    Looks like a smart move today!

  • elkster08 by elkster08 Jul 23, 2014 1:25 PM Flag

    Is this selling or shorting? Seems like there is no relief in site. Coal is down and NG is down. I guess electricity is free now.

    Linear regression line supports the current price. I use a slow a stochastics indicator and it 's telling me we are going higher. It's anybody's guess where we are going today. Not sure how you get a strong sell but we'll see what happens.

  • elkster08 elkster08 Jul 21, 2014 9:07 AM Flag

    I guess you shorts don't use charts. I was in this and got out after a nice profit. I should have just stayed in. My chart is telling me to get in NOW!!! Sorry dude, you better cover.

    The Street

    Today another negative story from "The Street" on ANR. Let's start counting them. We'll know they are done playing with this stock when The Street goes positive. Should be December of 2016 if we get a Republican. The Democrats platform for the 2016 Presidential election will be painting the Republicans to be in a war against the environment. If that doesn't stick they always have the war on women to fall back on.

    Once the the rich have had their party with killing the coal price, they will be loading up. Then they will come out with a story about NG drilling causing more pollution by releasing methane or causing earthquakes and the tide will turn. I've come to believe everything under the sun is manipulated. Eventually coal will be made to burn clean or turned into a liquid fuel. All things in good time.

    I have a suspicion that the Street (Cramer) is in the tank for Obama and the coal shorts. I am an amateur conspiracy theorists but my suspicion here is based on something Cramer said about coal a few years ago. He said it would go "endlessly down". The only person who would know that is someone who had the financial muscle to endlessly "short" the industry. The Street will only put out negative stories on coal. I would bet some of the bashers here are from the Street or from the hedge funds it supports. Street writes a negative story, the hedge fund shorts the stock and the crooks cash in.

    My point being that I usually enter when it crosses up through the 5 DMA. Works better if you use a candlestick chart.

  • elkster08 by elkster08 Jul 17, 2014 10:16 AM Flag

    Almost a whole point between the 10 & 5 DMA but at least we something of a pattern other than down. If we can hold and consolidate here it will be a nice add or initial entry for others.

    Sentiment: Buy

    It's a recent IPO soon it seems unlikely to be buyout candidate.This is some very weird action. If you draw a linear regression line on this chart it's way, way oversold. It's good news all around except that gas prices are down a bit. So if the good news doesn't reflect in the price action, there is some news known by insiders. I'm holding and bought too soon but I hate sitting through a down draft with an unknown bottom. Not a good looking chart right now.

    Sentiment: Hold

  • elkster08 by elkster08 Jul 14, 2014 1:29 PM Flag

    Sorry guys, I got in so the price went down. This is very interesting action. I'm thinking we have a big player building a position. According to people like Cramer, hedge funds (like his) would short to get the retails players selling and then turn right around and buy. I could be wrong but there is no news and RR is not down today.

    Sentiment: Buy

    Sharpie, Could you give me a little information about what these number you are posting mean? Just trying to learn a little. I think it would be beneficial to a few others here as well. Thanks.

    I was watching a story on CNN tonight. They said Obama was a Constitutional Law Professor. Obama was NEVER a Constitutional Law Professor, he was a Law lecturer at Harvard. Go check it out. I can't say for sure how he got there since his records are sealed. His subject matter was mostly derived from his mentor Frank Marshall Davis and Saul Alinsky. The truth is still out there to be re-discovered. We have all been hypnotized by the B.S. Most decent people want to believe the best about other people. That's the tool that was used to make this guy president. All I ask is to do your research and vote with a clear head in the 2014 & 2016 elections. Our collective lives depend on it. I'm making these statements here because I'm heavily invested in this stock and company. I've been on their grounds and believed in them, so I invested in them. That was before our first "half-black" president declared he would destroy coal. Is it not accurate that he is half-white? Is that offensive to anyone? It shouldn't be unless you want to disrespect his mother. Since he is not the first black president, you are now free to criticize him. Or at least the white part.

  • We may have missed a few points (I took profits too early) but we are now looking at the possibility of a much longer, stronger move. 3 year chart puts things in perspective. I'm still waiting until tomorrow for confirmation. In addition to SLW I'm looking at: GG, ABX, & SAND. GLTA.

    Ok shorts VLO up .82 premarket on 3700 shares

    You'll know what's happening with this at about 10:10. All retail before then or so I've been told.

  • President Obama was greatly influenced by the "Godfather" of community organizing. See if any of his ideas apply to the current state of affairs in this country.

    1) Healthcare — Control healthcare and you control the people
    2) Poverty — Increase the Poverty level as high as possible, poor people are easier to control and
    will not fight back if you are providing everything for them to live.
    3) Debt — Increase the debt to an unsustainable level. That way you are able to increase taxes, and
    this will produce more poverty.
    4) Gun Control — Remove the ability to defend themselves from the Government. That way you are able to
    create a police state.
    5) Welfare — Take control of every aspect of their lives (Food, Housing, and Income).
    6) Education — Take control of what people read and listen to — take control of what children learn in
    7) Religion — Remove the belief in the God from the Government and schools.
    8) Class Warfare — Divide the people into the wealthy and the poor. This will cause more discontent
    and it will be easier to take (Tax) the wealthy with the support of the poor.

    Thank you for the educational reply. I have been using TA now for about 4 years and I'm always puzzled by how many times I've seen a stock hit resistance (after what appears to be a very strong move) and fail. I'm sure there is an answer but seems unlikely a result of retail investing or coincidence. I'm looking for a gap close and reentry for the next move up.
