SIRIUS MINERALS (LSE:SXX) Our prior Sirius outlook (link here) expressed some doubts, verging on hysteria, that Sirius actually CLOSE a session above 31p to permit confidence for the future.  It certainly managed the lame move from 23 to our initial 26p target without much drama but aside from providing a textbook case of "this is why we give two targets" by reversing from 26p, the share price has since managed similar integrity to Mrs May's firm policy statements - temporary at best!

In theory, movements now above just 29p should provoke 31p near term with secondary, if bettered, at 35p.

Unfortunately, once again we're still demanding the share actually close above 31p and for a change, we'll explain the logic. Circled on the chart is a manipulation gap in price movements at 37p. When the share price was forced downward, it created a set of circumstances which insist the price now needs actually CLOSE a session above 31p to exhaust price movements since it was opened at 30p on November 2nd last year. By actually CLOSING above 31p, we're able to factor in forces from the period when the share was trading up to 51p with these able to impart oomph for some quite strong growth, hence our longer term pencil marks at 47 and beyond.

Our worry currently is the lack of commitment being given toward 31p but to be realistic, the share price needs drill below 24p to justify any real concern at the lack of growth. This scenario looks capable of triggering an initial 22p with secondary 17p and the suggestion of a bonk against the long term uptrend.

For now, we're probably being silly as exquisite care was taken recently to cover manipulation gaps created from 27.25p so it's probably just a matter of patience. And crossed fingers...

SUCCESS above means both FAST & SLOW targets were met. 'CESS means just the FAST target met and probably the next time it is exceeded, movement to the SLOW target shall commence.

Please remember, all prices are mid-price (halfway between the Buy and Sell). When we refer to a price CLOSING above a specific level, we are viewing the point where we can regard a trend as changing. Otherwise, we are simply speculating on near term trading targets. Our website is

UPDATE. We often give an initial and a secondary price. If the initial is exceeded, we still expect it to fall back but the next time the initial is bettered, the price should continue to the secondary. The converse it true with price drops.
