As part of your daily routine as an active trader or investor, it's important to track 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 who want to capture some of that massive volatility. Stocks that are making big-percentage moves 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.

From a technical perspective, Endologix ripped sharply higher on Tuesday right off its 20-day moving average of $9.44 a share with decent upside volume flows. This strong move to the upside on Tuesday is now quickly pushing shares of Endologix within range of triggering a major breakout trade above some key near-term overhead resistance levels. That trade will trigger if this stock manages to take out some near-term overhead resistance levels at $10.15 to $10.45 a share and then above its gap-down-day high from October $11 a share with high volume.

If that breakout triggers soon, then this stock will set up to re-fill some of its previous gap-down-day zone that started near $14 a share.

If that move gets underway soon, then this stock will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at 50 cents to around 60 cents per share. Any high-volume move above those levels will then give this stock a chance to re-fill some of its previous gap-down-day zone from earlier this month that started at 90 cents per share.
