  • Treasury Long Bond Bulls Celebrate This Week's Key Gains [View article]
    Thank you for your comment, Gunzo, as a point of clarity.

    Regarding the LEI, the article is simply citing standard fundamental logic already widely associated with the Conference Board LEI report, and not making any assertion of its own. The article is simply implying that if you hold the conclusion on a fundamental basis that the demand for money might increase because economic activity might increase as suggested by the report's value, this logic might extend further to projecting that an eventual impact on the bond market may be on the way as well. All these are mights, contextual and arguable fundamental analysis mights. Ones that are going on in the financial press and seemingly at issue right now. The article actually does not even address the direction of such an impact itself, and purposefully so, which you, apparently having chosen one, apply to the article as an assertion. In fact, the article leaves this to the further fundamental chatter now going in the press, and simply cites the issue, intending to present it as an additional yet also potentially opposite weight to what some might argue as given fundamental economic impact on the long bond associated with the recent Fed statements. I'm sorry this was not clear to you in the article. The LEI is the one fundamental cited of the three in the article that I personally tend to agree would countervail increased bond prices in accordance with standard macroeconomic logic and reasoning, hence my silence on the directional impact, and the emphasis on the ceteris parabus clause. And I thought this obvious to any student of the bond market. The three fundamentals are simply cited as concomitant occurrences of last week to its actual market action forward.

    The key interest of the article is in highlighting the currently active cyclical technicals which may also seem to have potential impact on long bond market's recent price action, and these technicals apparent directional bias forward, at a critical technical resistance level, all within a technical analysis of present and historical bond market price action. Note the direction of today's price action as well.

    Thanks for helping to bring these points of clarity to the forum.

  • Long Bond Treasury Cycles, Current Price Resistance And Fed Chairman Yellen's Comment Impact [View article]
    Hi Andysud. Thank you for your question.

    An echovector is an advanced cyclical price vector and price momentum indicator used within the fields of mathematical economics and financial technical analysis. It measures both a securities' cyclical length and its price momentum and coordinates them between predetermined and associated times and conditions. You can find more on the echovector's definition, its construction, its near-term trading implications, and its powerful utility in security position management in several places (along with information on related and corresponding echovector pivot points). Besides just googling echovector and/or echovector pivot points, I would suggest starting your research into the echovector by looking at several pages found at echovector info. http://bit.ly/1gwiJO0 provides good background and definitional information, as well as information on how to use an echovector and echovector pivot points in your forecasting and trading. http://bit.ly/1gwiPoM will actually show you how to construct a simple echovector on your own price chart.

    Good luck in your research on the echovector. The echovector and echovector pivot points are powerful forecasting and market timing tools and utilities, especially for day-traders and swing-traders.

    And thanks again for your question.

  • The Bull Market's 5th Anniversary [View article]
    Good article and valuable information. Thanks, Charles.

    Perhaps a review of shorter-term history covering the last 20 years might give us important new insight into where the market may go from here. There have been dramatic structural changes in the market these years, and an explosion in participation in the age of the internet. Broad participation across the globe is expanding. This evolution in structure, participation and technique lends itself strongly to an EchoVector Analysis of market prices within the overall advancement of computer supported analysis and black box investing approaches.

    For an insightful illustration and a good look at an EchoVector Market Momentum Indicator for the last three US Presidential Administrations see " The Stock Market Melt-Up And The Political Economic Cycle" at http://bit.ly/1dzeGOr

    Thanks again, Charles.

  • Precious Metals And Energy Should Be Safest Havens From War With Syria And Iran [View article]
    Thank you for your article.

    For an additional recent and refreshingly accurate EchoVector Analysis perspective on what is presently moving the gold market, see "Today Is An Important Day For Gold" published Friday at http://bit.ly/14LVJny. This article helps to illustrate gold's current potential price vulnerability, as well as potential upside price possibility, based on the GLD ETF at $135, going forward from here into September.

    Note that Friday's price action did not strengthen the upside price movement argument. Perhaps now, as was Friday, is a good time for an advanced straddle in gold.

    Thanks again for your article. And for its particular analysis and perspective.

  • What Next For Gold And Silver After A 2 Month Rally? [View article]
    Thank you for your article.

    Your statement that "In short, the next move for gold and silver could as easily be up as down." would seem well-timed.

    For a recent and refreshingly accurate technical analysis perspective on what is moving the gold market that would concur with your view as of this past Friday morning, see "Today Is An Important Day For Gold" published Friday at http://bit.ly/14LVJny

    It helps to illustrate gold's potential current price vulnerability, as well as potential upside price possibility, on the GLD ETF at $135 going forward, from an EchoVector Analysis perspective.

    However, Friday's price action did not strengthen the upside price move argument.

    Thanks again for your article, and for its potentially timely alert as well.

    Perhaps now is still, as was Friday, a good time for an advanced straddle in gold.

  • Gold And SIlver Prices Will Continue To Rally In September And October [View article]
    Thank you for your article. The precious metals bulls will likely cheer you on.

    For balanced, accurate and substantive technical analysis timing perspectives as well on recent gold and silver price action forecasting that forecasted this summer's price bottoms, and subsequent upside action and breakouts, and has also presented outlooks on gold and silver for September and October, also see "Will Silver's Upside Price Action Continue?" at http://bit.ly/14LVIQh and "Today Is An Important Day For Gold" at http://bit.ly/14LVJny.

    Recognizing you have made clear your analysis is fundamentally inspired, one still does need to go back beyond the 2-Year Congressional Cycle at this point to find any significant technical support for a call of a rally into October for this year. More current technical's tend to support more likely weakness soon, or in mid-September. So caution may be prudent. Perhaps advanced straddling from current prices may be a wise positioning strategy.

    Thanks again for your article; your outlook may yet prove correct.

    Thank you for your comment, JMstocks75. Very insightful. I've been writing for years about this price phenomena that you have mentioned here. See a recent article of mine mentioning it yet again titled "Could This Be A Correction That's Coming? An EchoVector Pivot Point Perspective" at http://bit.ly/17jMnzv published August 7TH, referencing the phenomena's possible occurrence again this year.

    And for an update on today's, Wednesday's, specific day-trading and swing-trading market action within this general echovector analysis and perspective, see yesterday's post (and its reiteration today) titled "Today's Tomorrow Quarterly EchoVector Chart Perspective: Update and Analysis" at direct link http://bit.ly/1dmW9Fr by "The EchoVector Market Price Pivots Forecaster Newsletter". The Newsletter is free online.

    Again, thanks for your comment, and its possible relevance and trading implications going forward into the next several months.
