Short Term Update:

 

Gold was lower this week, as wave *i* ended, and we are now falling in wave *ii*.

 

In Friday’s day session, gold was higher reaching a high of 1191.00.

 

We can now conclude that all of wave *i* ended at the 1218.90 high, and that we are now falling in our expected wave *ii* correction.

 

We do note that gold has broken above the down trend line connecting 1217.50, 1207.40, 1202.30, 1198.00, and 1185.40, which could suggest that all of wave *ii* is complete at the 1179.50 low. This is still above our 50{6662cb326f536db879050e93fbe8de36d93608a2a48b01f600643f4328fc39a1} retracement level.

 

The highest probability trades in a corrective wave, occur when we see at least a 3 wave pattern on the Intraday/Daily Chart, and we at least reach our minimum retracement levels, which in this case, would be the 1172 area. When we fail to reach our minimum retracement levels within the first 3 wave pattern, it usually suggests that the correction could become more complex.

 

Our 50 to 61.8{6662cb326f536db879050e93fbe8de36d93608a2a48b01f600643f4328fc39a1} retracement levels for the end of wave *ii* are shown on the Daily Gold Chart, and are as follows:

50{6662cb326f536db879050e93fbe8de36d93608a2a48b01f600643f4328fc39a1} = 1171.60;

61.8{6662cb326f536db879050e93fbe8de36d93608a2a48b01f600643f4328fc39a1} = 1160.40.

 

Our current count for all of wave -iii- is:

.i.:

*i* = 1218.90;

*ii* = 1179.50, if complete, but we expect further weakness.

*iii* rally after wave *ii* ends. We will provide our first projections for the end of wave *ii* when we are sure that wave *ii* is complete.

 

Longer Term Update:

 

Gold looks to have completed its wave -ii- correction, at the 1124.30 low, and we are now rallying in the early stages of wave -iii-. We have updated the Weekly Gold Chart showing our projections for the end of wave -iii-.

 

Our first and second projections for the end of wave -iii- is:

-iii-=1.618-i-=1661.80;

-iii-=2.618-i-=1993.70.

 

Active Trading Positions: Long 30 positions, with puts at 1250.00!

 

Silver:

 

Daily Silver Chart: http://stockcharts.com/h-sc/ui?s=$SILVER&p=D&yr=1&mn=8&dy=0&id=p56845162743&a=465799974&listNum=2

 

Short Term Update:

 

Silver was higher this week, as wave ^i^ ended at the 17.39 high, and we are now correcting in wave ^ii^. The current low for wave ^ii^ is 16.64, which is still a bit short of our 50{6662cb326f536db879050e93fbe8de36d93608a2a48b01f600643f4328fc39a1} retracement level, which is 16.52.

 

In Friday’s day session, silver was sharply higher reaching a high of 17.26.

 

We can now conclude that all of wave ^i^ of .i. of -iii- is complete at the 17.36 high, and we are now falling in our expected wave ^ii^ correction, as shown on the Daily Silver Chart.

 

As with our comments on gold, it might be possible that all of wave ^ii^ is complete at the 16.64 low. It is also possible, that wave ^ii^ is becoming more complex. 

 

Our retracement levels for all of wave ^ii^ are:

50{6662cb326f536db879050e93fbe8de36d93608a2a48b01f600643f4328fc39a1} = 16.52;

61.8{6662cb326f536db879050e93fbe8de36d93608a2a48b01f600643f4328fc39a1} = 16.32.

 

Our current count for all of wave -iii- is:

^i^ = 17.36;

^ii^ = 16.64, if complete, but we believe it is still not complete.

^iii^ rally after wave ^ii^ ends. We will provide our projections for the end of wave ^iii^ when we are sure that wave ^ii^ is complete.

 

Long Term Update:

 

Our first and second projections for the end of wave -iii- are:

-iii-=1.618-i-=27.91;

-iii-=2.618-i-=35.47.

 

We completed all of wave III at 49.00 in 1980, and all of wave IV at 3.55 in 1993.

 

We are now working on wave V, and within wave V, we have the following count:

1 = 49.82;

2 = 13.67. Note: Wave 2 retraced 78.6{6662cb326f536db879050e93fbe8de36d93608a2a48b01f600643f4328fc39a1} of the entire wave 1 rally.

