From a technical perspective, IDIX is bouncing notably here right near its 50-day moving average of $9.46 with light volume. This stock recently ran into some heavy resistance at around $11.30, but shares of IDIX are still well within an uptrend that started back in May at $7.36. During that uptrend, shares of IDIX have been making mostly higher lows and higher highs, which is bullish technical price action. The recent pullback for IDIX to its 50-day moving average could be representing a solid buying opportunity.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades as long as IDIX can hold above both its 50-day at $9.46 and its 200-day at $9.10 with strong upside volume flows. I would consider any upside volume day that registers near or above 1.5 million shares as bullish. If those levels hold, then IDIX will have a great chance of re-testing and possibly taking out $11.30.

As of the most recently reported period, IDIX was one of Seth Klarman's Baupost Group holdings.
