Junior Gold Miners Setting Up For Another Rally

Our recent research suggests the US stock market may be entering a period of volatility that may include a broad market rotation/reversion event.  We believe this volatility event could begin to happen anytime over the next 10 to 30+ days.  The rally in the US stock market ending 2019 and carrying into 2020 appears to be setting up a “rally to a peak” type of price pattern. Please take a minute to review the following articles we’ve posted recently about this topic and how it relates to opportunities in Metals/Miners.

January 20, 2020: Q4 EARNINGS SETUP THE RALLY TO THE PEAK

January 15, 2020: SHIFTING UNDERCURRENTS IN THE US STOCK MARKET

The potential for a volatility spike resulting from a price peak formation (see the January 20, 2020 article above), could setup a moderately broad downside price reversion event that may prompt a 5% to 8%+ downside price correction.  If that happens, as we expect, over the next 5 to 10+ trading days, then precious metals and miners should explode to the upside as a “risk-on” trade moves capital into the metals market.

We believe the Miners (both Gold and Silver) are setting up for an explosive upside price move over the next 60+ days.  The reality of the global markets is that it appears to be setting up in a very similar manner to what happened in the late 1990s.  The rally in Rhodium, Palladium and Platinum are similar to the rally that took place in the late 1990s – just before the real explosion in Gold and Silver began in 2003-04.  The rally in Gold and Silver took place after a collapse event in 2000-2001 and setup a massive upside price event for Precious Metals and Miners.  You can read more of our research below.

GDXJ 10 MINUTE CHART (1 MONTH DATA VIEW)

If we start with the shortest time frame analysis of the gold miners you can see a lot of measured moves based on technical analysis that has taken place in the last month of trading and it’s not far from over based on this chart.

DAILY GDXJ CHART

The setup in GDXJ is that Junior Gold Miners should move 15% to 25% higher over the next 30+ days on a price reversion event in the US stock market.  We believe the upside target for GDXJ is $46 to $51 from the current levels near $41.50.  After a brief pause near $50, GDXJ should attempt another rally to levels above $65 to $70 sometime near June~August 2020.

WEEKLY GDXJ CHART

This Weekly GDXJ chart highlights what we believe will happen over the next 6+ months.  The opportunity for skilled traders at this level is incredible.  Support near $35.50 has recently been retested and held.  Any entry below the $40 level is an incredible opportunity to catch this upside price move.

CONCLUDING THOUGHTS:

We believe the US stock market will enter a period of volatility over the next 30~60+ days and that volatility will push metals and miners higher into this next wave of advancement.  Be prepared for Silver and Silver Miners to rally more than Gold/Gold Miners (potentially).  We’ve highlighted how Silver tends to rally a few months behind Gold when a Risk-On trade sets up.

As a technical analysis and trader since 1997 I have been through a few bull/bear market cycles, I have a good pulse on the market and timing key turning points for both short-term swing trading and long-term investment capital. The opportunities are massive/life-changing if handled properly.

2020 is going to be full of incredible trading opportunities for skilled traders.  We’ve already set up a number of active trading triggers for our members to profit from the early moves in 2020.  This Gold Miners trade is an incredible opportunity for anyone skilled enough to take advantage of it.

Platinum Breaks $1000 On Big Rally And What is Next

Certain precious metals, Gold, Silver, and Platinum, have shown moderate upside price trending over the past 20+ months while Rhodium and Palladium have skyrocketed higher.  These more precious metals, Rhodium and Palladium, have many industrial and consumer uses.  Rhodium is used in electronics and plating and Palladium is used in a variety of consumer products from Automobiles to Medical Devices.

Still, the rally in Rhodium (over 300%) and Palladium (over 70%) over the past 12 months has been more than impressive.  Whey are we not seeing a similar rally in Gold, Silver, and Platinum yet?

The reality is that we are seeing a similar price rally in Rhodium and Platinum as we saw in 2004~2008 – just prior to the Global Credit Crisis.  Take a look at the composite chart below.

