Current Thoughts 1-27-2015 Midday Report – JNUG and JDST Trades

When I write my Current Thoughts I mention the words “higher high” in trading the various ETFs. In explaining this pull up a chart of JNUG which you can find here: http://finance.yahoo.com/q?s=JNUG
Click on the 1 day chart for reference (as shown below).
The following analysis is based on price action only. No Elliott Wave analysis. No fibonacci, RSI, etc. gobblygook. One can successfully trade these triple leveraged ETFs based on price action and some simple rules.
The higher high came twice on JNUG, once at $39 and again at 9:47am EST or again at 10:33am EST at $39.80. Both could have been good short term trades where one could have locked in profit.
Technically you had one more higher high but it occurred during lunch time which is never a great time to trade.
If you look at the 3 month chart on JNUG we had 3 higher lows which is bullish. If indeed we are bullish (and gold would have to confirm) then JNUG could go to 45.55. A break of 46 and it’s off to the races to possibly 56.
On the flip side I wouldn’t even touch JDST today till a break of 7.66. See chart here: http://finance.yahoo.com/q?s=jdst&ql=1  A break of 8.07 and it would be a nice trade to 8.50 possibly 9.00. A break over 9.55 and 13.92 might be next stop.
Some of these would be swing trades, obviously. But look for the trend and only trade a reversal if gold agrees (and keep in mind yesterday was an enigma and not the norm where we saw gold down and the mining ETFs up nicely).
What many don’t realize is these two ETFs are not opposites of each other and should not be held for too long. JNUG is down 83.79% the last year and JDST is down 74.26%. Why would anyone in their right mind put money into these? The answer is, if you are on the right side of the trade, you can earn 10% in one day. But if you guess wrong, you can lose 10% or more in one day. That’s why you keep stops!
JNUG is up 9.88% today and JDST down 10.14%. UGAZ up 6.28% and UWTI 5.84%, two that I mentioned I like yesterday.
Dollar was down big earlier today with market. Fear trade was on I think and gold benefited. But the stock market is coming back down less than 200 points at present.
From this point of time in trading today I would look at the above prices for the right trade based on the trend and with an eye on gold prices as well as the potential for reversals. If a trade goes to a higher high and then reverses below where you got in, a stop should be in place so as to not let the trade turn into big losses. On the flip side, move your stops up on a profitable trade and don’t marry these ETFs for too long. TAKE PROFIT! Another trade is just around the corner.

Gold and Silver Stock Mining Package

We will be coming out with a mining package where we pick what we believe to be the best mining stocks to buy based on my research the last 8 months. We have been patient in releasing this because of the timing in purchasing these mining stocks can be tricky. We were one of the only one’s who recommended selling mining stocks in September of 2010 when the HUI was trading at 512.56. Much has transpired in the mining industry since that call with many companies disappearing or being taken over. Today many companies are struggling and if we do get a further pullback in the price of gold and silver, more companies will go bankrupt. Knowing which companies have the best opportunity moving forward will be key to you getting returns that we believe will be in the 100% to 500% range, and possibly much higher for some of the miners. This package will be released in the next few weeks and we will announce it on the site.
