Profiting from Gold

Profiting from Gold

New Insight leads to a better way of trading gold.

What has got banks and investors focused on gold? Kenton-Dau LLC, a company based in Christchurch New Zealand has discovered naturally occurring periods of rise and fall in the gold market. This makes is possible to generate consistent on-going revenue from gold simply by ‘harvesting’ these naturally occurring periods of rise and fall. Already two Australian banks are in discussion with the company to trade the insight.

“The periods of rise and fall occur in a four day pattern that repeats itself endlessly,” says Branton Kenton-Dau, the company’s Principal. “No other information is needed to secure on-going revenue.”

Data from FXCM since 2009 indicates that trading these periods of natural rise and fall would have returned 13% per annum including transaction costs. The figures are unleveraged and without the gains reinvested. The maximum drawdown over the four and a half years would have been less than -7%.
“Remember,” says Kenton-Dau, “this was the period when the price of gold did a huge shift in 2011 from a raging bull market to a plummeting bear market. Did this change the recurring four day pattern of rise and fall? Not in the slightest. The rise and fall periods went right on performing.”

“Last week alone the periods of rise and fall generated 1% without once having to look at what the market was doing,” comments Kenton-Dau. “That is what we mean when we suggest that investors can now ‘harvest’ revenue from the market rather than carry the risk of betting on direction.”
