Shares of Bushveld Minerals Limited (LON: BMN) are stuck in a sideways trading range since early February after falling from their January highs. When will the shares break out?

The Vanadium mining company said that it was on track to mine more vanadium quantities this year than last year, with the majority of the increased production happening in H1 2021.

The rising global vanadium prices should also favour the company, yet its shares are still stuck in a wide range, which indicates that the shares are forming a balancing zone.

From a technical standpoint, a balancing zone usually indicates that the current trend might be about to change, or it could continue.

Therefore, in the Bushveld Minerals case, the structure indicates that the miner’s shares could break out and start another rally phase, but only time will tell.

Despite the trusted accuracy of technical analysis, the market conditions behind any two similar patterns are never the same, mainly because the market participants constantly change.

Hence, no two similar chart patterns will unfold similarly on two separate occasions. We could easily see the price break out at the lower end of the range and head lower, extending the current bearish trend.

Bushveld shares are currently trading in the middle of the range; hence, it is difficult to predict whether they will break out to the upside or downside. A solid fundamental trigger could push the shares higher or lower, depending on whether it is a positive or negative development.
