For anybody interested, Compton's "Colombian little brother" oil/gas play Petrolifera ( is making a move on good volume today. Up over 10% so far. Its chart looks very similar to Compton's. If you review both stock's performance since they massively diluted last fall, one shortly follows a move of the other, both down and up. I think its for two reasons. For one, its an indication of the market's appetite for risk for these plays and secondly speculators/bottom feeders probably trade in and out of these two all the time so when one moves up its time to sell that and buy the other. So I expect Compton to move shortly.
