The Novonix Ltd (ASX: NVX) share price has soared 10% in today’s trading session.
The most immediate catalyst that could explain today’s bullish price action can be traced back to late last week.
The battery materials and technology company released its quarterly report last Friday which initially saw shares in the company get sold down.
However, investors seem to have changed their tune after digesting the company’s report over the weekend.
