Current chart image of this stock

In the daily chart shown, the clear downward trend is plotted in blue. Since mid-December, the prices have recovered once again, and have pushed through the SMA200 line in the last few days. It now remains to be seen whether the prices can remain above the SMA or whether signals will form in the subordinate hourly chart, shown here in orange. As long as the high at 53 USD is not clearly broken, the stock is in a downward trend.

In any case, with this stock, one should take the gold market into account, which we will look at in more detail now:

Since AEM operates gold mines, before making an entry into the stock, it is essential to consider the gold price. Here in image 2, the price development is very similar to the chart image of our stock. When we observe the gold price more closely, it is apparent that a small upward trend has formed in the last few days. Only when this turns around, as has been drawn in, do the probabilities for our short scenario in the AEM become even higher.
