    For your moving averages; i.e., 200sma…. are you using NY spot gold or the active COMEX futures contract; i.e., Feb gold?

    Feb gold is already a smidge over $1,617 while NY spot is hanging around $1,616.

    All Demark DAILY BUY Setups for the major indices that I mentioned yesterday are cancelled with the rally today. GLD BUY because it recorded the other day is still active until tomorrow. GDXJ recorded an imperfect 9 BUY yesterday, good thru Friday. If you remember, we had a whole bunch of SELL Setups on the major indices a few weeks ago that were also cancelled, but we still rolled over anyway.
    BAC BUY setup looks like it might also be cancelled, but it is recording a DAILY Sequential 13 today – good for 12 days – this rally might have legs!

    Hmmmm. Stockcharts shows the 200sma at $1,617.24 and we’re above that.

    Not sure it matters right now. This move looks quite powerful and should take us well above the 200sma.

  4. William Wallace

    Now if the market and gold are to continue strong today the pullback off the 150dma and the 200dma will be just that, the only decent pullback we get today as both break out and chug higher into the close, or the daily highs are put in.

  5. William Wallace


    The 200dma is at $1621 and gold just smacked its head on it, above the 200dma we have the 175dma with the 10dma slanted down and crossing over it at around the $1650 handle, if that dont give gold a hard time the 150dma is at $1670.

  6. William Wallace


    When gold breaks clean above the 200dma, move your stop up to the 220dma currently at $1601.40, then watch those levels of resistance I mentioned in the previous post. Look to take profits 8-10 days into this Daily cycle, which ever level of resistance falls within the timing band. If gold reverses sooner than expected your stop is in place already.

    He was refering to this years movements that silver made historic top im May and failed to do follow Gold in September. And that’s from EW institute

    I don’t want to take any profits till 2012. I don’t want to mail anymore $$ to those looser in Washington.

    >If gold and the market are to reverse its going to be now, if not they will pop above the 200dma and 150dma like they are jumping out of birthday cakes.

    Gold is stopping (again) at the upper trendline I mentioned earlier. This is the 5th time and it clearly had the chance to break above it today. (It is now later in the day when volume dries up for gold – it works different than stocks. So a breakout today is now very unlikely).

    I have to say that I’m starting to get the feeling this is a bear flag on gold. It has a very defined channel at this point with numerous new slight highs repeatedly – all unable to gather any followthrough buying.

    I think we need to be VERY careful here. I really expect this rally to break through and show some results and now I’m not liking the vibe.

  11. William Wallace


    You need to be more patient. Gold is struggling , but so would anything else that just got thrown in a hole. Gold backed off the 200dma today, it’s to be expected.

  12. William Wallace


    Let me be clear..when I said

    “If gold and the market are to reverse its going to be now, if not they will pop above the 200dma and 150dma like they are jumping out of birthday cakes.”

    When I said “reverse now” I meant a pull back off the 200dma, thats exactly what we seen. Now gold is consolidating under the 200dma, which is normal after a pullback off an SMA, and the SPX is holding above the 150dma after it popped out of it.

  13. coolkevs

    ZN Daily SELL Setup in DeMark land is paying dividends today – my small TBT position is up 5% today. Seems like when treasuries selloff, they do for a few days. The 50-day is down at 117.54 in TLT land.

  14. TZ(8155)

    I’m just also saying we have a perfect bearish flag the last 3 days, correct or not.

    I’m still long 1x, but I’ve gotten hurt in the past by not looking both ways on a trade.

    I would also suggest that the mindset of (at least me) and others I know who are eagerly looking up, buying the slight breakouts higher and then seeing it drop back down again – thus forming the flag – is the exact psychology which accompanies such a pattern. So not only is it on the chart, but I’m following and feeling it in my head.

    7/20/10 is a bear flag that looked like now and then plunged lower to a final low.

    conversely, 2/9/10 is a intermediate low which also formed a bear flag, but kept climbing.

    Those two examples for anybody who wants to study a bit. Just my thoughts as we try to figure out what is going on.

