Don't forget the New Moon. Gold/Silver has consistently followed the moon cycle for years.

The typical move is bUy the FUll moon and sEll the NEw Moon. ( seems to be either a turning or acceleration point)
I noted the Aden Sisters, long time respected Gold analysts had presented a study of the Gold price as it related to its 65 week MA. Their conclusion, which I am adopting, is that a ullish trend finds support at its 65 week mo!ing a!erage.

'he rule for the <=2 and most markets$ is while the markets are trending in a >Normal or ?ast 'rend> they will not correct back against that trend mo(e than 6 days. 4emember, we don@t start that count until a daily low is broken. <o there is specific criteria related to >'IA3> or number of days to mo(ements$ that can be accurately applied to specific style or mode of trends. When markets trend there are mo(es against the trend in force and are called counter trends. Bounter trends ha(e - time series. 'he first is " to 6 days which appear in normal or fast trends and the second series is 0 to "# days,

There are two series of counter trends. A first degree countertrend of 1 to 4 days that occurs during normal to fast trend and a 7 to 13 day counter trend that occurs later in a trend.

It was suggested that I e&plain the significance of the numbers and arrows on my charts. 'he normal counter trend or the normal mo(e against a strong trend, in this inde& and most markets is " to 6 days. I refer to that as a first degree counter trend. Once a leg of a trend is complete, if the inde& is going to hold the trend in a strong position, the ne&t larger counter trend should be 0 to "# days and I refer to that number of days as a second degree counter trend. Fou can see mo(es against the trend ha(e been " to 6 days while trending. On two occasions the inde& mo(ed G days and that was the last counter trend before the change in trend. 'he G day mo(e could ha(e also been followed by a higher low or lower high, rather than the spike mo(es that occurred. 'he pointing fingers and the letters >?B> indicate a >false break> pattern. Which is when the inde& breaks to new highs or new lows and re(erses. <ince most significant highs and lows are set up with >false break> patterns of some sort, it is important that we recogni)e those possible circumstances when they appear on the chart. 'here are maHor and minor >false break> patterns.

There is a very important technique I have explained on numerous occasions. After the second test of the lower high the market came down 5 days.

Remember my rule for this circumstance that once a market exceeds twice the time of the decline we can look for a failure of the rally. LOOK AT YEN CHARTS BELOW...

I can only speak for my own approach. Bsychology determines where people in!est. In other words, a market may e fundamentally cheap on e!ery historic measure, ut if people don?t want to uy it, for whate!er reason, it will <ust lie there or ecome e!en cheaper. Fon!ersely, a market may e ludicrously o!er!alued ut while it continues to attract and hold in!estors, it will go e!en higher efore e!entually collapsing when they take fright. Moreo!er, many in!estment managers feel compelled to follow the action, in pursuit of performance. FonseCuently technical analysis is the only timing tool. I monitor sentiment, mainly in terms of how it is reflected ack to us y the media. -hat people say is a much etter indicator of what they ha!e done, rather than what the market will do. In other words, people who are long are ullish, <ust as those who ha!e sold are earish, otherwise they would e schiEophrenic. This is why the crowd is most earish at the ottom and most ullish at the top. Therefore I am a contrarian thinker, ut I need to ha!e technical e!idence that the trend is changing. 7hen reading price charts, I am only interested in price facts, not theories, of which there are many I ask filter 1uestions such as, is it trending or rangingN If trending, is it consistentN If so, and we can be very obEective about this, it is easier to monitor, and less difficult to identify an eventual loss if consistence which precedes trend change =ow is it performing relative to other marketsN 6oes it have volume confirmationN ,y colleagues at >tockcube /esearch developed a superb volume adEusted indicator, which I find very useful 6oes it show any of my 5 primary trend*ending characteristicsN 7hat are the price dynamics * my term for the big up days and down days that can change short*term sentimentN I could go on but you don-t want a textbook

My definition of a market dynamic is a single>day mo!e sufficiently strong for e!eryone to take notice. This is a relati!e comparison. 9ynamics can occur at any time and some of the most important ones are contra>trend.

Single>day technical dynamics continue to pro!ide the est ullish clues. 6 last mentioned this in 0M%1)#. The up days on Wall treet are clearly more dynamic, on average, than the down days. 6n other words, ever since the Ouly 1))1 low, U indices have generally rallied more :uickly than they have fallen. This has gone on for too long to be dismissed as mainly due to short covering. Iemand is regaining the upper hand, relative to supply. ince this is hard to see on charts reproduced for this report, 6Jll post a number of indices for your perusal on my website later today. Behaviourally, the cloud of uncertainty is liftingP the war for regime change has gone better than many predicted, and the oil price is H!) off its March peak. 0undamentally, 6 agree that the outlook is dodgy. 6 can only envisage a medium/term economic rebound, but consider this. Distorically, the most bullish year, on average, for Wall treet and therefore many other stock markets, is the third year of a U presidential term. WhyF Because the incumbent president is focussing on re/election, or if he is already in his second and final term, on helping his party to retain the White Douse. With the ne9t presidential election in 7ovember 1))#, %resident Bush and his 3dministration will increasingly focus on domestic economic issues. 7ow that addam DusseinJs regime has been successfully removed, the %resident knows that only the U economy and stock market can prevent him from winning a second term. Both face secular headwinds, for reasons previously detailed in these pages. Dowever no effort will be spared to achieve the best result possible, under these difficult circumstances.I3?6I 0uller.

