We went for Snowline Gold Corp. (SGD:CSE; SNWGF:OTCQB) late in January at a somewhat higher price, thinking it had probably hit bottom after its decline to the lower boundary of a large trading range, but it hadn’t, and it sank even lower in sympathy with further sector weakness.
That said, the setup now looks more favorable than back then, with it looking like it is very close to the Right Shoulder low of the potential Head-and-Shoulders bottom shown on the 6-month chart below.
Whilst it is true that it apparently breached the support at the lower boundary of the trading range, which was at about CA$2.25 last September, it is suspected that this may be a “head fake,” especially as the Accumulation line continues to show impressive relative strength relative to the price and the entire sector looks due a rally soon.
For the reasons set out on the 1-year chart, all of the action from the peak last August is thought to be a correction/consolidation to the big runup into last August.
If so, then another major upleg should develop soon, and here’s the thing — even if a large top is forming, there is a good chance that it will make another run at the top of the trading range, which would result in significant percentage gains from here.
If the current pattern is indeed a small Head-and-Shoulders bottom, then we are at a great entry point here very close to its Right Shoulder low, and another advantage for buyers here is that, due to the proximity of key support, fairly close stops can be set beneath it, say at just below CA$2.00, to limit loss in the event that the judgment on it is proven incorrect.
