Shares of Arena Pharmaceuticals, Inc.(NASDAQ:ARNA) soared 76.2% or $2.53 to 5.85 per share on Positive Results from Phase 1b Clinical Trial Evaluating APD334. The technical chart shows the buyers are back. The stock closed above the 200-day exp moving average for the first time since early June, on massive volume. If you are short term trading, go long on the break of resistance at 6.25 or the break of today’s candle high. I will wait for a retracement to get back in.

BlackBerry Ltd (NASDAQ:BBRY) needs to close again above the 11 level on a daily basis in order to mitigate the negative near term view. A breakout from this sideways zone will give us an excellent opportunity for investors to pick up long positions. However, as long as the stock price still in this area, the bias remains neutral. The techical indicators MACD and RSI all point to upward trend. A/D shows accumulation going on despite the recent pullback.

Penn National Gaming, Inc (NASDAQ:PENN) jumped $1.02 or 7.72% today to 14.23, breaking out above previous levels of resistance on the daily chart. The stock hit a 52-week high of $14.75 in November, but has pulled back the past few weeks. The stock is setting up to make a move back to highs and I will be watching. The technical chart shows very strong upward momentum as the stock is trading above all key exponential moving averages with positive technical indicators, such as an upward-trending MACD.
