Real Estate Stats Show Big Wave Of Refinancing Is Coming

Current data released for the May Real Estate and Consumer Spending activity suggests a wave of refinancing is taking place – and not much else.  Pending home sales slipped to 69.  That level is 7.4 points below the lowest level in 2010 – at the height of the 2008-09 credit crisis that collapsed the global Real Estate values.  How big is this new low level in Pending home sales?  It’s HUGE.

It suggests the rate of sales in the US for Real Estate has collapsed beyond levels that were seen at the worst possible time in recent history (July 2010).  In fact, over the past 20 years, there has never been a time when the pending home sales index has collapsed below 74 to 75 – until today.

2008-2011 PENDING HOME SALES DATA

The sudden collapse of Pending Home Sales as a result of the COVID-19 virus event should not have come as any surprise to skilled technical investors.  Don’t misread this data – there are still homes selling in the US market, buyers are just being far more selective and discerning in regards to their purchases and timing.

Anyone who understands Supply and Demand theory knows that when price levels are perceived to be excessive, consumers slow their purchases considerably as the supply is determined to be overvalued in price.  This slowing of purchasing results in a supply glut that will eventually push price levels lower (attempting to attract more buyers).

It is this process of shifting perceptions in the Supply and Demand relationship that is likely taking place right now in the Real Estate market.  Low rates in combination with the COVID-19 virus are not prompting more sales of Real Estate right now.  Consumers simply don’t have the confidence (perception) that future price appreciation in Real Estate will be substantially based on the current market environment.  Thus, the perception of the value of Real Estate changes from optimism to caution.

2020 PENDING HOME SALES DATA

A large portion of the issue related to Real Estate is consumer confidence in their ability to earn real incomes and the stability of employment and opportunity related to their future.  The COVID-19 virus event has really disrupted a large portion of the US consumer market as well as the future expectations of consumers and spending habits.  This disruption is likely to take at least 12 to 24+ months to settle before any real bottom is likely to take place on a broad scale.

Real consumer spending has collapsed in April and May 2020.  Even though the US government has spent trillions attempting to support the US economy, the continued shutdown of cities and states has cut consumers’ jobs, incomes, and the need to go out and spend like normal.  Even though they may be saving some extra money throughout this time, the destruction to local and state economies/revenues is devastating.

MAY 2020 REAL CONSUMER SPENDING DATA

The one aspect of the low-interest rates that we do expect to peak soon is the refinance market.  Stronger homeowners with solid income opportunities are able to refinance at lower rates now and that activity seems to be spiking.  This is very similar to what happened in 2009-2011 where stronger consumers were able to take advantage of very low-interest rates and were able to shed the 5 to 7%+ mortgages and refinance at much lower levels.  Once these transactions peak, these homeowners will likely be settled in their homes for another 5 to 10+ years with new lower rates (unless something disrupts their financial/income situation).

MAY 2020 MORTGAGE REFINANCE INDEX

CONCLUDING THOUGHTS:

Combining all of this data into a consensus analysis for technical traders, we come to the conclusion that a wave of refinancing has likely peaked and that consumers are now in the early stage of attempting to understand what the recovery will look like going forward over the next 6 to 12+ months.  Add into the mix that we have a US Presidential election taking place in 6 months and the potential policy and tax changes that could take place as a result of this election and we have a real “consumer abyss” setting up over the next 6+ months.

With the Fed doing all they can to support the markets, the COVID-19 virus still causing shutdowns and other issues and the consumer waiting for some clear skies and positive expectations, the US and global economy could be stuck in a mode of greatly decreased consumer activity over the next 6 to 12+ months – which translates into a shift in perspective related to business creation, optimism, income/earnings and much more.  A dramatic shift in consumer expectations over a longer period of time could result in far more damaging longer-term issues for assets, state and local governments, and more.

Once the wave of refinancing is completed, we’ll have to see how the housing market data relates to increased consumer optimism.  At this point, we don’t believe anything is likely to change consumer attitudes until after the November 2020 elections.  Skilled technical traders should prepare for some really big price swings over the next 12+ months. This is the time for technical traders to shine with the setups and data that is being presented right now as well as in the future.

