Hi Patuca

Bob,

 

silver has sort of a double character,one as a precious metal and one as an industrial metal. So you have quite some exposure to various fields. Fundamentally you mainly have the investors driven by fear of inflation and value safety seeking on one side and industrial demand on the other while the effect of the industrial demand is larger than the investor´s but the latter is growing.

 

There is a shortage of available silver(above ground) compared to the availability of gold since its usually not consumed,but that is by no means reflected in price as gold simply has a greater demand.

 

Politics.....I dont know....some people suggest that prices are artificially held down,but you sure have read such stories,too.

 

I beg your pardon,but I have no clue what you ask in regard to exchange rate?

 

My sentiment which is based only on price action and volume and covers only the next few weeks is that we are in a sideways trading area amid a pullback that hasnt seen its low yet.

 

Again my apologies,but no idea on "Bunker Hunt"

 

The only correlation I see with China is through their industrial demand,recession in China is not a good thing for silver.There are other correlations,too,like copper,dollar index,gold to a degree although that has lessened in recent time.

 

My attitude towards all this is rather distanced as I basically work my book,catch the news for major events and just ride the wave so to say.Silver is highly volatile as its a small market influenced by various factors.I have never been up to watching all of these.I only see use in that if you take long positions for more than 6 months or so and need to do long-term informed decisions.

mexico and central america have lots of internet cafe for about .50 to 1.00 usa dollar per hour so it isquite easy to trade for a few hours from one of these. also usb modems can be bought giving access to internet from a laptop for 2.00 or so day or 25 dollars or so for a month. one can buy 1 hour, 1 day, 1 week, or 1 month for modem use on a usb. of course if traveling in the states many places have free wfi so generally it isn't a problem to get on the net.

yes silver is manipulated. its price is held down. once the shorts unwind it will spike up. i expect to see silver 70 to 100 ounce sometime between now and end of 2013. best thing to do with silver is buy it..take delivery...hide it and when it is the talk of the day take it and sell it.

You've got it in one - Spreadbetting is exactly the same as the bucket shops that Livermore frequented (although no more chalkboards - technology has moved on a bit!). However, unlike bucket shops, which 'bucketed' orders, the UK Spreadbetting companies offset orders (or hedge) using an underlying market (usually futures). They don't off-set every order individually however, so if Mitsubishi goes long at £2 per point on the ES then they're not specifically hedging Mitsubishi's order - they just sit and look at their net exposure in a single market across thousands of trader's positions.

 

The fact that the Spreadbetting company hedges rather than buckets means that, theoretically, there is not the same conflict of interest as their was between Livermore and the bucket shops - a Spreadbetting company is in theory a neutral counter-party.

 

Hope that helps to explain.

thanks for the explanation. looks like a losing game to me. one would be trading against their broker. they are gonna win.

Hi Silver

I trade fundamentals short term.

I am interested in silver. There is no silver in South Africa.

Who is the biggest buyer of silver?

What happens when the biggest buyer stops buying ?:roll eyes:

My impression is the silver market has been flat for a while.

Is there enough movement using TTT to make some money?

Hi misibushi

Its Monday morning 6am

Another week of opportunity dawns.

Chinese PMI figures are up.So commodity prices will steady and rise. And the Rand will weaken against the $.

Its nearly full moon,so the market has reached the bottom of a leg and will rise.;)

Friday is Easter long weedend. So all traders are sellers on Thursday.

Its school holidays.,so volume will be down a bit. That means a flat week.

With all this info, who needs Taylor.

Just popping in for a moment. April 1, 2012 is a BUY day in Taylors scheme of things. I am looking to short, probally in the night session, around 1406. That is, I am looking to short a High made first per Taylors rules. If I get in and for some reason it trades UP then I will take a loss quickly and wait for it to tank out before shorting again. If it starts trading up and has no real decline then I will just stand aside and not take a Taylor trade. That said. I am looking for a decline and it probally will start tonight. Then again, it may not until the day session. Just have to wait and see. Naturally, I will also be looking for 1 to 3 point scalps as I have time to. Don't know when I'll have time to come back on this site but if possible I will try to recap 4-1-2012 trading.

 

Good Trading

Bob,

 

I have no idea who is the biggest individual buyer,at times it may be one of the ETFs.What happens if the biggest buyer´s demand dries up,come on that was rhetorical,wasnt it;)

Silver bulls got shot last time on 2/29 during the speech of one B.Bernanke,since then it is range-bound and I guess it will be for a while. And I have yet to see the first correct price projection of silver higher than 50USD as in my experience someone pulls the plug when the 40USD are reached.

As with any instrument you can use TTT on,as long as you get filled near the low you will make money.

