    oil prices,diamonds and volkswagon

    Some miners move, at least intermittently, at a faster pace upside/downside than the price of gold or silver.

    It is a reason traders choose triple long NUGT JNUG at times. It COULD also be a reason for some to at least TRADE CDE, since some of the recent percentage moves have been spectacular (from 3's to 6's, recently).

    High grade with numerous properties is also a reason CDE might be a 'long shot' for potential turnaround when/if silver makes a definite move. Personally think it's reasonable to hold or trade SOME shares of CDE and other silver miners at these prices. I would never hold ONLY CDE at a potential turnaround point for silver. That turnaround to upside is waaaaaaaaaaaaay overdue. My personal opinion is it's gonna happen. Not sure if more downside before the upmove, but I'm convinced (subjectively) that silver will have its day. More so than gold. Meanwhile, in case gold moves first and strongest, Coeur's exposure to both silver and gold is a plus.

    Holding TINY amount of CDE and have failed to trade it profitably on a regular basis since its fall from the 30's. HAVE traded elsewhere with success, thank God.

    Today, I did add to NUGT 2.88 for a potential trade, and YES, I'm aware of the
    'alleged' 'expected' r/s. I want to use any profits from bounces to buy specific silver miners, some u stocks, specific energies (including alt energies), specific biotechs and also to add to ocean shipping.

    I still think it's POSSIBLE, not necessarily probable, that a rate hike may be 'priced in' to miner pps.
    Could be some temporary volatility with a hike, if/when it occurs. Meanwhile, these prices become more and more absurd.

    Without clarity on the situation, I continue to TRADE bounces in NUGT or JNUG (or energies/some biotech), and to HOLD some shares of miners, most (at this point) at loss.

    More market meltdown not impossible. Not clear if it will be good for gold, but money is EVENTUALLY attracted to the most beaten down sectors. jmo

    Some miners have ALREADY made fabulous UPMOVES after the recent pullback/smackdown.

    Others have retested bottoms ... watch accum/distr, Twiggs, Chaikin Money Flow, ChiOsc, MFI.

    MIGHT be a scrumptious dip, followed by upmove. COULD be gap up and run if no rate raise...

    Languishing no help to shorts....and would certainly not be a great short after another 'nice' slap to downside, with perhaps a print of a 'hopeful' hammer despues?

  • According to Rickards, the Fed has markets and Wall Street foolishly convinced

    that it can and will raise rates when, in fact, the central bank – and the

    global economy – is in no position to withstand it.

    “The only policy that makes sense is new easing through negative interest

    rates, more forward guidance or more QE; but there is almost no chance of this

    happening – at least not yet,” he said.

    Rickards explained that if the Fed makes a move on rates on Sept 17, it will

    lead to a potential emerging-markets meltdown. However, if officials don’t

    raise rates, but continue to insinuate imminent rate increases, Rickards said

    to expect more market volatility as seen since early August.

    The Fed has really put itself in a corner, Rickards continued, because it will

    either “commit a disastrous policy error by raising rates in a weak economy”

    or “destroy its credibility by failing to raise rates after repeatedly saying

    it intends to do so.”

    See entire article at kitco website.

    My own opinion is that a hike may already be at least PARTLY priced in for the METALS, including precious metals. Could be a NICE buying dip, followed by some upside. NOT clear. NO certitude, but this area is closer to eventual turnaround, je crois.

    ONLY my opinion. Discl.: I have been adding to NUGT and to JNUG, also to some of my favorite biotechs (tho took some profits in EDAP, which has risen from 1's to 4.90's). Have also very GRADUALLY been accumulating more precious metals miners and also u-related/other energies as well).

    Did sell ALL my ACI and may consider small munch here in 3's. KOL (the ETF for coal) looks bullish to me for a POTENTIAL move.

    Agree that many will wait for CONFIRMATION (various levels and degress depending upon trading techniques and risk tolerance).

