Gold / Silver: What This "Large Non-Confirmation" May Mean

Commodities / Gold and Silver 2021 Feb 16, 2021 - 11:41 AM GMT

By: EWI

Commodities

When a trend is strong, related markets tend to move in unison.

However, when a trend is near exhaustion -- either bullish or bearish, "non-confirmations" often occur. This is when one market continues to rise (or fall), but a related market does not.

As a case in point, the Feb. 3 U.S. Short Term Update, an Elliott Wave International thrice weekly publication which provides near-term forecasts for major U.S. financial markets, discussed the details of a non-confirmation between the price action of gold and silver. Here's a chart and commentary:


[Silver] plunged nearly 13% in a matter of ten hours from Monday night to Tuesday morning. The sketchy new stories of an impending "short squeeze" for silver prices were bogus. As we showed in Monday's Update, speculators are net-long a third of all open interest in silver, not net-short as some have erroneously reported.... The push to $30.09, Monday night's high, [was a] move not confirmed by gold, creating a large 5½-month non-confirmation. Fractured trends are often unsustainable.

Making portfolio decisions based on "sketchy news stories" can get speculators into hot water.

As Bloomberg reported on Feb. 2:

A single block of $30 June calls in iShares Silver Trust (SLV) sold for $3.4 million on January 28. Yesterday the same block was worth about $1.2 million.

Keeping your eye on a financial market's Elliott wave pattern can help you avoid such financial missteps.

That doesn't mean that the Elliott wave model can foretell the future to a "T," however, here's an insight worth knowing from the Wall Street classic book, Elliott Wave Principle: Key to Market Behavior, by Frost & Prechter:

Although it is the best forecasting tool in existence, the Wave Principle is not primarily a forecasting tool; it is a detailed description of how markets behave. Nevertheless, that description does impart an immense amount of knowledge about the market's position within the behavioral continuum and therefore about its probable ensuing path.

We've already learned that a non-confirmation suggests a trend turn is ahead.

Now, learn how Elliott wave analysis can provide you with even more precision for spotting key junctures in the chart patterns of the financial markets in which you are interested.
