From a technical perspective, PGNX is ripping higher here with light volume. This stock has been downtrending badly for the last three months, with shares plunging from $6.50 to its recent low of $2.38. During that downtrend, shares of PGNX have been consistently making lower highs and lower lows, which is bearish technical price action. That said, PGNX has started to rebound the last few weeks with the stock now making higher lows and higher highs, which is bullish action.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in PGNX if it can manage to trigger a near-term breakout trade above some resistance levels at $3.40 to $3.88 with high volume. Look for a sustained move or close above those levels with volume that hits near or above 329,631 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then PGNX will setup to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at $4.36 to $4.75.
