Our proprietary price cycle tool is showing us that the Daily Gold cycles may dive a bit lower, possibly into the $1250 to $1265 level, over the next 3~7+ days before reaching an ultimate low. We’ve been covering the precious metals markets like hawks because of our proprietary price modeling tools that suggested the April 21~24 dates as an ultimate low/momentum base pattern. This new cycle formation highlights the potential that a deeper price low in Gold may set up over the next 5 to 7 days and it may become an incredible buying opportunity for skilled traders.
Taking a look at this cycle chart, we can see the deep price low that may target the $1270 levels or levels just below the $1270 price area. It appears that this new price low may form somewhere near the end of this week, May 3rd, or early next week, May 6th or 7th. Please pay attention to this potential price move as this may be the last low price reversal before a very strong upside price move.
You may remember our analysis from January 2019 regarding the ADL price predictions for Gold (the chart is below). Pay very close attention to the “April/May 2019” dates as we are targeting that low price level right now and the upside price potential showing predicted price levels well above $1400.
Skilled traders need to try to understand a move like this in Gold will likely be predicated on some external global news events that create a level of fear in the markets. We don’t know what they may be at the moment, but our suspicions are that they are going to be related to the EU and/or China (or both).
This is it. This should be the last low price rotation (if it happens) before Gold begins to skyrocket higher. Pay attention and remember we were very early in making this call – so it will be an incredible run if it happens as we predicted 5 months ago.

https://thegoldandoilguy.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/04/chart36.jpg9291553adminhttp://www.thegoldandoilguy.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/tgaoglogo.pngadmin2019-04-29 11:21:592019-04-29 11:21:59LONG Top 3 Stocks to Rally in the 21 Days PYX, ARRY, CY
Now that the April 21 ~ 24 Gold “momentum base” prediction that we’ve been discussing for the past 4+ months has past and appears to be accurate, we think it is time to start warning of increased market volatility and the potential for a market “shake-out” to happen. Last week was a key component to our future price predictions and market projections. We believed our proprietary price modeling systems were accurate and had latched onto a key component of the markets – the “momentum base” call in Gold for April 21 ~ 24 of this year. Remember, this original research post was made in September 2018 – over 7 months ago. We kept refining our research over the past 4+ months and warned, repeatedly, that this base in Gold would likely prompt a market shake-out over the next 30~60+ days.
The moves in the major markets, over the past few weeks, have been very telling. With the SPY and NASDAQ pushing to new all-time highs, strong earnings (overall) and the global markets setting up for another shoe to drop (at some point in the future), it leaves many questions for skilled traders. What’s going to happen next and what should we expect from price?
Well, we have a few simple answers for you regarding the next few weeks expectations as well as some bigger future predictions.
First, Crude Oil rotated dramatically lower on Friday. This was a big downward price rotation considering the Trump/Iran deal stance early on in the week. A disruption in the supply of Oil is often a driver of bigger market swings. I learned a long time ago to watch Gold and Oil all the time. These are often the leading commodities that reflect fear/greed in the markets and potential global unrest.
With Crude Oil slipping below a key Fibonacci trigger level (at $65.25) and another key Fibonacci trigger level sitting at $61.60, it seems rather obvious that Oil may slip back below $60 on deeper price rotation over the next few weeks which could lead to a bigger “shake-out” in the markets. We recently posted an article about how Oil could rotate lower and retest the sub $55 level (https://www.thetechnicaltraders.com/oil-may-be-setup-for-a-move-back-50/ ). At this point, a breakdown of oil prices below the $61.60 level would indicate the very strong potential for further downside price.
Precious metals have setup our momentum base/bottom on the dates we predicted over 4+ months ago (April 21 ~24). It is incredible that our ADL price modeling system can be so accurate so far into the future. Our proprietary price modeling systems provide us with an incredible advantage over most other research firms. The ADL and Fibonacci price modeling systems are predicting an upside price advance of at least 12% to 20% over the next few weeks. Read one of our original research posts here: https://www.thetechnicaltraders.com/45-days-until-a-multi-year-breakout-for-precious-metals/
The upside price potential in precious metals should not be overlooked. Additionally, the implication that some other global market malaise could unfold between now and the end of 2019 to drive precious metals prices even higher is fairly strong. We’ve been warning that Europe, China, and even the US markets could come under some pricing pressure or increased volatility as the US markets establish new price highs. It makes sense that traders would be preparing for another deep price rotation as prices near previous peak levels.
