Rocket Time For Gold

Stewart Thomson

Oct 16, 2018

  1. With a technical double bottom pattern as a launchpad, gold continues to move solidly higher while global stock markets get smashed. What comes next for these key markets and what are the main factors at play?

  2. Please click here now. Double click to enlarge this daily gold chart.

  3. What began innocently as a bullish non-confirmation between gold-USD and yuan-USD is now a powerful rally fuelled by positive action in the love trade, the inflation trade, and the fear trade… all at the same same!

  4. Institutional money managers are becoming concerned that the US government’s obscene debt growth is violently accelerating as the Fed’s quantitative easing and rate normalization programs are already putting intense pressure on bond market yields.

  5. In turn, that puts intense pressure on the stock market… a market that is already at a very late point in the business cycle. Corporate earnings growth has peaked and inflationary pressures are rising.

  6. Please click here now. Hedge funds are feeling pressure to liquidate their short positions on the COMEX and the “smart money” commercial traders went heavily net long gold just before the US stock market got smashed.

  7. Please click here now. Like most governments around the world, the US government has almost always had a maniacal obsession with spending money that it doesn’t have. That money is either borrowed or extorted via “income taxation” from over burdened citizens. It’s quickly spent on supposedly grand “people helper” programs.

  8. This disgusting obsession is now putting enormous pressure on yields in the bond market.

  9. This rancid “cake” is being iced by disturbing events taking place in Saudi Arabia. Institutional investors are becoming nervous that Trump may try to have key members of the House of Saud arrested for murder in the Khashoggi incident, and the House of Saud would respond by cutting oil production.

  10. The US head of the treasury brags that he doesn’t care if the Chinese government sells US government bonds. He doesn’t care because the treasury doesn’t buy those bonds as an investor.

  11. It issues them to keep government spending wheels greased.

  12. Please click here now. Double-click to enlarge. The long-term bond bull market is dying, and a long consolidation for gold is ending. Gold’s mighty bull run is ready to resume… and it is likely to continue for decades.

  13. Please click here now. Double-click to enlarge. Gold is performing exactly as I projected it would. An annoying decline from $1320 to $1180 was required to give ultimate symmetry to the massive inverse head and shoulders bull continuation pattern shown here.

  14. That decline has taken place and, as projected, gold has begun a fundamentally-fuelled ascent towards the neckline zone of the pattern in the $1400 area.

  15. Please click here now. My short-term trading service at is flashing buy signals for the US stock market this morning. It has captured the bulk of this “barn burner” gold stocks rally, via the leveraged NUGT ETF and call options on key gold stocks. While the gold and related positions look fabulous, this could be just a dead cat bounce for the stock market. Here’s why:

  16. Institutional money managers have projected strong fourth quarter GDP and corporate earnings growth, but they are becoming horrified by the pressure that government debt growth and quantitative easing is putting on yields.

  17. That spike in yields is ruining their stock market buybacks “free money stock market ride”. For the past nine years, stock buyback programs funded with low interest loans have been the main engine of US stock price appreciation. The party is over!

  18. Please click here now. Legendary investors like Carl Icahn know the long and painful role that import taxes have played in major stock market crashes, but some amateur investors don’t believe these taxes are negative for markets.

  19. It doesn’t matter what these amateur investors believe. What matters are the beliefs of institutional investors, and they are clearly very uncomfortable with the import tariffs situation. The bottom line: China’s stock market has already crashed and now America’s is on the rocks.

  20. There’s also a new reason for institutional investors to be horrified about global bond yields and stock markets; Italy’s “populist” government is wasting little time in ramping up its spending programs to unprecedented and dangerous levels.

  21. It is clearly following in the American government’s interesting footsteps… towards a global bond market inferno and a major bull run for gold!

  22. Please click here now. Gold is surrounded by green lights and tails winds. I predicted gold would stay soft until Indian dealers ramped up their buying in late September/early October. That’s exactly what transpired. Next comes China! Chinese dealer buying for New Year celebrations will soon begin, and with Chinese stock markets and currency smashed by government tariff taxes, the citizens are focused on gold.

  23. Please click here now. Double-click to enlarge. With outrageously positive COT reports for gold, enormous love trade buying, global stock and bond markets mayhem, and governments pushing the spend-more-money button maniacally, is it any wonder that GDX looks as fabulous as it does right now on this chart?

  24. I’ve outlined the entire $23-$18 zone as a spectacular buy zone for all investors. I’ll boldly predict that as time passes it may come to be recognized as the greatest buy zone in the history of markets.
