Palladium Sets Up Another Double Top Pattern

Is this Double-Top setup in Palladium another warning of a potential downside price move?  Back in April 2018, we issued a Double-Top pattern warning in Palladium which preceded a downside price move of nearly 28%.  We believe this new Double-Top pattern may prompt a downside price move of nearly 20% – targeting the $1240 level.

April 18, 2018: PALLADIUM RALLY DRIVING OTHER METALS TO MOVE?

This Weekly Palladium chart highlights the YELLOW Double-Top pattern formation that we believe may prompt a new downside price move.  Our expectations are that any new price weakness in Palladium will push prices down to the BLUE Fibonacci projected target level near $1240.  Additionally, should price break through the $1240 level, the next target levels are $1000 and $1060.

Palladium is a component that is related to industrial output and economic output for many industries; Automotive, Technology, Medical Devices and Equipment, and many others.  A decrease in demand for Palladium would indicate a decreased demand for a broad swath of global industry leaders.

This would likely result in a decreasing or weakening global economic outlook and, potentially, be an early warning sign that the global stock markets are about to enter a period of extended price weakness.

Pay very close attention to the $1450 to $1475 level in Palladium.  These levels are the most recent support levels from previous triggers.  Price weakness below these levels would be a strong indication that Palladium may continue to move lower targeting the $1240 level or lower.

Look at my trend analysis chart for Palladium. Yes, it is in an uptrend but as of the last trading session it is now trading at an extreme overbought level which typically means sellers should step into the market at any time.

See my current trend and trade signals for the SP500 index here.

Now is the time to plan and prepare for these incredible price swings in the global markets.  The next 18-24 months are certain to present technical traders with countless opportunities for success with these bigger price moves.

Part II – Are Real Estate ETF’s The Next Big Trade?

In part I of this research post, we highlighted how the shifting landscape of the US real estate market may be setting up an incredible trading opportunity for technical traders.  It is our belief that the continued capital shift which has been driving foreign investment into US assets, real estate, and other investments may be shifting away from US real estate as tell-tale signs of stress are starting to show.  Foreclosures and price drops are one of the first signs that stress exists in the markets and we believe the real estate segment could be setting up for an incredible trade opportunity.

SRS, the Proshares Ultrashort Real Estate EFT has recently completed a unique “washout low” price bottom that we believe may become an incredible trading opportunity for technical traders.  If the US Fed pushes the market into a panic mode, sellers will become even more desperate to offload their homes and buyers will become even more discerning in terms of selecting what and when to buy.

Our opinion is that the recent “washout low” price bottom in SRS is very likely to be a unique “scouting party” low/bottom that may set up a very big move to the upside over the next 4 to 12+ months.  If our research is correct, the continued forward navigation for the US Fed, global central banks and the average consumers buying and selling homes is about to become very volatile.

If SRS moves above the $25.50 level, our first upside Fibonacci price target and clears the $24.25 previous peak set in April 2019, it would be a very clear indication that a risk trade in Real Estate is back in play.  Ideally, price holding above the $21.65 level would provide a very clear level of support negating any future price weakness below $21.50.

This weekly SRS chart highlights what we believe to be the optimal BUY ZONE and the upside price targets near $28 to $29.  Since the bottom in 2009-10, after the credit market crisis, we have not seen any substantial risk in the Real Estate market for over 8+ years.  Now, though, it is our opinion that this risk trade is very real and that technical trader should be aware of this potential move and what it means to protect assets and wealth.

If our research proves to be accurate and any future move by the US Fed will prompt a “rush to the exits” by home sellers, then there is really only one course of action left for us to consider.  Either the Fed will reduce rates, buying some at-risk sellers a bit of time before a rush to sell overwhelms the markets and prices begin a fast decline in an attempt to secure quick buyers; or the Fed will leave rates at current levels where at-risk sellers will continue to attempt to offload their homes to any willing buyers before declining prices and panicked sellers start the “race to the bottom” in terms of pricing.