The Transportation Index rotated downward near the end of the week quite hard. Thursday, April 25, saw the Transportation Index fall over -250 pts (over -2.25%) after briefly breaching a key resistance level near $11,050. As we’ve been suggesting, the Transportation Index typically leads the markets by a few week/months and we follow it as a means of understanding future trends, risks and price rotations. Right now, the Transportation Index is suggesting increase price rotation and price volatility is likely to “shake-out” the markets for a while.
Lastly, the YM (Dow Futures), is setting up in a very narrow price channel below the recent all-time high established in early October 2018 (at $26,966). This decreased price volatility suggests that the US major indexes are setting up for a price breakout move. Congesting price channels suggest that price is stuck within a defined price range/channel and the ultimate breakout move will likely be a big breakout move to one side or the other. We have our suspicion as to which direction the move will likely be and we’ll share it with you now. Our longer-term analysis suggests that price will continue to push higher while attempting new all-time price highs. Our expectations that price volatility will increase throughout the rest of 2019 suggest we could see some very big price swings over the next 7+ months. But for right now, we believe this YM price channel will result in a brief upside price breakout that will push the YM price to new all-time highs (briefly) before retracing to form another extended sideways price channel near $27,000. Stocks, in general, are doing well as all our positions rallied last week with one stock jumping over 11% in one session.
Below, we have included a Daily YM chart that highlights this current price channel in MAGENTA. Pay very close attention to this channel as we near the eventual price breakout that will end this congestion. Weakness may prompt a “false breakout” to the downside, suckering in shorts, before a continued upside rally pushes prices over the $27,000 market, then stalling to set up the next Pennant/Flag formation. We’ve seen this type of price action many times in the past. Any downside “false breakdown” would prompt a big increase in volatility. This aligns with our broader market analysis. The push to the upside to establishing new all-time highs also aligns with our broader market analysis. Thus, we expect a pretty big series of price events to unfold over the next 2~5+ weeks.

As we continue to scan the charts for setups and trigger to alert our followers, we’ve come across a setup that may be more ominous than what it appears. Recently we’ve posted articles about how the SPY and the NQ have pushed into new all-time high price territory and how Gold is setting up for a momentum base that should launch precious metals to near highs. We’ve also discussed how we believe the current upside price bias in the US stock markets should last another 10~35+ days before new price weakness sets up – possibly pushing prices lower in late May or early June 2019.
Our research team has been scanning the charts looking for anything that could give us an edge to the potential setup for this price weakness in the future. We believe the Transportation Index and the Financials could be keys to understanding how far the upside rally can continue and when a price peak may begin to warn of a potential price top or rollover.
An Island Top is a pattern that sets up with an upside price gap followed by sideways price action above that gap. In theory, this type of setup should promote the gap to be filled with downside price action before any further upside price move can continue. Although, gaps to the upside are fairly common in strong uptrends. Given the strength of the earnings data released early this week and the expectations that we have for some continued upside price bias over the next 10~35+ days, we are watching these Island Top formation in the Financials for any signs of weakness to alert our followers.
This Daily FAS chart highlights the GAP as well as the Resistance levels that are currently acting as a ceiling. A breakout above the resistance level would indicate that we have more room to run higher. Any failed breakout to the upside, where price briefly rallies above the resistance level, then falls back below it, would be a pretty strong indication of a rotational peak. The Financials could fall 10% from current levels and still be within the range of the March/April lows. It would take a much bigger move to qualify as a breakdown bearish trend.
This Daily XLF chart highlights a similar pattern to the FAS chart. The key element of the XLF chart is that the Resistance level provides more key fundamental price peaks than the FAS chart. On this XLF chart, we can see that the current Resistance level aligns perfectly with the Nov/Dec 2018 highs. We can also see a short GREEN Fibonacci trigger level line in early March 2019 above the Resistance level. That Fibonacci trigger level is still valid and any move above that level would constitute a new bullish price trend trigger.
Any failure to break the Resistance level would qualify as a price rotation to fill the GAP and potentially set up a move back to near $25 looking to find new support. Overall, the Financials are poised for a move – up or down. Our research suggests the US stock market is not done rising, thus we are concerned that certain sectors may begin to show signs of weakness as the broader market continues to rise.
