogels have now formed a double bottom chart pattern, since the stock has found some buying interest at $3.61 to $3.67 a share. This stock has now started to rebound off those support levels, and it's quickly trending within range of triggering a big breakout trade above some key overhead resistance levels.

Market players should now look for long-biased trades in shares of Aspen Aerogels if it manages to break out above some near-term overhead resistance levels at $4.17 to $4.25 a share with high volume. Look for a sustained move or close above those levels with volume that registers near or above its three-month average action of 78,988 shares. If that breakout hits soon, then this stock will set up to re-fill some of its previous gap-down-day zone that started near $6 a share. Some possible upside targets if this stock gets into that gap with volume are its 200-day moving average of $4.73 a share or its 20-day moving average of $5.09 a share.

Traders can look to buy this stock off weakness to anticipate that breakout and simply use a stop that sits right around those recent double bottom support levels. One can also buy shares of Aspen Aerogels off strength once it starts to clear those breakout levels with volume and then simply use a stop that sits a comfortable percentage from your entry point.
