NASDAQ Sets Up A Massive Head-n-Shoulders

Our research team has identified a potential trade setup in QID that correlates to our ongoing analysis of the US stock market and our Advanced Fibonacci Price Amplitude Arcs.  We believe a major price inflection point is setting up in the US stock market within the next 48 hours that may prompt a price trend reversal in the NASDAQ and other major US stock market indexes.  This pattern correlates to a much longer-term Head-n-Shoulders pattern that is also setting up in the SPY.

Our belief is that technical traders should wait for confirmation of this setup before entering any new trades, yet we believe we will have confirmation of this setup within 3 to 5 trading days – given the urgency of the setup with our Fibonacci Price Amplitude Arcs.  We believe a right-shoulder could be forming as the US stock markets push a bit higher in early trading this week. We believe the Fibonacci Price Acr’s are suggesting a major inflection point is preparing to disrupt price trends.

Just to be clear, this is a prediction, and as technical traders, we wait for confirmation before trading. This is the #1 issue with most traders. They jump the gun and buy into a trade idea before the price chart has confirmed and they lose a lot of money. Follow price, don’ try to lead it.

If our analysis is correct, we may see a fairly strong trend reversal over the next 5+ trading days as this pattern/setup complete and confirm.

DAILY QID (INVERSE NASDAQ ETF) CHART

This Daily QID chart highlights the major RED Fibonacci Price Amplitude Arc that is setting up as well as the more narrow MAGENTA Arc.  Both of these arcs are aligning very close to one another.  Additionally, the RSI suggests any trend reversal to the upside could prompt a moderately large upside price trend.

NAS100 DAILY CHART

This NAS100 Daily chart highlights the right-shoulder of a longer-term price pattern that we believe may be ending soon.  If our analysis is correct, the right-side of the Head-n-Shoulders pattern may set up near the PURPLE Arc on this chart (or soon after) – prompting a broad downside price trend in the US stock market.

LONGER-TERM WEEKLY SPY CHART

This longer-term Weekly SPY chart shows the Head-n-Shoulder setup that is forming in the SPY.  Although the right side of the shoulder is rather short and volatile, we believe this setup may be a fairly strong potential pattern warning of a stronger downside price trend that may initiate soon.  Obviously, 240 (previous lows) would be an easy objective in the SPY if this happens.

CONCLUDING THOUGHTS

Current price levels suggest a resistance level has been reached.  If this resistance level persists in containing price and creates a Head-n-Shoulders pattern, there is a very strong likelihood that a broader downside price move may present real opportunities for profits.  Skilled traders should prepare for this potential and watch for confirmation of this pattern/setup.

The Big Move In Silver May Be Right Now

For many years now, metals traders and enthusiasts have been patiently waiting for the move in Silver that we feel its eventually going to happen.

There is almost a ritual process in the metals market that takes place when a crisis happens.  We’ve written about this in a past article and we’ve highlighted how we believe Silver is one of the absolute best opportunities if/once it breaks out.  It goes something like this…

A.  Silver is often an overlooked “little cousin” to other precious metals like Gold and Platinum.  Many traders would rather trade/acquire Gold vs. Silver.

B.  When a crisis begins to happen, both Gold and Silver tend to collapse an initially as the shock to the markets translates into sales of precious metals to improve cash/margin requirements.

C.  As the crisis continues to unfold, Gold will typically begin a sustained upside price move over many months where Silver may move very little to the upside.  This creates a massive peak in the Gold to Silver ratio.

D.  Then, suddenly Silver starts to rally upward faster than Gold and the Gold to Silver ratio begins to collapse.  Gold continues to move higher throughout this process, but Silver is already rallying much stronger than Gold.

This is the breakout move in Silver that we believe may be happening right now and may continue for many months or years into the future.  Allow us to explain this setup in more detail.

