Vitae Pharmaceuticals - Chart of the Day

Vitae Pharmaceuticals (VTAE) is the Barchart Chart of the Day.  The Pharma company has a Trend Spotter buy signal but a Weighted Alpha of 34.40- and lost 12.30% in the last year.  But look at the rebound!

The Chart of the Day belongs to Vitae Pharmaceutical (VTAE).  I found the stock by using Barchart to sort the Russell 3000 Index stock for the highest technical buy signals than used the Flipchart feature to review the charts.  Since the Trend Spotter signaled a buy on 11/9 the stock gained 24.13%.
