INK Canadian Insider Index moves above 20 and 50 DMAs

Thank you for joining us in a weekly technical look at the mid-cap oriented INK Canadian Insider (CIN) Index. Last week proved a very significant week for the Index as it not only completed a bullish double bottom pattern at 900 but the Index also went on to blast through a major area of congestion which included its 20 and 50 day moving averages at 933 and 951 respectively.

A double bottom for the INK Canadian Insider Index?

Technical Overview by Nicholas Winton, Hedgehog Trader and @HedgehogTrader on Twitter

Thank you for joining us in a weekly technical look at the mid-cap oriented INK Canadian Insider (CIN) Index. The Index pulled back steeply to the 900 level, which we've been noting as a key support, before closing last week at 921.70. While its initial momentum has definitely dissipated with a drop of nearly 3% since our last update, a pullback to 900 was not unexpected as a re-test is often required before we can see an advance play out.

Thank you for joining us in a weekly technical look at the mid-cap oriented INK Canadian Insider (CIN) Index. The INK CIN Index, fresh on the heels of a powerful reversal (along with other rising world markets) continued its forward momentum and rose nearly 10 points or a modest 1% this week to 945.49, clearing its 20-day simple moving average at 937.3. The Index bullishly gapped higher when markets opened on Friday morning, and by day's end the CIN index found itself 6.8% off its January lows.

Are Silver Standard Resources investors up for a silver surprise?

Thank you for joining us in a technical look at charts of INK CIN Index member Silver Standard Resources (SSO) and the price of silver.

If there has been a commodity that has shined bright during the last three months of market turmoil, it's silver. It has been trading in a sideways consolidation pattern between $13.50 and $14.50 since mid-November.

INK CIN Index makes bullish hammer pattern, rallies 5.7% off lows

Technical Overview by Nicholas Winton, Hedgehog Trader and @HedgehogTrader on Twitter

Thank you for joining us in a weekly technical look at the mid-cap oriented INK Canadian Insider (CIN) Index. In our last update, we theorized the INK CIN Index would find a bottom around the 900 level since it based in that area for a few months during 2013. As it turns out, the Index did use this level as a springboard, after completing a capitulatory bottom which saw it fall as low as 885 intraday on January 20th, piercing below its lower Bollinger band. Later the same day, the chart completed a bullish hammer pattern, when the CIN Index closed the day with a small gain after making an impressive reversal 2.4% above its lows. We then saw two more positive days of gains, including Friday where the index bullishly 'gapped up' at the open and closed strongly near its highs.

What are we looking for?
 
We want to screen for the 10 highest ranking stocks listed on either the NYSE or Nasdaq.
Rankings are determined by the INK Edge V.I.P. criteria (valuations, insider commitment and price momentum). This is the same approach we apply across the broad market to determine membership for the INK Canadian Insider Index, which is used by the Horizons Canadian Insider Index ETF (HII).

INK Canadian Insider Index seeks bottom around 900 level

Technical Overview by Nicholas Winton, Hedgehog Trader and @HedgehogTrader on Twitter

Thank you for joining us in a technical look at the mid-cap oriented INK Canadian Insider (CIN) Index. It's been a gruelling few weeks for stock markets worldwide, and Canadian stocks were no exception. The INK CIN Index has fallen 9% since running into resistance once again at the 1000 level in late December.

Thank you for joining us for a weekly technical look at the mid-cap oriented INK Canadian Insider (CIN) Index. In our last update, we reiterated how tough a time the INK CIN Index has had breaking up through the 1000 level which it once again found itself pressed up against. With traders back in the saddle last week, volume proved to be no ally, as momentum wilted and we saw another breakout attempt fall short.

Banro bounds to the top of its Bollinger bands

This morning we revisit Banro Gold Corp (BAA) which we last featured in October of last year. The small gold-producing junior is worth watching for its formidable relative strength. Banro has been among the strongest resource stocks since late December, rising 25%. This move has been all the more impressive when you realize Banro has outperformed the price of gold by a measure of 5 to 1 over the same period.
