Here’s what AIM’s BMR Mining and Brexit have in common


Brexit and BMR Mining (BMR) have quite a bit in common. For instance, despite a lot of talk, the last few months have been punctuated by the production of absolutely nothing. Additionally, people tend to get bored with an absence of action. However…

BMR is approaching a trend we’re not sure exists. The dashing blue line on the chart below dates back to 2011, and we have not entirely figured out if the price is reacting to the imaginary line.

The immediate danger, though, is of weakness below 3p probably causing a plunge toward 2.35p.

This particular scenario stinks, as 2.35p would represent a new all-time low for BMR and, while a final plunge before tackling a major trend makes sense, we’d be extremely concerned should 2.35p break for any reason, as we cannot calculate below such a point.

On the basis our imaginary trend line proves to be the real deal, common sense along suggests any break above 4.5p during November should bring an initial 5.6p to the fore. Secondary, if (when) bettered, is a more optimistic sounding 7.1p.

If the share price opts to follow common sense, the visuals suggest any weakness which reaches 3p should bounce from the red line and then, it all becomes a matter of buying lucky charms in the hope a break above the dashing blue line provides some upward entertainment.
