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.

Craig Hemke from TFMetalsReport.com and Chris Talk Metals & Markets

These are crazy times and if you’re attempting to make some fiat via trading, you need all the help you can get. To that end, it was great to get acquainted today with Craig Hemke of TF Metals Report.

If you’re not familiar with Craig’s work and his service, you can find all that you need to know by visiting his website:  TFMetalsReport.com

Over the course of this call, Craig and I discuss:

  • Methods and strategies for identifying trading opportunities
  • The discipline applied in finding a trade, sticking with it or taking profits
  • The current “Best Asset Now” and why

But there’s a whole lot in between, too, so please take time to give this podcast a thorough listen. You’re certain to learn something new.

Many thanks to Craig for sharing his valuable time today.

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 rest of this financial crisis going into late 2020 and early 2021.

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.

When It Comes To Precious Metals Markets, What’s In A Bull Market And What’s Not

Cory Fleck from the Korelin Economics Report and Chris Vermeulen talked and provided some thoughts on the precious metals markets. The stocks are continuing to lead the sector and GDX is adding to the breakout. But not all precious metals sectors and stocks are in bull markets right now. We outline what’s still lagging. Also some comments on a Natural Gas trade at the end.

Overall, this has been an excellent trade.  We got our members into this trade fairly early and are already pulling profits and trailing stops.  It certainly helps to have the modeling systems and seasonal analysis tools we use to find these setups for our members – but you can do it too.  All it takes is a bit of skill and understanding of how certain markets operate within seasonal trends and setups.  Otherwise, if you don’t have the time to research every chart we can do it all for you and just send you the trades we are taking.

Silver Forecast and Prediction of Silver Stocks

Silver Forecast WebsiteSilver forecast shows you the critical line in the sand that silver must hold if the new bull market is to start in the near future. If silver can find support here then I predict silver to rally and break out of its basing pattern in the next 2-3 months.

Silver Forecast & Equities Prediction

In this article I show you how to read and trade using trend lines. Most individuals trade trend lines incorrectly and my example is using the US Dollar index chart which is one of the main points why my silver forecast is bullish.

Silver remains is a downtrend or basing phase at this point, but some big price action is just around the corner. Silver traders and investors should be aware that if silver breaks below its sell support zone it could be in for a world of hurt…

Silver and gold mining stocks are in a similar position but we are seeing bullish divergence when comparing the gold miners bullish percent index to the GDX etf. This is pointing to higher price for silver and gold stocks. Keep in mind that divergence is an early warning indicator and trades should not be traded based upon that alone.
