DEJA VU

The charts say it all. Ben is going to make the same mistake all over again.

  1. Those charts pretty well sum things up. Good job as usual.

  2. AMoldyHamsammich,

    You definitely lighten the mood. You and Shalom (Everything is Ok) Bernanke always crack me up :-)

    I actually did not have a problem with Hammy's calls. It was more his arrogant "I know what I am doing but do you?" attitude.

  3. 8.9 earthquake in Japan followed by a tsunami. Tsunami watch for Guam, Taiwan, and Hawaii. Just want to make people aware.

    ReplyDelete
  4. "The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center in Hawaii said a tsunami warning was in effect for Japan, Russia, Marcus Island and the Northern Marianas. A tsunami watch has been issued for Guam, Taiwan, the Philippines, Indonesia and the U.S. state of Hawaii."

  5. Hi - I'm in Japan - Tokyo - the earthquake was just north of here in Sendai. Mag 8.8, hit twice. Many dead - swept away by tsunami - Sendai airport inundated - cars and houses floating down rivers - a gas plant blew so am sure all workers there died in the blast or were burned alive - trains have all stopped so folks are stranded everywhere - phones all down - email and text msging are up though. My family are fine here - I have our money and passports packed w/clothes and water - there were 2 events - each lasting 5 mins or more - so it was very long - I flew out of our brick apt as I ain't gonna die here, not now - am afraid to sleep now - every little wiggle has me jumping out of my skin and ready to grab the bags and flee - we are very lucky as it could be worse - Tokyo is the epicenter of 4 tectonic plates, w/volcanic Mt. Fuji at the center. Anyways I misse the Kobe one by a few months, but this one was 180 times more powerful - I fear it's not over yet. In the end, alls one has is one's integrity and one's family. So far so good, and am so sorry for those who died or are still stuck away from home.

  6. finally a trend brake on silver

    ReplyDelete
  7. gold is holding on quite well

    ReplyDelete
  8. And to Paul's point about tsunami's and the tsunami warning in Hawaii, it's no joke as the one that wiped out Hilo came from Chile I think it was - they are very powerful and can travel very far. And it's the 2nd wave in the series that kills.

    Gary, nice charts. About Bernanke, maybe he's stupid, or maybe he's in the pockets of GS and so on, but living out here in Asia for 30 yrs, near to China and N. Korea, part of me thinks that something else is going on, like national security. I don't have anything to back that up with, just I have a hard time believing that so many ivy league execs are that stupid or that greedy. So I'm just saying I don't know why they're doing what they're doing, but you're right that the dollar will fall and commodities will rise. I did hear something about China and silver a few yrs back - maybe old news, maybe not.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Did you all know that gold was formed in a supernovae a few billion yrs ago? I think every element heavier than carbon came from supernovae explosions.

    Did you know that Timbuktu is an actual place, in Africa, where gold from the south was traded for salt from the north, oz for oz?

    These are last words in case I don't see the morning. Had to leave my mark on your blog, Gary!

    It's not death that we humans fear, it's the suffering just before.

  10. Rumors of HAARP weapon used to trigger Japan earthquake/tsunami ... silver getting shit stomped

  11. just looking at the footage.
    unbelievable.
    hang on there bill

    ReplyDelete
  12. If you believe in the long-term picture presented by Gary, then now is the time to be buying.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Yup, just bought 5000 oz silver spot.

    ReplyDelete
  14. almost all in at 34.43.
    lets hope Gary's crystal ball is working again

    ReplyDelete
  15. Guy,

    Congrats on your buy - looks like a good one.

    Didn't think Gary's crystal ball was broken in the first place :-)

  16. David K.

    Yes...the Euro is making lower low and dollar making higher high.

    But what makes you say its going to be a "disaster"?

    ReplyDelete
  17. david,

    i hope you were right with your pick on the high 33's yesterday.

    still feeling the same way?

    ReplyDelete
  18. RA,

    If the Euro shows weakness below 1.37 I think the odds are very high it will trade below 1.28. So that is my definition of disaster.

    Let´s hope it just keeps flirting.

    ReplyDelete
  19. David K,

    If the Euro blows up, then the dollar rises.

