XIV - Parabolic Trump Trade Coming to an End!!

As predicted by the model, XIV went parabolic this year.  Price has achieved the minimum parabolic target, and is reaching into overthrow territory. 

The "Trump trade" is coming to it's end.

It is early, and the overthrow will take time to play out.  The parabola, of course, will end very badly.  Complacency is extreme, and that is foretelling of a massive drop ahead during the next 1 year timeframe.

Long term support for XIV is at $30.

"The movement in volatility is unprecedented.  XIV has broken above channel resistance, and is configuring into a parabolic melt up. 

Complacency is going parabolic which ultimately is extremely bearish for the S&P 500."

Silver - Update - Bear Market Continuing

Silver has declined for more than 1 year after reaching the Cycle high identified in the Summer of 2016.  Silver has been down for more than 6 years, and is the weakest market on the board.

Silver has struggled at horizontal resistance, but may attempt to test the 2016 high with the bear market to resume thereafter.  There is no sign of a bottom.  Silver will take years to finally reach the bottom.  

Weekly Chart
















Before:

June 25, 2016:

"Silver formed the double bottom blue arrow lows late last year as anticipated in the Cycle.  The result was a significant bounce. 

Silver is approaching a critical high in the Cycle.  It may seem tempting to view Gold and Silver as a safe haven with turmoil in the market. 

Any safe haven behavior is likely short lived according to the Cycle with a relentless decline directly ahead."
