Gold Futures

Gold futures in the February contract settled last Friday in New York at 1,322 an ounce while currently trading at 1,333 up about $11 for the trading week right near a four-month high. I'm currently not involved in any of the precious metals as they have rebounded sharply over the last month. The U.S. dollar has now hit a four-month low in today's trade continuing its bearish trend which has supported gold and the precious metals recently, but the chart structure is poor coupled with the fact that we are in overbought territory. I will be patient & wait for a better chart pattern to develop before entering into a trade. Gold prices are trading above their 20 and 100-day moving average as the trend is higher as we now look to retest the September 8th high around 1,365 in my opinion. This market has rallied substantially from the recent low, that was hit on December 12th at 1,238 as we have now rallied nearly $100 in a blink of an eye despite the fact that U.S. stock market hits all-time highs every day, but this rally is based on a weak U.S. Dollar. Gold is also riding the coattails of the energy market which is right at a three-year high in crude oil as both of these are considered inflationary commodities as the U.S. economy and worldwide economies are improving significantly as that should bolster commodity prices across the board in 2018.

Analysis originally distributed on January 3, 2018 By: Michael Vodicka of Cannabis Stock Trades

2017 turned out to be a great year for cannabis stocks - particularly if you knew which stocks to buy.

The North American Cannabis Index was up 86% in 2017.

North American Marijuana Index

Canadian stocks were on fire - the Canadian Cannabis Index was up 160% in 2017.

Canadian Marijuana Index

Most improved award goes to US cannabis stocks - they were steadily falling for most of the year - down 40% on the year in late October.

Then in early November, a major rally kicked in and US cannabis stocks rallied hard - with the US cannabis index jumping more than 100% from the 52-week low. Continue reading "North American Cannabis Index Jumps 86% in 2017"

Gold Futures

Gold futures in the February contract are currently trading at 1,322 an ounce after settling last Friday in New York at 1,309 up about $11 for the trading week continuing its remarkable bullish run over the last month as we have now traded higher for the last 11 consecutive sessions. Gold prices bottomed out on December 12th at 1,238 and have now rallied substantially right near a four-month high. I am not involved in this market as the chart structure is terrible due to the recent run-up in prices all because of the U.S. dollar has now hit a three-month low supporting gold and the precious metals across the board. At this point, I am very reluctant to buy gold as I think it is overextended and if you take a look at the RSI indicator, it's in overbought territory. It's remarkable in my opinion that gold has rallied this much despite the fact that the U.S. stock market has hit an all-time high every day this week & looks to move even higher in 2018 in my opinion. As I've talked about in many previous blogs, I do believe that commodities are extremely cheap at this point. If you're looking to buy gold, I would wait for some type of retracement around the 1,300 level as patience is the key to trading sometimes. However, the trend is to the upside as we are trading above the 20 and 100-day moving average, but I think prices are ahead of themselves.

2 Profit Triggers Could Send This Stock Soaring In 2018

Analysis originally distributed on Decemberber 20, 2017 By: Michael Vodicka of Cannabis Stock Trades

Last week I shared a list of 6 cannabis stocks I expect to profit from the legalization of recreational cannabis in California.

This week I am going to take a deeper dive into one of my favorite stocks from the list.

  • This is a good stock to profit from California
  • It's also a broad play on the US cannabis sector
  • Third-quarter sales were up 86% from last year
  • Shares just spiked into a 52-week high
  • I see plenty more gains ahead.

GrowGeneration (OTC:GRWG) is a US cannabis company headquartered in Denver, Colorado.

Shares are traded in US, OTC markets under the ticker symbol GRWG.

GrowGeneration owns and operates specialty retail hydroponic and organic gardening stores. Currently, GrowGen has 13 stores, which includes 9 locations in Colorado, 2 locations in California, 1 in Las Vegas and 1 location in Seattle.

GrowGen carries and sells thousands of products, including organic nutrients and soils, advanced lighting technology and state of the art hydroponic equipment to be used indoors and outdoors by commercial and home growers. Continue reading "2 Profit Triggers Could Send This Stock Soaring In 2018"

Gold Futures

Gold futures in the February contract settled last Friday in New York at 1,257 while currently trading at 1,272 an ounce up about $15 for the trading week right near a 3-week high. I'm currently not involved in this market as the trend remains mixed. Gold prices are trading above their 20-day moving average but still far below their 100-day as this market remains extremely choppy as all the interest lies in the S&P 500 and the equity markets which hit all-time highs once again this week. Interest also lies in the Bitcoin cyber currency phenomenon, however that currency was down $6,000 this week as trading began on Sunday night at the CME. The U.S. dollar has experienced extremely low volatility over the last several weeks lending very little influence on gold prices, and I'm advising clients to avoid this market as we will see what 2018 brings. I'm not sure where prices are headed at the current time. In my opinion, I still think the path of least resistance is to the downside as we might retest recent lows around 1,238 as political tensions with North Korea have eased over the last several months. This is basically a technical trade at this time so look at other markets with a better potential and a much stronger trend as this market keeps flip-flopping on a daily basis which is difficult to trade successfully.
TREND: MIXED
