January 9, 2020 | How on Earth Can Gold Decline During the U.S. – Iran Crisis?

So, did U.S. and Iran just become best friends? Gold’s huge reversal and a decline of about $50 in 24 hours might certainly suggest so to those, who choose to follow the news instead of estimating market’s moves using more reliable tools. Of course, the two countries are not on friendly terms at this time. […]

December 24, 2019 | Today’s Gold Upswing and Lessons from Gold Tops

What a classic day Friday was! Gold moved a bit lower, miners moved significantly lower, and silver rallied. Truly classic and outstanding performance if one enjoys seeing topping patterns that are playing out according to their usual and likely characteristics. And Monday’s early session seems to be an encore. Let’s start with the examination of […]

December 22, 2019 | Gold in Indian Rupees, the USD and the Many Non-USD Currencies

We started yesterday’s analysis with the investigation of the Euro Index and gold price in this European currency. Today, we’ll take a moment to analyze the gold market from the Indian point of view. Gold has a special place in the Indian history and culture, India is the second biggest “consumer” of gold (right after […]

December 19, 2019 | Gold, USD and the Euro: the Signs Ahead

Brexit has become very likely due to result of the UK vote. But so what (gold- and currency-wise)? The uncertainty dropped significantly, and markets were able to sign a breath of relief (bearish for gold), but on the other hand Brexit itself increases the geopolitical turmoil (bullish for gold). Gold didn’t react decisively in the […]

December 16, 2019 | The Cue from USDX That Gold Didn’t Take

In Friday’s Alert, we warned that gold and USD movement in the next few days might be a bit chaotic due to the geopolitical news that are currently hitting the markets. The new steps in the Brexit saga and the U.S.-China agreement continue to support intraday volatility. It’s relatively normal and once the dust settles […]

December 11, 2019 | Silver Miners Pinpoint the Precious Metals’ Outlook

Very little happened in the precious metals market both yesterday and in today’s pre-market trading – at least so far. We will take this opportunity to discuss something that we haven’t done in a while – silver stocks. To be clear, we’re not going to discuss the silver mining stock selection, as that’s something our […]

December 10, 2019 | Metals’ Reversals, Lower Prices and Our Precious Profits

Gold, silver, and mining stocks reversed practically exactly at their double triangle reversal point and the short positions that we opened along with taking profits off the table from the previous long positions, became profitable almost instantly. There’s quite a decline to catch here, and it seems that only a small part thereof had already […]

December 5, 2019 | Is a Local Top in Gold At Hand?

In yesterday’s analysis on gold price in December 2019, we wrote that while the outlook for the yellow metal for the following months was bearish, it was bullish for the short term. And indeed – gold, silver, and mining stocks rallied. In fact, the rally continues in today’s pre-market session. As it’s happening even without […]

December 3, 2019 | How Far Will Gold Reach Before the Upcoming Reversal?

Just when most traders thought that the previous week is going to end in the red for gold, something exceptional happened. The USD Index reversed after rallying, and gold rallied sharply in response. In the end, gold ended the week in the green by forming a clear weekly reversal. That was actually the second weekly […]

November 28, 2019 | Another Precious Metals’ Reversal Coming Right Up!

Gold reversed yesterday, and so did the rest of the precious metal sector. Mining stocks and – what’s important – silver showed strength relative to gold and rallied even more than gold. Silver’s strength is important because it indicates that we are already in the second half of the short-term upswing in the precious metals […]

November 26, 2019 | The Prospects of Gold’s Next Upswing

The USD Index rallied on Friday, and gold responded with an intraday decline – that’s normal. What’s not necessarily normal is the size of the daily change in gold compared to the size of USD’s rally. USD Index Bounces Higher Namely, gold futures ended Friday’s session exactly where they had closed on Thursday. There was […]

November 18, 2019 | Zig-Zagging Gold Is Not Necessarily Bearish Gold

In Friday’s article, we wrote that what comes up must co..rrect and gold has indeed shown to be in a corrective mode. We also wrote that the yellow metal was unlikely to break below the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement based on the previous upswing and while gold moved to this level earlier today, it didn’t break […]

November 14, 2019 | The Case for a Silver Rally

Yes, you read that right. Despite all the bearish developments that we described in the previous analyses, and despite myriads of bearish factors that remain in place for the following months, it seems that the white metal is about to rally. Gold, and mining stocks could move higher as well, and we’ll move to that […]

November 12, 2019 | Gold Breaks Down, Waving Good-bye to the 2019 Rally

Our summary of the current situation in the precious metals is not going to differ much from what we wrote yesterday, and the reason is simple. The decline in gold, silver, and miners is developing just as we’ve been expecting it to. Most importantly, gold has just confirmed its breakdown and everything that we reported […]

November 7, 2019 | Wait… Was That a Bullish Silver Reversal?

