August 23, 2019

Chris Kimble, Founder of Kimble Charting Solutions, shares 5 charts with us, all posted below. We first revisit a chart shared last interview asking for your thoughts on a trading strategy. We also share another chart and ask for your thoughts on how you would trade it. The final three charts focus on gold and relate the USD chart to possible moves and wrap it up with the S&P chart.

How would you trade this?

      I’m really wondering if the bullion banksters have run out of ammunition. Today’s COT WAS ONLY MODESTLY NEGATIVE IN COMPARISON TO THE LAST NUMBER OF WEEKS. WE will see early next week

        Aug 23, 2019 23:43 PM

        I’m just glad that I never act on the COT numbers. A big change is clearly underway.

          Aug 24, 2019 24:28 AM

          Agreed Matthew. I don’t think I’ve ever placed a trade based on COT numbers.

          Just look at the price action in the underlying commodity for the macro trend, and then look at the individual price action in the stock you are trading.

    Aug 23, 2019 23:36 AM

    Replying to @realDonaldTrump
    ….your companies HOME and making your products in the USA. I will be responding to China’s Tariffs this afternoon. This is a GREAT opportunity for the United States. Also, I am ordering all carriers, including Fed Ex, Amazon, UPS and the Post Office, to SEARCH FOR & REFUSE,….

    Aug 23, 2019 23:42 AM

    This should be interesting…………CNN hires……..McCabe………..
    DEEP STAte really concerned now……trash talking is going to get better….

    Aug 23, 2019 23:05 PM

    My guess Hedge Funds are having an emergence meeting as I am typing…….
    “where do we get this thing called gold”………….lol 🙂

      Aug 23, 2019 23:26 PM

      I bet many of them are shorting it because they don’t have the foggiest idea why it’s moving.

        Aug 23, 2019 23:30 PM

        Ditto………..I bet you are correct…., no , I know you are correct….. 🙂

          Aug 24, 2019 24:31 AM

          Bingo. Most Hedge Funds are clueless about Gold’s role or why the price is rising and likely think they are going to do well shorting it. Boy due they have a rude awakeing coming.

            Aug 24, 2019 24:35 AM

            …. and then there’s JP Morgan, one of the big boy banks, starting to get it…..

            — willem middelkoop @wmiddelkoop

            “JP Morgan ‘recommends its clients to change their gold hodlings from 0 to 5 %’ and strongly ‘reduce dollar holdings’ in anticipation of (planned?!) dollar devaluation.”

            Is the dollar’s “exorbitant privilege” coming to an end?

            Craig Cohen – FX, Commodities and Rates Strategist – Jul 10, 2019

            “In other words, in the coming decades we think the world economy will transition from U.S. and USD dominance toward a system where Asia wields greater power. In currency space, this means the USD will likely lose value compared to a basket of other currencies, including precious commodities like gold.”

    Thanks Cory for a good listen. Chris always gets one to thinking.
    Love where the markets are pointing today thanks in part to the spoiled Gerber baby in the White House. He’s had a terrific week with the Greenland thing and then his Friday tweets pushing the Chinese a bit further…..He’s on his way to Europe and I’m counting on him to royally screw that meeting up, as is his penchant. Next week ought to really show folks where they ought to have their funds! Go trump!!

      Aug 23, 2019 23:40 PM

      Oh, come on SD………Trump is just getting started……….
      Wait till he hears McCabe, was hired by CNN……..
      The Shadow govt. is just now kicking in……..

      Aug 23, 2019 23:44 PM

      This bull market in gold is due to the Fed. Trump’s antics are a sideshow.

        Aug 23, 2019 23:49 PM

        Trump might arrest the FED………for causing the turmoil….. 🙂

          Aug 23, 2019 23:04 PM

          More important …..might be Trump stopping the drugs….
          there are things happening which most are not keeping up on….

            Aug 23, 2019 23:08 PM

            Think drugs……Hilly Billy, Gates, Buffit, Mueller, Barr…….Awan Contra…..