There are few interesting components of these charts that show how precious metals reacted throughout the 1997~2000 rally and the 2005~2008 rally – both of these events set up a bubble burst reversion event.

_  Rhodium rallied extensively in 2005 through 2008 – peaking at levels near $10,000 just before the credit crisis bubble burst.

_  Palladium rallied a moderate amount in 2005 through 2007, then sold off as the bubble burst.  Then rallied to over $800 after fear set into the markets.

_  Platinum began a rally in early 2000 that propelled it to a peak in 2007 (just before the peak in the US stock market).  Since then wild price rotation and a moderate reversion to levels near $1000 have set up a massive basing pattern.

_  Gold, like Platinum, began an incredible upside price rally in early 2000 and continued to rally till the peak in 2010

_  Palladium, being an industrial use metal and being deployed in a variety of advanced technology, would tend to rally as demand for technology products and consumer products associated with Palladium components are in very high demand.  Much like what happened in 1998~2000.

_  Rhodium’s rally is very likely related to manufacturing and institutional demand across the globe.

_  Platinum and Gold may be set up for an incredible upside price rally should Rhodium and Palladium extend their rallies even further.

_  We find it incredibly fascinating that Rhodium rallied nearly 1000% from 2004 to 2009 – just before the peak in the global stock markets and the start of the Global Credit Crisis.

_  We also find it incredibly interesting that Palladium rallied over 1000% from 1995 to 1999 – just before the DOT COM bubble burst.

_  We believe the rallies in Rhodium and Palladium are early warning signs that can’t be overlooked by skilled traders/investors.

The recent upside breakout of Platinum falls into the same category as the late 1998 Platinum rally as the valuations of the DOT COM rally began to overextend.  We believe this shift into high-value risk protection began to take place as investor’s fear levels increased in the late 1990s.  As we suggested recently – a shifting of the undercurrents in the markets.

The current rally above $1000 in Platinum suggests a new upside price rally is taking place after an extensive basing pattern (2015 to now).  Should Platinum rally above $1200 per ounce, a new technical bullish trend will be confirmed.

Our proprietary Fibonacci price modeling system is suggesting price targets on the Weekly chart of $1090, $1130 and $1215.  Pay very close attention to this rally in Platinum as it could become the catalyst for a much bigger move in many of the major precious metals.  The Platinum rally in 1997 began an upward price advance of nearly 600% over the next 10 years.  A similar move today would put Platinum near $6000~$7000 – Gold would be near $3200+ should this happen.

Our belief is that the rally in Platinum will continue as valuations in the global markets push higher.  Fear is creeping back into the markets as investors are expecting some type of price reversion event.  We believe the current setup is very similar to a mix of the events we’ve highlighted in the composite metals chart, above.  A mix of what happened in 1995~1997 and a mix of what happened in 2005~2007.  Platinum and Gold are acting very similar to what happened in 1995~1997.  Palladium and Rhodium are a mix of 1995~1997 and 2005~2007.  Overall, the rallies in Rhodium and Palladium are strangely similar to “peak everything” bubbles.

Watch how this plays out over the next 12+ months.  Gold and Silver should begin to move higher as Platinum extends the rally.  Fear is starting to re-enter the markets as traders and investors extend their belief that a reversion event is setting up.

Silver Traders Big Trend Analysis – Part 2

This, the second part of our Silver research article suggesting Silver may be forming a massive price base in preparation for an explosive upside move, will continue from Part I of this research series.

Our research team believes Silver is setting up in a price pattern that may already be “ripe” for an explosive upside move.  Our researchers have poured over the data and believe the disparity between Gold and Silver is already at excessive levels.

Historically, anytime the disparity between Gold prices and Silver prices (rationalized into comparative Gold price levels) breaches 30% to 60% and Gold begins an upside price advance, Silver typically begins to move higher with 4 to 8+ months.  This setup pushes the Gold to Silver ratio back below 50 or 60 as Silver rallies substantially higher, and faster than the price of Gold.

