  • Buy U.S. Gold (UXG) Price Moving Higher After Cup and Handle Breakout 0 comments
    Jun 10, 2010 4:29 PM | about stocks: UXG

    The cup and handle breakout is a classic pattern which stock market traders search for constantly. A cup and handle pattern means that the stock has made a consolidation where many of the weaker holders sell their shares. Then as the stock breaks into new highs a handle is formed. It is formed because many investors who bought at the previous high are now trying to get back the capital that was initially invested at the previous high. Then a handle is formed. A handle should move sideways or slightly down so investors who bought at the previous high can get back their capital. Once this handle is completed the stock has very little selling pressure and buyers now gain control and push the stock into new highs. Many times the percentage gains are impressive.

    Sometimes a stock forms a triangular pennant after a breakout as in the case of U.S. Gold (NYSE:UXG). These triangular pattern in a handle are bullish and provide investors an opportunity to get in before a major run.

    My ideal buy point is after the breakout of the cup when the handle pulls back to key support. Right now is a good opportunity to add shares before a breakout at $4.31.

    There are four upcoming events that could make this stock move.

    1) 20 drilled hole results from El Gallo in 2 weeks.

    2) El Gallo Initial Resource Estimate in 4 weeks.

    3)Additional Results From Regional Exploration in 6 weeks.

    4)El Gallo Economic Assessment by year end.

    I am excited by the results coming out in mid July from the regional exploration. UXG invested a lot into Mexico this year knowing that this land package could contain a massive amount of silver. I am excited for the next few weeks both from a technical and fundamental perspective.
