Watch The Financial Sector For The Next Topping Pattern

April 16, 2019 Chris Vermeulen TheTechnicalTraders.com A very interesting price pattern is setting up in the financial sector that could lead to a very big move in the US & Global markets.  Remember how in 2008-09, the Financial sector and Insurance sector were some of the biggest hit stock sectors to prompt a global market crisis?  Well, the next few weeks and months for the financial sector are setting up to be critical for our future expectations of the US stock market and global economy. Right now, many of the financial sector stocks are poised near an upper price channel that must be breached/broken before any further upside http:/price advance can take place.  The current trend has been bullish as prices have rallied off the December 2018 lows.  Yet, we are acutely aware of the bigger price channels that could become critical to our future decision making.  If there is any price weakness near these upper price channel levels and any downside price rotation, the downside potential for the price is massive and could lead to bigger concerns. Let’s start off by taking a look at these Monthly charts… This first Monthly Bank Of America chart is best at showing the price channel (in YELLOW) as well as a key Fibonacci price level (highlighted by the MAGENTA line).  We’ve also highlighted a price zone with a green shaded box that we believe is key support/resistance for the current price trend. As you can see from this chart, since early February … Continue reading

ADL Predictions For Price Of Gold

March 30, 2019 Chris Vermeulen TheTechnicalTraders.com As we’ve been suggesting for months, expect continued moderate price weakness in Gold and Silver through most of April 2019 and possibly into early May 2019 before a strong price rally will setup and push Gold prices well above $1500 before the end of 2019.  Our Adaptive Dynamic Learning predictive price modeling system has been calling for this move for many months (see the chart below).  This advanced predictive price modeling system is suggesting that in May/June of 2019, we will likely see a bigger price rally unfold in Gold and Silver which may be paired with some type of geopolitical or global economic event.  See this article for more details. Gold rallies on fear (in most cases) and the only reason for Gold to really as our ADL predictive modeling system is suggesting is that some renewed level of fear could enter the global markets.  This could be from any type of global crisis event or even a regional crisis event (think Brexit, EU crisis or some other foreign nation crisis).  We believe skilled traders should be actively seeking to identify buying opportunities below $1295 in Gold as we only have about 20 days left before our original bottom/base date of April 21, 2019. This Gold Monthly chart, below, highlights the ADL predictive modeling systems expectations as well as the three support levels that we believe all Gold traders should be targeting.  Gold is currently within the first target level and an opportunity to … Continue reading

Precious Metals Setup Final Buying Opportunity

March 28, 2019 Chris Vermeulen TheTechnicalTraders.com Our research team, at Technical Traders Ltd., has been all over the precious metals markets for the past 16+ months.  We’ve been so deep into research and study with regards to price action and technical/fundamental data, that we’ve been able to call market moves many months in advance. Recently, over the past few months, we’ve been warning that an April 21~24 date is likely to set up an ultimate price bottom in the precious metals market. It could prompt a broader upside price swing that should eventually lead to a much bigger upside breakout move.  On March 8, 2019, we posted this article that clearly outlined our thinking at that time saying a bounce to $1315-1320 before heading down to $1255. Take a minute to read that article and consider this current downside price action as a gift the precious metals markets are allowing for all of us.  This is the move that we’ve been warning about for months – the retracement from the $1315~1320 level that should bottom out near $1240~1265 and will ultimately become the “momentum base” for the future upside move.  Precious metals are starting a move that we predicted many months ago.  Our researchers believe Gold will trade below $1275 for a brief period of time (likely just a few days or weeks) before setting up a broad-based momentum bottom.  Our objective is to “leg into” this setup with a series of long trades for the ultimate upside breakout. Our research suggests … Continue reading

20 Days Left To Find Buying Opportunities in Gold

March 24, 2019 Chris Vermeulen TheTechnicalTraders.com Our researchers have been glued to Gold, Silver and the Precious Metals sector for many months. We believe the current setup in Gold is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for skilled traders to stake positions below $1300 before a potentially incredible upside price move.  We’ve been alerting our members and follower to this opportunity since well before the October/December 2018 downside price rotation in the US markets. October 5, 2018: Prepare for a gold and silver rally December 9, 2018: Waiting for gold to erupt Jan 25, 2018: Why everyone is talking about gold and silver Additionally, our researchers called the bottom in the US equities markets and warned of an incredible upside price rotation setting up just before the actual price bottom occurred on December 24, 2018. December 26, 2018: Has the equities selloff reached a bottom yet Our research continues to suggest that Gold and Silver will rotate within a fairly narrow range over the next 3~5 weeks before setting up a likely price bottom near April 21, 2019.  We’ve been predicting this bottom formation for many months and have been warning our followers to prepare for this move and grab opportunities below $1300 when they set up. This first chart, a Monthly chart showing our TT Charger price modeling system, clearly illustrates the strength of this bullish price trend and the initiation of this trend back in early 2016.  One of the strengths of the TT Charger modeling system is that it establishes a number of key … Continue reading

