The set-up: Catalyst Biosciences Inc. is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company that is developing novel medicines to address serious medical conditions. They just had a news release about achieving “Stable Normal Factor IX Blood Levels in a Preclinical Subcutaneous Dosing Model.”
I’m not going to lie and tell you that I understand what that news really means for the company or the development of its products long-term, but I can tell you that good news pre-market got me to look at the chart.
I’ve traded CBIO a bunch of times recently, so I am confident in what I see on the chart, and it looks like a very favorable end-of-consolidation pattern.
The plan: When you see news combined with a potential end of consolidation move – particularly on a stock chart you know well – look for an entry point. You’ve got a stock to play.
The play: Technically, a break over $4.70 could turn into a short-term play all the way up to $5.25, the previous high.
I’ll be looking for the stock to hold over $4.50, which is the 50-day moving average, for support.
The stock is already trading over $4.70 Pre-market today – after the news was released – If it holds there at the open, I’ll be looking to buy in, and will look to take profits in the $5 to $5.25 range.
