Seasonally, we are entering a period that is strong for metal and mining stocks. This is the time of year when copper tends to move higher, more so in November and December and the 1st quarter of the year. Production tends to do tremendously well in the 1st quarter, and even into the 1st half. Technically it is holding above its 200-day moving average, and hitting resistance at $1.60. Momentum is still positive, so he suspects it will continue bumping up against that. Once you have the breakout above $1.60, you should see significant highs ahead. (See Top Picks.)

An industrial company, so we are entering a time when industrial companies tend to do quite well. Technically, it is holding support at around its 50-day moving average. It has pulled back recently, but this is just alleviating a parabolic rise that we have seen since the start of the year. We should see support of their 50-day moving average. It is still producing higher highs and higher lows, and that trend is your friend.

Seasonally, between Dec 10 and April 3 is the optimal time to buy this. During that time, you have accumulated an average return of about 3% above the benchmark rate. It has been positive in 13 of the past 17 periods. Technically, it is holding support at the longer-term moving average. In the last couple of days, financials have broken out. (See Top Picks.)

We are beyond the period of seasonal strength for gold stocks. From June 16 to October 9, this has generated a return of 1.71%. That is the period of seasonal strength for gold commodity and producers. Technically, the chart shows a bit of a head and shoulders pattern. If we get a break below the 200-day moving average of about $5, you could see significant lows ahead. Thinks gold miners are a great buy here even though we don’t have positive seasonal tendencies over the next few months.

The problem with playing these leveraged products is that it is basically a gamble. You are anticipating a short-term move, and in terms of the double leveraged Bull, you are hoping that is going to be positive. This is really a gambling tool, and not something he would like to play. Natural gas has been struggling at its 200-day moving average and is starting to curl lower. The builds in inventory levels over recent weeks have been higher than average. Going forward, we are looking at moderate temperatures in the US, so it doesn’t present that bullish backdrop for a near term rise.

(A Top Pick Aug 18/17. Up 10%.) This tends to have a seasonal run between Aug 27 to Nov 29, which is pretty much your US Thanksgiving. This is really a movement on the play of people and things ahead of the holiday season. Shipping activity has been very strong this year. Online retailers are doing great, and this is a beneficiary of that. This broke out of a level of resistance, came back and tested it as a level of support.

(A Top Pick Aug 18/17. 0%.) Basically, insurance on your portfolio during the summer months. The period of volatility is from the end of July through to the beginning of October, but volatility has failed to play out.
