Technical Analyst Sees 'Strong Speculative Buy' on Nevada Royalty Holder
Contributed Opinion

Share on Stocktwits


Technical analyst Clive Maund charts a small-cap with royalties on a gold project in Nevada, and explains why he sees it as a strong speculative buy.

Although Terraco Gold Corp. (TEN:TSX.V; TCEGF:OTCPK) stock hasn't done much since we looked at it late last year and in fact it is barely changed, the technical case for owning its stock and the fundamental case for owning its stock remains the same, but the difference now, as we will see in this update, is that it looks like it is about to get moving at last, which of course is partly due to improving conditions across the sector.

Since what was set out in those earlier reports remains valid, there is no need for us to go over this material again in this update. Here we are going to focus on how the stock is shaping up technically.

First of all let's remind ourselves how cheap this stock is historically by means of its 11-year chart. On it we can see that it got to over 50 cents at the start of 2011 but since then it has been downhill all the way. However, the latest downtrend from mid-2016, that has taken it marginally to new lows, has been going on for a long time now, making it likely that it is close to a cyclical low here, especially as the fundamentals are favorable and the entire sector is firming up for a major new bull market. Note that a 20-year chart may be viewed in the 31st October article on Terraco.

While it is not of much use technically, the 6-month chart shows recent action in detail, and in particular a marked buildup in upside volume over the past five weeks that has driven the Accumulation line sharply higher, and to another new high on its 11-year chart. This of course is bullish, and even after the rise of the past few days, Terraco is still cheap here, as the 11-year chart forcefully reminds us.

The conclusion is that Terraco is a strong speculative buy here, and since it has barely moved yet, there is considered to be relatively little downside risk.
