The copper price dropped substantially between mid-April and mid-July, with the decline being especially severe from early June through mid-July when it hit bottom.
Price / volume action in recent weeks suggests that it has been basing with good upside volume that has driven the Accumulation line higher.
On its latest six-month chart it looks like a small Head-and-Shoulders bottom has been forming and with the Right Shoulder of the pattern looking complete it should soon break above the resistance at the upper boundary of the pattern which would be expected to lead to a run back up to the broader band of resistance in the $4.05 - $4.20 area.
Such an advance should lead to good gains in most copper stocks, like Infinitum Copper (INFI.TSV.V) that we will now proceed to look at below.
Infinitum Copper’s chart doesn’t require much analysis.
Most of its decline from mid-April was due to the drop in the copper price, which is why we looked at that first, and it may have been partly due to it doing a financing at CA$0.20.
So, clearly the price would want to gravitate to that level.
However, all the news from now on looks good as in addition to copper looking like it is turning up again, the CA$1.3 million financing has now been closed (completed), in addition to which drilling, which began in March, looks likely to yield results soon.
Lastly, at least 50% of the stock is believed to be tightly held.
The conclusion is that Infinitum Copper looks set to break higher and rally soon due to copper doing likewise and for its own reasons and it is therefore rated an Immediate Speculative Buy.
Note that although Infinitum does trade on the US OTC market, it is usually on very light volumes, so it is best to trade it on the Canadian market if possible.
One last but important point—if copper is going to rally then it is highly likely that silver will too.
Checking silver’s chart we see that while copper has been marking out a small Head-and-Shoulders bottom, silver has been marking out a small Cup and Handle base, with the Handle forming now beneath its 50-day moving average.
Silver is therefore expected to break higher too.
