Mineral sands explorer Iluka Resources attracted market attention today, gapping sharply higher at the open, and recording a 13% rise for the day, to reach a high of $8.32. This rise comes in the wake of an excellent quarterly report.
This shows a change in trend, after the shares had trended lower from $12 three and a half years ago.
Today’s surge has resulted in the share-price penetrating resistance of the trading range of the past twelve months, and attaining a new high for the year. However, the RSI is bordering on the over-bought zone, warning that the price could soften tomorrow. Inevitably there will be profit taking, but will there be enough buying support to offset this, and to sustain further gains?
