The month of May is historically a period of consolidation or accumulation before higher prices to come.
Below is how sugar is developing (red line) on top of the historical seasonality chart (blue line).

The importance of time

Seldom you read or hear about how a certain intraday of the week could be more important to watch and trade than another.

Looking at this table below, you quickly see that some days are so called up-days and some days are down-days. Revealing the numbers behind the colors will probably shock you! There are extreme differences to the performance of certain intradays.

2019 DAILY

So far in 2019, if you are long the Nasdaq100 index going into Thursdays, you are most likely to see the index fall significantly through that day. The very same is true for metals, where Thursdays are clearly the worst performing day of the week for both the Gold and the Silver.

Happy Trading!


The German DAX index is only half as strong as the tech-weighted Nasdaq100 index since X-mas. It is up 11.2% since the low of 27th of Dec at 10.400 (now 11.575).

Looking at this 4-hours chart below (one bar represents 4 hrs of trading), there is little weakness to spot for now. The first support below the Red line may be seen as the 15. Feb low at 11.013. Trading underneight that level should be seen as the first major sign of potential further market weakness to come.

Gold on track

The Goldprice is holding up with its roadmap from earlier years. In order to continue on this path, markets needs to keep off / stay above last weeks low @ 1.306.


The upcoming seasonal top finds place next Monday February 25th plus minus one tradingday. Only time will show if this proves correct this time around.

At the same time, it is interesting to take a look at the price of Platinum to Gold. The rear metal has continued to see weakness and the relative strength to Gold is actually - 15.6% since November 8th. At that time, gold traded at 1.223,5.

Since 1970, Platinum is currently seeing a value which is - 56% lower than its average relative price to Gold. A ratio this low has never been observed during the analyzed period. This is telling us that Platinum may be dirt cheap at current levels from an historial perspective. 


The Red solid line in the graph above, is a 50 day moving average which is now + 3.9% above the closing this passed Friday.

If or rather when markets see Platinum to Gold above this Red solid line, it could be a first and clearer sign that the price of Platinum could be entering a period where it will outperform Gold, or that markets wish to prefer having Platinum over Gold.

To put preent state into perspective - Gold is now trading USD 97.5 above its November price, and Platinum is trading USD 63,5 lower than its November price.

Only time will show when markets wants this equilibrium to level out..


Nasdaq100 & the markets

Nasdaq100 has managed to move + 15% since x-mas, but is still - 10% from the October 2018 All Time High.

Updating the present longer term chart and comparing it to how the DJIA and DAX performed in 1966 into 1967 and 1973 into 1974, - it seems that markets next fase is more likely to turn lower over the next 135 to 170 tradingdays.

090219 - nasdaq100 vs 1966-1967 and 1973-1974

The 4 Red Dots are marked by the respective periodical lows, and shows us that 'if these market-maps are guides', a first potential low for Nasdaq100 will be in about 135 tradingsessions (66-67 DJIA) from this Monday 11th of Feb.. Most similar to the present price action developing from the October 1st top, continues to be the 73-74 DJIA scenario - with a lowpoint about 147 tradingdays away, and - 30.5% lower than yesterday Friday close.

According to the market-map from 1973 - 1974, there should now be about 4-5 tradingdays  more before 143 trading-sessions of sliding..

Roadmap for Gold

Gold continues to trade strong in accordance to its seasonality - so far. Here is its present state up against the 'roadmap' for the yellow metal based on historical research.


The peak for the Green mapped line is 21 calendardays way (Feb. 26th).

Only time will show if this proves to be true this year, or if it only belongs to the past. Remember to always keep a preferable stop loss in place at your suited pricelevel.


Research shows that the Goldprice tends to trade higher through the last two days of the month into the first two days of the next month. This 4-days trading period sees higher Gold in 4 out of the last 6 'turn of the month' cases.


Summing all last six four days periods makes up + 1.3%.

Remeber that what happened in the passed is not equal to what will happen in the future... but these are interesting observations in conjuction to what really happens when a trading month comes to an end, to start another.


Research shows that the German DAX index now performs sluggish around the turn of the month.