Our research team believes a critical peak formation is likely near the end of May or in early June 2019. It is because of this belief that we are warning traders to play the next 15~25+ days very cautiously. Watch the Financials, the Transportation Index, the US Dollar, and Precious Metals. We believe any early signs of weakness will be found within these symbols.

The DOW Transportation Index continues to test resistance near $10,050 as earnings drive the NQ well past historical all-time highs. Our interest in the Transportation Index is because it acts as a fundamental indicator for the US and global economies in terms of future transportation/shipping expectations. When the Transportation Index rises, it is a good sign that business and consumers have faith in the future economy and the continued demand for goods to be supplied to retailers and distribution centers.
The fact that the TRAN is back to near December 2018 highs means we have reached an expected economic expansion level that equals that level just before Christmas 2018. A continued rally would push expectations even higher going into the Summer months. With earnings hitting the market hard today driving a strong rally in almost all the major US stock indexes, we are surprised that the TRAN did not move a bit higher on the news.
Should the resistance level near $11,050 continue to operate as a ceiling for the TRAN, we’ll know soon enough as price should begin to move back below $11,000 and possibly attempt to retest $10,800. A key Fibonacci trigger level currently rests near $10,800 that would indicate a potential for a new bearish trend if this level is broken.
This Weekly TRAN chart, below, highlights just how important the current resistance level really is. This $11,050 level actually plays a key role in the 2018 price rotation and is the key resistance level for the December 2018 rotation peak.
As we’ve continually suggested, Fibonacci price theory suggests that price must always attempt to establish new price highs or new price lows. If this new price high, above the $11,050 fails, then price should attempt to rotate lower and attempt to break the $10,000 low level created in early April 2019.
We suggest traders take a very cautious long-biased stance in the markets right now. Weakness could come out of the shadows fairly quickly as earnings hit. The Iran Oil news hit the markets quickly on Monday. We could wake up to some dire earnings news this week that could send the markets lower and push some of these resistance levels into a topping formation.
Additionally, as you look at this Weekly chart, pay attention to the fact that we could be setting up a Right Shoulder of a Head-n-Shoulders pattern if new all-time highs are not reached. There are many ways to attempt to read this chart and the TRAN should lead the markets if a price move does breakout.
Our research says we should continue to see an upward price bias for at least another 10~35+ days before any real sign of weakness shows up. We are still urging traders to take a very cautious approach to their trading until we see the TRAN break to new highs. We feel it is wise to trade this area very cautiously over the next 30+ days.

One of the most important things about making calls about any future price movement is to have confidence in your research team and systems. The second most important thing is to make these calls public so everyone can see if you were right or wrong about your predictions. Predicting the future, often many months in advance, is not an easy task. We like to ask people, how many people do you know that can predict something in the future, almost to the exact day, and find they were accurate more often than being wrong?
In February/March 2019, our research team honed in on the April 21~24 dates as a key cycle date for a very likely momentum bottom setup. You can read our research here. We believe these dates will be key to the future rally in Gold and they may very well be the last time we see sub-$1300 price levels for a while, but gold does need to reverse to the upside this week.
Currently, Gold is trading at $1278.10 with a recent low at $1273. Remember our original prediction that the momentum base would likely setup between $1260 and $1275? Right now, we believe this Momentum base is setting up exactly as we predicted back in October 2018 – over 6 months ago.
As we continue to watch this Momentum Base setup play out, we urge skilled traders to watch the outlying symbols for signs of confirmation and validation. The news about the Iran Oil Sanctions, today, may become a key element going forward – but it is too early to tell right now. We believe some global economic event will drive prices of Gold much higher over the next 30+ days.
Gold has moved lower over the past 30+ days from the $1340 level down to near the $1270 level – just as we predicted as well. The timing of this recent downswing in price is perfect for our April 21~24 Momentum Base call. We do believe there is still a chance that a $1255 to $1260 level may be seen this week or next. The Momentum Bottom/Basing formation may form over a 7 to 10+ day range. So, pay attention to these opportunities in Gold over the next few days and weeks.
