Shares of Orosur Mining Inc (LON: OMI) are down 50% from their February highs amid a lack of significant news from the gold mining and exploration company with operations in South America.

The company’s shares have fallen drastically and are trading at a critical support level that could trigger a rally if it holds. However, the miner’s share price does not appear ready to reverse course and head higher at this time.

The chart below indicates that the bears are still in control of Orosur Mining’s share price, given that several bearish candles quickly follow each bullish candle. However, it is still too early to predict where exactly the stock price is headed.

The last major announcement from Orosur Mining was about its Anza project in Colombia, where initial assay results following drilling works at the site were promising. Still, full results were expected to delay due to staff shortages driven by the coronavirus pandemic.

Traders would be best served to wait to see which direction the company’s shares will take as a decisive break below the resistance level could indicate the downtrend’s extension. In contrast, a bounce off the level would indicate a new rally.

Orosur Mining shares might also trade sideways for a while as investors take a break before deciding which direction they think the shares should go.

Either way, adopting a wait and see approach is the best course of action here until we get a clear picture of where the company’s share price might be heading.
