This Week’s Usual Suspects

Old Paradigm, Continues To Unravel

Bogart

One of the qualities that define leadership is the ability to recognize shifts in power or (public) perception that may lead to a complete change of direction.

Once that’s done, the change or new thinking is crafted into an approach whose objective is to successfully navigate (for however long) what will eventually become a ‘no-brainer’ way of thinking or acting.

As the old way(s) disintegrate, those who refuse or are unable to recognize this change, are likely to start ‘acting out’ in bizarre fashion as they realize the old method doesn’t work anymore.

They’re not able to see the shift as they were never leaders (to begin with) in the previous construct.

In part, this is what Buffett (not an endorsement) may have meant when he said … ‘It’s only when the tide goes out, that you find out who’s been swimming naked.’

Well, the tide’s going out in a big way and the water is receding with ever more rapidity.

As said before, what’s happening right now, is a fantastic public service for those paying attention.

A more efficient way could not have been constructed to reveal who has the best chance to be left standing (and surviving) as, or if, we come out the other side.

‘Acting Out’

Two links are going to be provided but not the ones to the specific examples at hand. Clicking on the links below will enable one to follow the rabbit trail and perform their own investigation.

Those links are here and here.

Into The Void

As the old way continues to self-immolate with what looks like increasing speed, a huge (leadership) void is opening.

Actually, that void was always there; posers were only posing, fooling the easily fooled.

Now, the jig is up.

The smart ones in this on-going collapse have already realized, probably a long time ago, ‘certifications’ and lots of letters after your name mean absolutely nothing when it all hits the fan.

They either are themselves, or are looking (and rightly so) for hardened leadership and/or experience.

As a result, we see real men (and women) stepping into the void: Men like Bjorn Andreas Bull-Hansen, Stew Peters and Dr. Vernon Coleman.

Women like Good Patriot.

Interestingly enough, at time stamp: 12:40 in her link she gives reference to Genesis 41. Coincidence? No.

Acceleration Ahead

Look for everything (supply chain, market implosion, The Speck, as we call it) to accelerate.

We can also get our popcorn ready for the self-imposed demolition of the ‘wealth management’ industry.

Prechter said it decades ago, ‘the next mega bear market will bring this sector to its knees’.

However, that’s an in-depth topic for another time.

In the meantime, go ahead and check for yourself. Pick any wealth management firm and go to their website.

I randomly went to three, just now.

One has a YouTube presence; one is local, and one is nationwide with over 7,000 ‘associates’.

All of them, every last one, are talking about the latest employment figures as if they are real.

Even Jerimiah Babe and Dan from I-Allegedly have stated the figures are false.

Remember, these outfits are “certified” by the same (combined) entity that’s pumping out the false data.

Just sayin’ 🙂

Talking Turkey

Lessons From Mr. Partridge

From Reminiscences of a Stock Operator, ‘Turkey’, aka Mr. Partridge, was much older than the rest.

The rumor in the broker’s office was that he was rich.

Even so, he was not contributing to heavy commissions (i.e. day and swing trading) as far as Livermore could tell.

The other thing was, that he never offered advice.

If a stock tip worked out, he would thank the tipster … if not, you never knew if he took a position or not.

Losing The Position & Psychological Impact

Turkey’s ‘losing the position’ remarks impacted Livermore the most. He recognized that Partridge wasn’t some old duffer; he was an astute speculator.

Losing the position: Not the same as holding a loser.

Maintaining a profitable position during a correction while at the same time, recognizing a big move could be in the works, requires (mental) strength; let the market itself say when to get in and out.

This link has Prechter’s ‘missing out’ story on big gains.

Continuing on with Turkey.

In the book, he said he ‘paid a high price for his tuition’ and does not want to incur a second fee.

Attempting to ‘play’ the market in and out then repeat, by definition, leaves one out of the big move.

It’s not the move itself; it’s the recognition that fiddling with the position and losing it, has resulted in a lost opportunity that will never come back.

The psychological damage is immense.

It’s worse than taking major loss. Watching a move take off without you when you had planned for months (or years) for the set-up, may have left no way to recover.

Which brings us to the market at hand.

Gold (GLD):

This site is not advice, and it does not make market ‘calls’.

Presented here, are posts documenting how Wyckoff analysis is being used to spot market set-ups.

Those set-ups have shown themselves over time to be potentially profitable (not advice, not a recommendation).

The weekly chart of gold (GLD) shows the up-thrust that was months in the making.

We’re going to invert the chart and so, the ‘up-thrust’ now becomes a ‘spring’.

Note:

Back in the day, when I wasted time posting on SeekingAlpha, I would get numerous complaints about ‘inverting the chart’.

