The U.S. Dollar's 2014-2015 Rally: Wave 3 in Action

An excerpt from our free 14-page report shows you how the Elliott Wave Principle can "Boost Your Forex Success"

By: Elliott Wave International

I always say trading forex markets is like riding a bike -- except that said bike has one flat tire and the ground beneath it is covered in ice.

So why are they so popular, you might ask? In fact, forex is the most liquid market on earth, where trillions of dollars change millions of hands every day.

The reason people are so willing to ride that bike -- so to speak -- is because if you can stay on, the rewards are often unmatched. The trick, of course, is staying on.

There's no such thing as a fool-proof strategy. Slips and scrapes are bound to happen. But as the title of Elliott Wave International's chief currency strategist Jim Martens' go-to guide reveals, there is definitely a way "The Elliott Wave Principle Can Boost Your Forex Success."

Here below, you can read an exclusive excerpt from Chapter 1: [Read more...]

Gold Futures

Gold futures in the August contract settled last Friday at 1,173 an ounce while currently trading at 1,163 as I’ve been recommending a short position when prices broke the 1,170 level while placing your stop loss above the 10 day high which stands at 1,201 risking around $31 or $1,000 per mini contract plus slippage and commission. Gold futures are trading below their 20 and 100 day moving average breaking out to a 3 ½ month low as a possible retest of the contract low of 1,144 is in the cards in my opinion as I was recommending a short position a month ago getting stopped out so here I’m trying again to the downside as I’m a trend follower and the trend clearly in my opinion is lower.

Fed Interest Rate Increase Could Be Best Thing to Happen to Gold

The Gold Report: Common wisdom says that when the U.S. Federal Reserve raises interest rates later this year, it will prove negative for gold. Do you agree?

Jeb Handwerger: I think it'll be the opposite. Money printing and easy credit has fueled the stock market rally and beaten down commodities. Investors flocked to dividend-paying stocks, and became speculative in tech, which has led to huge overvaluations similar to the late 1990s dot-com debacle. We've had a four-year parabolic rise in the Dow without a meaningful correction. Most investors who have been in this business for a while know that every four years you get a bear market with about a 3050% correction. Rising interest rates may be the catalyst that causes investors to flee the general stock market, which has proven attractive in a low rate environment. Higher interest rates concurrent with a pickup in inflation could result in a rush to a safe haven in commodities and wealth from the earth's natural resources and precious metals, which is historically a hedge against a pickup in inflation.

Chinese Stocks: "How to Think Like a Billionaire Investor"

By Elliott Wave International

With China's main Shanghai Composite index up almost 40% this year, and the tech-heavy Shenzhen Composite index up more than 90% YTD, are Chinese stocks in a bubble?

It's a legitimate question. You'll find many answers out there, but this answer you won't want to miss.

This answer comes from Elliott Wave International's own Mark Galasiewski, the editor of EWI's monthly Asian-Pacific Financial Forecast. Mark is on record for turning bullish on Chinese stocks almost a year ago, exactly on July 3, 2014. In that month's issue -- and at the time when almost no one was bullish on China -- Mark wrote:

"If the [Shanghai Composite] index breaks out above the upper channel line -- which runs through 2100 in July and which is about 2% above current levels -- then the multi-month uptrend that we have been expecting is likely under way."

Getting back to the question if Chinese stocks are in a bubble -- below, you'll find a link to a free special report where Mark gives you his answer in full detail. To give you a taste, here's an excerpt from Mark's June 2015 Asian-Pacific Financial Forecast: [Read more...]

Gold Futures

Gold futures in the August contract settled last Friday in New York at 1,202 while currently trading at 1,170 an ounce down about $30 for the trading week remaining incredibly choppy as I was recommending a short position getting stopped out in last week’s trade when prices bumped up against 1,200 as I’m sitting on the sidelines at the current time waiting for another breakout to occur and that could happen soon as prices remain very weak. Gold futures are trading below their 20 and 100 day moving average looking to break the critical 1,170 level and the second critical level is 1,160 if that level is broken I would have to think that the bear market is underway as I see no reason to own gold at the current time as all the interest is in the stock market which is right near all-time highs.

Today he’s going to talk about knowing your way around a chart.

For most traders, charts are like their road maps to potential trades. Technicians see potential patterns, key clues that they interpret for trading opportunities. Fundamentalists see confirmation of news stories or supply and demand dynamics playing out in the price fluctuations. Charts are indispensable to traders

Understanding what a chart is telling you is paramount for traders

We are going to look at the two most common chart types, and the basics of their construction. The main thing to understand when you are looking at any given chart is that there is key info that shouldn't change. Each chart will be showing you prices on one axis and time periods on another. Most charts will show the prices on the vertical axis and time periods (e.g. daily, hourly, five minute) on the horizontal one, like this: [Read more...]

A Small Bet On Natural Gas Could Make Traders Big Profits

By: Joseph Hogue of Street Authority

The surge in natural gas production has changed the energy landscape in the United States. Production jumped 44% between 2005 and 2014 compared to a decline of 4.5% over the previous nine-year period.

Prices for natural gas at the Henry Hub in Louisiana jumped 162% between 2002 and 2008 on lower production and an economic boom in emerging markets. By 2012, prices had fallen nearly 70% to $2.75 per million BTU. Beyond a few spikes on colder weather, prices have flatlined between $2.50 and $3.50 for the past two and a half years.

Natural Gas Prices and Production

Futures prices on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME) suggest traders are not expecting much to change this year, with the December contract priced at $3.17. But two catalysts may prove speculators wrong and spark a rally in natural gas prices. Traders who get positioned now stand to make up to 50% profits without ever touching a futures contract.

The director of the Socionomics Institute, Mark Almand, came up with an analogy to help explain socionomic causality in people. And I'm so jealous that he came up with this idea, because it's so cool. I just love it. So I'm privileged to be able to embellish on it and present it to you now. [Read more...]

Gold Futures

Gold futures in the August contract settled last Friday in New York at 1,172 an ounce while currently trading at 1,201 an ounce rallying sharply on rumors of a Greece exit possibly happening over the weekend sending prices sharply higher as I was recommending a short position from around the 1,170 level getting stopped out in yesterday’s trade losing around $30 or $1,000 per mini contract plus slippage and commission.

Janet Yellen and the FOMC committee did not raise interest rates earlier in the week sending gold sharply higher hitting a 3 week high but I still remain skeptical of this rally as a deal with Greece will occur in my opinion as the stock market still remains strong keeping money out of the gold market in the short term.
