The monthly changes table is located below the indicators on the respective sites.


Daily Lumber prices pre Mond. Aug. 23

Lumber prices are down 72% the last 106 calendar days.

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.

Nasdaq100 & Gold pre Mond. Aug. 23

Is the technology weighted Nasdaq100 index still better than Gold?

The weekly chart above shows the development of the Nasdaq100 index divided by the price of Gold.

As the graph signals, the index has outperformed Gold since May. This passed week gives a signal of that trend stalling. Is it time for a break or to head south? Gold looks to attempt to hold up better than Nasdaq100. Next week could quickly show if this is more true than false going forward when next week is giving the Blue or Red bar. The higher (lower) the numbers in the graph the more (less) OZ Gold needed in exchange for a contact of Nasdaq100.

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.

Gold Silver pre Monday 23rd of Aug.

Gold continues to outperform Silver. See chart below.

This is the weekly Heikin Ashi chart derived from the weekly price development of Gold divided by Silver. The more the numbers creeping up, the more silver it takes to get ahold of 1 OZ Gold. Until markets do see a Red bar, Gold is favoured over Silver.

Nasdaq100 vs Gold prices

The Nasdaq100 index continues to outperform the price of Gold.

This weekly chart above clearly demonstrates how Nasdaq100 has outperformed the Gold price development in 2021. Especially the last 10 weeks (since late May), the Nasdaq100 index has seen extreme performance. The higher the prices the more OZ Gold it takes to pay for one contract of the Nasdaq100 index.


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.

Gold to Silver Wedn. 18th Aug.

Gold continues to outperform Silver.

The higher this goes the more silver you need to have to get ahold of every OZ Gold.

Soft commodities to Oct 19th

- Blending Coffee, Sugar and Cocoa prices in one chart below.

The chart above shows how the three commodities are developing in 2021 vs earlier years. The weaker seasonal period from late February to May produced no change this year. The current and yearly stronger seasonal stage (May to October) is so far producing + 15%. 

According to seasonality and its historical facts, there is potentially more upside over the next 2 months. Lately, it has been coffee, and now it's sugar driving the prices higher. Cococa could soon be picking up steam also. To see each commodity individually, head over to their respective sections for the regular updates. Obviously, there will be breaks along the way for the price developments.

Trading is risky, it is vital to always to keep stop losses in place at a preferred level in - for financial instrument.

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.

Silver pre Monday Aug. 09.

As for Gold, Silver is ending the past week to the weak side and buliding lower highs in the weekly chart below.

Silver could find some support to prices around the USD 24 level (April and January lows), but according to the graph above there is certainly no immediate buying pressure for the white metal. Markets must challenge the USD 26 level to trigger further upside.

Gold pre Monday Aug. 09.

After holding above the USD 1.800 throghout the week, Gold took a beating Friday to be sold down USD 40 below. The week ended - 3% and trading against the present seasonal trend.

Weakness often leads to more weakness. In a weekly perspective, the Goldprice is now under pressure (see chart above) until markets go back to challenge the USD 1.830 from last week's high.

Nasdaq100 for Monday 02. Aug.

Pre-Monday's stock markets openings - here is the Nasdaq100 index on a week to week basis, and day to day basis. Both presented in Heikin Ashi terms. 


There is no doubt the weekly chart is showing extreme strength. Until markets violate the 14.476 level, marked in the diagram, the medium term upside could still be intact. 

On a daily basis. The pattern is quite different. Let's have a look below.



This Nasdaq100 chart is sited intraday by intraday. Friday closed a Red bar, which signals upcoming weakness (read the oposite in the pic for Blue). Now, the 'only' reference point seems to be 14.991 whcich is marked in Red. If the level is violated, there is a greater chance the upside will again resume. Until proven, indications are pointing lower for the index.
