What happens To The Global Economy If Oil Collapses – Part 2

In the first part of this research article, we shared our ADL predictive modeling research from July 10th, 2019 where we suggested that Oil prices would begin to collapse to levels near, or below, $40 throughout November and December of 2019.  Our ADL modeling system suggests that oil prices may continue lower well into early 2020 where the price is expected to target $25 to $30 in February~April 2020.

We believe this type of global commodity price collapse, essentially collapse in oil revenues for many global nations could present a very real crisis in our future.  Most of the oil-producing nations rely on stable oil prices to supply much-needed revenues/income to support current and future operations and essential services. If oil prices collapse to levels below $40, this decrease would represent a -40%, or more, collapse in oil revenues for these nations.  If oil prices fall to levels below $30, this would represent a -55%, or more, decrease in expected revenues.

We believe the ADL predictive modeling systems results, if accurate, represents a very real potential that the global capital markets and stock market may experience a major crisis event before the end of 2020.  This type of commodity collapse happened once before in history – nearly 10 years before the 1929 US stock market collapse and the slide in commodity prices continued in 1930 and beyond as an extended economic contraction pushed the US into an economic depression.

PRODUCER PRICE INDEX FOR ALL COMMODITIES FROM 1914 TO 1933

Take a look at these charts for comparison.  The first is a chart of the Producer Price Index for All Commodities from 1914 to 1933. Pay close attention to how commodity prices collapsed in 1921, approximately 9 to 10 years before the US stock market peak (1929) and commodities continue to slide lower.  This collapse in commodity prices relates to the consumer, agriculture, and industrial demand after WWI and setup a shift within the capital markets more focused on stock market speculation. The period between 1923 and 1929 resulted in a complete shift in the capital markets where farms, agriculture, and manufacturing levels decreased while urban areas, cities, and the stock market flourished – until it ended in 1929.

MONTHLY CRUDE OIL CHART

Now, take a look at this Monthly Crude Oil chart which highlights very similar types of price patterns over the span of about 10 years.  This strangely similar chart, in combination with the strangely similar set of circumstances related to farm, agriculture, and manufacturing as well as the shift of capital towards speculation in the US/Global stock market may be setting up another type of 1929 stock market peak event.

ASSETS IN MONEY MARKET ACCOUNTS

The shift in the capital markets is very clearly seen in the following chart – the Assets in Money Market Accounts chart.  One can clearly see that after the credit crisis in 2008-09, investors were not willing to participate in the Money Markets at levels prior to 2008.  In fact, for the entire period of 2009 through 2017, global investors stayed away from Money Markets and only recently began pouring capital back into the markets near late 2017 – when confidence increased.

Yet, this chart also shows a very clear “shift” in capital engagement which is very similar to what happened in the late 1920s.  At a time when manufacturing, agriculture and farm foreclosures were haunting the markets, investors poured capital in the stock market and speculative investments because these instruments were ripe with opportunity. The rally in the US stock market in the late 1920s became an opportunity that no one could resist.  Is the same thing happening right now in the US stock market?  Has a capital shift taken place that has global investors bumbling their way into the US stock market while trying to avoid/ignore obvious risks in local markets, manufacturing, and the global economy?

We believe the evidence is very clear for any investor willing to pull off the “bubble goggles” and take a good hard look at where we really are in the economic cycle.  Unless something dramatic changes in relation to global economic growth, credit market expectations and consumer economic participation, it seems obvious that we are inching our way towards a global stock market peak just like we did in 1929.

Even if a trade deal between the US and China were to happen today and eliminate all trade tariffs, would this change anything or would this simply pour fuel onto the “capital shift” fire that is already taking place with speculation reaching frothy levels?

Skilled technical traders should pay very close attention to Oil Prices and global economic factors while this “zombie-land melt-up” continues.  We believe this is not a healthy rally in the US stock market currently and is more similar to what happened in the last 1920s than anything we’ve seen over the past 80+ years.

In Part III of this research article, we’ll highlight some of the recent economic news that helps to further identify the complexity that makes up the current global stock market  “zombie-land”.

PART II – Fed Too Late To Prevent A Housing Market Crash?

In Part I of this research, we highlighted the Case-Shiller index of home affordability and how it relates to the US real estate market and consumer economic activity going forward.  We warned that once consumers start to shift away from an optimistic view of the economy, they typically shift into a protectionist stance where they attempt to protect wealth, assets and risk of loss while attempting to weather the economic storm.

