Market analysis: DJIA

Only one chart today – the DJIA. This is the daily chart from the past year. It’s good to take the long view. As you can see, if you ignored the noise, and all the naysayers, the Dow Jones provided 3 clear buy signals. First: in late February, price formed a ‘W’ – Wwwinner bottom formation, and broke out, recapturing the 21EMA. That was your entry. Second: in the early July, price broke out of a 3 month consolidation, after a typical fake-out to the downside. Third: This month, when price broke out of 2+ month channel. Will we get another buying opportunity this year? With one month to go, probably not. I will be looking at early next year for the buy.

GOLD

Gold is toast. Gold has been rejected 4 times since peaking in July. The last rejection, the election reaction, didn’t even exceed the previous high. The path of least resistance is now down. The last week has seen a small dead cat bounce. Technicians call this a ‘H formation’. The H is confirmed with a break, which occurred on Friday. Untrained eyes view this action as a pause in the trend, but a H Formation is a continuation pattern…

The Top #5 Most Important Assets

The Future Not For Wimps: It Is For The Sensitive.

Eating a healthy diet is, in fact, a process of becoming more sensitive, and in the process, becoming more self-aware. For example, in my experience, going without eating a cucumber for three months has very little consequence. But if I were to eat white bread, it would throw my hormone levels out of balance and I would have mood swings and elevated levels of hunger for 3 days. I have sensitized by body to the hormone-altering effects of processed wheat. I would also feel similar effects if I were to eat white sugar, red meat, caffeine…and don’t even ask about alcohol: the last time I succumbed to peer pressure and drank a ¼ pint as part of a drinking game, I could not walk in a straight line for 2 days.

Market Analysis: US Dollar, Euro, Pound & Gold

This will be the first market analysis I’ve written here. I’m prompted by a number of people who have asked me “…so where do I invest?” As we come into the end of October – which has been a seminal month – it seems people are beginning to crane their necks, to find themselves standing in the shadow of something very big. This is manifesting in panic and confusion, and will continue to do so. The ‘big thing’ manifests, in an undeniably material sense, in 2017. By the end of 2017, it is probable that wherever you are, is where you’ll stay, and whatever you have, is what you’ll have. We’re in the final weeks where access to resources and global travel is relatively unimpeded, and there remains time yet to gather all you need. This includes money.

Can You Be Homeless And Feel ‘At Home’?

One of the most pernicious mechanisms of modern life is the Mortgage. Why? Yes, we already know that a mortgage is debt, and debt is a form of slavery – this should not be news to anyone. The Mortgage leverages the human desire for a home, with gainful employment, which is the most precarious form of labour.