By looking at how the index performs 'two tradingdays before through two tradingdays after' the change of a month, you see that markets favours to turn significantly lower within this short 4 day timeframe four out of the last five instances.



Trading over August to September saw the index drop - 2.7%. The 4 intradays October to November brought the index + 2.6% higher, but all last 5 'turn of the month' cases shows negative development of totally - 4.4%.

The tradingperiod analysed equals a start tomorrow Wednesday to end Monday. Remeber that passed performance is history and by no means accurate of what will happen in the future. Even though, the research here is an interesting observation of the passed.


Time to get back to earth. The Nasdaq100 index is now up 15.5% since x-mas (see daily chart below). This means the index has retraced back 50% of the 60 tradingdays downturn from October 1st at 7.700 peak to the December 26th low, in just 16 tradingdays.

170119 - NASDAQ100 SINCE X-MAS 

The last 4 weeks shows higher weekly lows, and higher weekly highs. A healthy sign of real strength. Tomorrow is Friday, the last tradingday of this week. Friday is traditionally a weaker tradingday for this index. Any pullback below todays low @ 6.614 is the first signal lower prices potetially to come. Only time will show further direction. Remember to always keep a preferred stop loss in place to limit your downside. 


Silver has now traded strongly since December 26th, when it broke up through USD 14.90 resistance.

Totally, the upturn has lasted 44 tradingdays and + 10.40% since it found the 13.90 level low on November 14th. This proved to be a retest of the September 11th low, and thereby forming a double bottom.


Going forward, the industrial metal needs to trade outside its current 8 days long tight trading-range...and follow through to determine next course.

As for the remainer of the week, Thursdays and Friday historically shows to be strong intradays. Time will show, and always remember stop loss wherever preferred.

Markets in perspective

Looking at history, reseach shows that stockmarkets could be far away from their end to current downturn. It seems that the October 01st 2018 top was spot on for now.

The graph below gives you the perspective. In February of 1966 the DJIA and DAX started trending down to bottom around the new year of 1967. In late October of 1973 DJIA and the DAX indices started the downturns ending in October of 1974.

Putting these downtrends into perspective, there are now between 154 and 189 intradays to go from present levels until markets could see their low points. These are marked with RED dots in the chart below.

By continuing to follow the DJIA path for 1973 into 1974, markets should not rule out prices - 30% lower than present levels this October of 2019 for thereby to be retested in December.

Gold pre X-mas 2019.

Status Goldprice (14:00 CET) in relation to December Fed meeting yesterday is sited below. The vertical red line is placed '2 hours after US Open tomorrow', Friday. 

The Red graph illustrates where Gold is presently trading compared to the Fed meetings in Aug., Sept., and Nov.. So far Gold is trading inverse (stronger) post the Fed meeting yesterday, compared to the events earlier this summer and fall. The chart do outline the next 4 tradingdays for Aug., Sept., and Nov..

201218 - FED GOLD

If current strength continues, it is also inverse to earlier December Fed meetings researched from 2012 - 2017 which shows weakness post December Fed meetings (see post incl. table from the 18.12.18).

December FED, Gold and Nasdaq100

The overviews below might give clues to how it is likely for markets to develop over the next few intradays.

The tables show Gold's and Nasdaq100's price change pre and post passed a December Fed meeting. This December two day meeting starts today and finishes tomorrow Wednesday 19th.

See the event live here Wednesday 19th at 2:30 pm (GMT + 1 HR).

The tables shows day number 8 as tomorrows Fed day and is highlighted in yellow.

In general, Gold points to a low after the fed meeting except for last year. For this year 1.251 is the high price to watch so far, and 1.233 as the low for the analyzed period. Gold range easily more than USD 40 from high to low or low to high.

181218 - FED GOLD 2018


Nasdaq100 noted below, shows strength for a duration of 7 - 12 tradingdays lasting a few days post the FED meeting. The yellow line is also here noted on day 8 which is 'equvanlent' with tomorrow. When looking at the table, it could be relevant to see that Nasdaq100 have already fallen 450 points for this December. 


