Merv’s Daily Uranium Index
Note that the volume is an average volume of round lot sales for the 50 component stocks. For total volume, multiply by 5000.
Was a little under the weather yesterday and didn’t post. Good thing nothing much was going on, at least as far as the Daily Index was concerned. Today, a very minor day that hasn’t changed anything from the indicator or ratings standpoint BUT is showing the internal topping going on. The momentum indicator continues to top out and the more aggressive Stochastic Oscillator just keeps on plunging and heading towards its neutral 50% level. Over the past 6 days despite a basic upward Index move the Stochastic Oscillator has been in a steady dive. Not a picture of a very strong Index move. I would guess that we see the Index ready to move lower. After all it has had quite a run these past 5 months.
The Merv’s Daily Uranium Index closed lower by all of 0.25 points or 0.10%. There were 17 winners, 27 losers and 6 stocks just sitting around in a daze. Cameco gained 0.3%, Denison gained 4.4%, Extract gained 4.1%, Paladin gained 2.0% and Uranium One gained 4.2%. With all those gainers it’s a wonder that the Index only moved 0.1%, and to the down side. The best winner of the day was Formation Metals with a gain of 10.0% while the loser of the day was Continental Precious Minerals with a loss of 9.0%. Market Vectors Nuclear Energy ETF lost 0.5%.
Despite the warnings coming from the momentum indicators the various indicators and ratings remain unchanged and all still BULLISH.
As for the immediate direction of least resistance, that will be to the lateral for another day. It has been basically working lately.
