CTA Trading Desk Morning Report

[7:00am ET] Good morning.

The US Dollar is weak this morning and equities, precious metals and commodities are strong.

China’s central bank has implemented a program of QE.…

London’s Banks and Miners & Oilers are well up on the day.



Have a good day.

Good morning, Geoff here.

The Euro is up this morning and gold is following suit.

As you know, we are long-term gold bulls and have been bullish in the short term for weeks.

Here are a few ratio charts that show “risk-on” for gold and the miners. These charts show you when to push on the gas and when to slow down. They have been accelerating.



Weeks ago, we were talking about how severely depressed sentiment was on the precious metal stocks and how that was the time to get in, not get out of them. We showed you the following chart as a reason to buy the miners.

It is a few weeks later and so far, so good:


However, for more participants to enter the space, we would like to see the following charts improve as noted:



For gold to get the big “green light” it has to move over $1652. The first step to a big upside move for gold is shown in the following chart as a break above downtrend line “A”. Then, it needs to move above resistance “B”. If those two things happen, we will be really close, if not at, the time the 200 DMA and ADX both turn higher which is anther bullish sign. At that time, it will be lift-off for gold:


So, the Euro is in rally mode this morning and if that can continue for a few more days, we may see many more traders jump on the precious metals bandwagon creating “lift off”.

(FD: we are long gold and gold related securities)

Have a great trading day!

    • Pick The Right Dog CollarYou need to look at your best... [#112462]
      By: fame6o9e (4 comments) Go to top ↑

      Pick The Right Dog CollarYou need to look at your best friend’s behavior before deciding which style of dog collar to buy. If you are taking your dog to a special event or to a special gathering and you want them to look really good try getting a dog hound collar and leash. For small dogs a simple flat collar will suffice. For larger dogs you might try a prong collar with a wide leather band.

      If your dog loves water and water sports you should buy a nylon collar. Anything else will not hold up as well to constant immersion in water. Leather is ok but it will crack and age quickly unless it’s dried and polished after each dipping.

      Some Dog Collar Types and their uses

      Buckle collars are usually adjustable and do not tighten on your dog’s neck once fastened. Using a rolled leather collar avoids the chafing or hair breaking that can occur using flat collars.

      Leather is an advantageous material for a dog collar. It is very strong, head wearing Jordan Shoes, weather proof and comfortable for your best friend. There are flat collars for dogs with shorter hair, and rounded collars for longer haired dogs. As mentioned above this is to stop breaking the hair around your dogs neck. Try and keep the dog collar as thin as you can while maintaining the strength for your dogs comfort.

      Another type of collar that can also look fancy is called the Elizabethan fancy dog collar. This type of collar is for dogs recovering from surgery. Basically it is the funnel shaped and it goes over your best friend’s head keeps them from biting stitched wounds or surgery incisions. If your best friend does have to wear this type of collar there is no need to be embarrassed, you can make the best of it by painting it, or decorating it with colorful decorations, stick on synthetic gems or even ribbons!

      Electronic collars are also called remote collars or shock collars by those that don’t like them. The idea behind these collars is to deliver an electric shock to the hound as a correction. A low-level shock is given at first but if the canine continues to disobey the intensity is increased.

      It has been said that using an electric shock collar desensitizes the pet to the shock but they still prove to be effective training collars. Electronic collars should only be used for training and should never be used without a professional trainers guidance. Incorrectly used, these collars can ruin a hound’s self confidence, good will and any desire to work.

      The head collar is similar to a figure of eight with a strap around the neck directly behind your dog’s ears and above his Adam’s apple. The second strap fits around his nose, close to the eyes and back of the lips. The straps are connected under your best friend’s chin.

      The action of the leash when correcting your best friend is very different with a head collar verses any of the other training devices. So it’s important that you receive proper instruction on its use from a qualified trainer.

      Most trainers use the pinch collar as a last resort and only for very short periods of time. As with the slip collar, attaching tags Cheap Air Jordan Shoes, tying your pet up and general unsupeervised use of pinch collars should be avoided.

