Bought into ENTI at $0.002 yesterday and watched it go to $.005. Cheesy

ENTI

It's supposed to be releasing a new product on June 1, so there is still time to get in on pullbacks.  I really wanted to sell yesterday and buy in later when it dips, but then I might not get back in (funds have to settle Tongue ).  I'll consider selling when my other positions close first, so I can buy in if it dips low enough.


POSC also ran back to $.20-$.23 range from $.15-ish.  I hope you managed to buy in as you've been waiting on that one for a long time.  My funds were tied up, but I guess I'll be happy with ENTI for now (maybe you want to buy that after you're done with POSC, which actually sounds like a good idea now that I think of it).

Sorry, short rant. Tongue CHCI running past $3.80 now, I got out wayyyy too early at $2.40. XD
CHCI

Also out of POSC at $.22 - got stopped out.  Looks like the merger news is being delayed. Undecided
POSC

I might go back in closer to the announcement.

New stocks I'm watching:
CSNT at $3.25 (bit high now so waiting for pullback but it has no resistence until $6)
CSNT

HNAB at $.32 (picked last week at $.26, waiting on pullback)
HNAB

CIGX at $1.98 (high volume + price up today but not sure if breakout yet)
CIGX

INSM at $1.17 (just broke upper resistence today, watching for run)
INSM

FBC at $.89 (rumors of some large companies buying into the stock)
FBC

I'm leaning closest to buying into FBC or INSM tomorrow after funds settle.

Yes, supposedly the news for the partnership/buyout is delayed to the event on May 5 for POSC.  I'm just not patient enough to wait, so I'll buy in again closer to that day. Tongue

If you are still in it though, I suggest you wait rather than sell for a loss.

Got my fill into POSC at $.211 now.  I'll be happy with any sell over $.25, but will see how things go after the news next week. Smiley
POSC at $.211
POSC

Short rant on CHCI though... it's running past $2.82 now when I only sold at $2.40.  I feel like I made the same mistake of selling early as I did on JOEZ. -_-
CHCI

Will definitely consider a small position if it dips back along the SMA.

Some others:

Very nice year-long chart and it's an AMEX stock.
BNX at $.68
BNX


Pullback finishing on a few older stocks picked this week:

ALAN at .36

POWN at .56
POWN

BBX at $2.80 - broke above the 200-day SMA now and has some huge bids showing up (250k orders).  Picked this one way back at $1.70 and am still in it, though I plan to start playing the rises/falls a bit now.

Out of CHCI - it ran to $2.4 so far; I'm happy with that. Smiley

Right now I'm trying to get into POSC at $.20 or lower though because there's now an announced date for the news of its merger (next week).

Some others I've added to watch today (making a habit of watching a stock a couple days before jumping in now):

AMFI has high volume and a chance of getting to $1.50, but it needs to break $.90 resistence first.
AMFI at $.89
AMFI

HEB has been creeping up slowly since it dropped.  It's almost a straight line of gradual increase, and it's also an AMEX stock.  Might be building for a breakout if given the volume.
HEB at $.80
HEB

HNAB ran over the last couple days but can go much higher toward the $.3-4 range if it breaks $.29.  Will be watching for that and hopefully getting a pullback as well.
HNAB at $.26

saw the news on POSC ...I was going post it up too. lol. Good thing I decided not to buy in last night when I looked at it.. took me a while to decide though..this time I'm going in on Friday...I'll make sure to use the buy-sell limit in case I forget like last time...hehehhe

It actually went higher towards the end of the day, so that might have been the reversal right there.  I bought about half my position at $.21 instead of $.2 (didn't look like it would get that low).  I'll watch if it dips lower to buy the rest of my position tomorrow, but if it starts to break out, I'm just going to fill up then.

BBX jumped to $2.60 today... on news of hosting a cancer awareness night? O_o Ah well, can't complain. Tongue

POSC is also at $.25 - that was an awesome pick - just hope you actually did buy it. Smiley


This is one I've bought into before back in January.  It's fairly popular (lots of news on it), so it's worth checking back on from time to time (too high to buy now though... unless you're willing to hold).
DEAR at $3

CHCI is running again today... watching for an exit point now. Smiley

Nice find, it does appear to be slowly building up for something (at least on the intraday):
ABK at $2:
ABK

The volume is slowing down a bit though, so I'd watch for that first.

You might want to look at POSC again.  It seems like it might drop back down to the .15-16 range.

There's rumor of a merger on that one: http://pennystockgurus.blogspot.com/2010/04/sswc-merger-on-horizon.html

There's no set date on the news though.  It's good that it dipped back down today.  I would not want to get in any higher than .0005, maybe .0004 if possible.


These are a few I have on my list for later.  Wouldn't buy in until I see them actually about to run, but they're in a good uptrend formation and following right above the SMA (good entry point).