Comparatively, Silver continues to trade within a sideways price range after basing in early 2016.  This price range has been fairly consistent between $14.50 and $21.0.  With Gold recently starting to move higher because of the US/Iran military conflict, this raises an early warning flag for our research team because Silver has continued to trade below $18 – and well below recent highs near $20.

The price disparity between Gold and Silver is currently greater than 200% based on our proprietary modeling system.  Remember, anytime this disparity level is greater than 30% to 60% and Gold breaks out in a rally, Silver will break to the upside within just a few months.

The second stage rally in Silver, the real money-maker, will come when investors pile into Silver and Silver Miners as the breakout in Silver becomes explosive.  The time to get into this trade is/was now or 4 months ago.  Still, there is plenty of opportunity for skilled traders right now because the breakout move in Silver and Silver Miners has not really begun yet.

The first big upside move in Silver and Miners will be to attempt to move higher and target recent resistance.  Resistance in Silver is currently near $19.70 and $21.00.  This means any move above $19.75 (or higher) where the price of Silver fails to move above $22 or $23 would constitute a “Stage 1 Base Advancement”.

After this move is complete, a “Breakout Stage” price move will take place.  This may be where Silver prices advance from the $21 to $23 level up towards the $28 to $32 price level.  This upside price advance breaches the Stage 1 resistance and attempts to establish new support for a continued Stage 2 advance.

Remember, the current disparity level is just over 200% between Gold and Silver.  If Gold continues to rally higher and Silver attempts to break higher, attempting to narrow the disparity level, then Silver will (at some point) enter a near parabolic upside price move above $36 to $40.  Our researchers believe this may happen before June or July 2020.

This incredible opportunity is currently setting up for skilled traders.  Believe it or not, while Silver continues to trade below $18 per ounce and global investors are focusing on US stocks, Emerging Markets, and Gold, Palladium and others, this setup in Silver may become the biggest investment opportunity of 2020.  Sure, Gold may rally 80% to 140% over the next 12 to 24 months.  Palladium may rally even higher.  If Silver does what we expect it to do once this setup/trigger really breaks open, Silver could rally 500%+ over 12 to 24+ months on an incredible upside disparity reversion move.

This last chart highlights why we believe this setup in Silver should not be ignored.  In 2005, the rally in Silver as a result of this Disparity trigger resulted in Silver reaching a 38% higher peak than Gold.  In 2009, the same Disparity trigger prompted Silver to rally to levels nearly 300% higher than the peak in Gold prices.  If Gold rallies to levels above $2800 to $3100, which is our expectation, and this Disparity trigger prompts an upside move in Silver, we believe Silver could rally to levels 200% to 400% (or more) higher than Gold prices.  By our estimates, that would put Silver prices above $90 to $95 per ounce – possibly much higher.

Take advantage of any opportunity you have to position your portfolio for this setup and be patient.  The upside breakout in Silver happens like a train leaving the station.  Slow and steady at first, then building momentum, then finally running at top speed.  Each time this Disparity trigger sets up and executes, Silver starts a moderate move higher at first, then explodes to the upside as Gold continues to rally higher.  That last explosive move is why Silver reaches peaks that are substantially higher (in percentage terms) than the peaks in Gold.

Commitment Of Traders (COT) Data Suggests Gold In Rally Mode

Many people believe the price of Gold will need to fall to support Institutional short positions.  We don’t believe this is the case.  The Commitment Of Traders (COT) Data suggests Commercial Hedgers have a large and growing shot position that is a very positive sign for a continued rally in Gold and Miners looking forward months from now.

Don’t think about COT data like everyone else with it comes to gold.

Over the past 20+ years, every time the COT Commercial Hedgers position in Gold falls, weakens substantially, or makes new multi-year lows the price of gold rallies.

WHY RECORD COMMERCIAL SHORT HEDGE POSITION IS BULLISH

It is my belief that the markets will move in favor of where the big money (commercial/institutions) want it to go in most cases. so if the commercial’s keep adding a short hedge position that means they are adding to heir long exposure and need to add more of a hedge to help protect their growing LONG position.

