US markets are
looking to be in a bit of trouble here for the first time in 2012 now a the European debt crisis is going to come back in full
force this week.
European markets, specifically the DAX, is breaking down
on strong volume and the US markets look ready to follow.
the bright side some of the fastest and largest returns I’ve ever had
in the swing trading portfolio have come on corrections lower.
good news can be found when looking at gold and silver who
look to have bottomed now and set to move higher soon as they really are the
best safe place to weather this storm.
the mining shares are sold out and some are moving up sharply now while many
others are set to soon follow.
rose 1.81% this past week but still has lots of work to do. The confluence of
moving averages here all the way to the $1,700 area could take a couple more
weeks to best and that is great as a strong base needs to be built here as a
support level if it is ever needed in the future.
remains on sale down here along with the mining shares whom remain sold out
and are beginning to move up now nicely in some cases.
is a time to be buying the shares and also some more gold and silver if that
is in the cards for your investing plan.
do not think we will see gold fall any further than this area but then again
if a huge order is dumped on the market it could, but this last effort to
smash gold had a very short and limited effect which tells me gold is all but
the GLD ETF and the futures volume was mediocre for
the week as there is no real conviction either way for the moment.
fell 0.55% over the last week and remains within a $2 range between $31 and
with gold the moving averages here are going to take a bit more time to best
and that is great. It gives wise investors more time to get some more
physical silver and will build a strong base to move higher out of.
wouldn’t be expecting great things for a week or two out of silver
unless this European crisis hits hard this coming week and European and US indexes are looking ready for a drop here so it could
well as the markets anticipate and lead crisis for the most part.
volume for silver was pretty decent as traders are buying future contracts
for the next big push higher in silver which is imminent and not far away while
the SLV ETF volume was nothing to speak of.
ETF volume generally picks up as a breakout of a chart pattern is occurring
as it’s really just a trading vehicle and we do need to see that high
volume to confirm a move, although last time it was perfect and still did not
work, but I’ve talked about that blatant smashing enough the past
fell 0.81% this past week. While technically the wedge is breaking down to
the downside, the horizontal support level and 100 day moving average is
holding the price here for now. We’ll see soon if this
remains is to be.
me it looks like we are going to breakdown lower unfortunately which would
take platinum down to the $1,500 support area.
the PPLT ETF as well as the futures volume is confirming my view that we are
heading lower as more volume is coming in on push days lower.
rose 1.47% this past week and looks good here.
61% Fibonacci retracement level I posted here last week is holding well and
the chart looks to be near completing a little rounded bottom.
you’re into trading this ETF or the futures then the next buy point is
a move above the 38% retracement level which is exactly where the 100 day
moving average is at the moment. That level is $665.
in both the futures and the PALL ETF confirm my view that we are heading
higher soon with stronger volume on up days than down days.
is much more predictable than gold and silver and is much easier to trade as
Walker of the GFMS group is once again suggesting gold companies hedge a portion of their gold
output as the future for the gold price is not as strong as
it’s been recently, according to Paul. He even went as far as to say ”You could see gold well south of $1000/oz at some juncture in the not too distant future.”
suggest this action is reckless at best and fraudulent at worst in my opinion.
gold may indeed take on a correction and actually decline this year or
perhaps only rise 5% or another small number, to think this gold bull market
is over is admitting that he knows nothing about monetary history.
the shortest form I can muster, monetary history consists of this.
begins backed by gold and silver. Over time this link is diminished and then
cut all-together. For several years things are fine but eventually too much
money is printed and inflation ensues, followed by hyperinflation. The
currency goes bust and the cycle beings again.
the while pundits and authorities insist that this time it’s different.
It never is.
your physical gold and silver insurance policies while they are one sale now!
you know any mining companies whom are being advised by Mr.
Walker I suggest you kindly suggest they run, not walk.
stark contrast to Mr. Walkers
views the World Gold Council says demand for gold is on the rise as investors are using
it as a tool for capital preservation. Yes! Finally they are
major South African miner is looking to finally expand into a safer jurisdiction,
Canada. They’ve got a joint venture going now where they can
earn up to 60% interest in then gold deposit. The company sites the low-risk
political jurisdiction that is Canada as a major reason for the attempt at

South Africa and stated publicly my opposition to investment there until the

North Korea as their rocket launch attempt ended up sinking.
It wasn’t such a long-range rocket after-all! I guess it’s
suiting as the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic
hits this weekend.
end it there with this short free weekend letter and wish you a great restful
and healthy weekend before we get into the storm that could come in the
markets this week.