    There are a few people including poly that can see and argue for another cycle lower. I’m just making a case and evaluating ‘what if I am wrong’ as prudent measure.

  15. William Wallace


    I hear you, I, as Poly, have been talking about this daily cycle possibly failing also, but its highly unlikely it will roll over in 4 days, and I think Poly would agree with that.

  16. p2000x

    Yeah, I’m just feeling the same, TZ.
    I know it would mean Gold’s gonna grind higer (wall of worry, we all know that) but I simply couldn’t resist this fear and lightened my positions to 0.5x (from 0.8x).
    Well, at least I’m gonna sleep a bit better. So anyway it’s worth it for me.
    On a breakout I may be just adding again, depending on price action dynamics.

  17. p2000x

    My point is, I’m gonna feel much more comfortable above the 200-day…
    And once above it, on any retest that holds (if we ever get one, of course) I’m gonna go agressively long. That’s my short term plan.

  18. Le Fou

    Poly, PC, DG, TZ et al,

    I have a question about trade triggers. I lost a good position a few days ago because I used the “Last” operator as the trigger and the “trade” that caused the trigger to fire was a trade on the MM’s book that he had leftover and used to fill a current order. It was way off the current bid/ask spread. TZ warned me, but now that I’ve learned the hard way, I won’t make that mistake again. This time I’m using the “Ask” operator:

    “If the ask of GDX is less than or equal to 51.1
    Sell 300 GDX at market.”

    Is this how you set your triggers? If not, what do you differently?
    I trade with TDAmeritrade.

    Good trading,
    Le Fou

  19. Strat81

    I think this is the perfect reason why you can’t look at chart patterns in isolation. If sentiment were not as depressed as it is then the result could be a bear flag, but I have to agree with Gary that this chart looks like an intermediate bottom, when taking sentiment into account. Also its funny how GLD vs /GC paint a much different picture on their daily charts. GLD (which you can think of as a US market only /GC) made a lower low than 9/26 and to me it currently looks like a swing low on a stair-step down move has formed.It definitely looks bullish in the short/intermediate term.

  20. William Wallace


    You compared 7/20/10 to the last three days action… gold was on its way down into an intermediate cycle low on 7/20/10 that finally bottomed right on the 150dma, as did every intermediate cycle low of this entire c-wave prior to the july ICL. I dont think its a good idea to compare the move out of a daily and possibly an intermediate cycle low to a move down into an ICL.

  21. William Wallace


    Another thing, I have pointed this out many times in real time during intermediate cycle declines (it enabled me to call the exact bottom in july)…

    on the way down into an ICL gold pauses and crawls the 75dma, then drops to the 100dma and crawls it, then drops to the final ICL on the 150dma. If you look at the IC decline during 7/20/10 with a 100dma applied you’ll see that gold was in fact crawling the 100 (which you labeled a bear flag).

    December 20, 2011 8:20 AM

    I’ve been trying to learn more about how to trade TD indicators since you started posting about them. The TD Sequential is free on TOS and I like it. What does “good thru Friday” and “good for 12 days” mean in your post? I’ve found definitions but not really how best to use or trading rules for the Sequential. Do you have access to other TD indicators you like and can share? In a recent interview I heard TD say his Combo was part of his advanced TA package and related to the Sequential. Can you tell me anything about sourcing the Combo or if it’s worth getting? If you’d prefer to take this off-line, let’s share e-mails. Best, CM

  23. Poly

    Hi Lee Fou,

    Yes that sounds right. Or you could use the trade price for such a liquid stock.

    Although I don’t see at the market, i use a tight limit price that will hit, but won’t get screwed.

  24. diana

    Poly, What if a gap down happens overnight? Wouldn’t the trigger trade still be vulnerable to a bigger loss?

    What do you mean, “use a tight limit price that will hit, but won’t get screwed.”


  25. Phil


    Are you serious?!!! What a complete Hack! Yeah…ummm…these stocks are going up so I think you should buy them now…..

  27. RJ


    I have a serious question I would appreciate if I could get some quick input on.

