Austin Galt is The Voodoo Analyst. I have studied charts for over 20 years and am currently a private trader. Several years ago I worked as a licensed advisor with a well known Australian stock broker. While there was an abundance of fundamental analysts, there seemed to be a dearth of technical analysts. My aim here is to provide my view of technical analysis that is both intriguing and misunderstood by many. I like to refer to it as the black magic of stock market analysis.

Cooooeee! That’s the sound of the HUI Gold Bug bulls trying to find other bulls to push the price a little higher in order to break the downtrend. But the landscape appears desolate. The bulls don’t seem to be stepping up when the going...
Gold needs a shine to get it’s sparkle back. In the good ole days, news the likes of the Malaysia Airlines crash would have sent gold soaring. But that’s the difference between a bull trend and a bear trend. Good news in a bear trend can...
Well, what a hammering the markets took on Thursday! There’s always a reason for this move or that and the Malaysia Airlines crash near the border of Ukraine and Russia and its potential consequences was the main driver in this case....
