  The Odds Favor A Potential Bottom For Gold Prices Next Week The last two months have been difficult for precious metal investors, and many have turned bearish. Prices have swung wildly in both directions whipsawing even experienced traders into submission. The charts have been difficult to decipher since October, to put it mildly. Nevertheless, […]

  Since August the XAU has displayed the following behavior. A sharp drop followed by a 14-day to 16-day correction that retraces between 50% and 61.8% of the previous decline. Today, prices hit the 50% retracement level and made a bearish reversal candle on the 15th day off the 75.54 low. Prices breaking below the […]

There are two ways to interpret the current cycle count, one bullish and one temporarily bearish.

THE TALE OF TWO CYCLES We currently sit in a precarious position regarding the cycles I follow. The intermediate (6-month) gold cycle is the primary mechanism behind roughly 70% of our timing decisions and therefore a vital component of our system.
