Understanding What The Data Out Today Means for Investors and The Fed

We have weak economic data but Chris Temple thinks it’s important to take a step back and understand what this means in the big picture. Everyone is trying to predict what the Fed will do with this weak economic data but all we have to do is understand that this data has been weak for a long time and it hasn’t mattered.

      The problem, James, with MOABs or similar GPS-guided bombs is that there are Korean satellites that pass over the US every day. Although they were officially classed as communication satellites, they are, in fact, not.
      If either of these contain an EMP weapon, the US will be driven into the dark ages.
      It it also possible that US GPS satellites can be targeted.
      The Chinese now have their independent GPS system.

          I”ve traded in and out of it about a dozen times over the last year and keep telling myself that when I feel the metals are going to turn up for an extend period of time that I’m going to let it ride and keep a core position in place. It is so liquid though, that it is easy to trade, and sometimes I use it fund smaller iliquid trades and then rotate back into it when trimming those.

    Miners being faded hard into the close, relatively speaking. Nothing bullish whatsoever about today’s action. More shorts piling on on every uptick or gap up.

    • On July 14, 2017 at 1:37 pm,
      Excelsior says:

      “Miners being faded hard into the close” ??

      There were tons of stocks still rallying into the close today as well, but overall it was very fairly distributed where most miners gained on the day and simply held the gains.

      There was a minimal dip in the ETFs and funds at the end of the day/week before the weekend but it was negligible in the overall move on the day.

        GDX put in a black candle on a day gold was up $11-12. That’s not bullish action. Certainly not indicative of some major low having being struck. We are going lower into August. The July 10 low is toast. We are going to get a monumental washout before any bounce.

          You put a lot of weight on a single candle, Spanky. Have you ever noticed that those black candles happen only on days when there’s been a gap-up at the opening of the session? Did you also notice that the December low was marked by two black candles?

          The market typically hates gaps so maybe big money is painting them in an effort shake weak hands out of their shares and their convictions. Whatever is going on, black candles haven’t meant much in the recent past.

          • On July 14, 2017 at 4:14 pm,
            Excelsior says:

            Matthew I was thinking the same thing about the over significance being placed on black candles.

            They mark bottoms as often as they mark tops, and many times are just sandwiched in the middle of an uptrend or downtrend. Basically they aren’t very predictive in nature.

            Personally, I place very little importance on black candles because they simply mean that that today’s close was lower than the open, but that the close was higher today than yesterday’s close. If anything they are a mixed signal and more neutral.

            Also, after following candlesticks for years, it is always difficult to put too much emphasis on one candle. The trend or pattern is ultimately more important. Having said that a Hammer or Inverse Hammer or a Doji candle can be significant in marketing a turn in direction, so I place much more importance on those than the color of a candle.

          • On July 14, 2017 at 4:22 pm,
            Excelsior says:

            For example, in the 2nd chart you posted pointing to Dec 19th it was a Doji candle the marked the turn in direction, where there is a long wick and a sliver of a candle where the open and close are in a narrow proximity. This is far more important to watch for than candle color in my experience.

            I agree but would place more significance on them when they don’t follow an upward price gap.

    @Goldfinger – “There is a very good chance that $1204 is a low that will hold for some time in $gold. Price has held up well given a substantial liquidation has taken place. Bullish seasonality should also begin to kick in soon. Gold has a lot of things going for it here including sentiment; many fewer reasons to be bearish given seasonality, CoT positioning, sentiment, etc. ”

    @Goldfinger – “Very constructive $gold CoT report with large specs liquidating more than $4 billion in net notional length. Open interest also increased more than 18,000 contracts which is consistent with the theme that trend followers have been shorting into the decline earlier this month. ”

      Sprott predicts gold will rise by end of 2017, driven by equity correction

      KRISTINE OWRAM – Bloomberg News – Friday, Jul. 14, 2017

      “The next move on gold will be driven by an equity market correction,” Chief Executive Officer Peter Grosskopf said in an interview at Bloomberg headquarters in New York. “It’s a pretty safe bet that if equity markets start to look volatile and dangerous then a lot of money will flow into gold as a hedge to that.”

      I have a feeling commercials loaded back up with shorts this week and especially today.

      Even if we are close in time to a low, a lot of technical damage can be unleashed in just 1 week. The monthly charts are already bearish enough, but one price drops sufficiently below the 20 MMA, the chance of a reversal is slim to none.

      • On July 14, 2017 at 2:14 pm,
        Excelsior says:

        That’s a valid point, but the converse is also true. If there is a short squeeze for all those that loaded up on shorts earlier this week, then it could really move things to the upside. We’ll see how it goes….
