How To Know When Gold’s Bull Market Has Resumed?

We are closely watching gold’s 90 week moving average (WMA), which was broken in December 2012, and, by doing so, confirmed the start of gold’s bear market. The 90 WMA comes in at $1226.96 /oz, and it will be a critical test for the precious metals complex. At least 3 weekly closes above its 90 WMA will prove to be a confirmation of gold moving out of its bear market.

Gold Bottomed After Recovering From Its 50% Retracement?

The monthly bars in the chart show that the spot price of gold has retraced exactly 50% of its ten-year bull market between 2001 and 2011. The fifty percent retracment line often acts as a major support level. It’s also noteworthy that the RSI line has been trending sideways near oversold territory. All of which suggests that precious metals may be scraping bottom.

Gold And Silver Are Trapped In A Low-End Trading Range

Gold And Silver Are Trapped In A Low-End Trading Range

The forces described in this article are the true ones influencing gold and silver, not record coin sales, not record purchases month in and month out for the past few years by China, India, and Russia. Waiting patiently on the sidelines are gold and silver, wanting to have their day, and that day will happen, just not knowing when. Again, while the current rally seems fairly decent on the daily, the more controlling larger weekly time frame is not that impressive. A weekly chart is a stronger guide than a daily. Even the smaller range of last week, relative to the week before, suggests sellers are keeping a check on this market, at least for now.

Is Silver’s Break Out An Early Bullish Signal For Gold?

The chart shows that silver has already broken out from a major 3-year declining trendline. Silver has a track record to lead the precious metals complex. Is silver’s early break signalling a trend change? Or is this simply another false breakout, as we have witnessed quite some over the last years? Given the above conditions, we believe there is a fair chance that this breakout is for real.

Two Charts That Gold Bulls Will Love

Two Charts That Gold Bulls Will Love

First, the U.S. dollar is taking quite some time consolidating. With a U.S. Fed kicking the can down the road when it comes to hiking interest rates, the market has clearly understood that the dollar cannot rally, at least not in the short to mid term. The strongly declining volume on the chart suggests interest in the dollar is waning. Second, gold is attempting to make a huge breakout, as evidenced on the following chart. The number of touchpoints on the resistance line is 5. The area between support and resistance line is minimal. If gold will succeed in breaking out, it will be THE long anticipated trend change.

Close To Technical Buy Signals In Gold And Silver

For the first time since the precious metals topped in 2011, both the Silver and Gold charts are constructing possible bottom configurations. The monthly Gold chart displays the bear trend that began with the completion of a major descending triangle in April 2013. As shown on the weekly graph, the decline in Silver from the 2011 high has been one for the textbooks. The decline has complied with the principles of classical charting as well as any other market in recent years.

Why Gold Prices Will Rise

Why Gold Prices Will Rise

Gold prices will rise because of war, increasing debt to pay for those wars, and the inevitable destruction of purchasing power of fiat currencies. Because insolvent, hopelessly indebted countries owe far more than can ever be repaid in CURRENT dollars, euros, pounds and yen – and therefore central banks will “print” and devalue. Because, regardless of the story promoted by politicians and bankers, it is unlikely that interest rates can be maintained at multi-generational lows for several more decades. Because the inevitable derivative disaster will make the 2008 crisis look like a summer rain compared to the financial hurricane that approaches.

Gold And Silver: A Reality Check

As we look to the charts, they continue to support suppression prevailing over-supply and demand. The average person uses daily and intra day charts to assess what is going on. This is somewhat akin to “looking at the trees instead of the forest.” The larger time frames are the equivalent of the forest for they depict a truer picture, and smart money references them without regard to the lower time frames used by most everyone else.

Gold and Miners Jump as Dollar Dumps

Gold and Miners Jump as Dollar Dumps

Gold and gold miners benefit from falling bond yields today. Gold is a non-yielding asset. As a result, its appeal increases when bond yields fall. That’s especially true if the dollar is dropping as well (more on that shortly). Gold may also be benefiting from increased tensions in the Mideast. The daily bars on the first chart show the Gold SPDR (GLD) jumping the equivalent of $23 dollars today (+2.2%). Gold is recovering from a five-year low, and has a long way to go to reverse its major downtrend. The same is true of gold miners.

Global Players at the Financial Poker Table

Global Players at the Financial Poker Table

The Fed and Treasury can “print” trillions of currency units and commercial banks can borrow into existence trillions more, but ultimately gold and silver must be revalued much higher to compensate for the extraordinary printing and devaluation of fiat currencies.

Gold and Silver, Good and Bad Choices

Buying gold in early January 1980 and for much of the next 19 years was probably a bad choice, so do your own research to make good choices. While trading paper currencies for gold is, in my opinion, currently a good exchange, it is not always a good choice.
