Uranium Stocks in Still a Gamblers Market

Commodities / Uranium Jan 09, 2008 - 06:16 AM GMT

By: Merv_Burak

Commodities Another down day for the uranium stocks. There still seems to be no end to the decline but on the other hand the decline is still in a predictable and acceptable mode. Even some more downside would not change the basic intermediate or long term prognosis. But first, a rundown of what has happened on the close.


The Merv's Daily Uranium Index closed lower by 0.064 points or 1.52%. There were 15 winners, 31 losers and 4 unchanged. This is getting a little better and moving in the right direction. Yesterday we had 38 losers. The five largest stocks were a mixed bag today. Cameco lost 1.5%, Denison lost 0.3% Paladin lost 0.3%, YEX gained 4.0% and Uranium One gained 4.6%. The best performer today was East Asia Minerals with a gain of 13.3% while the worst performer today was Magnum Uranium with a loss of 13.3%. Yes, I checked, both the best and the worst were at the same % level but opposite in sign.

On the intermediate term nothing has changed. The Index is still below a negative sloping moving average line. The momentum is still in its negative zone and moving lower. The volume indicator is moving lower with the Index. Unfortunately I can no longer place any neutral rating on to the intermediate term. We are back to a full BEARISH intermediate term rating for the Index.

As for the short term, that too has not changed much. The Index is not definitely below the short term moving average line and the line has just turned downward. The momentum indicator remains in its negative zone and moving lower while the more aggressive Stochastic Oscillator is just about to enter its oversold zone. For now the short term rating remains a full BEARISH rating.

This is still a gambler's market.
