On Major Moves, Grandich has been very right and not only saved many investors fortunes, but expanded them dramatically. On November 3, 2007 at the MoneyTalks Survival Conference, Peter Grandich of the Grandich Letter warned that “an unprecedented economic tsunami will hit American beginning in 2008”. Peter advised publicly to short the US market two days from the top in October, 2007 and stayed short until the last week of October, 2008. He began to buy stocks in March 7th, 2009. He also bought oil and oil related investments near the lows after the dive from $147.

U.S. Stock Market – I noted in my September 23rd post that despite poor fundamentals, the technical picture of the market was much brighter. A run to the upper end of the trading range was possible and even more likely now that we’ve broke above the previously mentioned neckline. The trading range I’ve spoken about continues and it appears we can now test the top of it. If this occurs, it may offer speculators a chance to implement some bearish call spreads. Stay tuned.
Gold and Silver – I noted about midday last Friday to book some profits as some overbought readings were showing up on my charts. This is in no way anything remotely close to some bearish stance but rather 25+ years of experience has taught me to take something off the table during the times you have been on target.
A day, a week or even a little longer sideways to somewhat lower would actually be a good thing IMHO. If we just shoot up again this week, we could set ourselves up for a far sharper correction then is needed at this time.
U.S. Dollar – It’s becoming too easy to predict its ups and downs. Eating broken glass after peering into a crystal ball for over 25 years makes it much easier at my age now to put my tail between my legs versus beat my chest for all to see. We should see some consolidation under the 80 area before the next leg lower.
U.S. Bonds, Oil and Natural Gas – I continue to hold no positions long or short in my model asset allocation