    Is that necesarily bad for PM's?

    Weakness in Euro could drive PM's too?

    ReplyDelete
  20. The dollar should be soaring right now, yet it's struggling to remain positive.

    I don't think it will be long before the dead cat bounce is over and the dollar breaks through the November low. A slightly lower low by gold would set up the swing low we are looking for.

    ReplyDelete
  21. RA,

    PMs could surely rise with the dollar. But I will not bet on it.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Euro debt problems, mid east crises and a massive Japan earthquake, have the dollar up a massive 0.07!

    ReplyDelete
  23. guy,

    It really depends on gold. The support area for silver, as I see it, is from 32.90 to 33.70. I don´t want to see gold breaking 1390.

    ReplyDelete
  24. gold is holding on very nice IMO

    ReplyDelete
  25. It's a waste of time to pick a number on the chart at this point. We just have to wait for the cycle low to form. The warning sign would come if gold bounces out of the cycle low then rolls over and moves below that pivot. That would form a pattern of lower lows and lower highs.

    But to just arbitrarily pick a number and say if gold falls below this it means the party is over is meaningless. The emotional metals market can easily break technical chart levels.

    The only number at this point that would carry that kind of significance is $1307.

    That was the last daily cycle low.

    Gold would have to drop below $1350 to even break the intermediate trend line.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Yep, my number is just a random number :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. Phew! I have taken on board all of Gary's advice and I have now managed to sell all of my precious metals. Just sold all my silver. Hopefully I will be able to buy it all back at the top of this C-wave thingy.

    ReplyDelete
  28. By the way, the number has significance in the current context. If gold were to rally 20-25 points from here, then breaking 1390 would not mean much.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Just 3 days ago most scoffed at TZ suggestion of up to a 10% hit in Silver. Well it's now 7% off the highs and counting.

    As gold hopefully going to swing, it's sharp down days like this that often bring about bottoms. A week of consolidation and 7% drop is the perfect setup.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Looks like more pain in the immediate future. I better eat a big breakfast, something like a farm fresh Hammy,Egg&Cheese on a toasted English muffin.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Longish, broad ranging interview last night with Jim Sinclair - 35 year gold industry veteran - which discusses the action yesterday (violent moves happen around round numbers), trading gold (if you must trade, there are areas/triggers for trading), long term price targets (1600+), QE (it can't stop), etc.

    Much of what he suggests pretty directly supports many of Gary's longer term views.

  32. Having trouble posting the URL- if interested, the interview is at King World News.

  33. Those charts are going to TICK the BEANIE off

    HHMMM, Been kind of quiet here this week from him and his solar and SOXX

    :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. I just made it to Pauls and BILS TSunami post , and turned on the news :(

    They are calling for possible tsunami on U.S. Pacific coast (California) etc and showed Japan.

    Sad enough as it is, and I would imagine even some of our guys on here could be affected (DG is California for ex)

    ReplyDelete
  35. Poly,

    I guess you will get a chance to buy your lottery ticket today. Those APR SLV $40 should be close to your target of $0.20 this morning.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I heard a nucleur power plant on fire in Japan.My prayers go out to them. The videos of the tsunami in northern Japan are just heartwrenching.

    ReplyDelete
  37. At this point I would not be surprised if gold breaks through 1400 and closes just above it.

    The miners should hold better this time.


    James

    ReplyDelete
  38. A word on inflation - I went to grocery store yesterday to buy 1 large fugi apple (not organic) and some water for lunch. Price of 1 apple $1.20 - I put it back and had water for lunch. Living in Northern CA is expensive, but this is ridiculous. Cheap gas is $3.87 -
    Don't get lulled by this correction is metals. The hard stuff seems to hold up better than the miners. Maybe Gary can speak to that.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Japan earthquake -> potential repatriation of Yen -> negative for $USD? Fits into the grand scheme of impending 3yr cycle low as predicted by Gary?

