The company Yellow Cake Ordinary Shares (LSE:YCA) provide investors with direct exposure to the uranium market, rather than the product itself. The share price is a reflection of this and when we reviewed them nearly a year ago, the price indeed increased and achieved both our target levels.

It’s now time to revisit the tea leaves and try and figure out what’s coming next. Our secondary target had been 655p, a number the company exceeded and also one which the share price has been fluttering above and below since meeting our secondary target level.

This sort of behaviour is generally quite positive as it carries an implicit suggestion that further movement is possible.

In the case of Yellow Cake, above 719p looks like the next trigger level, one which should prove capable of launching the share price to an initial 832p. Our longer-term secondary is now at 893p, a price level where we shall once again expect some turbulence in the future.

Obviously, we need give a converse argument, just in case this overdose of positive bias has coloured our interpretation of the numbers. Share price closure below 600p looks a touch dangerous, perhaps proving able to force reversal to 478p and hopefully, given the Red uptrend since 2020, a bounce.

Our secondary, should such a drop target break, calculates down at 407p and, visually, considerable hope for a price rebound as historically it appears the 400p level had some sort of meaning for the Uranium price for a few years.

It’s a bit of a quirky one but we suspect it's worth keeping an eye on.