3 rally has now begun.

 

Active Trading Positions: Long risking to 15.67!

 

Crude:

 

Daily Crude Chart: https://stockcharts.com/h-sc/ui?s=$WTIC&p=D&yr=1&mn=3&dy=0&id=p14014561822&a=439269741&listNum=2

 

Weekly Suncor Chart: https://stockcharts.com/h-sc/ui?s=SU&p=W&yr=8&mn=7&dy=0&id=p70680970179&a=406131767&listNum=2

 

Short Term Update:

 

Crude traded sideways for most of the past week, as we continued to work on our wave $b$ bearish triangle formation.

 

In Friday’s day’s session, crude was lower reaching a low of 52.62.

 

As you can see on the Daily Crude Chart, we are showing a 3 wave corrective pattern within wave ^ii^, which we think is NOT complete.

 

We have now completed the minimum requirements for our wave $b$ bearish triangle, but it looks like it might be extending and expanding, as triangles usually do. It could also be complete at the 54.06 high.

 

A rally above the 55.24 high would eliminate this bearish wave $b$ triangle. Upon completion of our wave $b$ triangle, we expect one more drop in wave $c$ to complete all of wave ^ii^.

 

Retracement levels for all of wave ^ii^ are:

50{6662cb326f536db879050e93fbe8de36d93608a2a48b01f600643f4328fc39a1} = 48.36;

61.8{6662cb326f536db879050e93fbe8de36d93608a2a48b01f600643f4328fc39a1} = 46.90.

 

Our updated count for all of wave .iii. is now:

*i* = 49.36;

*ii*:

^a^ = 43.06;

^b^ = 52.20;

^c^ = 42.20, to complete all of wave *ii*;

*iii*:

^i^ = 54.51;

^ii^:

$a$ = 49.95;

$b$ triangle = 54.06, if complete;

$c$ drop to come after wave $b$ ends, to complete all of wave ^ii^, with a minimum target of 49.95;

^iii^ rally is next after wave ^ii^ ends, and we will provide those projections when we believe that all of wave ^ii^ is complete.

 

Some other projections:

.iii. = 1.618.i. = 80.34;

*iii* = 2.618*i* = 68.83.

 

Suncor:

 

Wave .v. and all of wave -i- may now be complete at the 33.79 high. If that is the case, then we should now expect a wave -ii- correction that retraces between 50 to 61.8{6662cb326f536db879050e93fbe8de36d93608a2a48b01f600643f4328fc39a1} of the entire wave -i- rally. We will provide those retracement levels when we are sure that wave -i- is complete.  

 

Long Term Update:

 

We are now working on the assumption that a major low in wave b of B in crude was reached at the 26.05 low. If this assumption is correct, then crude is now heading sharply higher, at least back to the all-time high of 147.27.

 

Active Trading Positions: Long crude with 48.00 puts as stops, and long Suncor, and we plan to add at 46.80!

 

S&P: 

 

Daily SP500 Chart:  https://stockcharts.com/h-sc/ui?s=$SPX&p=D&yr=1&mn=11&dy=0&id=p23570242349&a=440381343&listNum=2

 

Short Term Update:

 

The S&P was higher this past week, as we made several all-time new highs.

 

In Friday’s day session, the S&P was a little lower.

 

The S&P is now reached, and slightly exceeded our projected target, and we are now looking for a significant drop in wave -iv- to begin very soon.

 

The final top in the S&P is still likely to occur early in 2017.

 

Long Term Update:

 

Wave (v) has become a diagonal triangle. We completed all of wave .c. of -iii- at the 2282.10 high. Upon completion of wave -iii-, we expect a wave -iv- drop followed by a wave -v- rally.

 

Active Trading Positions: Short with 2280 calls as stops!

 

USDX:

 

Daily USDX Chart: https://stockcharts.com/h-sc/ui?s=$USD&p=D&yr=1&mn=2&dy=0&id=p32844610873&a=444333428&listNum=2

 

Short Term Update:

 

The USDX was higher this week.

 

In Friday’s day session, the USDX was flat. We still expect further downside in this market.