    ReplyDelete
  40. ddn3f,

    I was thinking the same thing, about 3 hours ago :) It's come back well since though.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Looking at the SLV MARch weeklies. The 34 seems like a falling off point for OI. I'd bet SLV will happen to close right under 34.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Bill,

    i lives in Japan for 3years on a day like today I feel for m'y friends there. Good luck

    ReplyDelete
  43. My exit plan-silver closes under the 20 MA for 2 days, I'm selling most positions.


    Silver's trendline now broken, 10 has been violated, 20 rising up around 33.44 on /SI. I think that 20 MA must hold or else this C wave stuff is not correct.

    DOC has an alternative scenario on the dollar, which could be the reason why things may not take off for a bit longer.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Five red daily candles on SLV ties the most we had over the past year, including the flash crash period.

    ReplyDelete
  45. silver and miners getting creamed again...this is not looking like a daily cycle correction anymore

    ReplyDelete
  46. Gold 1400 has fought off so many assaults, I wonder if it will give in...If silver cracks 34, Ill add, otherwise, sitting tight.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Considering the developments, USD has been pathetic.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I'm hanging on but it sure would have been nice to get off about three days ago and then get back on today. Of course hind sight is 20/20

    ReplyDelete
  49. On the contrary things are looking exactly like a daily cycle correction and people are now starting to make emotional decisions like selling into the bottom of a cycle correction instead of buying.

    Silver will be down two days. Two days and everyone is starting to think it's the end of the world.

    Folks silver could go all the way back to $31 and all it would be is a test of the break out. Once the cycle bottom is in all losses could and probably would be recovered in 2-3 days.

    Folks stay focused on the big picture here.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Despite everything that's going on in the world the dollar can't even stay positive. That alone should tell you something.

    ReplyDelete
  51. SIL made pin pointed 50% retracement of 20.74 to 29.34

    ReplyDelete
  52. FWIW. The gap down volume on the 15min charts (GLD, SLV, AGQ, GPL, SLW, GDX, etc) is much lower than yesterday's.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Well maybe we hit bottom for now.

    ReplyDelete
  54. If we close down today I have a decent chance at a system buy! I won;t know how likely until later in the day but will post. Nice to get these a little more frequently. Stocks/gold bottom together?

    Nice to see GDX positive already.

    ReplyDelete
  55. The big picture is that even after this downturn I am still up more in 30 days than the previous 365.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Gary, thanks for the reminder on keeping big picture in mind.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Think its good that Gary try to get the troops together because I see some panic here..I dont know why actually..A lot of people warned us that a cycle low correction will soon strike against us..

    Gary, Poly and TZ warned us a week ago..This is why so few people will can add when the price go down..Panic..Some people will sell..

    A think we are close to the bottom now in silver and gold..Bernanke is pissing his pants and will do anythink to prop the market up.

    The dollar will soon fall back again..No reason to try and change the fundamental here..

    Think 34,05 was the bottom in silver..Will soon be the swing we are looking for..

    Actually I think the dollar will move down and under 77 today..

    Take Care!

    ReplyDelete
  58. Thanks for weighing in Gary. Yes I agree with the thesis. And am working the plan. Just tough to weather the downdrafts.

    The saying "Bulls climb the stairs and Bears jump out the window" is appropriate here.

    ReplyDelete
  59. I'm not selling here Gary, I attempted to grab some SLW calls there at the open and that sucker ran away so hard I missed it.

    I'm looking to top off, the 20 MA violation for 2 plus days would concern me and I would consider scaling back then. I don't think that would happen. (Violation==daily close under followed by the next day taking out the prior days low)

    ReplyDelete
  60. I know lines on charts get broken all the time, but... DX backtested broken the 11/10 & 2/11 support trendline yesterday and today. Still below. GC backtested 12/10 & 1/11 broken resistance trendline yesterday. Looking for possible kiss goodbye on both.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Thank you Gary! Picked up some more
    sil, svm

    ReplyDelete
  62. I also missed the oppty to add on a few names, they moved higher immediately. Sitting with what I have for now.

    ReplyDelete
  63. Jumped in with the rest of the dry powder. Bought some exk may calls at 10. Good luck everyone

    ReplyDelete
  64. Wow!


    If only I knew how deep a correction....

    ReplyDelete
  65. Shalom!

