Technical Analyst Clive Maund reviews Char Technologies Ltd.'s 6-month chart to tell you where he believes it is headed.

Whilst it had taken considerably longer to break higher than we expected when we bought it in April, the pattern in Char Technologies (YES:TSX) has remained positive throughout, and it gapped higher on big volume on the major news that the biggest steelmaker in the world, ArcelorMittal, is to buy 11 million of the companies' shares with the option to purchase more shares in the company later at a fixed price (70 cents).

The company could not hope for a bigger vote of confidence than this, which is viewed as a very bullish development indeed.

The reason for this development is that Char turns forestry waste products into various renewable energy products, and ArcelorMittal, presumably keep to display its "green" credentials, can use its energy products in its steelmaking.

On the latest 6-month chart, we can see that, although Char rose sharply yesterday, it did not quite succeed in breaking out above the resistance at the top of the large Ascending Triangle pattern that has formed in recent months.

However, the move was on big volume and accompanied by a sizeable gap, which is viewed as strongly bullish, so it is expected to succeed in breaking out to new highs soon and then continue higher.

We, therefore, stay long, and Char is rated a Buy here for continued advance.