Now I dont know about your account size,but if you want to maintain driving a Maybach,your mansion at the gated-community and all your friends down at the country.club you should not start with less than a 7 figure account size;)

Well hello Mitsubishi,

 

Kudos to you! Congradulations! As Livermore said his sitting tight was where he made the big money. Sitting tight was also where he lost 3 fortunes. Sitting tight is a double edge sword that can cut sharply both ways. :)

 

Now onto some Taylor explanations for todays PA. Great Taylor plays today. As you should know on a buy day you can short and go long. The short was shorty after 3:20 a.m. central time for a grab of 6 points. Then as price reversed shortly after the day session got humming it was time to go long and hang on for the ride up. Because, as you mitsubishi said it is a bull market. The gap up on the open sunday was the market tipping its hand. I was looking for a decline first on 4-2 and got that in the night session. Buy days are great opportunities in Taylor type trading because it is one of the days you can short and go long depending on what price action does.

 

In addition, at least 3 very good long scalps were there. Just a great Taylor day.

In a sense, everyone trades against their broker. Brokers don't have your profitability at heart - their only concern is to generate commissions. As for spread-betting, it's no good for day-trading in my opinion, and for longer term traders it has pros and cons that just about even out.

 

If you trade futures/forex etc and make a hell of a lot of money and then the taxman comes knocking at your door wanting half . . . well maybe then you would start to see some of the advantages to spreadbetting.

Hi Patuca

I like your post

Does this fire alarm set off every day?

 

It depends on the look-back period . . .

 

For a daily alarm, insert the 'FireAlarm' indicator on your chart (I also use an 9-period RSI, a 20-period Dry Powder Extinguisher, and the crossover of a 3SMA and a 12-point Sprinkler System), and adjust the 'alarm period' to 1.

 

Remember to use the session times of your local fire station :)

    • havent done any crypto withdrawals or deposits, maybe support can answer that... Im more if a traditional trader, straight up regular connection tbh. 
    • Date : 19th August 2019. Events to Look Out for This Week. Trade worries remain and are expected to keep flip-flopping between risk-off and risk-back-on sentiment. Hopes for more central bank stimulus vies with fears that a number of major economies are simultaneously heading for recession, with a number of developing-world economies with high Dollar debt levels particularly exposed to the shifting financial cycle. Given these fears, further conciliatory remarks are likely from both China and the US with regard to their trade spat. Nevertheless, next week the economic calendar also focuses on the PMI releases globally.Monday – 19 August 2019   Consumer Price Index and Core (EUR, GMT 09:00) – The Euro Area CPI for July is expected to hold at 1.1%y/y in the final July reading from 1.3%y/y in June. Energy price inflation was clearly largely to blame and the core rate fell back to just 0.9%y/y from 1.1%y/y in the previous month. The core is anticipated to remain unchanged as well. With growth slowing down and the improvement on the labour market starting to fizzle out, chances are that inflation will continue to undershoot the ECB’s target range, thus adding to arguments for a comprehensive easing package in September. Tuesday – 20 August 2019   Monetary Policy Meeting Minutes (AUD, GMT 01:30) – The RBA left rates on hold in its last meeting, after back-to-back rate cuts in June and July, which put the cash rate at a record low of 1.00%, while Governor Lowe said that more easing measures could be needed. Minutes are expected to shed further light regarding future easing stance. Manufacturing Sales (CAD, GMT 12:30) – Manufacturing sales are anticipated to grow 2.0% in June after a 1.6% rebound in shipment values was revealed during May and following a 0.4% decline in April. The surge in transport equipment sales is consistent with the improving economy and as such fits with the BoC’s overall view that the economy is improving after temporary weakness in Q4/Q1. Wednesday – 21 August 2019   Consumer Price Index (CAD, GMT 12:30) – Canada’s CPI did not challenge the outlook for steady BoC policy this year. CPI slowed to a 2.0% y/y pace in June from the lofty 2.4% y/y clip in May. Inflation remains around the 2 percent target, with some recent upward pressure from higher food and automobile prices. Core measures of inflation are also close to 2 percent. Even though CPI inflation will likely dip this year because of the dynamics of gasoline prices and some other temporary factors, the annual and monthly numbers for July are expected to remain steady. As slack in the economy is absorbed and these temporary effects wane, inflation is expected to return sustainably to 2 percent by mid-2020. FOMC Minutes (USD, GMT 18:00) – The FOMC minutes, similar to the ECB Reports, provide an assessment as regards the views of the Fed’s policymakers about the interest-setter’s future stance and are usually a cause for FX turbulence. Thursday – 22 August 2019   Jackson Hole Symposium – Day 1 Services and Manufacturing PMI (EUR, GMT 07:30-08:00) – July PMI readings highlighted manufacturing weakness. This picture is likely to be seen again in the preliminary readings for August, as Manufacturing PMI has been forecast at 46.3 from 46.5 last month, still down from 47.6 in June, and indicates a deepening recession in a sector that has been hit very hard by global trade tensions and no-deal Brexit risks. Meanwhile Services PMI is expected to fall to 52.7 from 53.2. Services and Manufacturing PMI (USD, GMT 13:45) – Preliminary Manufacturing are expected to grow in August, to 51.0 from 50.4, as Services PMIs are likely to fall to 51.7 from 53. New Zealand Retail Sales (NZD, GMT 22:45) – Usually considered an index of consumer confidence and overall consumption in the economy, higher retail sales point to higher consumption and hence higher economic growth which is good for the currency. Friday- 23 August 2019   Jackson Hole Symposium – Day 2 Retail Sales ex Autos (CAD, GMT 12:30) – Retail sales are expected to have decreased in Canada, with consensus forecasts suggesting a -0.5% m/m decline should be registered in June and an unchanged ex-autos component at 0.3%. In May, Retail sales were disappointing, falling 0.1% for total sales and declining 0.3% for the ex-autos component. The decline in sales was driven by a 2.0% tumble in food and beverage stores. The report casts some doubt on the resiliency of the consumer sector to the ongoing parade of worrisome geopolitical and trade developments. Always trade with strict risk management.

