From a technical perspective, RDN is skyrocketing here on above average volume. This move has pushed the stock into breakout territory since it's taken out some near-term overhead resistance at $2.53. The next major breakout trade will trigger once RDN takes out its 200-day moving average of $2.88 with volume.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades if RDN can sustain a move or close over $2.88 with volume that's near or above 4.98 million shares. If we get that action today or soon, then RDN can continue to uptrend back towards its 50-day moving average of $3.40 or possibly much higher.

>>5 Rocket Stocks Ready to Blast Off

From a technical perspective, TPLM is bouncing here off of some oversold levels, since this stock dropped in the last few months from a high of $8.26 to a low of $4.68. This bounce today is coming after TPLM recently registered a relative strength index reading that was below 30.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades if TPLM can manage to move back above its 50-day moving average at $5.94 and its 200-day moving average at $6.24 with high volume. Look for a sustained move or close back above those levels with volume that's near or above 518,387 shares. If we get that action, then TPLM has a good chance of re-testing its next significant overhead resistance levels at $6.89 to $7.60.

Today's Range: $5.43-$5.91

52-Week Range: $4.68-$17.66

Volume: 974,000

Three-Month Average Volume: 2.1 million

From a technical perspective, LEAP is surging sharply higher here after the stock recently gapped down big on heavy volume. This move is quickly pushing LEAP within range of triggering a breakout trade. That trade will hit once LEAP takes out some near-term overhead resistance at $5.91 to $6.43 with high volume.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades if LEAP can sustain a move or close above $5.91 to $6.43 with volume that's near or above 2.1 million shares. If we get that action soon, then LEAP can attempt to fill some of that gap back toward $8. At last check, LEAP has hit an intraday high of $5.92 and volume is well below its average action.

If LEAP fails to trigger that breakout, I would then avoid this stock if it moves back below $5.16 with heavy volume.

From a technical perspective, ROSG has been on fire lately, skyrocketing from $1.40 to today's high of $7.89 a share on massive volume. That move has now pushed ROSG right below its 200-day moving average of $8.26.

Traders should continue to look for long-biased trades if ROSG can manage to take outs its 200-day with high-volume. Look for a sustained move or close over $8.26 with volume that's near or above 276,887 shares. At last check, ROSG has hit $7.89 at the high of the day on volume that's well above its three-month average action.

At last check, ENOC had hit an intraday high of $6.66, but since then it's pulled back to its current price around $6.25.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades once ENOC takes out its 50-day moving average at $6.63 with high-volume. Look for a sustained move or close above $6.63 with volume that's near or above 351,676 shares. If we get that action soon, look for ENOC to make a big run at its next significant overhead resistance levels at $7.94 to $8.27, or possibly its 200-day moving average of $9.05.

Clearwire ( CLWR) is a provider of fourth-generation wireless broadband services. This stock is trading up 8.3% to $1.29 in recent trading.

Today's Range: $1.20-$1.31

52-Week Range: $1.00-$4.77

Volume: 18.2 million

Three-Month Average Volume: 16 million

From a technical perspective, CLWR is bouncing hard here off of oversold conditions. This stock has plunged in the last two months from a high of $2.48 to a low of $1.00. That low pushed CLWR into extremely oversold conditions since its relative strength index was hitting readings well below 30.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades if CLWR can trigger a near-term breakout trade above $1.38 to $1.57 with high-volume. Look for a sustained move or close above those levels on volume that's near or above 15,997,300 shares. If we get that action soon, then CLWR could easily hit its 50-day moving average of $1.80 or possibly much higher.

I would avoid any long trades in CLWR if it failed to trigger that move, and then dropped below some near-term support at $1.20 with high-volume.
