Bitcoin Swings Down to Support

Come on! Seriously do you think a 400% rally for Bitcoin was going to be given to the public easily. Without any pain! Come on muppets!

The uniformed (public) buy when price is rising or breaking new highs, the informed buy when price is falling or breaking lows.

The informed have to do it this way as they are large volume players and the only way they can buy large volume is to create chaos. The chaos brings to the market the weak holders and a forced sell. Price is moved to where the volume can be accumulated, in a bull trend that is down to critical support.

Of course if price is in a true bull market the 'chaos' created should not break critical long term trend signals, the short and intermediate term signals are fair game. The next few weeks will confirm or deny the large players position on the trend of this market, bull or bear. Time will tell. 

It is very typical that these price support tests are around option expiration (Jan 21/28) and FED FOMC decisions (Jan 26), just enough chaos to get the desired response from policy makers.

US Dollar Short Term Cycle Peak Near - Update

The short term US Dollar cycle peak is upon us, it is time for capital flows to rule the direction of the DXY.

Previous Post: US Dollar Short Term Cycle Peak Near

Capital flows and interest rate differentials move currency around.

If capital flows take over, then they DXY is going into the 80's at least. Of course hiking rates 4 times is easier on the world when the DXY is near 80 rather than 95. A lot if US debt held by emerging markets is at risk otherwise. And yes a lower US dollar in early 2022 helps China out, as it supports world demand, and in late 2022 Chinese stimulus is expected. Nice!


The US dollar cycle is rolling over in the short term.


Some people do not want the US dollar to fall as it has been great to be long the US Dollar trades. JP Morgan Jamie Dimon says he could see 6 to 7 rate hikes in 2022. Of course silver shorts unwinding will not be great for the Bank of America and/or JP Morgan. There are too many open trades requiring the US dollar to stay trending higher. Oops, looks like a leadership change is about to occur in 2022. 

This sector is worth watching.

Gold stocks

2022 is going to be fun!

Here is how Silver gets to $100

Why not, silver to $100. Here we will use the same play book as the BearStearns 2007 bust, after all history does rhyme.

Reference Ted Butler articles: Another Stunning OCC Report, More Serious Than I Thought

Extract from 'More Serious Than I Thought.

..."The seriousness of this issue is rooted in the scale of the numbers. If Bank of America is short 800 million oz of silver, as the data in the OCC report strongly suggests, then that means every dollar higher in the price of silver translated into an $800 million open (unrealized) loss. Every $10 move equates to an $8 billion loss. A hundred dollar move higher from here equates to an $80 billion loss. Can BofA fund such losses or will taxpayers be called upon to bail the bank out? Even the slightest hint of such a development should be enough to require immediate clarification from the regulators and BofA and there’s a lot more than the slightest hint in the OCC report."...

Comment: @TaviCosta Interesting how it’s actually quite normal for gold to struggle after breaking out to new highs. We saw a similar price behavior in 1978 and 2008. More importantly: During both times, gold prices came screaming back and immediately resumed its long-term trend.

Comment: @TaviCosta Economic deceleration is likely coming from Asia and spreading to the rest of the world. We are now seeing a significant number of negative surprises in the macro data relative to estimates.So now I ask: If economic growth continues to decelerate while inflation remains historically elevated, what will the Fed do? The set of monetary and fiscal policies needed to fix one problem would worsen the other.

Comment: @TaviCosta Now imagine adding Brainard to this: • +400B of QE • 0% rates • Twin deficits/GDP at double digits • No capex growth among commodity producers • Green revolution & ESG policies in full mode This is a macro regime change & gold remains historically undervalued.

Comment: @TaviCosta Time for some quick math: The monthly price of gold is now above its 2011 highs. If miners were to re-test the same levels, it would imply a 61% appreciation from here. Don't forget: The fundamental story behind these companies today is unquestionably better than back then.

Crypto heading higher

The end of the year is here. Central banks have made their moves, big money is looking for the next 100% move and Crypto looks like it has higher highs in store.

The 2021 world wide interest rate changes are minimal, and the negative yield (interest rate less head line inflation) is deep therefore the cost of capital remains very low. The oil price peak suggests inflation will soon peak and roll over. Wages are slowing creeping higher but do not hurt yet. Chinese credit impulse (Chart 3) has bottomed and looking to turn up. The first 6 months of 2022 looks great for higher risk on assets. 

The recent 7 month consolidation of Crypto has allowed many who missed the break out from the March 2020 lows to accumulate and soon higher highs will reward those who held on.

Chart 1 - Bitcoin loves to bounce off the green channel lines.


Chart 2 - Ethereum has been holding well to the blue channel lines.


Chart 3 - Chinese Credit Impulse looking to turn up

US Reserve Asset vs Gold and Silver

Gold and silver move relative to US interest rates and the US Dollar.

So lets use a custom index of US dollar and US 10 yr interest rates and see what happens.

Gold and Silver stock cycle bottom near

There are some regular cycles at play with the Gold and Silver stock leaders.

The metal stocks cycles in Australia lead the rest of world metal stocks. This is because you can make gains on the stock prices as well as the currency price (AUDUSD), this is the worlds first go to gold stock.

The US FED has just announced inflation is not transitory but is structural. This opens the door for inflation hedging strategies, and gold and silver stocks will be part of this play.

Chart 1 - This shows ASX Newcrest Mining near cycle lows, this is important as Wyckoff logic investors will be watching for 'whale' buying and accumulation swings up and down. Yes we may see a few more weeks of price moving along range bound lows but the cycle does say 2022 Q1 should be the start of higher prices for this sector. The red and green cycles do have a good track record, so why not now. Keep an eye on the cycle.


Chart 2 - XAU cycle lags NCM cycle. Please notice how well it cycles.


Chart 3 - XAU channels show the path way forward.

Gold and Silver still working higher

Using Gann Angles from zero we can time the next run up, and it is near.

The last two days gold and silver are down on the back of central bankers talking the US Dollar higher in a attempt to off set inflation. A rising dollar is a form of tightening. Also the talk of a faster 'taper' has sent interest rates higher. But Luke Gromen knows this cant not last.

@LukeGromen Externally-financed twin deficit nations with insufficient external financing (ie the US, not Japan) cannot abide rising real rates for long.

RTT Comments: What this means a higher US Dollar makes it harder for those outside the US to buy the vast quantity of US Treasuries. 

US dollar based debt has jumped from $200T to $330T in one short year. Higher US interest rates will hurt those who have to pay on these loans. The US Government interest expense is sky rocketing, the interest expense is equal to the US Defense budget.

If the trend continues stuff will begin to break. Jay Powell has just been re appointed as Fed Chairman and you can bet a deal was done with the DEM's the FED must not let the markets blow up before US Mid terms late 2022. Interest rates can not go too much higher, the Feds fat finger is near. More money printing is near.