We’ve seen this happen in 2008-09 as well as after the 9/11 attacks in the US in 2001.  The process is always somewhat similar.  Consumers start to react to pricing levels that are unaffordable and do so by trying to skimp on extraneous purchases like travel, new cars, credit card debt or other items that are not essential.  The other thing that happens is that the lower tier borrowers (the “at-risk borrowers”) typically begin to become delinquent on debts and fall behind on their mortgage payments.  This is how the process starts.

Once it starts, a shift takes place in the market that can be sudden or it can be transitional.  The shift is often termed as a change from a “Seller’s Market” to a “Buyer’s Market”.  This terminology is used to describe who is in control of the transaction and who has the advantage within the transaction.  When it is a “Seller’s Market”, buyers are typically offering to pay MORE for an item/home and the seller does not have to stress about trying to sell their property/items.  When it is a “Buyer’s Market”, the buyer is able to negotiate with the seller, demanding more concessions, lower prices, better deals and often has a wide variety of sellers wanting to court the buyer away from other property/items.  See how this shift in market dynamics can really change the way a marketplace works.

Now, lets take a look at how the US consumer is doing, overall, and how it might reflect a change in the marketplace if certain fundamental change.

This chart of the delinquency rates for All Loans and Leases in the US shows an increase in the levels of delinquencies starting near the 2016 year.  This aligns with the year that the US Fed began raising the Fed Funds Rate and is exactly 1 year after the Chinese initiated capital controls to attempt to prevent local currency (Chinese Yuan) from leaving the country and landing in other countries as foreign assets.  In 2015, the delinquency rate for All Loans and Leases was near 2004~05 levels (below  30,000).  Right now, the level is above the 2008 level near 36,000.

Consumer Credit Card Delinquencies are rising sharply.  Since 2016, the increase in sub-prime credit card delinquencies has skyrocketed above the peak levels of 2008-09 and continues to stay above 5.5%.

Meanwhile, those nasty Mortgage Backed Securities held outright are still massively higher than in 2008/09 based on this Fred data.  We are unsure why the data is reported as ZERO in 2008, but we can safely assume that a $1.55 Trillion risk factor in these MBS levels is not something that we would consider a minor risk factor.

Now, in the first part of this article, we promised to show you some data from our proprietary Fed modeling utility and to show you what we use to determine if the US Fed is ahead of the curve or behind it.  Here you go..

Our original research model of the US economy and the Fed Rate levels into the future are shown below.  You can see that our model suggests the US Fed, as of 2013, should have been raising rates towards the 1.5% level then gradually raising them further towards 2.0% to 2.25% before 2017.  This type of increase would have slowed the advance of the real estate price levels and moderated the expansion of the debt levels that are currently associated within this sector.  Instead, the US Fed was late in their efforts to raise rates – starting only in late 2016.

CONCLUDING THOUGHTS:

Based on our model, current rates should be dropping toward levels near 1.25% to 1.75% as US debt, GDP and population levels continue to increase.  In the 4 years after the 2020 election, rates should stay below 2% as the US Fed is somewhat trapped until GDP increases dramatically.  Our modeling system suggests there are only two ways the US Fed can attempt to raise rates above 2.5% in the future; a. the US GDP increases dramatically (increasing to levels more than 1.5x total US debt annually), or b. US debt is dramatically reduced while GDP continues to grow at moderate rates.

In the last part of this 3 part article series, we’ll show you more data that will allow you to prepare for the future events that may unfold and show you how to watch for some of these trigger events yourself.

If you are like me and have friends who know nothing about real estate like cops and techie programmers building spec homes and thinking its easy money, then you know the market is or has already topped. In fact, take a look at home sales month over month in Canada.

House Values Declining Month Over Month

Real Estate has already run through the price advance cycle and the price maturity cycle.  There is really only one cycle left to unfold at this point which is the “price revaluation cycle”.  This is where the opportunity lies with a select real estate ETF I am keeping my eye on to profit from falling real estate prices.

I can tell you that huge moves are starting to folding not only in real estate, but metals, stocks, and currencies. Some of these supercycles are going to last years.

PART II – Silver, Transports, and Dow Jones Index At Targets – What Direct Next?

As you can probably imagine, we’ve received a ton of emails and questions about our recent predictions for precious metals and the August 19 breakdown date in the global markets.  It seems everyone is reading our research posts and is curious about how to prepare for these moves and how we came up with these predictions months in advance.  In this second part of our metals & Aug 19 update post, we’ll try to highlight our expectations going into the weekend prior to the Aug 19 breakdown date (Monday).