M2 Velocity Collapses – Could A Bottom In Capital Velocity Be Setting Up?

M2 Velocity is the measurement of capital circulating within the economy.  The faster capital circulates within the economy, the more that capital is being deployed within the economy to create output and opportunities for economic growth.  When M2 Velocity contracts, capital is being deployed in investments or assets that prevent that capital from further circulation within the economy – thus preventing further output and opportunity growth features.

The decline in M2 Velocity over the past 10+ years has been dramatic and consistent with the dramatic new zero US Federal Reserve interest rates initiated since just after the 2008 credit crisis market collapse.  It appears to our researchers that these extended periods of zero interest rates deflate the capability of money circulating throughout the economy and engaging in real growth opportunities for investment and capital inflation.

It also suggests that the US Federal Reserve, while attempting to support the US economy and global markets, maybe destructively engaging in policy that removes the capital function from the markets in a systematic process.  Eventually, something will break related to M2 Velocity and/or the global economy.  As more capital pours into less liquid assets and/or broader investment funds and Bonds, this process ties capital up into assets that take investment away from Main Street and the lower/middle class.  There is less capital available to support the ground level economy as more and more capital ends up buried in longer-term investment assets.

VELOCITY OF M2 MONEY STOCK

US FEDERAL FUNDS RATE CHART

We believe the collapse of the M2 Velocity rate is similar to a slow decline of economic capacity and output over a longer period of time.  We believe this process will likely end in a series of defaults and bankruptcies as a result of capital being stored away into longer-term assets and investments (pensions, investment funds, and other types of longer-term assets).  As this capital is taken away from the core engine of economic growth (main street and startups), the process of slowly starving the economy begins.

We believe we’ve already entered a period of decline that has lasted at least 15+ years and the “blowout process” that ends this decline will be somewhat cataclysmic.  One way or another, the function of capital must return to levels of activity that supports a ground-level engagement of economic growth and opportunity.  A healthy balance of capital available to all levels of society and deployed in means to support growth and opportunity is essential for the proper health and future advancement of global economies.

It appears that after 2008-09, the global economy disconnected from reality as investors began relying on institutional level investments and speculation in large scale assets instead of ground-level investments and core economic function.  This translates into a very euphoric mode for stocks and commodities where capital chases capital around the planet seeking out undervalued and opportunistic investments…  until…

Pay attention to what happens over the next 4 to 5+ years related to the COVID-19 virus event.  We believe this virus event could be a “monkey wrench” in the capabilities and functions of the global economy over the next 5+ years. Pay attention to what is really happening as capital plays the “dog chasing its tail” routine and the central banks attempt to stimulate economic activity by printing more and more money.  If you understand what we are trying to suggest in this article – printing more and more money at this stage of the game is like saying “diving our of the 20th-floor window is not enough – let’s go up to the 50th floor and give it a try”.

Hang tight, there are going to be some very interesting and big price swings over the next 4+ years in the US and global markets.  Skilled technical traders should prepare for the opportunity of a lifetime if they understand what to watch for and how to protect assets.

Gold Stocks Are Overbought. You Don’t Want Prices to Go Straight Up

Bill Powers of MiningStockEducation.com talks with a professional trader and market commentator Chris Vermeulen says gold stocks are overbought and need a breather which would be good for the overall upward trend.

Chris shares how he has and is trading the junior gold sector. He called the recent February 24th top in the gold stocks before the March crash. And now he is warning to a top in some gold-stock positions during an expected pullback.

Chris also addresses whether a lot of the gap-up’s in many gold stocks must be filled before they can run higher. This interview is full of advice from an experienced trader in the gold sector.

22:41 What makes your trading service unique?

As a technical analyst and trader since 1997, I have been through a few bull/bear market cycles in stocks and commodities. I believe I have a good pulse on the market and timing key turning points for investing and short-term swing traders. 2020 is an incredible year for traders and investors.  Don’t miss all the incredible trends and trade setups.

