Market fell off the cliff today but managed to hang onto to the tree branch dangling above the consolidation range.


See how price closed back above the range?  I could see a bounce tomorrow.

Meanwhile, thanks to $KNDI and $CARA, my port made new high today.

$KNDI opened lower but bounced back to the surface rather quickly.


As you can see, the bear tried to push $KNDI down in mid-day but failed; price bounced back up to close near the high of day.  It was a nice looking bullish chart, you would think the general market was up today just by look at $KNDI chart.

My weekend research pointed me to $CARA.  It has a fantastic story of a pain-killer drug that is as strong as a morphine drug but without the opiate addiction side-effect.  Please pardon my pasting an excerpt from a contributor from SeekingAlpha:

The most exciting CARA compound is CR845, which is not a CB-acting drug. CR845 is unique because it acts on pain receptors in the same class as those acted on by morphine but it does not cross the blood-brain barrier, leading to significantly reduced side effects. This molecule is currently in Phase III studies for Post-Operative Pain, and had excellent morphine-sparing effects in Phase II results.

I couldn’t contain my excitement as I learned more about $CARA.  As luck would have it, due to negative market open, $CARA also opened down.  I jumped at the opportunity to build up a position while price was debating whether to go down more or to go back up.  I didn’t care if it would go down more ’cause I wanted to buy more.   As price began to climb back above water, I just kept on buying until I got the amount I wanted.


To my surprise, price began to climb much higher from my entry point during mid-day.  Although price gave back some gain from the high of the day, $CARA closed almost 13% higher for the day.

$SEED also performed admirably in the face of down market.


Price did bounce back from the support as I had predicted.  $SEED looks like it is going to go much higher soon.

Although $LRAD, $MZOR, and $KGJI all corrected a bit today, the gain from $KNDI, $CARA, and $SEED propelled my port to another new high today.

Current holdings:

KNDI, LRAD, MZOR, SEED, CARA, KGJI, SVA and 1.5% cash.

From my other account:

$FITX continued to head south and somehow, I wasn’t concerned at all.


Notice that price is getting near the 50% retracement area.  Currently, the heat I’m taking is being absorbed by the gain I made from $XTRM earlier before I got into $FITX.  In the back of my head, I somehow know that $FITX will pull through and get the facility build… but that’s just me.

My 2 cents.

The SPY took a tumble after reaching new high but then bounced back to close higher for the week.


From the chart, it all looks good.  Today was a pause day with a bias to the upside.

$KNDI took out the $17 resistance and made new high.


Although price closed below $17, it opened the door for further $17.xx.  In other words, The resistance was one layer weakened.

Regardless, $KNDI closed strong for the week.


See how high the volume was for the week?  While some may focus on how many cars $KNDI might have sold so far, I don’t think this is what drive the price up, I think it is the “potential” of multiple cities adoption of $KNDI car-sharing (vending machine style) programs that will drive the price.  Come March earnings, I believe people will look for the clue on number of cities signing on in the program.   Just take a look at some of the biotech such as $CLDX and $ISIS, look at their market cap compared to the revenues.

$LRAD looked good so far.


Despite a rough day fighting off sellers, it ended the day neutral.  Now, $LRAD just needs to take out the resistance @ $2.24 to move higher.

$MZOR closed higher a bit but did took out the upper range of the consolidation during the day.


I believe $MZOR will continue to climb from here since the recent earnings result was all good on the revenues increase.  I see more and more surgeons and hospitals adopting this robotic device to provide better efficiency and accuracy in spinal and brain surgery.

$SEED bounced higher but gave back all gain before closing.


The good news is that price still stays above support for now.  I believe traders and investors alike will buy the support for the next leg up.

$SVA was a bit disappointing ’cause price closed negative after breaking out of the consolidating range.


Nevertheless, price is now settling right on the convergence of the 5 and 15 MA lines.  Sometimes, this is a good support here.  Let’s see if price will bounce next week.

$KGJI continued to head south below resistance.


Although I’m taking heat, it was small heat.  But still, it was money tied up unproductively.  It hasn’t really gone anywhere even when $NUGT went higher.  I guess I just have to wait for the next $KGJI earnings report to see any big move here- up or down.  I’m voting for up, of course.

Due to a mixed batch of ups and downs on my six stocks in my port, I ended up with a neutral day.  But my port had a strong week that ended in a new high.

Current holdings:

KNDI, LRAD, MZOR, SEED, KGJI, SVA and 5% cash.

From my other account:

$FITX collapse after breaking down below $0.08 that caused panic selling.


My only thought at that instant was “why didn’t I wait a few more days before adding?”.

See how the daily bar closed with a hammer candlestick?  This can mean a “possible” bottom.  But price needs to close above today high next week to confirm the bottom.

Oh well, by sticking to my discipline of not averaging down, I stayed put.  When I said I was done buying yesterday it meant that I was done scaling in.  Anything purchase after that against a downdraft is considered averaging down.  Thus, I did not buy more today.  Still long and strong and I believe the facility will be completed and the permit will be granted by Health Canada.  Yeap, that is my conviction, right or wrong.

My 2 cents.
