That data is expected to be released in the next several weeks. From a technical perspective, KERX is bouncing higher here right off some near-term support at $2.80 with light volume. This action is quickly pushing KERX within range of triggering a major breakout trade. That trade will hit once KERX manages to clear $3 to $3.08 with high volume. If those levels get taken out, then KERX will have nothing but a gap down zone above it for resistance, since the stock gapped down in April from $5 to below $1.75. Traders should now look for long-biased trades in KERX as long as it's trending above its 50-day at $2.68, and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that hits near or above 1.28 million shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then KERX will set up to re-fill some of that massive gap from April. Some possible upside targets are $4 to $5 in the near future.