Only time will show if this year is different. Always remeber to hold a preferred stop loss in place at all times.

December Fed & Gold next week

Next Wednesday, FOMC will hold its last Federal Reserve meeting of 2018. In conjuction to these meetings, there are larger than normal gold price fluctuations making great short term trading oppertunities. How much gold price change should be expected and in what direction?

The diagram below shows how gold tend to swing the days pre and post a December Fed meeting. Today 12.12, markets are trading day 2 in the overview, were gold has the largest intraday stretch on average from low to high or high to low (the last 6 years). It has not been less than USD 10 the last years, rather closer to USD 20.

Number 8 in the overview, is 'equvalent' to next Wednesday the 19th.


Looking at the gold price trend through a December Fed meeting, markets on average see a fading price development over the next 2 weeks. See chart below. Next Wednesday is marked in yellow. The last years, gold has struggled to find buyingpower through these December meetings, as stockmarkets have been strong. But who knows, maybe it is all different this year..  





Dax and Gold for Tuesday 111218.

There are two routes put out for tomorrow Tuesday 11.12.18.

The first one is an analysis of Gold. The yellow metal do trade quite strongly during parts of Tuesday since this passed summer.


Gold's three interesting timewindows to look out for tomorrow Tuesday, is just after midnight (all times displayed are set for CET / GMT + 1 HR.). The second timewindow is around 14:30 when the US Producer Price Index numbers are released. And the third window approx one hour before US trading session close. 

The Dax Future index map below shows a strong trending european stock market session for tomorrow Tuesday. The route suggests a down, but maps could be inverse.


Remember that these maps are created based on researched intraday data, and may differ totally from what actually will happen in the markets. The timewindows could pinpoint market turns of interest or signal support or resistance to prices as they develop. You never know until tomorrow is history.

Always keep a preferred stop loss in place for all positions, and be aware of the daily ranges.

On top of this page you will see how much certain instruments move within its certain timeframe.


...And below - the actual traded Gold market and DAX Future for this Tuesday:

131218 - GOLD ACTUAL TUESDAY 111218

When it comes to the Gold development for Tuesday (see actual traded chart above), the map outlined to buy at about 00:10 CET for then to sell out the position at 14:30 CET. At 14:30 CET, a short position is entered and then covered around 20:50 CET. The range (low to high, or high to low) this intraday was USD 7. Following the map took home the profit of + USD 6.9, using only stop loss of USD 2 a trade. Tight, but enough to not be stopped out.

Below is the Dax Future to be compared to its map (further up in this post).


The Dax Future suggested a strong trending map for Tuesday, and a potentially inverse one. This turned out to be the case.

So -  If believing in an inverse actual traded intraday, trading starts off 09:20 CET as a long position to be sold out around 16:10 CET, for then to switch to a short position to be covered 17:30 CET. This scenario made + 205 points with a 30 points stop loss. 

If the sited map was 100% followed, the stop loss would have determined the profit / loss case for the intraday. When entering a short position 09:20 CET, a stop loss of 30 points would have been hit within an hour. At that time or later in the day, a thought is to see the next upcoming timewindow as a high rather than a low for thereby to go short again. A short trade 16:10 CET to be covered 17:30 was highly profitable (+ 45 points). When adding this to the first loosing trade, this Tuesday turned out + 15 points. 

Nasdaq100 & Silver 041218.

After the last strong intradays, here is an updated chart vs the map of DJIA 1973-1974.

Nasdaq100 do continue to follow the 1973-1974 map of DJIA. Over the next period, markets would now see a lowpoint in approx. 30 intradays from yesterdays close.

Thereafter, rising prices equivalent to + 5.3% compared to yesterday's close . In time - in 51 tradingdays. From this point, markets could start the 143 days downtrend to mark its lowpoint in the beginning of October 2019. This slide may be counted as a fall of - 34%.


Only time will show if 1973-1974 proves to be the most 'correct' historical path.


Below is the Nasdaq100 index up against the price of Silver. A ratio is created to see the relative present values. The All time high for the Nasdaq100 index is marked by the vertical line for a broader perspective.
