Many of you don’t know, but I have an ETF Trading Service I put out each reports for each day for subscribers. It is doing quite well and is something each of you can check out with a 2 week free trial. Below is tonight’s report. Information can be found on the service here. http://illusionsofwealth.com/ You can also listen to a couple radio interviews I did on that page.
We have been buying the dips of JNUG and NUGT, two gold stock mining ETFs of late and before that profiting nicely on shorting the metals (buying JDST and DUST).
We have to wonder at this point is the Trump bull over for stocks and ready to get gold to rise from the beat down it has taken to below $1,200? We’ll find out soon.
ETF Trading Research 11/28/2016
Coming back from a long holiday weekend, I wanted to be a little cautious and started us out with some scalps today. We really didn’t get normal moves in the morning. It was as if market makers were still half asleep. Even after lunch we barely got anything. I don’t think they want to shock the markets lower, but feel a move lower is in the works and that is where we concentrated today.
While we did scalp we also are carrying home JNUG, LABD, FAZ and TZA. I’m looking for a gap down in the market and move higher in gold for now, along with more of a dollar sell off.
We sold the last 1/2 shares of UGAZ if anyone carried it over the weekend. I know one of you bought UGAZ a couple times and wrote and told me they cleared 17% twice and 13% on JNUG from Friday entry (they might have bought when I gave out my mock mutual fund as that is about where 13% comes from 6.30 to 7.15).
One thing you have to know with these fast moving leveraged ETFs, is there is plenty of time to catch a trend and profit. I would rather be conservative and miss a little run in the beginning, but catch the bulk of the run that can still come. We have done that playing both sides of gold miners with JNUG and JDST. I don’t see that changing. I don’t like getting a stop that is one penny before I say to stop out though. Sometimes I am a little too conservative.
LABD, FAZ and TZA all finished at their highs of the day. JNUG within 6 cents.
I stayed away from oil today as I don’t have a good substitute for UWTI and DWTI and don’t want you in those ETFs right now being they are going to be pretty much obsolete soon. I looked at some alternative but they are not following oil well.
On Friday at the closing bell I have a shorter term mutual fund of 3 ETFs I liked. Keep an eye on those prices for entries or below on Monday. We may of course open higher where I would more than likely still be a buyer. I just feel a market turn coming is all, which does as you’ll see in this report go against the weekly/monthly green trend on the metals. But we have also overall done good with catching some good returns. As always, keep stops. We have a long few weeks before the next run up to the Christmas holiday.
Economic Data for Tomorrow
8:30 am U.S. GDP due out tomorrow.
In last nights report I said “Still think the market is overheated and due for a pullback” and today we took advantage of it. We will see what the GDP report says, but I will lean short for the time being after the holiday hooplah.
Nothing worth trading on these today so ignored them.
Last nights report I said “TLT should be in play if we get the market reversal for a bit. A conservative way to go (slow moving).” It was green and is a buy now at 121.70 I think. But I’ll wait to add on more of these until after the GDP report.
Oil got a reversal again with more news out of OPEC. Multiple reasons to ignore it right now, but with the biggest reason being our trading vehicles UWTI and DWTI are disappearing. We will find substitutes that qualify. GUSH, and exploration ETF did not move with oil today. It’s like GASL which you don’t see me talk about with UGAZ. Both GUSH and GASL are low volume too and difficult to play. I prefer more volume ETFs and will have to do some homework.
UGAZ topped out pre-market and we sold remaining shares at 34.19, and it continued south to the low 33’s before rising again to move over 35 a couple times. I didn’t want to trade what I thought would be a volatile day for it but we could have maybe had one more trade from it. It was a busy day for me looking at other opportunities that were short the market where I felt the risk vs. reward was easier for you.
Precious Metals and Mining Stocks
In last nights report I said about JNUG price actino that it was “a bullish setup and why I wrote in my closing alert on Friday the following;
“I am taking some JNUG shares home with me but not going crazy. Is this the beginning of my cost averaging into a long JNUG position? I prefer that starts under 6 for JNUG but for whatever reason I don’t want to miss this run higher should we somehow get a reversal over the weekend. In other words, I want exposure and am willing to take a hit if wrong, sell Monday for a loss but know full well I am 1000% going to get back in and ride JNUG up for a bit. ”
I did get a little too conservative with the 4% move up from Friday, but finally got us back in. Then I got conservative with the stop. After locking in a little profit and seeing the dollar go green, I didn’t want a complete whipsaw with the market makers coming back looking for ways to profit. But they surprised me today being so dang lazy.
