Novavax Daily Chart Analysis

  • Shares look to be nearing resistance in what technical traders call an ascending triangle pattern.

  • The stock has found resistance near the $260 in the past, and the stock looks to be nearing this area once again. The higher low trendline is an area where the stock has found support in the past and this line may continue to hold as support in the future.

  • The stock is trading above both the 50-day moving average (green) and the 200-day moving average (blue), indicating sentiment in the stock is likely turning bullish.

  • Each of these moving averages may hold as a possible area of support in the future.