Subscribers of my Active ETF Swing Trading Newsletter had our trading accounts close at a new high watermark. We not only exited the equities market as it started to roll over in February, but we profited from the sell-off in a very controlled way with TLT bonds for a 20% gain. This week we closed out SPY ETF trade taking advantage of this bounce and entered a new trade with our account is at another all-time high value.

Ride my coattails as I navigate these financial markets and build wealth while others watch most of their retirement funds drop 35-65% during the next financial crisis.

Just think of this for a minute. While most of us have active trading accounts, what is even more important are our long-term investment and retirement accounts. Why? Because they are, in most cases, our largest store of wealth other than our homes, and if they are not protected during the next bear market, you could lose 25-50% or more of your net worth. The good news is we can preserve and even grow our long term capital when things get ugly like they are now and ill show you how and one of the best trades is one your financial advisor will never let you do because they do not make money from the trade/position.

If you have any type of retirement account and are looking for signals when to own equities, bonds, or cash, be sure to become a member of my Passive Long-Term ETF Investing Signals which we issued a new signal for subscribers.

Real Estate Showing Signs Of Collateral Damage – Part IV

This final part of our multi-part Real Estate article should help you understand what will likely transpire over the next 6+ months and how the unknown collateral damage may result in a “Double-Dip” price event taking place before August/September 2020.  In the first three parts of this article, we’ve attempted to highlight how the current COVID-19 virus event is different than any of the previous two crisis events.

We’ve also highlighted how consumer psychology will change over the next 12+ months as this event continues to unfold.  Most importantly, we attempted to highlight how the disruption in income, one of the biggest factors we should consider, for businesses, individuals, states, and governments will likely present a very real contraction event over the next 24+ months.

It is difficult to really explain how so many people fail to see what we are seeing in terms of our research.  Yes, the COVID-19 virus event will end at some point and the economy will begin to engage at growing rates.  Yet, the process of getting to that stage is likely to be full of unknown economic events over the next 24+ months.

Before we continue, be sure to opt-in to our free market trend signals 
before closing this page, so you don’t miss our next special report!

We’ve published articles suggesting our Super-Cycles and generational cycle research suggests we have entered a 10 to 20 year period of “unraveling and crisis processes” before a rebuilding phase can begin to take place.  If our research is correct, this unraveling and crisis phase will end near 2025~26.  This suggests we have another 5+ years of unknown collateral damage and unknown economic events

On February 24, 2020, we published this article which is very important because it warned our followers to prepare for a crisis event and to protect your portfolios with what to expect in the yield curve.

Our suggestion is to plan to set up your portfolio so you have sufficient cash in reserve in the event of an unexpected market decline.  We also suggest proper protection/hedge investments, such as precious metals and metals miner ETFs.

The reality is that mortgage delinquencies have already begun to skyrocket higher.  It is obvious to anyone paying attention that the lack of real income opportunities for individuals and businesses will translate into major economic collateral damage processes (crisis events) playing out over the next 12+ months. Depending on how the COVID-19 virus lingers throughout the world and the extent of the global shutdowns, we could be on the cusp of experiencing one of the biggest “revaluation events” in history.

This Bloomberg article summarizes our research and thinking nicely. Despite government support, we believe a massive revaluation event related to Real Estate and other assets is just starting to unfold.  Skilled technical traders will stay keenly aware of this potential event and position their portfolios to protect assets in the event of a sudden change in trend.

Price trends have just started to move lower based on this data from Realtor.com up to March 2020.  We believe the April and May data will show a substantial collapse in pricing levels – particularly in areas that continue to experience high COVID-19 issues.  This suggests California, Washington, New York, New Jersey, Florida, and other areas could experience a sustained price decline lasting more than 12to 24 months.

Florida Real Estate Price Trends

Washington Real Estate Price Trends

Watch as more populated areas (cities and larger regional areas) see a shift in consumer sentiment related to Real Estate price levels over the next 6+ months.  Once the consumers start shifting away from seeing Real Estate as an opportunity at any price and begin to watch the price levels drop, their psychology changes in terms of “when will the bottom happen?”.  Once this happens, the markets change into a Bear market trend for real estate as at-risk homeowners are placed under severe pricing pressure and markets continue to implode.

