Is Gold Making The Spring Top?

 

 

 

 

Summary

  • We expect the US Dollar Index to rally backup to 92.00 levels.
  • Gold is overbought and due for a correction.
  • A time for a consolidation is at hand.

Dollar Rally?

One the highlights in the news last week was the world economic forum in Davos. On Wednesday, the US dollar struck a weaker note on the basis of comments by the US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin. He said, ahead of the central bank’s policy decision, that he welcomed the weaker currency when the Euro was firm. The following day, President Trump negated these comments by confirming that he wanted a strong dollar. So there seems to be some confusion in defining the future path of the US dollar as the world’s reserve currency.

Last week the dollar was under pressure on expectations that the European Bank and Bank of Japan would normalize their monetary policies. The market then broke into the next phase of the bear market with Mnuchin’s comments.

If we put aside this political rhetoric, which seems to only confuse the market even further, the fact of the matter is that the US Dollar Index made a new low on Thursday of 88.25. On Friday, the market recouped a good part of the loss from the previous day, closing at 88.89.

The condition of the dollar seems to indicate that the price has reached an extreme level below the mean and that there is a strong probability that from this oversold condition we should see a corrective rally back up to the 92.00 levels over the coming weeks.

Upon completion of this swing rally…

GOLD AND BITCOIN : INVERSE RELATIONSHIP

 

 

Summary

There appears to an inverse relationship between Bitcoin and gold: one moves up, the other moves down; one moves down, the other moves up.

Based on Elliott Wave analysis, Bitcoin appears to have made a new low and is poised for a move up in the coming week.

The Bitcoin Investment Trust is a margin-free instrument that is traded on the OTC and allows traders with a set strategy to take advantage of Bitcoin’s extreme volatility.

Gold appears to be heading into a bearish period which suggests you should sell gold.

Based on my analysis, you should buy Bitcoin and sell gold in the coming week.

Is Silver Ready For Takeoff?

 

 

Summary

All indicators show that gold is poised to make a major move up.

Silver has set a firm bottom and is also ready to burst to the upside – although it may move down first – providing an excellent, historic buying opportunity.

Fundamentally, silver is greatly undervalued given its wide range of uses and possible new use in thinner, more flexible touch screens.

BEAR FLAG = CONTINUATION PATTERN

BEAR FLAG = CONTINUATION PATTERN

Flags and Pennants are short-term continuation patterns that mark a small consolidation before the previous move resumes. These patterns are usually preceded by a sharp advance or decline with heavy volume, and mark a midpoint of the move.

Bitcoin: A Trader’s Dream

Summary

US fund managers and exchanges are rapidly developing products to tap into the fever surrounding digital and crypto assets.

Investment capital continues to flood into Bitcoin.

GBTC provides an excellent vehicle to take advantage of Bitcoin’s volatility but without the margin risks of a futures contract, yet still falling within the realm of well-regulated instruments.

It looks like the Bitcoin phenomenon is not going away anytime soon. If anything, it continues to spread. According to Reuters, US fund managers are ramping up efforts to tap into the fever surrounding digital assets. The latest planned Bitcoin products could deliver some head-turning and stomach-turning price movements if they come to the market.
