Another pick from my Biotechnology Basket, ISCO is a perfect example of my Weekends Only Trading System.

ISCO Weekly Trend Model

International Stem Cell Corporation

International Stem Cell Corporation (OTCBB:ISCO) develops a powerful new stem cell technology called “parthenogenesis” that promises to significantly advance the field of regenerative medicine by addressing the significant problem of immune-rejection. Parthenogenesis utilizes unfertilized human eggs to create “parthenogenetic” stem cells (hpSC) that can be “immune-matched” to millions of persons of differing sexes and racial backgrounds. A relatively small number of hpSC lines could provide sufficient immune-matched cells to cover large parts of the world’s population. ISCO plans to create a bank of these valuable hpSC lines (UniStemCell™) to serve all populations across the world.

Human parthenogenetic stem cells have great therapeutic potential, yet do not require viable human embryos, thus avoiding ethical issues. ISCO’s scientists are focused on using hpSC to treat severe diseases of the eye, the nervous system and the liver where cell therapy has been proven clinically yet is limited by the availability of safe immune-matched human cells.

NNVC cycles like everything else. Gird up your loins, and be man.

It should have been almost impossible to buy NNVC at 1.70 !! that was the absolute top. How did you achieve that ?!

did you not look at the chart? did you not draw any trendlines, look at any fibs, any s/r points,any moving averages? any previous highs /lows and pivot points, or even the recent past several days when there were 4 bounces at the 1.40-43 area that could have been ok entry points.
One would have had to ignore All these things in order to just chase the stock as it broke out and even then it took 2 and 1/2 days to go from 1.10 to 1.70

Please dont do that sort of thing again. What were you thinking?!

wait,this is a joke, right? april fools,and all.

NNVC currently sits at support at 1.50 area. it moved in 3 waves down like abc..... so it could hold firm here and go back up. or it could hang sideways a while as wave 4 and drop some more for wave 5. where would that go? likely to the next s/r point. where is that ? look at the chart.
see the 140 zone? a quadruple bottom (clue) on the 1 month/30 minute time frame chart. the 1 month /1 hour chart has less clear bottoms,longer tails, etc but the zone is 1.40 area. On this 30 minute /1 month chart the 200EMA is at ...1.40 and the 200 SMA is at 1.35

The larger wave structure from the 1.70 top looks more like an abc correction that went abc down,abc up, and now a down, maybe b shall go up in the next day and 'c' shall come back down again going into the week end. this would complete a larger ABC correction,and if it holds firm in the 1.40 area completing this larger ABC the full moon 'reversal' could trigger the start of the next wave thrust UP beyond 1.70 to higher highs.


some other pattern could develop that traders ought to be able to count.

Elliott wave counting should be an essential trading skill before ever trading real money.

calculating fibs (in your head)
seeing s/r points ,remembering them (all) in your head,seeing what indicators are telling you. etc

standard skill set for trading and investing. has to be there in your skill set.

gee-whiz t,
I was in at $1.20 then out because: "I bot it,gloated,and sold way too early,because I'm stupid". Sound familiar? But by all means, go ahead and gloat!