CONCLUDING THOUGHTS:

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 – the “price revaluation cycle”.  This is where the opportunity lies with our suggested SRS trade setup.

We believe this bottom in SRS will result in a few more weeks of trading near price support (above $20 and below $22.50) where traders will be able to acquire their positions.  The bigger move will happen as risk becomes more evident – very similar to what has recently happened in Gold. Once that risk is visible to traders/investors, the upside potentials ($28+ to $42+) won’t seem so illogical any longer.

I can tell you that huge moves are about to start unfolding not only in real estate, but metals, stocks, and currencies. Some of these super cycles are going to last years.

Are Real Estate ETF’s The Next Big Trade?

A subscriber recently mentioned getting into a real estate ETF so we started going over the data which may suggest the Real Estate sector could become the next big trade over the next 12+ months.  The news that the US Fed may decrease rates in an attempt to front-run global economic weakness and real estate market weakness may result in a waterfall event in local and regional real estate markets.  This type of event could become a fantastic trading opportunity for technical traders.

Recently we have been talking about the unit and very different opportunities in other physical assets like precious metals. Each metal is unique for market timing has its own personality. Our gold predictions are an eye-opener, why silver is awesome, and our most recent analysis on platinum is timely.

Overall, our research has been focused on one of the hottest markets anywhere in the US, California.  Los Angeles, Ventura County, Orange County, San Diego, and San Francisco make up the entire massive Southern California real estate market.  The California real estate market is a fairly strong indicator for weaker market segments because the number of transactions taking place across the 400+ miles spanning San Francisco to San Diego represent multiple trillions of dollars, vast segments of consumers and types of housing as well as an incredibly diverse economic landscape ranging from coastal regions, farming regions, cities, technology hubs, agriculture and dozens of others (source).

Our concern is that a rate decrease by the US Fed may be interpreted as a “move to attempt to abate fear” instead of a “move to support the markets”.  If this decrease in rates does happen and at-risk homeowners fear the Fed is trying to push buttons to adjust the consumer environment toward a “buying bias” and sellers become scared, then the race to sell faster (decreasing prices to attract buyers) may become the norm.  In other words, in an effort to support the markets, the Fed could take actions that remove the floor from the markets as sellers attempt to get the best price possible before buyers become aware of the “race to the bottom” in terms of pricing.

At-risk homeowners are under increasing pressures as pricing, income and other expenses seem to have wreaked havoc with what was a traditionally strong real estate market just three years ago.  It appears the Fed has raised rates just enough to start to show the cracks in the dam in Orange County and LA County, California.  The increasing number of blue dots, as well as the continue “price drops” in these areas, are a very clear sign that the “hot market” is now just “mildly warm and cooling fast”.  Prices are past the peak and are already starting to decline fairly rapidly.

Additionally, delinquency levels for commercial and industrial loans are starting to rise dramatically – much like what happened in 2007 – just months before the credit market crash in 2008.  Commercial and Industrial loan delinquencies rose sharply from 1.14 in Q2 2007 to 1.45 in Q1 2008 – eventually peaking at 447 in Q3 2009.  Currently, Delinquency levels are at 1.17 – up from 0.93 for Q4 2018.  If this trend continues past September, we could be looking at a very different real estate economic picture by the end of 2019 or early 2020 (Source).

CONCLUDING THOUGHTS:

Our interpretation of the US housing market is that buyers are becoming more opportunistic as they are watching the markets and watching how sellers are dropping prices in an attempt to attract a sale.  Buyers have not seen this type of activity since early 2007-08 or so when sellers were getting desperate to get out of their homes near the top of the market.  At the same time, watching how sellers attempt to push their home into the hands of buyers creates a shifting dynamic in the Real Estate market.  All the sudden it went from a seller’s market and is now shifting into a buyers market.

The rates of delinquencies, consumer confidence, and levels of disposable income all factor into the market’s reactions to price and sales activity.  When buyers believe it is opportunistic to buy, they will move mountains to attempt to acquire a home or an asset.  When buyers believe it is not opportunistic to buy an asset, they will likely decide to wait for a more opportunistic time to make their purchase.

