Gold and Oil Shine Compared to the SP500

Wednesday August 4th
Commodities have been shining recently as the US Dollar loses its luster for investors. Also the weakening dollar has helped boost equities as a lower US dollar helps the large multi national companies. This report is a quick follow up from the Weekend report showing what the odds were favoring which was higher gold, oil and sp500. As of today each investment is unfolding as planned, once candle at a time.

GLD – Gold ETF Trading

In my last report I pointed out how gold needed to break through its down trendline, the MACD had to crossover and then we needed to wait for a pullback which ends with a reversal candle to the upside. It seems gold is working its way through that process now.

Mid-Week US Dollar, Oil, Gold and SP500 Report

It’s been another strong week for equities but are stocks and commodities about to get hit with some selling pressure?

I have put together a short video coving all of these investments but here is my Coles Note Version:

US Dollar:
The Dollar is way oversold and looking ready for a multi day bounce. This will put pressure stocks and commodities.

Crude Oil:
Oil is trading at resistance and with the Fed minutes reported today saying they are some what concerned about the economy still this pulled oil down late in the day. Also if the US Dollar bounces it will add downward pressure to oil.

Are Commodities and the Dow Index Dead?

It was a heart pounding week on Wall Street as traders and investors locked in profits during 2010’s first round of earnings season. While it is normal to see selling of shares after good news hits the market, last weeks melt down was over exaggerated and for good reasons.

In short, we expected good earnings and that is why the markets have been crawling higher the past couple months (buy on rumor, sell on news). But what made last weeks sell off so strong was the fact the market was way overbought on the short term time frame and looking ready for a correction already. So we saw twice the selling pressure crammed into one week.

Looking back at a 12 year chart of the Dow Jones Industrial Average we can see the market is now trading at a major resistance level. There are two scenarios the market will likely follow in the coming 12 months. And it could take a year for each of these scenarios to unfold.

SP500 & Dow Intraday Charts & Futures Prices at Their Best

March 26, 2010
The market gapped higher this morning after yesterdays heavy selling. At this time the market (metals and indexes) are trading at resistance on light volume. This tells me people are a little spooked from yesterday and just do not want to buy at these lofty prices.

Stock Market Training Education

I am trying to provide you with more insight and trading tips/education because I know many of you enjoy it. So here is something some of you may find interesting…

Over the years I have found several things which happen repeatedly in the market. I always found it interesting that in an uptrend the market/commodity or stock tends to gap lower at the open the next day. And during a down trend the market tends to gap higher at the open.

Gold, Silver, Oil, Natural Gas ETF Trading

October 25th, 2009

The past week in gold, silver, oil, natural gas and the broad market wasn’t anything to write home about. We are seeing controlled profit taking which is making the market choppy. Many traders are getting very bearish on the market which is a good thing in my opinion. According to my market internals, sentiment and volume analysis we should get a shake out (sharp dip) which would make traders exit their positions before the market continues higher.

Some trader’s say we are in a bull market, others say we are in a major bear market. Either way the trend is up on the daily and weekly charts and companies are making money. Buying on over sold dips has been very profitable this year. Until I see things drastically change, this is my strategy for the broad market.

Lets take a look at the commodity sector.