      If you take your dogs hunting dog Tracking systems are very helpful in finding dogs that are lost. Certain dog tracking systems also allow the dog handler or owner to determine what your canine is doing by using certain behavior systems that form part of the collar. You will be able to tell if a hound has stopped, is still moving, if a dog is barking, or if he has treed an animal.

      One of the essentials of a dog collar is to make sure that it’s personalized and has your dogs name and your contact details on it. This will make it easy for someone to get in touch with you if your dog gets lost or strays.

      It can also help keep your best friend calm in a distressing situation. Your dog is lost and while he may be amongst strangers, they will learn his name from his collar and he’ll feel less threatened if called by name.

      Finally pick a canine collar that suits your dogs personality and size. A giant black leather collar with studs may not suit a toy poodle Cheap Jordans For Sale, or a pink ribbon style collar a British Bulldog. After all it is part of your dogs image so pick a hound collar that fits!

    Re: But… am still wondering… did any other folks on this blog find Graifer’s post # 112092 objectionable… or at least rather distasteful ?? … And… anyone else concerned about about the ban, including rationale, of Cornerstone from this blog-site??

    I missed most of the latest episode between Vad and CornerStone, but after reviewing it with five others who work hard to keep this blog going and who are responsible for maintaining the quality of the discourse, I can say that all of us agreed that that person was continuously objectionable, not for the content, which was occasionally quite good, but for the lack of respect given others. After eight and a half years I can say that we have a functional community. There have been over a million unique visitors and participants, and maybe ten, if that, have been banned over the years. In every case I can recall, the individual was self-centered and showed a lack of respect for others.

    As for Vad’s comment #112092, I didn’t understand it.

    As to my not wanting to have political commentary here, that’s not true. I do it myself. At times, however, I find the subject gets too personal, which leads to flame attacks that I ask people to tone down or stop.

    Bottom line: I’m very pleased with how the discourse here has developed over the years. Nothing’s ever perfect, and with so many differing points of view from so many people of different countries, cultures, religions, etc, there will always be negatives, but in this case I think we’ve done an admirable job, and I thank all of you.

          People often mistake “political” commentary with inflammatory nonsense.

          It’s possible to discuss how the current president and his policies are affecting markets and the investment climate without drifting into punditry and total nonsense.

          Further to this, people continually blame leaders for things that were set in motion long before they came to power. Power structures are more often than not the more appropriate targets, why isnt there more discussion on how the role of the president and the legislation a majority in the House can lead to certain laws, or how different branches of government have for decades gradually eroded rights and proven corrupt after every successive scandal.

          Focusing on the actors is what the media want us to do, its called “Horse Race” Journalism, talking about the election, or how different senators will vote for a particular bill.. all done to avoid actually examining the root of the problem and a solution.

          Vad – I think I first used the term “chihuahua position” on this site. The credit, however, goes to Alex Elder, who is a very witty and all-around good guy, as well as a great chartist guru.

          Here is where the term came from. Alex had a friend in the Dominican Republic who had large guard dogs to protect her estate. BUT, it seemed that an intruder never woke up the big dogs.

          SO, the lady bought a high-strung little chihuahua who awoke upon hearing any strange noise. The chihuahua’s barking awakened the big dogs, whose barking scared away intruders.

          Alex advocates taking a “chihuahua position” in a stock you want to watch closely. Once it is on your screen, any move in the price will “wake you up” … LOL

        Good morning, 4ever. Yes, all of the ‘ small ‘ bio’s posted are exactly that – an investment. Long ago, I decided to make my ‘ investments ‘ in the companies that I hoped could make a difference in this world. Some worked out, others did not. So many ( myself included ) certainly took losses in certain high-fliers in the early 2000′s. Some are still around, others bought, others shut-down. A couple of years ago I posted about why I mess with these small caps, when asked. Just because a stock that was $ 60, and now trading for $ 2, does not mean its cheap. But there is One Major factor in my decisions – the stage of development the company is now in. Although those prices in late 90′s and early 2000′s were fantasy ( for most part, ex DNA ( Genentech ) – ) I look at the price valuations Now, and how so much further the pipe lines are along in development and decide to take the risk. That, and the development of DNA and RNA sciences in the past 10 years. Yes, ‘ Hope ‘ is the word I use, but not in the stock trading sense ( as one must weight the facts ), but ‘ Hope ‘ that some these guys can get it right and give people a second chance at life.

