America is on the cusp of yet another opportunity to change the outcome and reverse a potential ‘One World Order’ and financial reorganization on an international scale. On September 13th Saturn will make an exact square to the Federal Reserve’s Neptune, a transit that is inharmonious and suggests bankruptcy and potentially a block to further QE3.
Saturn is the ‘old reaper’ that keeps a perfect set of books and won’t lend out a dime until all the accounts are in order, and Neptune is the planet of grand financial illusions that are so vague you cannot pin then down. There is another influence with this transit that can bring stubbornness and insubordination at the same time, so we could see more QE that is under the radar or very secret.
Gold’s latest rally – and the dollar’s recent decline – has the
investing world buzzing with speculation as to the meaning behind it.
Convention wisdom says that gold senses another round of loose money on
the part of the world’s leading central banks. But what few investors
have considered is that gold is most likely serving its role as a crisis
barometer, warning of trouble ahead on the economic horizon.
There’s no denying that gold is riding a wave of momentum born of a
deeply oversold technical condition from earlier this summer. As we
discussed back in July, the 10-month price oscillator for gold hit an
historic “oversold” reading of negative 227, which is the most
sold-out reading in over 10 years for the metal. This more than any
other factor set the stage for gold’s explosive breakout in August.

Now that GLD has taken off like a rocket the last few days the question arises “how does one manage the risks?”. That being the risks of chasing a stock and sitting through a pullback right after one buys?
Ever get caught up in the moment only to see shortly thereafter the stock pulls back after you are in? Isn’t it at those times you wished you had just remained calm, cool and collected to enable you to get a better fill?
That’s called chasing a bus here at All About Trends and every day we hammer the point home — do NOT chase buses, but instead wait for stocks to come to you via orderly pullbacks where you are buying a lower, risk adverse entry point.
One way that you can start to apply that type of thinking is to implement a disciplined method to the madness vs. getting caught up in the moment. The way we do that is via chart and employ the use of basic chart reading skills.
Gold-Stock ETF Rising
As gold enters into a season of fundamental strength and what should be a powerful new upleg, there ought to be rekindled interest in gold stocks. In fact, if gold indeed rallies the gold-stock sector will likely see a much-more-powerful upleg than the metal considering how oversold it’s been. And one of the first places investors will go when they are drawn to this sector is the venerable GDX Gold Miners ETF.
GDX was the first gold-stock ETF when it was born in 2006. And with net assets of nearly $8.0b, today it is the largest of its kind. GDX’s strong correlation history with gold has made it a popular destination for institutional investors and hedge funds, while also being a hot spot for the casual retail investor looking to hedge individual-company risk. And of course GDX’s primary allure is its ability to positively leverage the underlying metal, really the only reason to own any gold stock.

Weekly Market Update Excerpt
Aug 31, 2012
Gold was a star performer during the month of August, outshining other assets in an impressive rally which took many investors by surprise. Many analysts attributed gold’s strength to investors’ expectations of another monetary rescue operation from the Federal Reserve. But as we’ll see in this commentary, such an action is not only unlikely but unnecessary to gold’s continued strength.
After a vigorous rally last week, gold investors adopted a cautious tone ahead of Friday’s annual gathering of central bankers and finance ministers at Jackson Hole, Wyoming. During the 2-day meeting, investors will be on the lookout for verbal hints that the U.S. Fed may implement another monetary stimulus, which would benefit the gold price. Ultimately, hopes of another quantitative easing (QE) program will likely be disappointed due to a recent spate of positive economic and consumer spending reports. But this doesn’t mean gold won’t be able to benefit from the other economic variables in the mixing pot. Let’s take a look at some of these variables.
Why Everybody's Going To War in the Middle East

Iran Wants War
Although a peaceful nation for hundreds of years, Iran was invaded and occupied by the Allies in both World War One and Two. Then in 1980, at the urging of the United States, Saddam Hussein invaded them and used poison gas against both Kurds and Iran. Over 500,000 civilians, Iranian and Iraqi soldiers died in the longest war of the 20th century, which lasted until 1988.
Iran wants war because they believe they can withstand an Israel and US air assault and that unless they are invaded and occupied they can claim victory. No Middle East nation has ever been victorious against either the US or Israel and to declare victory against both will make Iran the leading nation across the entire region, at least for the people in the street. An Israel/US assault would also solve growing domestic political problems against the regime.
