We have been on a rocket ship ride for a month now in Gold & Miners.  Whenever someone posts a "Rocket" as a headline picture in their report,  we usually immediately get a pullback.  I'm ready, so I thought that I would give it a try 🙂


This is the rocket (this was my chart from Feb 16).

Still Climbing

Precious metals and especially individual miners keep climbing higher. Wave after wave, the dust buyers and shorts are getting hammered.  This wasn't entirely unexpected, that is why I mentioned taking some profits and letting partial positions ride.  This runaway , melting upward type of move can be rewarding, but cycle wise, it is will  pause or pull back soon.  We'll discuss that. The markets were moving up off of their lows too, but they stalled on Thursday.  Oil turned back down too.  To the charts...


  It's Friday, so there isnt much to say with only 1 trading day left, but lets take a look and see what we can learn.

This was 1 of my 2 Gold charts from Thursday mornings report. Gold actually hit $1240 as the day went on, so it looks like that flag pattern could form.  While it does look like that Flag pattern could form, I actually think we may see something else too.

Mary, Mary, Quite Contrary, How…?

Even in the toughest of environments, we see seedlings take root and blossoms shoot up. We also see the same thing happen in the toughest environment in the markets.   At the time it may seem quite contrary, but this is also how bear markets can turn into Bulls.  Are we seeing that now?  lets look at some charts...


Starting with the SPX. We have expected this rally , but will it lead to new highs, or will it roll over?


I think that this move is just starting and it can last for a couple of weeks.   Notice how the Rally in October didn't lead to new highs and broke down to lower lows. We have lower highs and lower lows in the markets now. I have drawn in several resistance points and we will see how the markets react as time goes on. This is NOT near a point that I would short it.  I would remain long,  maybe lighten up in a week or so. The BLUE BOX is an idea of what we may see.

We will obviously discuss what's unfolding as time goes on, but take a look at this...