Russell 2000 Leads The Way For Technical Analysts

March 22, 2019 Chris Vermeulen TheTechnicalTraders.com   The Russell 2000 ETF continues to deliver critical technical and longer-term price patterns for skilled technicians.  Combining the IWM chart with the Transportation Index, Oil, Gold, and others provide a very clear picture of what to expect in the immediate future. Recently, we posted a research article about the Head-n-Shoulders pattern setting up in the $INDU.  Again, the IWM chart is also showing a very clear Head-n-Shoulders pattern with critical resistance near $159.50 and support near $144.25.  Our researchers, at Technical Traders Ltd., believe this right Shoulder will prompt a downside market move towards support near $144.25 before a downward sloping wedge pattern sets up.  This first downward price leg will setup and congesting wedge formation that will, eventually, break to the upside and drive market prices higher. We authored a research article about this pattern setup on February 17, 2019. Skilled traders watch all the charts to assist them in identifying characteristics that can assist them in understanding price moves, key support/resistance levels, and price patterns.  This IWM chart should be on everyone’s radar at the moment.  Where the IWM finds support, so will the other US stock market indexes. WEEKLY IWM RUSSELL 2000 INDEX PATTERN   The IWM setup indicates we may only see a 5~7% downside price swing before support is found.  We’ll have to watch how this plays out over the next few weeks/months to determine if the $144.25 level is true support or if the lower $137.00 level … Continue reading

Your Best Opportunity For Wealth Creation

You can call me lucky if you want, I don’t care. I am only out to become wealthy in the next two years. If you choose to sit out this coming rally you will have no one to blame but yourself, but don’t tell your spouse as they will  surely disown you, if you miss this opportunity. This is Dudley Pierce Baker, the editor of http://JuniorMiningNews.com and http://CommonStockWarrants.com and I believe we are on the verge of a major move up in the resource sector. Timing is everything in the markets and the timing seems to be on our side for resource investors. The next two years are being talked about now by several newsletter writers and even by Jim Cramer (CNBC) as an excellent time to being investing in the precious resource sector. In a few years, some investors will think they are smart as heck when if fact they are just lucky to have been invested in the resource sector at this particular time. So, timing will prove the expression correct, that ‘it is better to be lucky than to be smart’. The important take away for you as an investor is that the stage has been set (bottoms are in and bases built) and the next two years may well present investors with an explosive rally in silver, gold, copper and possibly uranium. Simon Constable writing for TheStreet.com, Why It’s a Good Time to Invest in Copper has an interview with Jim Cramer on Freeport-McMoRan: Prices Are Exploding.

Best Precious Metals Investment And Trades For 2019

March 17, 2019 Chris Vermeulen Technical Traders Ltd.   It’s been years since the gold and silver topped out in 2011. We have been waiting for a new bottom form and a new bull market to emerge for nearly 8 years. In this article, I’m going to compare palladium, gold, platinum, and silver and show you which of these precious metals I feel is the best long-term investment and also the best trade for 2019. The analysis presented below is based on technical analysis using previous significant highs, and Fibonacci extensions. Both of these techniques work exceptionally well for predicting price targets both to the upside and also price corrections to the downside. If you have never used Fibonacci retracement or extensions in your trading I highly recommend learning more about them. I have no doubt it will improve your market price projection targets for your investments. I have found this technique to be the number one best trading tool for projecting future price movements in all asset classes. The charts below will show to price forecasts for each metal. The first price target is based on the previous significant high that price made between 2000 and the current timeframe. Previous significant highs are typically the first target for the price to reach and that is also our first major upside target for these metals. The second price target I use is based on Fibonacci extensions using stand out lows formed anywhere between 2002 to the current price time and … Continue reading

Countdown to the Precious Metals Breakout Rally

COUNTDOWN TO THE PRECIOUS METALS BREAKOUT RALLY March 14, 2019 If you have been following our research over the past few months, you already know that we’ve called just about every major move in Gold over the past 14+ months.  Recently, we called for Gold to rally to  $1300 area, establish a minor peak, stall and retrace back to setup a momentum base pattern.  We predicted this move to take place back in January 2019 – nearly 30+ days before it happened. Now, we are publishing this research post to alert you that we are about 15~30 days away from the momentum base setup in Gold which will likely mirror in Silver.  Thus, we have about 20+ days to look for and target entry opportunities in both Gold and Silver before this momentum bottom/base sets up. This Monthly Gold chart, below, shows you the historic peaks that make up a current resistance level near 1370.  This level is critical in understanding how the momentum base and following breakout will occur.  This resistance level must be broken before the upside rally can continue above $1400, then $1500.  Ultimately, the momentum base we are expecting for form before April 21 is the “last base” to setup before a much bigger upside price move takes place.  In other words, pay attention over the next 30 days before this move happens.   This next Monthly Silver chart is the real gem of the precious metals world.  The upside potential for Silver is actually much … Continue reading
