The precious metals had a flash in the pan move
higher on Federal Reserve news this week but I wasn’t buying it, the
charts simply weren’t looking great. And then we saw weakness set in as
it should have.
still a long-term bull in terms of precious metals but they are still looking
weak at the moment.
real somber news hit Friday out of Connecticut
where unspeakable acts took place.
and trading is all fine and good but at times like these we have to
appreciate what really matters in our life and that is family, health and
investing and trading can certainly enhance our experiences with loved ones
this is perhaps not the weekend to get into too much about it.
will be very brief today and go better spend some time this weekend.
Gold only fell 0.46% this past week. It really looks
to me as if we need to test the 200 day moving average at $1,660 before we
can begin to look for signs of a bottom.
move on Wednesday was a classic trap move higher and it reversed not long
after it’s spike that day.
just don’t see anything conducive to higher prices in the gold chart
being said, there are several very nice moves happening in some leading
stocks that we are in and capturing nice gains with just in time for
fell much harder than gold at 2.38% for the week. It’s
spike Wednesday was also much more pronounced than that of gold. As usual,
silver is acting like gold’s more volatile cousin.
spike higher caught a lot of traders attention and
they jumped on it only to see things reverse hard. In my daily updates I
often show the GLD and SLV ETF charts and it was clear on the SLV chart that
the spike only filled a gap left back on December 3rd.
am still looking at the $31 level as a support level in silver that is likely
to be hit soon.
could mean this week, or it could mean by early 2013.
Platinum ended the week up only 0.57% after a failed
breakout move higher.
week I said the wedge was looking good for higher prices any day now and we
saw a nice move out of the wedge with increasing volume which is what you
always need to see for a move to be sustainable.
Platinum moved back below its breakout level and into the wedge which is
always a sell signal, preferably at cost, and not a small loss.
simply not quite ready but it is still looking good with the breakout level
still at $1,625.
many stocks lately we’ve seen false breakouts like this occur only to
see a real breakout a few days later.
false breakout discourages traders and they often lose interest and
don’t buy the next breakout which actually works.
there is a good setup, you’ve got to take the trade as many times as it
takes while keeping losses small or non-existent.
try to move with as few people on board as possible and we’ve got to be
aware of these games that are played and constantly changing.
an eye on this one as it can move nicely higher, and very soon, and for real
rose only 0.06% this past week. I’ve been saying that taking profits
near the $700 area was a good idea. I also said we could see a handle type of
pattern form here to complete a very powerful cup and handle pattern.
is exactly what we’re seeing here. This is a very powerful pattern.
A move above recent highs at $706 is
the buy point.
an eye on this or the PALL ETF and possibly take a trade in it. This next
move could be huge but also keep in mind what I said earlier about false
could see a false breakout and if we do and you have the trade I’d
suggest taking small profits early on any signs of weakness and waiting for
the real breakout a few days later.
course nobody can predict the future and I’m not trying to, I’m
just reading the chart and putting in recent experiences.

thoughts go out to all those who are being affected by the tragedy in
Connecticut this weekend and over this holiday season.
please take time to be grateful for everything we have.
life is certainly not perfect and I can’t think of anyone whose life is
but I still awake every day and think of all the great things in my life and
how grateful I am for them.
