Inovio Pharmaceuticals Daily Chart Analysis

  • The stock pulled back in recent months, forming what technical traders call a falling wedge pattern.

Key Inovio Pharmaceuticals Levels To Watch

  • Inovio Pharmaceuticals has been forming the falling wedge pattern since August 2020 and is now nearing the point in the pattern.
  • This bullish reversal pattern forms as the stock shows a steeper downward trend in the highs than it does with the lows forming a wedge on the chart.
  • A break out of the pattern resistance may follow with a large upward move, while a break through the pattern support may bring about a strong downward push.

What’s Next For Inovio Pharmaceuticals?

Bullish technical traders would like to see the stock break out of the pattern resistance and change trends. 

If the pattern broke out and saw a large upward move, bulls would want to see a period of consolidation before the stock continues to move higher.

Bearish technical traders would like to see the stock fall through the bottom of the wedge pattern, breaking support. If this were to occur, the stock may see a further downward push. Following a downward push, bears would like to see consolidation below the pattern for a possible further move.
