Vascular Biogenics Ltd. (VBLT), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company yesterday announced positive results from the Data Safety Monitoring Committee (DSMC) of the company’s phase 3 GLOBE trial of VB-111.

VBLT Technical Analysis

Vascular Biogenics
Vascular Biogenics

VBLT opened trading yesterday at $5.15 which was down from the previous day’s trading close of $5.20. VBLT closed trading yesterday at $5.20 and spiked up after market to $6.05, equivalent to a 16% increase from the closing price.

Taking a look at the daily chart we can see that the last time VBLT traded above these levels we have to go back to March 13th when it traded at $6.10. Taking a closer look at the daily chart we can see that before the spike up VBLT had been in an overall downward trend dating back to March 10th when it traded at $6.25. VBLT has a float of 8.32 million shares and traded below the normal daily trading volume on Thursday.

For day trading purposes, I would like to see VBLT have high relative volume and open trading on Friday above $7.75, and if it does, I would be looking to take a long position at the bell. My stop loss would be $0.10 from my entry position fearing anything more than that and the stock would start to fill in the gap up.