What this means for skilled technical traders is that opportunities will be endless over the next 12+ months to target real gains through skilled technical trades.  As capital shifts from one sector to another – avoiding risk and attempting to capitalize on the opportunity, skilled technical traders will be able to ride these trends and waves to create substantial gains.

Protect your portfolios now.  Don’t fall for the overly optimistic “follow the NQ higher” trade as risks are still excessive.  Wait for the right setups and determine how much risk you can afford to take on each trade. This is not the time to bet the farm on one big trade – wait for the right setups and wait for the collateral damage to play out.

It doesn’t matter what type of trader or investor you are – the move in Gold and the major global markets over the next 12+ months is going to be incredible.  Gold rallying to $2100, $3000 or higher means the US and global markets will continue to stay under some degree of pricing pressure throughout the next 12 to 24 months.  This means there are inherent risks in the markets that many traders are simply ignoring.

I keep pounding my fists on the table hoping people can see what I am trying to warn them about, which is the next major market crash, much worse than what we saw in March. See this article and video for a super easy to understand the scenario that is playing out as we speak.

If you want to learn more about the Super-Cycles and Generational Cycles that are taking place in the markets right now, please take a minute to review our Change Your Thinking – Change Your Future book detailing our research into these super-cycles.  It is almost impossible to believe that our researchers called this move back in March 2019 in our book and reports.

If you have been following me for a while, then you know my analysis and trades are the real deal. You also would know that I made over $1.9 million from the financial markets during the 2008 crash and recover into 2010. I have been semi-retired since the age of 27.  I continue to follow, predict, and trade the markets because its the ultimate business and my passion.

A bear market and its recovery can make your rich in a very short period. I believe this is about to happen again, so why not follow my super simple SP500 ETF investing strategy?  Trade with your investment account and become a stock market success with me!

I’m offering my investing signals for the next few years to those who want to know their investment capital is in the asset. Let face it; there is a time to be 100% long stocks, to own an inverse fund, and when to sit in cash. Your financial advisor would NEVER recommend a cash position, why because he is not allowed, he and his firm will not make money. Instead, they will keep you long stocks, with some bonds, and you will have to ride out the bear market rollercoaster again.

During the March Market crash, the BEST position was cash for short term trades. EVERY asset fell in value (stocks, bonds, gold, commodities) two months ago. Only one asset rallied, guess what it was? The USD dollar (CASH), moving to USD cash, gained a whopping 11% while most indexes and sectors fell 35-80+%. all you had to do was close all positions in your portfolio, and you would have looked like a hero, and that’s what I did with my account and members of my swing trading newsletter.

Follow me to success. Trade my most simple single ETF investing strategy and know when to own stocks, when to own an inverse ETF, or be in cash. For only $149 you can have the keys to the kingdom during a time when we are going to experience more historical price swings. This is as good as it gets, in my opinion.

Even if we don’t enter a new bear market this year, my investing signals will still nail the bull market and make you a ton of money. This is the most affordable insurance plan for your retirement account, so you don’t lose it – Period! Get Access Here

Signs Of Long Term Devaluation Real Estate

Continuing our research into the Real Estate market and our expectations over the next 6+ months or longer, we want to point out the disconnect between the current US stock market rally and the forward expectations related to the real economy.  Our researchers believe the current data from Realtor.com as well as forward expectations suggest a major shift related to “at-risk” real estate (both commercial and residential).

Unlike the 2008-09 credit crisis, the COVID-19 virus event is quickly disrupting consumer engagement within the global economy and disrupting spending activities.  Spending is shifting to online, fast food, and technology services for those that still have an income.  For those that have lost their jobs, spending is centered around surviving the COVID-19 virus event and hoping to see new opportunities and jobs when things open back up.

The coronavirus-fueled economic downturn is hitting homeowners hard. And the worst may be yet to come.

2008-09 REAL ESTATE PRICE COLLAPSE CHART

The biggest difference between 2008-09 and now is that the Real Estate sector is not the driving force behind the economic collapse – it is part of the collateral damage of the COVID-19 virus event related to failed consumer businesses, loss of jobs, disruption to the consumer economy and the destruction of income for many.  Yes, for a while, some people will be able to keep things together and “hold on” while hoping the economy comes back to life quickly.  Others won’t be so lucky.