In part II of this article, we will share our research that highlights the incredible trade setup related to the Real Estate market and how technical traders can position their portfolios for this move.

Platinum Setting Up For A Big Price Anomaly

Our clients and followers have been following our incredible research and market calls regarding Gold and Silver with intense focus.  We issued a research post in October 2018 that suggested Gold would rocket higher from a base level below $1300 to an initial target near $1450 almost 9 months ago.

As of this week, Gold has reached a high of $1442.90 only $7.10 away from our predicted target level.  This has been an absolutely incredible move in Gold and we could not be more pleased with the outcome for our clients, followers, and anyone paying attention to our research posts.

Additionally, many of our clients have been asking us to share our predictive modeling research for Platinum, which has been basing near recent lows recently.  We decided to share our research with everyone regarding the information our proprietary predictive modeling tools are suggesting.

You can see from my precious metals comparison article which metal has the most upside potential looking going forward.

Also, be sure you read my exclusive Platinum prediction which is playing out exactly as expected thus far.

Todays Updated Platinum Analysis:
This first Platinum chart highlights our Fibonacci price modeling tool and provides some critical information we need to understand about Platinum right now.  The Volatility Zone, created by the range between the Bullish and Bearish Fibonacci Trigger Levels, is very large.  This is a very clear indication that implied volatility in Platinum is currently at levels near 26% of the current price.  To put that into perspective, an impulse move in Platinum could result in a $125 to $250 price breakout or breakdown, depending on price structure, before implied volatility may reduce back to normal levels.  Normal price volatility in Platinum is typically somewhere between 4.6% to 11.5%.

The next aspect of our research we want you to focus on is the rotation of the price peaks and troughs, highlighted by MAGENTA arcs we’ve drawn on this chart.  The rotation of price over the past 11+ months has been a very clear “higher price trend channel” where higher highs and higher lows have been forming.

This presents a very clear price picture for the current price levels, near the recent price lows ($765), are very likely to attempt a rally back towards levels that will attempt to set up another “new price high” – $925 or higher.  Although, we have to be very cautious of the extended volatility levels and the potential for a price breakdown into the BREAKDOWN ZONE (highlighted on the chart below).  Should price fail to attempt to move higher, then a very clear price breakdown will take, breaking the current trend channel and invalidating our bullish price predictions.

Currently, our researchers believe there is a very strong likelihood of an upside price move breaching the $818 level (highlighted by the WHITE LINE near the BLUE Fibonacci projection level) to begin the upside price move.  Once this level is breached, we would have technical confirmation that a key Fibonacci level has been tested, breached and a new upside price trend is beginning to form.  This would partially validate our upside price expectations and allow us to target a long objective near $865.

Obviously, technical traders would attempt to look for strategic entries below $805, if they present themselves.  The concept is to take advantage of the lowest risk trade entries the markets provide.  At the same time, there is plenty of room in the middle of this trade for decent profits as well.

This next chart shows our Adaptive Dynamic Learning (ADL) predictive modeling system that maps out price bars, technical data, and comparative price data into a DNA chain for future reference.  In a way, this tool attempts to “infer knowledge” by digging deeper into the price and technical data than we can attempt to do visually – then project the expected price levels well into the future.

This ADL chart is presenting two very clear outcomes.  One with much higher prices and another with lower/stagnant pricing levels that tend to weaken over time.  This result is the output of two different, side-by-side, price bars and it shows how the ADL can highlight increased volatility and what we call a “price anomaly” pattern that is setting up.

Obviously, the current price is near these lower ADL predicted levels, thus we could assume the lower predicted levels may be more accurate.  Yet, both of the ADL bars predicted that price would move lower (below $840) throughout this time-span.  Where the ADL predictions diverge is THIS WEEK and into the future.  The analysis from April 29 is suggesting that the price of Platinum should be trading near $845 right now and will breakout to much higher levels (above $930) within the next 1 to 3+ weeks.  The analysis from May 6 is suggesting that the price of Platinum will languish near $760 to $800 for the next 5+ weeks while continuing to weaken.

