Meet Gold’s Little Brother… and Two Ways He Can Make You Money

The aftermath of Brexit created an absolutely beautiful “blue light special” for equities. And even gold – specifically SPDR Gold Shares (NYSE: GLD) – moved higher, peaking around July 8th at $130.52.

Amid all the excitement, though, you probably didn’t notice gold’s “little brother.”

But you should have…

This often-forgotten commodity correlates pretty well with gold and lasted one week longer, peaking at $19.39 on July 13th.

And you still have a chance to make a profit.

In fact, here are two different ways you can do so…

Pay Less and Earn More Using These Three Simple Price Patterns

As you may recall from Wednesday, I said that I wouldn’t be surpised if we prices move higher this week. I also said to keep your eyes on three different events this week that had the potential to drive the markets higher or lower.

And so far, the news has been good…

We haven’t gotten any bad earnings surprises from the big banks yet, jobless claims are holding at nearly a 43-year low, and this week’s Bloomberg Consumer Confidence Index report revealed that consumer confidence in the U.S. is the highest it’s been since October 2015.

Now I already showed you how to “use a rectangle” to track the current price trend in the stock market trend.

But I also mentioned that there are additional patterns you may find in the charts – three, in particular…

So today, I’m going to show you exactly what they are –

And how they’ll signal when it’s time to make money…

How This “Rectangle” Will Tell You if the Markets will Shift by Friday

The bulls continue to dominate, with the S&P 500 hitting a record high of 2,152.14, the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) setting a new closing high of 18,347.67, and the NASDAQ closing at 5,022.82 – it’s highest since late December 2015.

But three upcoming events this week could send the markets up or down – dramatically.

So I’m going to show you a unique way to spot a potential shift in the current bullish trend… using shapes.

And by the time you’re done reading, you’ll know each one of the three upcoming catalysts and how to pinpoint trading opportunities – no matter which way the markets move.

Milk Earnings Season with the Stock Market’s Most Lucrative Pattern

As hard as it is to believe, we’re already halfway through the year.

And come Monday, Alcoa (NYSE: AA) “unofficially” heads off second-quarter earnings season, which means that we could be looking at some instability in the markets – despite June’s strong jobs report.

Now pundits have mixed opinions of what to expect…. Some are calling for a “frightening” earnings season while others are expecting strong results.

Regardless of who ends up being right, we’re not immune to earnings “surprises” that could drive the markets higher or lower.

In the first quarter, for example, energy companies shocked the markets by beating their expected earnings by 28.7%. But even so, we saw the largest decline -56.6% – in the overall energy sector in the first quarter.

So today, I’m going to show you a classic pattern you can use to milk earnings this quarter… surprises and all.

How to Rescue Profits from Volatile Markets

The U.S. jobs report for June just came out and shows the strongest month of hiring since last October – with 287,000 jobs being added. And although the unemployment rate ticked up to 4.9%, up 0.20% from May, the markets are soaring.

But there’s no telling whether this bounce in the markets will last…

The fact of the matter is, we’ve still got second-quarter earnings to prepare for, and investors are still uncertain of the after-effects from the Brexit vote. And that means the markets are more likely to react to news – good or bad – which could put your trades in jeopardy.

So timing your exits has never been more crucial.

When you get out of your trades too early, you could miss out on thousands in profits.

And when you get out too late, you risk the trade going against you, turning a winning trade into a loser.

Whether it’s the jobs report, GDP numbers, the Chinese markets, the price of oil, or anything else making headlines – I want to make sure you don’t lose your money in volatile markets.

So today, I’m going to show you the only two numbers you’ll ever need to know to confidently (and profitably) make your exits.

Let’s get started…

The New Way to Exploit “Old Faithful”

You remember gold, right?

Now we’re obviously long past the days where you could walk into a hotel, throw down a coin, and get a room, drink, meal, and hot bath.

And today, no one walks around with bullion in their pockets. Gold isn’t considered a “currency” anymore. It’s something you store in your lock box in case of a zombie apocalypse.

But while it seems pretty logical and reasonable to store it away until doomsday arrives…

There’s actually a much faster way to get some mileage out of your gold hoard.

So forget the mattress and the floorboards.

Here’s something much better to do with your gold…

No Matter What’s Next, These Can Save You from Brexit

The markets have a habit of climbing the wall of worry.

We saw this very clearly on Friday when the markets spiraled deep into the red, with the Dow trading down by over 600 points.

And we continued to see the after-effects throughout the day on Monday.

But investors’ shell-shock seems to be wearing off a bit. The markets gapped up yesterday, with the DJIA closing 270 points higher.

Even so…

Uncertainty still lingers over what will happen
next… and if this gradual “bounce back” is here to stay.

Now I showed you a way to play Brexit before Britain even voted…

And today, I’m going to show you what your next steps should be from here… no matter what happens.

The Two Biggest Mistakes Options Traders Make Every Day

Have you ever found yourself  in one (or both) of the following situations?

You close out your trade and take your profits… Three days later, you’re cursing your computer screens because of all the money you missed out on…

That’s because in either case, you made two very big – and all too common – mistakes…