Schaeffer on Fharts% The ;gly 9ollar 8y 8ernie Schaeffer 5J4#J4553 6%54 AM (T Much has een made of the negati!e impact on the dollar since recent comments y Treasury Secretary Snow regarding I;.S. dollar policy.I 8ut the ugly long>term price action in the ;.S. 9ollar Inde0 19HJ= @ .3.557 is far more significant than the transient comments of go!ernment officials. Ber the chart elow, 9HJ= has in recent months sliced through long>term support at its key 65> month and $65>month mo!ing a!erages. As I?!e pre!iously noted, the SLB 555 Inde0 1SBH @ .33.447 found strong support at its $65>month mo!ing a!erage in 2uly 4554, &cto er 4554, and March 4553. So the ;.S. dollar is clearly in worse technical shape than the road ;.S. stock market. -hile anything is possi le when UVcomparing the price action of two asset classes, it?s difficult to imagine ;.S. stocks transitioning into ull market mode if the !elocity of the dollar decline is maintained. As I see it, the technical case for at least a pause in the dollar?s decline is two>pronged. "irst, note from the chart elow that 9HJ= at this morning?s lows is within a point or so of its &cto er $..6 ottom. -ithout Cui ling a out the fact that the $..6 ottom was contained at the 65>

month mo!ing a!erage and thus reflected a healthier technical condition, there should e some dollar support that de!elops at or near this old low and also as we approach the round num er .5 le!el.

The second technical support prong for 9HJ= is the fact 1per the chart elow7 that its .>month )SI indicates the most o!ersold condition for the dollar in almost 45 years. Specifically, the last time the dollar was as o!ersold as it is right now was ack at its ma<or ottom in &cto er $.#6. The ca!eat here is that o!ersold assets can ecome e!en more o!ersold, or can remain at o!ersold e0tremes without a significant counter>trend rally.

In my May 4#th commentary entitled #he ?gly 6ollar , I pointed out the weak long>term technicals of the ;.S. 9ollar Inde0 19HJ= @ .6.547. 8ut I also noted that Ithe technical case for at least a pause in the dollar?s decline is two> pronged.I "irst, there should e some dollar support that de!elops at or near the $..6 lows and as we approach the round num er le!el at .5. And second, the dollar?s nine>month )SI indicated the most o!ersold condition in almost 45 years. Specifically, the last time 9HJ= was as o!ersold was ack at its ma<or ottom in &cto er $.#6. Ber the chart elow, the dollar su seCuently sta iliEed, made a nominal new low on 2une $6, and has now rallied y a out D.5 percent.

-hat?s ne0tO I see some rougher going, ased on a num er of o stacles created y o!erhead resistance in the .6>.# area. )allies y 9HJ= since it peaked in early 4554 ha!e in!aria ly een contained at its declining 45> week mo!ing a!erage, which is less than a point a o!e current le!els.

)esistance should also e asserted at the $65>month mo!ing a!erage, a long>term support le!el that was penetrated in May and is now looming <ust o!erhead.

And finally, resistance at the 55>percent correction le!el of the rally from the April # top to the 2une $6 ottom is at .6.65.

The dollar remains o!ersold on a long>term asis, though not as much so as was the case on May 4#. 8ut unless the recent ottom was terminal, the current rally is nothing more than a correction to a se!erely o!ersold condition, in which case resistance is likely to hold and the downtrend is likely to resume. -ith the "ed committed to running the dollar printing press full speed to enforce its policy of minuscule interest rates, I e0pect the 9HJ= ear market to resume in the coming weeks and for the ultimate ottom to e well elow the recent lows. If I?m correct, the implications for the stock market are am iguous, as a weak dollar may help stimulate the economy e!en as it may also cause o!erseas money to withdraw from ;.S. stocks. The unam iguous implications are for onds 1 earish7 and for gold 1 ullish7. * &ernie >chaeffer