In the first part of this research post, we highlighted what we believe is the imminent completion of the MID Leg 1 upside move in precious metals.  Our research continues to suggest that we are still setting up a major LEG 1 upside move which should be considered a larger Elliot Wave structure.  Within this Wave (Leg) 1 formation, a typical 5 wave structure is likely to continue forming.  Currently, we are creating the Wave 3 of the total of 5 waves that will complete a finished upside Wave (Leg 1).

If our analysis is correct, the peak that ends Wave 1 could be well above $2000 for Gold and well above $24 to $28 for Silver.  Then, of course, we’ll set up for a corrective Wave #2 before another, BIGGER, upside wave #3 sets up in precious metals.

Taking a look at this Weekly Silver chart, you may be able to see the waves as we see them.

_  The upside price move from Dec 14, 2015, to July 4, 2016 sets up the initial upside Wave 1 leg.

_  The low in November 2018 sets up the end of corrective wave B from the initial bottom on December 14, 2015.

_  This setup suggests we are currently starting a Wave 3 upside move which is usually 1.5x larger (or more) than Wave 1.

_  Keep in mind that we believe all of these “minor wave” formations are part of a much larger 5 wave structure that is setting up.

As you look at the Fibonacci diagram, above, remember that within each of those waves (1 through 5), a typical complex price wave formation (1, 3, 5, or other more complex wave formation) will set up to complete the broader wave formation.  Therefore, as you review the chart below, keep in mind that we believe everything originating from the bottom on December 14, 2015, till now is still part of the WAVE 1 formation on that Elliot Wave chart.  We are just getting started with this move, folks.

Silver Weekly Chart with Wave 1

The YELLOW arrows we’ve drawn on this Silver chart are our expectations for Silver over the next 6+ weeks and will potentially complete the initial upside minor wave 3 formation/ Leg 1.  We do understand that Elliot Wave counting can be difficult to understand, but please allow use to preface this research by suggesting that every larger wave consists of smaller waves.  And those smaller waves, consist of sets of even smaller waves.  And so it continues all the way down to sub-one-minute charts. The point we’re trying to make is that the $21 endpoint on this chart is very likely just the end of Wave 1, subwave 3, impulse move C which may target a total of D moves before reaching the end of subwave 3.  To put it in more simple terms, we are only about 20% into this upside move right now based on our expectations.

Why is the move in precious metals so important for our August 19 breakdown date prediction?  Because we would expect precious metals to begin a massive price rally if the global stock markets were expecting some type of major downside rotational event.  A more into metals is a safety play for global investors.  If something is happening in the markets and fear becomes more evident, then precious metals should start to rally.  This sets up an expectation that some type of price revaluation event is likely to take place in the near future.

Thus, the upside price moves in Gold and Silver align perfectly with our August 19 breakdown expectation.  The key to this, in our opinion, is that Silver has really started to skyrocket on large volume.  This creates “confluence” in the metals group that fear is now driving investors into the lesser Silver market in preparation for a price reversion move soon.

Weekly Transportation Index chart

This Transportation Index chart highlights the fact that investors believe the future 3 to 6 months in the global economy will be moderately slower and that transportation activity and revenues will likely continue to diminish.  The Transportation Index is an excellent measure of future global economic expectations that can be used as a “general market indicator” for future expectations.

Dow Jones Weekly Chart

This YM Weekly chart highlights the key Fibonacci price trigger level that has setup near $26,170.  This is the critical price level for the YM to actually generate a confirmed Bearish price trend (end of week closing bar price level) which may be the initial downside price trigger.  As of the creation of this chart, the YM price was above this Fibonacci trigger level.  But as of right now, the YM price is already below the Fibonacci trigger level and if the YM closes the week below this level, then we would have a new confirmed Bearish Fibonacci price trend.

CONCLUDING THOUGHTS:

The interesting fact behind all of this is that these predictions were made by our research team months before today.  Our Gold prediction was initiated near October 5, 2018.  Our August 19 breakdown date was initiated near May 2019 (originally as a July Topping pattern expectation and later revised to the August 19 breakdown date).  All of these predictions were created using our proprietary price modeling, predictive analysis tools, and advanced cycle analysis tools.

We find it absolutely incredible that we are able to make these types of predictions many months into the future and watch the markets do exactly what we suggested would happen.  Obviously, we hope you are finding value in our research posts and modeling systems as well?