This is the setup of a “Price Anomaly”.  Where price is actually “out of alignment” with one key element of the ADL predictive modeling system and setting up an incredible opportunity for skilled traders. We’ve learned that either one of two things will happen…  Either price WILL revert to much higher levels as suggested by the April 29 ADL prediction OR, the price will stall near recent lows as suggested by the May 6 ADL prediction.

As a skilled trader, our job is to understand where the opportunity lies within this ADL prediction and attempt to manage the risks.

As we stated earlier in this research post, the combination of the Fibonacci and ADL predictive modeling systems are suggesting a very clear action for traders – attempt to accumulate below $800 with the expectation that price may continue to consolidate near these levels for 3 to 10+ more days.  Eventually, as our ADL predictive modeling system is suggesting, a breakout upside price move is likely to take place where the price will attempt to move dramatically higher – targeting $850 first, then possibly $935 or higher.  This is the “price anomaly reversion” trade that creates the opportunity for skilled traders.

The ADL predictive modeling system is great at suggesting where the price will attempt to target in the near future.  When it aligns with the current price, then we have some validation that price is acting normally.  When price moves against the suggestions of the ADL predictive modeling system, then we have a “price anomaly setup” and we typically wait for confirmation of the “trigger” to confirm this reversion will actually take place.  Our trigger is the WHITE LINE on the Fibonacci chart, above.  Once price closes above $818 to $820 on a fairly strong move, then we would have technical confirmation that price is attempting to establish “new price highs” and this should provide enough momentum to push the price anomaly reversion trade into a real opportunity for success.

Silver Will Pause Before Going Higher

Silver will likely find resistance near $15.60 and move slightly lower before another upside price leg takes place.  Both gold and silver have begun incredible price rallies over the past 10+ days and we believe this is just the start of a much bigger price trend.

We believe Silver, to be one of the absolute best potential trades and investment. It will likely pause just below $15.75, near the First Resistance level, rotate a bit lower (possibly towards $15.15), then attempt another rally towards the $16.50 level.

Daily Silver Chart Analysis

The $15.60 to $15.75 resistance level can be seen on this chart by our RED highlighted price peaks. Additionally, the upper RESISTANCE ZONE between $16.15 and $16.78 is a big range that has historically been a key price channel.

My cycle and trend trading indicators are suggesting this move is far from over, yet we believe this move upward will happen in advancement legs and this first leg is nearing exhaustion.  This is why we are issuing this warning to all investors right now.  We believe a downward price rotation, a stalling price pattern, will set up where a technical trader will be able to acquire silver below $15.25 again very soon.  The next leg higher may start fairly quickly as we don’t expect this rotation to extend out for many weeks.

See Our Previous Silver Breakout Prediction Call on June 7th

Monthly Silver Chart

This Monthly Silver chart with our proprietary Fibonacci price modeling system suggests upside targets of $17.00 (CYAN), $17.65 (GREEN), and $18.50 (DARK RED).  Our RESISTANCE ZONE level on the chart, above, aligns perfectly with these objectives because the price would first have to rally into the RESISTANCE ZONE and break through this level to push to any higher target levels.

Therefore, we believe this upside price move won’t run into any solid resistance until reaching above the $16.30 level and possibly as high as the $16.75 to $17.00 level.  At that point, the price of Silver should find real resistance, stall, and set up for the next breakout move higher.

At this point, if you have not been following our research and analysis of the precious metals sector and already positioned your trades for this move, you should get another chance to set up some long trades as this downside price rotation takes place.  Remember, wait for silver to fall close to or below $15.25 before targeting your new trade entry.  This bottom in silver may only last for a few short trading periods, so when it happens, be ready with your orders.

