D-WAVE ABORTED

In my last post I hypothesized that the bear market in stocks had finally sunk its teeth into the precious metals sector. I was looking for a final move down into a true D-wave bottom, coupled with the HUI dropping down to test the 200 week moving average. I could not have been more wrong!

Instead gold formed a double bottom at $1600 and yesterday confirmed a trend change to a pattern of higher highs and higher lows.



As is usually the case the miners played follow the leader and reversed their downtrend also.


It is now clear that gold put in an intermediate degree bottom on September 26. The double bottom is a much stronger basing pattern then a V-shaped rebound and should launch a test of the $2000 level at some point during this intermediate cycle.

  1. Gary,

    You have a great ability to change your mind when facts change. Best thing about you and your service.

    Thanks,

  2. Gary,
    Admission that you were wrong is a great strength. Kudos.
    Sounds like you picked the break though and saved face for subscribers.
    I think the COT was a big telling factor on where Gold was headed. So too is the soon to be combined efforts of the FED and ECB.
    Have been watching and holding steady.
    All fiats are in trouble.
    Q : Do we see the retracement to 1900-2000 level as the final c-wave move and then a consolidation for most of 2012 (at say 1700-1800), before the exponential move? Or a much deeper d-wave to take it down to 1450 after this cycle/wave is complete. Seems the 1600 level was well supported ...it has bounced off that level on several occasions.
    Could very well have been the last opportunity to buy gold cheap.
    To me this is not going to be a short term play...comms and mms will be restricted in their shorts ..worth keep an eye on the lcns for both au and ag.
    I have this feeling that the material nature of the future cash printing of EUR/USA/CHINA will create a mania in PM's.
    Great reading your perspectives and balancing it up with my own views. Staying the course.

  3. Question for all: is there a way for me to trade on Gary's portfolio on the Australian stock exchange? I'm thinking of the ETF's, gold stocks, etc. Are there enough equivalents on the Aussie market for me to do the trading there, or would I need to, pretty much, for the North American time zone?

    ReplyDelete
  4. Gary, I echo others in saying it's great to change course when facts change.

    I'm still troubled on cycles though - I don't see how they are reliable. Take this change - did cycles support the old scenario? I assume they did. If so, how does one reconcile price action with cycles if they aren't complimentary? Price trumps cycles? If so, why use cycles at all, and focus only on price, I wonder?

    Thanks.

  5. The Green Family,
    I have a brokerage account in Australia and I will tell you one thing. The possibilities on trading are much more limited than on US markets. For example, there is no such thing as a bear market ETF, to my knowledge. If i want to bet that gold or the ASX 200 is going to go down, I can't do it on the ASX. Would have to use options or sell short. But they do have a fairly healthy number of long ETFs. You can find them on the ASX website. On gold miners, of course, the underlying stocks will be those trading on the ASX rather than in No. America, though (I think).

    ReplyDelete
  6. The Green Family - have you tried using Interactive Brokers? I am in the US, but broker allows us to trade in any stock market. You have to specify the markets you want to trade in during the application process.

  7. i am long gold in general, but i favor that this one will be a fakeout. If it gets significantly above the 50 day I might start scaling in.

  8. Bill,
    Actually cycles are what allowed me to spot the bottom. The fact that gold was nearing the timing band for a cycle low and formed a swing low at 1600 instead of accelerating to the downside was a big clue that gold was going to form a double bottom instead of continuing down.

    Cycles are an excellent tool for telling one when to step on the gas and when to coast, but they aren't a perfect timing tool, especially for spotting tops.

    One just has to know the limitations of their tools and use them for what they are good for. In the case of cycles they're mostly good for spotting bottoms.

    any similarities between this action and the double bottom in august and september of 2008. during that one we had a few rocket days up and then it consolidated for month and rolled back over. how did the cycles line up during that one

  10. Mike,
    We have all the odds stacked in our favor in the precious metals markets right now. Instead of trying to find reasons to doubt the move, you should be finding reasons to trust it.

