Checking the percent-gain leaderboard, the big winner today was Genocea Biosciences, Inc. (GNCA), up 3.77 to 7.74, or 95%, on 22 million shares, and traded to 8.45 in afterhours.

Primo Water Corporation (PRMW) had an interesting day, up 63 cents to 10.09.

Stepping back and reviewing the hourly chart patterns, the indices started the day with a rally, they pulled back midmorning, got to the session highs midday, and then rolled over pretty hard, even taking out important support slightly before the rally late in the day, and in the last 5-10 minutes they really saw a little bit of a hard pullback into the close to finish negative on the day.

Let’s see what happens tomorrow.

Good Trading!
