Stocks in Play for September 24 (ATML, ELN, ESRX, SOMX)

Elan Corporation, plc (ELN) is setting up for a very interesting upside move. The stock hit a high of $5.26 last Tuesday, but was not able to close near this level. The past two days we have seen the stock work its way back towards Tuesday’s high. I expect to see a high volume move once the stock breaks through resistance, as traders are watching this stock closely. Keep the stock on your screen because once ELN breaks through resistance, the stock should take off and move quickly. From a technical standpoint, this stock is currently in an uptrend and is finding support from its 50 DMA at 4.82 . If it stays above 4.82 and moves up, then it might even go to 5.49. If the stock falls below this level, then it might see further weakness. In addition, the Chaikin Money Flow Index is showing a rising move, indicating a rising money flow into the stock. Keep ELN on your radar for Friday’s trading session.

In addition, the medium term trend is also bullish as the stock is above 50-day and 200-day moving averages with both moving averages going up. You should watch this stock closely on Friday.
