Gold Stocks: A Leisurely Uptrend

Stewart Thomson

March 5, 2019

  1. The US stock market and bullion swooned yesterday, but the GDX gold stocks ETF was up!

  2. Gold stocks continue to perform impressively. Rallies look impulsive and corrections feel solid.

  3. Please click here now . Double-click to enlarge this daily gold chart. Gold has pulled back by about 30% after staging an enormous $170/ounce rally.

  4. In the scenario shown on this chart, gold could trade down to the 50% retracement area and support zone at $1250-$1260.

  5. From there, the rally would resume and gold should surge to my next $1400 target zone.

  6. The next US jobs report is on Friday, and that report is likely to help indicate whether gold range trades or pulls back to $1260 or so before that rally to $1400 takes place.

  7. Please click here now . Double click to enlarge. My alternative scenario has the current area as the correction low, and a range trade between $1275 and $1350 would occur over the next few months.

  8. Even though gold has corrected by about $70 from the $1350 zone, some individual miners have barely corrected at all. This is another sign of a very healthy market.

  9. Over the weekend, some readers told me they were worried that Goldman Sachs’ influential analysts may be about to lower their $1425 gold price target back down to $1050.

  10. With thanks to the forexLive team, I’d like to put that worry to rest. For the good news, please click here now . Not only are Goldman’s analysts still positive about gold…

  11. They are raising their target prices!

  12. The Western gold community can relax and enjoy this price pullback because there’s nothing to fear and everything is fundamentally solid.

  13. Please click here now . There’s an important double bottom pattern in play on this FXI-NYSE Chinese stock market chart.

  14. I’ll also note that it closed higher yesterday while the American Dow fell hard. Tariffs progress, government stimulus, and bigger weighting in international indexes should push the FXI higher.

  15. In turn, that’s going to put Chinese citizens in a positive mood and make them eager to buy more gold.

  16. Please click here now . Double-click to enlarge this superb SIL silver stocks ETF chart.

  17. All silver stock enthusiasts should feel confident and happy when looking at this chart. That’s because the slope of the current uptrend is solid and sustainable.

  18. Violent rallies like the one in 2016 are not sustainable. They cause a lot of investor price chasing as they peak and tend to end very badly.

  19. The fundamentals of this market are much different from 2016. That’s why key research analysts at firms like Goldman are so positive on gold. Where gold goes, silver tends to follow.

  20. Silver can outperform gold without leading it. What I mean by that statement is that gold can be the first metal to make a new intermediate trend high, but the percentage gains for that move are bigger for silver. When silver leads gold, the market tends to be more speculative and that’s not healthy.

  21. Gains that are sustained come from a market where gold leads the trending action, and that’s what is happening now.

  22. Please click here now . Monster bank BMO says that the combination of falling mine supply and rising jewellery demand will provide a “tailwind” for the price of gold, propelling it higher into 2021.

  23. Some bank analysts feel mine supply will decline, some see it static, and some see it rising, but only slightly, but almost all of them see demand bigger than supply. Government debt and de-dollarization are likely to become much more significant drivers of demand by 2021 than they are now. Both the fear trade and the love trade should be solid tailwinds for gold in the years ahead.

  24. Please click here now . Double-click to enlarge. GDX bounced nicely off the $21.50 support zone yesterday. More gyration is likely, but I think GDX will rise above $24 before gold moves over $1350. This market is solid. Gold stocks look like tourists in a bus climbing up a mountain of fiat at a leisurely pace. My suggestion: Enjoy the ride!
