Viking Therapeutics - Chart Of The Day

The Chart of the Day belongs to Viking Therapeutics (VKTX). I found the biopharmaceutical stock by using Barchart to sort today's 52 Week High List first for the highest Weighted Alpha, then I used the Flipchart feature to review the charts of consistent price appreciation. Since the Trend Spotter signaled a buy on 11/10 the stock gained 46.35%.