SILVER DAILY CHART

First, we believe an extended FLAG formation in Silver has recently completed and we believe this price wedge type of pattern will prompt a renewed upside price trend in Silver prices over the longer-term given a number of factors that many skilled traders have failed to appreciate.  Technically, a price advance from current levels to levels above $21 will prompt a big shift in thinking for Silver traders.  These new highs will suggest Silver has finally broken above the previous $20 price highs and could be skyrocketing higher as it did in 2010~12.

SILVER WEEKLY CHART

This Weekly Silver chart shows exactly why we believe this Flag Breakout could prompt a major upside price rally in both Gold and Silver.  The downside price rotation that took place after the February 2020 global COVID-19 virus event prompted a vast rethinking of value and risk.  While Gold found support fairly early, suggesting skilled traders were moving away from risk and into safe-havens, Silver has stalled below $16.50 recently.  We believe this ”second-class” status for Silver is about to end in a very big way.  Follow along.

GOLD TO SILVER RATIO WEEKLY CHART

The Flag formation setup on the Daily and Weekly Silver charts is almost like the Starting Line of an incredible upward price event.  The COVID-19 price collapse did what it was supposed to do, deflate expectations related to future market valuations and shift investor consideration of Metals for a short period of time.  As risks accelerated and equity trades were put at risk, metals sold off as traders liquidated metals positions to cover risk exposure in Equities or another market.  Now that the risk event has taken place and metals are transitioning back towards a safe-haven solution again, a new process begins – the upside advance in Gold and Silver which takes the Gold To Silver Ratio back down below 65~75.

Looking back at the 2008~09 Credit Crisis and the current COVID-19 crisis event, we can see Gold is already trading at levels which are very high compared to the peak levels in 2011 (almost 4 years after the 2008 Credit Crisis).  We can also see that the Gold: Silver Ratio has reached the 120 level on this chart – which is incredibly nearly 41% higher than the peak levels in 2008.  Comparatively, the Gold:Silver Ratio collapsed 60% from 2008 to 2011 while Gold skyrocketed from $720 to $1870 (259%).  A similar move from current Gold price levels would suggest Gold could rally well above $4,500 over the next 2+ years.

Now, how does this relate to Silver?  In 2008, Silver was trading near $9.75 just before the peak in the Gold:Silver Ratio was reached.  By 2011, Silver had reached levels above $48.25 – an incredible 495% price increase.  This suggests Silver could rally from current levels, near $15.75 to levels above $78 (or higher) if our analysis is correct.  What are we expecting to happen next?

If our research is correct, we will see an upside price move in Silver to levels above $21 to $23 over the next three to five+ weeks.  At the same time, Gold will likely rally to levels near $1999~$2100.  This simultaneous price rally in both Gold and Silver should prompt the Gold:Silver ratio to stay rather elevated.  But the next move in Silver, above $25~$30, should push the Gold:Silver Ratio below 100 from current high levels – which would collapse the RSI level showing us the longer-term price rally in Gold and Silver has confirmed.

Every time the Gold:Silver Ratio collapses substantially, more than 35 to 40 RSI points after the Gold:Silver Ratio reached new high levels, this indicates a price rally in Gold and Silver is beginning.  You can see how often this setup qualifies and confirms over the past 30+ years on the chart below.  We’ve highlighted the uptrends in Silver in GREEN.

LONG-TERM HISTORICAL GOLD TO SILVER RATIO WEEKLY CHART

CONCLUDING THOUGHTS:

We believe the current FLAG formation breakout in Silver is the beginning of a much larger upside price trend that is just beginning.  Over the next few weeks and months, we believe Silver will begin an upside price advance that could last 12 to 24+ months and present an incredible opportunity for technical traders who follow price action.

How to Trade Gold, Silver & Precious Metal Miners

How to trade Gold and other precious metals related investments is not that complex. But you must be willing to wait for price to provide low risk entry points before getting involved. Precious metals are like any other investment in respect to trading and investing in them. There are times when you should be long, times to be in cash and times to be short (benefit from falling prices).

Since 2011 when gold and silver started another major bull market correction the best position has been to move to cash or sell/write options against your positions to protect your investment until the next trend resumes.

