Subconscious

I have decided to release a large part of my last weekend report to the public, so that you can see what we at Chartfreak have been looking at.   Enjoy.

'

Have you ever heard someone say, "In the back of my mind, I was thinking about..." ? Well, in this weekend report I'm going to discuss my analysis ( technical / Cycles / etc)  and the conclusions that are drawn from that, but I also wanted to mention a few things that have subconsciously been  ' in the back of my mind ' in a few areas.

 

SPX - Friday I pointed out that we could bounce here, but I still expect a bit more of a drop after a bounce.

We did get the bounce at multiple support areas after filling a lower gap & 'buy the dip' has been working. Now we could fill the overhead gap.

 

These patterns do look similar with a continuing rally, and some may think that it would lead to further rally upside...

But ' in the back of my mind '...

“Where Have You Been?”

I received a couple of emails recently from the public readers ( one was an old friend, Thanks Bob C. !) , either asking where have I been when it comes to my public posts, or asking me to review what I have been seeing lately. I've been very busy this spring with the premium reports and a private chat area that we have in there, plus other outdoor activities and responsibilities that I care for every spring, but as for a review? I  would be happy to do that. 🙂

 

The General Markets became choppy in March and I was expecting a drop into a daily cycle low. I estimated that the 50sma would be a good target.

For over a month things were choppy and difficult to trade really, until we got a directional break. The drop was not as sharp as I had imagined,  so some of the trades that I was taking were working out, but others lacked follow through, got choppy,  and stopped me out.  I admit that this was choppy and a difficult environment to trade in.

 

From April 25 - Currently we see a pattern of consolidation and then moves higher ( With pullbacks along the way).  We do have a FOMC MTG this week, and there is a chance that that may cause the markets to dip into a low

PUBLIC REPORT – Breaking Out

In several of my last public reports, I presented the Precious Metals markets as bullish.  Have you been able to take advantage of that?  At Chartfreak, we have been confident and able to make great gains in this sector since the December lows.  I want to again share with the public some of our weekend report.  This weekend we  just kept it simple.  This is some of what we have discussed recently in the premium side of Chartfreak.

I am going to skip the general markets , Oil, Natgas, etc. and just go right to…

.

GOLD, SILVER, & MINERS

.

THIS SECTOR REMAINS RIGHT ON TRACK WITH MY EXPECTATIONS FROM THE DECEMBER LOWS. I repeatedly cautioned against over trading or getting too cute and losing position.  If you are new here, please read my report on what it means to ‘Get too cute’ during a Bull run, click the link below to go there.

DON’T GET TOO CUTE

.

I’m going to keep this really really simple this weekend.

 

GOLD DAILY – This is a bullish chart and suffered no damage after FED WEDNESDAY. The dip at the end of January has recovered and I have us on day 5.

 

GOLD WEEKLY – GOLD has now recovered the drop below Mays ICL.   I still see a Bullish big picture, the Weekly MACD is turning higher.

SILVER – SILVER dropped on Friday, but it tagged the 10sma and recovered. That drop to the Thicker RED ARROW  was also the 50sma. Silver is on the Bullish Track too.

GDX – Miners  MIGHT want to dip down a bit inside of this rising channel, but it remains an upward sloping bullish channel. GDX has danced around the rising 10 sma and remains bullish.

 

GDXJ – This finally got above the 200sma .  Let’s keep it simple, it remains bullish at this point.  See the weekly chart below, even a drop to  $37.50 would be great.

 

GDXJ WKLY –  I cannot tell you enough how bullish this set up can be.   Wait – Yes I can, It is VERY BULLISH from what I have seen in the past.  GDXJ has run from $27 ish to $40 ish and looks like it wants to go back to 2016 highs eventually.  That’s a BIG MOVE higher after that long drop at the end of 2016. Can this drop to $37.50, the lower trend line?  Yes, and it would still remain very bullish.

To keep it simple, this precious metals sector remained Bullishly aligned, even after the Fed Week Meeting. The daily reports will monitor the activity as it unfolds going forward.  Newer subscribers, if you have time, why not go back and read some of the recent report from the past couple of weeks to see what we have been discussing & anticipating.  Again, enjoy your weekend!

So that was excerpts from the weekend report. For this Pubic report, let me share just a few more charts of the Miners from the Tuesday report, to add confidence to the bullishness of this sector thus far.

GDXJ WKLY –  Do you remember the Bullish chart that I posted of GDXJ above? This is the same wkly chart after Mondays trading. I told my readers that this was a bullish set up and no we see why I said that.

We bought the lows in December and I have repeatedly discussed with my readers why they did NOT want to over trade these positions.  I repeatedly mentioned that in this bullish set up, the selling could be minimal and difficult to buy back at a lower price.   Now, after a January consolidation, we see that that has been the case.  Many Miners began breaking out over resistance areas on Monday too. Let’s take a look…

 

NG – This did not have a big pullback, it consolidated December gains and started breaking out mid day Monday.

