Trend indicators on the weekly timeframe look up. The last correctional wave at the end of February was caused by the news about the flooding of Norilsk Nickel mines. Due to the incident, the production plan for 2021 was reduced. However, the successful completion of the second phase of rebuilding work at the end of March and the confirmation of the production plan provoked a rebound. At the moment, the negative driver is largely already included in the prices.
In the first half of April, Norilsk Nickel announced that work at the Oktyabrsky mine had resumed. This became a positive driver for quotes. Thus, the risks of disruption of the terms of restoration of works were greatly minimized. In addition, the company announced the launch of a $ 2 billion buyback. The buyback factor may support Norilsk Nickel shares until mid-June.
On the positive news, the upper limit of consolidation was broken since the end of February – 24,500 rubles. With its breakdown, the technical picture improved, and a month later the first target of growth by 27,000 rubles. has been achieved. After that, consolidation, which is classic for the growing trend of Norilsk Nickel, began. The exit from it most often occurs upwards, now this option is also the most probable.