The weakening COT data from 2001 through 2012 is a perfect example.  As Commercial Hedgers moved away from Gold, the price of gold rallied to the all-time highs.

Additionally, after the major bottom in Gold in 2016, Commercial traders would have bought and accumulated gold driving the price higher.

Now, in late 2018 and throughout all of 2019, the Commercial Hedger COT position in Gold has fallen to the lowest level in the past 20+ years. This suggests the rally in Gold has really just begun to accelerate to the upside and there are more people buying gold than ever before who are buying protection (hedging)

The COT data I find very deceiving because it’s displayed and delayed in a way that makes traders and investors think the opposite.

Wall Street is in the business of making a market, and that means they play a game of deception so you do the opposite of what they are doing. Wall Street show As you watch gold moving with your new view on the COT data, you will notice gold will rally and post strong moves, then a couple of weeks later the COT data comes out.

With all that said, this is just my view and opinion of how I read the COT data for gold specifically. As with every chart and trader, there are many different ways things can be analyzed and viewed.

Since the price just had a strong advance, and you now see the commercials have added to their short position you naturally expect a pullback after a price rally especially when you see the big players adding to their short/hedge position. But what really just happened? the big players bought gold, and they had to hedge some of their new position. Very bullish in my opinion. While I do not use it for trading, it is a good confirming indicator of a trend.

Our research team, as well as our proprietary price modeling systems, suggested that Gold may rally to levels above $3700 before reaching an ultimate peak.  Currently, our predictive modeling systems are suggesting the next target is well above $1600 and we believe our original target from our October 2018 analysis, of $1700 to $1750, is still very valid.

We believe this current upside price rally in Gold will attempt to clear the previous high levels near $1924 – from September 2011.  We believe moderate resistance/rotation near $1700 to $1750 will be the last level of price resistance before a continued rally will push Gold prices above the $1924 peak – possibly stalling just below $2100.  Once price breaches the previous high level, we expect a short period of price rotation before another upside price acceleration takes Gold prices above $2400 to $2500.

Gold Miners are poised for an incredible upside price rally if our analysis of Gold is accurate.  GDXJ is currently trading near $42 – showing moderate weakness while Gold has seen some strength this week.  We believe Miners will do very well once Gold really breaks out above $1750 and begins to target the previous all-time high level.

Much like our expectations for Gold, we believe GDXJ will rally to levels near $60 once this current overbought condition wears off. Then we expect it to head towards $60 and rotate lower for a few weeks before attempting to rally further to levels above $70+.

High Yield Bond and Transports Signal Gold By Signal

Technical Analysis is the theory that price relates all news, fundamental and correlative future expectations into current and recent price activity.  It is the theory that price is the ultimate indicator and that charts paint a very clear picture for those individuals that are capable of understanding the message that is being presented.

In this research article, we are going to highlight the technical analysis components that we believe are painting a very clear picture that an “early warning” signal is flashing very brightly in the US and Global markets right now.

Cross market analysis and methods of rationalizing true price rotation, valuation and trend become the foundation of most technical analysis.  Studies, technical indicators, advanced price theory and all the rest of the tools we use are ways for us to better understand what price is actually showing us.  Today, we are going to focus on Gold, High Yield Corporate Bonds, and the Transportation Index because combined they are telling us something big is close to happening.

Before you continue, take a second and join my free trend trade signals email list.

Gold is a safe-haven instrument that measures uncertainty, fear, greed and the future expectations related to a secure global market economy.  When a crisis, economic or other uncertainty fears are minimized, Gold tends to move lower or consolidate into a lower price range.  When fears, economic uncertainty or any type of crisis event is causing concerns for global investors, Gold then begins to move higher as a measure of protection from risk and fear of any type of crisis event.

PRICE OF GOLD – BULL FLAG WITHIN A BULL MARKET

Gold has recently rallied well above the $1400 level and formed a large Bullish Flag pattern.  The recent rally above $1400 confirmed the new Bullish Price Trend for Gold which indicates global investors are becoming more fearful of a crisis event or some other type of economic uncertainty.

