Good morning folks, and welcome to the Rude Awakening!

Recording super early this morning, let’s dive into what we’ve seen in today’s premarket…

Markets Trying to Push Higher

S&P Futures are on FIRE this morning. The NASDAQ is also shooting up.

This demonstrates for us that the markets are trying to regain some of the lost ground we’ve seen throughout the past several weeks.

Looking at a day chart throughout 2020, we can see a lot of vacillation and confusion in our marketplace.

To be clear, we are still in a downward trending market. We have been since the highs from the beginning of September started to sell off.

But, the last three trading sessions have been green days, as we’ve seen a market trying to fight back.

We are now pushing up on that 50day MA. This could prove to be some level of resistance.

But, what’s important right now is the market is trying to rebound.

New Inflection Point

As we see the market pushing up again, this marks a new inflection point.

Like I always say, inflection points are massively important for us as traders.

But, like we keep coming back to, the level that analysts are looking at right now is that same $3,200 level we’ve been talking about.


This level has proven to morph from an area of support and resistance, back and forth throughout the past year.

So, for now, we just have to wait and see if it will prove to become a significant level for the near-term in today’s market.

One of the sectors that’s been very interesting is commodities.

In particular, gold.

Gold in 2020

Looking at the gold ETF GLD, in the past couple months, we are seeing a selloff.

There was a big gap down after new highs above $190 back in August. Now, GLD is trading around $175.

This is the sector we’ll focus on today. So, the question is, where is gold going next?

There are some very cool things at play with this commodity’s stock…

And we can figure out how to profit on it regardless of what the overall market is doing.

Although the overall market is showing clear bearish signs, the gold market is a different story.

Trading Gold in Today’s Market

Despite short-term selloffs, gold is in a clear bull market.

You can see from this chart that the past four times gold’s pushed up in price, there have been these selloffs. But looking at the overarching trend, it’s moving upwards.


This is how bull markets work.

So, to see today’s bullish trade idea on SPDR Gold Shares (GLD) with a very high probability of success — meaning, we can make money despite any further selloff — click here to sign up for the free beta test of the Rude Awakening Pro.