The one aspect of all of this that people seem to fail to understand is the shift in consumer mentality related to the shifting economic environment.  Right now, consumers are dealing with the shock of job losses, the virus crisis itself and what the future US and global economy may look like.  Many people fail to understand that we really don’t know what the recovery process will become or when it will start.  Yes, we are making progress in trying to contain the COVID-19 virus, but the process of rebuilding the global economy to anywhere near the early 2020 levels is still many months away and full of potential collateral damage events.

MULTI-SECTOR PRICE TREND CHART (DAILY)

To help illustrate how the markets are reacting to the optimism of capital being poured into the global economy vs. the reality of the Consumer and Financial sectors, this chart highlights the SPY (BLUE) current price activity vs the NASDAQ 100 Financial Sector (GREEN) and the Consumer Discretionary sector (GOLD).  The SPY recently disconnected from a very close correlation to the other sectors near mid-April – about 2 weeks after the US Fed initiated the stimulus program.  The S&P, NASDAQ, and DOW Industrials have benefited from this disconnect by attracting new investments while the Consumer and Financial sectors have really started to come under moderate pricing pressure.

CONCLUDING THOUGHTS:

We believe this disconnect is related to the perceived reality of certain investors vs. other types of investors.  Institutional traders may be pouring capital into the US major market indexes while more conservative traders are waiting out the “unknowns” before jumping into the global markets.  We believe the extended volatility will create waves of opportunity as capital rotates between sectors attempting to find new opportunities for quick gains.

We also believe the unknown collateral damage processes will present very real risks over the next 6+ months as the markets seek out a real bottom.

A recent MarketWatch.com article suggests a new mortgage crisis in inevitable given the disruption to the US economy and consumer’s ability to earn income and service debt levels:

Pay attention.  These recent rallies in the US major indexes may not be painting a very clear picture of the risks still present in the US economy.  It is almost like speculation is driving prices higher while economic data suggest major collateral damage is still unknown.  We suggest reviewing this research article for more details:

How to Know Where S&P 500, Gold, and Bonds are Headed Next

I’ve been trading since 1997 and I’ve lived through numerous market events.  The one thing I teach my members is that risk is always a big part of trading and that’s why I structure all of my research and trading signals around “finding profits while reducing overall risks”.  Sure, there are fast profits to be made in these wild market swings, but those types of trades are extremely risky for most people – and I don’t know of anyone that wants to risk 50 or 60% of their assets on a few wild trades.

I’m offering you the chance to learn to profit, as I do with my own money, from market trends that I hand-pick for my own trading.  These are not wild, crazy trades – these are simple, effective, and slower types of trades that consistently build wealth.  I issue about 4 to 8+ trades a month for my members and adjust trade allocation based on my proprietary allocation algo – the objective is to gain profits while managing overall risks.

You don’t have to spend days or weeks trying to learn my system.  You don’t have to try to learn to make these decisions on your own or follow the markets 24/7 – I do that for you.  All you have to do is follow my research and trading signals and start benefiting from my research and trades.  My new mobile app makes it simple – download the app, sign in and everything is delivered to your phone, tablet, or desktop.

ADL Predictive Modeling Suggests US Stock Market Recovery In Q4 2020

Our research team has put together these charts of our ADL modeling system (Advanced Dynamic Learning), which shows a very clear upside price recovery starting to take place in late September or early October of this year. The ADL system also suggests the recovery may last through most of Q4:2020 before the markets collapse again in early 2021.

This predictive modeling system has become somewhat of a hit with our members and our followers.  We continue to get requests from members for selected ADL research related to Oil, the NASDAQ, or other symbols. The idea that we can attempt to see into the future with a certain degree of accuracy would certainly appeal to any trader/investor.

These updated ADL charts show that the US stock market may stay under some downward/sideways pricing pressure until last September 2020 – prompting a Q4 “Santa Rally”, before the markets appear to find a new extreme weakness in early 2021.  This suggests a brief uptick in consumer activity and economic engagement centered around the November 2020 elections and the 2020 Christmas Holiday season, then back to a more contracted economic mode in early 2021.