If you have not already prepared for the August 19 breakdown date prediction, we would suggest that you consider how you would want to protect any open long positions at this time (headed into the weekend) and set up your portfolio for a broader market rotation and upside move in precious metals over the next 3+ months.  It is not too late to take action to protect your assets – even weeks past August 19, you can still act to take advantage of these bigger price moves.  We are simply urging you to plan and prepare for these moves as you read our research posts.

FORECASTED MOVES FOR GOLD, SILVER, MINERS, AND STOCK INDEXES

In early June I posted a detailed video explaining in showing the bottoming formation and gold and where to spot the breakout level, I also talked about crude oil reaching it upside target after a double bottom, and I called short term top in the SP 500 index. This was one of my premarket videos for members it gives you a good taste of what you can expect each and every morning before the Opening Bell. Watch Video Here.

I then posted a detailed report talking about where the next bull and bear markets are and how to identify them. This report focused on gold miners and the SP 500 index. My charts compared the 2008 market top and bear market along with the 2019 market prices today. See Comparison Charts Here.

On June 26th I posted that silver was likely to pause for a week or two before it took another run up on June 26. This played out perfectly as well and silver is now head up to our first key price target of $17. See Silver Price Cycle and Analysis.

More recently on July 16th, I warned that the next financial crisis (bear market) was scary close, possibly just a couple weeks away. The charts I posted will make you really start to worry. See Scary Bear Market Setup Charts.

Part II – Global Central Banks Kick Can Down The Road Again

As we continue to explore the events of the past 10 to 20+ years and how the global central banks continue to attempt to navigate through these difficult times, we want to take a few minutes to try to understand and explain how the capital that has exploded into the global markets has been deployed and used to chase returns, risk and opportunity and may continue to be deployed more efficiently going forward.

Read Part I of this series here: https://www.thetechnicaltraders.com/global-central-banks-move-to-keep-the-party-rolling-onward/

The recent news that the global central banks may begin a new round of stimulus and easing got us thinking – “what next?”.  Over the past 10 to 20+ years, global central banks have attempted to prompt an economic recovery that seems to slip past economic planners and we believe that is because core functions of the global economy are weaker than many expect.  We’re going to try to explore some of these factors and prepare traders for what may come in the future months.

Much of the capital that was dumped into the markets was deployed into the global equity markets as investments in emerging markets, capital markets, and the US stock market.  As much as everyone wants to think this capital went into infrastructure and other essential investments, much of it went into the only thing that was capable of generating an easy return with limited risk – the global stock market.

At first, after 2008, we saw an immediate jump in emerging markets.  This sector of the global economy had been hard hit by the collapse in 2008-09 and an incredible opportunity existed because of a price anomaly that was created near the bottom in 2009.  Emerging markets were recipients of some capital when the central banks began to infuse money into the system, but their equity markets were uniquely positioned for advancements because of the pricing levels after the crash.

The SPEM chart below highlights the recovery in the emerging market that took place almost immediately after the bottom formed in 2009.  We can clearly see the immediate price advance and the resulting sideways price action after 2011.  Once this sector recovered up to previous 2007 levels, there was really nothing else to push it much higher.

Traders should also take notice of the rally in 2016 and 2017.  This rally was based on forward expectations that renewed interest in emerging markets would result in increased returns.  These aligned with expectations resulting from the US Presidential election (2016) as well.  This price advance consisted of a +86% price advance from $23 to $42.  Could it happen again?

We believe the next phase of the global market recovery will result in a similar type of price advance after new lows are established in emerging markets.  Skilled technical traders should continue to plan for and prepare for this type of setup once emerging markets complete a process of exploring lower lows to form a bottom.  This process should complete just before the 2020 US presidential elections and will likely result in another price anomaly setup where the price is well below expected asset levels (extreme pessimism) and will set up as an incredible +40% to +80% upside potential as renewed optimism and the continued transitional process of the global economy persists.  Traders just need to wait for the setup – then execute their trades.

The continued process of how capital rolls from one environment to another in search of returns is something we have attempted to explain in detail over the past months.  We call it the “capital shift” process.  Our belief is that capital (cash) is always hunting for suitable investments in various forms and continues to shift from one environment (market segment) to another as opportunities (ROI) and risks (healthy investment environments) change.  So, think of capital as a migratory asset that continues to shift into and out of various segments of the market as opportunities and risks present themselves.

