1-year chart of Sarepta (Nasdaq: SRPT)
For the most part, SRPT has been trending lower for the last 8 months. However, during the most recent 3 months the stock has had a tendency of creating key price levels at the increments of $2.50 (red). For example, the current level of support is $12.50. Next, $15 has popped up a couple of times as both support and resistance, same thing with $17.50.

The Tale of the Tape: SRPT is approaching its key level of $15. A long trade could be made on a break above that level with a stop placed under it. A short trade could be made at $15 with the expectation of a fall down to the next $2.50 level at $12.50.
