Here is a close-up (ST) chart of Gold price vs. 30 year bond PRICE. This close-up shows gold's recent outperformance of the bond price. On a longer term chart gold's turn-around is not quite apparent yet. But when gold price outperforms bond prices, a bull can begin to gallop. Makes sense.

Here is a longer-term chart of POG vs. 10 year bond PRICE. You can't see gold's turnip yet.

BTW, remind me. Which one of these 2 items is in a bubble?

Finally, (signaling that I'm about to shut up), for perspective on that bubble-to-end-all, here is a LT chart of the 10 year bond price. Notice that this chart goes back about 12 or 13 years.

hey up guys,

looks like our Thur/Fri action holds again this week,

good stuff,

what was quite interesting was the lack of conviction to the down,

oil is down so far today, about 66 tics, trying to punch back thru 102 to the down if it can get it

well gentlemen and ladies,

we are on the run again, after weakness in Asia last evening,

now things are starting to pop to the up,

much as we spoke to,

spot ticker market is ahead of the futures market by a bit,

near term futures showing 21.94 in silver while spot is showing 22.08 or above 22 for silver

while near term April Gold is showing 1333.9 and spot ticker 1335.7 on the bid

Re: Relative oddity this am

There were rumors in mid January JPM was shorting the SP and long gold. That's when I figured this sad saga would start to unravel. Posted this somewhere here...



Freaky chart.
Is this model broken yet?

on the weekly silver,

not a lot there until about 23, then with techs pegged and overbought, could see a pullback then a shot at 25,

this might be what the spring holds for us until the summer malaise

definitely a rambling..........

metals doing fine as we all surmised,

yet oil is a problem, up another 1.17 per barrel and now over 103,

with gas prices rising across the nation,

ngas, and oils going up spells long term seize up issues in the economy

BB and I have been discussing this on and off for a spell now,

but neither of us believe in the Chinese miracle as so many oracles will have you believe,

and how this pittance of a MASSIVE DUMPING OF TREASURIES comparatively that we have all heard about, was actually their economy failing and they had to tap their collateral,

that their poli's are talking the markets down on future growth rates,

how the baltic dry is concrete proof of how much product is moving worldwide,

yep, there is gold moving east, of that we can be assured. Yet, I would argue that the quantities espoused are questionable at best. What if someone was trying to make it look like the chinese were sopping up any and all available gold?

etc.

Point being, not all is as it seems IMO, and I don't believe hardly any of the articles we are all seeing re chinaland,

WTF is going on with crude? Serious question. Up a bit again today to almost $103. The below article correlates it with the frigid weather here in North America, but that seems like an easy excuse when demand is normally depressed during the winter. My WAG is that it is primarily a storage and distribution shortfall. If this is correct, therefore people using petro fuels for heat are getting squeezed on supply, and the distributers, speculators, and hedgies are ganging up and piling on the profits in a tight, volatile market. Is this a reasonable assumption?

Oil & Gas Recover From Friday's Sell Off
Posted February 24, 2014 6:09 (GMT)
By FX Empire Analyst - Barry Norman

Friday was a crazy day in the energy markets, with traders selling off to book obscene profits as crude oil and natural gas continued to climb mid session as the winter storm blanketed the US east coast and the weatherman called for more snow and cold throughout the balance of February and into March. Oil price resumed its rally during last week. WTI oil increased by 1.9%; Brent oil, by 1%. Natural gas jumped to the highest price in five years as forecasters warned of more freezing U.S. weather. Hedge funds increased bullish bets on the heating fuel as inventories dropped to the lowest in a decade. Natural gas rose as much as 5.6 percent to $6.478 per million British thermal units in electronic trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange, the highest intraday price since Dec. 3, 2008.

On Friday, Accuweather reported that a series of storms could combine over the Northwest “snow would likely evolve near or along the I-95 corridor, leading to another round of disruptions to travel and daily routines,” it said. About 49 percent of U.S. households use gas for heating, with the biggest consumers in the Midwest, U.S. Energy Information Administration data show. Later in the day the forecast changes both the short term and near term, to a bit warmer and no major storms which pushed traders to sell and book immediate profits after Natural gas surged. This morning gas is trading at 5.133 up by 121 points after declining in the afternoon session in the US on Friday. Gas surged 15 percent during the period covered by the report as winter storms brought snow and below-normal temperatures to the eastern U.S. Forecasts show a polar blast returning to the region this week. Gas supplies dropped to 1.443 trillion cubic feet in the seven days ended Feb. 14, the lowest level for the time of year since 2004, government data show.

