Precious Metals Review

The precious metals are approaching a resolution to their current indifference and market sentiment. The answer to which direction they will move does not lie in the precious metals themselves, but in the underlying ETF’s that will ultimately reveal the hidden truth. There is a collection of market writers claiming that we are going down to […]

Springboard

Significant events in the stock and precious metals markets have taken place that support meaningful trend changes are taking place.

TRADE ALERT !! – Precious Metals

Everyone is aware that GOLD is down $14 and SILVER is down $0.25 today that is over 1% each, while the stock market is down about 1.5%. With GOLD at $1281, many are thinking that it has broken the $1290 support level meaning that it will go much lower. However, looking at the GLD etf, […]

Stock Market Shot Down

Today was truly a sad day for 295 families whose loved ones perished in yet another pointless tragic cowardly act of terrorism. Who could imagine that something like this can still happen after the example set by the Soviet Union in the 1980′s when they shot down the Korean airliner. A bigger question is why […]

Commodity Conundrum

There has been a substantial amount of positive news around the world recently about the excellent weather conditions that will result in an abundance of crops of all varieties such as cotton, grains, soybeans, sugar and more.

Summer Down-drums

As I wrote in the Blog on June 12  “What You Can’t See” and June 20 “Stock Market Warning Signs“, many cracks were appearing in the stock market that are sounding the down-drums of an approaching summer correction. The question remaining is whether this is a corrective wave or the start of something much bigger? Despite the very high […]

Stock Market Warning Signs

As mentioned in the prior blog, the stock market sentiment is at nose bleed levels, today we would like to add another sentiment indicator to that list. This indicator measures the most speculative type of sentiment in the form of stock option buying, also know as the Put/Call ratio. The current level of complacency that […]

What You Can’t See

Often, events take place in the markets  that are well publicized and can be game changing clues and possibly triggers for other factors that can shift the direction of trends.

Golds Time to Shine

In the previous blog we noted that precious metals broke lower from a triangle pattern despite numerous patterns showing support along with momentum divergences. Combined with all the negative sentiment, which now is extremely negative as the media seems to love bashing gold now, we felt the long term and short term indications were for […]

Moment of Truth is Approaching

The precious metals yesterday started with a positive opening that eventually began to fade to being slightly negative. In one way it appears to have tested the April 21 low and reversal day in certain gold etf’s, but we certainly would not want to see those lows breached. In terms of positive news for precious […]

Gold’s Turn

Isn’t it amazing how the central banker’s know exactly when to say something at exactly the point the respective market is at a critical juncture. This past Thursday it was the European Central Bank chief, Mario Draghi, who clearly tried to reverse the Euro’s strength by threatening more monetary stimulus. I believe this shallow ploy will […]

Gold Pointers

A significant change occurred this week that further adds strong support for the argument that precious metals may be beginning a significant move, yet there remains an abundance of commentary that suggest we will see prices below $1,000, citing all sorts of fundamental reasoning.

Silver Breakdown?

After the FOMC meeting yesterday, one can usually expect some volatility as sophisticated market participants whip the fear into investors in an attempt to gain an advantage or position.

Fear Trade

It appears the dreaded week of facing the month-end FOMC meeting is upon us, along with the expected volatility that may entail. It is expected that the Fed will once again reduce repurchases by another $10 billion and combine that with some confounding rhetoric that may yo-yo the markets before setting the trend. There was […]

Gotcha Fools

The stock market is a master at causing pain and confusion and certainly the last few months of sector rotation, combined with multiple stop-hunting episodes of taking out prior highs, only to reverse, has been one of the best executed and most frustrating events I have experience since the early eighties. Just as I feared […]

Trade Update: US Dollar Dilemma

12:30 pm EST The US dollar has broken out of it’s pennant to the upside and has some room to go higher. Typically this can have a negative effect on precious metals. If that does happen, then gold could go a bit lower, down to the $1250 area and subsequently our equity etf’s would suffer. […]
