Galantas shares are up 50% in a month. Independent analyst Alistair Strang studies the charts for clues that it can make this rally stick.
Northern Ireland gold producer Galantas Gold (LSE:GAL) appears to be enjoying the favour of the markets currently. The share price, cheerfully ignoring the current hiatus which seems to be infecting gold values, recently enjoyed a series of fairly positive sessions, making us wonder if something is brewing for the future.
Historically, Galantas' share price suffered from enhanced speculation for the future, but now the company is actually mining underground, boasting of a 2km underground development.
Hopefully, future price movements shall be based on production numbers, rather than ‘enhanced speculation’ among internet chatrooms.

A visit to the corporate website proved suitably impressive, a large mining area very reminiscent visually of operations shown on telly’s ‘Gold Rush’ documentary series, one of our guilty secrets every Friday evening on the Discovery Channel. Hopefully the mine doesn’t have extreme weather of Alaska and Canada.
Presently, trading around 34p, it appears the share need only exceed 35.5p to suggest some happy days ahead.
Share price movements since the 10:1 split last year generally prove quite reliable, and the situation now appears to be of movement above 35.5p being capable of triggering some strong movement to an initial 49p. Secondary, if exceeded, works out at a longer term 63p.

These are obviously fairly large jumps but appear to be made possible by the strength of historical declines, each time the share reached an unsustainable high. However, we would prefer the price to actually close a session above the Blue downtrend on the chart, just to make ongoing upward travel difficult to derail.
For panic to raise its ugly head, the share price currently would need to slump below the red line on the chart as the reversal consequences look pretty extreme.
