Currently, the most active cycles are 363, 242, and 89 days. The combination of this trio is plotted below, and note that the cycle composite coincided with the August high. The cycle bottoms at the end of September, projecting a rally in October and another decline into December.

It is our vision that prices will continue to trend lower in the near future as this cycle plays out. We believe that this will create opportunities for savvy investors to pick up bargains in the market.

It looks like the bearish scenario is playing out as expected, with prices falling back below the key 111-112 level. This is a bearish development and could mean further downside in the days and weeks ahead.
