September 11, 2019 | Gold at Support: the Upcoming Move

Gold and gold stocks declined yesterday, but silver hesitated. Does this, plus the fact that gold is up so far in today’s pre-market trading indicate a short-term bottom? Or is the picture even on the verge of turning bullish? Not at all. Let’s take a look at the chart below for details. Yesterday in the […]

September 9, 2019 | Do Two Weekly Declines Make a Case for Lower Gold Ahead?

It’s nothing to worry about, gold and silver will rally back up shortly – most analysts say right now and also said in the mid-90s. …Only except that they won’t – at least not for several months. Is anything different now than it was during other gold corrections in the past couple of months? Yes. […]

July 31, 2019 | Two Views of Yesterday’s Gold Strength

The great day of the Fed interest rates decision and forward guidance has arrived. There hasn’t been much pre-positioning volatility in the precious markets so far. With the exception of gold perhaps, you might say. Let’s dive in and assess whether a technically important gold move has happened yesterday, or not. Examination of the other […]

July 29, 2019 | Those Key Behind-the-Scenes Stories That Silver Tells

Friday’s session didn’t bring much of easily noticeable action in the precious metals. While the day-to-day picture remains calm, the mining stocks’ move has brought us direct short-term implications. We’ll examine the lessons both the gold-to-silver ratio and silver are sending us. Let’s get into silver’s message. There is much more to the performance of […]

July 25, 2019 | Can Silver Lead PMs Higher Still?

t’s not true that yesterday’s session in precious metals was uneventful. While gold and mining stocks didn’t do much, silver moved a bit above its previous high, closing at a fresh 2019 high. Sounds pretty remarkable, doesn’t it? In today’s analysis, we’ll put silver’s breakout into proper perspective and examine if the white metal has […]

July 17, 2019 | Truly Epic Silver Signals: Vying for Your Attention

If we had to pick one day, or one situation when a single market provided most indications during a single day, it would be yesterday’s performance of silver. There’s not much to say about yesterday’s session while looking at gold and mining stocks – they both moved a bit lower. But things are very much […]

July 15, 2019 | The Battle Is On: Gold Price vs. the HUI Miners

Gold stocks just ended the week at a new 2019 high, while gold confirmed its breakdown in the most important – weekly closing price – terms. Who should one believe? Are gold miners leading gold higher just like it was the case many times, or “this time is different”? Let’s delve into both the gold […]

July 10, 2019 | How Can Gold Break Down And Finish Higher At the Same Time?

Sounds contradictory, but is perfectly true nonetheless. Just like you need to go faster than the car in front of you to be able to overtake it, the price sometimes has to rise faster than a steeply-sloping support level does so that it doesn’t break down. Think about keeping your head above water when swimming. […]

June 26, 2019 | Gold Clearly Reverses at Consolidation’s Upper Border

Quite a few journalists wrote about gold’s breakout in the previous days even though gold made an attempt to break above the key resistance – the mid-2013 high – only today (and it failed). At the same time, when the gold to silver ratio was breaking out in a clear way, many journalists ignored that […]

June 24, 2019 | Gold Above $1,400 is Only the Tip of the Signal Iceberg

Gold broke above the $1,400 level last week and the volume that corresponded the move was exceptional. The story doesn’t end there. The volume for silver was big and the volume for silver stocks was truly epic. Something very, very, very important is happening right now. You knew a part of the story for weeks […]

June 19, 2019 | Are Gold and GDX Reversing, or Pushing to New Highs?

Gold and mining stocks just closed at a new yearly high. Silver is not even close to reaching such levels, and gold is already back below where it was trading 24 hours ago. Can these breakouts be trusted? Do they have a lasting power? To answer that, we better remember something important first. This changes […]

June 17, 2019 | Gold and Silver Reversals – Impossible Not to Notice

What a remarkable day Friday has been! Going into the U.S. session open, we have seen gold challenging its early-June highs. The barrage of geopolitical news has been deafening and gold had literally nowhere to go but up. But something “unexpected” yet totally predictable happened to those who have jumped on the gold bandwagon. Friday’s […]

June 12, 2019 | Rallying Gold? Still a Great Opportunity!