They wanted it spoon-fed and did not have the mental plasticity to look at situations from the opposite perspective.

The ‘inverting the chart’ came from none other than Dr. Elder, himself … discussed in Trading For A Living or Come Into My Trading Room if memory serves.

The main interest on the ‘Alpha’ site seems to be pontificating about how sharp your pencil is; how close you can come to guess what earnings (or some other meaningless fundamental) will be at the next release.

I have not been back in years … they’re probably out there still arguing … only this time, the banter may be about which “masks” are most effective. 🙂

But I digress.

Months To ‘Spring’, Weeks To ‘Test’:

The inverted chart of GLD shows it took months for price action to penetrate support and create a spring condition.

Since then, we’ve had a move higher and now lower coming back near support.

Is this a test or a failure of the move?

It was a short week. However, it may still provide actionable data. For example, range of GLD, GDX and NEM, all narrowed. Volume contracted as well.

The inference is, thrust energy is weakening and thus weights the probabilities to a ‘test’ and not a ‘failure’.

Deflation Pivot:

Interestingly, we’re starting the see the consumer has finally reached the limit of their spending. Price are staring to edge lower as reported here and here by Economic Ninja.

Another data point, a bit esoteric, is ammunition. Pices are starting to taper off as well. Most notable is 22-LR.

A couple of months ago, 22-LR was about 0.10 per round (bullet). Looking at this site, we see the cheapest price has dropped to .080/round.

That does not look like much but it’s a 20% decline.

Summary:

Everyone has their own time frame and market approach.

Taking a cue from Turkey, referenced above, I would rather sit through a correction, incur the erosion of profit than exit and ‘click my heels’ as Prechter puts it; then watch the original position move for a huge gain without me aboard (not advice, not a recommendation).

We’re likely to find out very soon if this is a major pivot lower or if somehow, gold (GLD) bulls gain control and drive prices higher.

Gold Bulls … Trapped, Again ???

Turn The Screws

Thumbscrew

Having been on the wrong side of major moves numerous times, I have first-hand experience on what’s likely to happen next.

If the bulls are trapped for a second time, those in control, the bears, are going to put the screws to those on the wrong side (not advice, not a recommendation).

It could be a straightforward downward thrust or a slow capital draining grind.

We won’t know how bad it’s going to be (for them) until it’s over; Keeping in mind at all times, anything can happen.

Rule Of Alternation

Yesterday’s update said the following:

“Price action permitting, we’ll discuss how this first correction may be a brief one as opposed to a drawn-out choppy affair.”

Price action in GDX, has posted a new daily low (below last Friday’s low); a potential indication we could be starting the next leg lower.

The basis of that assessment is from a technical discussion published by Robert Prechter, Jr., in the early 2000s (’02, ’03, if memory serves) as ‘the rule of alternation’.

Basically, what happened last time, won’t happen this time.

Senior Miners, GDX

The daily chart shows the eight-day up-thrust, along with current action.

The mark-up makes it clear

It was eight days above resistance battling it out between bulls and bears.

Now, we’ve had one day above resistance (level posted on, 12/7) followed by a new daily low.

Correction Complete ?

The following (DUST-21-01), is the trade sequence currently being used.

Based on the above analysis, we’re going to tentatively call ‘The first correction’ as complete (not advice, not a recommendation).

Trade: DUST-21-01

  1. The Set-Up: Complete
  2. The ‘test’ or ‘gut-check’: Complete
  3. The first ‘correction’: Complete
  4. Continuation or Failure
    1. Trend identification
    2. Potential channel(s)
  5. Exit process
    1. Scale out
    2. Full exit
  6. Post trade evaluation

Looking For The Trend

Next up in the trade sequence, is identification of a trend or trends … if any.

For now, we have the potential channel shown below.

Now comes the part most traders/speculators find difficult; That is, wait.

As Livermore said in Reminiscences, (paraphrasing): ‘It wasn’t the thinking that made me money … it was the waiting’ (not advice, not a recommendation).

Tech Talk: Gold Miners (GDX)

Fibonacci Channel

Is there more pain ahead for the gold bulls?

Short answer: Yes

That is, unless the current patterns in price action change.

From a professional trader’s standpoint, one has to be on-watch for two things:

First:

Be mentally flexible enough to recognize the trade is falling apart and then exit.

Second:

As Prechter put it years ago, be mentally prepared to accept the huge gain.

At this juncture, what is the chart of GDX, telling us?

Senior Miners (GDX), Daily

The un-marked chart.

Marking-up with Fibonacci time sequence.