    • AUDUSD Market Dragged Lower on Bears Dominance   AUDUSD Price Analysis – August 15 The bears were in full control moving the market lower in the prior session, although in the present session we see the pair found buyers around the level at 0.6748 for the 4th day in a row while the pairs bear dominance is evident falling to lowest close since the beginning of the year.   Key Levels Resistance Levels: 0.7297, 0.7207, 0.7085 Support Levels: 0.6748, 0.6676, 0.6620   AUDUSD long term Trend: Bearish In the bigger picture of the daily time frame, the decline from the level at 0.7207 (high) is seen as resuming the long term downtrend from 0.7297 (February high). Firm break of the level at 0.6876 (low) should confirm this bearish view.   On observation, further fall may be seen to the level at 0.6620 (low) next. On the upside, the break of the level at 0.7085 resistance is needed to be the first sign of medium-term bottoming. Otherwise, outlook will remain bearish even in case of a strong rebound.     AUDUSD short term Trend: Ranging On the flip side of the 4-hour chart, the AUDUSD is staying in consolidation from the level at 0.6676 and it’s intraday bias remains neutral first. On the upside, the break of the level at 0.6827 will extend the rebound.   But upside should be limited below the level at 0.6909 support turned resistance to bring fall resumption. On the downside, the break of the level at 0.6676 may target 100% projections from the level at 0.7085 to 0.6827 from 0.7085 at 0.6620 level reflecting on the daily chart.
    • EURJPY Approached Recent Swing Lows, Likely to Breach the Low of the Year on the Level at 117.50   EURJPY Price Analysis – August 16   The pair depreciated again in value against the Japanese Yen. The currency pair during the mid-week breached both the upper and lower horizontal lines on the moving average 5 and 13 while completing another lap on the low in today’s session towards the low level at 117.50.     Key Levels   Resistance Levels: 123.01, 121.40, 119.91   Support Levels: 117.50, 117.00, 114.84   EURJPY Long term Trend: Bearish The Daily time frame displays the EURJPY at the low, showing the pair is also testing a swing area on the level at the 117.50 to the level at 118.16 below the moving average 5 areas. The price attempted to dip below the area on August 12 to the low for the year on the level at 117.50, but could not keep the momentum going. The swing area was reestablished as support on August 13 and again today   However, buyers are trying to lean against the low level at 117.50, on the retest and hoping for a quick bounce. The trend is showing a bearish outlook in the medium and long term.   EURJPY Short term Trend: Ranging On its Intraday, the bias in EURJPY remains neutral for the moment. With the level of 119.91 minor resistance intact, further decline is in favor. Although a break of the level at 117.50 will resume a large downtrend to the level at 114.84 support next.   However, on the break of 119.91 resistance will indicate short term bottoming. A stronger rebound should be seen to the horizontal resistance line now at 121.40.
    • USDCHF Bounces Off Lower Prices On Correction.   USDCHF bounces off lower prices on correction the past week. This has opened the door for more gain in the new week. Resistance resides at the 0.9800 level. Above here, resistance lies at the 0.9850 level and then the 0.9900 level. Further out, resistance comes in at the 0.9950 level. On the downside, support is seen at the 0.9750 level with a turn below here opening the door for more decline towards the 0.9700 level. And then the 0.9650 level. Further down, support resides at the 0.9600 level. All in all, USDCHF remains biased to the upside on further corrective strength.
