As counter-intuitive as it sounds, for there to be a significant downside reversal in gold (GLD), the vast majority if not nearly all traders, speculators, and investors need to be on the wrong side of the trade.
Getting that crowd positioned without them realizing it, or being plain hypnotized like our asylum escapees, the gold bulls, helps get articles like this accepted by the masses.
The daily chart of gold proxy GLD, shows the potential target area for reversal.
This area has been a reversal target for months … since mid-September.
Working the markets in this way, that is, identifying a potential future condition for trend change, allows one to think about how it’s all going to go down.
Of course, consistent, incessant, propaganda along with bullish (asylum) hysteria is a must. 🙂
Just to be fair, sometimes and on a rare occasion, the crowd is right.
With that in mind, we’ll have to see how GLD price action behaves if/when it breaks through resistance.
Just like the biotech sector intentionally euthanizing (a polite word for what’s really happening) its customer base, here we have another entity calling out its own followers as the problem.
It’s similar to the rabid, mindless, one-way (only goes up) gold bulls crying ‘it’s all rigged’, when their pathetic attempts at analysis don’t work out; we now have another entity citing YOU as the problem when the forecasts fall flat.
This is yet another so-called financial source that can be permanently crossed off the watch list.
Brutal, But Beneficial:
Admittedly, the ‘tone’ of the posts on this site are not for everyone.
Even mild-mannered Dan at I Allegedly, finds himself responding to snowflakes that complain about his ‘get ready’ posts.
There’s good reason why the average are so ignorant.
For those who were actually listening in middle-school, the history books conveniently leave out the part where millions of Americans died of starvation during the Great Depression.
No pictures of emaciated bodies. Nothing.
With what’s coming, we’re likely headed for mass casualties in one form or another. The financial community refuses (from what I’ve seen) to discuss this up-coming event.
If you’re still using a ‘financial advisor’ and they’re not talking about, or don’t know about the elephant, do you really want to be (paying for and) taking direction from someone who’s that lazy, fearful, or ignorant?
Prechter, said it himself when he stated, the next mega bear market’s going to wipe out the ‘wealth management’ industry.
We may be on the cusp of that now.
With that said, this site does not, and will not give financial advice.
Each person has his (her) own situation in life. You are the one to decide on your next direction or action.
What this site does do, is attempt to provide analysis and supporting price action data on what’s really going on.
What’s the market saying about itself?
If you’re still reading, that was a very long intro to get to our topic for the day: Gold miners, GDX.
Wyckoff Analysis: Senior Miners, GDX
What we see from the weekly chart is straightforward.
GDX, has been channeling lower for about a year:
The next chart shows we’ve penetrated support and are now testing the underside.
Of note: GDX is in ‘spring’ position. An upward attempt is to be expected.
If GDX was to break out and start a sustained bull move, this would be the spot. We’re at the danger point.
In my view, the participants in this sector are borderline delusional, if not completely insane.
They disregard what the market’s actually doing; holding to a (so far, for years now) unverified belief that ‘$10,000/oz gold, is just around the corner.’
It could very well be … but only after the (possibly, soon to be) starving stackers have sold off their hoard to buy food.
One has to wrap their mind around the fact, we’re being subjected to a long term diabolical plan.
Thinking and acting with that long game in mind (in my view) provides at least a hope for not only survival, but positioning to prosper during the on-going collapse.
No other major index has three consecutive quarters lower.
Even the gold miners (GDX, GDXJ), while in a bear market, still had an up quarter with the one ending June 30th, this year.
So, what does this mean?
Slow At First. Then, All At Once:
The first answer is the obvious one; the air is slowly but steadily (thus far) coming out of this sector.
The second answer is more complicated.
As discussed yesterday, we’ve seen the phenomenon of instantaneous focus shift in disparate parties … a well documented and repeated occurrence in the animal kingdom.
We could see a similar thing with biotech or the markets overall.
As Dan from I Allegedly reported yesterday, the container ship pile-up off the coast and slow unloading is intentional.
The resulting shortages are intentional.
The corresponding price rises (camouflaged as ‘inflation’ by the media), are intentional.
It’s possible (speculation) that by having prices go up and the media touting it as inflation, the public, pile into the corresponding sectors such as gold, silver and the miners … all of which have been heading lower.
More importantly, what this crowd does NOT do, is go the other direction; sell and sell short, stockpile food, water, medicine, tools, hardware, consumables, protection, backup power.
Of course, some of them are.
However, just in my neighborhood as I look around and down the street, there are fifteen houses that are visible.
I know for a fact, only two (this residence and the neighbor across the street) have been, and are, taking preparatory action: That equates to 13%.
Driving through the neighborhood to get to a main road, there are about another 40 homes.
I can see, none of them have an operation garden (or livestock) of any kind: That makes our ‘prep’ percentage go down to 3.6.%.
The real percentage (for the entire neighborhood) may be close to 0.5%, or less.
This is probably a typical number but your mileage may vary.
That low percentage (0.5%), gives a clue to how vicious a down-draft could be once everyone realizes they’ve been had.
Couple that with our ‘elephant’ from yesterday, and it may be absolute insanity.
All of which, brings us to the chart of biotech (SPBIO).
Not only was it a down quarter but on a monthly and weekly basis, SPBIO has posted reversal and continuation (down) bars respectively.
The unmarked monthly chart of SPBIO, is below:
The next two charts show monthly reversal bars and then a Fibonacci projection to lower levels.
The projection was taken from the all time high on February 9th, this year, to the intermediate low, May 11th; then the counter-trend pivot high on June 28th.
It’s interesting to note; the monthly reversal bars are Fibonacci 8-months apart.