Adding-in some trend lines.

Zoom out to show the big picture.

Summary:

From low-close, to high-close, the counter trend move took a Fibonacci 34-days.

In the process, it appears that price action is now moving within a trading channel.

In addition, the counter-trend print high on 11/16/21, was close to a 38%, retrace level (not shown) of the entire move from the peak on 8/5/20, to the 9/29/21 low.

Positioning

The last update detailed how a short position was opened in the miners (not advice, not a recommendation).

At this juncture, price action continues to indicate lower prices ahead.

The short is being maintained.

Gold Miners … Going Short

The Battle From The Trenches

To date, there’ve been 232 transactions in the firm’s main trading account.

Each one has its own story.

The big one for now, is shorting the gold miners GDX, via DUST (not advice, not a recommendation).

We’re going to pull out the ‘card catalog’ on that one and take a brief look.

As a reminder, this post identified the breakout target for gold (GLD), months before it actually happened.

Also, in a prior post, it was discovered the miners had 3:1 downside response to recent down moves in gold.

Therefore, at this point in time, using leveraged inverse fund DUST, at -2X, the miners, gives an estimated, 6:1, market exposure.

Short entries were opened (shown below) once the gold market and miners broke to the upside.

Hysteria First

Those who’ve been here a while, already know part of the short set-up, was the necessary hysteria needed to get nearly everyone on the wrong (bullish) side.

Senior Miners, GDX

Just for reference, the daily chart of GDX, is below.

The arrow is the last known transmission of the gold bulls.

Early in the morning it was (6:30 a.m.).

I suppose it must have been from behind enemy lines, with one of the gold updates warning us about archrival, Russia.

As we can see from the price collapse, the Russians must have found our gold bulls. 🙂

Meanwhile, Back At DUST

The daily chart of leveraged inverse DUST, shows trade entry locations to date (not advice, not a recommendation).

The hourly chart below, gives a closer look.

The next chart is a zoom-in of the entries.

Positioning in this market for now, is essentially complete.

At this point, it’s time to monitor and track for any potential trend reversal or trendline break.

Early Or Late

Years ago, sometime around late 2007, or early 2008, Robert Prechter Jr., said concerning his trades, he tends to be a little bit early.

That implicitly means he might suffer through adverse action including loss-exit, if action goes counter enough.

There’s no perfect entry. Early or late, take your pick.

Fixing Entry Errors

As can be seen on the hourly chart, every trade entry was on a red (declining price) bar.

The risk is, price action will just keep on going red.

The benefit is a big one; I’m not chasing the market.

If I’m chasing, it means I’m not on my game or I never had a game or worse, a coward that can’t pull the trigger on a trade without more ‘confirmation’.

David Weis covers in his video, how to properly get aboard a market that’s already underway.

After the initial entries, DUST banged around the bottom (GDX at the top) for eight trading days.

In retrospect and looking at the chart, the adverse action was not much lower but it did not feel like it at the time.

Because of the months of planning, there was an inference the size of this reversal would be significant.

So far, it is.

In the process of reversing, price action itself has fixed trade entries made a little too early.

Summary

Future updates will show potential trend and/or channel action as well as Fibonacci time correlation.

At this point, the DUST trade is well underway.

A reasonable stop area would be in the vicinity of DUST 19.37 (not advice not a recommendation).

Silver, Going To Single Digits ?

It’s A Depression

And

It’s An Industrial Metal

They don’t call it ‘silver solder’ for nothing.

As the link above says, it’s almost ‘impossible’ to substitute.

Silver goes into nearly everything electronic.

Depending on whom you believe, the mainstream says the Future’s So Bright … right?

However, the charts say we may be headed much lower.

Remember the silver ‘short-squeeze’ and the little guy putting-it to ‘The Man’?

At this point, the only silver put around is on the little guy.

The Man’s going merrily along; short the sector that was so recently hyped with gold to “$3000 In Months, Not Years”

In Steven Van Metre’s latest update, he said no fewer than three times, the Fed ‘does not print money’.

It’s a false belief (by the public) they’re not about to change.

At the end if his video, he promised a report … or to make accessible his research on how that (not printing) is so.

Bringing us to the market at hand.

Silver (SLV)

Monthly un-marked chart.

The main thing to note above, SLV, is not at new highs.

In fact, at today’s price, SLV is down over 57%, from its all-time high set in April of 2011.

That in itself, should say there’s something wrong with the inflation, hyper-inflation, narrative.

Using a standard Fibonacci projection tool and tagging the 2011 high, the 2020 low, and the 2021, retrace high, we get the following:

It’s a little hard to see … so we’ll zoom in on the right side.

