Which Shines More: Gold, Silver
by Chris Vermeulen
Last week gold and silver
remained in a trading range moving sideways, while crude oil had a large
pullback on very heavy volume. Below are charts which will show where these
commodities stand in relation to support and resistance as well as where we may
be looking to go long in the near future.
Intermediate Trend of Gold – Weekly Outlook
Gold found support back in October and has since had a nice rally higher. The
weekly chart shows this rally/bounce very clearly. Currently gold is trading at
a resistance level, which is the downward trend line. Gold hit its head and has
now started to move lower. The Stochastic indicator at the bottom of the chart
is also indicating we are at a short term top. This is not a good time for longs
to be entering or adding new positions of this metal. Waiting for a pullback and
reversal would provide a much lower risk trade as well as more profit potential.

Swing Trading Gold Trends – Daily Outlook
Swing trading gold provides excellent opportunities for making consistent gains
trade after trade. The daily chart provides lots of high probability trades each
year as we buy and sell during cycle’s bottoms and tops. This daily chart of
gold shows how it swings along with our current entry and exit points. By
combining several indicators (Trend Lines, Equities, Bullion Ratio, MACD, and my
Stochastic) and my simple to follow trading model, buy and sell signals are very
clear to a trained eye.
Gold is currently moving
sideways above our support trend line and I am expecting prices to dip lower and
possibly generate another buy signal soon. We currently own 50% of our gold
position as we booked a nice 15% profit on the first half and waiting to add to
our position within the next week or two. There are several criteria, which must
be met as we only want to enter gold trades when risk is under 3%.

Intermediate Trend of Silver – Weekly Outlook
Silver has been holding up very nicely over the past couple weeks and still
looks like it may have a little more room to climb on the weekly chart to around
the $12 level. What I am looking for is a pullback towards the support trend
line and then we will use the daily silver trading chart to time our entry.
Silver is currently floating in between support and resistance right now.

Swing Trading Silver – Daily Outlook
Silver has been forming a nice looking wedge, which generally indicates prices
should continue higher over the intermediate term. We would like to see silver
continue sideways or pullback toward our support trend line before we putting
money to work.

Intermediate Trend of Crude Oil – Weekly Outlook
Crude oil over the past couple of weeks has become more volatile indicating a
shift in momentum could be just around the corner, “Pardon the pun”. We almost
had a trend line break last week but prices sold into the close on Friday. Crude
oil volume has shot through the roof over the past 6 weeks, which is important
to note, as this looks like capitulation volume and buyers are trying to push
sellers higher. The MACD is starting to look like it may cross soon, which
indicates momentum is shifting towards the upside as well.

Swing Trading Crude Oil – Daily Outlook
Swing trading oil provides huge opportunities and after such a long hard selloff
it stands to have a big bounce or rally. Oil has broken it’s down trend line and
has since pulled back to the trend line, as it will now provide support. If
prices can reverse in a controlled manor then we just may get a low risk entry
point any day now. The MACD is showing bullish momentum and in a couple days the
Stochastic should be near the bottom of its range. Waiting for a reversal candle
is important before we put our money to work because technically oil is still is
a very strong down trend.

Swing Trading Gold, Silver and Oil Conclusion:
Gold is currently trading at resistance and showing signs of short term
weakness. We continue to hold our core position until we have a break of our
support trend line. But if we get a reversal candle we will be looking to add to
our position for another leg higher.
Silver looks to be holding
up nicely but it’s currently floating between support and resistance. Risk is
much too high at this level and therefore we will wait.
Crude Oil looks like it
could really pop, as it has been under heavy sell pressure for a long time. Not
only that but because oil is in the new, and individuals around the world are
now following it, it stands a chance for a really big bounce/ rally soon. The
daily oil trading chart is telling us we could have a buy signal any day now if
risk is under 3%.
