The biopharmaceutical company that focuses on patients with genomically defined diseases driven by abnormal kinase activation, Blueprint Medicines Corp (NASDAQ: BPMC) seems to be getting ready for a price bump as per the latest charts.
Bullish Move – Chart Indications
#1 Falling Wedge Breakout: As you can see from the daily chart of BPMC, the stock had formed a falling wedge pattern during the past few weeks. This is marked in the chart in purple color lines. The stock has currently broken out of the falling wedge pattern. A falling wedge is a bullish pattern and a breakout from it implies that the stock may move higher in the short term.

#5 Consolidation and Breakout: The stock had consolidated for a while after breaking out from the falling wedge pattern. This consolidation area is marked as a green rectangle. Currently, the stock has broken out of this consolidation area. This seems like a bullish sign.
#6 Good support: There is a good support level close by for the stock which is a resistance-turned-support level. This is marked as light blue color dotted lines. This seems like a good level for the stock price to bounce back in the case of a correction.
#7 Fibonacci Level Support: Usually, after an up-move, stocks retraces to any of the key Fibonacci levels before surging back again. BPMC had taken support at the 50% Fibonacci support level of the upmove before moving up again, as seen in the weekly chart. This seems like a good support area.

Whenever a stock breaks out of this pattern, it typically continues its previous trend (uptrend in this case). Currently, the stock has broken out of the flag pattern. This is a possible sign of an upcoming bullish move.
