Gold Channel … Down

10:47 a.m., EST

Contact points confirm channel

Gold (GLD) heading lower

The two hits on the right side channel line provide confirmation of the trend.

An expanded version of the daily is below:

So far, we’ve had the blockage of the Suez Canal. Auto parts being sent to the bottom of the ocean off Japan. ‘Mysterious’ grain silo fires destroying harvested crops.

But wait, there’s more. This just in:

A fire has destroyed the largest grease plant in the U.S.

If transportation is shut down as a result of cyber attack, fuel pipelines off-line, no grease to lubricate the wheels or any number of other (planned … and don’t think there’re not) events, the last thing that’s going to help get anyone through, is a ‘stack’ of inedible metal.

It’s no secret this site’s been using the Biblical precedent of Genesis 41.

That is: Grain and Corn come first … then gold and silver.

The ‘stacking’ public has got this message reversed. Of course, this is not advice or a recommendation.

However, for those that can see, it’s so obvious the goal is ‘controlled demolition’ of the supply chain. All of it.

We’ll put everything back to ‘normal’ if you just get injected.

Meanwhile, biotech IBB, and SPBIO, have both posted a new daily low.

IBB is poised to penetrate the resistance area identified in this update, and come back to test the wide bar.

If that happens, we have a Wyckoff up-thrust in play. More analysis of biotech to follow.

CORN Rise Doubles

Its never been the same since the ‘Derecho‘, August 2020

The corporate finance writers, i.e., ‘Les Bourgeois’, will jump on the inflation bandwagon and continue to say it’s because of the dollar.

Well, let’s see what happens next.

The dollar’s in position to mount a sustained, if not sharp (and completely unexpected) rally.

What a great opportunity for a ‘proof’. That’s engineering speak for a chance to show something (absolutely) to be true or false.

There’s of course, no guarantee the dollar rally will happen.

If it does, we’ll keep an eye on the corn market and see if it declines in relation to the dollar.

If the price rise is really the result of inflation, a dollar rally ‘should’ cause corn to decline.

Corn in New Trend, Higher

1:53 p.m. EST, Yesterday’s update finished with this:

To wit, CORN has just pivoted to the up side in a new trend; rising at over 437%, annualized.

If and when this news hits the mainstream press, it’s likely to be painted as ‘signs of inflation’.

It’s easy to be a lazy mainstream financial press writer these days.

All one has to do, is write some financial drivel and blame ‘The Speck’, inflation or climate change for the crisis du jour.

There … done.

The next day will be the same. Except maybe we’ll throw in something about the direction of interest rates; how they too, are somehow controlled by ‘climate change’. There … done.

The hard part then, is to dig into actualities.

What’s really going on.

As the systematic dismantling of the food supply infrastructure continues, prices will naturally rise. There’s plenty of documentation supporting this assessment.

The best site identified thus far, that includes supporting data is iceagefarmer.com.

Moving on to the chart:

It’s never been the same for CORN since the Drecheo of last year (highlighted below).

After the drecheo, CORN moved steadily higher. It then morphed into a trading range around mid-January this year. Then, on April 31st, there was a major breakout to the upside.

We’re now trending at above 430%, annualized.

The dashed arrow on the middle of the chart is the exact same trend. The right side arrow was just copied and moved over to the middle area.

Markets have their own characteristics.

At this point, CORN’s characteristic is to trend, rise aggressively (dashed arrow), go into a range, then break out higher again (solid arrow).

With that, we can expect at some point for CORN to go into another range … but it’s not guaranteed. Panic may set in way before that.

My frim is not trading the grains but using them as a proxy for how much time is left to prepare. At this point, it looks like time’s very short.

All we need is another mid-west (growing area) weather ‘event’ such as an unexpected freeze or persistent flood; launching corn and grains to nosebleed levels.

That would give the oligarch’s their chance to sell it as ‘climate change’.

It is, in a way:

However, they’re the ones making the climate.

Gold (GLD) Hits Target … 166

Bring out the usual suspects.

Last month, March 13th, had this forecast for GLD, to retrace at least to 166-area; a Fibonacci 23.6%, level.

So, here we are.

GLD closed last Friday, at 166.35 … close enough.

Before we get to the chart analysis, we have the following summary from the video link in the header line:

‘We were seeing some noticeable improvement in the economy … especially in the U.S. as the [speck protection] took hold.’

(time stamp 5:03).

‘Taking hold’, indeed.

We can see just how well that’s going, here, here and here … adding to a very long list.

Before we leave this topic, we have entire school districts being shut down from speck protection reactions.

Let’s extrapolate that into ‘entire grocery chains shut down’, or ‘entire air transport companies shut down’ and the picture is clear.

By now, anyone with two lipids rubbing together can see the false narrative has reached beyond absurd into a completely different realm.

We’ll just have to call it the ‘Twilight Zone‘ for lack of a better description.

All of this will affect the markets … gold included; probably in ways unknown at this point.

