Captain Ewave Morning Post!
Please click here for the Bob Balan Ewave Basics Handbook… which the Captain highly recommends:
Don’t try to learn Ewave all in one day. Focus on when the Captain is buying or selling, and the big wave counts.
From there, add more detail to your study.
If any sub needs one-on-one help with the wave counts, just some handholding during market dips, or both, shoot us an Email we’ll work out a phone talk time slot. Can buy a one-time slot or multi… Thanks, Captain & Crew
Short Term Update:
The CDNX was initially marginally higher in Friday’s trading session reaching a high of 958.17 although we closed lower at 950.43!
Longer term we are still rallying in wave .iii. and within wave .iii. we completed wave -i- at 1113.64 and it now looks like wave -ii- is finally complete at the 847.92 low.
If that is the case then we are now rallying in wave -iii-, which has the following initial projected endpoint:
-iii- = 1.618-i- = 1573.16.
In the short term we have lots of resistance to get through between these current levels and 1000. Next resistance is 971.60, then 982.22.
The current rally from the 847.92 low is wave $i$ of (i) of -iii-, that appears on the Intraday Chart to still be incomplete at the 966.57 high.
We therefore expect higher prices before all of wave $i$ ends.
Our initial projected endpoint for the larger wave -iii- is:
.iii. = 1.618.i. = 1357.04!
Trading Recommendation: Long the GDXJ as a long-term hold.
Active Positions: Heavily long the GDXJ and key juniors on the CDNX, as a long-term hold!
GDX & Gold Stocks:
GDX 60 Min Chart:
GDX Daily Chart:
Short Term Update:
The GDX was lower in Friday’s trading reaching a low of 31.70, closing at 31.71.
We have started to rally sharply higher in wave *iii*, which has an initial projected endpoint of :
*iii* = 1.618*i* = 76.72.
Within wave *iii* we are working on wave ^i^. Within wave ^i^ we are working on wave -i- which is complete at the 33.95 high.
We are in our wave -ii- drop which has the following retracement levels:
50% = 31.39;
61.8% = 30.79.
We are still short of our 50% retracement level, so we still expect further weakness in the days ahead.
Note that the current drop in the GDX will create the final leg of a head and shoulder bottoming formation as shown on our 60 Min GDX Chart.
All of wave *iii* will likely take 12 to 18 months to develop.
Our updated projection for the end of wave -3- is:
3 = 2.618 (1) = 66.37.
We do have higher projections, however, as gold is likely heading well above $5000/oz.
Kinross(Updated September 02nd, 2021):
We continue to rally in subdividing wave -iii- of (iii), which has an updated projection for its completion of:
-iii- = 4.25-i- = 19.25.
Within wave -iii-, we completed wave .i. at 10.24 and appear to still be working on wave .ii, which has the following retracement levels:
50% = 6.48;
61.8% = 5.59.
We have now reached our 61.8% retracement level so we need to be on guard for the completion of wave .ii. and the start of a sharp rally in wave .iii..
Longer term our updated projection for the end of wave (iii) is:
(iii) = 4.25(i) = 21.55.
Barrick (Updated September 01,2021): We are now rallying in an extending wave iii rally which has the following projection for its completion:
iii = 2.618i = 53.94
Wave iii still has along way to go and within this wave we are now rallying in wave (iii). Wave (iii) is now subdividing also, and it looks like we completed wave -i- at 31.01 and all of wave -ii- at the 18.64 low. We are now rallying in wave -iii-, which has the following initial projected endpoint:
-iii- = 1.618-i- = 48.35.
Our current projected endpoint for all of wave (iii) is:
(iii) = 2.618(i) = 45.24.
Newmont Goldcorp: We are now rallying in (v) of iii, which has the following projected endpoint:
iii = 2.618i = 107.85.
After wave iii ends, we expect a wave iv correction that retraces between 23.6 to 38.2% of the entre wave iii rally.
