A Bullish Lithium Stocks Forecast For 2021

lithium mining stocks

Lithium stocks had an amazing close of the year (20 20). No surprise, there has to be a correlation between the electric vehicle trend and the inputs into the market, lithium batteries being one of them. It is rather clear from the charts that lithium stocks will perform well in 2021. We have a bullish lithium stocks forecast for 2021. No coincidence, our rare earth metal stocks forecast for 2021 is also bullish. We add this as another bullish 2021 forecast in our series of global market forecasts.

We will keep this article short and chart focused. We look at the lithium price chart and the LIT ETF lithium stocks charts, both on a longer timeframe.

Our foucs is on lithium miners that deliver inputs for batteries in the electric vehicle space.

Interestingly, lithium stocks performed well despite a rather low lithium price. Clearly, momentum in lithium stocks was caused by the electric vehicles trend.

The lithium price looks to be in a major basing phase now, and it looks like it is coming out of this base. This implies that there is more upside than downside potential in the lithium price.

Is this the next driver for lithium stocks, next to the electric vehicle trend?

Imagine what will happen with lithium miners once the lithium price doubles, as the trend looks to have started recently and the price has some 80% upside potential until it hits a first resistance area (80000).

There is some fundamental research that underpins higher lithium prices in 2021 (source) but our followers know by now that we don’t look into fundamentals. We stick to the chart and price action, without technical indicators, which results in ‘price combined with price’ as our mantra.

Commodity research find Roskill has a very bullish view on a secular lithium trend driven primarily by rechargeable batteries (source):

In any case, the underlying demand growth for lithium compounds remains strong, with demand from rechargeable battery applications forecast to exceed 220kt LCE in 2020, representing roughly 70% of total lithium demand.
