It is a good thing I do not rate my trading advice on the number of likes I get.
So, with the tweet spot on, the very next day, me and my MMM Advantage members entered long at 149.50.
Since, we have taken profits, added to the position and taken profits again.
To date, we still hold a core position.
With the huge earnings week, central bank bond buying, burgeoning money supply and a market that has rallied off the lows way more than most expected, time to look at the metal again.
Here is stockcharts with our proprietary indicators, RealMotion and Triple Play Indicators.
As far as pure price, the phase is bullish. Even though the price has come off the highs, it’s still in relatively good shape.
Furthermore, the average daily volume has steadily declined during the correction.
The Real Motion Indicator shows that when GLD made a new high close on April 13th, the momentum was very strong.
Then the next high close on April 23rd, note that the momentum did not make a new high thus showing a divergence between price and momentum.
Currently, should GLD’s RM indicator break down below the last swing low, then it could be that GLD is ready to correct harder..
If however, the momentum holds here and starts to go back up, most likely that is telling us GLD’s bullish phase is still intact.
Price performance or GLD relative to SPY shows that GLD is underperforming on a monthly basis.
Against the bonds though, GLD is still outperfoming on a monthly basis, but not on a 6-month basis.
Conclusion-We will know very soon if momentum picks up or fails further and whether we add to our position, or keep our trailing stop and exit should it get hit.
Russell 2000 (IWM) 127 the 50-DMA support to hold if good. 134.50 resistance
Dow (DIA) 237 support to hold
Nasdaq (QQQ) 210 should hold if good
KRE (Regional Banks) Failed to get through the 50-DMA.
SMH (Semiconductors) Messy day-nearest support is at 130.00
IYT (Transportation) Could not close over the 50-DMA . 145 support
IBB (Biotechnology) Nasty looking candle close but support at 123.50 should hold if good
XRT (Retail) 38.50 is huge resistance with 35.00 support
Volatility Index (VXX) Managed to close just over the 50-DMA. See what happens at 40.00