      While it is good that the FBI did its job, this guy is small fry, and a sacfricial lamb for the masses.

      I remember the ‘inside’ jokes in the 80′s and 90′s when I worked on Bay St., sort of like the ones we hear about lawyers and sharks. One of the jokes concerned the name of the hypothetical brokerage, “Dewey, Churnham & Howe” when the focus was to grind out at least 5% commissions from your ‘book’.

      But the one that really stuck out in my mind back then, and is especially relevant now, went like this: “Welcome to (name of any HB&B firm), where Your money and the HB&B experience will soon turn into HB&B’s money and YOUR experience.”

      Consider what happened at MF Global – what was once an inside joke has become today’s reality.

      Silver has a much higher beta than gold. If this continues, if the gold premium continues to exceed silver, it would suggest a clear signal that at least some market participants are pricing in an unusual financial event.

    Broke resistance today in the opening. The resistance was quite significant as it had not only a gann level and fibb retracement, but I recall someone mentioning there was also an ema at around 3.70.

    I haven’t been able to find any news report that could have supported this jump, however I believe that this large jump is due to breaking the resistance. I bought some this morning due to this break, however I am being cautious as I do not yet know of the reasoning behind the initial move.

    If it is able to hold above the resistance of 3.60, it now has a strong support at that level, and a new fibb retracement resistance at about 4.00.

    If I see it fall below 3.60, I will dump the shares that I have.

            MUX has a mind of its own. Bear in mind that when it was UXG it was around the $9 mark in April 2011. It can return to that price again but it also has this terrible habit of surging and selling off dramatically, and no one can figure out why. Its still not clear to me why it dropped from $9 to this day. Anyway, for this reason alone, depending on who is jumping onto the stock (is it institutional investors algorithms buying in and selling?) , MUX can fly high or soar low. For me I’m just sitting out a huge drop since I went loyally long with UXG/MUX and suffered. People speak highly of McEwen, so its not unreasonable to assume, given his plans for the company and that he is a hard working and clever individual, it can return to those prices again. But do you have the nerve for such a roller coaster when there are much more stable investment choices out there?

            Its still not clear to me why it dropped from $9 to this day.

            Actually there was one more symbol prior to UXG and I bought the company the first day that McEwen announced he was CEO of US Gold. On that day you could buy shares for $0.65, whereas the prior day it closed at $0.35. What was that symbol USGLF??? I think so but it has been awhile …

            Anyway, aside from ROB POWER what McEwen had promised was to consolidate the Carlin Trend by buying up some eight exploration companies in Nevada. Off the share price went UP & UP & UP on that basis. As I recall he failed to buy them all as one or two held out. Then the first drill results started to come in and that’s when I sold. The business model McEwen built the entire company around crumbled. Next thing I knew he was in Mexico. Now he’s in Argentina, even more south of the Carlin Trend. The Carlin consolidating never panned out. That is why the shares crashed from $9 to where they are today. Not rocket science or mysteries or shorts, just plain old fundamentals of a failed business plan. How often do you hear about the Carlin Trend now? Luckily for shareholders McEwen pulled a rabbit out of his hat in Mexico and Argentina or else the shares would be even lower than they are now. That is the mark of a good CEO aside from owning 20% of the company! Still I took my 1200% gain and moved on …

    Placebo Effect Rivals Steroid Benefit for Asthmatics;

    One of the more interesting items I came across in the video series was the statement that the placebo effect is up 100% in the past 30 years – that’s an average effectiveness rate from 30% 30 years ago to an average 60% effectiveness today. Susan Joy Rennison stated that this is messing with the heads of the pharmaceutical industry in a real way – but the information is not exactly being put out there for the public to notice – actually most of the public probably would not notice anyway hehehe.

    edit – Bas; Very interesting – maybe that is why the bio’s are getting the attention. Rennison mentioned specifically the older drugs can’t compete with the placibo.

