You sound a knowledgeable trader to me using all these technical indicators but still not making profit. Do you know where do you lack? How much profit do you want to make per trade? What is your trading style? I, personally trade actively, once I recognize a bullish trend I get in and out based on candles pattern along with using support/resistance points. And why do you just trade stocks more than 30$, I know with stocks lower than 10$ comes with more volatility but again I'm active trader so I can do that. Just take an example of AUPH, look at the chart pattern for last few weeks and you can see a very clear pattern of 20C to 40C up/down movements and just with that you can make good money. Your strategy depends on a lot of factors including the size of capital, risk tolerance, trading style etc. If you give me some more info, I think I can give you more specific advise. Do you mean 250K for volume or 25K ? coz 25K for 30$ plus stock is very low volume.
