The DOW Heads For 20,000

Hello MarketClub members, well here we are at the beginning of a new trading week with lots going on. Somehow I don’t think we are going to be seeing the dog days of summer in 2016. Last Friday the major indices resumed their upward journey and the continuation pattern I discussed in my previous video. I continue to think that the equity markets can go higher, a lot higher based on the Trade Triangles and the technical formation on the charts.

MarketClub's Mid-day Market Report

I can see the DOW (INDEX:DJI) moving over the 20,000 mark in the next several months. The markets could get another boost today as one of the presidential hopefuls is going to propose the biggest tax cuts we have ever seen in modern times.

Last week I discussed and analyzed Kinder Morgan Inc. (NYSE:KMI) and that stock is up over 1% in early morning trading. That move is reflective of the movement in crude oil (NYMEX:CL.U16.E) today and the generally friendly tone towards the equity markets. I'm looking for Kinder Morgan to continue moving higher.

Gold (FOREX:XAUUSDO) on the other hand, which took a drubbing Friday because of the jobs report is down about half a percent this morning and is generally looking for a direction to move in. One of the great questions I had last week was how can gold and the equity markets move in the same direction? What's fascinating is that over the years I have been able to observe markets that move in lockstep and then all of a sudden for reasons beyond anyone's imagination they suddenly decouple and move independently. That may be what has just happened to gold and equity markets.

Having said that, I still like the gold-mining shares which remain in a positive trend. The pullback on Friday pushed both Newmont Mining (NYSE:NEM) and Barrick Gold Corporation (NYSE:ABX) back to areas where they should find good support.

This should be a very interesting week for gold, crude oil and of course, the equity markets so stay tuned and check out today’s video update.

Stay focused and disciplined.

Every success with MarketClub,

  1. I can't believe Adam has changed his tune. Maybe he is just pretending. That "box" pattern that Adam has outlined in the DOW and S&P...if you look at those boxes very carefully over that two-year appears a black swan figure has quietly formed for each. We are now at the head, the false breakout. What do black swans signal??? TROUBLE! Adam has supposedly jumped on the DOW 20,000 bandwagon. I remain in the DOW 12,500 camp. It should get very interesting after Labor Day. The potential for a 6,000-point dive in the third of the stock market's value could be wiped away in just the next 90 days!!!

  2. That's because the dollar is heading for ZERO
    the Dow is valued in dollars that the Fed is constantly debasing. (theft through inflation)