What is an uptrendF What is a downtrendF ?ictor perandeo, in his first book, Trader ?ic/ Methods of a Wall treet Master, defines it perfectly: ;pward Trend / 3n upward trend is a series of successive rallies that penetrate previous high points, interrupted by sell/offs or declines, which terminate above the low points of the preceding sell/off. 6n other words, an uptrend is a price movement consisting of a series of higher highs and higher lows. 9ownward Trend / 3 downward trend is a series of successive declines which penetrate previous low points, interrupted by rallies or increases which terminate below the high points of the preceding rally. 6n other words, a downtrend is a price movement consisting of a series of lower lows and lower highs. This is simple enough ut .5 percent of traders pro a ly couldn?t tell you off the top of their heads. 4nce we know the definition of uptrend and downtrend, we are already ahead and on our way. The ne9t thing we need to do is to draw a trend line correctly. 6t becomes a game of connect the dots. perandeo continues: I"or an uptrend within the period of consideration, draw a line from the lowest low, up and to the highest minor low point preceding the highest high so that the line does not pass through prices in between the two low points. &9tend the line upwards past the highest high point. 6t is possible that the line will go through prices past the highest minor high point. 6n fact, this is one indication of a change in trend, as will be demonstrated shortly.< I"or a downtrend within the period of consideration, draw a line from the highest high point to the lowest minor high point preceding the lowest low so that the line does not pass through prices in between the two high points. &9tend the line past the lowest high point downward.<

Armed with the definition of uptrend and downtrend &leman said that in his trading he would uy e!ery
dip on the way up and e wrong once at the top, whereupon prices would fail to make a higher high. And on a downtrend, he would sell e!ery rally and e wrong once at the ottom when it would fail to make a lower low. +ow much simpler could it eO It sure eat what I had seen eing done y the desk traders and retail clients all around me, namely, uying e!ery lower low trying to catch the ottom and then shorting each higher high to try to get a top. These people were trading their egos. I thought it would e a good idea to <ust trade like "orrest Gump and make money instead. I did not press him further for he had parted with a real gem. +e did say something a out using A!erage True )ange. I did not think it was right for me to ask for more handouts. It was time for me to find a way to employ this fundamental truth. The secret was so simple and so correct. I had indeed missed the I"orrestI y getting too close to the trees. My mission was defined. 6 already knew how to take my losses :uickly but 6 was not too elegant in my approach. 6 wasn*t great at letting my profits run because 6 had the trader*s version of permanent post/traumatic stress disorder caused by the @rash of *-2. 0irst, 6 would go back to my pile of books to find methods of identifying uptrends and downtrends. econd, 6 would find ways to identify and buy each dip on an uptrend and to sell every rally on a downtrend. 4ut of those ideas, 6 could find better places to put stop loss orders and find ways to use stop loss orders to alleviate my an9iety when 6 was up on a trade

Gann !ery specifically said in his courses to use T9?s for angles, ut use F9?s for time cycle work. If you look at his famous ean chart, it was drawn in T9?s. =et his sCuare of . charts are o !iously in F9?s. To me, that difference is one of the mysteries of Gann.

Turtle Trend
The Turtle Trend is a filter de!ised y the Turtles to help them trade with the trend. As opposed to the swing trends that I list, the Turtle Trend is ased on 459 line changes. As you pro a ly know the Turtles trade !arious commodities using a 459 9onchian reakout system. If you use that system without a filter, the drawdowns can e se!ere. The Turtle Trend is up if the last 459 reakout up is a o!e the last 459 reakout down or if the last 459 reakout down is a o!e the last 459 reakout up. ,et me illustrate with the SBH. The SBH roke out a o!e 459 highs on 3J$#J53. That was a Turtle uy signal. The reakout point was 65DJSBH. The ne0t 459 reakout down occurred on #J$J53 at .63JSBH. That is a o!e the pre!ious reakout up at 65DJSBHQ so the Turtle Trend is up. The ne0t 459 reakout up occurred at $555JSBH. That is a o!e the reakout down at .63JSBH so the trend continues up. The ne0t 459 reakout down would occur at .#4JSBH if it were to occur tomorrow. If that were to happen, the Turtle Trend would turn down ecause it would occur elow the pre!ious reakout up at $555JSBH. +owe!er, IM&, it is more likely that y the time the 459 line turns down, price will e a o!e $555JSBH and the Turtle Trend will remain ;p. *ote how this Turtle Trend filter would ha!e kept the Turtles from selling the reakout down on #J$, ut would ha!e had them uying the reakout up on 6J4$ at $555JSBH. Borter If you really want to e0plore it in depth, you might want to get a hold of some of the Turtles material. 8ut I?ll try to e0plain their system for free. %7 I use the terms 459 line change and 459 reakout interchangea ly. -hat is meant is the the last 45 ars to the left are roken a o!e for a 459 line change up or elow for a 459 line change down. The Turtles enter on the reakout and place a hard 4* stop where * eCuals the A!erage True )ange o!er * days 1$5>$D days works fine7. If the reakout is on the upside they then trail a stop elow the last 459 range.

If the Turtle Trend changes to down they will stop and re!erse when the 459 range is roken elow. If the Turtle Trend is still up they will merely e stopped out. If you can grasp those simple concepts, ask me again and I will e0plain the Turtle Trend in more detail. ,et?s assume that you ought a 459 reakout up. Then when the ne0t 459 reakout down occurs you will e0it the position. If the trade shows a profit, the Turtle Trend is up, and you will not short. If the trade shows a loss, the Turtle Trend is down, and you will go short. 8T- Turtle Trend is my nomenclature. A etter description is a BrofitJ,oss filter.
