Goldtent TA Paradise
Gold close to two potential support lines on my chart, one parallel to the larger blue pitchfork and also the upper rail of the smaller light blue fork. Both care close to $1310 as of 15 July, St. Swithin’s Day, so let’s hope it doesn’t rain!
The test of support at the light blue line is a potential back-test of the breakout above the light blue fork that already happened. I have seen these two forks as roughly equal in importance in the price action since the December lows:
Chart watchers are watching.

I got a few emails from disenchanted new traders.
Will post one I just received later.
Fully the Bully
OK Here it is
” Sir. I have been reading you goldtadise for several months now. I am a new dad in my final year of college . I was directed to your website by a friend who made a lot of money following your trades and more particularly he said Mark was the one to follow. I am new to this stuff.
In June I got my first brokerage account and put my savings of $10,000 into it. I decided to put the money into Mark’s trade as I heard he was the best and that he made a shipload in gold trades. I bought DUST and JDUST and in 2 weeks lost almost half my money. After reading your different opinion I got out just monday this week and now these stocks have gone wild. This has been a terrible experience. Why in god’s name do you not warn people like me sooner. I read your kamikazi post today. thanks a lot too late.
So there you have it Jim Its all fun and games until someone loses an eye
I forget sometimes that there are many inexperienced traders reading here who need to be considered…my bad
…I think I will post this…thanks for the support and good night
Thought I would share what my Elliott wave software has found on the $XAU index (explanation to follow):
Please refer to the above chart as I explain. I will try to be as brief as possible…
So we have had a five wave move from Jan 19 to May 17 and a three wave correction from May 17 to May 25. By the rules of Elliott Waves, if this set up occurs, then five waves must follow whether it is an impulsive or corrective wave. As you can see above, starting at May 25 to present, we have had only three complete waves, the fourth is currently in progress.
Another basic tenant of Elliott waves is that wave 4 cannot cross into wave 2 territory. If you then put these two ideas together then the index has tipped its hand. It is telling us that the current decline cannot (under the as-labeled analysis) fall below 95. One more subtly is that when dealing with commodities like gold or silver, there can be a very slight overlap. Having said all that, it becomes obvious that a good place to buy might be in the upper to mid nineties with a tight stop a little below 95, say 93.
(Refer to the wave starting May 25 to present). This should complete wave four and start wave five. Since wave three is longer than wave one, wave five will most likely be equal in duration and amplitude to wave one. This would be about a 15 point gain and put the index somewhere over 110.
If indeed we fall below 93, then the wave would have been mislabeled and would most likely lead to a much deeper retrace. Cheers!
EDIT: I should probably also add that this would complete the larger waves 1-2-3 and 4 would then start, which would be a very significant correction (probably the one everyone is looking for right now).
Double Headed H&S formation. Target on break out is about 200 expected around September 1st. Stop above the two heads. Allow for possible false break of channel as we enter high volatility period. Re-enter short on any re-test of broken neckline for likely lower target end of November. Am using LABD as trading vehicle which has a longer term target of 80.
Also, if you think oil will break down soon look at RUSS. I have a longer term target of 70 on this. Obviously small positions to begin with and take partial profits when appropriate (overbought/ negative divergence etc on the way).
First gap filled…
This correction was expected.
This could just be another BULL flag forming..
I will not get crazy bearish until the lower blue trend line is breached …
WATCH THE RSI 5 TREND LINE…AS THE OTHER INSTANCES, WHEN THIS LINE IS BREACHED TO THE UPSIDE; THAT IS THE TIME TO GO LONG..
I am not able to update chart–fly fishing in the boonies of Montana…

The four horses are last five indicators excluding TRIX…
Also looks like Dollar is going to tag the top line before a bounce..
I’m getting questions regarding decay in the 3X PM trades.
Here is a chart showing this phenomenon…Red and White Candles = GDXJ
Black and White = JDST
I can’t completely explain why this happens but it has something to do with the fact that the 3X leveraged etfs reset every day . Take JDST for example….it moves inverse 3X the price action of GDXJ. If GDXJ drops 5% one day
JDST goes up 15% that day. The rinse and repeat each day. Anyhow its complex BUT look at the chart last time GDXJ was at 44 July 1 JDST was $8. Today it is at 44 and JDST is at $7. This is 12% less even though GDXJ is the same price. This is an important concept to be aware of in trading these things .
Here is my perspective using my own indicators. As I posted a while back I saw a weakness in the YEN vs USD. In retrospect that turned out to be the top in PM’s value wise. (the correlation is uncanny)
The YEN is still in a downtrend against the USD. It could be consolidating it’s gains for a push higher but that is not happening now. I will post when I think the trend in the YEN changes.
The trend is still up for GOLD, SILVER the GDX and GDXJ. They are all short term correcting their gains.