The 50%, Fibonacci projection, is somewhere between SLV: 9.00, and 9.50.

The premise for declining past 38% (around 13.70) and getting at least to 50%, is predicated on the collapse of the economy and subsequent evaporation of silver demand … at least from an industrial standpoint.

The precious metals ‘stacker’, discussed below, might become more interested in obtaining food than continuing to stockpile something that in times of famine, has very little use.

With the SLV chart above, is that even possible?

SLV, to single digits?

Well, can oil futures go negative?

Enough said.

Food As The Weapon

This site’s been steadfast in thinking, it’s the food first, then silver and gold.

Here are two more links to add to our ‘stack’ supporting that assessment.

The Stage Is Set

Famine Comes Next

As Bjorn says in ‘famine’, come this spring, when the masses realize there will be no (or very little) food and/or you need ‘papers’ to buy food, market pandemonium (if not already) is the likely result; precious metals included.

When To ‘Stack’

So, when will be the time to acquire precious metals (not advice not a recommendation).

It’s deceptively simple; ‘When you don’t want to’.

The time to acquire an asset, is when nobody else wants it … including you.

Positioning short the gold miners GDX, was done when everybody and their dog was a manic bull; screaming an upside breakout was “imminent”.

As Prechter said, positioning opposite the herd involves overriding the limbic system of the brain.

It’s an intellectual (logic-only, thinking) process.

However, overriding the lower brain, i.e., going against the herd, is physically painful.

Excruciating, is a better description.

He went on to say, some of the best traders/speculators he ever knew, were former Marines.

Positioning

Coming up (most likely tomorrow) will be a chart showing positions opened in GDX inverse fund DUST (not advice not a recommendation).

There’s no obligation on this site’s part to reveal that information.

However, it will help explain how the market itself directed trading actions.

It will also show how the on-going reversal corrected several entry errors on my part.

Random Notes

The Usual Suspects For The Week

No. 1

Institutional Destruction

The short video clip by Mark Dice, linked here, shows how former successful and possibly even meaningful (on a rare occasion) movie productions/franchises are being systematically destroyed.

This phenomenon is not just Hollywood but nationwide.

To be specific, the same type of destruction is occurring in the ‘wealth management’ industry.

One of the latest salvos is this ‘initiative’ to make that industry more diverse.

The comments section talks about the ‘talent going elsewhere’ to start their own business.

That may be true but remember, ‘Fiduciary Responsibility’ requirements make sure the person with the least amount of knowledge is in control … the client.

Which brings us to the next bullet item.

No. 2

The ‘Average Investor’

Years ago, somewhere around the early 1990s, Tony Robbins interviewed Robert Prechter Jr.

One of the questions Robbins asked was this:

‘What should the average investor do?’

Prechter’s response was timeless. He said:

‘Quit being the average investor’

Absolutely brutal but true.

It was a polite way of saying to get busy; stop being the ignorant, lazy, average American.

Study and learn the markets. That way you won’t be subject to the corruption and villainy that permeates the financial services industry.

Don’t think that statement’s true?

Just watch a couple of episodes of “American Greed” and see how many involve financial scams that fleece an unsuspecting investment public.

In the above link, our ‘professional’ positions short in a biotech company, Orexigen Therapeutics.

If there’s one thing an aspiring market trader speculator learns at the start, it’s never, never, never go short on biotech (at least the individual equity).

Anything can happen … and it did.

No. 3

Flash Crash Ready

This just out from ZeroHedge; Is another Flash-Crash in the cards?

First off, let’s review what a flash crash looks like.

Link to the 2010, crash.

“Paper” = Big institutional selling

’79s are trading … all the way down !!! ‘

Even way back in my SeekingAlpha days, I proposed the next major market hit would be like nothing else.

Possibly a 20% – 50%, drop overnight or something similar.

Is it not better to plan, analyze and position (not advice, not a recommendation) with a Black Swan event in mind or just go merrily along thinking you’re as close to the entry door as the exit?

Inflation, Off The Chart ?

Or … Massive Supply Restriction

Use the miss-information and propaganda to your advantage.

The following items are just a partial list of recent inflation, so-called ‘news’.

$3,000 Gold Imminent

Gold & Dollar Soar, CPI Surge

Consumer Prices Soaring …

Gold & Crypto Surge

Transitory” Debate Is Over

That last one … is that like “The science is settled”?

To be fair, there is some truth in the articles. Prices are indeed rising. All types of costs are going up like food, gasoline and on.

Supply Restriction:

Here’s a strange bit of information from an unlikely source.