We believe the next move high in Gold will push prices above the $1625 level, then above the $1745 level.  If that happens, we’ll know the fear of some type of crisis event is very real and that the Bullish major trend in Gold may continue for many years to come.

We just posted a much more detailed report on the new 7-year bull market starting for gold and mining stocks, which if you have not yet seen take a look at the charts.

As much as we like to think that Gold leads the market in terms of measuring fear and uncertainty, Corporate Bonds also share a role in the understanding and future expectations related to economic capacity.

If Corporate Bonds begin to sell-off before a major downside market trend begins, it represents a fear that future earnings and the ability to support/service corporate debt levels may be at risk.  The way I explain this to people is that it is like a ship “battening down the hatches” and securing the cargo before entering a major storm.

A Corporate Bond sell-off indicates that global investors believe the economy is grinding to a halt and that earnings going to decline – thus putting debt at risk of failure in the future and this is why investors sell their bonds, and they they typically move before the stock indexes do. Think of high yield bonds as a leading indicator by a few days.

HIGH YIELD CORPORATE BONDS – POTENTIAL MAJOR BREAKDOWN

This HYG chart highlights the support channel in Corporate Bonds that appears to be at risk of being broken.  If a breakdown in price happens, this downside rotation in HYG would be a very clear warning that the US and global stock markets may be entering a serious price correction period.

If Bonds were to move dramatically lower while Gold rallied, we can only interpret this as fear has really begun to hit the markets and traders are panicking.

TRANSPORTATION INDEX – ECONOMIC LEADING INDICATOR

Lastly, take a look at this Transportation Index chart and pay very close attention to the Head-n-Shoulders pattern setup on the right side of the chart.  You’ll see a similar Head-n-Shoulders pattern in May 2019 – just before a moderate downside price rotation.

As we move into the end of this year with liquidity diminishing and volatility starting to increase, the potential for a dramatic price sell-off becomes even greater.  The lack of real market depth and liquidity, as well as this “early warning” set up in the charts, suggests a market breakdown event may be happening right before our eyes. It also may not happen, which is fine also.

As technical traders we do not require price to move in any one direction, we simply follow price and bet on the direction it’s moving. But if we do get a breakdown here it could be really exciting especially if you have a trade or two on the right side of the market.

The cross-market Technical Analysis and the chart patterns are suggesting that a peak has set up and that future expectations are much weaker than they were 14 to 18+ months ago.

We recently published this article highlighting some of our proprietary Indicators and Indexes suggesting this recent rally in the US stock market may have been a “euphoric zombie-land rally” with no real support behind it.

Dec 2, 2019: IS THE CURRENT RALLY A TRUE VALUATION RALLY OR EUPHORIA?

If our analysis is correct, and we get the drop in stocks, it could be a very big downside move.

We believe these charts confirm that price and Technical Analysis are screaming an “Early Warning” signal that price weakness is setting up in the US and global markets.  We believe the continued lack of liquidity throughout the Christmas holiday season may prompt a very big breakdown price move at any time in the near future.  When any one of these charts begins a price move to confirm these predicted setups, it won’t take long for the bigger major trends to follow-through.

As a technical analysis and trader since 1997, I have been through a few bull/bear market cycles. I believe I have a good pulse on the market and timing key turning points for both short-term swing trading and long-term investment capital. The opportunities are massive/life-changing if handled properly. This week we entered two new trades and it’s not too late to get into them before they run higher!

Welcome To The Zombie-Land Of Investing – Part 2

In Part I of this research post, we highlight how the ES and Gold reacted 24+ months prior to the 2007-08 market peak and subsequent collapse in 2008-09.  The point we were trying to push out to our followers was that the current US stock market indexes are acting in a very similar formation within a very mature uptrend cycle.

We ended Part I with this chart, below, comparing 2006-08 with 2018-19.  Our intent was to highlight the new price high similarities as well as the price rotation similarities between the two critical peaks in market price. We are terming the current market a “Zombie-land” because it appears global investors are somewhat brain-dead as to the total risks that are setting up in the global markets right now. But, wait before you continue reading make sure to opt-in to our free market trend signals newsletter.