One of the biggest benefactors of the quantitative easing and central bank policies of the past 10+ years has been the US equity market.  Take a look at this NAS100 chart to see what we mean.

When we take into consideration the post 9/11 market rally in this NAS100 chart (highlighted by the blue rectangle) we can see that, at that time, the capital was focused away from the US markets because other foreign markets were better positioned in terms of ROI and risk.  Even though the US was engaging in moderate QE processes to recover from a moderate economic crisis, a price advance in the NAS100 was muted – nothing like the right side of this chart.

The post-2009 advance in the NAS100 is a completely different story.  The technology sector in the US had shifted away from a heavy risk factor and into a “unicorn” mode by 2012/2013.  This shift in the investment environment meant that global traders saw the US technology market (NAS100) and an excellent opportunity for capital deployment.  As more and more cash poured into the NAS100 chasing these gains, prices continued to skyrocket higher.  What next?

Unless the dynamics of this market shift away from expected gains or the US Dollar weakens dramatically, we believe the US stock market will continue to experience some volatility and continued price advancement while capital waits to see what happens throughout the rest of the global market.

We do believe the increased volatility of the past 2 years highlights an extended risk for rotation over the next 2+ years and we believe a move lower may be something we have to prepare for as the 6000 level has already been established as support.  Therefore, we are not suggesting the NAS100 will go straight up from here.  We are suggesting that unless something dramatic happens to change the economic environment, the US markets will continue to be viewed as opportunistic by global investors and that dips in price, even big ones, will likely respond with a nearly immediate recovery in price – even if a dip were to happen well below the 6000 level.

Once the economic environment shifts away from opportunity in the US, then all bets are off in terms of downside risk – if this ever happens.

Another factor that everyone must be aware of is Real Estate.  Recently, US real estate has continued to rally as rates have continued to maintain some level of affordability throughout most of the US.  Certain areas have gotten very un-affordable and these markets are already experiencing a pricing reversion where prices are declining as sellers attempt to attract buyers at high prices.  Overall, though, the health of the US real estate market is still moderately strong.

One thing that we would be concerned about is a perceptional shift away from buying if the US Fed and global central banks engage in new stimulus processes.  Consumers may view this process as a warning that some concern is underlying the efforts of the central banks and hold off on buying real estate while they wait to see what happens after the US 2020 elections.  We believe this may already be happening right now.

CONCLUDING THOUGHTS:

The REZ real estate ETF continues to push higher as pricing becomes an issue and sales levels continue to support a fairly active market.  We are concerned that a sharp change in perception could be taking place over the next 12+ months as fears of a change in US political leadership may thwart or diminish some forward expectations.  Investors need to pay attention to all aspects of the markets in order to prepare for future opportunities and price moves.

In Part III of this article, we’ll look into some of the fundamental elements of the US and global economies and how the past actions of the US Fed and global central banks may have set up the global markets for the bigger price rotations we are expecting over the next 12 to 24+ months.

Also, takes a look at today’s charts compared to the 2008 market top and I can’t warn enough that the next financial crisis (bear market) is scary close, possibly just a couple weeks away. See Scary Bear Market Setup Charts.

Part II – Metals and VIX Are About To Pull A “Crazy Ivan”

In the first part of this multi-part research post, we highlighted what we are calling a Crazy Ivan price event (borrowed from the movie Red October – (source).  The one thing we want you to take away from this article is that August 19, 2019, should be a major price inflection date where the price is very likely to begin a new downside price trend in the US and global stock markets.  This will likely push commodity prices to extremes and may very well push Gold and Silver into the stratosphere as fear and greed take hold across the planet.

Part I we highlighted how the VIX and the NQ are set up to react to this Crazy Ivan pricing event and how we believe many traders/investors are simply unaware of the potential for this type of large reversion price move.  We want to be clear, we believe the US markets will be somewhat immune from extended downside risks.  This does not mean there won’t be a downside price move and this does not mean that the markets won’t experience the Crazy Ivan reversion trend.  It will likely happen just as we are expecting, yet we believe the US stock markets will quickly recover from this move – like it has done many times in the past.

Our research that highlighted this August 19, 2019 date and the potential for what we are calling the Crazy Ivan price move is rooted in our super-cycle analysis, predictive modeling tools, and other specialized proprietary price modeling solutions and utilities.  We believe we’ve identified a key inflection point/date that will start what we are calling a “breakdown move” which will lead to the Crazy Ivan event throughout the globe.  As we stated in the first part of this article – we don’t know the exact composition of this event yet, but we do know that is should begin to happen near or after August 19, 2019.

