SQM: Chilean Lithium Stock Nears Triple Digits

NYSE:SQM   Sociedad Quimica y Minera S.A.
Sociedad Quimica y Minera is a Chilean fertilizer company reinventing itself as a lithium provider. Today we’re looking at some potentially bullish patterns as it squeezes back toward triple digits.

First are the pair of strong earnings reports on March 2 and May 19. The initial headline lifted SQM above its previous all-time high from July 2011. The second one helped propel the stock past $100, where it stalled and pulled back in June.

However it didn’t pull back much. Price stabilized near the 100-day simple moving average (SMA) in mid-July and returned above $99. It then took a small breather, which was quickly met with buyers stepping in to defend the 50-day SMA.

Next you have the trendline along the May peak and the recent highs. SQM is currently challenging that resistance.

Finally, the 8-day exponential moving average (EMA) has remained above the 21-day EMA since late July. That, plus the rising MACD, may suggest the shorter-term trend is turning more bullish.
