And in other Cobalt mining news eCobalt Solutions (ECSIF) which was also developing a Cobalt mine in Idaho was acquired by Jervois Mining (JRVMF), an Australian company, after eCobalt ran out of funds to continue development. The Governor of Idaho is attempting to challenge the sale on National Security grounds stating we need to keep control of our own country’s Cobalt resources since they are critical for the development of batteries for electric vehicles.

Shares of eCobalt have tumbled from .44 in Jan ’19 to .22 before the acquisition. Where once I had 1000 shares of eCobalt I now have 1650 shares of Jervois at .14 per share, leaving me down a couple hundred. Oh, well, once in a while I take leave of my senses and take a small flyer on a penny stock and this is what happens. No big deal since I never invest much in them and every so often it becomes a fun ride.

I also still have a small position in CleanTeq, but honest to God, I make more money betting on football games than I do on penny stocks.

“GIVE US WHAT WE WANT RIGHT NOW AND DON’T YOU DARE CHARGE US FOR IT” … Amen, and why I’m supporting Marianne Williamson for president. Go ahead, jeer, but finally … someone who says it like it really is, just like Travis did above.

I see that Fibra Uno has a 90-day average volume of 53,000 shares. I get a bit skittish buying anything under 100,000. Do you have a minimum?

Hi Travis,

Can you please explain this statement “I don’t always follow stop loss signals, but often do ”
My question is , how do you control a stop loss order once you set it ?
Will it not trigger automatically once the stock breaches below the stop price and in which case you can’t STOP the order from being executed even if you wanted to ?

Thanks for all your work Travis, your insight and wisdom saves me so much pain. Reading your reports before I make my decisions always washes the FOMO and the panic away. Much appreciated, Will. Perth, Australia.

Hi Travis,

How do you decide what the stop loss trigger will be? Is it just what you are comfortable with? I am new at investing in stocks. Thanks.

“probably thanks to earpods”

I think you meant “AirPods”

EarPods are the regular wired earbuds, AirPods are the truly wireless ones.

I just tried to expand my position in FFXDF and discovered that it is restricted under rule 144a and cannot be purchased in US retail accounts. Why are you still recommending it?

Curious what the Gummies here use to buy foreign market stocks such as Modern Times Group (MTG-B)? I have Scotia itrade and Questrade accounts, both allow Canadian and USA markets but no other foreign markets.

This is a bit out of the blue – but what’s happening to Wrap Technologies – down 33.9% since it received a positive nod quite recently?
