  Gold jumped to $1,292.50 on Friday as the stock market briefly collapsed. Stocks recovered, and gold retreated. Precious metals will remain under pressure if stocks remain buoyant. Our primary analysis has called for a breakdown in gold. The ideal scenario expected a decline in gold below $1,262 (the October low) and subsequent bottom in […]

  Metals and Miners declined Friday. They could be setting up to break the October lows next week. Gold dropping below $1,262 will sustain a drop to $1,180 – $1,205 over the next several weeks. If established, prices should bottom in early to mid-December. The weekly gold chart illustrates a low-profile “V” shaped basing pattern. […]

  Gold is inching closer to the October low. It’s been 20-trading days since the previous low (October 6th), and I see two potential outcomes. Scenario 1- Gold formed a short-term top on Thursday, the 19th trading day. If so, prices should break the October low ($1,262) and proceed lower. Scenario 2- Gold is yet […]

  Gold and Silver performed well after their October 6th reversals. Gold finished the week above $1,300 and produced a weekly morning star pattern (bullish candle formation). Silver rallied 3.70% closing back above its 200-week MA. Last weeks rally was encouraging but not enough to confirm meaningful lows. Miners were weak relative to gold and […]

  I’d like to start the Weekend Newsletter with a big picture review of the gold and silver markets. It’s easy to get lost in the day-to-day fluctuations. When cycles stretch, I find taking a step back essential. Below is a snippet from the 6/17/2017 WEEKEND NEWSLETTER. -2017 BREAKOUT?- The multi-year correction is similar to […]

  It’s been one fake-out after another in the precious metal sector. Investors have been awaiting a major breakout in gold once prices climbed above $1,300. Friday’s rally reached $1,306.90 and promptly reversed, potentially creating a bull trap. Likewise with miners. GDX gapped higher in the morning only to end below the previous days low. […]

  Metals and Miners showed signs of topping after Friday’s employment report. Weekly dollar prices spiked down to the 200-week MA and reversed. If the dollar finally bottomed, we should see a 4-8 week recovery. Metals and Miners should soften as the dollar bounces. The dollar broke key technical support during the 7-Month decline. Consequently, […]

  Metals and Miners are bouncing as the dollar finishes what appears to be a small inverse head and shoulder bottoming pattern. If our analysis is correct, the rebound in precious metals should end next week. A daily close above 97.50 in the US Dollar will establish a breakout. A breakout in the dollar should […]

  Gold and Silver formed weekly swing highs, and prices should be working their way down into the 6-Month low. The bull market breakouts in 1986 and 2002 are similar to the current setup. If the correlation advances, we should see gold break above the long-term trendline later this year, confirming a bull market. Metals […]

  The Dollar sold off, and metals rallied after Friday’s weak employment numbers. The April and March data was revised lower, adding fuel to gold’s rebound. Oddly, the softer than expected economic data didn’t affect the odds for a June rate hike which remain at 94.6%. The steadfast underperformance in miners contradicts the persistent rally […]
