5 Biotech Stocks Rising on Unusual Volume

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in AEZS as long as it's trending above today's low of $1.90, and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that hits near or above 5700,360 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then AEZS will set up to re-fill some of its previous gap down zone from October that started above $3. Any high-volume move above its 50-day at $2.98 will then put $3.55 to $4 into focus for AEZS.

Endocyte (ECYT - Get Report)

It uses its proprietary technology to create novel small molecule drug conjugates, or SMDCs, and companion imaging diagnose. This stock is trading up 9.9% to $8.52 in recent trading.

Today's Range: $7.75-$8.51

52-Week Range: $3.02-$11.11

Volume: 242,000

Three-Month Average Volume: 226,471

Shares of ECYT are soaring today after Summer Street started coverage on the stock with a buy rating and an $18 price target.

From a technical perspective, ECYT is exploding higher here right near its 200-day moving average of $7.39 with above-average volume. This move has also pushed ECYT into breakout territory, since the stock has moved above some near-term overhead resistance at $8.24. This move is coming after ECYT recently downtrended from a high of $10.97 to its recent low of $7.50.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in ECYT as long as it's trending above its 200-day at $7.39, and then once it sustains a move or close above $8.24 with volume that hits near or above 226,471 shares. If ECYT can maintain that trend, then this stock will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at $9.50 to $10. Any high-volume move above those levels will then put $10.68 to $10.97 into focus for ECYT.
