DELAFIELD, Wis. ( Stockpickr) -- Trading stocks that trigger major breakouts can lead to massive profits. Once a stock trends to a new high, or takes out a prior overhead resistance point, then it's free to find new buyers and momentum players that can ultimately push the stock significantly higher.>>5 Big Trades for a Market Top One example of a successful breakout trade I flagged recently was electronic control devices maker Taser International ( TASR), which I featured in Aug. 15's " 5 Stocks Under $10 Set to Soar" at around $9.75 a share. I mentioned in that piece that shares of TASR had just broken back above its 50-day moving average with strong upside volume. This stock had also just started to move above some near-term overhead resistance levels at $9.05 to $9.30 with strong volume. That action was quickly pushing shares of TASR within range of breaking out above some key overhead resistance levels at $9.80 to its 52-week high at $9.87 a share. Guess what happened? Shares of TASR didn't wait long to trigger that move since the stock entered new 52-week-high territory the following trading session. This stock has done nothing but continue to uptrend higher since entering breakout territory, with shares tagging a recent high of $12.17 a share. That represents a quick gain of 25% in just a few weeks for anyone who bought the breakout on TASR. I still believe this stock has tremendous upside going forward, but shares could be due for a breather after that big run in August. >>5 Stocks Under $10 Set to Soar Breakout candidates are something that I tweet about on a daily basis. I frequently tweet out high-probability setups, breakout plays and stocks that are acting technically bullish. These are the stocks that often go on to make monster moves to the upside. What's great about breakout trading is that you focus on trend, price and volume. You don't have to concern yourself with anything else. The charts do all the talking. Trading breakouts is not a new game on Wall Street. This strategy has been mastered by legendary traders such as William O'Neal, Stan Weinstein and Nicolas Darvas. These pros know that once a stock starts to break out above past resistance levels, and hold above those breakout prices, then it can easily trend significantly higher. >>3 Huge Stocks to Trade (or Not) With that in mind, here's a look at five stocks that are setting up to break out and trade higher from current levels.

Dish NetworkMEDIA ID="155654" FILENAME="155654.jpg" ALIGN="center" HEIGHT="400" WIDTH="600" TARGET="no-mobile" TITLE="" DESCRIPTION=""/>Another cable service provider that's starting to push within range of triggering a big breakout trade is Dish Network ( DISH), which provides a direct broadcast satellite subscription television service in the U.S. This stock is off to a hot start in 2013, with shares up sharply by 30%. >>5 Stocks Insiders Love Right Now If you look at the chart for DISH Network, you'll notice that this stock has been trending sideways for the last two months, with shares moving between $41 on the downside and $46.89 on the upside. Shares of DISH are now starting to spike higher right off its 50-day moving average of $43.91 a share. That move is quickly pushing shares of DISH within range of triggering a breakout trade above the upper-end of its sideways trading chart pattern. Traders should now look for long-biased trades in DISH if it manages to break out above some near-term overhead resistance levels at $46 to its 52-week high at $46.89 a share with high volume. Look for a sustained move or close above those levels with volume that hits near or above its three-month average action of 2.61 million shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then DISH will set up to enter new 52-week high territory, which is bullish technical price action. Some possible upside targets off that move are $50 to $60 a share, or even $65 a share. Traders can look to buy DISH off any weakness to anticipate that breakout and simply use a stop that sits right below its 50-day at $43.91 a share, or below some more key near-term support at $42.85 a share. One can also buy DISH off strength once it takes out that breakout level with volume and then simply use a stop that sits a comfortable percentage from your entry point.