Analysis:

So, here we are at the 23.6% retrace. What’s next?

First off, 23.6% is very weak. It’s not typically seen as the final (upside) reversal point in general market behavior.

However, if GLD does reverse from here, posting new daily and weekly lows, it’s in serious trouble.

The next chart has GLD in a downward channel that’s been in-effect since last August.

Pulling out to a longer time frame … the monthly; using a Fibonacci projection from these levels we have some interesting price targets.

Frist, is the 1:1, or 100.0% – 100.0% on the Fibonacci tool that projects GLD down to about 130 (129.64). This just happens to be the area Steven Van Metre has been discussing (as a potential target) for months.

Moving on lower to the 69.25 area for GLD, are targets mentioned by Harry Dent … albeit, years ago (actually, it was below $400).

We should keep in mind, a Fibonacci retrace of 76.4%, from all time high to cycle low, 1999/2001, is the 64-area on GLD.

Getting below $400 at this juncture seems unlikely.

Summary:

A downside reversal off 23.6% retrace would signify substantial weakness.

GLD would have to push below last week’s low of 161.81, to increase probabilities of a sustained downside move.

Stated many times on this site, precious metals are a crowded trade.

Operating at the same time, adverse reactions (and death) being caused by speck protection. A massive number of the population is subject to being permanently debilitated.

That could feed into the availability of all items; gold included but more importantly, the food supply.

To wit, CORN has just pivoted to the up side in a new trend; rising at over 437%, annualized.

More on that, later.

CORN: Breakout Ready

Price action in futures tracking fund CORN, is congesting in a tight range; ready for breakout to the upside.

This is not about inflation.

Frequent visitors to this site already know the entire food supply chain, from field to market, is being systematically destroyed.

Probably the best source of documentation is at ice age farmer.

For years, ‘ice age’ has been reporting step by step plans and events in place to choke-off food production and distribution.

Digressing for just a bit: The firm managing this site, presenting its analysis of markets and corollary events, is constantly searching for additional information or new data sources.

If a new market analysis (or other news) source is located, then that ‘source’ says there’s food price inflation because of dollar devaluation, it’s eliminated as being reliable or aware of actual events: DONE.

At this point, everyone should know exactly why food prices are rising.

Whenever we get the next ‘Black Swan’ event, there’ll be no time to vet out information sources. That should’ve been done long before there’s another market or world upset.

The recent Game Stop (GME) event may just be a blip; a side detour in the overall plan.

Van Metre calls the whole short squeeze “brilliant”. So it was.

We can rest assured, that hole in the dike (a proletariat uprising) will be plugged ‘tout de suite’.

Food is the key. It’s the choke point. End of digression.

Getting back to CORN. Price action may congest more before a sustained breakout. There may even be a head-fake to the downside to flush out any weak longs.

From an investment or trading standpoint, price is at the point where political events could cause action to become unreliable … think Jimmy Carter and the grain embargo after the Russians (Soviets at that time) invaded Afghanistan.

It’s the trader’s discretion whether or not to position long.

My firm’s action is to be aware of price and use it as a proxy for up-coming events.

Fact vs. Fiction

Two reports discussing the exact same topic, are linked here and here.

One of the reports is fact; the other is fiction.

Just two minutes, and twenty-eight seconds into one of those, the fairly tale begins.

The other has its head on straight and is on-target with truth; a disturbing truth.

Alas, the hyper-inflation narrative runs deep. Comments from the last Van Metre report shows just how deep the rabbit hole goes.

We’ll paraphrase:

‘GDX filled the downward gap … metals to skyrocket higher’.

With every day that passes, we see truth of what comes first; as reported here, it’s corn first, then gold & silver.

Putting it differently; seed producers can’t keep up with demand.

At least one supplier linked here, is shut down … temporarily they say because of huge order backlog.

Interesting their planed re-open, is for the 20th. We’ll see if that happens.

Way back in April last year in at least one state, it was illegal to buy seeds. That same scenario never happened with precious metals.

Are the coin dealers shut down? Precious metals may indeed become important at some future date. However, at this juncture it’s easy to hypothesize you won’t be able to buy or sell without ‘speck’ protection.

Getting that protection essentially makes being around to see (or function in) the future a moot point; doesn’t it?

CORN: Breakout

Tracking fund CORN, has broken out of its five-month channel.

Price action is coming back to test and in the process, may be forming an inflection point.

This just out from ADAPT2030, has the food shortages accelerating.

The uninformed mistake food price rises as inflation. It’s an availability problem.

As reported late December here, there’s historical precedent, food comes first … then gold and silver.

No matter. The gold bulls power on. Buying into the metal and its tracking funds only to be whacked again and again at the most inopportune times.

Two reputable sources of long-term food supply are here and here.

Corn Goes Vertical

Ever since the inland hurricane, the ‘Derecho’ of August 10th, it’s never been the same for corn. Now, it’s going vertical.

The entire U.S. agricultural food supply infrastructure is being systematically dismantled.  Control the food, control the population. Simple.

