Gold Futures

Gold futures in the August contract continued its bearish trend trading lower for the 4th consecutive session hitting a fresh 7-month low trading at 1,270 an ounce. I still see no reason to own this commodity as the NASDAQ 100 hit another all-time high this week and all of the interest lies in the equity market, not gold. In my opinion, if you are short a futures contract stay short as the next level of support is around 1,260 which could be tested in tomorrows trade. I still think we could retest the December 12th low of 1,251 & if that occurs prices could head down to the 1,200 level as a strong U.S dollar continues to impact gold prices as that market is also hovering right near an 11 month high & looks to even move higher in my opinion. Gold futures are trading under their 20 and 100-day moving average telling you that the short-term trend is lower and if you're short a futures contract continue to place the proper stop above the 2-week high standing at 1,313 as the chart structure will start to improve in next week's trade, therefore, lowering the monetary risk. I am certainly not recommending any bullish position as that would be counter-trend trading as this market is getting stronger to the downside on a weekly basis.

Leading Cannabis Biotech Could Soar

Analysis originally distributed on Juney 13, 2018 By: Michael Vodicka of Cannabis Stock Trades

Blockbuster drugs are the holy grail of the pharmaceutical industry.

When annual sales of a hot new drug break the $1 billion mark, investors are usually rewarded with big gains.

This is what began happening in 2012 with Gilead Sciences Inc. (GILD).

In 2013, the FDA approved Gilead’s hepatitis C drug Sovaldi.

In 2014, Gilead scored an FDA approval for another Hep C drug, Harvoni.

Both drugs went on to quickly hit blockbuster status – sending shares of Gilead soaring – jumping more than 200% in the next two years.

Cannabis Biotech

Today, the young cannabis industry is in hot pursuit of its first-ever cannabis blockbuster – and it looks like a winner could be crowned on June 27. Continue reading "Leading Cannabis Biotech Could Soar"

Gold Futures

Gold futures in the August contract are ending the week on a sour note down $26 an ounce currently trading at 1,284 filling the gap that I've talked about in previous blogs that occurred on December 21st at 1,284 as this market has now hit a 6-month low. The U.S. dollar continues to hover around its contract high as that's the main culprit for depressed prices as gold continues its bearish momentum in 2018 also pushing silver prices down $0.60 this afternoon as that is my only precious metal recommendation at the current time. Gold futures are trading under 20 and 100-day moving average telling you that the trend is to the downside breaking out of a 4-week consolidation as the volatility certainly has expanded as the entire commodity markets across the board today are lower as the Trump tariffs talks are throwing a wrench into the closet and who knows how this situation is going to end up. The next major level of support stands at 1,260 as there is still room to run to the downside in my opinion as all of the interest still remains in the U.S. equity market which is also lower today, however the NASDAQ 100 did hit all-time highs once again this week as money flows continue to come out of gold and into stocks as I don't see that situation changing as I still believe the stock market will remain strong for the rest of this year.

Gold Futures

Gold future prices in the August contract is currently trading at 1,303 an ounce still stuck in a 3-week tight consolidation pattern. I am not involved in this market, but I do have a bullish bias toward silver and the copper market which is higher once again today. Volatility in gold is extremely low as we are right near major support on the daily chart. However, one thing that does concern me is that there is a price gap around 1,280 which was hit in late December 2017. I don't like gaps as they are generally filled so be patient and let's see if that situation occurs. Gold prices are still trading under their 20 and 100-day moving average as the short-term trend is to the downside. The U.S. dollar is still hovering right near a 5-month high and has been the main culprit for depressed gold prices as all of the interest remains in the U.S. equity market which is right near another all-time high today as money flows continue to go into that sector and out of gold. The highly anticipated summit between North Korea and the United States is next week and tensions have eased as there is a possibility that North Korea could end their nuclear program. If that is the case, you would probably have to think that gold prices would head lower in the short term, however, avoid this commodity and look at other markets that are beginning to trend.

Is This Canadian Cannabis IPO The Next Big Winner

Analysis originally distributed on May 31, 2018 By: Michael Vodicka of Cannabis Stock Trades

Cannabis IPOs have a proven history of delivering big returns in a short amount of time.

Medreleaf (LEAF) is a great example.

Medreleaf became the largest Canadian cannabis IPO ever in June 2017. Investors were eager to buy and shares quickly began rising.

Less than 12 months later, shares are up 275% from the IPO price.

US cannabis companies

Today – I see this same cycle repeating itself.

One of the largest US cannabis companies just began trading on the Canadian Stock Exchange – and much like Medreleaf – I am expecting good things. Continue reading "Is This Canadian Cannabis IPO The Next Big Winner"
