AXU Breakout

I received a price alert on AXU (Alexco Resource Group). This mining stock has taken out dual-resistance levels today; both the downtrend line as well as the horizontal resistance at 0.45 and looks to provide an objective long entry here. I do have my concerns about this breakout sticking as I made the case for a likely pullback in the mining sector in the previous post earlier today. With that being said, the charts look bullish so I'm going to add AXU as an Active Long Trade idea here at 0.46 with a suggested stop below 0.40 and a sole price [...]

AXU long

here's a nice, potential long-term trade idea passed along to me by "The Stock Fox", an excellent resource for gold and silver stocks.  click here to see their charts & notes on the trade and i've posted my take on the charts below. essentially, AXU looks like an objective long entry around current levels as it has fallen to the bottom of both a multi-year support level as well as the bottom of the wedge shown on this 120 minute chart.  as this is a potential bottoming play, one might consider beginning to scale in around current levels with the next [...]
