    Recently moved out of a nice downtrend, popped on news:

    NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Anavex (AVXL) stock is up by 10.55% to $5.88 in mid-morning trading on Friday, after the FDA granted the company's dementia treatment with an Orphan Drug Designation.

    Been watching this. Hard to get in on a big position, with a company that has <20 employees.

    Looks like this is going to make a move to push through the 200 sma.

    Getting some volume this early morning, (still) pushing against the 200 sma.

    There's been some Alzheimer's-related leak from Biogen (partnering with AVXL on a study).

    Be cautious with this stock. Fewer than 20 employees of a company that is a clinical stage biotech. They are in it to be acquired, as they do not have a sufficient work force to actually sell their product.

    Up 7% after hours today.

    Having trouble getting over 5.75 now. If this closes red, then we may finally start seeing a pullback (this has been riding above the Bollinger Band for a week). The 10 sma is currently around 5.045.

    Getting squeezed by 20 sma support and the downtrend line. See if big volume comes in tomorrow.

    For a long time this one has been quiet. Has it been a long consolidation? It's a tricky company that I just watch

    Weekly chart, looking promising. 8 months without a big pullback:
