A similar picture only in another commodity

Nickel on India’s MCX exchange was not suspended during the past 2 weeks, allowing for true price discovery.

Although the intra-day high touched INR 5,617 (nearly tripling in a matter of days), it has since fallen 63%.

What does this tell us?

Perhaps, the short squeeze was an anomaly?

Maybe, peace in Ukraine is near?

or Russia’s share of Nickel production isn’t that important?

Beyond this, my three main points are;

1) Someone buying 1 contract of Nickel at INR 5,617 isn’t representative of the where the ‘whole’ market is trading Nickel

2) These so called ‘blow-off’ tops isn’t the place to be ‘playing’ and

3) parabolic shapes are honoured (with great probability) by subsequent savage retracements.

Time for Nickel (and IGO) to pullback

Here is the stock price of ASX listed, Independence Group (IGO:ASX) 

(orange line)overlaid with the Nickel price. (blue line)

A fairly good correlation I’d say.

With Nickel flirting with weekly Overbought levels and exhibiting 

a historical stretch above its 100 and 200 week moving averages, 

mean reversion is calling. 

IGO’s timing and strategy of using its stock to acquire fellow Nickel 

miner, Western Areas is perfect.

In turn, IGO’s stock price has now broken below an important support level.

I’m looking for it to trade down to $7.67 by August 31, 2021.