HUI (Updated August 31st, 2021): We continue to rally in wave 3 which has the following projected endpoint:
3 = 2.618(1) = 620.32.
Within wave 3 we are rallying in wave iii, which has the following updated projected endpoint:
iii = 4.25i=644.35.
Within wave iii, we are still working on aa complex wave (ii), which has the following retracement levels:
50% = 258.18;
61.8% = 230.88.
After wave (ii) ends we expect a very sharp rally in wave (iii). We will provide our initial projections for the end of wave (iii), when we think all of wave (ii) is complete.
XAU (Updated August 31st, 2021): We continue to rally in wave (iii), which has the following projected endpoint:
(iii) = 2.618(i) = 226.55.
Within wave (iii), we now think that all wave -iii- ended at the 165.36 high and if that is the case then we are now falling in wave -iv- which has the following retracement levels:
23.6% = 141.24;
38.2% = 125.15.
After wave -iv- ends we expect another sharp rally higher in wave -v-, which is project to reach the 226.55 level to complete all of wave (iii).
Trading Recommendation: Long Term hold of all gold stocks and indices.
Active Positions: We remain long the GDX, ABX, KGC, NEM, SSRM, and TSX:XGD with no stops!!
Daily Gold Chart:
Short Term Update:
Gold was lower in Friday’s day session reaching a low of 1772.50.
In the overnight session as we have moved higher reaching a high of 1792.20!
We continue our long correction in our wave -iv- bullish triangle as shown on our Daily Gold Chart.
Within wave -iv- we completed all of wave .c. at the 1675.90 low and we are now rallying in wave .d. Wave .d. cannot rally above the wave .b. high of 1919.20 for this current triangle pattern to remain valid.
Remember that legs of triangle formations are full of overlapping waves, so the internal wave structure is sometimes difficult to analysis in real time.
Within wave .d., we are now rallying in wave $c$ which has a projection for its completion of:
$c$ = $a$ = 1882.80.
On the Intraday Chart the trading from the 1745.90 low looks once again to be a very large expanding bullish triangle that has the following three endpoints out of five: 1745.90, 1815.50 and 1772.50.
If this bullish triangle option is valid that we should start to rally again in our fourth endpoint which cannot trade above the 1815.50 high.
After that we should drop one more time but not below the 1783.00 low.
After that gold would then thrust sharply higher. The size of this triangle is suggesting a thrust of between $75/100. This thrust will likely complete all of wave .d..
Longer term, after wave .d. ends we expect one more drop in wave .e. to complete all of our wave -iv- bullish triangle.
Another plausible possibility is that all of wave .d. ended at 1836.90 and all of wave .e. at 1721.10.
This would mean that all of wave -iv- is complete and that the next rally in gold will be a substantial thrust higher in wave -v-. This would create a very non-symmetric triangle, although triangles do not have to look pretty. This will be our alternate count for now.
Also note the potential head and shoulder bottom on our Daily Gold Chart.
Trading Recommendation: Long gold. Use puts as stops.
Active Positions: We are long, with puts as stops!
Daily Silver Chart:
Short Term Update:
Silver was lower in Friday’s day session reaching a low of 23.70.
In the overnight session we have moved higher reaching a high of 24.06!
Wave ii ended at the 21.41 low and we are starting to rally sharply higher in wave iii, which has the following initial projected endpoint:
iii = 1.618i = 50.97.
We are rallying in wave -i- of (i) of iii, although it may be complete at the 24.92 high. If that is the case then we are now correcting in wave -ii- which ash the following retracement levels:
50% = 23.17;
61.8% = 22.75!
We still expect lower prices as wave -ii- unfolds.
Trading Recommendation: Long and using a put as a stop.
Active Positions: Long using a put as a stop!
US 10 Year Bond Yield:
Daily US 10 Year Bond Yield Chart:
Short Term Update:
The US 10 Year Bond Yield was initially higher in Friday’s day session reaching ahigh of 1.619% although we moved lower after that high was made to close lower at 1.557%.
