The charts show that Point Loma Resources Ltd. (PLX:TSX) is an energy stock that is under accumulation by someone—or something—with a lot of clout. On its 2-year chart we can see that it has been in a persistent and quite severe downtrend from its highs early in 2017, but in recent months a big buyer has showed up, repeatedly buying large blocks of stock, and he (she/it) appears to have started to put a floor under the stock at the support level shown. This big buying has driven both volume indicators steeply higher, a very bullish sign. As the 200-day moving average still has some way to fall before it catches up with the price, the stock could continue to base for a while longer. However, the recent aggressive buying means that it could start a new uptrend sooner rather than later, so anyone interested in this stock would probably be better off going for it now following the recent dip, since by delaying you could miss it.
The 6-month chart doesn't show us much that we can't see on the 2-year, but it does show recent action in more detail. One additional detail we can see on this chart is how oversold it currently is on its MACD indicator.
Conclusion: Point Loma is under heavy accumulation and believed to be basing in advance of a new uptrend that could be strong, and "come out of the blue." Therefore rated an immediate buy here on the current dip. Point Loma trades in light volumes on the U.S. OTC market and there are 42 million shares in issue.
