MetalsX: Opportunity Awaits

Technicals | Feb 08 2022

This story features METALS X LIMITED. For more info SHARE ANALYSIS: MLX

By Michael Gable 

The Australian share market has edged higher this past week but crucially remains below the old support level near 7200. If we spend a few more days under it without a major sell-off, then we can start to become confident that we will chop sideways for a while. At the moment, the risk, on balance, is still to the downside.

US markets are also displaying signs that they will drift sideways at best for now, but a further capitulation is still a real possibility. A sideways market, however, can provide shorter-term opportunities if the set-ups are good, stops are tight, and position sizes are small. It is still too early for the big opportunities.

In today's report, we have a chart which highlights a potential opportunity in MetalsX ((MLX)).

MLX has been in a nice steady uptrend over the past several months. Most recently, it is forming a very clear resistance line just under 60c. This provides traders with a very clear trigger on when to buy. A break above this line would be a buy signal and traders can then place a tight stop under the breakout. For the moment, we need to wait for that break.
