Haha, it's as if penny stocks move inverse of the market.  LBAS up to $1.03 now and the market still going down so SRTY is at 26.5 again (will see if we can break today's resistance).

New lows on the NASDAQ and Russell today (expect DOW will probably follow soon).  Going to hold SRTY for tomorrow as I expect we might continue down more.

Planning to sell off SRTY tomorrow morning and then buy into URTY depending how/if we sell off.

MACD (both 30 min and daily) is about to cross on the DOW, NASDAQ, and Russell, but they haven't *actually* crossed yet so I'm going to wait for that.

Back into LBAS at .96 on STO and MACD cross; same amount I had earlier but obviously lower price point.

Market is also down so yay for me on SRTY. Tongue  MACD 30min looks bad (good for me) on the Russell and DOW, but they're about to cross up on daily, so I'll probably get out soon.  I'm guessing the market might trend a little lower before heading up again in the next couple days but we'll see.

$1 just now broken on LBAS - hopefully someone read my post for $.96 and got in too... if not I don't think it's too late yet (but don't buy >$1.10).

MMTC also creeping up.  Hoping for a pullback to $.0080; otherwise I'll pass (or maybe I'll bite.. but I'm in LBAS and SRTY already so..)

Bah got out at open - market dropped overall today.  Watching for a bit.  If the DOW bounces back up over 11.4k, I might buy a short ETF (either SQQQ or SRTY for highest leverage).  Need to confirm we are back in a multi-day downtrend and not just a brief pullback.

SQQQ

SRTY

Bought some of SRTY (seems highest %) when DOW was about 11.4k.  Not expecting anything drastic in the next few days but just a small pullback from the recent rally.  More or less I'm trying it out because it's just my first time buying an ETF. Tongue

Bah, missed it - MMTC hit $.018 again from $.012 <_<

Took a small position in LBAS instead.  $1 clearly broken and it seems to finally be running (as opposed to just steadily increasing).

Watching MMTC for re-entry.  It pulled back just as expected. Grin Hoping it dips to .012 without dying though...

$.0194 resistance now - Sold half and seeing with the rest if MMTC can get to $.030.

Forgot to post this one yesterday... would have been a nice 50% sorry
UNVC - $.0040 (yesterday at .0020)
UNVC

Some others I'm keeping tabs on:
LBAS at $.82 (for pullback)
LBAS

RVNG at $.020 (very thin, moves a lot w/ few trades)

Out the rest of MMTC at $.016 - can't watch this tomorrow morning because of finals. <_<
Going to keep it on watchlist though to get back in when it goes back to the daily support (tomorrow or next week).

Second run on MMTC.  50% gain again and still moving up. Grin  I think it's forming a solid multi-day pattern as well (step-like):

Also LBAS is still moving up steadily (Sara would be up 70% right now but I don't know if she actually bought it) - great pick and good job.

Market is also still going down about 3% a day so buying SDOW or SQQQ would be an easy way to make 3x the amount the market goes down - for those who'd rather not buy actual stocks.

Chart I'm following for MMTC.  If it breaks that 12-13 resistance, that'll be awesome.  If not, we have the multi-day support line now so it's likely to try again later.

Get in near today's support line if you can.

A lot of stocks running this morning...  In particular:

MMTC at $.0048 - thought this was too high so many times last week
MMTC

BIEL at $.014 - passed last week due to low volume
BIEL

Took a position in MMTC at $.0087 because the volume is very good.  It's also following an upward trend in the 1-day chart, so I'm going to ride it up to about 12-ish and I'll be content, just sell. Tongue

Also keeping an eye on GPLS.  The chart looks new so it can start a nice uptrend if volume comes in.

GPLS at $.30

Watching MMTC at .011 - failed break 2 times.  A third would be very bad.

Market is down 500 pts (DOW).  I totally forgot I could have shorted indices via buying short ETFs. -___- Should have bought these leading into the debt ceiling crisis:

Making a quick trade on RCYT.  It's pretty much got the best momentum of any stock today but it's too vertical to be worth holding long.

RCYT at $.050

Sigh, no gap up.  Back out at .111 - guess you can't expect too much 2 days before the debt default.

Picked up a moderate amount of LVLT at $2.16 after seeing someone buy 5.5M shares in one trade.  Stock is also at a bottom so I'll get out for a small up even if it doesn't run.  Main problem right now is the stock is in a down trend from its $2.60 top.

Market down 200 points in general today.  ABAT didn't go where I expected so I'm just watching for one more day before pulling out for a small loss.

Back in more heavily on my longterm pick RYUN. XD
It bounced back from 1.90 yesterday creating a long reversal candle and today is already back above 2.40

Sara found this stock earlier today.  Very nice chart pattern that seems to be building up (as opposed to spiking up sharply and preparing to die a spiraling death like the ones I usually post Tongue ).

LBAS at $.47

Meanwhile I found this one that will spike for sure tomorrow but will probably die a spiraling death afterwards (for those who want to get in quickly and get out with a quick 10-20%).

MGRND gradually creeping up today and yesterday.  Got in with a modest position at $.007.  Going to see if it can break $.010, followed by $.015 after that, with "support" being the 30-min SMA line.  Watching closely because the volume is pretty thin.
