    With the current state of the world you can't be to surprised by swings in price. This is a long term play in my humble opinion. We bought it and now just hold on for a while and see where it is at in 2021. If you need the cash that bad you should have stayed out of the market right now.

    Look at the one day chart, early large block selling brought the stock price down 10% and the trick was repeated late in the day. Overall, volume was light but stop losses were triggered. The price will easily rebound over time. I don't believe there is a selloff or a reason for a selloff, just "painting the board" to trigger stop losses.

    This is the technical battle to try to keep the 50 DMA from crossing the 200 DMA. This is a Golden Cross one of the most bullish signs! The cross seems inevitable and should cause the 20% + short holders to try to shift their position higher. Most of the volume is algorythmically guided trading bots whose activity and thus the volume should explode with the crossing. With US Silicas clear uptrend and significant short position, this may produce a pretty big Short Squeeze.

    Funny how US SILICA just can't hold the gain as we get closer to the closing bell.

    Commodity prices are down and flat. particularly oil, which often is used as a proxy for industrial activity. Basic materials and the oil patch are hated and mistrusted by Wall Street. So, no wonder there is low volume. Still I believe shorts are rightly nervous about holding their positions over the weekend. Fortunately the bar is set low, SLCA must only survive to ultimately thrive. Thus, I am long term bullish.

    US Silica is close to a Golden Cross as the 50 DMA is about to cross the 200 DMA stock price is comfortably above both with an approximately 20% short position. Further, there is little resistance above in the short term. This is a perfect setup for a Short Squeeze. Chartists and Technical traders take notice!

    OK so far this is underwhelming, but we have a very bullish Golden Cross and the stock price couldn't be pushed below $4.20 , so I next expect a test of $4.65 and if that can break thru we will test $4.78. I can understand the lack of enthusiasm for the whole sector given the relatively recent oil price war and aftermath. Fracking will continue and basic materials will be transported and supplied. Remember that we are here because SLCA was priced for bankruptcy and that isn't happening.

    Golden Cross for SLCA on 6 month chart seems inevitable. Stock price is well above 200 DMA, which is leveling and will rise only after the cross by the rising 50 DMA.
    50 and 200 DMA are with in one cent of each other. Volume has been low, but high volume days cause a big
    gain.
    I believe that the large short position is being slowly squeezed and the stock price has recovered due to the failure or it's competitors, and the view that in the long term SLCA will be the eventual industry leader.

    Last week, Tom spoke of Hi Crush, and what happened to them. I am not invested in this company. I will tell you that I lost over a quarter of a million dollars investing in Hi Crush. I am sure that you people will win in this investment. Hi Crush was real, but it was run by criminals. I really think that the odds are with you. When the chips are down, run it up for the next fight. I know I might sound stupid, but I want to tell the truth. You guys will wiI think. I should invest myself, but I am heartbroken, and I have to tell my wife that we have to sell our dream home. Call it quits for lack of logic. You guys will be ok. Cry for Hi Crush investors.

    the volume is up just 1 million. there are no sellers today and few of individual investors are covering....tomorrow is the deadline for the stimulus package. if any good news it will pump up all the stocks so if tomorrow is a good day than we can see 4.25 tomorrow.