    Tapped out, but lookin' to add soon. Sold almost all of BTU into recent rise, but now have been adding to precious metals miners and specific small biotech.

    Need some profits from NUGT to add/trade BTU again.

    Personally expecting AT LEAST a bounce near term. EVEN IF Fed decides to hike, 'someone' might suggest it's already priced in, so far as gold/silver/miners are least fer now.


    Shorts at least have SOME FEAR or we would not observe SO MANY hammers on miners and associated ETFs.

    They have quietly covered in mining shares, imo, and in some cases, have already gone long.

    NOT impossible to have another smackdown in gold itself, but realize some miners had terrific upmoves even as gold was FALLING because they were PROFITABLE, or are on their way, even under current conditions.

    Meanwhile, a whiff of good news for these absurdly oversold miners and a stampede to upside could occur.

    ONLY examining the possibilities vs the probabilities.

    I put my money where my mouth is by adding to NUGT at 2.47 today and accumulating some more precious metal (and u and some other metals) miners in recent weeks.

    ONLY my opinion. Hope NO ONE follows advice of anonymous message board posters. I include my own take on the technicals in my evaluation for entry/exit and have OFTEN BEEN WRONG. See stockcharts tutorial to do your own assessment, if interested.

  • Need some bounce in NUGT next week.

    Even IF this is not the FINAL reversal to upside, these levels are worthwhile for many miners, including NEM, in MY opinion.

    NOT a rec. Does not help me in the least to post, since I would prefer NEM fall until I'm ready to buy myself. En plus, one poster does not a market make.

    HAVE been accumulating more miners recent weeks, however.

    DID trade bounces in the coals and took partial profits when/where I was able to do so, including great profits with ACI and reasonable profits with my trading of BTU...still own 'bookmark' of BTU, but sold ALL ACI as it rose to 9's. Have another coal, currently at los, tho expect to trade it up.

    For NEM, would be a long term hold, since I expect miners will have spectacular moves once the market 'realizes' how oversold and undervalued are. Ditto metals, u stocks, some biotech, specific energies that will not go bk.

    Profit for Good Causes

  • Personally have continued to accumulate miners at these levels and added to NUGT at 2.47 today.

    DO plan to sell some NUGT and JNUG into upmoves, however, and possibly trade 'em.

    Meanwhile, my beloved PRAN will help folks with Huntington's and Alzheimers if given the opportunity, imo.

    (See posts on PRAN mb of 'kadaicher' 'interestingtome' 'pivalde' 'pierreluke' and many other astute posters, some apparently researchers and/or MDs.) Also at a potential add place IF the upmove continues.

    cog - at what point is cytx a buy?

    by winterandluke Sep 2, 2015 3:26 PM
    vcaritas vcaritas Sep 10, 2015 12:16 PM Flag

    Draw the trendlines for yourselves instead of 'listening' to message board posters whose agenda could be anything but your own.

    CYTX hit a lower downtrend line at .285. The time to buy big was as it rose from that area. I ordinarily buy much more than I want to hold in a case like this (grossly oversold AND with multiple reasons a biotech may move from lows, including technical considerations). I usually sell MOST into a huge spike and hold the rest to re-evaluate based on near term, intermediate, long term potential, financials, technicals, etc.

    Some resistance here in .50's, but if volume pushes it higher may go to .58/.60 or even higher before pulling back.

    I have already taken partial profits twice. Numerous challenges may or may not be resolved in a timely small biotech may be I do not hold all shares. Goal is generally to hold 'free shares' (selling half, or even more than half, when it doubles, or by whatever trading is required).

    Sirstockwatcher4u13, please email me (or post) your favorite silver stocks (including juniors).

    Have been actively investing/trading for a little more than a decade, attempting to learn as much as possible about markets, technicals, and all related. Background NOT in business/finance, but now forming strategies to outsmart the manipulators for the sake of my family, friends, and good causes.

