taken the last few weekends mostly off and skipped out on the free weekend
letter. I’ve got no particular reason for it, I just felt like I needed
a little break to enjoy friends and family and the unbelievable weather
we’re having this summer.
likely take a few more off as well but I thought I’d get one out this
weekend as this particular Saturday mornings is pretty slow, at least after a
family breakfast and couple hours of playtime with four of my really cool fun
markets have been mostly taking some time off as well as they are not
trending up, or down, rather they are relatively rangebound
which is good for short-term trading which we’ve been taking advantage
of when we can.
take a look at the precious metals charts whom are building out nice bases
still and in this time they are basically doing what I’ve been doing,
resting and taking some time off getting ready for a massive push.

we are looking to enter another GLD trading position for a few months as the
seasonal time for gold to move up begins now and the stars seem to be aligned
being said we always have to use stops and in this type of market, tighter
stops are best with uncertainly and rhetoric coming out of Europe still while
most anyone who’s voice seems to matters is on
the beach, but they are still talking.
they are a few sangria’s in and have more bravery than normal, hence
the bold talk of saving the Euro and the whole system in general.

a possible entry point.

me cautious on a trading basis. I’d prefer to see a little
consolidation and then maybe take a trade on a break above $1,635 or so.

see a larger move out of both gold and silver but it wasn’t to be, yet.

mind taking a ride with a few trading positions.

futures which means there are more sellers than

time to fill up the rest of your allocation for physical gold and silver.

pattern. The $1,385 area is strong support thus far while the breakout point
on the upside is the $1,430 level for now.
upside breakout should see a very quick move to the 100 day moving average
which coincides with chart resistance at the $1,500 level.

market. Any break needs high volume to confirm the move.
rose 0.87% for the week past and is also in a large triangle pattern which is
getting close to a resolution.
know these consolidation pattern can be boring and
take time but they are what is needed for the big moves.

volatility, it will be back before we know it, but hopefully not until the

PALL ETF saw heavy volume as palladium topped out Tuesday and fell the
Wednesday and Thursday.

million in quick losses to the company involved.

not a lot to us, but to them it adds up to huge gains over the space of a day
when they can do thousands of trades or in many cases hundreds of thousands.
high frequency computers make our job a little harder but a sound trading
plan and excellent entries and exits still trump them and make much more
money on a single trade.

They are looking to South America, British Columbia, the Tien

still issuing daily letters to subscribers where I cover whatever is relevant
at the time as well as any leading stocks who are setup to move as well as

dividend portfolio which pays from 7% to 15% annually and is definitely
paying our bills!
a great weekend and week ahead and thank you for reading.
