Intraday market notes & observations – May 12

1:20pm ET: Coffee micro-roasters brewing up some terrific gains in recent days. Hitting new highs today on heavier than average volume: BCCI (+40%), HCEI (+100%), JCOF (+60%). Note that all of these stocks are speculative and all trade well under a buck. Volumes on these issues have been negligle, that is, until recently. Perhaps there’s some consolidation ahead..?

Below is a chart of what technically looks to be the best bean in the bag, Javalution (JCOF). The chart shows major support/resistance levels at the 20 cent multiples with minor support/resistance at the odd ten cent levels. [Note that the price scale on this chart (and with all of my charts) is logarithmic.]
