1-year chart of Arrowhead (Nasdaq: ARWR)
ARWR had an awful March and April just like most biotech stocks. Since the May low, the stock appears to have formed a double bottom (green) price pattern. The pattern is as simple as it sounds: Bottoming, rallying up to a point, selling back off to a similar bottom, and then rallying back up again.
As with any price pattern, a confirmation of the pattern is needed. ARWR would confirm the pattern by breaking up through the $15.50 resistance (blue) that has been created by the double bottom pattern.

The Tale of the Tape: After trending lower into May, ARWR has formed a double bottom price pattern. A long trade could be entered on a break above the $15.50 resistance with a stop placed under that level.
