Figure 1: Daily chart of Aurizon Mines.
The daily chart for Aurizon Mines (ARZ-T) shows a breakout from the large 14-month symmetrical triangle for this mining and exploration company. Aurizon Mines is located and traded in Canada. This highly speculative equity has an excellent pattern with diminished volume and a strong breakout in the $1.60 area on much higher volume. There is an early warning of higher prices with an increase in activity in the months of April, May and June of 2003. I have not included a small triangle on the chart that formed in May and June of 2003 that is part of the early warning signal. ARZ-T is currently in a hesitation mode prior to the run-up. Normally, you would see a throwback to the line in the $1.50 area, but similar to the Lucent Technologies situation that I wrote about a few months ago, this throwback will not likely drop all the way down to the line. Anticipating the trendline to hold in the $1.70 area is likely, but if it does break I would continue to add to my long position all the way down to the $1.55 area. Naturally, if the triangle line in the $1.50 area were broken I would bail out of all long positions since this equity would be untrustworthy from a technical standpoint.
|I anticipate this equity to go to all time highs above the previous all time high of $2.35 CDN. This would be at least a 50% return. However, I expect it to "pop" higher if our prognostication is correct. Speculative mining equities can be dangerous as well as profitable so I urge caution to anyone who does not have an entrepreneurial spirit and to look elsewhere.|