  14. Mike,
    Stocks appear to be in the initial stages of a bear market but still have a long way to go before the next four year cycle low. Whether or not the dollar rally resumes will probably determine how the future plays out.

    Gold however looks nothing like 2008.

    are you just giving an opinion about shorting the metals or do you actually have an open short position?

  27. RJ, gold closed the daily gap today, trading down to the 170x range.

    This pattern is one of 2 things, a bull trap with the price waiving new recovery highs just a moment ago, and letting all come running before the floor falls out, or equally probably the mezzanine of the first move of a series of three, with the next being nearly equal to the last, and the one after being the blow off high.

    So, a number like 1800 is an easy call as level 2, and then one more step up, possibly in an hourly parabola to the 2000 range. At that last leg of the parabola, or in this case, stepped pyramid, gold will blow off.

    I who am cautious in my public predictions just went long, even at this higher high as I sense this market has not exploded up, yet, and the 2nd will beget the 3rd.

  30. As we celebrate the "solution" to the Euro debt crisis, stocks will become seriously overbought (again) tomorrow according to the Mclellan oscillator. It worked off some of the condition on Tuesday and this morning only to shoot for the moon again this afternoon. Continue to look for some kind-of reversion to the mean (0) - of course, for those short, the market can remain irrational longer than you can remain solvent, but it seems we might be reaching a significant top in stocks very soon (longer than a 1 day selloff at least).

    ReplyDelete
  31. We may get an ideal entry point for a starter short position if stocks gap up on the open, which could play out as a "sell the news" reversal to put a bow around all the other signals we're seeing (half-cycle timing, bullish sentiment, and selling on strength).

    ReplyDelete
  32. Of course, as always, the key is controlling position size and risk in case the dollar falls apart and stocks keep running.

  35. I'm hoping that spot gold backtests the breakout of (roughly) $1700, so I can buy.

    Though the situation in Europe sounds good today, no way can debt there nor in the US can disappear so easily. When folks are in debt, they stop buying. So I'm staying away from the S&P for now. I think Gary's bear market scenario will play out.

    So instead of wasting my time on the S&P, there's better hunting in gold, me thinks.

  36. Bill,

    I have the same view...European banks stocks will get a boost from here, but that's about it

  39. Sophia, when you guy gold, do you use the ETF's like GLD, IAU, etc? Or do you focus on ETF's that have physical, like CEF, GTU, or PHYS?

    And if you don't mind, are you looking at miners via GDX? That fall for AEM really shook me, so for now I'll stick with pure gold. RGLD looks good ... still researching the company though.

    Thank you.

    I have initiated a short position via a leveraged short ETF. I will be adding to that short position as certain criteria are met, namely the DX dollar index is above 77.55

    ReplyDelete
  44. I think that as long as spot gold stays above $1700 it's a buy, as it'd be a pullback. Gary's charts show it all quite perfectly.

    If price closes below $1700 I'd sell, as I don't have the kahuna's to hold down to $1600.

    A reminder that COT looks good for GL too - OE at multi-year lows.

  46. Danno, in my short 6 yrs as a trader, I've noticed that gold and the $USD aren't always in sync. So I myself no longer look at the $USD to determine what gold will do. I watch gold to trade gold. For what it's worth. ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  47. Sophia,

    I guess your going to have to wait a bit longer to buy the Dax cheaper :)

    ReplyDelete
  48. Bill,
    I know what you mean. The dollar and gold can move out of sync for periods. But eventually, they can regain their inverse relationship. This re-syncing usually happens at the worst possible moment for those who gave up on the whole idea. (Speaking from experience.)

    ReplyDelete
  49. Danno, definitely could be. I'm seeing the same as you in the $USD, and I was hoping for a C wave down in $GOLD, complimenting that. But the breakout in $GOLD turned me around. Gary's cycle magic confirms. Have to wait and see!

