Anavex Life Sciences Corp (OTCMKTS:AVXL) surged sharply in the last trading session and ended the day with a solid gain of 12.68% but it would still be too early to conclude if the sideways corrective phase was finished. The volume of the day at 2.9 million was higher than the daily average of 1.8 million but that was barely proportionate to the rally seen in the price. The long term structure remains bullish and the sideways phase has been but a necessary pause but the price now faces the stiff supply zone around $1.65-$1.70, as seen from the chart. To absorb the supply, the stock needs a lot of volume in the next couple of sessions.
