Silver Standard Resources Limited in the Frame

SSRI Chart 05 oct 09.JPG

Taking a quick look at the above chart we can see that Silver Standard Resources Limited (SSRI) could go a little lower without breaking the support line however we would like to see it break out of this wedge and head north and surpass its recent high of around the $25.00 mark. The technicals are fairly neutral at the moment but they are heading lower and could signal a buying opportunity shortly.

For a short term trade to be successful we need to see a really good aberration either way, whether overbought or oversold. SSRI has recently been languishing in the overbought zone but now it is pulling back and we need to keep a close eye on it to see if the pendulum will swing further into the oversold zone and thus present us with a buying opportunity. When the time is right we will probably take a swipe at a few Call Options.

Below is a snapshot of the Call Options for SSRI whose share price closed at $19.55 on Friday. We have shown the December 2009 series where we have highlighted the “out of the money” Calls with a strike price of $20.00 and $21.00. We can pay a higher premium for the Calls that are “on the money” and should SSRI move up they would gain almost dollar for dollar. However the out of the money Calls are cheaper to buy which reflects the additional risk that they carry.

This not a signal to buy but a heads up about what we are thinking about doing when the time is right. We will observe for now and let know you when we think the time is ripe to move on this one.

Have a good one.

Just as we were hoping for SSRI to go a little lower it puts on 4.3% today - thats life!

I've been reading the Silver Price Newsletter for a while now and like what you write, and your technical analysis. Read about SSRI today, studied the charts, and decided to buy the Dec 21 Call. Purchase was made at $2. I may be just a little early, but I believe the upside potential is worth the risk. Now to see what happens.

Appreciate the write-up today on SSRI...