    ReplyDelete
  50. Yep. A lot of wait and see here. A bit early to tell either way IMO. Good luck!

  55. Looks like my fat red engulfing candle theory in UUP resulted in an accurate sell signal.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Silver's rise shows alternating shifts in market interest. Danno, this ain't sluggish. It's marking time, inviting shorts to propel gold higher. It's so easy to short now as after all it's not performing.

    This is a moment of no clarity, but from what the markets are showing especially oil, the game of fiat is showing massive degradation. The bailout won't work, again. So, what's left? I deal in polyester as a customer and am at a trade show. I'll alert vendors to stock up now. Hyperinflation has finally been dealt a full house.

    ReplyDelete
  57. exited gold position just now around 1730. hope to buy it lower. i don't know. i think this rally is real but it's got a lot of clock to run off before it makes sense.

    stocks, if they're ever going to go down again, have to start turning down nowish. extreme buy divergence today, e.g. between close yesterday and now there are almost no new buyers.

    same dollar. buy divergence.. but there's been buy divergence for a freakin' week straight now.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Slumdog,
    I did not say PMs were sluggish yet.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Bill,

    Gold looks good, the last few nights it's been sold those dips are being bought. Everyone knows I was always bearish under the 10sma daily and bullish over the 75sma. The only over head resistance is the 50sma now, unless this move is not for real gold should rip through, may give a bit of a headache like the 75 did, but it shouldn't reverse gold significantly like the 75 did if this move is real.

    ReplyDelete
  64. I realize that "solving the european debt crisis" is a big headline however its difficult to reconcile with the huge SOS numbers yesterday, Monday and several days last week. Will be interesting to see if, or how long, this opening gap up lasts.

    ReplyDelete
  65. Danno,
    If you are constantly distracted by the daily wiggles you will never be able to ride the bull. I suggest you switch to the weekly charts so you can see what's really going on.

    ReplyDelete
  66. You guys are paying too much attention to gold while silver has been getting its groove back. It is starting to look more like it was early in the year.

  68. Gary,
    I admit I screwed up buying AGQ at the top when you warned me not to. Since then I have been working very hard and doing quite well.

    I believe the dollar is going to bottom soon.

    UUP is not $USD of course, but UUP just closed all of its gaps. Just sold UUP puts for a 41% gain (in 2 days).

    ReplyDelete
  69. raz is correct imo, its time to start re balancing some gold into silver, currently at 55/1 its too stretched. history suggests this kind of wide margin wont last, its time for silver to start playing catch up

    ReplyDelete
  70. SB,

    I took some of the SPXU off yesterday at the 78.6% fib level (which turned out to be the lows), small loss there...I had a feeling that would be strong support and wanted to lighten up a bit. Holding the rest, see what happens now that we tagged the 200sma. Im up over 80% since the august low, so giving back 10% wont kill me.

    ReplyDelete
  71. SPX slightly penetrated the 50 week moving average today, past bear market rallies have been stopped here...see what happens.

    I had bought up some GDXJ in some of my family's accounts, It's not moving as well as lets say GDX, etc is there a reason for that? Should I sell one position for the other or should I not worry about that?

    ReplyDelete
  86. Haggerty,

    I'd sit tight. On any given day GDXJ can outperform GDX, say after a junior is bought out by a major.

    Rather than get concerned which is the best train, focus on staying on the bull. The next test of your fortitude is right around the corner (always is), and more important than which etf will be to resist the urge to sidestep a pullback. That is where the results will come from, your conviction.

  92. not contesting your good calls and success... but that missing that ingredient can make you much much better at calling tops and bottoms even ahead of time ... example ... the markets were drawing picture perfect charts just like before 2008 crash... for me that believes in market manipulation that was a clear TRAP, while everyone is screaming 2008 all over again, it was clear to me there will be no crash ... i don't blame market, manipulation for my mistakes, i always blame myself for not seeing it right ... but the markets ARE manipulated ... and I'm up few hundred percent in PMs since 2002/2003

  105. Hey Everyone!

    I have been lurking for a while now and trying to get a grip on this market (yeah right!).

