Gold Miners Are Coming Alive

Our most interesting observation of this week is that gold has traded flat for a couple of days but that gold and silver miners were rising significantly on those days. We know that miners have a track record of leading the metals both higher and lower. That being said, this week’s price action in the gold mining space could be of exceptional significance. The three key gold and silver mining indices are all flashing the same bullish signals. The chart below features several indicators which are mainly sending bullish signals.

Gold’s Bullish Flag Breakout Targets $1200

Gold’s Bullish Flag Breakout Targets $1200

Despite a modicum of weakness today, gold’s technical outlook remains optimistic in the near-term. After peaking near 1190 last week, gold has nudged its way back down to 1165 as of writing. The shallow, controlled pullback after the big rally of the previous days has created a clear bullish flag pattern. It’s worth noting that, despite its name, this pattern is only seen as a bullish sign if we see a breakout above the top of the flag (currently near 1180).

Gold Analogue: Then and Now

Gold Analogue:  Then and Now

Gold prices can be amazingly volatile, especially when fear increases and a majority of people lose confidence in debt based fiat currencies, central banks, and politicians. If the analogue continues for several more years, we might see gold prices increase by a factor of five to ten into the $5,000 to $10,000 range in five to seven years (double the 3.5 year rally in the 1970s). We should not expect this analogue to predict gold prices, but we should NOT discount the possibility of a similar pattern unfolding.

Gold Is Exceptionally Cheap At The Moment

Gold Is Exceptionally Cheap At The Moment

According to Hathaway, gold is exceptionally cheap at the moment because the radical monetary policies practiced by the world’s leading central banks have led to an egregious mispricing of risk by investors at large. We believe that the Fed’s continuing (and increasingly glaring) inability to normalize interest rates validates our long standing thesis that monetary extremism cannot be unwound without triggering a slew of unacceptably painful consequences for the holders of risk assets and bonds.

Gold Price Strengthening as Debt Ceiling Debate Heats Up … Again

Since President Obama’s inauguration in 2009, the federal debt held by the public has soared by 107%, according to recent data published by the Treasury Department.

Now the Obama administration is hoping to extract one last debt deal out of the retiring GOP Speaker.

Will The Gold Price Close 2015 with a Gain?

After its stellar performance this week, gold might do something it hasn’t done since 2012—that is, end the year in positive territory. Responding to a weaker U.S. dollar, continued contraction in global growth and wide speculation that interest rates will stay near-zero for the remainder of the year, the yellow metal broke above its 200-day moving average and is close to erasing its 2015 losses.

Why Obama Is Bullish for Gold And Silver

Ironically, we see Obama as a positive influence on gold and silver, for none of this will end well as the increasingly internationally shunned US tries to make the changes it wants to see, when such misdirected efforts backfire and only add fuel to the fire. Gold has had stronger rallies, such as starting from the end of June 2013, to keep a perspective on current market activity and not get overly swayed that a final bottom is in place. What bears closer scrutiny now will be the character of any reactions.
