Palladium and the dead cat?

last post on Palladium:

think about it … went to a long term Palladium chart and was able to calculate the low of 80 ish in Jan 1991 (yeah, 30 years ago) and then figured it was close based on the sell off .. well we hit it and YAWN HO HUM I would expect it to EXPLODE off that level … certainly looks like a dead cat bounce to me … hmmm

I like the lower blue level for BIG support and then, perhaps, a chance to buy or get the bounce and exit before it really gets ugly. (hint hint – it isn’t yet)

the Big Short (a pun)

below you will find the SHORT DOW ETF called SDOW. it’s pretty fascinating if you think about it or look at it .. your preference.

basically right around the start of the pandemic around the week of 02/14/20 the volume was HUGE and the SDOW went on a nice run higher. well played … but since then it’s down basically 10X and there is still a lot of buying …

look to the far left and this ETF fell so far and nobody was interested and then last year hit and someone/somebody has been buying and selling this security …

now, of late, if you look closer to the last couple candles and corresponding volume you’ll see that the most BUYING volume ever has come in AND the price as pretty much stabilized at/around the low 30’s ….

you going to BUY SDOW down here …?

YEW ….

Targets for support (hope – a strategy)

support here or soon “should” be expected …

Here’s the link to the ‘targets a plenty’ –

there are also two other posts which mention the target in Dec and then early January. resistance? yes! contagion selling? no! so, here we go …

if we take a look at the 2007-2009 correction we can find harmonics to it and go into the past (I’ve done it) and then PROJECT those harmonics on future support …that’s all the chart below is … we have some “standard” fibo’s coming in but we do have 2 ratios (that’s always good) and for me the most important point is they all land right on the key retracement points … so, very quickly, let’s watch that 10250-10400 for some nice support!

if we swing down to a daily it “appears” (see above title for hope) that we are in a 5th wave down so we ‘should’ (operative word) see a bounce here-soon. also, I haven’t updated it but am watching it like a hawk – the USD vs JPY has NOT seen new lows and if that maintains support this selling will abate.

take er’ easy – Bart

Busy with @seeitmarket coming into the 2015!

Folks, what a wealth of information from Andy @seeitmarket …..

Here’ what I’ve been up to – check out the links and all of the amazing contributors:

  • the Banks … they lead us up and they lead us down.  PATTERNS suggest they are at MAJOR resistance and what this means for the overall market:
  • IBM … a complete laggard.  A case can be made, however, this a stock to own in 2015:
  • Copper … a BUY has been BULLISH for China and we completed an intraday BUY at the end of the year.  Perhaps a nice bounce is coming?
  • the DOW … is it going up into 20,000 in 2015? As my loyal readers, you know I was watching the .618 projection from the all time low at 28.48 and it did not hold at all. so, the logical next target is the AB=CD and, folks, that’s up at 20K+  here’s the link …
  • the TRANSPORTS …the AB=CD got crushed.  so, perhaps higher is in the cards:
  • YAHOO – will it stay or will it go?

Enjoy and bookmark



Cliff Note – besides DIS (which I think I have now found the pattern) the “DOW in charts” from NOV 2013 seems to be working.  it’s amazing that it’s been 6 months.  recommend taking a look at this post and put the current side by side –

Aristotle, Diogenes Laërtius and the Dow Jones

Abstract:  The moral stated at the end of the Greek version is, “this shows how liars are rewarded: even if they tell the truth, no one believes them”. It echoes a statement attributed to Aristotle byDiogenes Laërtius in his The Lives and Opinions of Eminent Philosophers, where the sage was asked what those who tell lies gain by it and he answered “that when they speak truth they are not believed“.[3] William Caxton similarly closes his version with the remark that “men bileve not lyghtly hym whiche is knowen for a lyer”.[4]


DOW JONES COMPONENT SUMMARY: this next week will mark, yet another, very important point in TIME for market to heed.  As seen below, targets and patterns are/have completed (ing) and let make one thing clear.  I am not personally tied to what the patterns are objectively showing.  So, I never have nor ever will “lie” like the fable states above.  I am simply stating the patterns are showing SELL patterns and as one who has said this before, it’s a very very precarious market.  But, w/ full disclosure I have been saying that for a while and the market keeps exploding higher. So, I could be construed as “crying wolf” so to speak.

enjoy the charts and thanks for the comments, questions …

one last — W O L F !!!!!

DOW JONES TRANSPORTATION INDEX: the low on this index was formed before the Industrial average was 45.59 on 10/29/1896.  when we go back into such long time frames we need to let the charts check the validity of this node in time/space. Using this low of 45.59 we find that it held the .382 retracement of the 1987 crash, the .5 retracement of the 2000-2003 low and the .618 (exact OBTW) retracement of 2007-2009.  additionally, as shown by the orange arrows, the “thunderbolt” or “ab=cd” move was exact in resistance at 5537 in 2010 and almost the cause of the 2007 top.  W/ those as our reference points, I believe we can objectively say that we have a good “node” to work from …

the purple arrows are “basic” measured move projections that smack right into an extension pattern in/around 7600.  Additionally, the lighter blue arrows come in around 7535 on the index.  I expect those to be MAJOR resistance areas if not the TOP.  At a minimum, an expectation of a 3500 point decline from those areas (simply the size of the last one) is to be expected.

if we take a look a current levels – 7211 close (and note, closed at the highs) – then another 300 point move or, roughly, 4 percent move isn’t out the question.  expect higher next week into this area of EXTREME resistance.

DOW JONES UTILITY AVERAGE: the Utilities Average has a sell pattern appearing a little higher after a very big monthly sell signal.  while the pattern from the all time low in 1942 is still alive, it will be extremely important to watch this SELL pattern coming into play.  If we fail at this SELL pattern then an attack of the “still alive” target up around 570 could be a reality.  either the SELL pattern or the “still alive” will/should stop it in it’s tracks …

DOW JONES INDUSTRIAL AVERAGE:  back before posting, JC Parets allowed me to “guest post” (thanks) on his site using the all time low on the DOW and our former 2007 top. ( that level was, essentially 15,300 and the DJIA has been bouncing in/around that level for almost 6 months.  that is what THE long term .618 price projection should do – if not be a top or bottom.  but, last week, it gave away and the DJIA took off.  folks, what we potentially have here is a 5 point reverse way pattern on a monthly basis.  IF CORRECT, the bearish implications are very powerful.  trend line resistance exists a little higher, we have a 1.27 extension pattern at 16,308 and the “top of the circle” at 16,827.  I know the “top of the circle” will have people scratching their heads but LOOK at what the bottom of the circle did the last time we were EXTREME in bearish emotion (2009).  It, basically, nailed the bottom.  Would seem natural that the top would do the same…correct?
