Now the charts say Sirius Minerals can double

Sirius Minerals (LSE:SXX)

As train wrecks go, this isn't proving too chaotic. Our last update on Sirius (SXX) was tentative, painting 35p as an upward target - one which was thankfully achieved. However, in the period since the price has displayed a degree of hysterics, none of which are particularly alarming.

The current situation sounds a little dire as we're forced to mention that weakness below 25p shall now anticipate 21.5p and a probable bounce of sorts.

As the chart shows, there's a couple of potential uptrends and this drop target doesn't actually threaten them, leaving us fairly relaxed.

More likely appears growth above the blue line on the chart driving the share to 35.5p initially. Given this creates a "higher high" than previously, and also betters the blue downtrend, above such a point looks capable of generating 42.75p as a secondary.

The secondary of 42.75p is really rather important as closure above this level tends to make it difficult to stop our software reporting a further 64p sometime in the future.

Hopefully, the company continues feeding coins into the "good news" box!