            Aug 23, 2019 23:31 PM

            Epstein , was just a side show…….some agency caught…..leading to bigger exposure of the entire system……starting way back to 1947 and the CIA….lot of things will be uncovered in the next few months……Like the involvement of some phony insiders, sucking the system dry……and hanging the American Tax sheep out to dry…..

            Aug 23, 2019 23:39 PM

            Trump tweet…….NOTICE It SAYS…….”or anywhere else”
            He also ordered “all carriers, including Fed Ex, Amazon, UPS and the Post Office, to SEARCH FOR & REFUSE, all deliveries of Fentanyl from China (or anywhere else!).

        Aug 23, 2019 23:55 PM

        Agree with you Matthew on the gold market. I was primarily talking of the conventionals………I’ve got a bet on SSOX.

        Aug 23, 2019 23:14 PM

        GO BBBXF &. SGSVF

          Aug 23, 2019 23:06 PM

          I’m not talking about the Fed directly manipulating gold. This bull market has been coming for a very long time and it’s due to the cumulative effects of everything the Fed does.
          The Fed’s paper system is unsound and the primary reason for the ever-shrinking value of the dollar. The rising POG just reflects the pricing-in of all that the Fed has done, most recently, a lot of QE.

    Aug 23, 2019 23:39 PM

    At this moment it looks like things aren’t going to narrow the losses at the close. Seems like with 20 minutes to go, the plunge protection team is getting swamped! Should help those weekly charts a bunch.

    Aug 23, 2019 23:46 PM

    Dang Good Day for GOLD>…………….UP big on a Friday……
    Sunday night should be interesting, when China wakes up and see their factories are going to be shuttered…….

    Aug 23, 2019 23:16 PM
      Aug 23, 2019 23:24 PM

      Might upset the drug runners…….fed printing the money going to Iran, payoff….dollars are going to shake thing up a little……there is a lot going on right now…..
      Lot of greenback gone missing ……$21 Trillion and counting…….

        Aug 23, 2019 23:49 PM

        Just remember , these same characters want YOUR GOLD>>>>>>>>>

    Aug 23, 2019 23:41 PM

    I think it was over a month ago that I told Ozibatla that gold would probably reach at least 1560 before correcting and now that number will probably be achieved very soon.
    Based on weekly closes, we now have a new high (by a $14 margin)…

      Aug 23, 2019 23:39 PM

      I recall this matthew. And yes I think you maybe right, gold will be at the $1560 area in the forseeable future. Just a matter of when specifically? I personally would like another week or so of consolidation. This latest period of “backing and filling” is a nice development… Especially at this latest area of resistance. Such a strong finish to the week for gold and silver on the back of fed comments, I will be interested to see if we can get some follow through buying on Monday to take out August high and another 6 year high???

      + 13.64 Go JAG!

    Big drop on a Friday, gives people a long time to think how bad it is…… 🙂

    Aug 23, 2019 23:02 PM

    This breakout could cause a large move higher and make the current level the new floor:

      Aug 23, 2019 23:40 PM

      Matthew…..That fork is dead…..Long live the fork……………………………….

        Aug 23, 2019 23:56 PM

        Which one? It poked through two! 🧐

        Aug 24, 2019 24:13 AM

        The fork is in the road, somebody dropped it there, and I took a picture of it. What had been fake is now real. LOL! DT

    Aug 23, 2019 23:26 PM

    Technically, Equinox looks strong.

      Aug 24, 2019 24:32 AM

      Yes sir! EQX on the move. They just rolled back their share count so they can get a US listing on the big board. This will allow them to be included in more funds and ETFs.

      Solid company & team.

    Aug 23, 2019 23:49 PM

    DNC…….going to Mexico for funding………..drug money backing….go to the gangs..before you go to jail…….. 🙂

      Aug 23, 2019 23:34 PM

      Since when did CHINA become the big dog in the block? Maybe one of their man-made islands needs to mysteriously sink due to climate change

    Aug 23, 2019 23:40 PM

    Of course, that has nothing to do with Obama buying beachfront property on Marta’s Vinyard. Greetings from Edgertown!!
