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.

Merv’s Daily Uranium Index

Market Data for Friday 24 Dec 2010

Open: 247.44

High: 249.34

Low: 244.70

Close: 247.29

Volume: 2687

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

Note that additional charts of the Daily and Weekly Indices were posted earlier and should be viewed during this commentary.

This relaxation could become a habit but I guess I’d better get off my --- and post the weekly commentary.

Nothing much happened during this past week. The Daily Index basically went sideways and remains in that box from which we are awaiting the next move. The action of the Index continues to look like a topping activity but all one reads in the media is the great potential ahead for uranium. Stocks act mostly on perceived future potential so a topping activity in the Index does not seem to compute versus the stories in the media. I’ll go with the market action. Should the media stories really be true and a great future lies ahead then the stocks will go with the direction of the future despite some short term hesitation.

I’m still in holiday mode so I’ll cut this week’s analysis short. Although there are indications of weakness in the market action, suggesting a possible topping activity, as far as the indicators are concerned there is nothing much to worry about yet. For all three time periods the rating remains BULLISH.

II leave it up to you to check the charts posted here and earlier in the week to determine what’s happening. I hope that with the commentaries you are learning some of the basics of technical analysis (if you did not previously have the knowledge) so this is a good time to exercise that knowledge.

It’s heartening to get so many well wishers during this Christmas season. Thanks. Here’s wishes again to all for a profitable new year.

Will be back in full force in about a week or so. Otherwise posting will remain sporadic.

Happy New Year Merv! (A few days early)

Based on the chart, it looks like the index is in a consolidation phase for a little while before the next break higher (For us bulls)

In the short term, Stochasitics and RSI looks like they are heading to the downside. It may be short lived as the overall markets for hard assets and commodities seem to be bullish.

Thank you for your outstanding blog. I have learned more from your observations about TA, then any other blog, or so called expert.