NUGT (3x gold miners bull ETF) continues to fall as Gold Bases. In fact, NUGT has fallen to levels that we have not seen since January 2019. The reality of the matter is that NUGT may be the best confirmation tool/symbol we have right now for timing the end of our Momentum Base in Gold. When NUGT rotates higher and forms the base, it will very likely mark the end of weaker prices for the entire precious metals sector and the beginning of the upside price rally we have been predicting.
As our research team likes to state – this is “do or die” time with regards to our predictions from many months ago. We’ve stuck by them for months, telling anyone who would listen this setup would be the last time you see sub-$1300 levels in Gold for many months – possibly years. If our analysis is correct, we suggest you pay attention to these symbols and lower Gold price levels right now. Once this move begins to rally, it could take the markets by surprise.
Our expectations are that by mid-May, or so, we should already be in an upside price swing that should be targeting the $1450 to $1550 level. This means we have about 7 to 15 trading days until we start to see some real upside price move in precious metals.
We should remind you that gold needs to find a bottom this week and price could become choppy and volatile.
Get ready and follow our research. How many other research firms do you know that are capable of calling the markets 6+ months in advance with this type of accuracy?
https://thegoldandoilguy.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/04/chart19.png387700adminhttp://www.thegoldandoilguy.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/tgaoglogo.pngadmin2019-04-24 09:55:042019-04-24 09:55:51Our April 21~24 Gold Call Is Here
The ES and NQ are very close to breaking out to new all-time highs this week and possibly over the next few weeks. The NQ is very close to these new high levels already. Traders must not take this move for granted as increased volatility and a very real chance for a price correction become even greater once we break into “new high territory”.
This upside move has taken almost 5 months to climb back from the December 2018 lows. It has been a very dramatic rally to say the least. We’ve seen dozens of professional analysts suggest the markets would rotate lower all the way up this rally. It seems as though everyone wanted to be right that the market top in October 2018 was going to be the start of something big. We were one of the few analysts that called the market accurately. Our September 17, 2018 analysis called for almost every leg of this price swing over the past 7+ months. We stuck by our research while others were skeptical and doubting our research. We stuck to it because we believe in our work and modeling tools.
Now, our modeling tools are suggesting we could be setting up for a pretty big increase in volatility over the next 2~3 months with the potential for bigger price rotation into May/June 2019. As we are reading our modeling system results, the key elements are that price will achieve new all-time highs, the price will increase in volatility and Gold should begin an upside price move over the next 2~5+ weeks. The move in Gold suggests one of two things may happen, or both. The US Dollar may weaken or the US stock market may correct a bit based on some economic event or outside foreign economic event.
Either way, the move in Gold suggests that increased volatility is almost a sure thing over the next 60 to 90 days. The only reason Gold would rise is if there is some increased fear factor throughout the planet in regards to the protection of assets and fear of some unknown event. Therefore, if our analysis is correct and Gold does rise as we have indicated, then something is about to create a big increase in volatility.
The key to all of this is that the ES and NQ will move into NEW HIGH territory before this volatility increase begins to become apparent.
This ES Weekly chart shows just how close the ES (S&P500 Futures) are too new all-time highs. The ES needs to climb another 41 points (+1.41%) before it touches the previous all-time high levels. That is really only one of two good upside days. Once it breaks the 2947 level, then the 3000 psychological level becomes a very real target.
This NQ Weekly chart shows that the NQ is really just inches away from breaking to new all-time highs. The NQ only needs to rally 24.50 points (+0.31%) before the 7731 level is breached. We believe this move will happen very early this week and we could see the NQ push all the way above the 8000 level in short order. Our Fibonacci price modeling system is suggesting 9130 and 9625 levels may become the ultimate highs – but it is still very early to tell at this stage of our research.
Back in July and August 2018, we started warning that the end of 2018 and all of 2019 were going to be very good years for skilled traders. We’ve seen a nearly 3800+ point price swing in the NQ and a +1200 point price swing in the ES. Let’s face it, folks, these are very big moves and if you had been capable of trading these moves efficiently, this is the type of price rotation that makes millionaires out of average traders.
Get ready, because the rest of 2019 and almost all of 2020 are going to be just as exciting to trade so be sure to get our trade signals.