    I currently just trade my 401k account and am in cash now (money market), but move in and out as I spot danger or opportunity. I use Vanguard SP500 index mostly.

    I wanted to see if I could get some thoughts about jumping back into the market right now. The dollar just moved down below the 200dma and the SnP has broken some key resistance heading up. I understand the danger to the downside, but do not want to miss any major upside if possible.

    My spidey senses tell me to get back in, but that is usually the first red flag for me :)

    Any thoughts will be appreciated!

    ReplyDelete
  106. damn shouldn't have sold my gold already, left about $20 on the table.

    With today's action in stocks across the globe, do you still think 2012 will be one of the worst year's in human history?

    Retail (RTH) broke the all time highs earlier in the year and now attempting another push to all time highs again. The data/action hasn't confirmed any of the doomsday scenario yet. In a matter of fact, this recovery might pick up steam in 2012.

    Haven't seen you around for a bit but if you rad this, I finished The Grapes Of Wrath and I have concluded that it sucks to be poor and Steinbeck was a perv.

  125. >"Retail (RTH) broke the all time highs earlier in the year and now attempting another push to all time highs again. The data/action hasn't confirmed any of the doomsday scenario yet. In a matter of fact, this recovery might pick up steam in 2012."

    Do you equate inflation influenced stock prices with 'recovery'? Do you see things as being better than in 2009 for the average citizen if prices just keep increasing?

  126. Dang,

    Big money aren't made when the danger (Greece & ECB) has cleared the horizon. Big money is usually lost this way.
    With risk come big reward. The trade was to buy into the fear 1-2 month ago and sell today (Big SPY SOS number).

  127. Movax2,

    Just like the gold bugs, you think there is some conspiracy going on in the retails sector? Have you seen the retail sales figure? What about earnings from all the major retailers?

  128. Inflation? What inflation?
    Housing which is one of the biggest cost is still trending down.

  129. It's time to throw my Pennant-with-a-pullback theory out the window. Price has moved too high.

    Just heard back from the MAN who wrote the book 'Encyclopedia of Chart Patterns' [$74.84 on Amazon 1,032 pages]

    Quote:
    "This looks to me like a new trend. The price has moved above the top of the congestion region and it seems to be heading higher."

  131. So is the dollar officially dead yet?

  132. No complaints today, think of the days when the trades were against most of us,especially last May. Coached basketball for many years, Gary is an excellent coach and days like these are why we play this game.
    Enjoy this, the plan is coming together.

  134. Panic selling in the dollar, panic buying in stocks and PMs. Sounds like a recipe for a washout of weak hands over the next few days. Take advantage of the dips.

  135. Eric, if in 1999, you thought 2000 would be a terrible year in tech, as I did, then you'd have looked like an idiot for quite a few months, like I did (over 9 months). By March of '00, I had missed the final 25% of the blowoff top. A year later, I was sitting over 100% higher than my friends.

    The big question to me is the next few months -- further rally before reality sets in? If so, I want to be in for a while, but I want to be out early for the 4-yr low to materialize. Just not absurdly early. And if a hyperinflationary scenario develops, I want to be all in, as cash will be worse.

    ReplyDelete
  136. I haven't looked into sales figures, but sales increasing is the wanted effect of inflationary policies. Unfortunately, this is often driven more from fear of holding cash than desire for goods. BTW I wasn't being rhetorical, I do wonder what your answers are - do you really see a big improvement in the average American's life over the past few years? You think a retail stat means good times ahead? Just curious.

    ReplyDelete
  137. Thank you EricH (and others).

    I know I missed the jump, but would like to catch a trend for a short time period if possible and not have my head cut off in the guillotine.

