MORNING NOTE 9:05 AM

Mon, 25 Feb 2019

  April gold slipped back to test the 200-period MA at $1327.30 this morning before bouncing. To support another attempt at $1350 prices would have to recapture the $1340 level convincingly. Slipping below $1323 would likely trigger another wave of selling. Same with silver. Below the 200-period on the 1-hour chart would support a breakdown. […]

WEEKEND NEWSLETTER 2/24/2019

Sun, 24 Feb 2019

  Over the last few years whenever gold approaches the $1360 level, the price action gets a little volatile…perhaps even violent. One day the short-term model supports an upside breakout – the next day a failure. It’s like two heavyweight boxers going at it. You know somebody’s going to take a nap, but you’re not […]

MORNING NOTE 8:50 AM

Fri, 22 Feb 2019

  Gold (April) is holding around $1328, and silver is staging near $15.80. There is no clear direction at the moment. Gold would have to retake $1330 decisively intraday to support a rally attempt. Declining below $1320 could trigger another wave of selling. Support for silver remains around $15.70, below that and prices could tumble. […]

QUICK NOTE 12:54 PM

Thu, 21 Feb 2019

  The Noon selloff below $1330 in April gold could be one of two things. 1) It could be the beginning of a sharp selloff later this week. 2) It’s a low-volume manipulation to shake out bulls before higher prices. Today’s close and Tomorrow Morning’s price action will tell us which scenario. If prices start […]

MINING UPDATE

Wed, 20 Feb 2019

  Several of the charts below are at critical junctures. They are all at or very near their potential breakout points. Within the next few days, I think prices will either top and turn back lower or break actively higher. These are just examples and not trade recommendations. If prices do break higher, I’ll consider […]

TUESDAY REPORT 2/19/2019

Tue, 19 Feb 2019

  Gold is approaching the long-term breakout zone near $1380. The next few trading days are critical. If prices are going to breakout, then gold should slice through the $1360-$1380 level with ease. Failing to breakout above $1380 will set the stage for a 2 to 4-week pullback into the next 6-month cycle low. If […]

CLOSING UPDATE 3:20 PM

Tue, 19 Feb 2019

  Unfortunately, I’ve been driving somewhat blind without the crucial COT data. The 35-day government shutdown delayed that aspect of our analysis. It would be nice to know where the commercials stand. Below is GDX as of about 3:20 PM.   -GDX- Miners are inching higher this afternoon. The last 15-30 minutes could get interesting. […]

WILL GOLD BREAKOUT ABOVE $1360?

Tue, 19 Feb 2019

  Precious Metal Investors (myself included) have been beaten down trying to trade these markets over the last 3-5 years. Are investors expecting a breakout? I bet there are fewer bulls now than during last April’s breakout attempt. If the masses aren’t expecting it – then, a breakout is possible.   Below are key levels […]

NEW TRADE ALERT AND UPDATE 10:22 AM

Tue, 19 Feb 2019

  -GDX- We have a large up-gap and prices are extending higher. Today’s close is what matters. -GDXJ- The lower gap level in juniors is $32.95. A close below that would recommend a top and subsequent sell signal. The bull flag targets approximately $35.60. -NUGT- I got in at $21.18. Exit on a daily close […]

MORNING UPDATE 9:12 AM

Tue, 19 Feb 2019

  Gold (April) is at fresh cycle highs, currently trading around $1335. The latter part of a cycle tends to get tricky, so caution is warranted. Gold is approaching major resistance between $1345- $1365. The current intermediate cycle bottomed last August (6-months ago). This cycle is beyond long in the tooth, and we have clear […]
