Technical analyst Clive Maund charts this copper and gold stock that is exploring a project in British Columbia that he rates an "immediate buy."

Libero's Big Red

Libero Copper and Gold Corp. (LBC:TSX.V:, LBCMF:OTCQB) is looking attractive here. The fundamentals for the company are believed to be positive, and it announced a sizeable gold discovery early this month at Big Red, which caused the price to spike up briefly on huge volume, a move which on its 6-month chart appears to be a premature attempt to break out of what is suspected to be a bull Flag. The overall tenor of this chart is positive, with the price trending higher and moving averages in bullish alignment. The duration of the Flag thus far has allowed time for the earlier overbought condition resulting from the breakout to largely unwind as shown by the MACD indicator and a bullish development in recent days is that the MACD has broken clear above its moving average. It looks about ready to start another upleg, although we may first see a minor dip towards the support at the C$0.14 level.

On the long-term 10-year chart we can see that this stock has a lot of potential from the current low price. It appears to be completing a rather rare "Buttocks Reversal" whose visual appeal is sadly reduced somewhat by the right one being narrower than the left one. Notwithstanding this imperfection, the volume pattern is suggesting that the price is about ready to break out upside, and a break above the resistance at the top of the pattern at approximately $0.20 – C$0.24 should mark the start of a major new bull market in the stock, which will of course be against the background of the unfolding bull market in gold. The Buttocks Reversal is actually the result of a failed breakout from a Cup & Handle base, after which the price slumps back into the base pattern to do more work marking out another Cup & Handle base, and there is considerably less chance of the breakout from the 2nd Cup & Handle base failing than the 1st, giving further grounds for optimism.

Libero Copper & Gold therefore looks like an immediate buy here. Libero trades in reasonable volumes on the US OTC market, where limit orders should always be employed, and of its 56 million shares in issue, only about 15 million are in the float.
