First Colombia Gold Corp. FCGD
Despite the fact that it closed down on the day, our momentum alert from yesterday morning still provided us with plenty of opportunity to get in and out with a profit in the early part of the day.
After gapping up very slightly to .0044, the stock managed to ride the momentum as high as .007, allowing for gains of up to 59% in the first half-hour. Apart from possible gains right out of the gate, we can also extract a good lesson from what happened next. We saw what is called a “double-top”, which is when a stock bumps into resistance, pulls back, and makes another run at its high before losing momentum, which leads to a pullback like we saw as the day progressed.
We lost interest when the stock failed to hold support at our called level of .006. It is always a good idea to have a mental stop, falling below which point is an indicator that its time to exit. All things considered, FCGD turned out to be a good call, even if the window of opportunity wasn’t open for as long as we would’ve liked.
Medbox, Inc. MDBX

It is not often we see a Pinksheet stock trading in such a high PPS range, but MDBX managed to touch 38.40 on Tuesday on record volume, marking a move of 174% in roughly six weeks.
