I bought 500 shares of TRA at $53.12.Setup: A combo platter of a breakout and trend-pullback and entering within a forming high and tight flag. I expect a continuation of the trend. Great volume pattern and RSI and stochastics confirm price highs. The stock is under accumulated here.Risk: My intial target is the recent high... Continue Reading →
MTL at Support
I still like MTL here. The stock has not broke support and down volume has been lighter than previous up volume. The 50 day moving average has been a good entry point.
What to do about steel and energy stocks
Those that have missed out on the steel and energy run are in a frustrating position. There is the fear of being left out as the stocks continue to run. However, there is also the fear of "chasing" an overbought stock that's ready for reversal. Which "fear" should you listen to?I'm listening to the latter.... Continue Reading →
5 Profitable Energy Charts
Here are 5 interesting energy stocks. I've included longer term charts. Each has a slightly different pattern and can be played in multiple ways. RIG (Transocean, Inc.) is looking good right now.

Today’s Trades: NOV (and Steel comment)
I bought 300 shares of NOV at $114.35. Buying this stock on pullbacks has become a go to move for me, like Allen Iverson's crossover. This is one of those "keep doing it until it ceases to work" trades, akin to feeding a hot three point shooter. Okay, that's it with the NBA references .... Continue Reading →
