Uranium Companies

There are very few pure uranium companies. Most companies, especially the small exploration type, are active in more than the uranium industry. This blog makes no attempt to guage the percentage of a companies activity that are related to the finding, mining or processing of uraniun. They all do, however, have some uranium activities (to the best of our review).

Merv's Uranium Indices

I have developed two Uranium Indices. They each have the same component stocks but are calculated using different methodologies. My weekly Index is based upon the average weekly performance of the component stocks. My daily Index is based upon the daily average of the component stocks open, high, low and close prices along with the daily average volume of all component stocks.

After The Close, 08 Jul 2010

Merv’s Daily Uranium Index
Market Data

Open: 144.20
High: 145.47
Low: 139.87
Close: 142.89
Volume: 3262

Note that the volume is an average volume of round lot sales for the 50 component stocks. For total volume, multiply by 5000.

Was that all there is to this latest bounce? I think not. Today was just a relaxation day. The indicators are still pointing to more upside so we should not worry about one minimal reversal day. Of course, should we get more of these days THEN we can start to worry again. The relaxation may be due to a resistance level at the 145 level. We had a support there earlier. Once a support is broken on the down side that support level often becomes a resistance level. That may be what we have here but the resistance does not look very strong.

The Merv’s Daily Uranium Index declined by 0.60 points or 0.42%. There were 13 winners, 25 losers and 12 stocks not pulling their weight. Cameco lost 0.0% (I say lost because it did close on the down side by a few pennies but not enough to show up on the % value), Extract was one of those not pulling their weight, Fronteer lost 2.5%, Paladin gained 0.9% and Uranium One lost 1.1%. The best daily winner was CanAlaska Uranium with a gain of 10.0% while the worst loser was Forsys Metals with a loss of 16.4%. Market Vectors Nuclear Energy ETF gained 0.5%.

The small daily loss has not affected the intermediate or short term ratings. Both time periods remain BEARISH.

As for the immediate direction of least resistance, I’ll continue with the up side as the Stochastic Oscillator continues aggressively on the up side and the very short term moving average line continues in an upward direction.
