The biopharmaceutical company that focuses on the development and commercialization of immunotherapies and other cancer-targeting biologics, Celldex Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ: CLDX) seems to be ready for a price surge in the near-term.
#1 Flag Pattern Breakout: As you can see from the daily chart, the stock was in an 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 purple color. 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). Currently, the stock has broken out of the flag pattern, which is a possible bullish sign.
#2 MACD above Signal Line: The daily chart shows that the MACD line (blue color) is above the MACD signal line (orange color). The MACD indicator is also moving up from oversold levels. This is a possible bullish setup.
#4 Bullish Aroon: The value of Aroon Up (orange line) is above 70 while Aroon Down (blue line) is below 30 in the daily chart. This indicates possible bullishness.
#5 Bullish Stochastic: The %K line is currently above the %D line in the stochastic. This indicates possible bullishness.
#6 Gap Support: The weekly chart shows that there is a gap support close-by for the stock. This is marked as an orange color dotted line. This seems like a good level for the stock to move higher.
#7 Above MA: The stock is currently trading above its 50-week SMA, indicating possible bullishness.
#8 Bullish ADX and DI: The ADX indicator in the weekly chart shows bullishness because (+DI) is greater than (-DI), and the ADX line is currently above the (+DI) and (-DI) lines.
#9 MACD Above Signal Line: In the weekly chart as well, the MACD line (light blue color) is currently above the MACD signal line (orange color). This is a possible bullish sign.
