AFTERNOON UPDATE (POST FED BREAKDOWN?)

Wed, 1 May 2019

  The Fed left interest rates unchanged- no surprise. They noted inflation was below their 2% goal. That could open the door for a rate cut later this year. The dollar declined after the news. Gold turned positive momentarily, but prices may be reversing back lower.   The 4-hour gold chart remains in a descending […]

AFTERNOON UPDATE

Mon, 29 Apr 2019

  Markets want to know if the Fed will cut rates in 2019. Currently, markets are pricing in about a 41% chance of at least one rate-cut in 2019. They announce Wednesday; no rate hike/cut is expected.   GDX UPDATE–>  Gold and miners may get a little tricky before Wednesday’s Fed announcement. Closing below $20.20 […]

QUICK PLATINUM UPDATE

Mon, 22 Apr 2019

  Platinum could be working on a breakout. Prices pulled back and successfully retested the $880 level. A rally above $930 would trigger a breakout above the medium-term trendline. The 200-day MA is beginning to turn up. Maintaining $880 is critical.

MORNING UPDATE 8:55 AM

Thu, 18 Apr 2019

  I’m still not convinced gold and silver are breaking down, just yet. The 4-hour gold chart is trying to reverse near the $1275 level. An intra-day bullish engulfing candle formed after gold struck $1273. The MACD (bottom indicator) is crossing over bullishly with a mildly positive divergence.   4-HOUR GOLD CHART: To support a […]

MORNING UPDATE

Wed, 17 Apr 2019

  Good Morning, I get the sense metals, and miners will either find support near $1275 and bounce or break directly lower within the next few days. Scenario 1) Upside target between $1360 – $1380 Scenario 2) Downside target between $1225 – $1250 I’ll update again later.

QUICK BITCOIN UPDATE

Wed, 3 Apr 2019

  Here are my thoughts on bitcoin. Prices could rebound to the $5500-$6000 area. Overall, I think prices will grind sideways between $3000 – $6000 for several months. At some point, prices will break below $3000 and test $1000. It would take a high-volume move above $8000 to restore a bullish tone. https://cryptowat.ch/markets/bitfinex/btc/usd/1d

MORNING NOTE 10:10 AM

Fri, 1 Mar 2019

  April gold is below $1310 and tested $1305 this morning. Prices are bouncing slightly, currently at $1312.11. Closing today above $1315 would support a bounce. Declining below $1305 and then $1300 could trigger a sharp selloff.   -GDX- The morning gap was filled within the first 30-minutes of trading. Closing above $22.40 today would […]

AFTERNOON UPDATE (MINERS BREAKING DOWN)

Wed, 27 Feb 2019

  It looks like gold and miners are breaking lower; downside selling pressure has accelerated. Miners are well below their previous gap levels. Depending on today’s close, it looks like we have an exhaustion gap sell signal. Last weeks increased stops performed well and got me out of NUGT and USLV. I have open swing […]

MORNING UPDATE 10:50 AM

Wed, 27 Feb 2019

It looks like gold has broken lower out of the small triangle consolidation. However, we are yet to see an accelerated decline. That may occur if April gold slides below $1320. -GDX- Not a lot of upside follow-through after yesterday’s bullish reversal attempt. Slipping below $22.36 could trigger another wave of selling, especially if gold […]
