Argentus' Golden Quarter

I'm an analyst of market rhythms. At basic level this would be looking at market cycles, but there are other rhythms which are intermittent, or once off, or even created by weather events, or created by market manipulators behind the scenes, and that is the kind of thing I specialize in.

The Setup For The Big Trade forum at TFMR contains a single stream of my research relating to gold and silver in particular, freely available in text form. Approximately every 4th week I post a more macro article which can be found in my blog at TFMR, in Argentus's Golden Quarter. My subscription video newsletter is released several times a week with this and similar information about other markets too. It's called Rhythm 'n Price (RNP) and is both long term and short term in nature with specific trading ideas.

Two and a quarter years ago Argentus Maximus wrote a gold forecast in his Blog. Here is the look back at how it worked out.

The LBMA, Thomson/Reuters GFMS, and The 2000 Tonnes of Gold that Just Appeared in 2013

A comparison by Ronan Manly at BullionStar between an LBMA report pdf file and the earlier saved version of the same named file suggests that 2000 tonnes of gold in 2013 was shall we say "redefined" by way of explanation as to where it may have originated?

Taxpayers and gold ETF stockholders might like to have an audit of their central bank vaults and/or ETF vaults completed ASAP, as well as of their accounting books relating to gold transactions during 2013, just to be absolutely sure everything is present and correct and nothing fishy was going on. Simple reassurance will surely be issued, but audits seem appropriate given the amounts of capital involved.

Can we assume it's not the stock market? Given the week's crashy style of markets I mean! Hah! But let's play a game of assume it's not the stock market . And I have Central Bankers going crazy in October, so if it's not the stock market what else might it be? Calling Japan ... come in Japan .... Japan, are you there? Japan! ........ California, Illinois ... Greece ... Ukraine .... Anybody in bondland.... please answer ... How did we land inside this zombie movie?

What else might it be? Let me consult my current issue of " Trusty Doomster's List of Worries ". Ah, here we are .....

Monthly Gold Cycles by Argentus Maximus

This is pretty much presented without comment, except to suggest that you might like to look up the various cycle period lengths found, and go try them out for yourself to see how well they do or don't fit the fresh events gradually becoming included into the valuation of gold.

Sales and Power: Fear, Reassurance, Criticism, Acceptance, and the "What's That" Moment

Personal balance and an enquiring curious critical mindset are essential for making successful investments in financial markets. Personal balance ia also required to deal with bad or partial information, and also to contain inner tendencies for making a tilted inner evaluation of a neutral external situation.

Then there are the manipulating strings connected to us which make us act as puppet, jumping and dancing to the pull of those ever so tenuous and totally invisible "strings".

After a while of looking hard we begin to notice some of the strings, and eventually we trace them back and discover that many people, organizations, random events or even nature itself are all pullers of our strings. We are a part of our environment, gifted with intelligence, and it is better for us if we use it.

Outstanding Resources on How To Make Money with Charts - by Argentus Maximus

Several times I have been asked for a reading list which can be used to raise the quality and ability of prospective investors and traders.

Here it is.

Sorry Ben Graham-ites! Your master didn't make the (my!) cut because this list is about the practical use of charts and intended to work on all timeframes. On a more serious note the Graham and Dodds thesis can be alternatively represented on charts as an approximate 10 or 20 years trading range which stock prices, earnings, and returns of assets employed, oscillate within and can be accordingly traded.

Very long term secular trends are turning but this takes many years. Interest rates are at 60, 120 and 300 year lows. Reversal of trends always creates churning and price fluctuations and we should expect more of that.
