  • Gold To "Sweep" $1500 Level 0 comments

    When we look at our Risk Tolerance Threshold Ratio for gold - below -we see that even when we count the Grand Pattern, which we do not consider a "tradable" pattern because it is so long-term - call it an investment pattern - we have the majority of patterns down. It is ominous that the most influential pattern from the trader's perspective - the Day to Day Pattern - has remained stubbornly lower since early November.

    Gold Futures Jan, 4th, 2013
    M Grand Up
    W Primary Up
    W S-primary Down
    D Secondary Up 1620
    240 Day to Day Down
    60 Micro Down
    15 Micro Down

    Our 2013 thesis for commodities is a return to two-way trade, which our Risk Tolerance Threshold Ratio for Gold and the weekly chart confirm by way of a lower high in 2012 to the all time high in 2011 - see Figure 1.

    What this means for gold investors is more patience. What this means for traders and investors, who wish to add gold, again patience, and buying weakness, i.e.: going against the grain for trend traders. If the 1,620 level does not hold we would look for a sweep of the 1,500 level to knock out long-term holders and set-up the next intermediate-term bull leg.

    Trading is a risky endeavor and not suitable for all investors!
