JP Morgan, Goldman, Bank of America Turn Bullish On Precious Metals

What a difference one day and one person makes. Now that Mr. Bernanke announced not to slow down his asset purchases (which run at the rhythm of roughly 1 trillion US dollar per year) the bearish outlook of several major banks has turned bullish, at least in the short and mid-term.

Gold And Silver – Greater Certainty Is Found In Charts

Gold And Silver – Greater Certainty Is Found In Charts

We can assert the trend is down because of lower lows and lower highs. What can be seen, at this point, is a very small range, so far, following a small range in May that closed poorly. What we know for certain is that the downtrend has not yet changed, so lower prices can be expected. We may hold an opinion that gold will ultimately be considerably higher in value, but there is no confirmation that price has begun to rally.

Precious Metals – Historically The Regulator Protected Trading

Precious Metals – Historically The Regulator Protected Trading

Now the gold and silver futures markets are not being used for their original purpose, but are being used to manipulate prices by some entity that does not want to see prices of precious metals move higher. It is widely known that central banks and other major financial institutions have been manipulating Libor, bonds, equities as well as the foreign exchange market. So, it is absolutely plausible that they are manipulating precious metals, in particular gold and silver. What does this mean for investors?

Gold And Silver – Pushing On A String Amidst A Shaky Environment

Gold And Silver – Pushing On A String Amidst A Shaky Environment

The January monthly charts are now complete. Not sure that anything new can be learned, but it is always worth looking, never presuming anything. Remember, the point of reading developing market activity is to make factual observations of the information that the market is generating. From a buy-the-physical perspective, it remains a no-brainer. Keep on buying, at any level, at any price.

Cycle Counts – Gold

Cycle Counts – Gold

Now you know why I was “50-50” as per last weekend’s report; I was just never comfortable with that (Oct 24th – $1,698) Low holding up as an Investor Cycle Low.  There was just a lot of evidence out of my Cycle Analyzer that was telling me to be very cautious, that the retracement to date was just not deep enough.  So in reality what we have playing out here is essentially what I have been calling for since mid-October.  Some 5 weeks ago when the decline began, I pointed out that a move back below $1,680 would be a normal retracement and what to expect. We witnessed a trend-line break […]

Timing The Gold Bull

The question of when gold’s long awaited ascent will happen is not without precedence. A similar question is still being asked by the Jews concerning the appearance of the Messiah. Prediction has always been an inexact science. TIMING MARKETS AND TIMING GOLD In my book, Time of the Vulture, How to Survive the Crisis and Prosper in the Process, I quote market timer and industry insider, Rick Ackerman: …the stock market is a rigged game… It really is just a giant carny game, one in which there are only predator and prey, and precious few big winners. Wall Street’s best and brightest may have more teeth and fewer tattoos than […]

Big Jump in London Gold Trading

Big Jump in London Gold Trading

Gold trading in London – heart of the world’s wholesale bullion market – leapt in September. How come? “The continued economic uncertainty in the Eurozone and US, the end of the holiday period and the start of the Indian festival season boosted clearing turnover,” says trade body the London Bullion Market Association, releasing the new data to members on Thursday. But matched by a sharp rise in the size of gold-backed trust funds traded on the stock market (ETFs), these latest figures really suggest strong interest from hedge funds, investment banks and other institutions around the US Federal Reserve’s announcement of QE3, we believe. Why QE3 as the catalyst? Because […]

Tips On How To Time Gold Purchases with Technical Analysis

Technical Analysis is mathematical analysis of the market based on price action, but not the fundamentals of supply, demand, costs of production, and hundreds of other important factors (fundamental analysis). Many people will tell you Technical Analysis does not work. I disagree. If you understand its limits, it works quite well. Do I completely trust technical analysis? Certainly not! I want to know as much as I can about any market I trade, whether it is gold, wheat, an oil stock, or the S&P 500 index, and that includes as many fundamentals and as much relevant technical analysis as possible. How many times have you heard commentators examining the same data, and […]

How to ride the gold wave and minimize risk

Now that GLD has taken off like a rocket the last few days the question arises “how does one manage the risks?”. That being the risks of chasing a stock and sitting through a pullback right after one buys? Ever get caught up in the moment only to see shortly thereafter the stock pulls back after you are in? Isn’t it at those times you wished you had just remained calm, cool and collected to enable you to get a better fill? That’s called chasing a bus here at All About Trends and every day we hammer the point home — do NOT chase buses, but instead wait for stocks […]