YM MONTHLY CHART

This YM Monthly chart highlights our ADL predictive modeling system’s results from a September 2019 origination point.  The one thing we want to add about the ADL system and the current Covid-19 virus event is that our ADL system attempts to map historic price activity into “DNA markers” and uses those DNA markers to attempt to identify and predict future price activity.  Obviously, there has been nothing like the Covid-19 virus event in recent history.  Thus, the ADL predictive modeling system is attempting to apply price DNA to an event that is unprecedented in 80+ years of price history.

Our researchers believe the ADL system will be able to pick up inherent price rotations and trends that relate to existing price DNA markers, yet the scale and scope of the price moves related to the current Covid-19 event may be much larger and more volatile than the ADL predictive modeling system is capable of indicating.  For example, take a look at the YM chart below and realize that price moved well beyond the ADL predictive price markers on this chart.  This is not an anomaly in price, this is an extreme moment in time that the ADL predictive modeling system is incapable of modeling accurately.

Thus, as we are showing you the ADL predictive modeling results, remember that extreme volatility related to the global market event could push the price 6% to 15% further away from these predicted price levels very easily as volatility increases.  Thus, a bottom shown on this chart near 24,000 with the ADL system could actually result in a price bottom near 22.460 or 20,400 (6% to 15% below the projected price level).

MONTHLY NQ CHART

This Monthly NQ chart shows that the tech-heavy NASDAQ may provide a more stable sideways market rotation over the next 6+ months than the S&P500 or the Dow Industrials.  The ADL system is suggesting that the NQ will likely move lower over the next 3+ months before recovering back to the 9,000 price range in September/October 2020.  Again, we see moderate weakness in price in early 2021 for a short period of time before price attempts to resettle near 9,200 in Q2:2021

This suggests the NASDAQ will continue to attract foreign investment and show more restrained price volatility than the Dow or the S&P.  Again, pay attention to the extreme volatility in the markets and how the price has extended 5% to 15%+ beyond the ADL predictive price levels.  Until the volatility subsides, continue to expect this extreme price rage volatility.

Our ADL system accurately predicted the month gold started a new bull market last year which Eric Sprott talked about. Also, we predicted the month oil was going to crash. while price hit our downside target correctly the price went way beyond that as we all know.

CONCLUDING THOUGHTS:

Overall, it appears September/October of 2020 is setting up for a moderate US stock market price recovery. Until then, it appears we have a bit of additional price rotation and volatility to contend with.  The interesting take-away from all of this is that our original expectation for a price bottom near or after June or July 2020 seems very accurate.

Technical traders should wait for the price to confirm these predictions before taking any actions.  This is a great market for skilled short term traders to find opportunities.  But it is also very dangerous for traders to chase trends.

The next few years are going to be full of incredible opportunities for skilled traders and investors.  Huge price swings, incredible revaluation events, and, eventually, an incredible upside rally will start again.

I’ve been trading since 1997 and I’ve lived through numerous market events.  The one thing I teach my members is that risk is always a big part of trading and that’s why I structure all of my research and trading signals around “finding profits while reducing overall risks”.  Sure, there are fast profits to be made in these wild market swings, but those types of trades are extremely risky for most people – and I don’t know of anyone that wants to risk 50 or 60% of their assets on a few wild trades.

I’m offering you the chance to learn to profit, as I do with my own money, from market trends that I hand-pick for my own trading.  These are not wild, crazy trades – these are simple, effective, and slower types of trades that consistently build wealth.  I issue about 4 to 8+ trades a month for my members and adjust trade allocation based on my proprietary allocation algo – the objective is to gain profits while managing overall risks.

You don’t have to spend days or weeks trying to learn my system.  You don’t have to try to learn to make these decisions on your own or follow the markets 24/7 – I do that for you.  All you have to do is follow my research and trading signals and start benefiting from my research and trades.  My new mobile app makes it simple – download the app, sign in and everything is delivered to your phone, tablet, or desktop.

