Chris Temple from The National Investor – Tue 10 Oct, 2017

Better Economic Data and Rising Oil – Are These The New Normal?

Today in my conversation with Chris Temple we focus on the better economic data that has been released from a number of countries. Many of the major central banks are pointing to the improving economies (based on recent data) as a reason to take a more hawkish monetary stance. But is this the right thing to do?

We also comment on the move up in oil today, back above $50/barrel. How did the hurricanes impact this move and what would a higher oil price mean for the economic growth mentioned above?

    Bad divergence between metal and miners today. Silver miners especially look terrible. Circling the toilet bowl before the final flush.

      TSX-listed stocks gapped up into Bollinger band resistance today due to yesterday’s holiday so I wouldn’t read much into the action.

      Based on ZJG, the gap is still not completely filled:

        Meanwhile, the Russell 2000 is about to poke a hole in the ozone layer soon. As soon as the yen lets go (and it will), the US markets are going to go ballistic. Any and all divergences will work themselves out bullishly, the exact opposite of the PMs and miners.

            I’m not selling my silver stocks either. Silver will go to 100 or 200 one day and I want to be on that train to freedom. Everyone up on the peace train! Glide on peace train…

            $100? In 1000 years maybe. No way the Fed and BoJ will ever let metals get that high. Metals are completely under Yellen’s thumb. Gold has a date with its 200 month MA, at which point it will waffle around that level for the next 20 years. Silver will break well below its 200 month MA and then stay between $10 and $15 for 20 years.

            You’re a hoot, Spanky. Fantastic action in the miners, and it only takes a single down day for you to start up again!

            The charts are fractal in nature. If you can learn to see the upturn in the short term that has just occurred, you’d also be able to see that in the big picture we are in a cyclical bull. Even if you don’t want to trade short-term swings, analyzing intraday charts is great for learning technical analysis that applies on all time scales.

            Wake me when silver cracks $18 (that’s USD not pesos). I think it is going to be a very long nap, might even turn into a dirt nap for me by the time it sees $18 again.

            I’d also again highly recommend Rick Ackerman’s free webinar. Even just the glimpse of his techniques that he offers is very useful for determining in which direction the impulse lies. Just for it’s illustration of the importance of prior peaks makes this webinar well worth its while.

            Black candle notwithstanding, this is not a bearish short term chart. It’s taking out the 200 day moving average, and by the indicators it has room to run still.


            Sure, the silver miners are lagging the gold miners. But that’s the price you pay for silver’s potential–an extra serving or two of suffering. They’ll play catch-up if gold miners accelerate to the upside.

            Actually, its $silver’s candle that I am more interested in seeing. They are still trying to get a handle on it at stockcharts and it sometimes changes later in the evening (when they get the data sorted out?).

    I imagine $gold is likely going to have a big ‘ole black candle on the daily chart today. That is never a good sign and usually presages continued weakness, if not a dramatic drop in the near future.

            JohnK – I wish we had some kind of Star Trek futuristic way to travel back in time to the end of 2015 when the Bear market in the metals was just wrapping up and the PMs were getting ready to kick off their new bull market in early 2016.

            It would be fun to revisit Jr Silver stocks like IPT & EXN crushing the returns of the over-hyped and bloated FANG stocks like AMZN the last 2 years. (hahaha)

            What makes no sens is why any investors would want to make less than 1 bagger in a behemoth like AMZN when investors could have made 9-10 baggers in a number of the Silver Jrs in the first half of 2016? It would take a decade to make that in AMZN. (lol)

            Wise investors have repositioned in these Jr Silver & Gold miners after the summer doldrums and are getting ready to continue to enjoy the next impulse leg higher in the Bull Market. Fun Times!

            I am getting closer to understanding the movements in the futures and what was driving Gold in years past.
            Right now I am focusing on Lithium and Zinc stocks.I no longer try predict movements of Gold and Silver.
            I just go where the data sends me.
            That being said I would be surprised to see any significant move in the precious metals until the ECB and the JCB have their next meetings.

            JohnK – I watch the underlying commodity prices of each sector to see where things are on the charts, but really drill down into each company individually as they are all on their own paths.

            Yes, Zinc & Lithium are exciting markets as well, and I have a number of stocks in those sectors as well. Good luck to you in your investments. Cheers!

            Yes spanky….. A silver Jr stock like IPT “has been” crushing the returns of even the bloated FANG stocks like AMZN the last 2 years since the precious metals started their bull run.

            You may also want to note (since I know you love charts) that EXN has trounced the returns of Amazon over the last 2 years as well.