If I think they are starting a major correction I will post that. If it happens.
These are the dog days of summer late July early Aug. I think if the trends above hold, there will be a terrific entry point coming up.
I will also post when I see a good entry point for a fall rally.
This Post has been at Rambus’ Site for 4 years now…and I thought it was still appropriate:
WARNING KAMIKAZI TRADING CAN BE FINANCIAL SUICIDE…………….
So You Want to Be a Kamikazi Trader ?
Here’s The Deal :
Kamikazi Trades are the 3 X Precious Metals Bull and Bear ETFs
DUST – 3X PM Stocks Bear…………….NUGT – 3X PM Stock Bull
DSLV – 3X Comex Silver Bear………….USLV – 3X Comex Silver Bull
DGLD – 3X Comex Gold Bear……………UGLD – 3X Comex Gold Bull
AND NOW the new kamikazi’s on the block
JDST – 3X Junior Miner Bear………….JNUG – 3X Junior Miner Bull
The Most Volatile of these trades are JDST and JNUG
These vehicles are based on a PM Stock Index ..the GDXJ
Junior PM Stocks exhibit the wildest volatility of all the major market stock sectors
DUST and NUGT and now JDST and JNUG amplify this volatility.. (know as Vomitility at Rambus Chartology)… TIMES 3
They can.. and do.. move 20% in a day ..Plus
And regularly move 5% to 10% in Minutes
The Next Most Volatile are the Silvers …followed by the Golds
Rambus Has been probably the ONLY PM Analyst who has held Longer Term Positions in these vehicles
He Identified a Bearish Pattern developing in the HUI (PM INDEX) in December 2012
He had been invested in DUST from the Low 30s at that time to a high of 165 on June 26th
His Conviction to hold this vehicle through huge volatility was proven to be correct (if harrowing)
However even Rambus an experienced trader to say the least was humbled by the volatility when
3 weeks after the peak DUST had LOST $100 a share off its Price and a 500% gain was “reduced” to a 200% gain
After Great Debate about the merits and pitfalls of these 3x PM ETFs and Much Analysis at the Chartology Forum
and After watching new Subscribers jump in with both feet ..(even after a triple and quadruple of the Price of DUST)
and get crushed …we Decided to Require All Present and Future Kamikazi Traders to read this Information
We are calling this the Sir Lostalot Clause
In honor of our nearly departed New Member Sir Lostalot
The Lostalot Clause :
1…Do Not Trade the Kamikazis if you are Not an experienced Trader
2…Do not trade the Kamikazis if you are an Emotional Trader ie prone to Excessive bouts of Fear Greed and Panic and Euphoria
3..Do Not Trade the Kamikazis with money you cannot afford to lose
…ie…Retirement Funds…Mortgage Money…Childrens College Funds…or Food Stamps
4…Do Not Trade the Kamikazis if you cannot read charts or do not understand Chartology Yet
5…If You Trade the Kamikazis take full Responsibility for the results
6…If you Trade the kamikazis…use Rambus Chartology as a guide as to the probabilities
and to help you stay predominately on the right side of the trade…do not trade exctly as Rambus does
unless you are totally comfortable with moves of 50% and more up and down in short periods
7…If you make Profits n the Kamikazis ..consider booking a portion of them…try not to overstay your positions
8…If you trade the Kamikazis hang out at the chartology forum with other traders
9…Understand that in Fast Moving Markets the kamikazis actually move MORE that 3X the Underlying asset…for or against you
This is called compounding
10…Understand that in rangebound choppy markets Kamikazi Trades decay and they lose value even as the underlying asset remains unchanged
This is Called Slippage
11…Understand that just because you lost a bundle on being Long the PM Markets and you want to recoup your losses fast
do not just jump on a Kamikaze as soon as you arrive here..
Watch them and learn ..read ALL the Timeless Tutorials and understand charting first
Then wait for a good entry point..based on Rambus Work..and start with Small Bites
12…Good Luck… you will need some of that too !
OK Killer Go Get Em…Baaaanzaiiiiiiiiii
I was highlighting perceived risk after receiving so many comments about being militantly short at resistance levels and how risky it was to be anything but long during a parabolic gappy rise after gold almost exactly nailed my fib target of $1,371. I thought a 3rd wave was supposed to plough through resistance at those levels and the next stop for gold was $1,500+? Yes, I’m annoyed by some recent comments when I’m about the only one who isn’t even peddling a paid service. I feel like if you are any good at trading, you should get rich with your own trading capital and not subscription fees. My philosophy is building positions at good risk/reward levels, understanding structure, as well as support and resistance. If people are going to be more critical of me just because they are having a bad trading day then this is my last post here.
On July 14 the ratio reverse with bearish divergence. This ratio signal is very reliable at extreme level of TSI.
