AFTERNOON GOLD UPDATE 2:05 PM

Tue, 25 Jun 2019

  The 1-hour gold chart is backtesting yesterday’s breakout above $1416. It looks like buyers stepped in near $1417 (currently $1425.90). Spot prices would have to slip below $1416 and then break support between $1400 – $1404 to recommend a potential reversal. The final near-term support level sits at $1385. A close below that would […]

MORNING UPDATE JUNE 20, 2019 (9:00 AM)

Thu, 20 Jun 2019

  Spot gold is currently trading around $1387. Last night’s spike to $1397.70 registered a new multi-year high. On the surface, it looks like gold prices are finally breaking out. But as we are well aware, the market manipulators and algo’s are masterful at painting the tape to get people on the wrong side of […]

IS GOLD BREAKING OUT OR ABOUT TO GO BUST?

Wed, 19 Jun 2019

  Spot gold prices are jumping as I write, currently at $1387 (prices touched $1397.70 shortly ago). Where prices open tomorrow (9:30 AM) will be enlightening. Maintaining $1387 – $1397 through Friday would support a significant breakout. But if prices slip overnight and open tomorrow below $1362, I’d suspect a top and pile on the […]

WEEKEND NEWSLETTER 5/26/2019

Sun, 26 May 2019

  The cleanest cycle I can find is the XAU junior mining index. Prices have formed turning points every 45-trading days since September. It arrives again May 31st and should time the next low. -XAU- The 45-day cycle in the XAU has been quite accurate timing the last four turning points. The next one is […]

MORNING UPDATE

Thu, 23 May 2019

  Metals and miners are bouncing as the stock market and oil selloff. Yesterday’s weakness in miners looked like the beginning of a pattern breakdown. Today, miners are higher, and anyone that bought the bearish breakdown is underwater. I remain focused on the last week of May for a probable cycle turning point. If stocks […]

MORNING GOLD UPDATE

Wed, 8 May 2019

  The markets feel like a coiled spring waiting for the next news event. The multi-week consolidation pattern suggests prices will either break higher or we will see a terminal 6-month decline to around $1240 and $1255 in late May. The next big market reaction will determine which way prices break. At the moment (10:31 […]

AFTERNOON UPDATE (POST FED BREAKDOWN?)

Wed, 1 May 2019

  The Fed left interest rates unchanged- no surprise. They noted inflation was below their 2% goal. That could open the door for a rate cut later this year. The dollar declined after the news. Gold turned positive momentarily, but prices may be reversing back lower.   The 4-hour gold chart remains in a descending […]

They announce Wednesday; no rate hike/cut is expected.   GDX UPDATE–>  Gold and miners may get a little tricky before Wednesday’s Fed announcement. Closing below $20.20 […]

QUICK PLATINUM UPDATE

Mon, 22 Apr 2019

  Platinum could be working on a breakout. Prices pulled back and successfully retested the $880 level. A rally above $930 would trigger a breakout above the medium-term trendline. The 200-day MA is beginning to turn up. Maintaining $880 is critical.

MORNING UPDATE 8:55 AM

Thu, 18 Apr 2019

  I’m still not convinced gold and silver are breaking down, just yet. The 4-hour gold chart is trying to reverse near the $1275 level. An intra-day bullish engulfing candle formed after gold struck $1273. The MACD (bottom indicator) is crossing over bullishly with a mildly positive divergence.   4-HOUR GOLD CHART: To support a […]
