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...
With stocks plummeting around the world, it’s clear that gold flunked the safe-haven test. Virtually no one would have predicted that bullion prices would barely budge if the Dow Industrials were to fall more than 2100 points in just three...
When a trend exceeds a Hidden Pivot target, we usually infer that it will continue, often following a reaction move in the opposite direction. Notice in the chart that the Dow Industrials decisively exceeded a 17,251 downside target this...
I've been bearish on gold for so long that my successively lower targets have become almost perfunctory. Lately, I’ve focused on a ‘Hidden Pivot’ target at $817, the attainment of which would presumably wash out the last of the die-hard...
The bearish target at 1059.70 (see chart) seems clear and compelling to me — so much so as to beg the question of why the futures have been thrashing around for the last two weeks just above it.
We have enough downside targets in play at the moment to keep us on our toes, but this chart allows a more optimistic outlook for the near-term. Notice the very precise bounce from the 1161.70 midpoint pivot. This validates the pattern...
The 1183.40 downside target given here yesterday allowed subscribers to get long four ticks off the intraday low. Since I received reports of actual fills in the chat room, I’m establishing a tracking position: long two contracts with a...
We’ll probably know before the opening bell whether Thursday’s nasty, $34 selloff was merely gratuitous. Rumor had it that some big sellers clobbered gold yesterday because they felt like it, but we’ll reserve judgment until it has been...