 

If our current analysis is correct, we should see the USDX fall in the continuation of our wave ^iii^ of *iii*.  A drop to 99.25 seems likely now.

 

Our current count for wave (c) and the start of iii is:

-i- = 99.09;

-ii- = 97.56;

-iii- = 101.97;

-iv- = 99.24;

-v-:

*i* = 101.77;

*ii* = 100.77;

*iii* = 103.57;

*iv*= 102.06;

*v*= 103.81, to complete all of wave -v-, our third wave (c), and all of wave ii.

iii:

.i.:

*i* = 101.30;

*ii* = 102.96;

*iii*:

^i^ = 100.70;

^ii^ = 101.71;

^iii^ is now underway. Our first projection for the end of wave ^iii^ is: ^iii^=1.618^i^=97.04.

 

Projections for wave *iii* are:

*iii*=1.618*i*=98.88;

*iii*=2.618*i*=96.36.

 

Long Term Trading Update:

 

We have now satisfied the minimum requirements for that triple 3 wave pattern, and it looks like all of wave ii ended at the 103.81 high. We are now falling in wave iii.

 

Active Trading Positions: Short at 102.45, and 103.75, risking all to 103.80!

 

NG:

 

Daily NG Chart: https://stockcharts.com/h-sc/ui?s={6662cb326f536db879050e93fbe8de36d93608a2a48b01f600643f4328fc39a1}24NATGAS&p=D&yr=2&mn=2&dy=15&id=p65944864657&a=406131751&listNum=2 

 

Short Term Update:

 

NG was higher early this week, but gave up some of those gains by the end of the week.

 

In Friday’s day session, NG was higher reaching 3.414.

 

It is now looking like wave *b* did not end at the 3.513 high, and that we are either going back to that level in a 3 wave rally that started at the 3.099 low, or that wave *b* is becoming a bearish triangle.

 

Both of these options still remain valid, but it could be possible that all of wave *b* ended at the 3.497 high, as shown on the Daily NG Chart. The next few days of trading should provide us with our answer.

 

Our updated count for all of wave c is:

1:

(i)=3.37;

(ii)=2.55;

(iii):

-i- = 3.901;

-ii-:

*a* = 3.099;

*b* = 3.513, if complete;

*c* is still underway with a minimum target of 3.099, to complete all of wave -ii-, if wave *b* ended at the 3.513 high;

-iii- to start after wave -ii- ends.

 

We will update our first wave -iii- projection after wave -ii- ends.

 

Long Term Trading Update:

 

It appears that all of wave B is complete at the 1.61 low. If this analysis is correct, then NG is heading back to the 15.78 high in the years ahead.

 

Active Trading Positions: We are long, risking to 2.54, and will add at 3.07!

 

GDX:

 

GDX Daily Chart: https://stockcharts.com/h-sc/ui?s=GDX&p=D&yr=0&mn=6&dy=0&id=p69428674460&listNum=2&a=462053792

 

Short Term Update:

 

The GDX was marginally lower this week.

 

In Friday’s trading session, the GDX was higher. We expect lower prices in the days ahead, as we doubt that all of wave (ii) is complete.

 

Our retracement levels for the of wave (ii) are:

50{6662cb326f536db879050e93fbe8de36d93608a2a48b01f600643f4328fc39a1} = 21.42;

61.8{6662cb326f536db879050e93fbe8de36d93608a2a48b01f600643f4328fc39a1} = 20.72.

 

Upon completion of wave (ii), we expect a very sharp rally in wave (iii). We will provide our projections for the end of wave (iii) when we are sure that wave (ii) is complete.

 

Long Term Update:

 

In the GDX, we now believe that all of wave 1 ended at 31.79, and that wave 2 at the 18.68 low.  A sharp wave 3 rally is now underway.

 

The wave 3 rally in the GDX will likely follow the same graphically picture, that we have shown on the Daily Gold Chart.

 

Our first and second projection for end of wave 3 is:

3=1.618(1)=49.95;

3=2.618(1)=68.98.

As with gold and silver, this wave 3 impulsive sequence will consist of 5 subdivisions. 

 

Active Trading Positions: We are long the GDX, ABX, KGC, NEM, CRJ, and TSX:XGD with no stops!
