Janet & Gold: Does History Rhyme? Stewart Thomson
Sep 13, 2016
- Good things come to those who wait, because patience is a virtue.
- Over the past few days, various Fed presidents and governors have made both hawkish and dovish statements. The US stock market and gold stocks have reacted violently to these statements.
- It’s important for all gold stock investors to understand that anything can happen at next week’s critically important FOMC and BOJ meetings.
- Ahead of those meetings, it’s clearly a time for patience. Once the meetings have been completed, institutional investors will begin to apply large amounts of liquidity to the markets, and a new intermediate trend will be underway.
- On that note, please click here now. Double-click to enlarge this daily bars gold chart. I annotated this chart a week ago, predicting a rally to the trend line in the $1355 area, and then a pullback from there to $1325.
- To view what actually occurred, please click here now. Double-click to enlarge. Gold followed the exact trajectory I predicted.
- All that’s left now is for gold to stage an upside breakout from the drifting rectangle pattern, and begin the rally to my $1392 and $1432 target zones.
- That is unlikely to occur until next week’s FOMC/BOJ meetings are completed.
- Please click here now. Double-click to enlarge this monthly bars gold chart. Many technicians have noticed this bull wedge pattern, and they are predicting a kind of parabolic move to begin after an upside breakout.
- While that sounds wonderful, these technicians may be quite disappointed by what actually transpires if there is a “breakout”. Please click here now. Double-click to enlarge this quarterly bars chart.
- Upon close inspection, it’s clear that gold could rise to $1432 over the next quarter, and still be contained within the bull wedge pattern on the quarterly bars chart.
- Also, there is massive overhead resistance in the $1492 - $1523 price zone. Gold is extremely well supported by value-oriented institutional money managers, but most of the price appreciation is coming from the low relative cost of carry that gold is showcasing against major fiat currencies.
- It would take a huge fundamental catalyst like a US stock market crash, bond market crash, or a geopolitical black swan event to create a dramatic acceleration in gold’s current rate of price appreciation.
- On that note, please click here now. Double-click to enlarge this daily bars T-bond chart. Despite the cheerleading speeches given by some Fed speakers, there is some clear technical damage occurring in the bond market.
- Whether that damage is foreshadowing something bigger or not will only be made clear by what happens at the FOMC/BOJ events.
- Please click here now. Double-click to enlarge. This eight hour bars chart of the Dow presents a similar picture; the US stock market staged a partial recovery from Friday’s hammering, but if Janet Yellen actually does raise rates next week, the stock market may begin a horrific decline.
- A rate hike would only increase the relative cost of holding gold compared to fiat slightly, but it could create massive gold and yen safe haven buying if the US stock and bond markets crashed. Going into next week’s critically important central bank meetings, it’s win-win for gold.
- Most mainstream economists believe the odds of a September rate hike are about 30% or lower. Clearly, a shock announcement from Janet has the potential to create massive stock and bond market carnage.
- Many investors are perplexed because September is historically a very good month for gold price appreciation. That’s true, but the February to June period is seasonally week, and gold did well this year.
- Also, the September strength is caused by Indian festival buying, and after two years of drought the farmers there have substantial debts. So, Indian gold demand is muted.
- Please click here now. Double-click to enlarge this GDX daily bars chart. The $27.50 - $29 area can be lightly sold, and the $25 - $26 area can be lightly bought until the central bank meetings are finished.
- If there is no rate hike next week, GDX should challenge the $32 area highs, and lead bullion higher.
- If there is a rate hike, GDX and most gold stocks will likely spike lower while bullion soars higher, in a scenario similar to what happened when Janet hiked in December of 2015.
- The good news is that after a very brief decline when Janet hiked last year, gold stocks staged one of the biggest rallies in many years. If she hikes next week, I expect history to rhyme!