    I’m thinking of grabbing some 50 ounce bars from First Majestic at 32.50/oz tonight.

    Are there any big issues I need to be aware of other than the storage issues?

    Do I need to pay sales taxes, fed taxes, taxes of any kind? I remember there being commentary that you should buy coins because of some tax advantage.

    Would I have a really big problem down the road (years) selling them? How would you sell a 50 oz bar?

    many thanks.

  28. Phil

    50 oz. Bars are cheap (i.e. Low premium) but are not very liquid. I would stick with 1 oz rounds or ‘junk’ silver to be on the safer side.

  29. KHC


    I bought Silver Bars/coins (couple 1KG bars and many coins) from First Majestic in 2009, and I remember there was no tax. However, I had to pay some shipping plus insurance fees though. Btw, it took about 1 month before I got my silver Bars from First Majestic.

    The only issue is when you try to sell these silver bars/coins from First Majestic to some dealers, you have to sell at a discount (compared to American Silver Eagle coins that might be able to sell at a premium)…..

  30. RJ


    First Majestic has the 1 oz rounds for the same price per ounce, same premium.


    Did you have to sell below spot? Right now they are priced $3 above spot per ounce.

  31. KHC


    My suggestion is that it’s okay to buy Silver Bars/Coins from First Majestic only IF you want to hold those silver bars/coins until the final bubble phase (say Silver at $150/ounce). By that time, I believe that any silver bars/coins can be sold at a premium instead of discounts.

    If you just want to trade Silver short-term, then I would suggest you just buy SLV or PSLV shares. Trading physicals short-term is just wasting money because you will be buying at a premium but selling back at a discount….

  32. KHC


    Those dealers, when buying back Non-American Silver Eagle bars/coins, buy back your silver bars/coins a couple dollars BELOW spot price.

    So you will be paying a premium to buy the Silver bars while selling at a discount back to the dealers.

  33. RJ

    I really want to go long term but you guys are kind of talking me out of it now, at least the FM items.

    On a different note, what happens after the bubble phase. So what if silver hits 150 at the peak in a few years? What will the price be in 2020, 2040, etc?

  34. James

    I think we all should leave some nicknames for Gary regarding his skills at picking bottoms because he is, “The Bottom King!”

  35. KHC


    My personal experience is that I bought Silver Bars/Coins from First Majestic at $17.50/ounce (the premium was like $0.75) when spot price was around $16.75. I sold those bars at $39/ounce when Silver spot price was at $41 (during that 4-day silver crash in May).

    So I spent $0.75 on premium while taking discounts of $2.00 when selling back. This costs me $2.75 per ounce.

    So I swear that I will just stick to SLV or PSLV shares for rest of this bull market as I hate to play this huge spread game…

    Anyway, now I simply hold SLV shares.

  36. KHC


    Depending on how long you are going to hold. My definition of long-term is 2+ years. LOL

    You can definitely buy Silver from FM, but you just need to make sure that you sell at the final bubble phase. (Not sure if this counts as “long-term”? )

    After the final bubble phase is over, Silver will CRASH to unbelievable low price. For example, Silver hit $50 in 1980 and dropped to $9 and below for 20 years…..

    I will definitely dump all my Silver (shares) at the final bubble phase instead of holding them past that phase.

  37. Robert

    We’re three days into a bounce —-and all the gold arrogance is already back ————— my opinion —- they’re setting up the market for a BIG FALL with this attitude. THATS the odds when they go back to bullish this fast —– three days and they are throwing mud at the bears. RARE DOES THAT SIGNAL A LOW of significance

  38. Clarkatroid

    risk assets did a u-turn on this news….

    “The European Central Bank said it had injected a record 489.19 billion euros ($641 billion) into eurozone banks via its first-ever three-year refinancing operation”

    which was more printing than the markets expected is the general jist of it i think

  39. TZ(8155)

    Breakout up and out of the bear flag overnight. Breakdown back into flag this morning. The breakout now looks like a fake.

    If we continue lower here to below about 1605 then this flag will start to look legit and look out below.

