The clinical-stage biotechnology company that focuses on harnessing the body’s innate biology to repair or reverse damage caused by a broad range of degenerative diseases, Frequency Therapeutics Inc. (NASDAQ: FREQ) seems to be getting ready for a price bump as per the latest charts.
Bullish Move – Chart Indications
#1 Flag Breakout: As you can see from the daily chart, the stock was in a strong uptrend after which it started consolidating and was in a narrow range. This is a classic flag pattern and is marked in the chart in orange color. Currently, the stock has broken out of the flag. A Flag is a continuation pattern. Whenever a stock breaks out of the flag pattern, it typically continues its previous trend (uptrend in this case).
#2 Price above MA: The stock is currently trading above the short-term moving average of 50-day SMA. This indicates that the bulls are slowly gaining control.

#5 Bullish ADX and DI: The ADX line has started to move up from below –DI and +DI lines, while the +DI line is currently above –DI line.
All these indicate possible bullishness.
#6 Fibonacci Support: The weekly chart shows that the stock has currently bounced back higher after taking support at the 23.6% Fibonacci level. The stock is currently above the 38.2% Fibonacci level and moving higher. This is a possible bullish sign.
#7 Bullish RSI: The weekly chart shows that the RSI is currently above 50 and moving higher, indicating the strength of the current upmove.
#8 Bullish Stoch: The %K line is above the %D line of the stochastic in the weekly chart. It is also moving up from oversold levels. All these indicate possible bullishness.