We’ll see you on the other side of “new all-time highs” for the US Stock market here soon.
https://thegoldandoilguy.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/04/chart17.png387700adminhttp://www.thegoldandoilguy.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/tgaoglogo.pngadmin2019-04-23 09:39:422019-04-23 09:45:11Prepare For Unknown Price Action As New Highs Are Reached
We know many of you follow our research posts and have been waiting for the Gold/Silver setup we predicted would happen near April 21~24, 2019 back in January 2019. Well, it looks like our predictions were accurate and the current downward price rotation in Gold/Silver are the opportunities of a lifetime for precious metals traders.
Our original research regarding the predicted Gold price rotation and breakout initially posted in October 2018 and was updated in January 2019. You can read our updated post here.
This research suggested, back in October 2018, that gold would rally above $1300, then stall and setup a momentum base near April 21~24, 2019. Currently, we are actively seeking entry positions in Gold, Silver and many other stock market sectors related to the metals and miners.
We’ll start by highlighting the Gold to Silver price ratio. When this ration moves well above 80, it is generally considered a long term buy trigger. The reason for this is that this ratio attempt to reflect the price of Silver to the price of Gold. When this level reaches above 80, it traditionally reflects an extremely cheap price ratio for both Gold and Silver and usually prompts a big price advance in the near future.
Taking a look at historical price moves for both Gold and Silver, we fall back to the big upward price advance that began after the 2009 market crash. One thing that all traders and investors must understand is that, currently, Silver presents an incredible opportunity for bigger returns than Gold. Yes, Gold will likely rally higher and provide an incredible opportunity for upside gains. Yet, historically, Silver begins to move a bit later than Gold does and the upside potential of Silver tends to be 40~70% greater than the upside potential for Gold.
Take a look at this comparison chart, below, of the 2009 to 2011 price move. Gold shot up nearly 100% – as shown on the chart. Silver shot up over 150% when the breakout move happened a bit after the Gold move started. We expect the same type of price advance pattern in the near future. We expect Gold to begin the move higher and Silver to lag behind this upside move a bit – possibly for a few months. Eventually, Silver will break to new multi-year highs and could rally 130% to 220% above current levels – possibly higher.
Over the next few months, we believe increased volatility in the US stock market may drive prices a bit lower as price rotates near all-time highs. We believe this rotation, coupled with foreign market concerns (think Brexit, Europe, China, South America) as well as the US Election cycle may cause the markets to enter a period of stagnation and sideways trading. These impulses may become a catalyst for precious metals to break recent highs and begin an upward price advance as a general increase in FEAR settles into the global markets.
We do believe Gold and Silver will likely move a bit higher over the next 30+ days as the US stock markets continue to push higher towards new all-time highs. Yet, if the volatility increases, as we expect, and a bigger price rotation takes place (see the chart below), we believe Gold and Silver may experience another price drop to near or below current levels before a massive upside breakout move begins. Historically, the price of Gold contracts throughout the initial price correction phase of the S&P500 and begins to accelerate upward near the end of a correction phase. This is because investors and traders are typically shocked to see the correction take place and move into a protective mode as true fear sets in. When fear subsides, traders move out of precious metals and back into stocks.
Our current expectations are that Gold will continue to push lower, below $1275, in an attempt to establish our April 21~24 momentum base. This base should be at or near ultimate lows for the price of Gold and we would expect a pennant or sideways price channel to complete this bottoming formation. Ideally, any price move below $1250 is a gift for skilled traders. We’ll just have to wait to see where this bottom sets up before we know just how low Gold will fall before the next leg higher.
We believe the next upside price leg in Gold will push prices above $1400 initially, likely in May or June 2019. After that peak is reached, we believe a period of rotation and a potential for a price decline is very real. We believe this next leg higher will really to levels above $1400, then price will stall and retrace – possibly retracing back to levels below $1300 again. It would be at that point that skilled traders should consider this the last opportunity for long entries before the bigger move to the upside.
Our research into this move, which initiated back in October 2018, has called these rotations almost perfectly. If our newest research is correct, you will have at least two opportunities to enter fantastic long trades in Gold and Silver, one setup hitting between April 21 and April 28 and another setup after the initial upside price rally retraces (likely in June or July 2019). After that last retracement, we believe the bigger upside rally will begin and both Gold and Silver will initiate a rally that could be an opportunity of a lifetime for skilled traders.
