Cleveland Cliffs Aiming for Double Digits

Elliottwave Forecast  |

Cleveland Cliffs CLF is an American mining company that specializes in Iron Ore. With the demand for construction steel soaring around the world and specially in China, the price of Iron Ore continues to rise which makes big miners such as CLF, BHP, Rio Tinto and Vale a major beneficiaries thanks to the high-grades of the ore in their mines.

Since 2016, CLF made few attempts to close the year above $10 handle and it failed every time despite reaching $12 - $13 area. Will 2019 be any different from the previous 3 years ?

Looking at the weekly chart, we can count 5 swings to the upside which ended around the 61.8 fib ext area $12.44 - $14.07 and produced the 6th swing correction during last year. We consider it as an incomplete bullish sequence as long as the pivot at $5.56 low remains intact. We use our proprietary pivot system to tell us when a cycle has ended and when we need to switch to a different degree. Therefore, as both price and pivot are holding $5.56 then the sequence is suggesting a bullish path toward 100% fib ext area $16.70 - $19.34.