    HD – just put a little tiny short on.
    COH – continue to hold puts
    GLD – sold sept calls – holding Oct calls
    DNDN – remains in the 7/31/12 gap – looking for more upside I hope!

    To an extent, the market is trading on the belief that more easing is coming (China, Europe)…

    The more the belief in easing with attendant market rallying, the less likely the Fed (election year, new highs nearby) actually does ease. IIRC, Bush I blamed Greenspan for not easing for his loss to Clinton.

    While SPX is working its way through 52 week highs, the spanish IBEX is trying to nose its way through the falling 200 MA. This is the third day of hovering beneath the 200. If it gets through, that should be a positive sign for europe. A hopeful note is SAN (santander bank) which has moved above its 200 MA just this morning. If it is true that banks lead these sorts of rallies, I think this bodes well for risk on in general. ($ESDOW is another spanish market index that is updated in realtime; $IBEX is only updated EOD on stockcharts)

    Positive moves are continuing in both bonds and stocks of all the PIGS this morning. That tells me money continues to flow into these countries. Rising yields in long bonds of safe haven countries is another bit of evidence of risk on trading.

    I almost forgot to mention, $XEU gapped through its declining 50 MA.

    I have no position.

The ‘ powers that be ‘ decided to run it down to $ .50 cents, although the company insiders were buying heavy at $ 2.00 and down. The 1 for 6 reverse split was necessary to survive in the ‘ market ‘. Those that followed it knew the potential. Only time will tell, but this one is a good example of a company doing what it takes to keep their dream and ‘ hope ‘ alive…. all the best, baz.

    Can anything come of of this that can propel the markets tomorrow? I feel it may only be a neutral to negative. With the SPX touching 4 years highs this morning and Lockhart saying this morning he is now in the No-QE camp, anything pointing to QE in the minutes (from July) may be ignored. I see further consolidation and maybe gold selloff back to 1600.

    “Atlanta Fed President Dennis Lockhart in a speech today kept further monetary ease in the “iffy” column. He noted that it is still appropriate to keep the fed funds rate exceptionally low through 2014. However, he stated that it is not appropriate to use monetary policy too aggressively without fiscal reform. He views recent economic data as firmer. Repeating earlier positions, he says it is appropriate to weigh costs and benefits of any additional stimulus. Essentially, Lockhart is keeping options open but does not appear to be leaning toward new policy moves. “

      Once again a regional Fed president intervened to upset the market. Why are these people always in our faces? Are they afraid that independent traders and free capital markets are bad for America?

      What we need is for Dennis Lockhart and his colleagues to speak up in the regularly held FOMC meetings, and for the minutes/reports to more fully communicate their views. Otherwise, we need a sole spokesperson for the Fed and we need to hear from him or her not more than once a quarter, if at all.

      Btw, the Weekly EMA for $XEU (Euro) is now 139.92 and the latest price is 124.70. The typical cycle following a cross-over of the kind we’ve had this week lasts some six to 13 weeks or longer. I think there may have been a significant trend reversal that favors a rising Euro — as I pointed out a couple weeks ago was possibly happening.

      There are no absolutes when trading, but this is an important process that may be unfolding.

    I wonder how many of us realize that Barrick’s founder and chairman Peter Munk is now almost 85, and that when he dumped CEO Aaron Regent in June this year he also installed John Thornton, the chairman of the Brookings (er Rockefeller) Institution and a former president of Goldman Sachs, as co-chairman of the Board.

    Because we can REALLY feel good about our clown – Phyllis Diller! She lived here for many years in a leafy suburb:

    And 10 miles west, lived Todd Achin’ – whose medieval ideas about women MAY just save Missouri from passing control of the Senate to the Plutocrat party.
