Trade: HDNG

I bought 500 shares of HDNG at $38.25. It's a low float stock that showed up on my "trend pullback scan" last week, which placed it at the top of my primary watchlist. The stock printed a tail at support on Friday with a strong close, so I placed a mental buy stop today above... Continue Reading →

Trade: NILE

I sold 200 shares of NILE at $60.50 for a $410 gain (+3.5%). I am still holding the remaining 200 shares from yesterday's trade, and have moved my stop to the entry point ($58.45). This locks in my current $410 gain, while "letting the rest ride".

Today’s Trade: TMX

I bought 400 shares of TMX at $40.88. It has been on my watchlist since May 20th. Mexican stocks have been on a tear, and I'm using the consolidation after the latest breakout as a jumping point. Any thoughts on this trade? Was the last breakout a continuation or exhaustion breakout? Only time will tell.... Continue Reading →

Chart: CCJ

Way back in December, I had highlighted CCJ as a Uranium play on a breakout over $42. While I missed out on that trade, I entered today at $50.10, as it recovered from yesterday's dip. Anybody care to analyze this trade?