If you take a look at the chart below of gold you will notice that in 2008 we had a similar breakdown in price which purged the market of investors who where long gold. And if you compare the last two breakdowns they look very much the same. If price holds true then much higher prices are likely to unfold at the end of 2013.

The key here is for the price to move and hold above the major resistance line. If it can do that then we are looking at a possible breakout to $2600 – $3500 gold. With that being said gold and silver may just be starting a bear market. Depending what the price of gold does when my resistance level is touched, my outlook may change from bullish to bearish.

Also with last weeks economic numbers getting better in the USA I do have concerns that gold may be starting a bear market but we will not know for several more months yet.

How to Trade Gold Daily Technical Chart:

Major technical damage has been done to the chart of gold. This can be seen as bullish or bearish price action but until price and volume pattern unfolds which puts the odds on the bullish or bearish side I remain neutral.

How to Trade Silver Daily Technical Chart:

Silver is in the same position as gold. The question is if this is a shakeout or breakdown…

LongTermSilver

 

How to Trade Gold Mining Stocks Monthly Chart:

Gold mining stocks broke down a couple months ago and continue to sell off. If precious metals continue to move lower then mining stocks will continue their journey down. The chart below made in February and it has in most part played out as expected. While I do not try to pick bottoms (catch falling knives) I do like to watch for them so I am prepared for a new position when the time and chart become bullish.

LongTermMiners

 

How to Trade Gold, Silver and Mining Stocks Conclusion:

In short, precious metals continue to be in a down trend. While they look to be trying to bottom it is important to remember that the largest moves take place in the last 10% of a trend. So we may be close to a bottom but there could be sharply lower prices yet.

The time will come when another major buy or short signal forms and when it does we will be getting involved. The exciting part is that it could be just around the corner.

Mid-Week GLD, SLV, UNG & USO Trading Charts

Commodities and stocks have been on fire the past two weeks and I think it just may be time for things to take a breather. While I continue to stay long, taking some money off the table to lock in profits is a safe play.

Just from a quick glance at the charts we can tell the odds are pointing to some type of pause or pullback in the coming days. I figure any day now we could see some profit taking.

Gold ETF Trading – GLD

The Gold ETF is one of my favorite trading vehicles. Using simple trend lines and looking at the recent price action you can see that the price of gold is looking ready for a pullback. Buying at this level is chasing and that generally means you buy at the high and panic out at the low.

Silver ETF Trading – SLV

The Silver ETF looks to be in the same boat as gold. I expect to see some sideways price action or a pullback.

Natural Gas ETF Trading – UNG

The Natural Gas ETF sure has given everyone a wild ride in the past 6 months. The bear market is still in place which can be seen on the daily chart. So far this week the price has broken down and trading at the $11 support level. This fund could generate a buy or sell signal with my trading model in the coming days so I am waiting for a clear entry and exit point before jumping on the gas wagon.

Crude Oil ETF Trading – USO

The Crude Oil ETF has broken above its resistance trend line this week but still struggling to move above the August high. Volume is declining while the price rises which is a bearish indicator. USO looks ready for some type of a pullback as it digests this breakout before moving higher.

Mid-Week GLD, SLV, UNG, USO ETF Trading Report

What does the general public hear and think about the stock market?
From recent emails, local financial news shows, family, friends etc… all I am hearing is how strong the market is. Indexes are making new yearly highs and company earnings are better than expected this quarter. Sounds like all we need to do is buy and life will be great!

Well in my opinion the market is the perfect tool for misguiding and frustrating the general public. All my indicators are telling me we need more of a correction before rallying much higher. The market (smart money) generally anticipates good and bad news several weeks if not a month in advance. So the question is:

Are company earnings already priced into the market?

Is all this positive market coverage getting the general public to buy up here at this possible market top?

The answer is, only time will tell. No one knows for sure what the market is going to do but short term moves can be predicted with relatively high accuracy.

Don’t get me wrong, I am still bullish on the market but with all this good news becoming public information you have to wonder what is next. I am still long the market but trimming my positions to lock in profits and still stay in the game.
