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.
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.”

“We have clear signals,” MontesDeOca said, “of potentially a truly remarkable trade.”
MontesDeOca tracks the 9-day moving average for short-term trend identification. The market, he said, has moved above that average, “giving us a very clear buy signal.”
Reinforcing that trend is the use of Fibonacci numbers. “We use the Fibonacci retracement from the high back on August 29 to the recent low on December 19, and what we see is once again a trending pattern that projects the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement to be at $10.62, 38.2% is at $14.97, the 50% target is $18.49, a 61% retracement is $22.01 and a 78.6% retracement is $27.02.” With the market currently trading at about $6.75, MontesDeOca said, “This is just the beginning of what appears to be a really exciting move.”
Turning to possible resistance levels, MontesDeOca used Fibonacci fan lines to “get a pretty good indication of where the resistance levels are in relation to the retracement,” which is at about $14.97. He predicted some resistance at $13.21 and up to about $17. The upper end of that resistance is at $20.74.
“My objective,” MontesDeOca said, “is approximately the 50% to 61% retracement of $18.49 to $22.01. These are the targets we are looking at for the next three to six months. We are looking at a major, major breakout in JNUG.”