POWN at .55

BBX at 2.20 (called it much earlier around 1.73 though)

Congrats on POSC - I hope you got in early enough. Grin

Also keeping an eye on this one - it's been hugging the moving average for a bit, might be building up for a run.

Good call on POSC.  Minimum on was on Thursday but it's definitely a good entry Friday as well. Smiley You can already see the "lows" getting a bit higher though - will be looking forward to Monday.

Got to finish with CHCI first though. Grin The level2 ask is very thin on this one and can run very easily, but I'll probably be happy with an out at $1.84 or something - still a pretty easy gain for having just bought in yesterday.

I'm back into CHCI at $1.74 - that was a very weird open, didn't expect it that low but I can't really complain. Tongue Kind of scary though, so I'm going to watch that it stays above $1.80, otherwise I'm out again (it's doing good so far at $1.88).

You were right about POSC; it'll probably bottom on Friday.  I'd watch for a reversal signal on the candle stick charts (doji, inverted hammer, or hammer would be best - see Major Patterns).  Edit: If you look at the chart now and it closes at least around .14, it will be a very good inverted hammer. Smiley
POSC

BBX is also running... I've been watching it since it bottomed at $1.70 about last week.  Just a very good formation along the 50day SMA.

Haha Danky (it sounds like Janky Tongue ).  It's too thin of a volume - same problem as CYNX.

TONE I actually bought before back in January to see if it would start going up, but it never did and I see it went down yet again.  I'd be cautious of that.  You can already see it has trouble getting above .55, so I would watch for a break on that first.  The volume is already going down though and the Slo Stochastic shows it is overbought (kind of like RSI but you watch for crossovers of the two lines as reversal signals).

Right now I'm playing CHCI.  The stock is moving very quickly this morning and very strong buys + volume. If you go back a couple years, you'll see the next upper resistence is at 2.50.  It might be a longterm hold for me on this one (meaning sell and buy back, not holding Tongue ).   This one's moving very fast right now, so I wouldn't mind buying a bit high into it.
CHCI at 1.79.
CHCI


Others I'm watching as well but not as fast moving:

Here's one I think is building up very nicely.  It has former resistence at .5 though, so I'd be careful to see if breaks that.  If it does though, it can go much higher (next resistence in .9 range).
SUF at .45 (a bit high right now though, would wait for .42-ish pullback).
SUF

AEZS at 1.36.  It has former resistence at 1.4 so I'm watching it breaks that.
AEZS

Nice find on POSC! I hope you bought in when you found it yesterday. Grin  The intraday chart looks especially nice:
POSC
There's rumors about a buyout for the company so I may take a position even if a bit high.

CYNX has little-to-no volume on the intraday chart so it'd be hard to buy/sell.
CYNX

I don't like BLUG though; it seemed to have just as much volume selling off as it did buying in, which usually isn't a very good sign.  It also has resistence coming soon at .4 and then .5 while having much more room to move down instead.

Here are a few non-OTC/PK stocks I've been following.  Generally don't have the patience to wait for these, but they're good for month or so hold (compared to the few days I usually hold my other stocks).

Been watching this one for a while since $1.80 as a slower uptrending stock, but it looks like it's finally getting some increase in volume (and moving upwards more quickly).  Would wait for pullback first though.
OCLR at 2.87
OCLR

This is also another one for slower plays, but it's been consistent and has a good chart.
WAVX at 3.70
WAVX


And EGHT finally moved up... I picked this out near $1.2 a couple months ago.  It took a while, but this is one of the longer holds as I said. Tongue I'd be careful around $1.50-60 though as it means it's broken its formation if it doesn't go past that.
EGHT at 1.45 (picked at 1.25-ish)

Can't believe I didn't bother to look into healthcare stocks since it's been in the news so much, but ah well. Maybe next time. Tongue

Found a few others I liked though... (as usual, I only do swing trades, few if any longterm holds)

POWN just hit a bottom at the trendline today and bounced up nicely.  It's forming up a very nice predictable pattern (though if it breaks the line, it's very bearish).
POWN at .47
POWN

YRCW is pretty deadbeat, but there was some high volume today.  Would watch if it's being dilluted since the volume is so huge all of a sudden with little price movement.  I might consider it for a short-term trade.
YRCW at .54:
YRCW

BBX just came out of a run a short while ago; it's also building a nice formation and is near the bottom resistence right now.
BBX at 2.03

ISCO is also running past $2.40.  I picked this up a while ago at $1.6 but got impatient with it.  Ah well.
ISCO at 2.02

Still just watching CCTC.  Maybe it might go lower before the next run.

Here are another few I found...

DKAM - ran twice before.  It's slowly arching up again so I don't want to miss it for the 3rd time. Tongue It tends to run from around .2 up to .3 range.
DKAM

LTS and TSEM are less volatile and more likely to run over a few days.  They're already up but the charts look good for continuation:
LTS
TSEM
