The stock market is the worst place for anyone who cannot accept being wrong. There is no room for those who are stubborn. The market is right, always. And when you finally agree with the market, it will turn on you and go the other way. That is what the market does. And it does this very well. Good Trading to You. *This is not an investment advisory and you should always do your own DD. I accept no responsiblity for your gains or losses.

     Imagine for one minute if we never listened to nor read the news and instead focussed on nothing but charts. First, we would have noticed that the stock market has been on a monster run for over a year and a half.  Second, we would also have noticed that we could have thrown a dart at fifteen stocks last year in March, forgotten about them, and we'd have probably multiplied our investments by...

  • Running on Empty

     ETF's are simply not living up to the promises they deliver.  They cannot - and do not - compete with ordinary mutual funds.  One would think a leveraged "double" ETF that is supposedly capitalizing on the precious metals' market, would have catapaulted the average buy and hold investor into the stratosphere where the precious metals market is concerned.  Think again.  If, one year ago, you...

  • This Week's Charts

        Gold and the 50 DMA Gold and Agriculture   I have been bullish on agriculture/food stocks since June, and this week I found Viterra Inc while scanning the markets. Aside from the short-term MACD (which I would prefer were a little more cooperative), the chart is optimistic and broke through resistance Friday on good volume. Agricultural stocks are moving, and I see no reason why Viterra...

  • Has Yamana Finally Turned the Corner?

    110 Reads | 3 Comments | September 16, 2010

     Yamana has been Global Gold's whipping boy for some time now, but perhaps it's (finally) Yamana's turn to shine. Here is a bullish target for you .... if you want a bearish one I can give you that, too. So here is  the bullish Yamana chart. The immediate downward trend line is busted.  There is enough resistance in Yamana's way, so I wouldn't get too excited. Nevertheless, despite the fact...

  • Let's Keep Americans OUT of Canadian Politics!

     On more than one occasion, I've been at odds with a writer here on Stockhouse when it comes to Canadian politics. Oh ... Stephen Harper has a former Goldman Sachs "stooge" infiltrating "our monetary policies." And now we are supposed to elect Liberal leader Michael Ignatieff instead? Why?? Ignatieff LEFT Canada, for you Liberals who have forgotten. He didn't leave for a year or two, mind you  ...

  • A Precious Resource

     In a blog back on June 19th, I suggested that people might want to consider stocking up on food rather than putting every spare dollar they had into gold and gold stocks. My reasoning at the time was that Saskatchewan was rained under, and the oil spill in the Gulf continued to flow. Now comes word India is also suffering from a poor harvest. This has created inflationary symptoms and...

  • A Wall Street Reversal on Technical Analysis?

    74 Reads | 0 Comments | August 21, 2010

     As we head into a new week, bearish sentiment seems to be picking up steam. Most sector charts are looking like a parachute raid on the terrain below. Forget stealth, it's an unconcealed attack heading straight for the bull's fortress.  There's no wonder, then, that the bears are coming out in full force after spending the last eighteen months licking their wounds.  Nevertheless, there is an...