It seems the ‘preppers’ tend to focus on stockpiling silver and gold.

If your’re getting ready for what’s coming, from a historical perspective, that’s not the place to start.

Going way back …. thousands of years, during the famine in Egypt of Joseph’s time, we have this:

“And Joseph gathered corn as the sand of the sea, very much, until he left numbering; for it was without number”

“And the famine was over all the face of the Earth: and Joseph opened all the storehouses and sold unto the Egyptians: and the famine waxed sore in the land of Egypt.”

“And all countries came unto Joseph for to buy corn; because that the famine was so sore in all lands.”

Gen 41:  Vs.  49, 56, 57, KJV

They paid for the corn first, with gold and silver.  Then they paid with their livestock.  Then they paid by selling themselves into life-long slavery. We can equate that last part (slavery) as getting the vax.

As corn is going vertical, the bond market is signaling its move as well.

Just now, today, TLT is rotating higher.

Yesterday, Steven Van Metre showed a chart (time stamp 10:00) of the speculators beginning to back off their historic short position.

They’ve figured out they’re trapped. Now, they’re trying to sneak out the door without being completely impaled on a sharp bond spike.

The S&P, Dow, NASDAQ, Russell 2000, all appear to be holding near their highs.

Biotech (IBB), as reported yesterday, is different.

Something major is brewing below the surface with the biotech deception.  Price action itself is showing it’s the place to be for the short-side.

Further info on biotech’s downside is here and here.

Positions remain unchanged (as of 3:02 p.m. EST).  Stops have been moved; not advice, not a recommendation.

What’s For Dinner?

According to this report from ice age farmer, it’s trash and bugs.

While the sleight of hand is taking place in the political arena, the distraction allows (without notice) some fast food outlets to put garbage, literally, in their food.

Eating real food on a go-forward basis, is going to cost. 

If huge numbers of the population are on government assistance, they’ll take whatever they’re given.

According to the link above, that ‘given’, will likely be ‘up-cycled’ food which is trash, garbage, along with ‘insect’ protein.

Those accessing these updates, just by repetition are (or already) getting the picture.  There’s a lot more going on than just the markets.

It’s the markets though, that gives us a way (at least for now), to circumvent the cost required to separate from the herd.

Prior updates have discussed the food supply and specifically, corn. 

One of those highlighted an area in CORN, that would present an opportunity.

With new restrictions coming or already in place, it’s likely that restaurant dining will take another hit.  Winter’s rapidly on the horizon and outside dining will be eliminated for months to come.

Conversely, demand for restaurant ingredients will be affected which in turn, could affect the commodities markets … at least temporarily.

That brings us to CORN.

Even though the CORN fund is an amalgamation of three futures contracts, it’s interesting that it still adheres to classical analysis. 

We can see the measured move from the wedge breakout and the retrace back to resistance.

It’s what happens next that’s important.

Restaurant demand could collapse again; driving CORN lower. 

If so, and we get below the support area (creating a spring, reversal,  condition), it could be the last time … ever, we see these prices.

Revelation 6:6

When a stock market trader starts quoting Revelation, you know it’s bad or about to get that way.

That’s what we have here (time stamp 14:20) where David Dubyne and Bob Kudla discuss a variety of events but mainly, the world’s food supply.

“And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.” Revelation 6:6

This site has presented in past updates sufficient data to show the nation’s food supply is being systematically dismantled via at least two avenues.

First:

Naturally occurring disasters are intensified (or outright created) by weather manipulation. 

Second:

The planting and harvesting infrastructure is being intentionally disrupted or dismantled by what this site has termed ‘the speck’.

By now, anyone accessing these posts should know what the (imaginary) speck is and it’s even discussed in the above links. The press (financial and mainstream) talk about the speck incessantly.

Put the lie out there long enough and eventually it will become belief.

Back to the markets and more specifically, CORN

CORN was a trade that was entered by the firm but then decided the look was not right and exited at essentially break-even.  That trade was entered right around the area that’s now labeled as a 38% retrace level.

The trade would have been modestly profitable but it’s not what we’re looking for. What we’re looking for may be yet to come.

The 38%, retrace level is now well established support and if penetrated by subsequent price action would generate a reversal condition known as a Wyckoff spring.

Shown on the chart as well, is the wide high-volume price bar that’s right in the middle of the 50%, retrace level.

This is where it gets interesting.  Markets behave in such a way as to come back to high volume areas for a test.

If somehow, CORN retraces to this level for a test of the wide bar, it will automatically set-up a spring (reversal) condition by penetrating price action at the 38% level.

Our edge in this situation, are the bullet items discussed above.  The entire world’s food supply is in jeopardy.  That’s a known fact.

Crops are failing world-wide.  Weather patterns are erratic and manipulated. 

Knowing this provides a fundamental backdrop that should CORN retrace to test the wide bar, it’s not likely to stay there long.

In addition, if CORN reaches the 50% area, it may never come back to those levels.
