GOLD GAPS HIGHER – THERE’S A SHISTORM BREWING

This morning I am humbled by this explosive move in Gold prices. As my alarm went off this morning, I knew I would have to face the music.

There would be feces cast about, comments made about family members and the size of genetalia….this I would have to endure being positioned against a highly sophisticated crowd of hamburger flippers, Walmart greeters, convenience store clerks and custodial arts workers.

Do your worst. Today I am prepared for all things.

    Phil- don’t forget to post your sale. It’s not a win ’till you book a gain.

    And dont forget, it’s possible for everyone to win if our timeframes are not the same.

    I’ll add my last piece of DGLD whenever i get to a computer.

    P.s. $wfc under $50, taking a look

    OA has his misses, like anyone. The moral of the story for me anyway is to keep your position sizes in check. The fact that he can shake it off and keep going after being wrong in such a high conviction trade is testament to his discipline in position size. Some day I will learn this. I hope.

    I suppose it’s easy to be all gentlemanly when I’ve been balls deep in GLD, GDXJ and GG for a week or two. Got here with a single sized position split three ways.

      I just read how Gold has the “Mother of All Bullish Patterns” and this parabolic move sounds like it’s going to be HUGE!!! I don’t have a position yet… is there still room for me to buy with the other 80+% of bulls riding this train?!?!?

          The 80% comes from CFTC futures contract positioning reports and any decent sized sentiment poll I can find… Also, if you truly think that it’s the likes of Peter Schiff and others “bugs” like him that is pushing prices higher here then you truly are ignorant of who your allies are in this trade. It stopped being about the bugs a while ago…..

          Are you kidding me? Gold bugs show charts of how cheap gold is and when it goes up they tell you it will never stop going up.
          To goldbugs, gold is always on sale. It’s like walking into a JC Pennys and everything is on sale all the time. Well, it may look like it’s on sale, but it may have been marked up in price just so they can put it on sale…

    So Lael Brainard just came out with lets not hike rate’s for a while. The freedom caucus just started their own “tax cuts” which means you won’t be getting them. A catagory 5 hurricane is barreling into florida with two behind them. North Korea is going to fire another missile friday night followed by another h-bomb shortly then war. I’m going out on a limb here the North Korean war will be like bush’s iraq a nice distraction. The debt ceiling got kicked down the road 3 months. We still have the possibility of a government shutdown sept 29th. Stocks still flirting with all time highs. Every techinition worth his weight is saying buy stocks saying wait for the face ripper in the usd. Call me crazy I just see a mess over the next couple of weeks before I’d consider gold giving back any gains. Maybe a hawkish fed but on what they’re already saying they have no core pce inflation so no rate hikes. So a dovish fed in my eyes would = gold above that 1372 level and dollar going lower. Idk I just like a short in es for the rest of sept with it flirting at the highs here. Sometimes the crowd gets it right but what I don’t see if a real face ripper in stocks that will blow me out of the water.

    Just a question on the DGLD position, how are you planning on combating decay on a 3x inverse ETF? If you don’t catch the bottom, you’re nuclear-ly fucked. Never used these for long term positions.

        If you look at the return from Dec 2016 until today GLD has lost .25% and DGLD has lost 4.08%. DGLD would’ve been massively profitable within certain weeks, but ultimately boosts the risk profile significantly if held over a long period of time.

            So if you hold it for a year and GLD decreases .25% like you predict, and your return is -4.08%, how is this a long term tool? And I guess you’re only smart on this blog if you talk about stuffing dicks in mouths. Got it.

      No, the “genius” part of it is when someone identifies another UPSWING BEFORE IT HAPPENS (see my posts and charts on Friday of last week predicting where SLV and GLD was headed). You cult followers are really something else. Constantly trying so desperately to spin things in a way that makes OA look good.

The current leg started TWO Fridays ago. 3) I didn’t “spin” shit.. unlike you keep spinning Peter and dick references off your lips and finger tips (I guess that’s where you’re comfortable having them…) 4) And I’m not “cult” anything.. just enjoying watching your cockiness grow as others join in with you.. cause that will lead the “SWING” I’m looking for.

        I guess “NNNUUUGGGTTTT” has been replaced by Peter North references this time around… this is gonna be good!!