Silver plunged on Tuesday, just as it was likely to after the triple reversal that we’ve been writing about, and it was declining strongly during Wednesday’s pre-market trading. And then it all changed. Silver soared before the U.S. markets opened and the white metal ended the session in the green. We definitely saw a silver […]

November 4, 2019 | Profiting on Gold Tops, Reversals and Turnarounds

Gold price action in November 2019 is likely to take most investors by surprise. There are two ways in which gold is likely to move in the first part of the month. It could slide right away based on the triple triangle-vertex-based reversal patterns that we see in gold, silver, and gold miners. However, there’s […]

October 30, 2019 | Gold Juniors Decline While Senior Miners Rally – What Gives?

Do you know what mining companies did yesterday? They verified a major breakdown, confirming the extremely bearish outlook for the following months. What? The miners rallied? Oh, you mean the senior mining stocks (HUI, GDX…) – then yes, they moved a bit higher. But the junior miners (Toronto Stock Exchange Venture Index) just declined after […]

October 28, 2019 | Powerful Lessons of Silver’s Daily Reversals

Friday’s session was exceptional for several reasons and the most profound ones are gold’s and silver’s sizable intraday rally, and the subsequent slide. The reversals that both metals created are practically screaming signs pointing to what’s next. The way mining stocks behaved, and how gold closed relative to its previous tops also have important implications, […]

October 23, 2019 | Why It Makes Sense to Pay Attention to Platinum Now

Would you like to invest in platinum? “What? Why platinum?” – you’d probably ask back. And correctly so, this shiny metal has been declining in the previous years and only recently did it show some decent strength. And this may not sound important at all if you’re only considering investing in gold, silver, or mining […]

October 17, 2019 | Making Sense of the Dilly-Dallying Days in Crude Oil

Crude oil seesaw trading goes on, as yesterday’s upswing gave way to a lower open earlier today. Given the declining USD, couldn’t black gold have acted just a little bit stronger? Let’s take a look what it means for our open position – time to head for the exits, or brace ourselves for a more […]

October 14, 2019 | The Many Aligning Signals in Gold

Precious metals moved strongly on Friday, and did so on significant volume. The reversals we have seen on Thursday got resolved with a heavy thud. Let’s dive into the many charts and perspectives and explore how well they support the upcoming move across the sector. Let’s start this week with a bigger update on multiple […]

October 9, 2019 | The Allure of Upswings in Miners and Silver

The entire precious metals sector rallied yesterday, but the upswing was particularly visible in case of silver and (especially) mining stocks. Both: silver, and miners moved to new October highs. Silver’s breakout was tiny, but miners rallied relatively significantly and that’s the part of the current long trade that’s particularly profitable. Of course, these profits […]

October 2, 2019 | When Will the Turnaround in Gold Likely Come? Implications for Silver?

In yesterday’s analysis, we emphasized that even though a big decline in gold is already underway, it’s likely that it won’t be a straight move down and there will be periodic corrections. Moreover, we provided price targets from which the bounce could start. Based on the circumstances, it might even be a tradable move. In […]

September 30, 2019 | Silver Pierced Its September Lows Despite the USD Staying Put

In the previous weeks we’ve been featuring multiple factors that are likely to usher in a sizable gold, silver and mining stocks’ moves. Has the very recent downswing been the opening act? The USD Index closed flat on Friday, yet the metals declined across the board. The gold to silver ratio presents us with a […]

September 27, 2019 | Gold, Sliding Silver and Declining Interest Rates

As the Fed turned dovish this year, not only did the short-term interest rates move down – the long- and very-long-term ones also declined. Why would this be the case? After all, the long-term rates are set by market forces, not through Fed’s direct decision… Did gold and silver act on that signal by declining […]
