Gold Could Shine In 2017 As Inflation Catalysts Kick Into Gear

Frank HolmesFrank Holmes, Contributor

Inflation can be understood as the destruction of a currency’s purchasing power. To combat this, investors, central banks and families have historically stored a portion of their wealth in gold. I call this the “fear trade.”

Gold Correction Completed? SPECIAL REPORT

Patrick MontesDeOca, CEO of the Equity Management Academy (, discussed how to use the proprietary VC Price Momentum Indicator to effectively predict the movement of the gold market.

In a report published on Trader Planet on December 15 based on Fibonacci trend lines, MontesDeOca forecast that “The market would bottom at around $1124. The rally that ensued captured the trend that we anticipated.” In the past couple of days, he published videos on the ema2trade website showing that the upside targets predicted in the report had been completed. “It’s the reason why we recommended to lighten up,” MontesDeOca said.


Now MontesDeOca is waiting to see how the market reacts to the Fibonacci resistance. “Once this resistance is broken,” he explained, “then it becomes support. This resistance, the second level of resistance in the $1220 area, was not able to be broken, but it was tested. We saw that supply came into the market and brought it back down to test the level of support, which was the resistance level.”


Where do we go from here and when do we buy?


MontesDeOca uses a proprietary set of algorithms embodied in the VC Price Momentum Indicator to trade his own fund and to advise a select group of Equity Management Academy subscribers. He said, “We provide very specific criteria for our subscribers” to buy and sell the market.


“In the past three days,” he said, “we have recommended that our subscribers take profits from any short positions and reverse to the long side. The market coming down to these levels and testing these levels of support based on Fibonacci trend lines indicate that the market should be turning from here.”


MontesDeOca is looking for validation of the reversal if the market closes above $1183 on a weekly basis, while a close above $1194 would serve as “a very strong signal.” A daily close above $1191 would be a buy signal, as would a daily price above $1182.


“I’m alerting you to what to be looking for to confirm and validate where the market wants to go,” MontesDeOca said. “I am showing our subscribers how to follow the market by using this very powerful tool, the VC Price Momentum Indicator.”

Gold Fibonacci Targets Completed Short Term SPECIAL REPORT


Patrick MontesDeOca, CEO of the Equity Management Academy, reported today that the short-term targets set out in the Academy’s December 15 gold report have been met and resulted in a move up of almost $100.


The report was published on Trader Planet and on the Academy’s website,

In it, MontesDeOca applied Fibonacci retracement analysis to the gold market.


In mid-December, MontesDeOca said, “Gold had come down pretty close to the level that was indicated by Fibonacci analysis at around $1116.” Gold was trading at $1124 when the report was published and in the report MontesDeOca “recommended very strongly to buy the market, since the market had completed a 78.6% Fibonacci retracement.”


Since then, the market traded through December 27 before it broke out of a narrow range. MontesDeOca explained, “The market is validating that the bottom on December 15 is going to hold.” After that, the market resumed the uptrend. He said, “Once the market broke through a little bit of resistance, the market closed above a trend line resistance of around $1197. . .Since then, we have gone up to meet the upper to mid Fibonacci range of about $1220.”


MontesDeOca said, “Now we are starting to experience a little bit of resistance. We recommended to our subscribers that this might be the level to limit exposure and lock in profits, as we wait for the market to validate a resumption of the upturn at about $1225.” If it does, then the next target is $1257.  


If you bought the market back in December, as MontesDeOca recommended, “We are looking at about a $100 move since then. It is a pretty substantial rally in a short period of time.”


In conclusion, MontesDeOca said, “Our profit objectives are being met. . ..We have done quite well this month.”

Patrick MontesDeOca, CEO of the Equity Management Academy, discussed moves in the silver market this week that were accurately predicted last weekend by the Academy’s proprietary VC Price Momentum Indicator.

In a January 13 Academy report, MontesDeOca set out specific positions to take based on the proprietary VC Price Momentum algorithms. The weekly report on the 13th stated that the gold market, after closing at $1196, was “Bullish.”

MontesDeOca said, “Gold pretty much went through the [report’s] first target of $1211 and up to the second target of $1227.”

Turning to the silver market, MontesDeOca said that on Friday the silver futures contract closed at $16.76. He said, “With the market closing above the 9-day moving average of $16.48, the market is bullish. The algorithm also tells you that if it closes below $16.48, that this signal would be negated and the market would go to neutral.”

Based on the weekly VC Price Momentum Indicator, the weekly average silver price is $16.74. Silver closed above $16.74, which, MontesDeOca said, “Told us the price momentum is bullish.” If silver closes below $16.74, “the energy will change,” negating the bullish signal.

“The market has continued to move up after testing the lows,” MontesDeOca said, “and we’ve seen $16.7450.” The market is moving into the mean weekly price of $16.74.

 In last Saturday’s report he recommended that if his subscribers are long, to take profits at $17.04 to $17.31. The high yesterday was $17.36. MontesDeOca said, “It met the target of $17.31 and we recommended our clients take some profits. 

We published a report on the 11th stating that the weekly upswing had been completed.”

Where are we now?

MontesDeOca said, “We have come down from a high of $17.36 and we’re looking at a substantial correction in the past couple of days.” That movement activated demand. If silver closes above $16.74, it will activate a weekly buy signal. A close above $16.93 would activate a daily buy signal.

MontesDeOca said, “We are beginning to see the market turning, and we recommended at the open this morning that our subscribers cover any short positions that they have.”
