Gold:

Were you able to capitilize on the recent wild moves in Gold? We did.  Not only have we got a low risk entry point we have been able to make use of the wild gyrations of the last few days. Here is a screen shot of an update sent to those who purchased the Gold and Silver medium term view:

Gold Update

Gold corrected as expected from 1270's to 1248 and once again bounced from 1248 to 1270.

PNB:

Part of the trade idea was to go long on a just -OTM put. After the report was published, PNB's 560 put appreciated from 5 to 42, 580 put appreciated from 10 to 62 , 8 fold increase and 6 fold increase depending on which strike was taken.

Both these posts - PNB and  precious metals have useful trend guidance that can come in handy for the slightly longer term trader (albeit at a higher risk level now).

The weekly chart of Gold with its Elliott Wave labelling is shown below.

Gold is moving within a large complex 4th wave  and the final 'Y' leg of the 4th wave may have just started.

Besides the June low of 1181, a couple of important Fibonacci support clusters are placed around 1180's. Also, on the day when Gold hit a low of 1186, a survey of futures traders who were bullish on Gold was a mere 5% - an extreme and market lows tend to occur around such sentiment extremes.

Therefore, the odds that Gold has seen an important low at the level of 1181 is quite high. Hence a short term trader may look to go long on Gold with a stop below $1180. Partial longs at current price and pullbacks around 1217-1210 to be used as further entry points. The wave Y is very likely to end close to the August high of Gold, roughly around 1425-30 and that will be the price objective of this trade set up.

Silver:

The technical structure of Silver is similar to that of Gold. Silver is moving within a large complex 4th wave  and the final 'Y' leg of the 4th wave may have just started.

Silver is unlikely to drop below the low of $18.6 seen last week. Hence traders may go long with a stop below 18.6 with a price objective of $25.2. Use decline to $19.7 and $19.5 as entry points with a small entry at current price of $20.2.

PS: There are legitimate alternate Wave Counts for both Gold and Silver but the alternates also point to a short term rally. Mr Market will tell us if we need readjust our wave counts. As of now even the least bullish case, points to a rally of $1350-60 for Gold.

PNB has gained about 19% since the beginning of December. However, the rise from the September low seems to be just a corrective rise within a larger decline.

The monthly chart of PNB shown below sports a distinctive lower low and lower high pattern. From an Elliott Wave perspective, the decline from 2010 to 2013 September can be counted as waves 1 through 3.

On 2nd Jan the stock reached 654 and then fell sharply to register a bearish outside day. This level of 654 is a perfect 25% retracement of waves 1 through 3 which is a characteristic behavior of wave 4 after a strong wave 3.

On the daily time frame, the move since September is slow, choppy,  overlapping, contained within parallel lines - once again a characteristic behavior of a corrective rally.

Now if we see PNB drop below 600, it is likely that the 5th wave down has started for PNB and a decline to a minimum of 400 is underway. The confidence in this wave count will increase if PNB closes below 558 and also breaks the parallel channel.

So, what would I do as a trader? IF and ONLY if 600 is violated, I would consider going short with 682 cash level as a stop. Ideally using some just out of the money put (should be liquid and have a sensible premium) as a trading vehicle. After, 558 is taken out, I would consider getting more aggressive and hold for the medium term target of 375.

If however 654 is taken out before 600, the broader theme of a 5th wave decline would still be valid but I will let the upward correction continue to about 680-721 before looking to go short. (I will email you all and update in this scenario). The bottom line - medium term outlook is bearish and a move below the September 2013 low seems likely.
