Cameco Corp. declined from $44.28 to $17.61 in 2011 (A-B) and then settled in a large horizontal trading range mostly between $18 and $24 for almost two years (dashed lines). Recent price action signalled the breakout from this range and the start of a new major up-leg (C). Cameco is currently somewhat over-bought and may pull back toward $23-$23.50, but only a sustained decline below about $21 would be negative.

Point & Figure measurements provide an initial target of $29 (a 20-per-cent appreciation potential from current levels). The large trading range (dashed lines) supports higher targets.