    Actually I dont like the move in gold or silver but if we want to see higher price we must be cool..

    Gary told us so many times that this will be hard..Everyone will not be on the boat the whole trip..

    Now I understand why..:-)

    The dollar is dooomed..We are all doomed..

    /Faber

    ReplyDelete
  66. If the miners continue to show relative strength today, it validates the idea this is just another typical pullback with each vehicle taking it's turn correcting.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Bill,

    Thanks for posting. Glad you and your family are okay, but so sorry for those who didn't make it.

    Are you planning to leave the country any time soon? Good luck to you!

    It's strange and ironic that the "Pacific Ring of Fire" has several areas of high density populations. California and Japan come to mind, but there's also the Philippines and Indonesia. The whole area is a time bomb that will go off again and again...

    ReplyDelete
  68. Bought 100 April $38's calls @ $0.44. Lottery play.

    ReplyDelete
  69. Nice pickup this morning, traderlady!

    I think you got my stock, so if you'll kindly just journal it over to my accounts and I'll remit funds immediately. :)

  70. Pima

    The pic you got is really funny..Lol!

    ReplyDelete
  71. Yeah but the pic you got Shalom must be from 2006 or something?

    Before this mess!? He looks happy.....

    Lol

    ReplyDelete
  72. Yeah, nobody was asking questions back then. :)

  73. SLW fans.

    34 EMA has been fairly solid support.

    SLW 34

    ReplyDelete
  74. Dollar putting in its swing high?

    ReplyDelete
  75. I managed to snag some HZU at the low of day ... that's my fill at 29.51 ... unfortunately it was only a partial fill I had to buy the rest at market :)

    ReplyDelete
  76. The dollar can't form a swing today. But it did make a slightly higher high this morning. If it ends the day lower it will be set up to form the swing on Monday with any weakness at all.

    ReplyDelete
  77. I'm surprised to find my accounts barely in the red today considering how silver is acting. Still, I had some pretty hairy negative marks this morning (daily).

    But the bigger picture is even at the worst levels on the open, I was still up roughly 30% on this round over the last couple months.

    ReplyDelete
  78. My expectation was for the dollar rally to last 3-5 days. Today is day 4.

    ReplyDelete
  79. Prayers to all of those in the path of misfortune.

    Guess the Yen gets the boost out of this becasue they will have so much rebuilding.

    ReplyDelete
  80. Thank you Gary,


    I did not know the dollar made a higher high.

    ReplyDelete
  81. Everything really is OK, I'm actually up on the day without even getting to add this morning. :)

    ReplyDelete
  82. Just a hunch, but I think we made bottom this morning.

    ReplyDelete
  83. Nice to see spot gold climbing the wall of worry.

    ReplyDelete
  84. Nice price action in the Euro from the lows.

    ReplyDelete
  85. We have to pity anybody that got suckered into selling on the open this morning.

    ReplyDelete
  86. One thing the dollar does have going for it is that large specs are long at near record levels in the ausse, loonie, and euro vs the dollar at least for the past couple of years. This usually leads to a severe correction to wash these specs out. The last time spec longs were this long the euro, the euro dropped 14 cents over the next few months.

    ReplyDelete
  87. Partial fill on buying some AGQ this morning.

    ReplyDelete
  88. Imagine doing this sh!t alone


    : O

    ReplyDelete
  89. I got good dips in GPL, SLW, SVM this morning, but had to be quick. Trying to add to my SLW calls ran away from me too fast.

    ReplyDelete
  90. End of day we will see nice big large green candle sticks

    ReplyDelete
  91. The lows of the day (so far) hit the following retracement percentages (of move up from late Jan low):

    GDX - 62
    GDXJ - 62
    SIL - 50
    SLW - about 45
    SVM - close to 50

    ReplyDelete
  92. SB,

    I hope you bought some SVM this morning. The low was 12.50!

    ReplyDelete
  93. Ploy,

    I like your hunch. I felt the same thing (but was too superstitious to say anything about it... oops! )

    ReplyDelete
  94. pima,

    I know, but unfortunately I missed it. I was on the phone trying to wrap things up before the open but it went 2-3 minutes over. Too late!

