Searching for the Mother Lode

Gold investors worldwide do not need a treasure map to dig depressions caused by waterfalls. They see the current “on sale” gold decline as an opportunity for those with shovels of cash reserves and a dynamite vision. 

They know that gold price losses have nothing to do with its intrinsic or fundamental value and that is why they are digging those depressions for nuggets of value.

As a prospector, I have no problem with the price of gold or its ultimate future but as a trader, there are difficulties in finding bedrock for gold and silver stocks.

Trend & Cycle Decoded

You really do not want to know the future because if you did, you would simply be a robot fulfilling that future “plan”. There would be no free will, no choices and no mystery.

In trading markets, we can measure trends and cycles but what we are really doing is probability analysis. We do not absolutely know the outcome, only a probable result. However, in longer term trends and cycles, the probabilities become more reliable. 

First, some supporting background information.

St. Elmo's Fire
Prospects from Ghosts and Gold

St. Elmo was originally developed in 1878 when gold and silver were discovered. 

The DenverTribune observed at the time, “St. Elmo, a town of less than 6 months, has two sawmills, a smelter and concentrator, 3 hotels, 5 restaurants and several stores.” 

According to Wikipedia, St. Elmo is one of Colorado's best preserved ghost towns. "The town was at its peak in the 1890s, when it included a telegraph office, general store, town hall, 5 hotels, saloons, dancing halls, a newspaper office, and a school house. The Denver, South Park and Pacific Railroad line ran through St. Elmo. There were 150 patented mine claims within the area. The Mary Murphy Mine was the largest and most successful mine in the area and recovered over $60,000,000 worth of gold while it was in operation." 

At nearly 10,000 ft, there is not much going on there now except for an eerie presence. According to local legend, Annabelle Stark still keeps a ghostly watch over the town from the the hotel below.

Home Comfort Hotel

 "A skier was said to have seen a very attractive woman in a white dress framed in the second story window of the old Home Comfort Hotel. The young woman's eyes were focused on something in the distance and when the skier followed her gaze, she saw a group of snowmobilers who were riding through the street. The skier flagged down the group, informing them that snowmobiling was illegal in St. Elmo. The group apologized and rode away. When the skier looked back at the hotel, the woman nodded to her, then turned away and vanished." 

Annabelle knows there is lot more gold here, that the town is worth preserving and that it will be renamed "St. Elmo's Fire".

Our personal Gold and Silver markets are also a ghost town in decline with many convinced the mines have already seen their heyday, there are no more nuggets to be found and it's time for residents to quietly head to the train station.

Today, your resident prospector is here to tell you that there is lot more gold to be found. With up to 25% to 50% of residents having already left, that means more gold mines for all those remaining at bargain prices, some even for free.

He also believes that advanced technical methods of Bonanza Gold will uncover a brand new mother lode trend, in the not too distant future.

Fortunately, that prospector is not a ghost.

Highlights from Key Chapters 

Premiere Trading Indicators
Today we are going to examine three of the best technical trend indicators outside of Market Pendulum's and a premiere trading method for using them. 

The Time Frame Clock 
The Market Pendulum time frame model is really quite simple. The gears in this “clock” are the daily, weekly and monthly time frame trends. First, we need to know their individual trend directions. Secondly, we need to know their respective influence on each other.

The Secrets of Time Frame Trends 
I want to again emphasize eight points that apply to any stock selection issue or trading plan. They are indeed my gold standard in trading which answers a lot of questions and solves a lot of problems that deal with price, time and distance.

Strategic Math (for 100% Winners) 
In my opinion, any stock at any price which achieves a 100% gain is an immediate candidate for a complete sale or for this procedure, all else being equal. I have a past history of 61 which achieved this milestone. Clearly, this method is worth considering. 

Short Term Retracements - The Fifth Dimension 
It is primarily for those with a shorter term horizon but has the additional benefit of allowing longer term investors a good entry point to add to their existing positions. This trade plan is #2 in terms of probabilities and accuracy.

Trading Checklist 
This purpose of this presentation is simply to bring several technical elements, techniques and strategies from the different articles above into a single checklist and trading plan.