    To me, it looks like I could catch a wave up for a short time. But I don't always see around the corners too well and have been spanked on more than one occasion.

    I am a bit confuse on how to interpret the SoS & BoW (from the WSJ). If a stock is on the top of the SoS list, can we expect a drop in that stock in the next day or so?

    Thank you very much!

    As Gary has noted before, SOS is mainly applicable to SPY ETF. It doesn't mean that the price will drop but it may. It just means that there are less people buying at higher prices than lower prices intraday.

  140. Took off the SPXU at a break of the head and shoulders neckline. 10% loss on the market short. Never ever ever short a bull market...lol

    Now that the dollar is below the 200 dma, would you say that the dollar will break this year's low?

  143. there was one (1) huge sell in SPY that i think is probably accounting for the entire SoS number. it was around 12:22 this afternoon.

    either it was a hell of a test for demand (PASS!) or some sort of statement since people managing that type of dough usually sneak in and out.

    There are some other passages in TGOW and Of Mice and Men and even Cannery Row that lead me to that conclusion, it was after all the 1930's.

  146. What's conversation like on the premium site? Doesn't seem like too much effort being expended here. Don't know about you, but I want to make some stinking money. I will even take $100 bills that rode a thousands miles strapped to a camel's groin.

    You can't a house, but you can certainly eat more with less money used for housing. You think the retail numbers over the past 2 years are fudged?

  149. W2,
    you get the feeling this thing is going to take a break, say tomorrow, catch it`s breath for the weekend, and push higher next week? It would make a lot of sense to fill todays gap tomorrow. Ain`t gonna happen though, is it? Mr M, what do you think?

    ReplyDelete
  150. Haven't seen > 400 on SPY in a long time. WOW

    Someone call 911 for the $USD

  151. 86d4life,
    While I don't KNOW what will happen, I would not be surprised at a higher open tomorrow.

    ReplyDelete
  152. Erich,
    oh certainly fudged.
    I bought a house 15 years ago: My payment is till $1500/month, the value of the house can go up or down, my payment is the same, so once you buy your house, it no longer affect you purchasing power, except for property taxes which are minimal. So as long as you don't buy during the mania, you're ok.
    To include housing prices coming down in the inflation numbers is a joke ... I'm sure no one bothered factoring housing prices during the mania in the inflation calculation ... every reason to rig the numbers and hide the robbery

  153. SF,
    pretty impressive actually. Had to go back to about the first of the year to find a losing day like this. Even though it`s good for our accounts now, it almost feels kind of spooky.

  154. There are a bunch of earnings reports coming out tonight, that might sway the mood a bit but they are not the heavy ones.

    ReplyDelete
  155. What percentage of Americans actually own a home? If you purchase a house 15 years ago, my guess is you can sell your home and make a profit.

  162. Brother, I know exactly what your feeling, I see it too. But.......

    Looking at those spy gaps, maybe a dollar bounce, that gld gap at(what is it 166-167). That would fit a lot of scenarios, bleed off a little excess pressure all the way around, and let this thing keep rolling in grand style.

    Plus you are kind of a glutton for punishment......

  163. Danno,
    I would ask the guy for your money back who wrote the chart book and buy yourself a subscription to Gary's premium site. I think you will rest a lot easier at night.

  164. Danno- you won't regret the subscription. Just the trades this week alone pay for the subscriptions many times over.

  167. Gary,

    If the dollar does break the three year low does this change your opinion on the four year low of the market?

    Maybe the four year low may not be so severe due to inflation. There are companies that do well in inflation.

    Why not wait for a break of the 10ma or at least a swing high?

  170. Gold is looking real good in the futures, open was perfect and it's trading at a nice grind, trading like it did out of the July bottom. Right now there is nothing but thin air above gold.

    Definitely a close below the 10, but not a swing high, we had a couple of those already.
