Another stock that looks ready to trigger a powerful breakout trade is
, which is engaged in the acquisition, exploration, and development of precious metal properties and the production and marketing of minerals. Claude's mineral properties are located in northern Saskatchewan and northwestern Ontario. This stock has been crushed by the sellers so far this year, with shares off by over 45%.
If you take a look at the chart for Claude Resources, you'll see that this stock has been trading range bound for the past four months, between 56 cents to 57 cents on the downside and 76 cents on the upside. That chart pattern has so far marked a triple bottom for CGR off of 56 cents per share. Now CGR is starting to recapture its 50-day moving average of 64 cents per share with decent volume. That move is quickly pushing CGR within range of triggering a major breakout trade.

Market players should now look for long-biased traders in CGR if this stock can manage to trigger a breakout trade above some near-term overhead resistance levels at 73 cents to 76 cents per share with high volume. Look for a sustained move or close above those levels with volume that registers near or above its three-month average action of 296,069 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then CGR could explode to the upside and possibly hit its next major overhead resistance levels at 90 cents to $1.20 a share.
One can look to buy CGR off any weakness and anticipate that breakout, and simply use a stop that sits near its 50-day moving average of 64 cents per share. Or you could just buy off strength once CGR clears 73 cents to 76 cents per share with high volume, and then simply use a stop somewhere around 67 cents per share. I would add to either position once CGR closes above 76 cents per share with heavy volume.