NG  – BY the close it was a lot higher. We are glad that we were not scared out of our positions.

PVG – Breaking out midday Monday, hardly a pull back here  during January too.

 

PVG was up over 13% by the close!  Again, at Chartfreak I reminded investors repeatedly not to get nervous and sell, losing positions.  We are not over-trading our positions since buying the Dec lows.

GORO – Breaking out Midday on Monday.

GORO followed through into the close.

PAAS WKLY –  You cannot deny that PAAS is a champion. It has returned to the 2016 highs already and others are not too far behind. This is a real confidence builder, isn’t it?

So using  Cycle analyses, technical analyses, and other methods that I have developed over the years, we have been doing very well with out positions in the miners.  For my readers, the reports have built confidence in the sector and various set ups that present themselves over time.  I will continue to monitor the move going forward and then there will be a time that it will be advantageous to gather some profits.   We then will see if we are presented with another opportunity to buy the dip.  This will be covered in future reports.  If you think that this type of analyses would help you with your style of trading, why not give us a try with a 1 month or quarterly membership? We also have a ‘chat’ section below each daily report where experienced traders gather and discuss their trades.  With your experience and another set of eyes, these reports could very well pay for themselves. Thanks for being here in the Public Section too!

What’s In Your Wallet?

What have the readers at Chartfreak been looking at as the best near term investment?  Since the lows were put in in December, we have been buying and focused on Miners.  I did expect a pause or pullback in January, but I also wrote a special report telling my readers "Not to get too cute"  and over trade this sector, because more upside was on the horizon.  On the blog, last week I wrote specifically about GDX, see post: https://chartfreak.com/2017/01/market-vectors-gold-miners-gdx/ I've decided to give you a portion of the member report sent before Fed Wednesday.  The report covered all of the markets, but the main focus has been on the Precious Metals sector. So the following is a part of Wednesday's precious metals section. Read More

I pointed out the below chart of Cliff Natural Resources ($CLF) in the premium member report. Is it too late to take a trade when it jumps up 11%?  Not when I look at the big picture.

JANUARY 2017 – WHAT TIME IS IT?

It's time to see what 2017 has to offer us as traders and investors!

We've started the new year and trading has already been very exciting in various sectors that we at Chartfreak have been looking into.  So 'What time is it?'  It's also time to get on board and make some money in a variety of bullish set ups that are appearing in the markets!  This is a glimpse what we have been looking at lately.

 

GOLD - I love deep sell offs, because they can lead to strong bounces or recovery.  We were waiting for a close above the 10sma. Some Miners bottomed first, but Gold needed to close above the 10sma to start a bullish move higher.

Precious Metals – Alive Or Dead?

Precious Metals - Alive Or Dead

I see a lot of people have started absolutely hating Precious Metals and Miners in recent weeks, and that is understandable.  Gold, Silver, and the Miners have taken a dive, especially since the recent Election results in the U.S.  They cannot seem to catch a bid, and each reversal just doesn't seem to stick, even though Oil and Metals like Steel, Aluminum, and Copper rocketed higher. 

We have to ask: Is the Bull dead or Alive in this sector?

 

Here at Chartfreak, we have been discussing this extensively throughout the past several weeks.  I'd like to open up a portion of the weekend report from Dec 4th, along with a few charts from earlier reports, to show how we have been monitoring these areas.  Enjoy.

As of Nov 18th,  GDX was already at an important Fib retracement of 61.8%, so we looked for the sell off to stop in this area.

RECALCULATING ROUTE

Have you ever been driving along using your GPS and you decide that maybe you're going to take a short cut to your destination?  The GPS detects that you have left the designated course and immediately needs to compensate by announcing, "Recalculating Route!".  Well last week sectors of the markets took sharp detours right after the elections. Using over 50 charts, this weekend report will discuss the road we find ourselves on now.

 

SPX - Nov 1st , Expecting a trade-able  ICL, maybe in the 2070 area.

GOLD AND THE USD

CAN GOLD CONTINUE TO RISE, SINCE THE USD IS MOVING HIGHER TOO?

.

That question and other ones similar to it keep coming up lately and understandably so.  Gold usually drops when the USD rises, but lately we do see both rising at the same time. I called a low in Gold recently and have been trading in the Precious Metals sector, but some are having a hard time believing it when they see the USD rising too.  Allow me to share my thoughts on this. The following 4 charts are from the weekend report, where I tried to help my readers see the answer that question.

GOLD AND THE USD

 

CHART #1 -The USD has slowly been approaching the Highs of 2015. The chart does look quite bullish, but it does also show prior lows being taken out and lower highs so far.
