Francis Hunt: Gold – The Beginning of the Journey to $2905

Tom welcomes Francis Hunt, the founder of The Market Sniper, back to the show. Francis talks about why inflation has not been “cured” yet; it looks better only because it is being compared to previous numbers and basing effects. Year-on-year effects have decreased, but the consumer is still taking a hit. The declining dollar and prices is an indication that inflation will likely surge soon.

Francis then goes on to discuss the five trillion dollar fulcrum between the dollar and the Euro and how fiat will slosh into the Euro for a while, with a small amount flowing into gold. He also compares gold to a number of different currencies, with the US dollar particularly losing a lot of ground against commodity nations like Mexico.

Francis believes the Federal Reserve will raise interest rates further, resulting in a dollar spike. However, this would be a very volatile period and he advises traders to focus on gold, silver, and perhaps eventually the dollar. According to him, the Fed is creating greater crises by creating more volatility rather than stability.

Lastly, Francis explains the benefits of the HVF method and why he focuses primarily on leading indicators.

Francis is a trader, first and foremost. Unlike most educators in the trading space, Francis walks the walk and talks the talk, with 30 years of experience trading his personal capital on various markets and instruments. Through this passion for trading and his relentless study of markets and economic theory, he uses the Hunt Volatility Funnel trading methodology, a systemized approach, to answer the critical question: What is the next most profitable trade?

He believes the actual price of an asset is the most accurate reflection of all the factors that influence it. Practical technical analysis, the study of price action over time, is needed to formulate profitable trade ideas. Indeed, with all the market manipulation and high-frequency trading operations currently in play, technical analysis is all that can be relied upon when it comes to formulating future price trends. A trained eye can often spot such manipulative practices, as is the case with HVF traders. Therefore, the HVF methodology is based purely on technical analysis.

Francis is passionate about sharing his knowledge and understanding of markets by utilizing his HVF trading methodology. With entertaining anecdotes and the careful guidance of his students, he has already trained a large community of hundreds of traders and helped them transform from complete newbies to seasoned trading professionals.

He genuinely loves sharing his knowledge and strategies with others who are committed to finding freedom through trading. Plus, teaching strengthens his trading abilities while helping to build a vibrant community of successful traders.
