Traders should now look for long-biased trades in LGND as long as it's trending above some key near-term support at $19.03, and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that hits near or above 143,311 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then LGND will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at $22 to $23. Any move above those levels could then put $25 into focus for shares of LGND.
