DELAFIELD, Wis. (Stockpickr) -- At Stockpickr, we track daily portfolios of stocks that are the biggest percentage gainers and the biggest percentage losers.

Stocks that are making large moves like these are favorites among short-term traders because they can jump into these names and try to capture some of that massive volatility. Stocks that are making big-percentage moves either up or down are usually in play because their sector is becoming attractive or they have a major fundamental catalyst such as a recent earnings release. Sometimes stocks making big moves have been hit with an analyst upgrade or an analyst downgrade.

Regardless of the reason behind it, when a stock makes a large-percentage move, it is often just the start of a new major trend -- a trend that can lead to huge profits. If you time your trade correctly, combining technical indicators with fundamental trends, discipline and sound money management, you will be well on your way to investment success.

With that in mind, let's take a closer look at a several stocks under $10 that are making large moves to the upside.

Anthera Pharmaceuticals

52-Week Range: $1.53-$4.08
Tuesday's Volume: 164,000
Three-Month Average Volume: 179,622

From a technical perspective, ANTH ripped sharply higher here right above some near-term support at $1.68 with decent upside volume flows. This stock has been downtrending badly over the last three months, with shares moving lower from its high of $3.55 to its new 52-week low of $1.53. During that downtrend, shares of ANTH have been consistently making lower highs and lower lows, which is bearish technical price action. That said, shares of ANTH have now started to rebound off that $1.53 low and it's quickly moving within range of triggering a near-term breakout trade. That trade will hit if ANTH manages to take out some key near-term overhead resistance at $1.94 with high volume.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in ANTH as long as it's trending above Tuesday's intraday low of $1.77 and then once it sustains a move or close above that breakout level with volume that hits near or above 179,622 shares.
