Thanks for the chart. My chart now matches yours with regards to bb's. I'm sure you are correct about excluding the pre-market data. But the candles are noticeably different - the bodies and wicks are different. This discrepancy seems like it might be harder to explain. I get my data from TD Ameritrade. I'll try do some research as to why it would be different.
Yet another bounce off the 20 as I've mentioned it doing in previous posts over the past few weeks. The 20 is the level of medium term support. Keep this up for a few more weeks and the 50/100/200 will be moving north to provide further levels of support without the stock having to dive off a cliff to test them.
Don't rule out the possibility of big money not getting crazy disappointed over the "lack" of the QE2 if it comes through small. The doubt has been backed in and it will most likely be good enough for the market just to be getting something out of it.
Besides, this is only short term fuel for commodities. Longer-term growth cycles will provide the true fundamental support. Nearly every miner has touted increasing production and investment in new mines and expansions over the next three years. They know what they're doing-- its not going to waste.
Re-invest the divs' and hold for the effects of compounded interest and you will make a sound return without any headaches or ulcers.