  40. Danno

    Markets often ride the upper Bollinger Band, then fall to test the Bollinger Band midline (20ma). If the 20ma of $USD holds, short term traders are screwed. But if price falls below the 20ma, markets often fall all the way to the lower Bollinger Band. We’ll just have to wait and see.

  41. Dan

    This thing felt like a bear flag from the getgo, we should of bounced hard after the waterfall decline but instead we just consolidated in a range.

  42. TZ(8155)

    I was mentioning charting cause you can draw the bear flag I was discussing yesterday.

    If so you see we popped above it overnight and are now back inside – looks like a fakeout at this point.

    Dollar strong again and this flag (and that we broke higher but are not back inside) should raise caution. There could be a good chance now that the flag is real and we head lower to break the bottom and then it will likely get unhappy.

    I just added and bought here cause I often buy quick drops to see if they hold and this one just met my criteria. I don’t know I would call things ‘safe’, but if we are going to continue going up this might be a reasonable point to hold here so I’m taking a shot at a buy (small stop).

  43. TZ(8155)


    Yes, the price is $5 away, but contrary to gary’s comments many other people believe charts mean something. There was some relatively significant chart action overnight. I think we have also broken the 200dma again, but I will defer to WW on the moving average stuff.

    These comments I’m making (and WW usually) are NOT per the “Gary SMT System” so you guys are at your own risk if you start jumping the gun or panicing out of stuff before gary make’s his moves. I’m doing my own stuff here (which I combine with gary’s calls).

  44. Razvan

    i wouldnt read too much into the price action last night. It is not like we had a $200 move up in price and looking for a blow off top.

  45. TZ(8155)

    My stop is near the low 30 min ago in gold and I also sold enough of my futures on this bounce to break even if we continue down.

    I now have *zero* risk in this trade and I am NOT sure the low holds. It just seems like a reasonable bet, but clearly it isnt a hard bet to make with a small stop.

    Just a word of caution to people who may be ‘buying back’ based on my comments. I’m not one to stay around or take a big loss on trades.

  46. Donagh

    FWIW, the price action overnight is likely not that significant. Gold is not thinking for itself, so to speak.

    All risk assets are following each other, – markets are very thin & the algos are probably doing the work. If you pull up a minute-by-minute chart of Gold & compare with the EUR/USD chart, they are more or less the same. The overnight pop in the Euro dragged everything up with it. Euro got smacked by resistance at 1.32 and dropped straight back down, bringing everything else with it. Range-trading likely for rest of the week. My 2 cents anyway!

  47. TZ(8155)

    AT EASE,

    Just remember that gary is long, not leveraged, patient, and still positive on the situation.

    From a risk adjusted point of view he is hard to beat. I’m doing a different thing here (but his advice helps me adjust my trades one way or the other.)

  48. james r

    Look on the positive. It will keep sentiment in check while gold climbs the wall of worry.

    And will keep posters (trolls) like Brutless coming back for more punishment.

  49. Tiho

    There is no Gold moving into a bubble phase yet. You are all too early and hopefully not using tight stops coz you will all be stopped out. Gold will correct for a couple of more months at least.

    After 750 days above the 200 day MA, Gold is not going to just trade 3 days below it and that’s that. We are still going lower and until we shake out you perma-bullish lot, Gold bubble phase will not be here.

  50. William Wallace

    As I mentioned a couple days ago, the 200dma shouldn’t be a problem this early in the cycle, and we seen that last night when gold ripped right through it as if it weren’t there.

  51. William Wallace


    I believe last night was a sell the news event, although I have my reservations about whether or not this daily cycle will fail or not, I dont think its ready to rollover yet. The stock market would have to sell off hard, and im not convinced that that’s about to happen. Anything could happen, we all know that…lets see how things go, good to hear you locked in profits at $1631.

  52. Harry

    Does anyone else use the 233 hourly SMA as a substitute for the 10 DMA? I find it works really well for GC. That’s precisely where we got turned back last night.

