Silver Has Three Options To Go

Last week I showed you the chart where gold and silver were compared. The latter was in a worrisome lag behind the shining gold. I think most of us got tired to see if the white metal could update at least the top, that was hit last September amid gold striking one target after another reaching a 7-year maximum. Then I asked you to share your opinion as this alarming signal could be a double-edged sword. Below are your bets about it.

Silver

The majority picked the optimistic option of gold, leading the silver to the upside. The opposite came true last week as silver plummeted deep with a minus 14% off the week’s top dragging gold down; the latter lost almost an 8% off the weekly maximum. But before that, gold managed to reach target #4 at the start of last week!

Gold Hits Target And Seven Year High

Before we start analyzing gold, let’s see how two precious metals behave in comparison on the chart below.

This chart above starts from the bottom area of 2019. The most of the time, the yellow metal leads the game as Silver follows suit showing sharp moves to catch up with the gold. Sometimes the laggard throws over the leading trend amid excessive market reaction to the big moves of the top metal. Such extremes are rare and quickly get normalized by market “whales.” From this perspective, there is nothing new we can find on the chart. Continue reading "Gold Hits Target And Seven Year High"

Gold & Silver: Santa Claus Rally Postponed

Both metals missed the time targets, which were set on the 13th of December for gold and on the 20th of December for silver in the previous post as I was expecting the Last Drop Ahead Of Santa Claus Rally.

I updated the charts below and went deep into the anatomy of the current consolidation in the "bc” segment to show you in detail what holds the price for so long delaying the last drop. For that reason, I switched to a lower time frame of 4-hour.

Let me start with the silver chart as it has a less complicated structure than gold, and I will use it as a navigator.

Corrective structures are tricky as I always repeat it as a mantra, but it really has such a nature as it reflects the uncertainty in the market mixed with attempts of different market forces to break out of the current status quo. This creates sharp zigzags and false breakouts as we see it on the silver chart above. Continue reading "Gold & Silver: Santa Claus Rally Postponed"

Gold & Silver: Last Drop Ahead Of Santa Claus Rally?

Both metals went amazingly well with the plan that I shared with you a month ago. I have shown you a possible structure of more complex correction and set the time targets for both metals. Below you can see where you thought the completion of the corrective move would finish.

The votes were split almost even with a little margin in favor of the gold bugs as they preferred January 2020 as the ending point for the current extended correction. Silver fans chose Christmas day as their metal's chart showed it as a result of calculations.

Later on, there was an update where I set the price targets for both gold, and silver for the upcoming drop as the structure got more clarity.

As time goes by and the chart moves to the right, adding more and more bars, we can see the picture even clearer now to adjust both time and price targets for top metals below. Continue reading "Gold & Silver: Last Drop Ahead Of Santa Claus Rally?"

Updating The 3 Amigos And The Global Macro Message

This morning in pre-market the Amigos’ futures charts update the macro story…

global macro

…which goes something like this…

Copper, the cyclical Amigo (weekly chart) has furthered the intermediate trend line break we noted on October 25th. This is in line with the rally in US and global stock markets and even more so, the global macro reflation theme. It does not look so impressive yet on this weekly chart, but other components of the macro trade are starting to look impressive, especially on daily charts. So… steady as she goes.
