Gold Trading Strategy Says Stand Aside This August

Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010 Jul 30, 2010 - 01:05 PM GMT

By: DailyWealth


Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDr. Steve Sjuggerud writes: Earlier this month in DailyWealth, I introduced you to my Simple Gold Strategy that turned $10,000 into $2 million.

When this indicator says, "Buy," gold compounds at 35% per year. When it says, "Stand aside," gold decreases in value.

For most of the last 12 months, this indicator has said, "Buy." It's been the right advice. It caught the huge gains of late last year (up three straight months by 4.9%, 4.7%, and 8.0%). And it caught this year's best months.

Take a look:

The indicator is embarrassingly simple... but really effective.

The idea behind it is: You want to own gold only when it is in a bull market. But how do you know if gold is in a bull market? Here's how I define it...

Gold is in a bull market if it is going up not just in terms of U.S. dollars, but in terms of the four major currencies (the U.S. dollar, the euro, the yen, and the British pound).

Specifically, if gold is up versus all four currencies at the end of a month, you want to own gold for the next month.

If gold is down against even one currency, it's not in a bull market. Whether gold is down in just one currency, or down in all four currencies, the result is the same: You lose money in gold.

It appears gold will end July DOWN in all four currencies. If you want to trade this indicator, you should be OUT of gold for the month of August... This indicator says, "Stand aside."

While this system has proven to be an effective system for trading gold, it doesn't mean you need to sell all your gold now.

This system will be in and out of gold a few times a year. It is a trading system, which shouldn't have much to do with your long-term gold holdings.

On the other hand, if you don't own gold yet, you might want to wait for this system to signal "buy" again... If you do, you'll be buying into what's historically a moneymaking time for gold.

Gold doesn't look great in the short run... Our Simple Strategy says gold could have a rough month in August. The recent gold price trend isn't good.

Big falls in the price of gold are typical in major gold bull markets... A 50% drop is not out of the question.

In my opinion, it's better to wait for gold to bottom and start an uptrend again to buy... Instead of trying to catch a "falling knife," wait for it to hit the ground and settle, then grab it.

In short: Yes, you want to own gold for the long run. But based on the Simple Strategy and the trend, the short run doesn't look promising. Trade accordingly.

Good investing,


P.S. We are working diligently to offer up a new trading product that's full of simple, powerful indicators like this one. As I write, we have a team of PhDs and statisticians crunching numbers and refining our strategy.

We're taking our time because want it to be done right. We want it to be both highly profitable and extremely user-friendly. I'm excited to share this new product with the world in a few months... As a DailyWealth reader, you'll be the first to hear more.

The DailyWealth Investment Philosophy: In a nutshell, my investment philosophy is this: Buy things of extraordinary value at a time when nobody else wants them. Then sell when people are willing to pay any price. You see, at DailyWealth, we believe most investors take way too much risk. Our mission is to show you how to avoid risky investments, and how to avoid what the average investor is doing. I believe that you can make a lot of money – and do it safely – by simply doing the opposite of what is most popular.
