Gold and HUI Divergences? or Telling the Real Story

Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012 Apr 15, 2012 - 08:27 AM GMT

By: WavePatternTraders


Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhilst the US markets continue to whipsaw around, I have been turning my attentions to finding other ideas for solid setups, trades that we can limit small risk and find potentially profitable trades.

As the US markets continue to play havoc with traders, we have been turning more and more to cleaner much more safer markets, such as the FX markets as well as the precious metals.


Originally I was using this chart to find a high in gold way back in September 2011, it was one of the reasons I was very vocal about the gold rally as I was tracking a pattern from the 2000 lows in the HUI, and called a top near $1845.

As you can see they pretty much have followed each other for the past 10 yrs or so.

Look in the insert, you can see how this hit the measured target and reversed hard, its fell a considerable way from the bullish heights, when traders loved gold and gold stocks.

Looking back it's so easy to say well it was a blow off move in gold, yet saying that it was one, is a little different to actually having faith that it was a blow off. It's tough going against the herd at times, especially when the herd is so one sided, being bearish on gold and gold stocks in September 2011, felt like I was a criminal, although I seldom let public opinion matter, as with my work I trust it 100%, I stuck to my analysis and it paid off.

The insert clearly shows the rejection on the HUI, at exactly the point gold topped.

Look carefully you will note the obvious H&S that most technicians have already made known in public, however, that don't concern me too much, what is a problem for me to be bullish on gold stocks, is the fact that the "granite floor" has gave out and its failed to get above.

That is not an encouraging sign; its feeble attempt so far, is a problem for the bulls.

The divergence between the HUI and gold is alarming, and I suspect there is a great arbitrage setting up.

is about to see a sustainable move lower and break $1600, or the HUI I suspect is setting up to break above the "granite floor".

Both markets require careful monitoring.

One way to take advantage of a decline in the HUI is through DUST.

You simply buy DUST if you see a rejection in the HUI at resistance, whilst the HUI is below the red lined area, the tape is a bearish looking tape, bulls need to find their "mojo" soon or I see a trip to the initial support zone around 375 on the horizon over the coming weeks.

The recent bounces in gold and silver have been weak and I suspect a failed attempt would be seen, well Friday saw a reversal from targets areas well before they broke lower, and in fact yielded a nice trade in silver. Gold followed as well although it was not as aggressive as silver. Those were very simple trades that were nailed to the tick and rejected from our measured move targets.


Until gold gets above $1680 the bulls have to deal with that resistance area and the trend short term is down from the Feb 2012 highs.


We are working some ideas that still potentially require a little bit lower, in order to help confirm if the suspected correction is nearly over from the Feb 2012 highs.

Traders were very bullish at those highs whilst we were getting out of longs and looking to sell the move lower, I see some bearish signs still around, it's almost like traders don't trust the moves.

Now I won't sit here and write that it's incredibly bullish that most traders appear to be bearish on silver and gold atm, it's natural for traders to feel the worst and bearish at the lows.

But we are tracking some ideas and if they come off, if could surprise many traders.

Although every trade comes with risk, but I am sure that as long as we control risk we can find a way to profit whichever way it decides to move.

If you're interested in following the ideas in gold, silver and HUI, both long term and short term, then I encourage you to either sign up to one of two packages that we have to offer. It's probably the best $15-$20 you will ever spend on market analysis, but then I am biased, don't take my word for it, test drive the service.

Until next time.

Have a profitable week ahead.
