From a technical perspective, CHTP is bouncing sharply to the upside here right off some near-term support at $1.20 with light volume. This move is starting to push CHTP within range of triggering a near-term breakout trade. That trade will hit once CHTP takes out some near-term overhead resistance levels at $1.48 to $1.54 with high volume.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in CHTP as long as it's trending above $1.20, and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that's near or above 1.2 million shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then CHTP will have a great chance of re-testing or possibly taking out its next major overhead resistance levels at $1.99 to $2.30, or possibly even its 200-day moving average at $2.71.
