Yearly high and lows

Throughout the year, how many days between yearly low and yearly high?

Here is an updated table of the duration between highs and lows and lows to highs in Calendardays. It does not tell when the highs and lows arrive, only duration between them. Updated 28.09.2021

Highs and Lows of the year 2001 - 2021

Over the last 20 years, the table shows that the average time between yearly high and yearly low is more than 200 calendardays (on average).

The last 10 years, the German DAX index and the US Nasdaq100 index have both reached its yearly high before its yearly low, every year but in 2018. Is there a change to this pattern in 2022 where the high of the year steps in first? 

This overview is a clear proof that trends lasts a while.

Metals for week 38, 2021

Precious Metals contine to trade lower giving Metal Bulls a prolonged headache. The latest seasonality trend did not work out for higher prices, and 2 weeks ago started a seasonal weaker period.

According to the weekly chart above where Gold, Silver and Platinum is equally weighted the overall trend continues sideways to south. Last week traded down through technical support levels for all 3.

As long as the bars are red, there is a weakening performance to the developments going forward. The very last bar shows a lower high and a lower low and thereby no sign of pushing higher (for now).

Metals into week 36, 2021

Metals are stronger through week 35.

This graph above is equally weighted for Gold, Silver and Platinum, showing strength last week represented in a blue bar.

Gold vs Silver:

Gold continues to hold up better than Silver in the weekly perspective.

Nasdaq100 vs Gold:

 And the technology weighted Nasdaq100 index continues to outpace the price of Gold.

No end in sight...

The ratio for Platinum to Nasdaq100 shows little end in sight.

A renewed All-Time-Low yesterday at 0.064. As one red (blue) often leads to another red (blue), markets just have to await stronger signals, for this current prolonged downtrend to reverse.

Metals pre Mond. Aug. 23

Gold, Silver and Platinum are presented in this weekly chart below.

As pointed out in the development for the metals, there is no strengthening signs going into next week. The general price trend for metals are still down rather than up. In this graph Gold, Silver and Platinum are weighted equally, and the view is derived into an Hekin Ashi chart from underlying weekly metals prices.

Platinum vs Silver pre Mond Aug. 23.

Platinum outperforms Silver.

This passed week Platinum prices outperformed Silver prices. The weekly chart shows the increased momentum. The higher the numbers in the chart above the more Silver it takes to exchange into 1 OZ Platinum.

Metals Wedn. 18th Aug.

Metals (Gold, Silver and Platinum eaqually weighted) continues to be a dog here. No strength in sight so far.

This chart above proves that in the weekly Heikin Ashi chart. It is certainly moving down not up (for the moment).

Chart is through week 32 ending Friday the 13th.

Platinum pre Monday Aug. 09.

Platinum is now below USD 1.000, which is a level seen as a threshold for the price. The entire last week, saw very weak developments in 4 out of the 5 sessions (Monday was + 0.75%).

In order to gain traction to higher Platinum prices to come, markets must quickly recover towards the USD 1.090 level for further advance. The weekly chart is quite weak, and weakness is often followed by further weakness.
