Stocks in this article: ONVOTTHIVICLCDTISCON

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in VICL as long as it's trending above support at $1.25 or $1.21 and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that hits near or above 2.14 million shares. If that breakout hits soon, then VICL will set up to re-fill some of its previous gap down zone from August that started near $3.75.
