Mineral Resources: Ready To Launch?

Technicals | Mar 23 2021


By MichaelGable

Last Tuesday it appeared as though the Australian market was starting to move out of its recent range, but it has once again fallen back and continues to show no progress since early December. Commodities, outside of iron ore, seem to be holding up well and recently-covered stocks such as Incitec Pivot, OZ Minerals, and De Gray Mining still look good. Travel stocks also continue to look good at the moment.

Outside of that, most sectors continue to drift sideways. Having said that, there are some opportunities in today's research. We have taken a look at Mineral Resources ((MIN)).

MIN is looking very interesting here. We can see that at the end of February, it failed to push beyond the January peak, but that it wasn't sold down heavily. It is now clear that the shares are forming a flag underneath this old high, and that is a bullish sign. It looked set to break out of this flag last week but has remained within it for now. It should therefore just be a matter of time until MIN is ready to launch out of this flag and therefore resume the uptrend. A deeper pullback to levels under $36 would be viewed as a negative.