    I'm still scoping to add though, so thanks for those fib levels. they seem as good a place as any, so will buy weakness if we get it, or pay these prices if things meander at these levels into next week.

    ReplyDelete
  95. Interesting day in the markets. Would love to watch it, but my wife's water just broke and we are getting ready for a baby to come out!

    Have a great weekend all!

    By him/her some silver/gold coins.
    By the time their ready for college 1 gold coin outta do it :)

  106. In those iffy moments, I go back and read Gary's postings and know that all is as planned.

  111. To the April call buyers, isn't that timeframe a little too tight?

    ReplyDelete
  112. AGQ on the verge of closing the gap.


    Nice to see the miners responded well.

    ReplyDelete
  113. Dollar dropping like a sack of Sh1t!

    ReplyDelete
  114. Gary: Thanks. Without your confidence and analysis I'd have cut back some this morning had I been on my own. As a result of your work I didn't sell a share. I am relatively full up at this point so did not add but may add a little on the swing low being set. about 1/2 my net worth in silver is enough for right now, but as I get more room I may push it farther.

    ReplyDelete
  115. >We have to pity anybody that got suckered into selling on the open this morning

    Screw 'em. It they want dollars that bad they can have them. Here you go.. thanks for the silver!

    ReplyDelete
  116. Dollar just now bounced off a rising trendline.

    ReplyDelete
  117. DG,
    Thanks for the book. I'm going get into it this weekend.

    ReplyDelete
  118. Yesterday I wasn't sure about buying, today I'm feeling much more positive.

    Sold a lot on Monday, went back to 100% allocation about an hour ago.

    The USD is dropping, the PM complex is looking strong, fingers crossed for everyone!

    ReplyDelete
  119. Only 6 weeks into an intermediate cycle and 28 days into a daily cycle are is not the time to be selling. It's the time to be buying hand over fist.

    These C-wave finales don't come around very often. The last one was 3 years ago.

    One can't let this kind of opportunity pass them by because it may be another three years before the next one.

    Folks, do what ever you have to do to shut down your emotions so you can stay focused on the big picture.

    ReplyDelete
  120. Poly ,
    is today a "deal" to you?

    ReplyDelete
  121. Mr m

    Maybe they want them to expire and just paying for the insurance

    ReplyDelete
  122. at noon, in europe, i was pushing the BUY button while pissing my pants.

    and thx to Gary it was a great feeling.

    ReplyDelete
  123. oa9200,

    I'm really just recycling Gary's info, to fit my style. :) So yes, for me its a deal and I think smart money is buying, not panicking. I've done all the buying I can safely handle.

    Gary's post right above this is just perfect. He has been been so spot on down to the daily wiggles, it's not even funny!

    ReplyDelete
  124. Congrats to those who stepped in at the open today. Nice trading.

    ReplyDelete
  125. Close em now! If we close now I get a buy. Those of you who have been around a while know how good they have been. I will buy $300k or so worth of SPY's if we get it. I am running out of cash with all this silver clogging up my account (j/k---happy to have it). Look for a post at 3:50 if the Dow is down modestly. An up day or big down day aborts it.

    ReplyDelete
  126. Thanks to Gary pissing your pants was a great feeling?
    okie dokie

    ReplyDelete
  127. Well good news is that I slept through the horrible open but bad news is I still wanted to add to my AGQ/HZU. Shall I wait or just throw the rest of my dry powder in now?

    ReplyDelete
  128. Gary,

    Do you think the reversal in silver and many of the miners is a sign that perhaps we hit the daily cycle low this morning?

    ReplyDelete
  129. Gary,

    "DG,
    Thanks for the book. I'm going get into it this weekend."

    What's the name of the book, if I'm not being too nosey?

    Nothing crazy but will see how they do.

  131. ryan,

    if you missed it i think you'd better wait for gary to call the swing IMO

    i have a bit left for that occasion too

    ReplyDelete
  132. Steven,
    I have no idea. But I do know that gold is now 29 days into it's daily cycle (possibly day 1 if yesterday was the bottom). I know it tagged the 20 DMA yesterday. That combination is enough to go ahead and swing the bat even if it doesn't turn out to be the exact bottom.