  53. MBS

    Any thoughts on the fact that SPX intermediate cycle is 11 weeks deep and at this point is extremely left translated, topping in only 3 weeks? Are we running out of time for the market to break the Oct highs? Isn’t this the transformation that is necessary to pull bears back into the long side and throw the towel in on short bets? thanks

  54. p2000x

    Although tempting, I’m gonna stick to my plan and not buy this gold pullback until we get decisively above the 200-day and make a backtest that holds.
    Close, but not quite there yet. Till then it’s a no-trade for me.

  57. coolkevs

    DeMark (using the poor man’s thinkorswim Sequential study):
    Treasury trade a la ZN futures continues to work even on a down day in the market – 2 more days left. Kevin Depew on his twitter feed actually shows a TLT DAILY TD Sequential 13 SELL a couple of days ago, confirmed by a bearish price flip today – I just don’t see it on thinkorswim…sigh
    The VIX is showing a perfected DAILY BUY Setup today – will Santa’s sleigh get upended??
    A few stocks that are selling off today were showing DAILY BUY Setup’s though – ORCL, VMW, ZAGG, RHT – perhaps some kind-of a bounce in tech land might be forthcoming after today’s nastiness!

    Tomorrow is the last day of the DAILY BUY setup upside reaction in GC gold futures. 1616.60 could be qualified on the downside if lower open tomorrow, so we shall see.

    Interesting – KBH reported today – according to Depew, it has confirmed a MONTHLY BUY signal that recorded in July (I show this on my thinkorswim as well), so it should be a strong year for the homebuilders believe it or not!

  58. Strat81

    Gold bounced right off the 38.2% retracement of the move down from the swing high at 1767.10 to the swing low at 1565.70. The retracement level is at 1642.60. The high of the session was 1643.70.

  59. TZ(8155)

    End of day thoughts on gold.

    Broke above bearish flag pattern last night, sucked in some buyers, then crashed back down through it today on large volume spikes (blowing out stop levels). Looks like a fakeout at this point.

    Not the best thing to see, but not clearly broken at this point.
    Still…the odds of gold going down from here have now increased in my view. I dare say many other people are eyeing the door as well.

    Going below 1605 takes us out of the flag to the downside. Going below 1590 approx starts putting in lower lows and probably triggers a bunch of stops.

    Gary doesn’t so much look at charts or patterns (unless he wants to πŸ™‚ but he has mentioned flags before so I think there is some relevance.

    I bought the pullback today, but it didn’t follow through and stopped me out even.

    Still 1x and looking for danger signs (going up will take care of itself). Will see what gary says tonight also.

  60. TZ(8155)

    I will likely buy the 1590 area since I think that will hold (if only for a bounce). Should that fail I won’t have much confidence left.

    “By the book” would mean waiting until the 1562 low is breeched, but:

    A) I don’t want the reduction of profits to that point.

    B) Due to the strong nature of the intermediate decline and expected strength of a rebound *IF* we have indeed bottomed I do not believe that we should return back down to anywhere NEAR the 1562 low. If we start heading for that zone at this point I will perceive a problem well before we get there.

    In other words this low or bounce should not be a case of “we will retest it to within a few bucks and then resume higher”. This thing should be climbing well up and away from this low – period.
    (I could be wrong, as always).

  61. p2000x

    I’m with you on that, TZ.
    Still holding my 0.5x but on the lookout for trouble signs, lol.

    Hope it’s just another brick in the wall of worry though…

  62. p2000x

    Well, in hindsight, I should’ve placed a hard stop at 1640 as it was an obvious fib-target and a pivot also, but hell I hate using those damn stops…
    Sometimes they have their place though.

  63. TZ(8155)

    Adding to the party I see tonight that Poly was likewise saying he was considering raising stops above the low at 1562 just like I have already done (he didn’t yet).

    The comment was “..I believe price does not belong anywhere near those levels now [the gold 1562 low]..” (Hope I can quote you Poly)

    I agree. If we get there and break down anybody with a stop at that point is likely going to get some pretty bad slippage (and also give up unnecessary gains since we really shouldn’t come close at this point.)

