Randgold Resources Short Term Bullish Sequence

Randgold Resources (NASDAQ: GOLD) was founded 22 years ago in 1995, it’s a gold mining business operating in Africa mainly in Mali. The price of Gold & Silver dropped significantly early this month which put a lot of pressure on mining stocks but Rangold was one of the strongest and managed to rally %14 to make new 2017 high. Let’s take a look at the technical chart to identify the potential path.

Since the September 2015 low, GOLD rallied in 5 waves diagonal structure then topped in July 2016 like the precious metals. The stock corrected that rally in a double three structure which reached the equal legs area $72.51 – $64.62 and ended the 7th swing lower. So it held above 2015 low ($54) and bounced from the inflection area to create a higher low sequence supporting the idea of GOLD resuming the rally to the upside.

The Elliott Wave structure can be labeled in different ways depending on how the move will develop and the current most aggressive view would be another 5 waves from December 2016 low with the first wave already in place . Consequently as the stock already made new high last week then it’s now showing an incomplete bullish sequence from the lows that would at least take the stock higher toward equal legs area $110.75 – $117.28. So currently the pullback that should happen from inflection area $98.16-$95.37 needs to hold above March low and buyers needs to step up for the rally to resume higher. The alternative view in case the pivot at March low breaks then GOLD would be doing a flat structure from February peak and still in wave (2) which should ideally hold above $67.54 low to maintain the bullish view.

The short term path can be adjusted according to new price action but while pivot at December 2016 low is intact then the stock should extend higher to reach the equal legs area around $140 from 2015 low. That move can be counted as a simple Zigzag structure and take some time before it happens but it can also be a part of a new impulse sequence and accelerate to the upside.

Randgold Recap

The overall picture for the mining company is suggesting more gains to be seen in the future that could take Rangold stock toward $110 as a first step before breaking to new all time highs targeting $140. The move will be supported by a recovery in the precious metals and using Gold to Silver Ratio could be a good proxy to identify the right timing to start the next leg higher.
