MUST READ: Gold Price 2015: Forecasts And Predictions and Gold Outlook For 2015

Gold And Silver Charts Are The Compelling Story. Fundamentals Do Not Apply.

Volume increased [effort], the highest volume for the week. Price made a slightly higher probe above the last 10 TDs, but note where it closed: mid-range the bar. On increased volume, the mid-range close tells us sellers were aggressive and overcame the effort of buyers sufficient to push price down from the high of the day. In a down trend, the onus is on buyers to effect change. Buyers are not meeting that burden. It is tough to change a trend. Respect it, at all times, until a change has been confirmed.

The Case for an Explosive Surprise in The Price Of Gold

I’ve been bearish on gold for so long that my successively lower targets have become almost perfunctory. Lately, I’ve focused on a ‘Hidden Pivot’ target at $817, the attainment of which would presumably wash out the last of the die-hard bulls, clearing the way for a resumption of the long-term bull market. Now, however, I am obliged to consider an alternative possibility — i.e., an explosive move without the washout. Although I lack the imagination to envision such world-shaking news as might cause this to happen, I credit a relatively recent Rick’s Picks subscriber, Michael Gibbons, with jarring me awake.

Gold Price Target

The bearish target at 1059.70 (see chart) seems clear and compelling to me — so much so as to beg the question of why the futures have been thrashing around for the last two weeks just above it. Is this a bullish consolidation? A bearish distribution? Regardless, it is happening in an odd place relative to some clear Hidden Pivot support and resistance levels

Deutsche Bank’s Gold Price Outlook: A Contrarian Indicator?

Could it be that these convincing forecasts are a contrarian indicator? Let’s face it, the “consensus trade” is that gold will and must go lower. When everyone is convinced about an asset moving in one direction, usually the opposite happens.

Gold Prices Hold Steady after Last Weeks’s Bear Raid

While, I think the current negative sentiment towards gold is unjustified, and set to continue, as far as I am concerned, the investment case for gold remains intact. The long-term investment case for gold is not based on short-term price movements. I believe every investor should own some physical gold and have it stored out of the banking system. And, if you have not yet included gold in your portfolio this is probably a great time to buy. It may go down lower, but you will almost never find the bottom.

Mind that gold is primarily a monetary metal, although it has also characteristics of commodities. So when analyzing the gold price charts, please make sure to also look at the more fundamental aspects of gold. An economic assessment, as well as an in-depth analysis of the monetary environment, are key. By doing so, one could find for instance a huge disconnect in gold being an investable commodity versus gold being a hedge against monetary, particularly after the gold price drop in 2013.