CONCLUDING THOUGHTS:

The next upside leg in Silver should rally for a total of about +6% to +10% targeting the $16.25 to $17.00 price level – the RESISTANCE ZONE.  After that price level is reached and price consolidates to likely form another momentum base, another upside price leg should push the price of Silver towards our Monthly Fibonacci price targets – somewhere towards $18.00 to $18.50 before stalling again. !

Next Bull and Bear Markets are Now Set Up

Sharing market analysis and my opinions every day is far from easy and sometimes I feel like a song on repeat. My focus and goal has always been to try to alert fellow traders and investors of what is unfolding now in the financial markets around the globe because it appears we are about to experience another financial life-changing event much like the 2000 stock market top, and the late 2007 bull market top which will play out over the next 24+ months

If you lost money during the last bear market then you need a new game plan to take advantage of falling prices and the solution is not just to by gold, silver, and miners. In fact, you could lose a lot buying and holding them over the next year if you are not careful. We all know what the precious metals sector did during the last equities bear market (they crashed 64% with the stock market before starting to rally).

2007 Bull Market Top – SP500 and XAU Gold Miners Index

From a technical analysis standpoint, we are still a long ways away from a confirmed bear market. We do need a see a rather larger drop to break the December low we saw in the SP500 index. But, each month more warning signs pop up to confirm we would be in a full-blown bear market b the end of 2019.

Miners Are Outperforming US Equities – Top Is Near!

Last month I talked about how I have been waiting for gold miners to start outperforming the US stocks market. Once miners start outperforming in a big way (just like we saw in 2007), we know the stock market is topping out and something really bad is about to happen.

In the last couple of weeks, the gold miners index is up over 16% while the SP500 is up only 6%, this feels like the start-of-the-end if you know what I mean.

It’s a known fact that stock market prices lead earnings, news, and the economy. Stock prices start to flatten, chop sideways, and sell off typically 3-6 months or more before negative data starts to become daily headline news.

I have been predicting a top for form since early 2018 with the book I co-authored called “The Crash of 2019 and 2020 – How You Can Profit” only available to subscribers of the Wealth Building Newsletter.

Concluding Thoughts:

In short, the financial markets including commodities move in a wave like pattern and you want to own them and be to long when they are rising, and in cash or sell short (inverse ETF) when they are falling.

Everyone is excited about the gold, silver, and miners market here and now, but if everyone already owns them, and is buying more, that’s the signature herd/masses set up that we could see that market pullback hard here at any time.

The reality is, we just sold our gold and miners position because we expect a pullback/correction. Just like we played that last move in metals from the Sept bottom we called and exited near the top in mid-March. I got lots of flack for selling because everyone was SCREAMING BULL MARKET FOR METALS/MINERS (just like now) but what followed, yup a multi money correction that allowed us to take the next wave in this market which we just closed the positions.

The reality is, we never know which rally will be the TRUE breakout rally, and which selloff ill be the one that starts a new down trend, but we must stick with strict trading rules for long term consistent gains. We can reenter a position at any time with a click of a button and I don’t get worked up if I don’t get in at the exact bottom or out at the exact top because that is just called luck. The key is to get the middle low-risk gains, time and time again.

JUST $500 PROFIT PER/MONTH = 30% ROI WITH $25K ANNUALLY
POSITION SIZING = TRADING SUCCESS

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.

King Dollar Rides Higher Creating Pressures On Foreign Economies

One of the biggest movers of the day on Friday was the US dollar.  The US stock market appeared very weak prior to the opening bell and precious metals, especially gold, appeared to be rocketing higher.  Almost right from the open, the markets washed out the fear and changed direction. The US dollar did the same thing.

This renewed strength in the US dollar continues to baffle foreign investors and foreign governments as they continue to try to support their economies and currencies against a stronger and more agile US economy and currency. Even as the US dollar strength is frustrating many investors, it is also attempting to keep a lid on traditional safe havens such as precious metals.