    A trade position in common stock for most of the guys who read this blog is a couple thousand bucks (different from an investment position). Maybe a few bought $5 or $10 grand worth of $DGLD. Gold moved 0.8% today. I bought 30 shares for $43.58 as my initial position (a small trade position). But watching the ridiculousness on here last week induced me to take a Yuge trade position for me, which is an additional 107 shares for $40.40 (actually $40.32 before comissions). So I’ve got 137 shares now and my average cost basis is $41.09/share. I’m down a whopping $218. I made back more than that on a trade in MRVL calls today that I got off OA. I really have no opinion on gold whatsoever, other than it will be fun to come back here and gloat about a double in this thing, should that come to pass. Should it turn into a loss of a few thousand it was worth it to watch a bunch of assholes waste time in the comments section for days on end agonizing about a single position, tick for tick, while bigger and better things are happening around us every day.

      I’ve been doing this for 12 years (although not very experienced with options). And humbly not unsatisfied with results. Interactive Brokers charges a buck per trade. Granted, that’s not where I bought most of the DGLD. To each his own but I don’t like to take concentrated positions in anything. Not my style. Due respect to those with more confidence than me or the multi-millionaires among us, but no one will ever convince me to bet $50k one way or the other in a swing trade involving a pet rock.

        Sorry to disappoint, but not “ragnar”. Did you not see MC’s chart either? Heck, if you went on Stocktwits for crying out loud you would have seen the many charts showing the major TL break amongst other bullish patterns. Like I said on Friday, the DGLD purchase was a real head scratcher given the breakout earlier in the week.

        Look, you got one wrong. it’s no big deal. Everything would have simply drifted away had you not turned a mere difference of opinion to a cocks being stuffed in mouth and skull fucking banter. In return, you get a taste of your own medicine when proven wrong.

        I will be closing out my SLV calls tomorrow and positioning in other setups. Good day, sir.

    $FFIV has slowed to a trickle, ATR on the floor, no momentum- left for dead.

    I love trying to pick shit up off the floor ($ORN & $ICON)- that is until those times I go Slumdog Millionaire down the hole and into the slop (here’s to you $CBI !)…

    Looking at what gold is doing now – we know Phil covered before the close on Friday. That said – sarcasm aside – since he has posted what seems like hundreds of times since he started posting – maybe there really is a post amongst the blog post addiction mess in which he did mention he covered.

    I said when I was planning to sell SLV calls last week. Do your own legwork. I think the question you should be asking is what is OA’s shorter term/longer term target on DGLD? For now, GLD is holding a MA support just fine (look at the 7 day). DGLD hitting gap resistance here.

        Let’s talk about that in a rational manner. You “laid out” that gold would get hammered last week. That turned out to be wrong. You had also laid out that you were in DGLD for the long haul…as in week to months. Fair enough and we agreed on the difference in our timeframes. So I suppose a question for you is how do you view the short term in GLD? As in a week. Take in to account GLD is holding a short term support line just fine today.

          I laid out that I was building a position into last week. This is where I expected the top to be.

          I talked shit to you because you can suck my cock. I said you would get hammered, because you are a troll.

          You have no skin here anymore, so fuck off.

            A troll is a person who had a difference of opinion in the short term trade in the PM’s. Got it. Loser.

            No, you were already in a position I started betting against. You end up closing the same week I finalize mine…talking shit the whole way.

            Troll.

            Fucking liar, you piped in saying you were already long calls. You never posted a trade in real time here. Quit wasting my fucking time.

            FAKE NEWS, fucktard. I posted the setup THE WEEK BEFORE you said I was going to get “skull fucked”. Are you a CNN reporter in the day? LOLZ ๐Ÿ™‚

            CORRECT. I was long calls heading in to the next week (and posted charts why) and you said I was caught in a BULL TRAP for the following week and would get a “five dick in my mouth” selloff in gold. Want to try and keep spinning it? You look silly.

            Exactly. You posted no trade, you only said you were long. Great job dude. Zero credibility without posting entries or exits. Just another troll to argue.

            (the gold selloff would have obviously been bad for SLV).

            SLV call is up 40%!!! SLV call is up 30 % you fucking idiots. SLV starts the week down and calls are worthless. Now you state you sold last week. Go hang out with that fat fuck phils stock world. You fit right in

          I’m glad you say FAKE NEWS as kind of a reflex, Phil. It is the bow atop this entire interaction.

          I’d find this all very annoying if it weren’t for that small detail. So thank you.