Crude oil added 29 cents this morning to trade at 102.49, while Brent oil added 20 cents to reach 110.03 as traders recovered from Friday’s sell off. West Texas Intermediate crude rose from the lowest price in a week amid speculation that cold weather in the U.S. will boost demand for heating in the world’s biggest oil consumer. WTI has risen in the past six weeks, capping the longest run of weekly gains in a year, as crude inventories at Cushing, Oklahoma, fell and cold weather bolstered fuel demand. Another blast of freezing air is forecast for the central and eastern U.S. this week as two storms threaten to bring snow to the Northeast, according to the National Weather Service.

The opening of the southern link of TransCanada Corp.’s Keystone XL pipeline in January eased a bottleneck in the central U.S. Supplies at Cushing, the delivery point for the WTI contract, fell 1.73 million barrels to 35.9 million, the lowest level since Oct. 25, the EIA said last week. Nationwide crude supplies rose 973,000 barrels to 362.3 million in the seven days ended Feb. 14. Heating oil gained 106 points this morning also recovering from the sell off on Friday to trade at 3.0495. It seems that the weatherman cannot make up his mind as to what to expect this week.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Edit to add:
Found this page later, it appears to confirm my assumptions to a large degree. It also provides some TA charts...the trend is up, up, and away, with no immediate, short-term resistance in sight. Well worth a look.

I hear ya pyramid, but the specs are just taking advantage of the situation not causing it IMO,

for instance, Ngas supplies have been drawn down tight tight, and even if winter lets off, there is a real worry about building supplies before next winter.

so the story goes,

as for crude, exporting is kicking us in the drawers,

there is lots of crude around, but people are playing the vig of brent vs lt sweet,

if brent wasn't so much higher, I don't believe this situation of exportation would be so prevalent

looks like we are gonna get hit on turnaround Tues,

taking back yesterdays gains and then some,

The gains Fri and Mon were tepid at best, so we are taking a breather here,

and now need to see if the strength is still in this market for a decent spring run,

as an aside, oil is also getting hit this am, went over 103 yesterday but closed under,

playing peeky boo with it, and now going back to test 102 yet again

one thing to mention of note,

when we had Michael from Apmex on the radio, he was speaking to how they sell out of their allotted quantities of product, and go into the market to get more and satisfy demand.

found it quite interesting that a couple of weeks ago, before this most recent rise, that there was a number of issues with dealers across the board.

most of it seems to me as though it was related to the sheer interest and volume that was going out the door.

Persons were getting their metal, but there were delays, or order mishaps, what have you. All from good solid dealers, who historically have proven their capabilities.

It was as though the backside that we do not see just went nuts with beyond normal business, overloading and causing errors across the board.

Metals showing inherent strength, gold now positive, with silver clawing its way back,

oil though, still down under 102 now, and off 1.50+

must have heard us talking about the fallacy of higher oil vs supply

Somewhat unusual action today, when the USD again bounced off 80, the metals rallied with it.

That natty chart is UGLY.

Don't believe the hype on short supplys for NG. We have a lot of NG production, I talk to the guys on a regular basis, from the dirty grunts to the CEOs. Basically, after NG crashed in 08, they shut down production. They are either just producing enough to tread water (if they are on a shoestring), or only producing with wells that would cause havoc if they shut them down entirely. We're talking below 25% production, some under 10%.