This further complicates many foreign nations because their gold reserves are not appreciating at the same rate that their currencies are devaluing. Couple that with capital outflows, consumer protectionism, waning economic outputs, and the need to protect local currencies to avoid populist panic, and King Dollar seems to be riding high.

A friend of ours and foreign currency trader suggested we read the article below today.

Does China have enough US dollars to survive the US trade war?

We’ve authored many articles about the US dollar over the past few months.  We believe the strength in the US dollar will continue and that a support level above $92 is likely to continue to support the price for some time. That being said, the current price rotation near $96.50 provides a recent low price rotation level that could turn into future support after recent highs near $98.40 are broken.

Many times you’ve probably read our comments about a “capital shift” and how this shifting capital across the planet will be driving future investment in the US and other foreign markets.  At this point in time, it’s almost like a dog chasing its tail.  The more support the US dollar receives, the more pressure there is for foreign markets to support their currencies and economies. The weaker foreign economies become and foreign currencies devalue, the more demand for US dollars increases to help offset local weakness. It starting to become a vicious cycle.

We believe the defined price channel between the two magenta colored lines will continue to dominate US dollar price activity until price breaks through either the upper or lower range of this price channel. The current support near $96.50, will likely turn into a new price floor once price breaks above $99.

There are a number of factors that could ease the upward pricing pressure in the US dollar.  First, increased economic output and activity in foreign markets illustrating economic growth and prosperity would likely ease the capital shift into the US stock market and US dollar. Once foreign markets begin to act as though real opportunity exists over an extended period of time, then the dominance of the US dollar may begin to weaken.

Additionally, suitable trade deals, such as we witnessed between the US and Mexico recently, will help to alleviate currency pricing pressures on foreign currencies. This strength in foreign currencies presents an opportunity for global investors to take advantage of pricing gains.

Stronger foreign currency valuations and economic output will help to ease the US dollar dominance eventually.  Until that happens, as traders we need to be aware of the pricing issues related to the capital shift that is taking place, the pricing pressures on precious metals, and the likelihood that foreign investors will continue to pile into US equities while King Dollar is dominating.

Pay very close attention to foreign market weakness and news of banking issues or government bailouts of foreign banks. Much like the US credit crisis in 2008/2009, bank failures and extended credit risk exposure can lead to waterfall events.  This would be our biggest fear for the global economy if foreign governments and banking institutions are not properly prepared for extended devaluation periods. If things really started to crumble overseas we could see gold and the dollar move up together, it has happened before in times of crisis.

We’ll keep you informed as we see things transpire. In the meantime, King Dollar rides high end of the sunset and foreign governments/nations will continue to attempt to support their economies and currencies. Eventually, the fear factor will push precious metals broadly higher.

Precious Metals: T-Minus 3 Seconds To Liftoff

We take great pride in our research team’s ability to make accurate predictions and calls in the markets.  In addition to the many predictions and calls we’ve made over the past few years, our Gold prediction from October 2018 continues to astound many industry professionals. We receive emails from people asking how we were able to make such an incredible call in Gold 6 to 8 months before these price moves?  We politely tell these people that our research team and our proprietary predictive modeling tools assist us in finding and making these incredible predictions.  The simple answer is it takes hard work, specialized tools and a lot of skill and research.

Please take a minute to review some of our research from January 2019 that highlighted this incredible prediction for Gold and the supporting, more recent, research posts suggesting Silver is the real sleeper trade.

January 28, 2019: MULTI YEAR BREAKOUT IN METALS

June 7, 2019: ADL PREDICTIVE MODELING SUGGESTS A BIG MOVE IN SILVER :

June 2, 2019: IS SILVER THE SLEEPER RALLY SETUP OF A LIFETIME?

Today, we are highlighting what we believe is the momentum impulse move in Gold that will become the catalyst for the future move in Gold & Silver throughout the rest of this year and likely all of 2020.  The key element to launch Gold and Silver beyond current resistance levels is bound by two factors and could be boosted by a third.  The first two factors are “fear and greed”.

