Coal Sector Overview & Trade Setups

I'm noticing quite a few bullish trade setups developing in the left-for-dead coal stocks. This video covers the charts of some of my favorites, along with general entry levels (buy triggers) and price targets.

KOL (Coal Sector ETF) Long-term Trade Idea

KOL daily March 3rd With oil prices stabilizing & most coal stocks already deeply discounted from a 4+ yr severe bear market, KOL (Market Vectors Coal ETF), which holds companies with various types of exposure to the coal sector such as producers, railroads, etc.., looks poised for at least a 20% rally from current levels.
