L J International Inc. (NASDAQ:JADE)

Q: Hey Chip,  I'm wondering if smartrend is still bullish on JADE.  I'm not being sarcastic either, I took a good hit on Fri. and I am wondering if smartrend is still holding their bullish position.  I am still pretty new to the day trading and am trying my damndest to make the best decisions based on as much research and accumulation of knowledge I can find.  Scottrade offers no advising with an account so I'm counting on info from the likes of smartrend, second opinion weekly, and so forth for advising. I'm not the kind of guy that is going to be a pain in the ass, and am probably going to subscribe to smartrend but right now I'm thinking about Mon. morning at 9:30. If you have some info, great, if you don't that's cool too. Thanks, have a good one. Curtis A: Thanks for your question and your interest in SmarTrend.  The alerts that you see on Scottrade are usually a while after the initial trend alert was sent out, so if you are considering investing based on our system's alerts, you may want to consider signing up for a free trial or at least signing up for our morning call newsletter, where you can get some more recent information.  You can also check out the Community section of our site, which might give you more insight on technical analysis and how SmarTrend is doing.  Attached is a chart showing all of SmarTrend's calls on LJ Internationial Inc made during the last 18 months.  It looks like this recent drop was not quite enough to trigger SmarTrend's proprietary indicators as of yet, but a trend reversal could be on the way should this momentum persist.  If you do sign up, make sure you add the stock to your Watchlist and enable e-mail alerts, so that you will get an instant email when a trend change is detected.  Keep working on fundamental research as well, and I wish you success in your future trading. jade2