    ReplyDelete
  133. Bede,
    "Freedom From Stress"

    Not that I have much any more. Most of my stress is limited to how far the fall is going to be if I "come off" rock climbing.

    I'm not sure that's the kind of stress that kills though... well unless one hits the ground at terminal velocity :)

    ReplyDelete
  134. Gary,

    If today turns out to be the bottom I'm changing my religion to whichever one has you as god!

    Oh, and as many burritos you can eat. I'm actually an investor in a burrito company so I'll send you some when the C wave is over and you have a big appetite!

    ReplyDelete
  135. SB said: "If the miners continue to show relative strength today, it validates the idea this is just another typical pullback with each vehicle taking it's turn correcting."

    That's my take, too.

    We could have got 'em a little cheaper today, but you had to be quick!

    The decline in SLW halted on the quick retest of the puke-out lows from Thursday 2/24.

  136. Gary,

    Was that response about swinging the bat for me? Or should I wait for you to call the swing as Guy suggests?

  138. Ryan,
    You can wait or swing, it's up to you.

    It's late enough in the daily cycle that if that wasn't the low it's very close time wise. What are the odds you will catch the exact bottom even if it's still ahead of us?

    Virtually zero.

    For me a touch of the 20 DMA yesterday represented value so I bought and I didn't worry if it was the exact bottom. It was close enough.

    Decide if you more worried about catching the exact bottom or can you be satisfied with close enough?

  139. Hammy better decide when he's gonna get back in. The G-train is leaving the station! :)

    my feet were dangling this morning but i held on strong! >:O

  143. "The G-train is leaving the station!"

    I would say she already left!


    Hammy the hero tried to trade around the swing and will now chase to rebuild his 44x leveraged position.

    This is very much cycle bottom explosion behavior, IMO.

  144. Thanks Gary, I should of just pressed the button when you said swing the bat because look at it leave the station now lol. Well, at least I'm glad I added with you yesterday.

  146. Bede: Re my book: I have been keeping my professional life (author/public speaker) off the blog. Not sure why to tell you the truth, but am---for now---more comfortable that way so sorry, the book will need to stay a secret. It deals with how to master your thoughts and emotions (very useful for a trader!) and I sent it to Gary as a "thank you." I train Special Forces troops, NASA test pilots, SF Police Academy, Navy, corporate executives, etc.

  148. watching silver, after this mornings buy, feels like having good s*x. and that fot only 200$ a year, quite a bargain.

  149. I picked up Leal Life by Dr. Phil McGraw for $2 at Odd Lots. Preparing for the 7 Most Challenging Days of Your Life. Anyone read any of DPs books? Let's see?

    The most challenging 3 months of my life may have been when the unexpected USD rally stretched this gold c-wave grand finally. What caused it again? Euro nation soverign debt? Lag in production dlayed oil price increases?

    I with SB, I want to know too! You're not the one that's training them to explode goats with a stare are you?!

  155. SB: To master the instinctive reactive process. When the lymbic system part of your brain kicks in you do stupid things (like sell in a panic or curse out your mother-in-law). While an automatic response we can train ourselves to overcome the normal flood of chemicals. That's what martial artists train to do. You slap one in the face and their neural response is actually calm---not passive, just not out of control. If they decide to take you out you are dead, but it is a conscious choice not a "I can;t stand it" kind of response. This is a learnable skill and we have trained over 20,000 people the past 15 years.

  159. Aaron & Fubsy cooter,

    Great posts from yesterday, in the heat of it. Way to stay cool and calm, along with Gary.

    Fubsy,

    Enough of a bottom for you to "top off"?

  160. Beanie,
    Just this once. I was actually telling the bears to wait last summer because I wasn't convinced the bull was finished.

  161. NASA has test pilots? Guess they used to land the shuttle.

    Military training Terrorizes you. Gets you ready to think on your feet, etc. Retire?

    One of my instructors had a million stories, about all he was good for. When he was fireman, they ran through burning magnesium. They had to have fire hoses spraying on them to keep from incinerating.

    What would really scare me is climbing a 60 fool ladder.

