OPHT Ophthotech All Time High Stock – Potential Big Biotech Winner In The Making

by Olivier on June 3, 2014

Set-ups don’t get much better than this. OPHT – Ophthotech, a Biotech stock, just put in an all time high close. As you can see in the chart annotations the move started with a huge gap up and then the stock ran up on huge volume. This is the hallmark of a bullish break-away gap marking the beginning of a potentially long lasting run-up. Make no mistake, if this is indeed a break-away gap, the gap won’t get filled. It is tough to tell exactly when a set-up like this can start to run without offering the easy entry. An all time high is a great clue a relentless run-up could happen anytime. Almost everybody is in the green and the overall pattern pressure is there. From a purely technical perspective this is the best signal you could wish for. There are no guarantees but when chart set-ups like these come along I go for it. Then I manage my risk. Act accordingly.

Two nice quotes from Peter L. Brandt: “Diary Of A Professional Commodity Trader – Lessons From 21 Weeks Of Real Trading” on page 113 and 116, that are related to pattern interpretation:

Markets most often provide signals when the real moves begin. Waiting for substantial patterns to become complete is where the profits are to be found. – Peter L. Brandt

The longer I need to examine a chart, the less likely the market in question is offering a trading opportunity. For me, signals are patently obvious. Whether they will be profitable is another matter. – Peter L. Brandt
