Did You Capitalize On Our SLV Call (+17%)?
On May 7, as the iShares Silver Trust (SLV) broke out of a moving average cluster just above 14.00, Mike Paulenoff noted that "a big directional move [was] approaching" which would initially challenge the 14.80 prior rally high and beyond that 15.65/85.
Mike's annotated SLV chart (below) shows more about what he liked technically, while fundamentally he has outlined 3 backstory reasons to justify sustained strength in silver as he's continued to follow it closely in his Live Trading Room:
1) Growing perceptions that inflation will be in our future largely because of the gargantuan expansion of monetary policy and fiscal spending,
2) Belief that the US and global economies will recover sharply by the end of the year, exerting upward pressure on demand, and
3) The view by "professional" traders that silver is way too cheap in relation to the price of gold. Add to that the prospect of a lower US Dollar, and you get a combination of forces contributing to silver's rally.
By the close of this past week, SLV was at $16.66, up 17% from Mike's May 7 post.

More Top Calls From Mike
Back on June 17th, this is what we discussed about the TLT (20+ Year T-bond ETF)when it was trading at 112.53:
The TLT put in a big upside reversal day yesterday (6/16/22) from 107.80 to 111.72, closing RIGHT AT the High of 111.72, leaving behind a Bullish Engulfing Candle on my Daily Chart (not shown here). The last time TLT traded at 107.
On Friday June 17, Mike Paulenoff posted an alert to MPTrader members about an emerging setup in AMZN:
AMZN is one name that pops out at me that should benefit from an initial and sustained correction in traditional energy and transportation costs. AMZN needs to climb above and sustain 110 for my work to generate a more confident technical signal, otherwise, I cannot rule out another loop down that tests and breaks key May-June support at 101.26 to 101.
Last Wednesday, prior to the official FOMC rate hike of 75 bps, Mike Paulenoffwarned MPTrader members about the likelihood of additional weakness in the beleaguered home builders, writing about the ITB (iShares US Home Construction ETF):
In that, neither my pattern work nor my intermediate-term Momentum gauges offer much technical confidence that ITB will be able to carve out a meaningful corrective basing area in and around 53.
Back on May 13, amid a thrust in the price of Crude Oil from $95/bbl to $112/bbl, Mike Paulenoff alerted MPTrader members to an actionable technical setup in energy producer PSX (Phillips 66), writing:
My work has been extremely friendly since the beginning of May, looking for PSX to break out of its 11-month corrective accumulation pattern that will trigger a thrust towards a potential target zone of 110-115.
On Thursday May 19, in the midst of some serious weakness and carnage in the retail sector that had equity market-watchers doubting the resiliency of the almighty US consumer, Mike Paulenoff turned MPTrader members attention to PARA (Paramount Global), writing:
For the past 5 months, we could make the technical argument that PARA has carved out an accumulation-base formation that attracts buyers every time the stock dips beneath 29.00. We can also make the case that every time the stock climbs above 36.