    ReplyDelete
  162. Before you get too excited Beano, take a look at the charts. First day up on SOX, and it can only manage .5% while everybody else is scoring left and right with metals.

    Seriously, peeking in on the first measely day up after a thorough beating doesn't bolster your case, IMO.

    ReplyDelete
  163. At this point I would say the odds are very high gold's daily cycle has bottomed.

    We should see a weak bounce in stocks over the next few days as commodities start to spike. But it won't be long before surging inflation causes the stock market to roll over and make another lower low.

    ReplyDelete
  164. beanie,
    You are confusing expectations of intermediate tops with a final bull market top. back in Jan I was just expecting an intermediate top.

    Now I'm saying there's a good chance the cyclical bull has topped. It seems pretty clear the intermediate cycle has topped. Now we just have to see if the decline breaks below the November low.

    If that happens the odds skyrocket that the cyclical bull is finished.

    ReplyDelete
  165. My apologies... I must've been responding to ghost writings all this time.

    I therefore must get my eyes checked by the fabulous Optometrist.

    See ya next week....as the equities market make the bears scream some more.

    ReplyDelete
  166. Beanie,

    Nobody is perfect, but I recall Gary picking big runs in equities, especially the low out of the Summer to new cyclical bull market high's.

    But this isn't about the specific calls, your history of trolling these types of sights and going against the grain is legendary. In fact going as far back as 2007/08 you've been hitting the site, guess you're Gary's oldest fan :)

    ReplyDelete
  167. Beanie,
    If you would take the time to learn cycles analysis you wouldn't get caught in bear markets.

    You would know the seriousness of breaking below the Feb. 24th low.

    Maybe you should take the blinders off so you can keep your profits this time.

    ReplyDelete
  168. Guys, Beenie is right. I'm on his team, forget this ridiculous fear trade. The global economy is poised for an explosion of growth. We will see DOW 20K within 3 months. Tech stocks will be bought by homeless people and your great grandmothers. Doom and gloomers will be trying to sell their worthless silver to any and all takers under 5 bucks a share.

  172. DG,

    Are you familiar with the work of Ari Kiev? His book Masterring Trading Stress was an excellent read for me. Do you train traders as well?

  173. DG, I'm fascinated myself and want to know more:)!

  174. DG, Im interested. Is there a way to order your book on the kindle/amazon?

  175. Winnie, Beanie, and Cecil?

    To save you the cost and agony of a black belt, I just meditate. Instead of blowing up at my in-laws, I pretend I am putting a run to their head and pulling the trigger; then of cource, there are consequences. Not worth it.

  176. Waht are all the triggers/signs we're waiting for here?

  177. Poly clown - stop bashing Hammy - as Hammies NAV is at new all time highs - despite gold and silver and crude still ways of their highs.

    Up over 743% as of now since October 2010, when I started recording my NAV.
    Besides being in physical since almost a decade. Still own phyisical silver I bought below $7.

    So do you think i care a second about your (or others) continued hatred here?

    BTW i report my NAV almost each day in my blog - do you - or the other bashers here???

    Call me gloating ... call me this, call me that ... i report facts, I report sometimes when i exit, or when i reenter ... do you think I care what you think about me?

    Trading is not about bashing other poeple - but about trading and learning from those who have a proven record in being profitable.
    Either shortterm or mediumterm or longterm.

    Trading is about making money - and having ones eyes on the charts.
    Those which have time to bash others - are usually worthless crap just filling space.

    BTW I like what Gary offers in his protected area - but the hatred presented in this blog - is beyond what I have seen before.
    Just the Yahoo boards are worse.
    And calling Kitco a site with penny dealers just confirms that thsi site is just about bashing and a few glory insiders.

    Same as was with gold-eagle.
    That board is dead as of now.
    Due to the folks posting here - intolerant like here.

    Nuf said - of again.

  178. Mr. M, basically silver still below $40 to make it simple.

  181. Veronica:

    Is there any way you can change your name back to vuvvy? I keep picturing you sitting there infront of your computer in drag. NTTAWWT... And now that everyone is using pics of Bernanke the image in my mind has morphed into one of Ben in drag.
