Silver and silver stocks prepare for their next leg higher

In my Jan 27th technical review on silver and Silver Standard (SSO), I stated I was very bullish on silver and silver equities in part due to the strong relative strength of silver during the steep January stock market correction. Since that post, Silver Standard has risen about 50% and the price of silver has risen as much as 10%. Indeed, both gold and silver stocks alike have performed very well. Another junior miner Claude Resources (CRJ) which we covered in a Dec 11th technical review has also gained 50% since our review highlighting its relative strength.

INK CIN Canadian Insider Index rallies 1%, momentum indicators remain strong

Thank you for joining us in a weekly technical look at the mid-cap oriented INK Canadian Insider (CIN) Index. Since our last update, the CIN Index continued its climb, rising 11 points or 1% and it even reached a high of 975.76, before closing the week at 971.69. The close on Friday was a bit negative, as it closed down over half a percent from its highs and left a reversed hammer pattern. However, we did see a similar reverse hammer pattern on Feb 22nd and it simply led to a 2-day pause before the Index made a new multi-week high.

Gitzel fuels up with Cameco, Mosaic buys

It’s no exaggeration to say Saskatchewan-based Power Prospector Tim Gitzel is powered by fuel and food. His corporate involvement spans both nuclear giant Cameco (CCO) and NYSE-listed fertilizer play The Mosaic Company (MOS*US), and lately he’s been adding to his stake in both companies.

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.

INK Canadian Insider Index continues slow recovery

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.  Last week, the INK CIN Index paused, shedding 5 points or 0.5% after racking up an almost 7% rebound from its lows where it gapped up twice in the span of a week.

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 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.

Number Cruncher: The silver-lining strategy - focus on value

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).