I offer membership services for active traders, long-term investors, and wealth/asset managers.  Each of these services is driven by my own experience and my proprietary trading systems and modeling systems.  I have a small team of dedicated researchers and developers that do nothing but research and find trading signals for my members.  Our objective is to help you protect and grow your wealth.

Please take a moment to visit www.TheTechnicalTraders.com to learn more.  I can’t say it any better than this…  I want to help you create success while helping you protect and preserve your wealth – it’s that simple.

Crude Oil Collapses Overnight On Supply Glut And Fractal Analysis Say $7 is Support

Crude Oil continues to be a big mover as the supply glut has really pushed global capacity to its limits. Dozens of full tanker ships are anchored off the California and Singapore coastlines waiting for demand to pick up.  As long as the Virus shutdown persists globally, the supply gut will continue to wreak havoc on oil price levels into Summer.  As of early Monday morning, Crude Oil is lower by -17% to $14.10 as I type.

What most readers of our articles here don’t fully grasp is just how accurate our long-term predictions truly are and its why we link to past research posts that clearly prove our analysis can be deadly accurate.

You may remember our incredible research post from July 2019 which suggested Crude Oil would collapse in early 2020 calling out a potential $14 price target.

You may also like to review our warning from January 2019 related to Oil and Energy. We also predicted the gold bullion breakout and bull market to happen last year in April, May, or June, which is it, and we called that six months prior. Eric Sprott talked about our gold prediction and how much he liked out analysis on his podcast back then.

Our Adaptive Fibonacci price modeling system is suggesting a support zone near $9 to $18 may become a new sideways trading zone for Crude Oil.  We believe the downside risk to price levels is still excessive, but we also believe that true price valuation levels will keep Oil above $4 ppb as global demand will eventually recover.  Thus, we believe Oil will likely settle into a sideways price range between $9 and $18 as this virus event continues.  It may attempt brief moves outside these ranges but eventually, settle back into this range until true demand begins to accelerate higher.

DAILY CRUDE OIL CHART
ADAPTIVE FIBONACCI PRICE MODELING

This Daily Crude Oil Chart highlights our Adaptive Fibonacci Price Modeling system’s results and clearly shows the Support Zone.  We believe this Zone will become a new sideways price channel for Crude oil.

WEEKLY CRUDE OIL PRICE CHART – SUPPORT ZONE

This Weekly Crude Oil Price chart also highlights the Support Zone.  The potential for Crude prices to retest the $7 to $8 price range based on this massive supply glut is not out of the question.  We believe Crude Oil will settle into the Support Zone while attempting to establish a price bottom near $7 or $8 over the next 90+ days.  It may become an extended sideways bottom/flag formation as the bottom forms.

Our suggestion is to expect a more sideways bottom formation in Crude Oil over the next 60 to 90+ days.  The supply-side glut is really pushing price levels down to extreme levels.  Nothing will change that aspect of the market dynamic until we exit this Virus shut-down and demand starts to skyrocket higher.  That may come in August or later in the year.

We do believe Oil will attempt to find support above $7 to $8 ppb as we believe the supply glut will push oil prices to a “core value level” where global buyers will attempt to say “we can’t sell oil at anything less than $x.xx”.  We believe that level is $7 to $8 ppb overall.

As a technical analyst and trader since 1997, I have been through a few bull/bear market cycles in stocks and commodities. I believe I have a good pulse on the market and timing key turning points for investing and short-term swing traders. 2020 is an incredible year for traders and investors.  Don’t miss all the incredible trends and trade setups.

We all have trading accounts, and while our trading accounts are important, what is even more important are our long-term investment and retirement accounts. Why? Because they are, in most cases, our largest store of wealth other than our homes, and if they are not protected during a time like this, you could lose 25-50% or more of your entire net worth. The good news is we can preserve and even grow our long term capital when things get ugly like they are now and ill show you how and one of the best trades is one your financial advisor will never let you do because they do not make money from the trade/position.

If you have any type of retirement account and are looking for signals when to own equities, bonds, or cash, be sure to become a member of my Long-Term Investing Signals which we issued a new signal for subscribers.

