So do we have a Phase 1 trade deal or not? Also UK election comments.

December 13, 2019

Chris Temple joins me to recap the news overnight of a possible signing of the Phase 1 trade deal and push back of the December 15th tariffs. Depending on what headlines you read you might have thought that a deal was signed. However no deal has been signed and markets are all over the place. We also touch on the UK election which make a Brexit much more likely in the near term.

    Boris is never a whole hearted Brexiteer. But he is politically savvy, and does believe in strong ties to the British Commonwealth, which were damaged on UK’s entry to the EU.

    The UK is a nation of shopkeepers or at least shopkeeper mentality. They do trade internationally much above their population would suggest, because the UK has radically changed in the last 50 years to a multi-ethnic nation.

    The silver stock volume spiked last week in a way that was very similar to what we saw in mid-2011. Moreover, last week’s session was a clear shooting star reversal candlestick. These candlesticks are powerful bearish signals if they are accompanied by big volume. And that’s exactly what we saw. When we exited our long positions and entered short ones close to last week’s high, the outlook was already bearish, but seeing this kind of powerful confirmation of the reversal in silver stocks makes this change even more justified.

    Thats the opinion of the Silver Phoenix 500

    A convincing reversal for IPT; check out the huge volume of the last two weeks:

        I would say IPT has a little further to run but don’t see it taking out its’ high of this summer/fall. In fact, the odds are it falls back into the lower part of its’ range in January. However, it’s forming a higher trading range which is a positive.

          Despite the last two left-translated cycles and Bollinger Band resistance (.45 monthly and .47 weekly), I see it taking out .51 no later than January.
          As a group, the silver stocks put in their multi-year (post-2016) low about 8 months after the gold stocks so they are well behind in presenting a more bullish technical picture and the more speculative juniors are even further behind. But the action in SIL and SILJ since mid October shows that the silver stocks are shaping up very well and the very recent action in IPT shows that it is not excluded from this bullish development. The huge volume of the last two weeks is very unlikely to be the result of dumb money buying considering the current sentiment and the price drop since early August.

    I was going to ask you about IPT earlier. Glad you brought it up. Also, check out the weekly bar on Metalla Resources.
