Not to be outdone, we have this ‘me too’ melt-up article as well.
Let’s not forget, all the ‘Fed must do something’ rumors and feigned concern by its members.
If anyone really wants to know the big picture, the overall plan (a wide majority do not), this interview may be the best explanation to-date.
With all of that, we certainly could get some kind of rally in the coming week. We’ll let the price action speak for itself.
As a reminder, Wyckoff analysis does not concern itself with press releases, rumors or ‘fundamentals’; Wyckoff himself, determined based on price action alone, they have no material effect on market movement.
In his words, ‘other forces are at work’, and it’s those forces that interest us.
Gold & Silver
As said in this update, gold (GLD) was just ‘ticks’ away from posting a new monthly low. In fact, it got just 0.24-pts, from a new low before rebounding.
Of course, each time we get any kind of rally in the metals, there’s the usual hysteria. Even though for the past seven months and counting, those rallies occur at lower and lower levels … i.e., a bear market.
Shown below, it’s in a trading channel with price action at the right-side channel line.
Gold (GLD) Weekly
The chart below gets closer-in.
From left-most contact point on the channel to the initial contact on the right side is a Fibonacci 13-weeks.
Also note, the weekly high posted at the center line is a Fibonacci 5-weeks from the left-most contact.
Highly emotional markets tend to adhere to Fibonacci until either the emotion wears off or ‘everybody’ recognizes the structure.
Obviously, to keep the channel intact, a lower open (and lower action) at the next session is needed.
The last update, posted late in the session, said with the upward bias provided by the sizable Op-Ex event, we can look for the weakest (or one of the weakest) sectors.
The chart below summarizes yesterday’s action:
Friday 10/21/22, Single Day Gains
Gold miners GDX, is the outlier at the top and real estate IYR, the outlier at the bottom.
Before anybody gets excited about ‘hyperinflation’, just a reminder; silver SLV’s, action has retraced to a weak 38.2% (chart not shown), as it was forecasted to do from last week’s update:
“Silver (SLV) is currently at support levels; therefore, some upward action (staying below SLV: 18.5) is normal behavior.”
Price action is the final arbiter; we’ll see what happens next.
Back to real estate.
Professional Wisdom: ‘The Crash’
We’re going to use the experience and insight provided by Scott Walters concerning the potential for real estate; that is, we’re in a world-wide event the scale of which, no one alive (and possibly, ever) has seen before.
