Got back into NEOM at $.10 with remaining funds.  Might come back to bite me but the volume on this one just keeps increasing...

NEOM

Edit: Out of NEOM at $.15 after its RSI failed to pass 70 on the last up. Smiley Might put back a smaller amount toward of end of day if it picks up again.  Otherwise, all my funds are unsettled now (have to wait 2 days). Sad

Caught BICB on screener a few minutes ago.  Large volume spike and thin Level 2 ask, but it hasn't moved too much yet.  Took a small position just to see how easily it might move up.

BICB at .048

SFIO starting to run up again.  Missed my chance to buy near .04 - going to wait a bit and see if it gets closer there towards end of day (it's at .048 right now) but if not, I'll buy in a little high and save some to buy more tomorrow if it dips.

Just for fun, this one went up 300% today (too high, don't buy now).  Can't believe I went to get breakfast when the first volume spike started. -_-

NEOM from $.02 to $.06

Bah, SFIO dipped way too quickly back down to .055 - going to wait until it stabilizes before considering re-entry.  Probably going to wait until at least the 30-min STO crosses Tongue (new rule of thumb)

LVLT opened above $2, confirming breakout.  Got in at open near $2.06 but will average down if it comes closer to $2.
LVLT

Also got in OPMG at open but it has trouble staying up there, so if it doesn't move up soon, I'll sell for breakeven.

Ok OPMG was a dud - got out of that one.

Currently watching MRNA and CBIS at end of day.  MRNA has the better chart but CBIS just had news relating its work to treating cancer.  Might just get a small position in both to average out... we'll see.

Yeah, just got a moderate position in MRNA.  CBIS just died despite the news.  Buy only based on charts then. Tongue

SFIO at .061 vs .065 in premarket Level 2 right now. It's going to gap up for sure. Smiley (start at a significantly higher price than closed on Friday)

If anyone's online right now, they should buy it immediately at .055 while they still can... but I doubt anyone is on. -_- Sigh

Resistance is at .07 so if it has trouble getting past that, I'm out.

And, there it goes... .066, .067, .070  - easy 30% for whoever would have bought it a few minutes ago, if anyone. -_-

Out of SFIO at .064 (broke intraday trendline); might get back in if it comes down to the .055-.060 range without breaking its uptrend.

Completely failed at trying to buy OPMG on pullback at $.049 this afternoon though, but it's currently on a breakout past $.045.  Going to buy in tomorrow morning if it continues upward (no selloff).

Recent news for SFIO:
http://biz.yahoo.com/iw/110520/0759138.html

Halfed my position today but will buy back in depending on how SFIO reacts Monday morning.  It has to clear the $.055 range or it risks coming back down to $.04s.

Haven't found anything better than the stocks I posted Friday so far.  For me personally, I'm going to just hold onto SFIO and FBCD.  I kept selling them earlier and then ending up buying back higher so I'll just hold until the chart breaks this time.

If you guys find anything better, please let me know.  As a reminder, resources on how to find stocks:

SFIO just crashed 50% and then came back up even higher.  Would have been an awesome chance to double up if I had more funds.  Any ideas when I should get out? Tongue

Probably going to hold SFIO until Monday since it's still doing well.

Some others that just broke out today (read: you can buy now or early Monday):

FBCD at $.075
FBCD

BCCI at $.58 (more of a continuation)
BCCI

BOCL at $.0085
BOCL

Watching:
LVLT - once it's done pulling back, it can go much higher.

Hm SFIO now at $.042+ so I guess it's okay.  Basically am now $.042/.016 > 100% gain. Smiley

Same w/ JCOF though - it was just so spot-on and good for late entry (slow ppl to buy). -_- (sigh)

Someone *just* bought 10M shares of WRIT at $.064 all in one trade.  That's basically more than the avg daily volume in the past year.

Following in just to see what happens. Tongue

Some others.

SFIO - $.016 (in this one mainly), very nice intraday chart; clear stair-like pattern.
SFIO

FBCD - $.067
FBCD

JCOF (again) - $.27; coffee stocks are up in general and this one is a bit of a lagger so it can be a "safer" pick if you want something that hasn't gone up that much already.

Another huge buy just went through for WRIT - this time at 15M.  Weird - that's basically dumping almost $1 million into this stock.

Was going to short JBII on the premise that its news release was misleading, but I forgot I can't short OTC/PK stocks. It *is* going down from yesterday though on huge selloffs.

BCCI is on a run currently.  Was one of the couple coffee stocks also running last week (I was in JCOF at the time).  Sadly I don't have any settled funds in it due to just finishing buying DRL. -_-

Goes to show what can happen if I just kept my mornings free and had a margin account (to skip waiting 2 days between trades).  Sigh - one day I guess.

On per request, I'll start posting a few less risky stocks I find.  I'm currently looking at the following:

DRL at $1.64 - Volume just looks good
DRL

DUSA at $5.50 - Oversold going into recent earnings announcement
DUSA

SYMX at $3.44 - Earnings coming on Tuesday
SYMX


Got a few more people trading now.  If you haven't started trading already, I hope you do so soon. Tongue

Am in JCOF from $.205 this morning.  Got out of RPC a while ago - that stock never picks up on its own momentum, so I need to stop considering it. ;D

Again, I encourage you guys to just pick a stock and put it in your portfolio at least.  It doesn't take more than a couple minutes, and then later when you want to do something more serious, you can put maybe an hour into looking things up:

I'm going to purposely stay in red there until more of you sign up - don't make me go below zero!  Angry

Currently into RPC at $.48 - good news came out today and the chart looks very clean (clear step-like pattern moving upwards).

Hope someone did nicely in ELTP there - would have been an easy 30%. Grin

Into BRZL at $.008 right now.  There's rumor of reverse merger but I'll probably won't hold it for that long.  There's some speculation that it'd get to $.02 but that's a little extreme I think.

*sigh* so few others investing.  Anyways, midterms are over so I have a little time to watch things again.  Currently holding SINX - up 40% so far this week. Grin

Here comes my swing back up past the 0% gain line again lol - going to keep hovering below and above that till more of you join in. <_<

So many stocks went up today. Grin

Here are a few to look at if you guys still haven't bought anything yet:
https://www.pftq.com/stock_sys/

SNWT at $.024 (I bought this one) - very large volume spike this morning
SNWT

AMOK at $.69 - room to move till $1 but might have hit resistence already... would see if it can get to $.75 first.
AMOK

These three have just finished pullbacks (reversing from short-term decline); they might not go up as high as the previous peaks unless the volume increases more.

TDCP at $.082, resistance at $.090 to break
TDCP

PRAN at $3.20, support at $3 to stay above
PRAN

Bought into ACTC a little bit high this morning:
ACTC

I don't expect the stock to stay up for very long though (look at the past spikes), so any sign of falling and I'll sell.

Also a reminder that you can trade virtually on my website now:

Just make sure you're logged in and then it works just like a real brokerage account.  Have fun. Smiley

It is restricted to stocks.  For pinksheets/OTC, you have to include the extension - such as CWRN.PK for pinksheets.

What stock are you trying to buy and what error?
