Sorry last two picks only watched because they failed that breakout check. Tongue

Just got into PIP though. Volume is very heavy and it got listing compliance yesterday.  There's a report that it may run from $2 to $20, but I'd be happy with just $3.

PIP at $2.60

It already went past $3. XD I think I'll hold for a bit and use that as stop loss.

CYCA kind of slow today but I'll wait until Monday to see if it does anything.

Found VIDA though.  It just received two production contracts.  The volume looks good, but I'm going to watch that it doesn't go below .09 first.

Couldn't find anything to buy today, but I'm watching this one for coming weeks.  Bollinger bands are coming in sharply, STO and MACD are near crossing.  The bands haven't pinched all the way yet, so I'm still waiting before I decide whether to buy in.

Got in a bit high though, should just buy at ask next time instead trying to get it cheaper at bid.

Broke even with CHIO but I got out of ANO at $1.28 (28%). Grin It looks like a genuine breakout though (high volume and above 200-day SMA), so I might be looking to buy back in when it's less overbought.  It might just fly past my sell point now though, since that's been the pattern with my trades lately. <_<

Announcement of possible merger:
http://finance.yahoo.com/news/China-INSOnline-Corp-Entered-iw-2064498280.html?x=0&.v=1

I couldn't find any information on the company supposedly buying up CHIO shares though, so I'm going to watch it a bit more first before buying.

A huge block of 2.7M traded this morning in one go (the avg volume for a *day* is normally only about 100k).  Price remained relatively still after that one jump though so I'm waiting to see if it picks up again or pulls some.

0.01 now (in at .008). Cheesy

Watching what happens at close though because if it doesn't move up more, it'd risk being a doji or at least spinning top (reversal).

Like the upward trend over the last few days on this one, but would like to see a bit more volume.

Took a moderate position in this one and will be watching a bit closely if it breaks the trend.

Sold half at .079 and letting the other half sit through .09 right now.  First time not selling everything completely but it's nice not to watch it run higher than I sold for now. Smiley

Almost sold today but I might see how it reacts to this news released after hours:

Sunvalley Solar, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board:SSOL.ob - News), a leading solar power technology and solar system integration company, today announces its revenue outlook for 2010 and 2011.

For 2010, Sunvalley Solar forecasts revenue in the range of $5.5 million to $6.0 million. That would be an increase of 25% to 36% over 2009's net sales of $4.4 million, reflecting the continued strong demand for their solar power solutions.

For 2011, Sunvalley Solar anticipates revenue in the range of $8.0 million to $10.0 million. That would be an increase of 39% to 73% over the midpoint guidance forecast for 2010. The increase is attributed to recently announced commercial solar installation contracts as well as a strong sales pipeline.

Got into this one early morning.  It has a light float and moves easily on low volume.  Also has relatively no history like my last stock, so I don't plan to stay too long.  I might leave a small position this time though incase it goes much higher.

DGMA at .006

Was watching this one this morning - it only recently started picking up a lot of activity and hasn't really had much of a history so it's hard to judge resistence levels.

The buildup in volume was very good all day though, so I went ahead and got a small position at .06 - rather high for me but I don't expect to stay in for more than a day.  It pretty much closed at height of day, so I'm expecting decent gap up tomorrow.

HELI at .0659
HELI

If you haven't been able to tell already, I've been trying to just get out most of the trades with modest gains.  Tongue

Some others I'm watching:

QASP at .0042 - pinchplay I think so it'll probably start dropping soon
QASP

DVAX at $1.79 - large buys last couple days, might bounce.. waiting on more volume to confirm.
DVAX

EDWY at $.003 - some large buys also coming in as well.. waiting on more volume to see if anything happens.
EDWY

Caught this earlier on screener.  Bought in at .008 and accidentally left the sell limit at .009; didn't think it would hit that quickly but it's going for .010 now.

APTD at .009

The volume looks good for a continued run, but unfortunately my funds are unsettled. -_-

Can't buy anything for two days so I'll just be waiting for a pullback on ATWT.

Out at $1.94.  I feel like I played it perfectly this time (as in the stock went exactly to each buy/sell point I wanted it to), but the chart is pretty strong as well.  Maybe it'll explode the day after I sell out. <_<

Even if it closes high though, it risks forming a bearish candle (long tail), so I'm quite happy with what I've got.  Definitely watching this to buy on pullback later though.

Bought this stock after its initial run about a week ago at $1.50.  It's been climbing nicely so far.

EFOI

The history of it shows some significant resistence in the $1.84 area, but if it breaks that, the next area would be $2.40-ish.  It closed near height of day today so I'll be watching it Monday to see whether to sell. Grin

The stocks in the previous post are mainly on my watchlist for longterm plays, unless some really bad news comes out for them.

The ones I'm currently playing are ENTI and SSWC, which have risen and fallen by large percentages in the past couple months:

ENTI I got back in around .003 after exiting at .010.  I'm currently watching that it breaks .006 before considering holding until .010 again.
ENTI

SSWC just bottomed out last week so I'm watching for more volume before I decide to jump in.
SSWC

Also watching AUTH. If it breaks the $3.80 barrier, its next resistence is $8.00.  Its share price dropped from $8 to under $4 in 2008 and hasn't recovered yet.
AUTH at $3.15
AUTH

News is that the company regained a key customer (not announced yet).  The reason it dropped from $8 to under $4 in 2008 was because it lost HP.
http://www.reuters.com/article/idCNSGE64C0KN20100513?rpc=44


RPC just got an estimate for $4 share price, $8 if FDA approved, but it was only at $1 today (ran to $1.40 so far).
RPC at $1.40

ENTI at $.01 now - announcement coming this Friday (14th) in prep for its June 1 launchdate.  Watching more carefully now because $.01 has major resistence in the past year or so.  The next would be $.024

Into ENTI at $.007 (I should have just stayed in. Tongue )

Stopped out of POSC.  Hope you got out as well Asee.  Wasn't too happy with the stock being low on volume already + breaking support trendlines so the bad news (no partnership mentioned yet, more delay) was kind of expected.

I'm watching for entry on ENTI again or IHSN.

Gah #2... EVXA now at .0016 (+100%).  Oh well.

ENTI now at $.0065, so I'm happy with that. Tongue (was in since $.002).  Am considering selling at $.007, depending on how strong the run gets.

I'm expecting either POSC or ENTI to dip to the trendline today (POSC for $.185, ENTI to $.0028).  Funds finally settled but I can't decide which I want to go into. Tongue ENTI seems to have much better range of fluctuation though and more volume, but the POSC event is upcoming Wednesday.  Hmm..

Was already in ENTI at $.002 but it was a very small position.

Gah... was considering this one at $.004 this morning when it already ran 100%.  Now it's at $.0078 (200%).

EVXA at $.0078
EVXA

I think I'm going to fill up on POSC for next week.  ENTI didn't really dip at all, so I'll have to make due with the small position I already have in it.

POSC (in at $.205): It closed right on my bid at the end of the day; either I'm getting better at trendlines or I'm buying in too high. Tongue
POSC

ENTI (in since $.002): Up 100% already but it looks good for an even stronger run past $.005 next week.  Only have a tiny amount in the stock though; was really hoping for a pullback to buy more under $.003 but it didn't happen. Sad
ENTI
