Markets are connected - Fact!

Recommended Posts

Just for fun I thought I'd throw this out and see if anyone has any strong feeling on it.


While I analyse markets individually and assess them on their own technical merits, even eschewing fundamentals, except big ticket items for long term trend creation (e.g. GDP, unemployment and interest rates), I do believe that all financial markets are connected in some way, sometimes obviously and sometimes less so.  However this connection is not constant in terms of cause and effect, especially in the short to medium term.  When it works though it really works.  Take just now for instance:


  • Stock markets are falling and gold/silver is on a charge (however gold did not drop when stock markets were on the recent rally, just went into a sideways range)
  • Stock markets turn just as Oil and Copper turns (silver stutters more than gold because of its industrial usage?)
  • Platinum and Palladium also stuttering like silver and then gold starts to drop too (jitters catch on everywhere and gold is not cheap!  But it will probably rally again if stock markets continue to drop?) 
  • USDCAD pops as Oil drops and USD DX starts to move up
  • Same for AUSUSD (in reverse) as Copper (a mining indicator) drops
  • Stock markets under pressure, cue flood to safety of cash (i.e. USD) GBP/EUR also drop vs USD and JPY surge is halted (will it now reverse?)

It is not consistent and hard to spot the correlations in advance but when you can and it works it is a a sight to see...


Medium term it look to me like a final leg down in Dr Copper and Oil and final leg up for USD together with that big drop in stock markets we have been looking for.  Cue Bull run in precious metals, the current move is a natural retrace and who knows what will happen in the bond markets but if they crack then ****!

One additional thought regarding Gold, which seems to be on many peoples minds right now as a safe haven.  We like to think that Gold moves contrary to the stock market but if you look at a long term chart for Gold and S&P over the past 20 years or so you will see some consistency of direction.  The two markets only really parted ways in 2011 when Gold peaked.


So watch out if part of your trading approach assumes Gold will rally when stock markets fall and vice versa.

    • Here we go!!! Gold making record highs 🚀🚀🚀 The level to watch going forward is 2133 👀, which is the weekly cyclical resistance. We need a close (preferably 1%) above this level at the end of the week before moving any higher. High volatility is to be expected throughout December. 🤑

Some stocks will make new highs, and some won’t, but they will still have the same wave count and I will explain this in today’s video. That said there are stocks like Tesla that are different, however they will move the same on an intraday basis, just with different Elliott wave counts.

    • Thanks. A really interesting video and some interesting statistics and analysis. I haven't the time to go back and analyse whether a strong November increases the chance of there not being a Santa rally, although one of the slides highlights that the negative Santa Rally years were tied with poor November returns for the market such as 2000, 2008 etc which seems a contradiction.  Would I short and back against it happening? When it occurs in over 80% of years... absolutely not.  The Santa Rally – Christmas Growth in the Stock Market. (moneysandi.com)
