One of the hottest names on the OTC so far in 2019, Kraig Biocraft Laboratories Inc (OTCMKTS:KBLB), has been pulling back sharply in recent action and may have just shown signs of putting in key support. We would normally want to see a retest of the low of this pullback and successful signs of a clear chasing bid coming up under the action before declaring this a trading opportunity on the long-side for a possible retest of the highs. At this point, we would simply make sure to point it out and suggest it needs to be on the trading radar. To make matters more interesting, the company just announced that it has submitted five new provisional patent applications, for technologies related to its recombinant spider silk technologies.
According to the release, “These applications cover a broad range of technologies in the creation, screening, and production of new recombinant proteins. These new applications expand beyond the Company’s publicly disclosed silkworm and silk technologies, to include advanced construction systems, methods, and non-native proteins. In November, of 2018, the Company retained Workman Nydegger as its Intellectual Property counsel and expects to utilize their expertise in prosecuting these, and all future, patent applications.”
