Todd Sohn is one of my favorite guys to talk to about the markets. He often sends me charts that no one else is looking at and points out important data that most people aren’t talking about. His unique perspective on the market definitely makes him stand out from the rest. Todd and his team at Strategas do great work and it’s a real pleasure to have him on the podcast. In this conversation we discuss the current environment for US Stocks, Interest Rates, Precious Metals and the sentiment driving current trends. He offers good advice for both new technicians and seasoned veterans. If you’re at all interested in the market, this is an episode you can’t miss. Enjoy! [Read more…]

Ari Wald is always one of my favorite Technical Analysts. Him and I were trained around the same time so we look at the market in a very similar way. Today Ari is the Head of Technical Analysis at Oppenheimer in New York and we’re very lucky to have him on the podcast. If you’re interested in learning more about Ari, go back and listen to his guest appearance in Season 1 (EP 2). In this episode, Ari and I discuss the current state of the US Stock Market. Included in the analysis are breadth measurements, important levels, smoothing mechanisms and sector rotation. Him and I can talk forever about this stuff so the time felt like it flew by. We covered a ton of material in a very short period of time. I hope you enjoy this one as much as I did! [Read more…]
In this Episode of Allstarcharts Weekly, Steve and I talk about the recent strength in Gold, even in the face of a Dollar that has yet to start falling. After Thursday and Friday’s turn around, I think it’s finally time for the Dollar to weaken. The way I see it, the relative strength we’ve seen in Gold was a heads up that the Dollar is set to fall. The correlation between Japanese Yen and Gold Miners on a relative basis is the intermarket relationship that stands out the most. [Read more…]
I’ve been a fan of Tony Dwyer’s work for a long time. Those of you who know me see me approach the market from a top/down global macro and intermarket perspective. Tony starts his process in a similar way at Cannacord Genuity and Dwyerstrategy.com. When we’re talking about the next direction for stocks, we both focus on other assets like credit to help identify big trends. We look at the behavior of commodity and currency markets to make decisions in equities. I thought this was a really fun conversation. I particularly enjoyed Tony’s comparisons to 1995 and what was going on then with respect to the President’s public issues, interest rates, precious metals and the US Dollar. This podcast could have gone on forever if we let it, but we kept it short and concise so we could get to the point quickly. [Read more…]
Do you see how stocks and gold can make new highs at the same time? Who said they couldn’t? Why does it have to be one or the other? The current market environment is a great reminder of this. Don’t forget it.
So? Should we expect Gold and Silver to keep going? [Read more…]
