Fear cycles still strong into Tuesday

FOR MONDAY: (4/17) Markets are closed on Friday but economic cycles continue to come out. Fear cycles are still strong into Tuesday so we suspect that whatever happens over the weekend, it won’t be roses and lollypops. Sometimes extreme moves on Sunday night have no place to go by early Monday and if we get…

Gold continues to look higher

FOR THURSDAY: (4/13) World political and tension cycles are still strong into Thursday and saber-rattling is escalating with China on the border and the North Korean President having a press conference at 6:20 am to demonstrate something. Who wants to be long dollars in this scenario? We looked at next week and gold continues to…

World political and tension cycles still strong into Wednesday

FOR WEDNESDAY: (4/12) World political and tension cycles are still strong into Wednesday and Wednesday night but may lift late in the week. We looked at cycles for North Korea and its President and he could easily not survive world pressures from China and the US this summer but there’s a lot of time until…

Stocks mostly lower into Wednesday

FOR MONDAY: (4/10) These weekend breaks with saber-rattling are a bit unnerving, as Russia sends ships to the area and rhetoric flies. Cycles into April 13-14 do have more war/aggressive energy than the following week so getting through this week will be important but an underlying peace cycle may prevent anything series through late May….

Wild week continues

FOR THURSDAY: (4/6) We told you this would be a wild week and so far it’s living up to its billing and not over yet and should get wilder as we move into Friday. At this point we had some clear reversals on Wednesday but now need to get 62% retracements of them to get…

Stocks, gold still look higher

FOR WEDNESDAY: (4/5) Trade waiting on FOMC minutes. Stocks and gold still look higher and crude isn’t done until 5150 comes in and dollar needs 101. There should be a climax in pattern completions within a few days and the trick will be when will China news come out of the meeting on Friday and…

Employment-report week often a congestive mess

FOR TUESDAY: (4/4) Employment-report week is often a congestive mess with wild swings and congestion triangle patterns. It makes trading erratic and tricky and you have to take the money quickly on short swings and jaunts. We don’t want to take too much home overnight with crazy cycles. Today’s first surprise was the St. Petersburg’s…

Intense week ahead for markets

FOR MONDAY: (4/3) We’re moving into a potentially intense week politically and could spill over into the markets. On the calendar is a Trump meeting with China, and we have to think that N. Korean games could heat up this week. Spring cycles suggest a repeat of the June cycle that led to the trigger…

Most cycles seem strong on Friday

FOR FRIDAY: (3/31) Many of our patterns failed to manifest for secondary highs as month-end profit-taking on gold and T-notes and long euros continued to hit early. Most of the cycles seem strong on Friday and we would need really bearish news to get a major breakdown, although we always think of profit-taking setting in…

Cycle highs for gold on Thursday

FOR THURSDAY: (3/30) A string of inside days didn’t reveal much. We continue to suggest cycle highs for gold on Thursday and cycle lows for the dollar and stocks, and how much they fall will be key. Month-end position squaring by funds will hit by Friday and be a factor. We do want to sell…
