Since this week had been a slow week in term of bullish momentum, it is better to show the weekly chart just so you can see the up movement.

SPY_Weekly

There you go.  An up bar.  From the daily chart, you can hardly see the move…

Today, I decided to take profit from $URA bounced-back rally so I could allocate fund to $NUGT and $AMRN.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m still bullish with $URA except that I felt the potential for a stronger bounce can come from $AMRN and $NUGT which are in the process of forming a bottom.  $URA, meanwhile, had already made an initial bullish drive in the last six trading days.

URA_weekly

Can $URA go higher?  Sure, but yesterday big down day tell me it may be a rocky ride from here.  Today bounce simply gave me an opportunity to lock in gain first.

Before I bought $NUGT near the end of the trading day, I had been daytrading $DUST.  Every dips I bought could not bounce well.  Even by the last hour before closing bell, the time when $NUGT would usually give back decent size gain, $DUST could not sustain a bounce.  I was racking up tiny losses buying $DUST.  By then, I realized $NUGT was holding its ground solidly.  I checked $URA price and it was printing $13.96 and then I checked $NUGT which, by some miraculous design, was also printing $13.96!

“That’s my clue!”

I immediately sold 50% of $URA and bought the same number of shares in $NUGT.  $NUGT went on to reach the high of $14.20 but settled down to close $13.93 which was right around the corner of $URA closing price of $13.96.

NUGT_daily

The daily chart of $NUGT above showed a very strong bullish engulfment bar with higher than average volume.  The fact that today was a second attempt to rally hard after the first attempt failed 6 trading days ago is a testament of the bull resolve to bounce.

NUGT_weekly

From the weekly chart above, the last two green bars with high volumes told me that the probability of a bottom is high. There were lot of buyers in the last two weeks!

Then I decided to check the weekly script # for $AMRN.  9,880!  Only 120 to hit 10,000 weekly. While I already have a position on $AMRN, I decided it was time bulk it up for a possible bounce.  So I sold the remaining shares of $URA to do so.

AMRN_daily

The above daily chart showed that $AMRN had been rallying since Tuesday albeit on less than average volume. Nevertheless, I’m motivated to add more due to the weekly chart below:

AMRN_weekly

$AMRN has a decent green bar with volume that is comparable to the last six weeks.  It is enough for me to bet on a possible bounce from here.

$LRAD was practically neutral for the week albeit a slightly down week.

LRAD_weekly

There is nothing to drive $LRAD until the earning announcement and future guidance come out late next week.  I’m locked and loaded on this one.

$DMRC did not have a good week since the weekly red bar below is not an appealing bar at all.

DMRC_weekly

However, the positive side is that price is still above the 5, 15, 79 & 89 MA lines.  So, I’ll call this a “resting” week for $DMRC.

$ORBC has a solid up week with very high volume.

ORBC_weekly

From the weekly chart above, I’ve to say that $ORBC is gearing up for a major rally. Did you see how the price had been bouncing off the 79 & 89 MA lines for the last eight week?  These 79 & 89 MA lines are powerful support lines and have been proven to be a dependable launching pad for strong rally.

Due to $DMRC down day, my port gave back 0.4% for the day (thanks to gain from $URA to cushion the draw down),   YTD gain is now at 11.85%.

Current holdings:

LRAD, DMRC, ORBC, AMRN, NUGT (100% invested/speculated)

My 2 cents.
