I think that the Metals and Miners Bull Market has just began and we are very close to the point of recognition of a new bull market which should give us an idea of what to expect going forward. As we have already seen in the past the first phase of a bull market is frustrating as many investors usually lose their positions too early and are therefore often left behind. This is how bull market works. Charts are telling me that Metals and Miners are on the verge of a massive breakout which could be the point of recognition of a new cyclical bull market.

On the long term chart the Gold/XAU ratio has reached its Base Pattern Target and reversed to the downside. On the next chart you can see that the Gold/XAU ratio is very close to break below the neckline of a massive Head and Shoulders Pattern and also to break through a 3 year support channel trendline. Once these trendlines are broken, a point of recognition of a new bull market should be valid and a new impulsive leg up in Miners and Metals should be launched. You can also notice that the Gold/Silver ratio chart just broke below its long term support which is a bullish sign for the Complex Metals. Silver is outperforming Gold.

On the chart below you can see that the Miners Indexes are also on the verge of a breakout of a huge Inverse Head and Shoulders Pattern. This breakout would be also a point of recognition of a new bull market in Miners.

On the following chart you can see that Silver is leading Miners and Gold as it already broke out of a Triangle Pattern and the HUI Index (Miners Index) breakout should be the next one, followed by Gold. Both Miners and Silver are outperforming Gold which is what I like to see in a healthy Metals bull market.

When a point of recognition occurs, price action usually reveals a new bull market which should outperform the other markets. On the following chart you can see that the HUI/SPX ratio broke through a 3 year trendline resistance and is currently forming a possible Double Bottom Reversal Pattern. A break above the upper dashed red trendline would validate this reversal pattern and should bring more investors in the Miners sector. When this breakout happens, the Miners should outperform the SPX Index.

Metal and Miners are currently at a key juncture and are very close to print a point of recognition of a new bull market. Price action will be very important in the coming days to valid this new cyclical bull market. Our first leveraged positions on May 30 in Metal and Miners seem to be taken very close to the bottom and I think that it is not the time to sell these positions but on the contrary, to hang on during corrections in order to run all the bull market and to make nice profits. Keeping in mind the big picture to control our emotions is important at the beginning of each bull market.

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.
