    The time of..

    by iambak2poop May 1, 2016 5:35 PM

    Thanks for the response, and hopefully the dark days are behind us.
    Once we get a little higher, I will be more confident that we will keep going up.
    Not being negative, just cant get the bad days out of my head.
    At least we are going in the right direction.
    Slow and up is a better chance of holding most of the gains for the day, instead of up a dollar or close to that, and then the pull back.
    Unless you sell and rebuyt like Dapoop did the other day.
    I almost pulled the trigger but didn't, should of.
    Hopefully in the next day or 2, we break 5.80 and get into the 6's.
    Good Luck, and God Bless

    The time of..

    by iambak2poop May 1, 2016 5:35 PM

    Big Jake this morning after the open from 8:35-8:50 made me nervous. I saw the xbi go red, and we bounced off 5.37,5.39 several times. I almost sold. I thought here we go again they are going to slaughter us. I took several deep breaths, and watched, and then BOOM off we went.
    Support has been slowly going up, and once we break thru 5.80 we go to 6's.
    Its hard not to forget the last couple of years, but it is finally starting to look good-I think.

    I still feel our first nice catalyst is an EU partner, and we get going. I used to think the BO was around the corner, but now I feel that the EU partner very well could be the buyer, but may be they partner up, and test the waters, and then when everything goes well- BAM out of no where the BO happens.
    Curios on your thoughts about this.

    Well maybe today will be a better indicator

    Janet you are definitely right on the SEC. I don't remember how many times I complained before I actually got a complaint number.
    That was a year ago. The only thing that has changed is we are up from where we were, but still down from where we were a year ago.

    Trying not to dream too much, I just know that sooner or later we get going.
    If they ever get the EU partner that is step 1.
    I also believe in the buy out, but I also believe that is farther away than some believe.
    EU partner first and maybe (good chance) they are the buyer in the future.
    Good Luck

    DaPoop, I am starting to wonder if Seth made a few calls and told his buddies to cover.
    May be EU partner is very close.
    May be I am just hoping, but this action has to make you wonder if some type of good news is just around the corner.

    What the hell manipulation !!!!!!

    You are right that the BOJ, dropped Asia, but we were on the way up. Nasdaq was up nicely, and then the last 90 mins or so the market just tanked, and no one knows why.
    Someone hit the sell button and everyone followed, letting the computers do there BS work

    The entire market took a crp about 1 hour ago.
    xbi, and ibb went negative after being up nicely today.
    Something tripped the computers to go nuts and sell, just don't know what caused it.
    Basically this is just one royally screwed up market right now.

    Gas that makes a lot of sense. To say jump in and buy to new people is saying the future looks good.
    We know the future is good, but that revolves around EU partnerships, and the future B.O.

    So once we get through here where was the next resistance level.
    I am thinking it was around 6.30

    When you left we were higher, so I hoped your donkey punch was strong.
    Looks like we are starting to bounce again. I hope I did not just jinx us

    It looks like it.
    4 hours into trading and 3.74 million shares traded.
    I almost sold in the 5.80s.
    I was stupid thinking they would give us a really nice day.
    Fing jag offs. Hopefully we get a bounce this afternoon. Still up 30 cents is the bright side

    If they would have given us bad news, some of them would have already had downgrades initiated.
    If upgrades are coming hopefully in a day or 2.
    With upgrades or with out we will take this.
    Either shorts are nervous, or the cc impressed some buyers.

    A nice big immediate jump on some good news, like EU partner would be nice.
    But, big fast run ups create pull backs, Slow and steady up, creates a better chance of it holding.

    Could that be that some shorts have covered and given those shares that are available to short back to Fidelity. Now Fidelity is looking for new people to short. At this time any new shorts we would have to call suckers, with the sucker punch coming soon to shorts.

    Sadie: 1 million shares in 85 mins of trading.
    I wonder if its short covering, new buyers, or people adding more shares.
    What ever the reason we will take it.
    May be we are finally done with the garbage, and hopefully good days are ahead for us.

    Jenny I thought/hoped that an EU partner was being announced this morning, because of the early earnings released.
    So, I agree with you that may be something is up.
    Short volume is decreasing, and you really have to wonder.

    Yes a B.O.will happen, but I think it may be awhile yet.
    Even though these games are getting old with the manipulation the longer we wait the more we get.
    mid 30's, low 40's by waiting.

    By the way the manipulation game has gotten better.
    It was much worse last year. That's the bright side until a nice catalyst like EU partnership finally happens.

    Sadie that's great news.
    I took a break from the board. Traveling with my part time job, and just too much noise on this board.
    I sold again the other day in preparation for another bear raid.
    It does not look like that's going to happen so I bought back in this morning.
    Grabbed up the shares at 5.02, 5.03 and made a little more money.
    I was ready for them to beat the crp out of it at the open and it did not happen, (which is good)
    Dutch said the other day it looks like we have support at 5, and after surviving the first 2 hours I would say very strong support at 5.
    Hopefully the BS games are over, and we can start making some serious money.

    You got 3 thumbs down for pretty much speaking the truth, except for the chance do we do go somewhat higher before we pull back.
    A few crppy market days will pull us down. We can then fill that darn gap and get going soon.
    S&P is approaching resistance, and oil is running out of steam, and will probably drop soon.
    Even with dropping to 3.60 to fill that gap, its not that big a drop to see.
    I know many don't want to hear it, but it beats 15 months ago when we were at 15 and Joe said we were going to fill a gap at 10.
    I like many told him he was nuts.
    HE WAS RIGHT.