  • Commodities index retested 180's. In year 2000, tested 160's, in 2002, 180's. CRB still has a very low point and figure target (137). I NEVER weight the traditional p&f targets heavily. They are not MY targets (upside OR downside), tho I do take them into consideration in many cases, along with other factors. It is also possible to devise other TYPES of p&f and other (time/date, etc.) charts using personalized techniques.

    Not certain if retest down to 160's will occur, but there HAS been high volume upside and large percentage gains for energies and some miners from recent lows.

    Posted repeatedly on the UNG and CDE message boards re accumulating GASL (cost basis 6's). GASL closed +33.5% at 6.07. Not quite green yet, tho I plan to trade it heavily once reversal is clear (at key areas).

    CDE closed up 8.72% at 3.24. Many other silver and gold miners green, along with

    NUGT (3X precious metals miners) +17.23%, closing at 3.13

    ACI closed at 7.03, up another 38%. Took all profits...huge percentage gains there.

    BTU +49% at close (2.29). Have sold about 3/4's of my shares into the rise, tho I'm watching for another add/trade IF the cnh config plays out.

    Have posted on numerous occasions on this message board, on the ACI, BTU message board that I have been accumulating/trading or was poised for a trade in coals, specifically mentioning ACI and BTU. Even the coals in bk are still trading. (cf, some airlines, in the past ?). NOT a rec. Volatile.

    Some of my favorite biotechs (based on SCIENCE, not technicals) are again looking better from a technical standpoint. May add (or in one case, rebuy).

    LOVE silver. Not certain it has bottomed, but miners have been crushed and smashed enough for me to be taking some more tiny positions. TINY. Will add/trade, possibly 10 to 50 times MORE THAN I HOLD, tho I may possibly hold MORE when/if silver is in confirmed uptrend.

    Go CDEbiscuit !!!

    My GASL now up 28%. Sold small amount into the rise.

    Look at coal...related to nat gas in particular and energy in general. 40% and higher moves in BTU ACI, which I also own...those at profit...GASL not yet at profit...need 6's trading 5.85.

    silver up today

    "Speculation." Markets are speculative. Probabilities of taking a position at the right time may be evaluated using a combination of factors, including fundamental and technical analysis, analysis of geopolitical and economic events, etc.

    There is no certainly that silver will go higher. Probabilities are increasing that an investment in CDE will be profitable...more and more profitable.

    Personally look for the highest near term potential gainers to OVERWEIGHT near term, but I'm holding my munch of CDE....likely very long term. Saw ACI BTU GASL had higher probabilities of greater percentage gains, so my emphasis has been there more recently.

    My attention to silver and silver miners ... is increasing at this point. Ditto NUGT and JNUG (had sold some repeatedly into previous upmoves, holding some, and have been awaiting completion of the pullback for more adding. GDX retested recent lows. NUGT tested lower, since it is triple X GDX.

    Lotta small energies making huge upmoves also.

    GASL was up about 24%. Been trading GASL and some coals recently. Cost basis in 6's and plan to trade to VERY GREEN. GASL trading at 5.56 at the moment. Had touched 4.11 Tues.

    ACI BTU both were up more than 40% intraday. Took partial profits in each.

    Huge upside vol GASL ACI BTU.

    UWTI up 18%. Have 'bookmark' quantity to observe for potential trading.

    GST+10% intraday

    GDP +14% thus far intraday.
    EXXI +15%

    Small o&g volatile traders. jmo

  • ACI and BTU were higher. Did take partial profits.

    NOT a rec. Simply following up on my mining posts, which include precious metals mining.

    Observe that bashers became increasingly negative and numerous on the coal message boards and here when it was really a potential buy/trade opportunity. Coal is still treacherous....may be more bk, r/s, etc.

    Still like both silver and coal (and also uranium) longer term. Some specific biotech and also many others metals/minerals/niche stocks, specific countries, energies.

    Most recently I mentioned I had been accumulating GASL. High upside volume there today, with 24% upmove.

    Planning to trade it UP.
