3 Stocks Under $10 Making Big Moves

DELAFIELD, Wis. (Stockpickr) -- As part of a daily routine as an active trader or investor, one should always be tracking the stocks in the market that are making the biggest percentage gains and the biggest percentage losses.

Stocks that are making large moves to the upside 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 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.

Thursday's Volume: 653,000
Three-Month Average Volume: 884,550

From a technical perspective, SOL is ripping higher here right above some near-term support at $1.43 with decent upside volume flows. This jump higher on Thursday is now starting to push shares of SOL within range of triggering a major breakout trade above some key near-term overhead resistance levels. That trade will hit if SOL manages to take out some key near-term overhead resistance levels at $1.62 to $1.65 a share and then above some past resistance at $1.69 with high volume.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in SOL as long as it's trending above Thursday's intraday low of $1.50 or above more near-term support at $1.43 and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that registers near or above 884,550 shares. If that breakout gets going soon, then SOL will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at $2 to its 200-day moving average of $2.11.
