Gold, Gold Mining Stocks and the S&P 500

Gold, Gold Mining Stocks and the S&P 500

The Eurozone crisis benefited Gold Prices initially but as the panic has abated, stocks are rallying back to their highs while gold has sold off and Gold Mining stocks are trying to hold their lows. What is going on? asks Jordan Roy-Byrne at The Daily Gold. Are we in the twilight zone? Bull and bear markets are long lasting, providing ample time for trends and counter trends to continually reappear and redevelop. The long-term activity of precious metals and common stocks is not a mystery. Gold has continued to hit all-time highs while the gold stocks eclipsed and maintain 2008 highs as support. Yes, common stocks are also rallying but are nowhere close to seriously testing 2008 […]

Gold-Stock Upleg Cycles

Gold-Stock Upleg Cycles

No bull market, no matter how powerful, fundamentally strong, or long-lived, rises in a nice linear fashion.  They all flow and ebb, surging forward two steps in major uplegs before retreating back one step in major corrections.  Visualize a sine wave oscillating within a rising trend.  This seemingly-capricious behavior is actually very beneficial to bulls’ health and longevity, it keeps sentiment (greed and fear) balanced. And unsurprisingly gold stocks, with their extraordinary volatility, are no exception to this ironclad bull-market rule.  Gold stocks’ amazing bull market has advanced in fits and starts.  This technical price action is driven purely by sentiment, the same dynamic that affects every popular market.  And […]

Silver Breaks Downtrend, Junior Miners Outperforming Majors

On January 3, 2012 I wrote to my readers that silver would begin outperforming gold similar to what we saw in 2010.  On Friday we saw a major gain in silver of close to 5%, breaking the 50 day moving average for the first time since the Operation Twist decline in September.  This was an attempt by the Federal Reserve to manipulate commodity prices lower while artificially inflating U.S. dollars and bonds.  It appears that this temporary fix may be reversing to the benefit of undervalued junior miners of both precious and industrial metals. On January 3rd, 2012 Barron’s wrote an article based on the premium report I sent to […]

Recovery In Mining Stocks? Breakouts Out Of Downtrends And Bases Beginning

The end of 2011 and the beginning of 2012 greeted investors with spooky market stories to scare investors. A prominent cartoon in the Wall St. Journal depicted a pretty lady shrieking, “The DOW Sank 17%”. Another balloon read “The US Loses Its AAA Rating”. She is screaming, “Who Will Fix Europe?”. Another caption reads, “$71 Billion Yanked From U.S. Stock Mutual Funds”. Another hysterical cry exclaims, “I Want Treasuries!”. As if that cartoon wasn’t enough to scare readers, the headline read, “Spooked Investors Seek Safety: Volatile Quarter Leaves Market Victims Wondering What Is Next”. Another ghastly pronouncement we wrote in early October to the surprise of many was, “Beware Of […]
