NCM, like the price of gold, which it follows, has been an ongoing disappointment. It makes promising signals of probable rise only to turn and fall lower. Two weeks ago it made a new low, negating any previous buy signals. However, that low was a double low as it coincides with the low of March 2020 and double lows suggest material price rises are likely. If prices move up and break the downtrend line currently at aorund $24, then it would be likely price will move higher. Coming off a very significant low, NCM could prove to be a good punt for a long-term hold.

NCM (like physical gold which it largely mirrors) has been struggling to break higher after a March 2021 low. It rallied making March look like a bottom only to fall back and make a lower low. NCM's sideways pattern suggests that having recently retested the March 2021 low again, and moved up, it is likely to keep going. With gold up nearly 4% last week, NCM could be a promising addition to a portfolio. It recently broke above a downtrend and (needless to say) is coming off a significant low.

NCM broke above a downtrend at the end of March, making a strong buy signal. However, after rallying for a short time price fell away to break below the long term support line (blue dashed line) that has held for 8 years - until now. Price has risen for the last 2 weeks and closed yesterday at the long term support line (althought that is now ressitance until price breaks above it). Price is also sitting just below a new downtrend line the recent price fall created - and a 2 week break above that line would be a new buy signal. Gold has been in the doldrums but may be making a resurgance. If so, NCM's prospects are strong.

NCM failed to achieve its possible move up noted a month ago. Price fell back after hitting resistance at $28.80 but after getting as low as $26.11 it jumped 3% last week. If that recovery is sustained and price again gets above $28.80, a target of $31.70 is possible in the short term. Note that support and resistance levels tend to be a bit random with NCM and I have recalculated them on the chart below.

While I don't put a lot of importance on Time Theory, it is interesting. The vertical lines on the chart suggest times when price could change trend (ie a peak or trough). It's not 100% reliable but most of the line on NCM's chart fall close to a peak or trough. If price does rise for a time the theory suggests a possible peak to that rally around a week or two either side of June 10. Something to watch.

NCM has broken above a downtrend that has been in force since last August. The stock has been trading in a large price channel  since 2013 and price has recently bounced up off that channel lower boundary and made a higher weekly high. While it could be expected price could retest the lower channel boundary once more before moving higher, all analysis suggests NCM's price will move back towards the upper boundary of its price channel. Such a move, over time, to around $40 would represent a potential gain of 50%. NCM can be quite volatile but could be worth considering as a long term hold.

NCM has been reliably trading in a long-term price channel for several years and with price fallen close to the lower channel boundary last week, there is a potential for a change of trend on the horizon. Recent analysis suggested a bottom around $24.45. The elephant in the room is that Elliott Wave suggests price could fall down out of the channel and make significantly lower prices. Personally, I can't see why that would happen to our largest gold producer and my money would be on prices moving up in the near future - but I wouldn't be buying on the hunch they 'might' rise - I'd need to see a confirmed move up.

The July analysis below suggested price would fall back to the lower boundary of the shaded price channel. It fell trough that level and could be headed for the lower boundary of the long-term price channel (blue dashed lines). That fall could have some uptick along the way as the fall is likely to be a 3 wave decline (2 down separated by 1 up wave). There is support at $28 but lower prices for another 2 weeks will see NCM in a technical weekly downtrend.

NCM was sold this week for a 6.6% profit.  Price had been rising strongly in a price channel since the March low and made a resistance break pattern at $32.53 with a target of $37. The target was just below the upper boundary of a long-term price channel that has been in force for 7 years (blue dashed line). I felt the resistance of the target level and the long-term channel boundary would stop price and I exited at $36.62 as price started to fall back. Price could now be expected to retrace back to the lower boundary of the green shaded price channel.
