Shares of CLDX are trading sharply higher in front of the company's upcoming catalyst. On May 23, CLDX will release data on its Phase IIb clinical trial for CDX-011, the company's investigative treatment for breast cancer.

From a technical perspective, CLDX has started to move back above its 50-day moving average today of $4.44 on decent volume. This move is quickly pushing CLDX within range of triggering a near-term breakout trade. That trade will hit once CLDX takes out some near-term overhead resistance at $4.78 with high-volume.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades once CLDX sustains a move or close above $4.78 with volume that's near or well above 1,124,690 shares. If we get that action soon, look for CLDX to tag its next significant overhead resistance levels at $5.47 to $5.66 in the near future.
