Atalaya Mining (ATYM) has been a favourite of mine for a few years now, but seems to be one of those shares which you rarely see mentioned on social media and the bulletin boards. It was formerly EMED. Ring a bell?
Over the past couple of months it has generally been a good idea to avoid resource stocks unless you’re either buying for the long term or are happy to try and trade high volatility, but one metal that is showing signs of strength is copper.
Copper has remained volatile in recent weeks, but is still showing far more strength than we’ve seen in the last couple of years, and I think the upward trend will continue. There are still some concerns about a potential drop in demand, but at the same time we’re not seeing many new copper projects reaching production and I can see further shortages in supply going forwards, barring a worldwide economic meltdown.