Forward guidance is waning. Earning expectations are decreasing.  Debt levels are skyrocketing all over the planet.  Global banks are continuing to move into more Quantitative Easing measures to attempt to spark growth.  The equity markets are 9+ years into a rally while the global central banks are 10+ years into some form of continued QE efforts.  Global economic data suggests a moderate downturn in economic activity and growth for many foreign nations.  We believe the next crisis will not originate in the US, but from outside the US.  We believe the risks associated with the massive debt levels in the foreign markets will be the reason for another price decline.  Quite possibly, a commodity price collapse (think OIL) will become the catalyst for this event.

IF OIL WERE TO FALL BELOW $45…

If Oil were to fall below $45 (eventually possibly flirting with the $30 price level) as our predictive modeling suggests, then we believe many foreign nations will suddenly become serious risk factor related to debt/credit and could potentially create a domino-process where the US/Global markets collapse on this new risk factor. Our last predictive model signal was for natural gas and we just close out the trade locking in 19% profits this week.

IS 2007 SETTING UP ALL OVER AGAIN?

But what if this is 2007 setting up all over again?  Take a look at the ES chart above – where a peak setup in May/June 2007, followed by a deep price correction.  Follow that price move even further to see how price rallied to a new all-time high throughout July, August and most of September before setting up in a deeper price rotation in late September and carrying forward into October.  Now, take a look at this current ES Weekly chart to see if there is any similarity between them.

GOLD UP 50% FROM ITS LOWS ALREADY

Gold has already rallied nearly 49% from the 2015 lows and the recent price rotation is somewhat similar to what happened to Gold in 2006-2007.  The extended base that set up between 2017 and 2018 could be interpreted as a similar type of base that set up in 2006-07.  The current rally is somewhat similar to what happened in late 2007 and early 2008 when the US stock market began to collapse volatility expanded in a strong uptrend which was followed by a moderate price retracement before Gold began a rally totaling more than 250% from the base/bottom.  Is this setup happening again right now?

WEEKLY NQ CHART SHOWS THE EXTENDED MELT-UP

This Weekly NQ chart shows the extended melt-up that is taking place after the October to December deep price rotation that took place in 2018.  We believe this deep price rotation is similar to the deep price rotation that happened between July and September 2007.  The subsequent “melt-up” process is a function of the “zombie-land” function of price and bias.  Investors chase after security and returns by pushing the price higher and higher when fundamentals and expectations don’t align with these expectations.  This same type of “zombie-land melt-up” happened in 2007 as well.

We understand the implications of this research post and want to warn all of our followers they need to be extremely cautious of the current market setup.  Even though the US stock market may continue an upside bias within a melt-up process, we believe there are very strong underlying risks in the markets that could prompt a very deep price correction.

THE US FED IS NOT LOWERING RATES BECAUSE …

The US Fed is not lowering rates because of market strength and super strong forward guidance.  They are lowering rates because they believe risks exist in the debt/credit market and are trying to stay ahead of a big problem – a potentially very big problem.  The overnight REPO market has been a topic for our researchers for the past 45+ days as this temporary institutional debt tool has exploded recently.  Now, the US Fed has actively decreased rates and has begun acquiring more debt on its balance sheet.. hmm.  That seems strangely similar to another credit/debt crisis event.

(source: https://thesoundingline.com/october-saw-the-largest-increase-in-feds-balance-sheet-since-the-financial-crisis/)

We know many of our followers may consider this just another warning from a bunch of doom-sayers again.  We’re not wishing for this outcome – trust us.  We simply look at the technical data, determine a probable outcome and present our findings to our followers to try to keep them informed.

Too many similarities are starting to align to make this just some strange coincidence.  Too many unknowns and uncertainties are aligning just 12 months before a US presidential election cycle.  It seems strangely familiar to us that these same types of price events are unfolding now.  If there is no correlation then we’ll likely be incorrect in our analysis.  But if we are right and there is a major price reversion event setting up, we think it is wise to alert as many of our friends as possible.

