The Currency War Big Picture Analysis for Gold, Silver & Stocks

I think you will admit that we are in the middle of one major crazy financial mess.  The part that makes things really crazy is that it’s not just in the United States anymore but rather serious global problem which if not handled properly could change the way we live our lives going forward or possibly even spark some type of war, hopefully things don’t get that crazy… But I do know one thing. Fear is the most powerful force on the planet and people do some crazy things when they are backed into a corner.

Anyways, on a more positive tone… today China decided to help provide more liquidity for the financial system along with the central banks. This news triggered a monster rally in overnight trading making the market gap up sharply at the opening bell. This news did hit the US dollar index hard sending it sharply lower but the question remains “Will today’s news be a one week hiccup in the market?” If Euroland starts printing money it will likely send the dollar higher and stocks lower for 6- 12 months.

Just today I was joking with Kerry Lutz of the Financial Survivor Network about how each country should just give each other country a second chance. Wipe the dept clean and start over knowing this time around exactly how each country truly operates at a financial level allowing everyone to avoid a repeat of this BS. Some countries will get off way better than others because they would get so much dept wiped clean but isn’t it better than years of problems and possibly wars over food, gold, guns, oil and Canadian water? – EH

All joking aside, let’s take a look at the weekly long term charts…

Dollar Index Showing Possible Massive Rally If Euro Starts Printing Money:

I’m sure my off the cuff options/thoughts will cause a stir but I am fine with that. Everyone I talk to is thinking the dollar is about to fall off a cliff while I think it’s very possible that it does just the opposite. Either way I will be looking to benefit from which ever move unfolds.

Long Term Thoughts:

I would first like to say that tonight’s report is out of my norm. Generally I do not focus on the big picture negative stuff and I like to avoid it for a few reasons… One, it’s just downright depressing to talk and think about. And Second I don’t want to be labelled as one of those “The Sky Is Falling” kinds of guys.

So, that being said I think these charts above show a situation what is very possible to happen in the coming 6-12 months. Keep in mind that my focus is on short term time frames as it allows me to avoid and actually profit from major market moves while providing enough information for my followers to learn technical analysis and trade management. And the obvious idea of not looking too far into the future with a negative outlook…

With headline risk changing the market direction on a weekly basis, this negative outlook could easily change in a couple months. I will recap on the big picture as things unfold in January/February.

Talk to you soon,

Chris Vermeulen is the Founder and Chief Technical Analyst of He has more than a decade of extensive experience trading stocks, indices, ETFs, CFDs and Futures. His next-generation trading style has been thoroughly refined over the years, blending the best of all that has come before with the cutting-edge approaches that have only been possible with modern advances in systems and diverse technologies. He believes he represents the ideal combination of both the old and new school trading techniques including pioneering a number of breakthroughs entirely his own.                   IN HIS OWN WORDS "It is this blend of the time-tested and innovatively new that allows me to take advantage of bull, bear and flat markets regardless of how each week plays out. I've repeatedly observed that one of the biggest keys to making a lot of money in challenging markets involves aiming for big, quick returns, while maintaining an extraordinary focus on minimizing risk. This may be what most distinguishes what I provide vs. the experiences delivered by the vast majority of other newsletters. More simply, I hate to lose on any trade, so I've evolved my own models with an emphasis on yielding a superior win ratio, without having to be too conservative on the types of trades I'll take. I can aim high so that we can win big... but when we lose, we aim to always pinch those losses as small as possible. Many of my competitors tout crazy high profit potentials, but they seem to employ models that deliver crazy high loss realities for their subscribers. How they stay in business, I don't understand. What I do understand is that subscribers must see bottom line results. While at a quick glance my strategy does not look real exciting, remember I post real numbers/results that members and myself have made. Also my daily videos and intraday updates help individuals scale out at better prices than what is posted on the track record. So I think it's my consistency in winning that moves them to offer such glowing praise. My company- Technical Traders Ltd.- has thoroughly established a stellar reputation as a provider of lower risk solutions for subscribers seeking bigger returns without the roller coaster risk. You've probably seen me on many of the websites and publications listed in the right column, or perhaps in others not included. I'm proud of the fact that so many find what I have to offer so valuable. My goals are simple: to provide my subscribers with novice-friendly analysis, the very best cherry-picked recommendations & outstanding trader education and, MOST IMPORTANTLY, to help people just like you make a lot of money while growing their trading knowledge & confidence. The market is something I literally think about every waking hour. My life's work is to not only out-perform the market each year but to also make some real money. I share the fruits of all that labor with my subscribers, always striving to deliver value well beyond my subscription fee. There is no other business more intriguing, exciting or potentially more profitable than being involved in the markets! And I believe my thoroughly proven trading strategies are as straightforward and simple as they can get. Join me and I'll work extraordinarily hard toward helping you grow as a trader while realizing opportunities and profits beyond your expectations." Listen to a recent interview with Chris Vermeulen.
