MORNING GDX UPDATE

Mon, 22 Jun 2020

  -GDX- Miners gapped above the $34.00 price level and the short-term trendline. If today’s gap holds (prices stays above $34.00), we could have a short-term breakout. Reminder- A top in gold is possible this week if futures fail to breakout above $1800.

CLOSING UPDATE

Wed, 25 Mar 2020

-GDX- Miners are at critical resistance. Prices closed above the gap and above the $25.50 level, but below the 50-day EMA. If this is a convincing rebound, as I suspect, then prices should turn lower by tomorrow or Friday. A powerful surge above the 200-day would imply a breakout, and I’d consider a long position. […]

BE CAREFUL PICKING A BOTTOM

Tue, 17 Mar 2020

  The urge to jump into gold and miners may be overwhelming for some investors. I suggest caution as the first wave of bottom pickers usually regret their decision.  I’ve been doing this for a while, and I’ve seen massive swings in precious metals. Through experience, I learned to be patient and to wait for […]

MORNING CRASH UPDATE 10:55 AM

Mon, 16 Mar 2020

  Several miners and silver companies are rallying or near positive territory despite sharply lower precious metals (paper price). Premiums on bullion have jumped. I want to see if the morning boost is just a gap fill or real demand. It was a long scary weekend for people. So, if it’s just retail traders freaking […]

FED CUT RATES OVER THE WEEKEND

Sun, 15 Mar 2020

  In an unexpected move ON Sunday, the Federal Reserve announced it is dropping its benchmark interest rate to zero (was 1.00%) and will be launching a new round of quantitative easing. The QE program will provide $500-billion worth of asset purchases, including Treasury’s and mortgage-backed securities. It’s unclear what this will do to the […]

AFTERNOON UPDATE 1:05 PM

Fri, 28 Feb 2020

  Trying to make sense of these markets is impossible. If I told you U.S. stocks would crash 14% in one week – how high do you suspect gold would jump? $50…$100…$150? I would guess at least $100 but probably more. Nope – Gold prices are down over $50.00 on Friday. All week I’ve been […]

Gold Forecast – Preparing For An Autumn Low

Fri, 13 Sep 2019

  Gold futures are trying to hold support near $1500 ahead of next weeks Fed announcement. Our intermediate forecast supports a pullback into October/November. A backtest of the $1380 breakout area could become one of the last great buying opportunities.  Sometimes one chart can some up years of commentary. For an eagles-eye view, I prefer the […]

GOLD UPDATE AUGUST 13, 2019

Tue, 13 Aug 2019

  Gold probed the upper limit of the resistance band between $1525 – $1550 reaching $1546.10 this morning before falling apart. Futures collapsed to $1488.90 by 10 AM and prices are bouncing. Yesterday’s breakout above $1525, followed by today’s dynamic reversal supports an interim top. Silver reached $17.49 before collapsing to $16.51 intraday. The short-term […]

AFTERNOON UPDATE 3:30 PM

Mon, 12 Aug 2019

  Gold futures broke higher from the consolidation pattern reaching $1531.50 intraday (currently $1523). Gold miners (GDX) are down 1.11% as I write and making fresh intraday lows. The non-confirmation is a warning. Gold would have to extend above $1535 to maintain today’s short-term breakout. Slipping back below $1510 would signal a potential top.
