    GLD Update. I had discussed a GLD Bull Call spread in this video - it went south but is now coming back to life. GLD closing towards $121.50 by end of week will make it modestly profitable

    I feel this episode is thus far the best as compared to other past Dave's videos. Clearer depiction on the rationale behind each trade/non-trade, as well as how price levels are forecasted and derived

    I find your way of presenting very value adding. I am not an EW trader, BUT you touched on being consistent in your process, being process oriented, and being mindful in regards to price action => Ty

    Cyavash - thanks for the question. I will not likely do deep educational lessons on EW here at RVTV - my aim is to provide forecasts based on EW. I listed the resources in an earlier answer....

    Hi Tom...thanks for the question. You picked a pair that is fiendish - as many colleagues call it - the 'eye gouger'. regardless, I do not track it to the pip,but my call generally is for....

    Dave, It looks like the SPX and gold are starting to roll over (dollar up). Is this a possible correlation and can it last a while in your opinion? Great presentation by the way.

    Looking forward to future videos, but somewhat skeptical of EW. Hope Dave will define some of those Elliot Wave "rules," demonstrate how he applied, and why he thinks chose over other possible counts

    Charley - random waves/fibs? Please - generalizations are of little help. Bad trade calls? Sure we all have them - I noticed you left out the other 70% that did work. Let's just deal with facts.

    Dude is just drawing a bunch of random waves and fibs. I would just look at the past track record of recs. Buying puts on GS and IWM (whoops). "gold call spread up 25%"..prob down 50%+ today

    The key here for new people to grasp is Dave's principles and discipline. The trader is slave to the market (not other way round). Cut losers; ride winners. Pre-determined entry/exit points etc.

    Great analysis as always. I agree with your bearish sentiment; the continued rally has been perplexing. Could price action be hinting that BOJ is ready to intervene and reignite the Yen carry trade?
