After seven consecutive losing days has silver fond its footing trading positive by 1.77% as of this post. Now the catalyst may be a disappointing jobs number but to me if we can get follow through into next week silver may deserve some of your speculative dollars.

Scaling into bullish Silver trade

I see all these articles on selling silver…well I’m a buyer for clients. Silver futures have declined 10% in the last month and are lower by 16% from their highs in the end of November. I think silver was a sale $32.50-$34.50 and a buy now. My understanding is we try to buy low and […]

Dr. Copper the barometer of the global economy

In the last 4 weeks copper prices have declined over 30 cents dragging prices to their lowest level in 3 ½ months. Prices rose steadily after bottoming in mid-November but in just over 4 weeks those gains were erased. As of this post we are completing 61.8% Fibonacci retracement and penetrating a trend line that […]

Buy Gold and sell Platinum

Energy: March Crude oil futures will finish lower by nearly 1% just off the lows at the 8 day MA. I think our patience will pay off as I expect that level to be breached and lower trade to follow in the coming sessions. I’ve suggest bearish exposure to clients thinking we get a break […]

Silver to book profits

Energy: January Crude oil has found buying support just above $84/barrel. A close back over the 8 and 20 day MAs should confirm an interim low. I am operating under the influence that we get a bounce from current levels and have advised clients to lightly scale into long futures and options plays targeting a […]

Metals building a base

Energy: Crude oil backed off unable to hold onto its gains but I’m seeing signs of the tide shifting with a positive close 4 out of the last 5 sessions. Exit remaining bearish trade and book profits. I expect to have bullish trade recs in the coming sessions…stay tuned. RBOB closed positive but nearly 7 […]

Gold is Ebbing

Energy: Crude oil was able to close in the green after being down nearly $2 in early dealings. We will need to see a settlement under to 100 day MA in December, currently just under $91 to confirm bearish sentiment. On a trade back near $88.50 on this contract I will be looking to unload […]