Metals Beginning Another Rally Attempt?

Recently, the US stock market rallied to new all-time highs which prompted an almost immediate celebration.  A day later, the US stock markets reacted by setting up multiple top rotation patterns.  The next day, a moderate price rally set up after the US Fed decreased rates by 25 basis points.  The next day, the markets sold off dramatically with heavier volume – prompting the metals and the VIX to rally.

We’ve been warning for weeks that the US markets were setting up into a Pennant/Flag formation within a tightening range biased to the upside.  See our index trend analysis signals here. We believe the move in precious metals today may be indicative of a breakout/breakdown move in the markets – near the apex of the pennant formation on the Gold chart, below.

We believe this Pennant/flag formation on the Daily Gold chart aligns with the longer-term pennant formation that setup in the US stock market.  We believe the breakout move in metals may be a very strong indication that the US stock market may begin a reversion price move, a deeper downside price rotation, that may result in a spike in the VIX and metals while the US, and potentially global, stock markets react to weakness that may drive a price correction over the next few weeks.  This type of price correction may be just like the correction that happened near the end of 2018.

As we’ve been warning over the past few weeks, we believe the US and global stock markets are setting up in a very fragile price pattern.  One that may result in a moderately deep price correction that may surprise investors over the next few weeks and months.  Be prepared for some very large volatility and an increased risk of a potentially very deep price correction over the next 60 to 120+ days.

If gold continues as we suspect, a rally to the $1600 to $1650 level may be seen very quickly.  Ultimately, this rally may continue to levels above $1700 to $1750 before the end of 2019.  The speed of the rally in metals will relate to the amount of fear generated by any weakness in the global markets and the speed and severity of potential price collapse.

Silver, which should lag behind Gold initially, may see one of the biggest rallies drive prices well above $22 to $23 on the initial upside move – we may just have to wait for it to accelerate as Gold will likely lead this rally.

At this point, price is the true indicator.  Technical analysis, price patterns, price theory, and other resources allow us to better understand what is likely to happen in the future.  Any price failure after the US stock market reached these nominal new highs will prompt an attempt to retest recent price lows.  This means the US stock market may attempt to retest the June 2019 lows or the December 2018 lows on deep price correction.

Read some of our past research posts to understand why this setup is so important for all traders to understand.  Failure at this level could be a critical top formation that pushes the markets into a new trend.

CONCLUDING THOUGHTS:

October was the month of most major asset classes completing their consolidation phase. Natural gas was the big mover in October and subscribers and I took full advantage of the consolidation and breakout for a 15-24% gain and its till on fire and ready to rocket higher.

November will be the month of breakouts and breakdowns and should spark some trades. I feel the safe havens like bonds and metals will be turning a corner and starting to firm up and head higher but they may not start a big rally for several weeks or months.

Nominal New Highs Reached, Skilled Traders Should Still Be Cautious

The US Stock market rallied on Friday, October 25, on TESLA earnings crushing expectations as well as news that any positive US trade deal outcomes could see almost immediate removal of future tariffs that are scheduled to be implemented near the end of October.  This was enough for the markets to rally from the start of trading and continue to push higher until near Noon in NY.  After new highs were reached, the markets contracted a bit headed into the close.

Gold shot up early this morning before the news related to the US trade deal hit.  Our opinion is that this is a natural advancement in precious metals that is not new related or muted by some external factors.  Precious metals have been setting up a sideways FLAG formation for over 2 months and we believe the apex/breakout move is near.

Oil was somewhat flat to close out the week and closed trading near $56.63.  The past three days we have seen oil rise from the $53 level to the current price levels, but we believe oil is still fundamentally oversupplied and that price will continue to weaken over time.

The real question before all of us right now is will this new nominal high represent a new breakout bullish price trend heading into a US Presidential Election cycle, or is this more price rotation within a defined price range?

If you consider all the shifting aspects of the US political and economic landscape as well as the current geopolitical and economic factors, we believe any real breakout move will come as we get closer to November 2020 – not now.  We believe this is still price rotation and we believe the NQ is the likely cause of this new nominal price high on Friday.  Tesla crushed earnings and that set a positive tone for Friday’s trading.

