$10,000 Thursday – Last Week’s Silver Play Beats BitCoin

Who says you can't make money in this market?

In yesterday's Live Trading Webinar we closed out the long Silver (/SI) trade we discussed in last week's Webinar, as well as last Thursday's PSW Report, where I said:

We actually picked up some Silver Futures (/SI) as they fell back to $15.85 and that's down $2.15 (12%) since September and our 5% Rule™ says that's a 10% drop with a 20% overshoot and, while that's no guarantee of a bottom (real support comes at $15.50) – it's worth a poke down here as we don't expect the Dollar to pop 94 very easily and Gold (/YG) is testing $1,250, which is good support on the yellow side.  

Yesterday's Fed Statement sent both gold and silver flying higher (and BitCoin lower) and we took the money and ran live, during the Webinar with a $10,000 overall gain on 8 contracts that gained 0.25 each at $50 per penny, per contract (the day's gain is coming of a dip).  It's not that we don't still like gold and silver – it's just that making $10,000 in a week is good money – so why risk a reversal?  If they don't pull back to give us another entry, then we'll find something else to trade (and we identified several in yesterday's Webinar).  

The reason we're cautious today is the Dollar (/DX) is down at 93 and that's too low, especially with our Fed in a tighening cycle and already the BOE failed to match the raise and, if the ECB holds off on raising rates too, the Dollar will pop so, this morning, in our Live Member Chat Room, I said to our Members:

If ECB stays easy then Dollar likely to pop so I do like /DX long over 93 with tight stops below.

I think /CL can be played long over $56.50 with tight stops below and /RB over $1.65 with tight stops below now.
