Much as I hate to be the bearer of bad tidings for those of you who have been oh-so-eager to get short — or perhaps to stay short — this hoax is headed higher. Long-time subscribers will have noticed by now that it’s no great trick using...
Is the resumption of the bull market in gold that so many have patiently awaited for years quietly gathering strength under our noses? The possibility occurred to me on Thursday following conversations with two of the savviest investors I...
Traders seem obsessed lately with the ups, and mostly downs, of crude oil — so much so that every dip, feint and jiggle in energy futures is being replicated almost tick-for-tick by the S&Ps. A recent op-ed piece by Don Luskin in the...
I'm establishing a tracking position — long four contracts from 1048.00 — since subscribers reported buying December Gold on the basis of a longstanding target I’d furnished at 1044.50. The futures traded as low as 1046.20 intraday,...

Monday’s moderate weakness looks innocuous in the context of the bullishness of the 240-minute chart shown. Notice that the presumptive C-D phase of the rally begun from 1081.40 in early August stalled precisely at the 1141.90 midpoint...
Take a good look at the long-term chart shown and let it liberate your imagination. It’s not difficult to see the force of gravity at work here, pulling the S&Ps toward a trendline that lies 250 points below. Notice how, when the...
I go back many years with Rick. He used to quote me regularly on his site–and I had some prescient timing calls that were perfect. We bot GG and NEM at the lows and rode them all the way to an interim peak; and sold the day before they...