In the overnight session as we have moved higher reaching a high of 1.591%!
It now looks like wave -ii- is becoming a 3 wave pattern with all of wave *a* of -ii- ending at the 1.128% low. We are rallying in wave *b* of -ii-.
We are working on the assumption that all of wave $b$ is complete at the 1.705% high, as we have broken below our lower trendline of our ending diagonal triangle as shown on the Daily US 10 Year Bond Chart.
The current rally is a test of that breakdown, which we expect will fail as we head lower in wave *c*.
The rally from the wave *a* low of 1.128% looks corrective, so we believe that once wave *b* ends we expect another drop in wave *c*, which has a minimum target of the wave *a* low of 1.128%.
Our retracement levels for all of wave -ii- are:
50% = 1.130%
61.8% = 0.99%.
Our initial target for the end of wave (iii) is still:
(iii) = 1.618(i) = 1.910%.
Although we suspect that it will likely extend much higher based on the current initial wave structure for wave (iii).
Trading Recommendation: Short again risking to 1.770%
Active Positions: Short again risking to 1.770%!
Daily SP500 Chart:
120 Minute SP500 Chart:
Short Term Update:
The SP500 was higher in yesterday’s trading session as we reaching another all-time high at 4608.08. In the overnight session the SP500 Futures are up about 17 points!
We are now working on the assumption that all of wave (iii) is complete at the 4545.85, and we are now falling in wave (iv) which has the following retracement levels:
38.2% = 3866.19.
We will need to give this market a few more days to see which corrective pattern it has now become. We still think wave .a. ended at the 4305.91 low and that the current rally is a wave .b.. After wave .b. ends we expect a sharp drop in wave .c. to complete all of wave -a- of (iv).
After wave -a- ends we expect a rally in wave -b- that should exceed the previous all-time high, which we have now done. After wave -b- ends we expect another drop in wave -c-, which will at least trade below our wave a- low to complete all of wave (iv), and into our retracement zone noted above.
Wave (iv) looks to be developing into a complex flat or irregular type corrective pattern.
Trading Recommendation: Flat.
Active Positions: Flat!
Daily USDX Chart:
Short Term Update:
The USDX was higher in Friday’s day session ad that trend higher continued early in the overnight session as we have reached a high of 94.31!
Our large wave *iv* bearish triangle is expanding and extending again, although it looks like all of wave $c$ of *iv* may finally be complete at the 94.57 high.
If that is the case then we should be be moving lower in wave $d$.
For our current bearish triangle to remain valid wave $c$ cannot rally above the wave $a$ high of 94.80.
Wave $d$ which cannot trade below the wave $b$ low of 89.17.
Our next projection for the end of all of wave *v* and -iii- is:
-iii- = 2.618-i- = 86.26.
Trading Recommendation: Short risking to 94.81.
Active Positions: Short risking to 94.81.
Crude Oil and Suncor:
Daily Crude Chart:
https://captainewave.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/11/ewnov121oil.png Short Term Update:
Crude was higher in Friday’s day session and that trend higher has continued in the overnight session as we have reached a high of 84.27!
Our large bullish wave (iv) triangle is complete at the 69.39 low and we are now thrusting higher in wave (v) of i as shown on the Daily Crude Chart. Based on the size of the bullish triangle we should expect a thrust in the order of $10 to $15, which should see wave i end around the $80/90 level.
Suncor: Wave iii is subdividing and within wave iii, all of wave (i) ended at the 25.73 high, and all of wave (ii) at the 16.91 low. We should now be rallying in wave (iii), which has the following initial projected endpoint:
(iii) = 1.618(i) = 41.28.
Suncor is on the verge of a major breakout to the upside.
Our current projection for the completion of all of wave iii to:
iii = 2.618i = 42.40
Trading Recommendation: Long crude with a put as a stop. Long Suncor.
Active Positions: Long crude with put as a stop! Long Suncor!
