This is the seasonal strength for gold, and looks lined up for a seasonal move. The 15 and 20 day are pointing higher, which implies a short and intermediate trend which is a good setup for the seasonal trade ahead.

For financials in general, seasonal strength is in the first half of the year, but not particularly strong for the back half. This one has been doing quite well during its off-season. The chart shows the 20 day is moving higher, a positive short-term trend. 50 day is curling higher, implying a renewed positive intermediate term trend. Technically, it is approaching resistance at $35.77. Pulling back today and wouldn’t be surprised to see some consolidation.

The energy sector, particularly the energy exploration and production industry, tends to have 2 periods of seasonal strength. The first one is from January all the way through to May. The next period is just approaching, basically the last half of summer all the way through to Labour Day. The average gain for August and mid-September is about 5%. Trends are still very much positive. 1.9% dividend yield.

Energy is positive coming up, but the chart on this one is not that appealing. It just broke through the 50 day a few days ago, and there has been significant underperformance against the market over the past month. There are signs that this one is trending lower.

(A Top Pick April 22/14. Up 0.43%.) This is equivalent to a cash holding, and is about 32% of his fund right now. This is a short-term duration bond ETF, and provides a hedge against the volatility that is frequent at this time of year. He intends this to be his holding through until October.

(A Top Pick April 22/14. Down 7.3%.) Broke below a head and shoulders pattern yesterday. The period of seasonal strength generally is from April through until November. It is definitely time to step aside and get out if you own.
