  In this 6 minute video, Gabriel describes how capital markets are “writing history” right now as different asset classes hint at major crossroads. This week’s new high in Gold above $2,000 surpassed Gold’s last high in 2011 and confirms an important early trend change in the USD. The USD is now likely to weaken over the next 10-15 years while physical assets such as commodities and Bitcoin are likely to increase in price.

July 2020 System Quality Number® Report The SQN® Report by, Van K. Tharp, PhD

  There are numerous ETFs that track everything from countries, commodities, currencies and stock market indices to individual market sectors. ETFs provide a wonderfully easy way to discover what’s happening in the world markets. I apply a version of my System Quality Number® (SQN®) score to measure the relative performance of numerous markets in a world model. The Market SQN score uses the daily percent change for input over a 100-day period. Typically, a Market SQN score over 1.47 is strongly bullish and a score below -0.7 is very weak. …

Big R Silver Trade By, Gabriel Grammatidis

With the confirmation of the “EURUSD Long-Term Change in Trend” (see video below discussing this), the USD is about to lose its’ value for potentially the next 10 years. A weak dollar is always great news for precious metals as they are typically negatively correlated.

This Market Rally The Goldilocks’s Zone of Bad News for Continued Fed Stimulus by D.R. Barton, Jr.

  There must be some kind of way outta here, Said the joker to the thief. There’s too much confusion, I can’t get no relief. –Bob Dylan (though best performed by Jimi Hendrix) While these well-known words from the song “All Along the Watchtower” were recorded back in 1967, they seem very fitting for the situation we find ourselves over 53 years later. But the relief which traders want right now is not necessarily relief from the worst pandemic in over 100 years. That would certainly be welcome but traders …

EURUSD – Long-Term Change in Trend? By, Gabriel Grammatidis

  For the last several years, Gabriel has believed the long term downtrend in EURUSD would result in the Euro reaching well below parity eventually with the US Dollar.

In this 10 minute video, Gabriel analyzes the monthly and weekly charts but actually, it’s the daily price pattern right now that will offer the first confirmation of the new uptrend.

Just under half of those new cases came from Los Angeles County and no, this isn’t just because of more testing. The number of Californians hospitalized because of COVID-19 has almost doubled in just two weeks.   Texas is arguably fairing worse. …
