After an explosive start to 2016, Lithium stocks spent the back half of last year consolidating gains.  Going into 2017, it appears Lithium stocks are once again poised to energize portfolios.  Below is a technical view of the Global X Lithium ETF $LIT:

 As can be seen in the weekly chart above, price spiked above the multi-year downtrend (blue-dotted line) in June 2016.  Price then began to consolidate gains as it retraced to test support at the multi-year trend line before advancing higher and completing the right shoulder of an inverse head-and-shoulder bottom formation (purple). In recent weeks, shares broke above the neckline of the inverse head-and-shoulder formation. The volume advance this week confirms the breakout and targets a move to $33.
