$VTNR .50 cents bounce today from 8.25 to 8.75 ah. Nice to see but was a rough morning to be sure. So many penny flippers every day. Need a nice run to flush them out. This should run back over 11 as it did as oil rises. These folks are running a huge refinery once owned by Shell. Er will be a big factor imo. Eventually it all comes back to that. No reason to pump just facts.

Energy has been hot and $VTNR is on my list to watch. Looking for a 50 MA bounce here to higher levels. Need to see bounce before taking the trade. Good setup as MACD and TTM showing bears losing control.

User Image BottomFishingCharts Posted - 3 hours ago

Even though $VTNR's daily volumes are barely cracking 1m per day its price is slowly running out of real estate in both wedge patterns on the hourly chart & it's going to be forced into a directional change as it enters a #bullish Bollinger band squeeze. Continuous bounces off an up trending trend line could be giving us a directional clue. STO/RSI momo is powering and my take it to the resistance top trend lines. We'll just have to wait an see if it has the juice to pop 'n top them. #BottomFishing🎣

$VTNR Accumulated another 10,000 shares today-now holding about 90k shares. I know this will go up and down until revenue starts pouring in-sucks but will have to live with that as Im long here-at last 2 years. Also look out for #EEENF. Penny stock been green 5 days in a row--it's another oil co stock..Also bought more #MMAT. I know many here lost $ on that but at this price-I think it's a great loading spot for a long hold-def. not for penny flippers. Urge all to do their own dd and believe no one on ST, myself included..

$VTNR 6% down since our short alert. Tried to warn you! Got to love the UltraAlgo..

User Image SECsMostWanted Posted - 15 hours ago

$VTNR this might actually be a good short. It’s shown 0 relative strength and now sits just above its 50day. If it closes below, it would also represent a very obvious H&S. The bottom could fall out.

$VTNR like I said earlier oil demand is up and we can see the prices at the pump. These are facts. Some people commenting here that are negative never mention facts to back up their position. Just block them like I do and move on. Some people just want to watch the world burn. Pray for them.😇