Quickly after the volatile plunge, gold reversed and it’s moving higher in today’s pre-market trading. The $64,000 question is whether this is a correction within the decline, or did the huge rally just resume after a pullback. Which proposition will reassert itself? In short, the former is much more likely. The decline seems to have […]

June 5, 2019 | Gold and HUI Short-term Strength Is a Strong Call to Action

One surprising news was followed by another surprising news. First, Trump told the world about his plan to keep increasing tariffs on Mexico, defying his own party. Then, no hint of relief had come regarding the China trade dispute. Finally, we have got the Fed discussing potential interest rate cuts. Investors have aggressively increased their […]

May 30, 2019 | Better Than Buy-and-Hold Gold Investment

Have you thought about simply buying gold and forgetting about it for the next 10-15 years? We certainly did. And it seems not bad. But is “not bad” enough? Better Than Buy-and-Hold Gold Investment We were asked to comment on a specific long-term investment plan, one for the next 10-15 years. Namely, the question was […]

May 22, 2019 | Powerful Signal from the GDX

Gold and silver declined a bit yesterday, but mining stocks reversed and closed the session higher. It seems that the miners showed strength, especially that they formed a bullish reversal candlestick. But did they? The reversal candlesticks should be confirmed by strong volume and what we saw in the GDX ETF yesterday was the lowest […]

May 20, 2019 | Gold’s Exciting Boredom

The last few trading days in gold were quite interesting, but overall gold has been a quite boring market in the last couple of months. Gold’s volatility index dropped to new lows as the current back and forth movement is just a small part of the same kind of movement on a broader scale. It’s […]

May 15, 2019 | Gold on the Verge of a Massive Move

Gold hasn’t had much success moving higher yesterday. Its breakout above the neckline of the previously completed head-and-shoulders pattern is close to being invalidated. Will that invalidation happen prior to or shortly after the Friday’s options expiry? In assessing the short-term outlook, we look at many factors, including the gold miners-to-gold ratio dynamics. Will they […]

May 13, 2019 | Can You Afford To Ignore These Two Flawless Gold Slide Indicators?

We had warned you about the miners’ bluff and we hope that you heeded it. Gold is still testing the neck level of the head-and-shoulders pattern, but silver is already back at its 2019 lows, while miners broke decisively below them. It may seem that the miners have declined enough and that a rebound is […]

May 8, 2019 | Miners’ Strength – What If It Isn’t Just a Bluff?

The stock market took a dive, and gold with silver barely moved higher. Miners had little reason to rally, especially that they have been underperforming gold for many days now. And yet, gold stocks and silver stocks moved visibly higher. What if it isn’t just a bluff? What if it’s the first sign that the […]

May 6, 2019 | Perfectly Bearish Rally in the Precious Metals Sector

Yes, you have read that right. Rallies are not necessarily bullish, and declines are not necessarily bearish. If it was the case, it would be possible to make a living by going long every time a market moves higher on the previous day, and going short when it declines. But the market is much more […]

April 17, 2019 | Mayday: The Gold Juggernaut Is Seriously Taking On Water

Last April, while discussing the boomerang question about the trigger that is needed for gold to decline, we emphasized that gold can decline on… absolutely nothing. It’s imperative to keep watching the signs and determine when the market is really ready to move. There’s a lot of calculations, trading techniques etc. behind all that, but […]

April 12, 2019 | Gold’s Near-Term Downside Target

Gold declined and silver plunged. Gold to silver ratio temporarily spiked to 88. And you know that it’s not shocking or surprising – it’s all unwinding just like it was likely to. Applying the techniques that successfully detected the recent corrective upswing and its end, to what we have right now, provides us with price […]

April 8, 2019 | Silver’s Rally and Two Record-breakers

One may say that not much has happened last week in case of gold and silver, but it’s impossible to describe the action in mining stocks in the same way. Miners started the previous week with a slide only to come back with vengeance before the week was over, changing the short-term picture for the […]

April 1, 2019 | Don’t Miss These Rare Fundamental and Technical Developments for Gold

It’s not that often that we see such a strong confluence of two rarely occurring phenomena. The deeper you go in exploring them, the more sense they make. You see, it’s the strength of complementarity in action. Never to miss a paradigm-changing event, we’re proud to be the first to share this ground-breaking knowledge with […]
