If you're in the bull camp on SNTS, then I would look for long-biased trades if this stock manages to break out above some near-term overhead resistance at $11.76 a share with high volume. Look for a sustained move or close above $11.76 a share with volume that registers near or above its three-month average action of 779,339 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then SNTS will set up to enter new 52-week high territory, which is bullish technical price action.
Traders can also look to buy SNTS off any pullback that pushes the stock back towards its 50-day at $9.70 a share to anticipate that breakout.