Now, let’s get busy digging into the Gold and Silver charts for all our followers.

Gold 2-Week Chart Interval

This first Gold 2-Week chart highlights our Fibonacci price modeling tool and helps to show us where the price is targeting for the initial upside move from the April 21~24 Momentum Base pattern that we called back in January 2019.  We believe the current breakout upside price move will initially target the  $1597 level before briefly stalling, then rallying further to target the $1785 level or higher.

We believe the Crazy Ivan event could push Gold much higher than our projected levels under certain circumstances:

A. The US Dollar weakens throughout the initial process of the Crazy Ivan event

B.  Cryptos collapse as governments clamp down on rogue exchanges/currencies

C.  Massive credit and debt issues arise in China, Asia or the EU that threaten future economic output and operations

D.  Some type of crisis event unfolds where global investors believe war or conflict is imminent. (think Hong Kong, North Korea or somewhere in that general vicinity).

Without these additional impetuses in the metals market, we believe the price will follow our Crazy Ivan expectations (YELLOW LINES, below) fairly closely over the next 30 to 60+ days.

Silver Daily Chart Interval

Silver, on the other hand, is set up to break substantially higher based on the upside move we expect in Gold and the possibility that the Gold/Silver ratio will continue to contract to lower levels.  Recently, the Gold/Silver ratio fell from approximately 93 to 86.  This move relates the total number of ounces of Silver one must buy to equal the price of one ounce of Gold.  Currently, this level is back up to 89.5 as Gold has rallied faster than Silver has rallied.

But what happens when traders catch onto the fact that Gold and Silver will rally as this Crazy Ivan event takes place and that Silver is the true undervalued metal across the planet?  At the peak of Gold/Silver prices near April 2011, the Gold/Silver ratio was resting near 32 (yes you read that properly).  What would that look like on the Silver chart, below, if Gold continued to rally to levels above $2000?  It is really simple to find out.

$2000 (Gold per ounce) / 32 = $62.50 per ounce for Silver

What if Gold rallied a full 100% Fibonacci measured move from the previous 1999-2011 rally?  That peak level would be $2700 in Gold and the calculation is still simple.

$2700 (estimate Gold peak) / 32 = $84.375 per ounce for Silver.

Could it happen like this?  Yes, in theory, and reality it really could happen that Gold rallies to a level that equals a full 100% Fibonacci price extension and the ratio level falls to levels near 32.  If that were to happen, then these calculations would be accurate.

This is why we believe the Crazy Ivan event will become the catalyst for some really incredible trading opportunities and big price swings over the next 6 to 13+ months.

CONCLUDING THOUGHTS:

Our $21 upside price target in Silver is really muted compared to our long term price projections.  Yet everything hinges on this August 19, 2019 breakdown cycle date and what happens after that.  Our research suggests this current downside price move may have been a volatility explosion related to the lack of liquidity in the global markets and to hint that the markets are capable of being far more irrational for far longer than anyone expects.

We are only 9 days into August and we have already closed out 24.16% in gains from the falling SP500 using SDS, and the pop in gold using UGLD, and from the oversold bounce and rally in silver miners SIL.

We urge all of our followers to pay attention to our research, consider your options very closely and prepare for this next move by pulling some of your active portfolio away from risks and into more protective measures.  This Crazy Ivan event is just 10 days away and we really want to urge all of our followers to not under-estimate this event cycle.

WARNING SIGNS ABOUT GOLD, SILVER, MINERS, AND S&P 500

In early June I posted a detailed video explaining in showing the bottoming formation and gold and where to spot the breakout level, I also talked about crude oil reaching it upside target after a double bottom, and I called short term top in the SP 500 index. This was one of my premarket videos for members it gives you a good taste of what you can expect each and every morning before the Opening Bell. Watch Video Here.

I then posted a detailed report talking about where the next bull and bear markets are and how to identify them. This report focused mainly on the SP 500 index and the gold miners index. My charts compared the 2008 market top and bear market along with the 2019 market prices today. See Comparison Charts Here.

On June 26th I posted that silver was likely to pause for a week or two before it took another run up on June 26. This played out perfectly as well and silver is now head up to our first key price target of $17. See Silver Price Cycle and Analysis.

More recently on July 16th, I warned that the next financial crisis (bear market) was scary close, possibly just a couple weeks away. The charts I posted will make you really start to worry. See Scary Bear Market Setup Charts.