    We will see what happens as always.

  64. TZ(8155)

    My stop isn’t much above the low (yet) but it isn’t *AT* the low cause I don’t want to get steamrolled by a few thousand contracts getting dumped on trading screens across the world.

    (My comments are for futures. GDX people have slightly different concerns and situation. And remember I’m only hypthesizing here. All may be well.)

  65. William Wallace

    If gold breaks below the 220dma support (which offered hard resistance on the way up) it will most likely test and possibly find support on the 250dma (currently $1574)and Friday’s low.

  66. Phil

    Based on this morning’s action (gold was breaking out and then stopped short again by “news”) I think your system is right V. If not, I’m really starting to lose faith in the paper market and will likely convert to physical soon and exit ‘the game’ as it has become extremely tiresome…..and we all know the ultimate outcome.

  67. William Wallace

    If the recent bottom wasn’t historic, it is close enough to the historic bottoms of the past ten years – the 275 and 300dma. As I have always said, I doubt we will see gold dip below the 300dma.

  68. Rob

    coolkevs, you refer to using a form of Demark system with Think-or-Swim software. I am using TOS, and although I find an indicator called “Demarker Indicator” within the charting studies, I don’t find any form of Demark countdown or similar study. Do you count manually? His systems are not available without an expensive charting system that I am aware of. Tom Demark was on Bloomberg about ten days ago and stated the market was going to peak around today.

  69. William Wallace

    The 200dma is about to cross below the SPX head and shoulders neckline, I will begin building my SPX short position again soon, I believe we may see a reversal off the neckline currently around 1257.

  70. Phil

    Faber seems to have a pretty good handle on this mess. The most recent porter stansberry letter is also worth a read….basically says what needs to be said but doesn’t matter since no one will do anything about it!!

  71. GottaHaveIt


    How many moving averages do you follow?

    I’ve seen you mention the 75,100, 150,220 and 300 in the last day or so.

    How do you decide which dma is most important at any given time?

  72. William Wallace

    Looking at a gold weekly, I can see gold pulling back to the historical support of the 75wma if this daily cycle topped today in an extremely left translated manner. Currently at $1493.

  73. Phil

    Lately I’ve been getting this weird feeling that I would be better off daytrading amzn or aapl or cmg or goog or sbux etc….I think my weird feeling is right—-for the next couple of months at least

  74. riley

    WW I was looking at 1461-67 worst case scenario, not sure if will even attempt short of gold if breaks 1600. Looking more into shorting e-mini in next 5 days. Like what Poly sees.

    If you are out there …

    THANK YOU for posting your “BUY” signal in the subs forum on Monday!

    I bought some SSO at the close on Monday and sold it today for a quick $1K profit (+5%) … don’t want to let profits slip away in this market!

    The 10 year treasury yield is due for a rally on the weekly chart IMO. Just bounced off the lower BB this week and the bands are narrowing in dramatically on the weekly chart. Given where the MACD is, I would be surprised if it broke down from here. Pretty decent positive divergence. In any event something dramatic is going to happen within the next couple of weeks IMO.

    The ten year yield inflection points are very important for PMs, especially silver, and even more so for mining stocks.

    Using CYCLES-

    Is it Impossible for THIS to be a NEW ICL and drop to $1400’s, then recover and go to new highs?

    Is it possible to have this really be a 4th dcl, and a 5th? whats the most DAILYS you can have?? I’m trying to figure out a possible drop in gold with T/A , Cycles, and so on.

    I imagine if this was NOT an ICL, but the 4th daily…we could plunge in the 4th to $1450….and Gold ICL could be put in there.

    THAT (IF TRUE) 5 dailys was the answer i was looking for. Thanks .

    I’m sure if it’s not correct, someone would correct us.

    I Have been looking for a way to justify (CYCLE_WISE) another drop, because I DIDNT get my SIGNAL that I find at all the deeper lows from 2002 to 2008. SO I would assume we need one more dip.

    I drew 2 charts with possibilities IF THIS were 4th daily. ( I actually used a 4th 5th and 6th, but we dont need 6.

