Valentine's Day Is Golden Stewart Thomson

- The world’s ultimate asset, gold bullion, continues to act superbly. That’s because fundamental, cyclical, and technical price drivers are very positive and are in play at the same time.

- Gold is poised to burst upside from a small bull wedge pattern, after recoiling from $1250 area resistance.
- Support sits at $1222, and testimony from Janet Yellen today along with key US retail data tomorrow could be the fundamental catalysts that launch gold’s next assault on that $1250 zone.
- Experienced technicians understand that their charts only work when fundamentals are creating the technical picture they see on their charts.
- In the case of the US dollar, most amateur technicians were very bullish on the dollar at the start of the year. They’ve essentially been crushed by “Trumpamentals”.
- The bottom line: The fundamentals of the Trump administration are changing institutional liquidity flows from a safe haven orientation to a US economy risk-on orientation.
- That’s very positive for gold, as a pick-up in Main Street (small business) business activity can be very inflationary. That’s because money velocity tends to accelerate quite dramatically when the pick-up gets underway.

- The dollar has broken down from a head and shoulders top pattern. A textbook rally back towards the neckline is now in play.
- Once that rally is completed, the dollar is likely to retest the recent lows, helping gold surge through the resistance at $1250.

- While $1250 is acting as short to intermediate term resistance, gold seems poised to move even higher in the big picture, likely to about $1300.
- Two key trend lines of resistance converge in the $1300 area, making that the next likely upside stop for gold above $1250.

- That’s another look at the weekly chart for gold. Both the RSI and Stochastics oscillators are crossing above the 50 area. That tends to happen when upside momentum is increasing.
- Also, note the highs in the $1306 - $1307 area. They are also likely to offer a profit booking opportunity for happy gold bugs soon!
- It turns out that I’m not alone in my view that gold can rally to $1300. Please click here now. Dominic Schnider is a heavyweight economist at monster bank UBS, and he sees gold making a beeline for $1300 too!
- Institutional money managers gain extra confidence when top economists recommend an asset class, and having Schnider “on side” with higher prices will certainly build that confidence.
- Please click here now. Double-click to enlarge. Silver bugs should also feel confident right now.
- That’s because silver is beginning to act with less volatility, and more like a slightly “jacked” version of gold! On rallies, silver is outperforming gold against the dollar, but not excessively so.
- Modest outperformance by silver against gold tends to occur during long term uptrends. Wild outperformance tends to occur when the precious metal sector is ending a big uptrend. The current action in the silver market is ideal for investors.
- As good as gold and silver bullion look, the stocks that mine these mighty metals look even better, as they typically do when economic growth and inflation come into synergistic play.
