    Dave - Are you still bullish GLD / NGD in the near term? Tough week. Any stops set up for these? Seems higher gold trend (in the short time) may break soon. Thanks!

    Does anyone have an actual concrete analysis that demonstrates EWT and/or FIB are any more statistically significant methods of trading than coin tossing or random selection? Three minutes into this monetized content I'm seeing much of the same theory that permeates the free and public internet. I am looking for better insights than this.

    Love your comments on experience of fund managers today!! Independent shout from folks like you, Michael Lewitt and of course Raoul and Grant must be closely watched to have any chance of saving wealth and maybe making some on top!

    I am surprised that nobody at RV has given any serious commentary on the Brazilian Real or Brazilian asset prices? Dave, does going long on BRL at these levels make sense?

    Great presentation Dave. NGD closed today at 4.75. I've been in and out once. If you were to put that trade on for the first time now what would your stop be keeping in mind the volatility and having the view that this is a long term trade as gold looks to continue higher?

    Thanks for the comment Mike Z.....although I would respectfully disagree. Perhaps you can share your approach that would not be lagging in terms of the conclusions it draws?

    Nothing special as far as I am concerned. Seems like you are a price chaser, Dave. I don't know much about Elliott Wave, seems like nothing but a mathematical indicator, therefore a lagging indicator.

    Another fantastic video, Dave. Yourself and Peter Brandt are my favourates when it coms to making technical analyses of macro trends comprehensible, interesting and useful to professional and non-professional invrestors alike. Huge insight provided in your comments about maybe now getting back proper 'price-discovery' markets.... only on realvision!

    Dave, during the two days since your video, NGD has had some pretty dramatic moves. Does any of that call into question the breakout?

    What I would say is that if you agree with my assessment that USD (Dollar Index) is going higher - then you know where USD/CAD is going......higher.

    Dimitris - thanks for the question. By and large fighting trends, The Fed or any other 'force' larger than yourself is a fools game. However, there are times when you might get a sense that the tide is shifting. I sense that here and have the position structured in a way that has limited risk with a very solid payoff if correct.

    One of the best videos Dave has given. And as usual, it's not because Dave points to certain assets. If you're hunting for nuggets and tips, you've already lost. It's the whole framework you've got to pay attention to. His blend of the bigger picture with the TA, not concerned with calling tops or bottoms, scaling into a trade, raising stop loss to a risk free position when winning, assessing reward vs risk and the ability to think independently. It was all there. Wonderful.

    Hi Dave, You did mention that you choose not to fight the FED in relation to going short the SPX. Nevertheless, going short the BWX, seems to me that you choose to fight the ECB.

    FYI NGD has hedged its gold, buying $1200 puts and selling $1400 calls against nearly its entire output. If gold tops $1400, NGD could sell off or stagnate compared to other miners.

    Dave, Thanks for your prompt Brexit response. I get the sense since you are long both the dollar and gold, that you, like I, do not place much reliance on gold as the "anti-dollar" but rather gold as an independent currency. Have you performed any correlation studies on gold vs dollar to quantify the correlation as a function of world events? James Kobus

    Excellent analysis & commentary Dave! I am in some of the same trades: ka-ching. I should've stayed in my vrx short from 119 but closed out at 83 last year (could not stomach the volatility) I should've re-shorted - ugh...

    Hi Daniel - stops are nearly always based on Elliott Wave/Fib levels that would suggest the basis for the trade is no longer valid.