    THX again…I’ll post charts

    CHART #1

    For WW

    I added his 3 favorite moving Avges to cause price to form a H&S πŸ™‚

    I used 3 dailys, but it can be done with 2 more (the 4th and a 5th)


    also notice our SMALL failed tri-angle, has become a LARGE in tact tri-angle.

    MAYBE with this, I’d get my signal.

    WW– notice the H&S forms within your moving avges

    Alex from Gary’s info:
    IC lasts average 20 wks been stretching long lately as gold moves into the next 8 year cycle. DC’s run 20 to 30 days also stretching with secular bull.
    20×7=140/25=5.6 averaged out.

  82. ALEX

    CHART #2

    This would lead to a drop to $1450 area I believe.

    On the GLD, there is a LOT of support in the area marked .

    Again, I used 3 dailys, but if thats not likely, 2 dailys and a sharp fast drop to the real ICL?


    I have noticed that we seem to bottom regularly JULY/AUG and then FEB. 2 Dailys get us there.

    BUT, I am quite invested right now, and I still expected that this COULD BE the ICL , and that we could take off this and next week ( I was hoping!!), but I am posting this because NOW…DAY BY DAY, and I will allow the markets to TELL ME what they want to do!!

    They never listen to me anyways


  83. ALEX


    I am still just wondering if this is the ICL.

    Even though they stretch out 20 wks, I dont think we can put in an ICL , and then drop to $1450 (like my second chart) based on things Gary has said recently about people saying we may drop again.

    Chart 1 I believe fits, chart 2 doesnt fit an ICL being in.

    Alex, Would love to see this turn around now and be a fake out, but always a chance this bottoms in Jan/Feb timeframe as originally anticipated. Or it could happen right in between now and Jan/Feb timeframe. Anything possible with the way dollar is behaving.

    Take a look at the 06′ bottom with a 250dma (which we basically just bottomed on) and 275dma applied, if the 06 model were to playout you’ll see a pull back to the 275dma from here before putting in an ICL.

  86. ALEX


    You mentioned the dollar and I agree.

    I Cant get a read on it yet. It all goes back to this chart I posted a week ago…where are we??


    WW…this is the 06 bottom :]

    I’ll look at it with the s 250 & 275 as you say.

    By the way WW , your in U.S. right? When do you sleep?? Me too.

  87. William Wallace


    This was the 06′ bottom:

    Bounced off the 250dma, hit resistance at the 175dma in 9 days, then dropped to the ICL on the 275dma….correction complete.

    Time for bed, see its you who always pops up at 1 AM and keeps me up late! πŸ™‚

    WW as per Gary’s report, 1607 was the level for the confirmation that a swing is formed..still waiting on USD to confirm though.

    GOLD USD price on netdania is 1602.41

  89. Rishi

    well, it needs to be read together..it simply says that if a swing is formed both on gold and usd, then exit longs. according to my charts, a swing is formed on gold, and am not sure about usd at the moment.

    S&P500 may experience at least one more significant pop up short term.

    When the MACD line crosses up over the horizontal zero mark it can cause price to pop. This is what we saw in $SPX on Monday.

    When the MACD line crosses up over the MACD signal line, that can also cause price to pop. This looks likely to happen either today or Friday. (FYI the higher above the horizontal zero mark a crossover occurs the more bullish it is considered to be. So this potential crossover is good, but not wildly bullish.)

  91. Shalom Bernanke

    I’m not selling anything. It’s tough to tell where we are, but if this turns out to be an ’08 type deflationary event, then I would be inclined to think the miners bottom months before the S&P.

    Back then, miners quit going down 4 months before the S&P stopped it’s decline in March ’09.

    We’ll see, but it sure feels like the bottom could fall out! πŸ™‚

    Good luck.

  92. Shalom Bernanke

    Or course, the miners also started going down hard 4-5 months before the S&P back then as well. Although many of my miners bounced pretty hard on Tuesday, I have to admit I’d preferred to see smaller gains but with more follow through in the days after the bounce.
