IDEXX Laboratories (IDXX) Resumes The Uptrend


IDEXX has built a textbook consolidation with an ascending base. Today it moved above the previous closing highs and looks like it is resuming a big uptrend. 

The SCTR has moved back above 90 and the relative strength is almost at new highs. The price action is obviously bullish but this $208 level has provided some resistance. With today's surge, the stock looks to be leaving the $208 level in the rear view mirror. 

The volume is ok with an average of 490,000 shares a day and the MACD has just turned up. This looks setup for another leg higher.
