yes

AXU is one of the best in my view too, a core holding.

It just retested the august 8 low today at the 6.50 area.  Lower support looks like 6.00-5.90 but below that is  a small pit stop at 5. and below that is nothing but a drop to 4 dollars. Hard to imagine such a fall. But maybe a stink bid around 5.90 for right now and an eye on 5 dollars   if the manipulation game  continues thru 2011.

Good call on AXU

Sheeple, your stink bid of $5.90 was very close, AXU bottomed at $5.73 briefly on Tuesday, Oct 5, spent a hour or two below $6.00 and turned up.  I added some at $6.55 on Sept 29, I should have waited and read your post!

Feb 22 Alexco Intersects Silver Mineralization to 47.6 oz/ton

Alexco Intersects Silver Mineralization to 26 Meters True Thickness at Bermingham Including Narrower Intervals to 47.6 Ounces Per Ton Over 1.88 Meters "...broad zones of significant silver mineralization (typically 3 to 10 ounces per ton (oz/ton) silver over 4 to 26 meters thick) have been traced with confidence along strike for more than 400 meters" Included in this release are intercepts, such as 10.36 meters (true width) of 363 grams per tonne (g/t) silver (10.6 oz/ton) that includes 1.88 meter (true width) at 1,634 g/t silver (47.65 oz/ton), which generally occur within much broader zones of anomalous geochemistry. Based on current experience in the Keno Hill area, this style of mineralization may represent a high level expression of deeper mineralization. full story: http://www.silverstrategies.com/story.aspx?local=h&id=82434

alexco is a good one

Now even with good vision for targets I still screw up. I must have been asleep that day AXU bottomed. I missed it. Then.....I sold my shares at 6.50 to break even per my basic strategy...and then AXU kept going up without me. and now its gone. 

and I have to wait for some great market  correction to maybe get back in around 6 or 6.50 . sometimes it doesnt pay to try and be too cute with price action.