When prices rise, they'll be met with supply, and a lot of it.

found it kind of funny today that it took 2 sec for the silver bears to come out big,

saying exit your longs, and go short

after of course, you have given up 75 pts..........

now they are yappin' that we are going to 19 again right soon,

agreed, we needed to bleed off some oversold condition,

21.06 is the 200 day average that we broke above, and if that cannot hold then it will look for more,

yet 20.50 should be decent support for now, should it want to continue on down for a bit, which is also a 50% retracement of the latest move

gold has been much less dramatic,

broke thru the 200 in a ho hum fashion and kept rising,

200 back at 1305 or so,

she too has been overbought, and needed to bleed some of that off to find some more buyers,

volume was actually a little higher on the down today,

either means more bears than bulls, or real weak longs in play

New Home Sales Saves the Day
Thursday, February 27, 2014

by Nick Mastrandrea of Market Tea Leaves

Good Morning Traders,

As of this writing 5:10 AM EST, here’s what we see:


US Dollar –Up at 80.535, the US Dollar is up 72 ticks and is trading at 80.535.
Energies – April Oil is down at 102.16.
Financials – The March 30 year bond is up 14 ticks and trading at 134.17.
Indices – The March S&P 500 emini ES contract is down 22 ticks and trading at 1836.50.
Gold – The April gold contract is trading up at 1330.20 and is up 22 ticks from its close.


Initial Conclusion: This is a nearly correlated market, unfortunately it's correlated to the downside. The dollar is up+ and oil is down- which is normal and the 30 year bond is trading higher. The Financials should always correlate with the US dollar such that if the dollar is lower then bonds should follow and vice-versa. The indices are lower and the US dollar is trading up which is correlated. Gold is trading higher which is not correlated with the US dollar trading up. I tend to believe that Gold has an inverse relationship with the US Dollar as when the US Dollar is down, Gold tends to rise in value and vice-versa. Think of it as a seesaw, when one is up the other should be down. I point this out to you to make you aware that when we don't have a correlated market, it means something is wrong. As traders you need to be aware of this and proceed with your eyes wide open.

Asia traded traded higher with the exception of the Japanese Nikkei which traded down. As of this writing all of Europe is trading lower.

Possible challenges to traders today is the following:

1. Core Durable Goods Orders m/m is out at 8:30 AM EST. This is major.
2. Durable Goods Orders m/m is out at 8:30 AM EST. This is major.
3. Unemployment Claims are out at 8:30 AM EST. This is major.
4. Fed Chair Yellen Testifies at 10 AM EST. This is major.
5. Natural Gas Storage is out at 10:30 AM EST. This could move the Nat Gas market.

Yesterday we said our bias was to the upside as crude was higher and the Bonds were lower. The net result? The Dow gained 18 points and the other indices gained as well. Today we are dealing with a nearly correlated that is correlated to the downside. If Gold were trading lower I would say it's completely correlated to the downside. Hence our bias is down. Could this change? Of Course. Remember anything can happen in a volatile market.

Yesterday as predicted the markets opened higher, then went lower prior to 10 AM. When the New Home Sales numbers were released the markets took off, went negative at around 2 PM and then went higher after 3 PM but at the end of the day we were in positive territory. One of the benefits of Market Correlation is that it can provide insight as to the trading day ahead. Our goal and objective is to provide you with that insight such that you may have a clue as to what could happen in the trading session for that day. Today we have Janet Yellen testifying before the Senate so it will be interesting to see what she says. If this is anything liken to her last testimony, it may turn out to be a positive day. But as always, time will tell.....

Each day in this newsletter we provide viewers a snapshot of the Swiss Franc versus the US dollar as a way and means of capitalizing on the inverse relationship between these two assets. Futures Magazine recognized this correlation as well. So much so that they printed a story on it in their December issue. That story can be viewed at:

http://www.futuresmag.com/2013/11/25/correlated-opportunities-in-the-swiss-franc?ref=hp


Many of my readers have been asking me to spell out the rules of Market Correlation. Recently Futures Magazine has elected to print a story on the subject matter and I must say I'm proud of the fact that they did as I'm Author of that article. I encourage all viewers to read that piece as it spells out the rules of market correlation and provides charts that show how it works in action. The article is entitled "How to Exploit and Profit from Market Correlation" and can be viewed at:


http://www.futuresmag.com/2013/08/01/how-to-exploit-and-profit-from-market-correlation

As a follow up to the first article on Market Correlation, I've produced a second segment on this subject matter and Futures Magazine has elected to publish it. It can be viewed at:

http://www.futuresmag.com/2013/08/16/how-to-exploit-and-profit-from-market-correlation?ref=hp


As readers are probably aware I don't trade equities. While we're on this discussion, let's define what is meant by a good earnings report. A company must exceed their prior quarter's earnings per share and must provide excellent forward guidance. Any falloff between earning per share or forward guidance will not bode well for the company's shares. This is one of the reasons I don't trade equities but prefer futures. There is no earnings reports with futures and we don't have to be concerned about lawsuits, scandals, malfeasance, etc.

