Recommended Trade (based on the charts)

Buy Levels: If you want to get in on this trade, the ideal buy level for IGMS is if it corrects to the breakout level of the ascending triangle pattern at around $75.00.

However, for those with a higher risk appetite, you can purchase half the intended quantity of shares of IGMS above the price of $88.00.

TP: Our target prices are $90 and $100 based on the breakout from the Ascending Triangle pattern.

SL: To limit risk, place a stop loss near $65.30 (for entry near $75) and $82 (for entry near $88). Note that this stop loss is on a closing basis.

Our target potential upside is 13% to 33% in the next 3-5 months.

  • Entry near $75: For a risk of $9.70, the target rewards are $15.00 and $25.00. This is a nearly 1:2 and 1:3 risk-reward trade.
  • Entry near $88: For a risk of $6.00, the target reward (TP#2) is $12.00. This is a nearly 1:2 risk-reward trade.

In other words, this trade offers nearly 2x to 3x more potential upside than downside.

Risks to Consider
The stock may reverse its overall trend if it breaks down with high volume from the ascending triangle pattern. The sell-off of the stock could also be triggered in case of any negative news, overall weakness in the market, or any regulatory changes in its sector.