It turns out that copper (mining) supplies are being restricted in Minnesota. Go to time stamp 2:52, at this link and listen to the next 30-seconds.

Sure, it’s a data point of one but then again, what about all the talk of shutting down sources of oil production?

On it goes. This is supply restriction, not inflation.

It depends on what the definition of ‘inflation’ is.

Here we have one of the usual suspects parroting the now-accepted (but likely incorrect) definition of inflation. Go to time stamp 1:23.

I’m sticking with Robert Prechter Jr.’s definition of inflation and that is: Expansion of credit that causes increased spending that in turn causes demand to rise and then prices rise in turn.

Do we have expansion of credit now … or the destruction (or, soon to be) of credit? That’s called deflation.

Dollar … Still Not Dead

The dollar of course, is the wild-card.

Everybody’s expecting a collapse but darned if that’s just not happening. Actually, the opposite is taking place.

Now, all of a sudden it’s a “Contrarian Trade”. You can’t make this stuff up.

We’re coming up on the one-year anniversary of this post.

It postulated there was potential for a significant, medium-to-long term reversal in the dollar.

Getting The Picture

In a way, the dollar post and subsequent ZeroHedge one-year-later recognition of the obvious, define what this site’s all about.

As stated in the ‘About’ section, not every analysis works out. To borrow a quote from David Weis, ‘Sometimes I’m 100% wrong’.

Presented here are analysis, actions, course changes, attempting to maneuver through the largest economic and population collapse in world history.

The main focus is not to increase followership … although that is happening.

As the follower numbers increase, it’s a good sign that more are becoming aware of how manipulated and controlled is the entire narrative.

One way to separate from the effect of the falsehoods, is to become proficient at reading price action. As David Weis used to say, ‘What’s the market saying about itself?’

Which brings us to the current juncture. Gold

Gold, At A Crossroads ?

The current assessment of gold (i.e. bearish or reversal potential) is similar to the dollar from a year ago.

Different from the dollar, are the momentum (MACD, etc.) indicators … which are currently pointing higher.

In the dollar, there was a bullish weekly MACD divergence helping us along.

Not so with gold (GLD).

What we do have, and what the linked list above provides, is a look into a type of mass hysteria.

The ‘pegging the meter‘ article that came out late Friday caused only a blip higher in GLD and GDX.

If we’re at max persistent inflation already, is there any more upside left?

As a caveat, the financial services industry. i.e. ‘wealth management’, is operating with a paradigm that no longer exists.

One of the objectives of this site, is to offer an alternative to the group-think of wealth managers.

Certification presents itself as an authority figure … just like Fox News presents itself as the alternative.

In fact, those in control own both sides of the narrative.

Does anyone really think FINRA (Financial Industry Regulatory Authority) is going to allow a wealth manager to make his clients overtly wealthy?

Even if that manager knew what to do, he’s hamstrung by regulations like ‘Fiduciary Responsibility‘; effectively guaranteeing the person with the least amount of knowledge (i.e., the client) is in control.

Confiscate The IRA/401K

A topic that has been discussed literally for years by my firm, is confiscation of retirement accounts.

The following is a cut-and-paste from this link which is password protected:

Note the date.

Written over two years ago.

Government To Confiscate IRAs?  It’s Easy.

There has been enough time for the American working (and saving) public to take the lessons of the 2007- 2009 meltdown and act accordingly.

One of those lessons would have been to realize just how close they came to having their IRAs confiscated.

Personally, I’m surprised that any of the following links below are still active.  Well, who’s looking at this stuff anyway?  Certainly, not the general public:

Dems Target

Fact Check

Congress considering

Government to Confiscate

Confiscation of Private Retirement

Even in the Wall St. Journal:  Targeting your 401K

After reading several of these reports in 2009 and later, it did not take long for me to set the plan in motion to cash out … completely.  I took the 10% penalty, while it’s still 10% and liquidated my accounts (not advice, not a recommendation).

The rest of the population?  Not so much.

I think it was Prechter who laid out just how easy it is for the government to seize IRA accounts.  It’s basically a two step process.

Step 1. 

The market drops 50% to 70%.  Remember, the drop from 2007 to the bottom in 2009 was 58%.

Step 2.

Declare a state of emergency (executive order) for the working population and move in to “save” the IRA accounts from more devastation.  

The result would involve a stiff withdrawal penalty (say 50%) and to “protect” the accounts from further losses, IRAs can only invest in U.S. Treasuries or Bonds.

______________________________________________________

End of cut-and-paste

The scenario may not happen exactly as detailed above. The Stew Peters link (repeated here) shows there are several ways to access the IRA accounts (not advice, not a recommendation).