TRANSPORTATION INDEX DAILY CHART

The TRAN, Transportation Index, is still trading near current resistance and has not shown any true new price high yet.  It will be interesting to see how the markets open up early next week and what news may drive a new price trend by then.

MID-CAP SECTOR DAILY CHART

The Mid-Cap has failed to rally to recent price highs which suggest this is not a broad market rally.  We would want to see more defined price advancement across all sectors and above recent price highs to call this a broad market rally/breakout

Pay attention to the new that originates this weekend.  We don’t believe a deal will be reached with regards to trade as quickly as some others may believe and we still believe the next 12+ months of the US Presidential election cycle will be full of surprises.  We may start to get more clarity of a true price trend after the New Year (2020).  Until then, we’re staying cautious of these price rotations and picking our trades.

The Divergence of Gold And Bitcoin – Which Represents A True Safe-Haven?

Recently, Mark Zuckerberg appeared before the US Congress to discuss his new Libra project and to attempt to calm concerns related to his new global alternate currency project.  It appears this project is putting global political leaders in a particularly powerful position of either accepting the Libra project as a viable future solution and implementing new laws and regulations in support of it or to shelve the idea while they consider the local and global risks associated with a project that creates a new class of global currency. (Source: https://www.bloomberg.com)

We believe the risks associated with a massive corporate and international backed Crypto/Alternate currency are far too great, at this time, for the US government to attempt to consider with only 12+ months to go before the US Presidential elections.  This is almost like opening Pandora’s Box in terms of total global risks and outcomes.  It becomes almost impossible for the US government, Federal Reserve or any other global central bank to be able to protect its citizens from the risks associated with any type of technology collapse, fraud, hacking or any other unknown risks associated with such an idea.

The concept of a “Safe-Haven” may come into question over the next 10+ months as investors continue to question what may happen in the global markets, global political events and asset valuations related to Cryptos, Precious Metals, and foreign currencies.  Our researchers believe mature economy currencies will quickly become new currency Safe-Havens for global investors over the next 10+ months as banking, credit and economic risks continue to shake out weaker markets.

Cryptos may see some support as price rotates over the next 10+ months prior to the US Presidential elections, yet we believe the real global asset markets (stocks, currencies, debt/credit, and bonds) will take center stage as the world transitions through a very tumultuous period prior to the November 2020 US elections.  Even for a period of time shortly after the US elections, global assets will continue to reposition as future economic and regional asset value expectations shift.

There is a very real potential that global investors continue to seek safety and liquidity in the global major markets, economies and global currencies.  Additionally, Precious Metals continue to show very little signs of weakening over the past 12+ months.

In fact, Precious Metals have continued to stay much stronger than many other investments over the past few years.  Gold is up +17.60% from October 2017.  Palladium is up 78.81% since October 2017. Silver is up 4.9% over that same period of time.  Once the next upside price leg begins in Precious Metals, we may see a massive price increase in Gold and Silver.  Supply issues continue to push Palladium prices higher as well.

Imagine being able to trade the precious metals sector easily with little downside risk and only being involved during the rallies and not the selloffs, all while generating 2x the return that GDXJ has return in 2019. Take a look at this trading strategy here.

Gold is setting up in a manner that is very similar to what happened in April 2019 – a sideways momentum base pattern that eventually broke to the upside in early June 2019.  Once that move higher began to take place, the continued move to the upside was very quick and extensive.  We believe the next upside move in Gold and Silver will be very similar – a moderately slow rotation out of the momentum base, then a fast acceleration to the upside as global investors realize the shift to safety has begun again.

We believe Cryptos may be left on the sidelines as investors prefer more traditional assets as a measure of safety as global concerns continue to weigh on investor’s minds headed into a very contentious US presidential election.  Currencies, Metals, Mature global market assets and true value stocks may become the investment of choice until we see some real clarity for the future from the global markets, global central banks, and global political leaders.
