After the last post on GLD, price action pushed lower for one day before starting its anticipated move upward.
That lower push has altered the end point for counter trend action.
Adjusting forecasts and possible termination points is never-ending.
Each bit of price action gives a new data point; confirming, negating, altering the perceived scenario.
A 38.2% retrace of GLD, on a closing basis from the November 30th low, gets to around the 177.00 area
This area also corresponds with a one-to-61.8%, “a-b-c” move from that November low.
Time wise, if GLD continues higher, we’re still on track for around December 29th, having already passed the December 16th, forecasted turn.
Note: The December 16th date was off at this point, by one day. GLD may have reached its counter trend high on the 17th.
If there’s a trade set-up (to go short) during the last week of the year, the objective is to initiate a position in the Senior Mining Index (GDX) via inverse fund DUST; not advice, not a recommendation.
Because of the current ambiguity, no positions are planned … yet.
At this point, we’re using the deflationary model, or macro as outlined by Steven Van Metre. Price action thus far, is confirming that thesis.
Also worthy of investigation (more later) is how banks will get out of their massive long-bond positions. A potential scenario of Negative 6%, is discussed by J. Bravo and Jeff Booth.
We’ll see if further investigation of ‘Negative Six’ as we’ll call it, includes IRA confiscation.
Years ago, Prechter wrote just how simple that would be.
Summarizing his words:
We’d have a complete market melt-down. IRA withdrawal penalties made prohibitive; for your ‘safety’ only treasuries can be in the portfolio. Voila! We’re done!
What needs to be kept in the forefront of everyone’s mind accessing these updates is the overall objective remains the complete destruction of the middle class.
Even in the Bravo post liked above, at Time Stamp 19:50, he presents that destruction as the Neo Feudalism already discussed here, two-weeks ago.
Price action is the key. If GLD continues higher and past the 50% retrace, it indicates something else is afoot.
If that happens, the bearish look then turns bullish.
A downward reversal from this point would suggest the December 16th date was off by one day and the corrective move higher is complete.
