Bullish Metals Ratio Charts Indicating a New Healthy Bull Market

First of all, it is important to keep in mind that Miners are extremely undervalued and the down move in Metals was a cyclical bear market within a secular bull market which means that the primary trend is up. Bullish price action and bullish patterns have been taking place since several weeks in Miners and Metals. You can see on the following charts that the HUI/GOLD ratio bottomed almost at the same level as in 2000 which was a major bottom for the Miners Index.

Below you can see that the Gold/XAU ratio chart is currently showing a possible Head and Shoulders Pattern which indicates that Miners are outperforming the Gold Metal. The Gold/Silver ratio long term chart made a false breakout of an Inverse Head and Shoulders Pattern. A false breakout often generates a strong move in the opposite direction.

On a closer view you can notice that the Gold/Silver ratio chart made a Double Top Pattern and broke below the neckline of a Head and Shoulders Pattern. The Gold/Silver ratio backtested the neckline and is currently making new lows which is also a bullish sign for the Complex Metals. Miners are outperforming Gold and Silver is outperforming Gold, which is what we want to see in a healthy Metals Bull Market.

On the following chart you can see that the XAU Index backtested strong supports and prices reversed to the upside. The Domed House and Three Peaks Chart Pattern has also been entirely completed at point 10 several weeks ago and the price action reversed strongly to the upside at point 10.

The Gold Metal has strong support channels around $1220-$1230 and Silver broke out of a Falling Wedge Pattern.

The big picture of all the Complex Metals is showing bullish consolidation patterns. Corrections often end with Falling Wedge or Expanding Wedge Patterns. Silver and Platinum are forming Falling Wedge Patterns and Gold is forming an Expanding Wedge Pattern. You can also notice that Copper is very close to break out of the Falling Wedge Pattern like Silver. Palladium is leading with new highs which is also bullish for the Complex Metals.

On a closer view you can see that Miners rebounced as expected on the 78.6 Fibonacci level. The Miners Junior Index (GDXJ) is leading as prices already broke above the apex of the Triangle Pattern and also above the declining trendline resistance.

Gold has an important resistance zone at $1290-$1310, a breakout above $1310 should send it at much higher prices around $1550-$1600.

It has been several weeks that the price action has been showing us bullish patterns in Miners and Metals ratio charts. We therefore took long positions in Miners and Metals for the intermediate term trend (JNUG 3X leverage is already up 80%) as I think that it is important to respect what the market is telling us and to look for clues that reverse the trend. Charts are showing that the cyclical bear market has ended and the secular bull market primary trend has still a lot of upside potential.

There is no Holy Grail in trading, but I have found that compared to all other professional methods the Technique of Cycles is the only one that greatly improves the probability of success. All Market Assets rise and fall in Cycles. Acknowledging the Power of Cycles improves market timing and increases profits. Fortunes are made by identifying a change of trend and identifying a Cycle is the most powerful and the fastest way to do that. Cycle Highs and Lows of most Markets can be identified and most of all, only Cycles will allow adding the element of time and give a big edge in achieving superior returns.

I decided to create this blog in order to help as many traders as possible to stay in the direction of the trend, make substantial profits with low risk trades and get their freedom secured by financial independence. My trades are of Intermediate Term (3-6 months) and I always use Stops to protect the capital. I devote myself entirely to trading and therefore there is no forum on this blog.

My analysis covers different assets - Market Indexes, such as US, Europe, Emerging Markets, China, Russia etc., Commodities, Currencies (Forex Trading), Bonds and Rates. In addition to the Markets Updates for MC Members, I also post real-time Trading Alerts for MC Leveraged Members for a more aggressive strategy in all the sectors. Besides the market analysis, this site also contains Cycles Count Updates for all Market Assets, including the Forex Market.

My Cycles' tool completed sometimes with institutional technical analyses helps me to determine future Price Action and tells me not only what is most likely to occur in the future but when will it likely occur. Cyclescan accuratelyidentify a change of trend and accuratelytime the buys and sells signals to maximize profits and avoid getting whipsawed too many times. Respecting Price Action and setting up the best odds is Key to be successful in trading.

I sometimes also use sentiment indicators as markets are driven by emotions (hopes, fear, greed, euphoria...) and emotions run in Cycles. Based on the sentiment, the majority of traders think the risk is the highest when something is down. That is why most people do not make money in trading and they have no idea why they failed. The Psychology of the Market is similar to how the crowd deals with emotions, it plays out over and over and speculators use it in their favor. Following Cycles is a true understanding of trends and avoids decisions based on emotional status.

My goal is also to show the importance of knowing and following the Rules. The single biggest way traders lose money is by not following the rules, thinking that this one time there is an exception. Executing the rules is sometimes painful, but essential in order to protect the capital. It is also important not to forget that Patience is key in trading -wealthy traders are patient and spend most of the time watching and waiting patiently for all the factors to come into play in their favor. A longer timeframe increases the chance of success and brings large profits with excellent trading opportunities.

My published studies are not only for the Institutional Investors Community but also for the Individual Investors who want to get a serious edge on the financial market. The Learning Center explains the basic functionalities and definitions of Cycles which helps to better understand my analysis and also to learn how to trade with Cycles. The goal of my website is to help both Institutional Investors and Retailers in the process of finding their freedom.

A constant study of the market is hard work, but it is a source of pleasure for me. Trading is my freedom, but my real happiness comes from the process of the work itself, not from the money that may come with it. The essence of success requires a constant process of learning and growing. The easiest way to make big money is to jump on board the Cyclical Bull Market and those who use Cycles and control their emotions, staying focused on the big picture, will become fabulously wealthy.
