    Hello Ken,

    #35 yesterday, can you please post your chart and comments on TGZ.TO ?


  2. Larry/ON Says:

    Nasdaq – Yesterday was the highest close since March 16th. We did not break through the intra-day high of May 14. We are really close but will it break through?
    GOOGL – looks really interesting – was squeezed up by the 50 and 200 day with a big pop this morning
    FB – highest since Jan peak – Tech stocks are building momentum
    AMZN – my earlier panic pessimism proved wrong
    SHOP – broke through resistance to levels not seen since March

    Thanks so much for continuing to post. I really appreciate the time you take to update.

    – a nice run from $ 3.50 open.

    Appreciate your posts. Good eye! Keep em coming!

    I don’t know how to post, but if you pull up the one year daily on TGZ.TO, you’ll clearly see its been on a tear from Dec 2017. Once it got decisively above the 20 EMA, price has been bouncing off of it since. The 30 min chart is choppy, not as pretty. I don’t have a position yet and have not looked at the fundamentals. The way its trading, not even sure if it is really a gold company!

    MU: Tried to catch that falling knife and got in this morning with a tight stop but it got triggered. I thought it was ready to bounce at gap support before the evidence presented itself. See what happens when you don’t follow your own rules!

    MU – Downgrade by MS from outperform to sector perform with $65 target was well-timed along with a couple of questioning media reports. Some people in the MS boiler-room are making some great trades
    Listened to the webcast today – Mostly a rehash of the previous conference day. A lot of optimistic ideas about demand. The interesting tidbit was that MU sales for cloud storage in 2016 was less than $500 mil and in the first half of 2018 it was $1.6 Bil so more than 6 times growth for full year. AI demand is growing and in very early stages – Amount of data mem and storage in autonomous vehicles is absolutely huge but this will still be years away.

  7. Vik Says:


    Larry, I agree with you that MS is the reason behind today’s drop. They are probably looking to add at some point and want the price to pull back…

    Seems like the story is that as technology advances and permeates our life even more there will be an increasing demand for memory and MU is well placed for all that.

    Earnings are Wed. June 20 @ 4PM.

    Armstrong on the DOW

    “There is no shot at electing a Monthly Bearish Reversal, but we do have a Minor Monthly Bullish at 24328 and we are trading at 24580 at the time of this post. We are building a base a closing ABOVE the April high of 24858.97 will be a technical bullish signal as well. A closing above 24328 will imply that we are starting to firm up for the broader term.”