Subscribers of my ETF trading newsletter had our trading accounts close at a new high watermark. We not only exited the equities market as it started to roll over in February, but we profited from the sell-off in a very controlled way with TLT bonds for a 20% gain. This week we closed out SPY ETF trade taking advantage of this bounce and entered a new trade with our account is at another all-time high value.

Ride my coattails as I navigate these financial markets and build wealth while others watch most of their retirement funds drop 35-65% during the next financial crisis.

Fibonacci Price Amplitude Arcs Predict Big Gold Breakout

Precious metals have become the focus of many researchers and traders recently.  Bank of America recently raised its target to $3000 for gold (source: https://www.bloomberg.com).  In December 2019, we published a research article suggesting precious metals were setting up a long-term pattern that should result in a big breakout to the upside for gold. Every trader must understand the consequences and market dynamics that may take place if Gold rallies above $2500 over the next few months.

An upside price breakout in precious metals that has been predicted by our researcher and dozens of other analysts suggests broad market concern related to future economic growth and global debt.  There is no other way to interpret the recent upside price move in Gold.  Back in 2015, Gold was trading near $1060 per ounce.  Currently, the price of gold has risen by nearly 64% and is trading near $1740.  If gold breaks higher on a big upside move (possibly to levels above $2100 initially), this would complete a 100% upside price move from 2015 lows and would set up an incredible opportunity for further upside price legs/advancements.

DAILY GOLD CHART
FIB ARCS & TESLA PRICE AMPLITUDE ARCS

This Daily Gold chart highlights our proprietary Fibonacci/Tesla Price Amplitude Arcs and our Adaptive Fibonacci Price Modeling system.  Although the chart may be a bit complicated to understand, pay attention to the GREEN ARC with the MAGENTA HIGHLIGHT near current price levels.  This is a key price resistance arc that is about to be broken/breached.  Once this level is breached with a new upside price advance, the $2100 price level becomes the immediate upside price target.

These Fibonacci Price Amplitude Arcs have become a very valuable tool for our researchers.  They act as price resistance/support bubbles/arcs.  When they align with price activity as price advances or declines, they provide very clear future price targets and levels where the price will run into resistance/support.  Currently, the Price Amplitude Arc is suggesting that once Gold rallies above $1775, the next leg higher should target the $2000 price level, then briefly stall before rallying to levels above $2100.

WEEKLY GOLD CHART

This Weekly Gold chart highlighting the longer-term price picture paints a very clear picture for Gold traders.  Once $1775 has been reached and the Magenta level has been broken, Gold should rally very quickly to levels above $2000, then target levels above $2100 within a few more weeks.

CONCLUDING THOUGHTS

Our researchers believe Gold will eventually target $3750 from research that was completed in 2019.  We suggest taking a moment to read our “Crazy Ivan” research post from early August 2019. It is critical to understand how the price setup originated near August 2019 and how it has matured recently.

It doesn’t matter what type of trader or investor you are – the move in Gold and the major global markets over the next 12+ months is going to be incredible.  Gold rallying to $2100, $3000 or higher means the US and global markets will continue to stay under some degree of pricing pressure throughout the next 12 to 24 months.  This means there are inherent risks in the markets that many traders are simply ignoring.

I keep pounding my fists on the table hoping people can see what I am trying to warn them about, which is the next major market crash, much worse than what we saw in March. See this article and video for a super easy to understand the scenario that is playing out as we speak.

If you want to learn more about the Super-Cycles and Generational Cycles that are taking place in the markets right now, please take a minute to review our Change Your Thinking – Change Your Future book detailing our research into these super-cycles.  It is almost impossible to believe that our researchers called this move back in March 2019 in our book and reports.

Gold on the Cusp of Reaching $2,100

Chris Vermeulen, CEO & Founder of Technical Traders Ltd., joins Tom Bodrovics at Palisade Radio to discuss the markets and Chris says, “This is the time to really be paying attention to the markets… It could be a bloodbath.”

Chris is seeing uncertainty that could bring equities lower as money is flowing into safe havens. The charts are showing that markets are approaching a major inflection point, which could go either way. Both gold and silver should rise rapidly once they get past resistance.

0:45 – Equities and safe havens.
2:00 – Market weakness – bear rally?