Anytime the market isn't correlated it's giving you a clue that something isn't right and you should proceed with caution. Today our bias is to the upside. Could this change? Of course. In a volatile market anything can happen. We'll have to monitor and see.

As I write this the crude markets are trading lower and the US Dollar is advancing. This is normal. Think of it this way. If the stock market is trading lower, it's safe to assume that the crude market will follow suit and vice-versa. Crude trades with the expectation that business activity is expanding. The barometer of which is the equities or stock market. If you view both the crude and index futures side by side you will notice this. Yesterday April crude dropped to a low of 102.12 a barrel but maintained the $100 a barrel mark. We'll have to monitor and see if crude either goes lower or holds at the present level. It would appear at the present time that crude has support at $101.77 a barrel and resistance at $102.97. This could change. All we need do is look at what happened last fall when crude was trading over $100.00 a barrel. We'll have to monitor and see. Remember that crude is the only commodity that is reflected immediately at the gas pump. Yesterday crude went up dramatically based on the Wednesday inventory numbers. As such I created a video to show how Market Correlation could be used in tandem with a crude trade. The video can be viewed at: http://youtu.be/9VZRInAPusg



Future Challenges:

- Budget - I've been asking why the Executive Branch of government hasn't endorsed any of the Budgets passed by both the House of Representatives and the Senate. On Friday I think I got my answer as the White House announced that it is proposing their version of a budget. This was supposed to be released on March 4th but in order to garner Congressional support, it was released this past week. This version of a budget will clearly attack high net worth individuals as it will cap the amount of retirement income they can squirrel away but a cap on deductions. It will also attempt to bolster retirement income for the Middle Class. It will not touch Social Security as the notion of "Chained CPI" won't pass muster. Why? The GOP hasn't offered any alternative. In all likelihood this budget has virtually no chance of passing as Congress controls the purse strings and with a GOP controlled House, virtually none of these ideas will pass. From a political perspective it does make sense as the mid-term elections are held this year and I suspect the White House wants to bring these issues to the table sooner as opposed to later. If the American people give the White House a Democratic controlled House of Representatives, then it has a chance to get passage on key bills for passage such as the Myra plan. Time will tell how it all plays out...

Crude oil is trading lower and the US Dollar is advancing. This is normal. Crude typically makes 3 major moves (long or short) during the course of any trading day: around 9 AM EST, 11 AM EST and 2 PM EST when the crude market closes. If crude makes major moves around those time frames, then this would suggest normal trending, if not it would suggest that something is not quite right. As always watch and monitor your order flow as anything can happen in this market. This is why monitoring order flow in today's market is crucial. We as traders are faced with numerous challenges that we didn't have a few short years ago. High Frequency Trading is one of them. I'm not an advocate of scalping however in a market as volatile as this scalping is an alternative to trend trading.

Remember that without knowledge of order flow we as traders are risking our hard earned capital and the Smart Money will have no issue taking it from us. Regardless of whatever platform you use for trading purposes you need to make sure it's monitoring order flow. Sceeto does an excellent job at this. To fully capitalize on this newsletter it is important that the reader understand how the various market correlate. More on this in subsequent editions.

'ole yeller didn't affect things too much yesterday other than sm's going up once again,

If CNY is devaluing , does USD have much of a choice? Look what CNY did on 27th and look at USD's response on 28th. Race to bottom.

More important I think is revised Q4 GDP from 3.2% to 2.4%. That is huge in terms of significance.

For all the computer algos and Wall Street economic models, yes.

But the GDP numbers are bogus. They're calculated using the phony CPI, which is blatantly and obviously manipulated and understated.
