Monthly Digest | January 2021

Analyzing the key trends, events, and factors that drove market behavior in January 2021. Let's explore the pages of January 2021's trading chronicle together, unlocking the secrets that unfolded in the realm of stocks and investments.

January 01 2021

Puru is a growth investor who also uses a trend system to hedge. I’ve always enjoyed what this guy does. Over 5 years he has put together an average around 100%

January 02 2021

Bitcoin is very close to its primary target of 36k which is where the breakout from the 20k zone would target based on TA. Once again trailing stop. Enjoy the ride.

January 03 2021

BTC system 1... yes still long

BTC system 1... yes still long

BTC weekly

BTC something we talk about here a lot... YOU HAVE NO PREDICTIVE ABILITY so stop trying to pick tops and bottoms as a position/swing trader

Lumber- no one ever says... I need more lumber even though it outperformed BTC this year. Not sexy enough lol

Close to my stop on lumber. I rolled in to the march contract.

Copper still in bullish trend. Also band squeeze that looks like its ready to move higher.

oil still long, holding on to a bullish trend

The curve gives warnings similar to copper, oil and lumber

XBI/Dow healthy risk on

 KRE still outperforming healthy risk on market

some of our miner picks from the begining of this month

Silver the move looks early, not late

Silver juniors the strongers one in the pack

Ended last week on a green gold bar. bullish

silver to gold ratio bullish

better picture

HOLDING GOLD for the first 10 days of January has a 74.6% accuracy over 20 years so look for bullish set ups in gold, silver and miners

January 04 2021

Something to keep in mind about crypto. The flood in to eth should continue as they roll out eth futures.

Gold holding above the old highs

OIH with another buy signal

January 05 2021


That’s a trend - Corn

2020 Migration Trends UHaul Ranks 50 States By Migration Growth - Uhaul is still on my long term hold list

Wheat new highs.


Uranium energy and EEM on top

OMG things will be impacted... no shit. This guy has been saying this for 6 months now. I don’t have a problem with John at all but this is an example of what I’m talking about. Miss an entire rally in commodities because... something might happen. No one knows when

Everyday “be careful”. Be careful trading against the trend

All trends stop. Anything can happen. But we try to catch the meat of these moves. So as a trend trader we want to stay bullish until there is no reason to be bullish. Once again we are happy to give back 10-20% after 50-300% moves.

January 06 2021



I have had a terrible time calling natty the last couple months. After nailing a major move its given me a ton of fake outs. But this looks like a solid set up. 3 pushes to a low. OBV and williams divergence. On the next pull back to higher low it is most likely a buy.

Similar to when we saw a premium in gold we are seeing a similar set up in lumber right now. This usually leads to more upside

Commodities. They trend - Corn

Media “if it’s a blue wave buy tech” 😱 they are always on point. 10 for 10!

Russell. It was priced in... they said. Ok my saltiness level is at an all time high. I’m going to stop hating lol

It’s nice to not be involved in the news anymore... price actions still bullish... crazy

January 07 2021

The non-aggression principle (also called the non-aggression axiom, or the anti-coercion or zero aggression principle or non-initiation of force) is an ethical stance which asserts that "aggression" is inherently illegitimate. "Aggression" is defined as the "initiation" of physical force against persons or property, the threat of such, or fraud upon persons or their property. In contrast to pacifism, the non-aggression principle does not preclude violent self-defense. The principle is a deontological (or rule-based) ethical stance.

January 08 2021

Major hit to the metals this morning due to rising yields and falling bond prices on the long end. Inflation rates need to outperform yields. Which will happen.

Shaky but healthy

Market still in superior return mode according to the T model

Nasty sell off in the metals today as real yields are putting pressure on the gold price.

This has been interesting when it comes to natural gas prices. Asia is surging on cold winter and a supply crunch. This can roll over here as well

Cool bit of news today - John Netto and I are going to speak exclusively for this group at some point coming up.

Silver and gold should move up now. Leveraged selling is over.

Update on the silver trade - Look at that bounce off of that high volume support bar

Interesting reaction off of the 200 day/40 week MA. I refer to the 200 day retracements as algo city for a reason

BTC update

More new highs today. Breadth is insane

January 09 2021

Advance decline volume stock only

Equal weight SPX on bottom. SPX on top. Equal weight still stronger than SPX. Bullish

Broad AD

PMO buy all gave a buy signal this week.

oil volatility

Junk bonds to gov 20-30s

oil leading indicator Still very bullish


The oil break out we were looking for happened. Note the volume bar
