As a technical analysis and trader since 1997, I have been through a few bull/bear market cycles. I believe I have a good pulse on the market and timing key turning points for short-term swing traders.

It’s 2008 all over again, only much worse. And just like back then, PMs are likely to slide very fast, very far and then recover in a big way. A lot of money is likely to be made by those, who are positioned correctly.

Whoever doesn’t learn to dance in the rain will struggle to survive the virtually non-stop storms that the world will experience in the next few years. The abrupt downturn in the global economy, triggered but not caused by coronavirus, came as a lightning bolt out...

So, the stock market has dropped. Every government in the world has responded to the coronavirus with drastic, if not unprecedented, violations of the rights of the people. Not to mention, extremely aggressive monetary policy. And, they are about to unleash massive...

Item: March 16, 2020. A huge poly-metallic (gold, silver, copper) mining operation in Mongolia "has suspended operations" after authorities "restricted the movement of goods and people within the country."

Gold is majestically postured now, because America’s government and central bank continues to borrow, spend, and print money with surreal intensity.

"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was...

Gold has been trading wildly recently. And little wonder, considering the global hunt for liquidity. Where shall the indiscriminate selling stop? In other words, the million-dollar question is, how low could gold go during this decline, and what’s the most likely...

I truly thought I had seen all that was possible in the creation of paper gold when the Comex rolled out its “pledged gold” category which enabled technically insolvent banks like HSBC and JP Morgan – the only two Comex banks to have taken advantage of this new gold...

The simple answer is that is what they are doing, inflating. The slightly less simple answer is that they inflated in 2001 and it worked (for gold, silver, commodities and eventually stocks, roughly in that order). It also worked in 2008-2009 (for gold, silver,...

Mark Twain said that history does not repeat itself, but it rhymes. It’s certainly true in both life and financial markets. Let’s explore how the recent history lessons apply to the precious metals.

The best performing metal this week was palladium, up 37.90 percent, essentially regaining all the losses from the prior two weeks. Platinum and silver also rebounded strongly. Gold headed for its biggest weekly gain since 2008 while platinum and palladium were on...

Would you like to see something scary? I guess not, but I'll show you anyway! But don’t worry: it will not be an microscope image of the coronavirus! Instead, I will present you a chart, a really scary chart… Ready to take a look?

The historical action of the precious metals sector over the past few weeks has continued. The strong recovery in GDX, GDXJ, and Silver has potentially invalidated the technical breakdown that occurred during the crash. It appears to be a failed breakdown.

There are just a handful of events in one’s lifetime that are truly history making in their magnitude. For instance the 1918 Spanish Flu pandemic, the 1929 stock market crash, Pearl Harbor, the 1987 stock market crash and 911 to name a few. When all of those...

Understanding the stock market and its potential through the use of technical analysis and historical price events has been proven repeatedly to outperform all forms of fundamental trading styles. The following is a story that walks you through my experience, the...

After reaching our March $1700 target, gold entered a sharp, liquidity-driven, selloff. Prices plummeted to $1450 but have since recovered ($1642 as I write). So is the bottom in, or should we expect more selling? Our cycle work suggests more selling and a...

On Thursday, we saw the worst jobless claims number in history (and by far). Yet, the S&P500 futures rallied over 200 points from their overnight lows. So, are we to believe that the “cause” of that rally was the jobless claims?

The world suddenly finds itself tipped into the gravest crisis since the 2nd World War, and with respect to the global economy it is actually far worse, because the financial system was teetering on the verge of collapse even before the coronavirus epidemic surfaced...

Last week's trading saw gold forming its low in Monday's session, here doing so with the tag of the 1484.60 figure (April, 2020 contract). From there, a slingshot higher was seen into Wednesday, with the metal running all the way up to a peak of 1699.30 - before...

If one were told that Gold: recorded its "largest-ever" points up-change for a single trading day, (+109 on 24 March), and further that it... recorded its "largest-ever" points up-change from low-to-high across two consecutive trading days (+214, 23-24 March), but...

Let’s begin this week with the daily bars chart for the Dow Jones.  What’s there to say except since February 21st, market volatility has become historic.  This week from Monday’s close to the close of Thursday (the high of the week) the Dow Jones advanced 3,960...

“A minor cycle low coming next week could lead to another quick spike, but we will have to wait until the second week in April for something more important to develop.” You can see by last week’s summary that I had not expected that much of a rally.  If we do not...

“Boot strapping” is an electrical term used to perform a “black start” or a complete “cold start” of a complex electrical grid after a catastrophic failure.  The East Coast blackout of 1965 was one such occurrence.  Another was on the Gulf Coast after hurricane Rita...

A number of factors influence gold prices (mainly the US dollar, gold ETF inflows/ outflows, inflation rate, bond yields, safe haven demand, physical gold demand, gold supply) but none is more reliable than real interest rates.

Our research team continues to dig into underlying patterns and set up in the global markets to assist skilled technical traders in understanding the current Covid-19 virus event and other key technical data.  Recently, we’ve authored a number of detailed research...

Gold is currently showing some strength, with a price over $1600. However, there is still a lot of paper gold selling (where the spot price is determined), and there is no clear direction in price. In fact, I have been saying all year that until silver gets above $...

Our proprietary cycle indicator is up, rising from the lowest level in years. Gold sector remains on long-term buy at the end of February.