Investors are continually searching for suitable investments with healthy returns and moderate risk.  As we have learned from the past, capital will flow into any investment, even instruments that include incredible long term risk factors, when the opportunity exists for gains and risk is mitigated.  The current upside price move in Gold is just such an event.

The recent news items add additional fuel to the Precious Metals rally because they foster increased fear related to the global economy and potential military action or increased uncertainty.  This fear translates into the action of “protect my investments that may be exposed to greater risk and find an investment that reduces this risk and provides for greater returns/gains”.  That is the question Gold investors are asking themselves all over the world right now.

The booster fuel, which would drive Gold and Silver into another galaxy is the US Dollar.  If the US Dollar were to weaken, even by 4% to 7%, while a global uncertainty event continued to unfold, we believe this valuation pressure would push Gold and Silver well above our current expectations.

When we think about the current environment for precious metals, one has to understand that fear and greed don’t have to be tangible or overwhelming.  This process is almost like a perpetual motion machine.  Once the process gets started where investors pile into Gold because of the fear and greed factors, the price of gold rises.  Because the price of gold rises, traders start to pay closer attention to what is happening in gold and the greed factor starts to increase.  Once they are convinced this is a bigger opportunity and their fear levels are still valid, the conclusion is “I don’t want to miss this move in Gold, so I’ll get it now – before the big move happens”.

It is as simple as that.  And this is why we are saying “T-Minus Three Seconds” before the big breakout move really takes shape.  That is our way of saying, it could happen any day now.  The breakout move and the momentum base appear to be ready to go.

This Gold daily chart highlights the recent upward price move and shows just how quickly price can rally.  This resulted in a $75 price rally (+6%) in a matter of 10+ days.  Imagine what that will look like after Gold breaks above $1650 on the fear/greed move.

This Gold Weekly chart highlights what we expect to be the first upside leg – the move to $1450.  After that, we expect a brief pause in the rally (possibly 7 to 21+ days), then another big move higher where the price will rally above $1650.  That bigger move should solidify the focus of global investors and, much like the big move in Bitcoin, should attract a large number of investors not wanting to miss the rest of the upside move.

Silver is what we are calling the “sleeper trade” for precious metals bugs.  Sure, Gold has all the action right now because it is the leading metal to offset this fear/greed factor.  Silver always lags behind gold because it is the “little brother” to the bigger players in gold.  As our research has shown, when the move begins, Silver is actually a better trade than Gold because it will likely increase in price by a factor of 1.4 to 1.8 compared to the rally in gold prices.

We believe the next move in Silver will target $18 to $20.  These price levels below $15 are a gift for anyone willing to take the trade.

This Monthly Silver chart shows what we believe will be the upside price waves as silver advances past $22.  Read the research posts, above, again to learn more about our more detailed expectations.  It is all right there for you to see and understand.

T-Minus Three And Counting.  We believe this setup is about to break to the upside and there is not much time left to see prices near these levels.  Below $1400 in gold and below $15 in silver are about to end.  When this really does begin to lift off as we’ve been predicting, we may never see these price levels again.  Well, at least in the foreseeable future.

CONCLUSION AND UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY

Its been an incredible year and a half for many reasons. We and our Subscribers portfolios are up over 91%. We called forecasted each and every move in gold 8 months before it all unfolded right down to the week for the low/bottom.

This May we said it was a sell in May set up and we profited from the rally leading into May and traded and inverse ETF to profit from the correction. We then profited from the safe haven money flow into the utility sector which rallied while the stock market fell. And to top it off we shorted the vix spike for a quick 25% gain during a time when everyone else was panicking.

So what does this all this mean? It means we have a good pulse on the major markets and can profit during times when most others can’t.

I can tell you that huge moves are about to start unfolding not only in metals, or stocks but globally and some of these super cycles are going to last years. These super cycles starting to take place will go into 2020 and beyond which we lay out in our new book/guide: 2020 Cycles – The Greatest Opportunity Of Your Lifetime
