From the high of about $4.50 (A), Nevsun declined toward $1 (B) and then settled into a base building pattern in the form of an inverse-head-and-shoulder formation (dashed lines). A rise above such a pattern usually produces significantly higher targets. The recent move to $3.66 (C) took Nevsun above the descending trend line (dotted line), signalled a breakout from the bullish technical pattern and confirmed the start of a new major up-move. Only a sustained decline below about $2.50 would reverse the long-term positive status of this stock.

Point & Figure measurements provide an initial target of $4.50 (a 42-per-cent appreciation from current levels). The large inverse head-and-shoulder formation (dashed lines) supports higher targets.
