  • While the Dollar Rests, Is It Time for Gold to Rise and Shine?

    May 17, 2022, 7:54 AM

    Practically everything that I wrote yesterday either happened in tune with that or it remains up-to-date, so today’s technical part will be rather brief.

    In short, gold reversed yesterday’s decline after almost touching its previous 2022 lows, and at the same time, it practically erased the entire war-tension-based rally – just like it was supposed to.

    Gold ended the day only $5.80 higher, but the important thing is that it reversed at all. Gold’s RSI also bounced off the 30 level, which can be viewed as a buy signal on its own.

    Junior miners were up by almost 1% yesterday, about 3 times more than gold. They continue to show strength, and our long positions (that became profitable almost immediately) are getting more profitable also in today’s early trading as the GDXJ is up in London trading.

    In yesterday’s analysis, I wrote that the S&P 500 invalidated its head and shoulders pattern on an intraday basis, and even though it declined very modestly yesterday, it’s up in a clear manner in today’s pre-market trading.

    This means that the odds of a short-term rally in the following days have greatly increased. This makes the current long position in junior mining stocks even more justified.

    Also, as far as the USD Index is concerned, I previously wrote the following:

    The higher of the recent highs is at 103.96 right now, so if the analogy to 2014 is to remain intact, the USD Index could now top at close to 104.5 or even 105.

    That’s exactly what happened recently. On Thursday, the USD Index moved to 104.96, and in Friday’s trading it rallied above 105 (to 105.065) and it invalidated the breakout above this level - which is in perfect tune with what I wrote above. Consequently, it seems that we could now see a move to about 103-103.5, after which USD’s rally could continue.

    The opposite is likely to take place in the precious metals sector. Gold, silver, and mining stocks are likely to rally in the near term, and then – after topping at higher levels – their decline would continue.

    The USD Index futures moved to about 103.7 in today’s pre-market trading (so far), so you might be wondering if the bottom is in or about to be, and therefore, will gold stop rallying.

    Please note that it’s possible that the USD Index bottoms shortly in the 103-103.5 range but then continues to trade sideways for a few days, while gold continues to rally. In fact, that’s what happened in late 2014. Consequently, what we saw so far today doesn’t imply that gold’s, silver’s, or miners’ rallies are over.

  • Here’s Why I’m Bullish on Gold Miners

    May 16, 2022, 8:51 AM

    Are you wondering if it’s worth choosing a long position in the gold market now? Well, consider taking a look at the junior miners first to find out.

    On Thursday, I wrote that I was going to go long on junior mining stocks, and in the following hours, the GDXJ moved even a bit lower, providing you with a great opportunity to exit short positions and enter long ones in a comfortable manner. Hopefully, you did that, because the GDXJ rallied by almost 4% on Friday and ended the week above $37. The popular leveraged ETF, JNUG, was up by over 7% in a single day.

    If you’re long on miners and you reaped those profits - congratulations! If not, let me re-emphasize what I wrote in Friday’s extensive flagship Alert: it seems to me that the short-term rally has only begun, and that quick profits are likely just around the corner.

    Looking at gold’s pre-market decline, one might get second thoughts about the above, but please note that we are long on mining stocks, not gold, and there is a good reason why I chose mining stocks as a proxy and not gold or silver. The reason is that miners tend to show strength relative to gold before the bottom and then immediately thereafter.

    Consequently, even if gold didn’t bottom last week and we’re seeing a bottom more or less right now, it doesn’t necessarily mean that miners will test their lows too.

    Let’s check what’s gold been doing so far this week.

    Gold is down to new lows in today’s pre-market trading, and it’s well below my initial target area for it. However, another important support level is just around the corner.

    I don’t mean just the psychologically important (being round) $1,800 level. That too, but it’s crucial to note that gold just moved to levels from which the entire war-tension-based rally started. If it wasn’t for those tensions, gold would likely have plunged profoundly in February and perhaps it would be already after or getting close to its final low. However, since the war has indeed started, gold peaked (when the tensions and uncertainty peaked), and it’s been moving lower since that time – despite what most analysts told you.

    Here's what I wrote on February 28, 2022, in the Gold & Silver Trading Alert entitled “Since There is a War, Gold Will Rise, Right? Wrong.”:

    Let’s keep in mind that for gold to decline, the war doesn’t have to end, it doesn’t have to be won by either side. The only thing that matters with regard to it, is how big the uncertainty and concern is. And the peak uncertainty/concern might be today, as everything is new, and the situation is dramatically changing the geopolitical environment in Europe.

    For comparison, remember Covid-19 cases, deaths in early 2020? That was just a tiny fraction of what we saw later. However, it was new and unknown. People were particularly scared then, and the markets moved particularly significantly then – not based on additional millions of cases and thousands of deaths next year.

    Investing and trading are difficult. If it was easy, most people would be making money – and they’re not. Right now, it’s most difficult to ignore the urge to “run for cover” if you physically don’t have to. The markets move on rumor and sell the fact. This repeats over and over again in many (all?) markets, and we have direct analogies to similar situations in gold itself. And junior miners are likely to decline the most, also based on the massive declines that are likely to take place (in fact, it already started) in the stock markets.

    That wasn’t the peak uncertainty, but the latter peaked about a week later, and the war is still taking place months later, so it seems that one could say that the above proved to be correct.

    Since junior miners just moved to new 2022 lows, it was also profitable not to chase the “emotional stampede”, but rather focus on the analogies to the previous situations from the past. Based on how the situation has developed in the markets so far, it seems that the clearest analogy is to how the gold market performed in 2001, based on the U.S.-Afghanistan war. I provided the chart in my Feb. 28, 2022, analysis, but here it is again:

    Obraz zawierający tekst, wewnątrzOpis wygenerowany automatycznie

    The decline had been big and sharp, but please note when it ended. Gold formed an initial, and then final, short-term bottom, very close to the price levels at which the rally started before the outbreak of the war.

    Fast-forward to the current situation – these are the levels that gold is approaching in today’s pre-market trading.

    The January 2022 low is $1,781.30 and the February 2022 low (which is also the yearly low) is $1,778.80.

    Today’s pre-market low is $1,787.44 (at least so far). That’s less than $10 away from the above-mentioned strong support levels.

    All this means is that gold and silver prices might have just bottomed or that they could bottom shortly.

    Let’s not forget what miners tend to do before and right after bottoms – they tend to show strength relative to gold. Let’s check what the GDXJ ETF is doing in today’s London trading.

    It corrected somewhat, but unlike gold, the GDXJ didn’t move to new lows today. In other words, junior miners are showing strength, just as they are supposed to around the bottoms.

    There are three more things on the above chart that I would like to discuss.

    1. The first is that a daily pause right after the turnaround is common for the GDXJ, and I marked several other occasions where we saw something similar. This includes what we saw after the sharp early-2020 correction.
    2. The second thing is that it’s clear that the GDXJ just (on Friday) invalidated the small breakdown below its previous (2021 and 2022) lows. This is a huge bullish development (for the short term only!). Invalidations of breakdowns immediately become bullish signals, without the need to wait for confirmation, and that’s what we just saw.
    3. The third indication is the triangle-vertex-based reversal, which will take place in about a week. It points to some kind of reversal taking place on May 22. That’s Sunday, so based on the above, we might expect a turnaround on Friday or next Monday.

    This serves as an indication that we might want to prepare ourselves to close the current long position and go back on the short side of the trade before the end of the week – perhaps on Friday. Geopolitically, a lot can happen over the weekend, so I’d prefer to be positioned along with the medium-term trend beforehand.

    The invalidation described as the “second thing” is also something that we saw from the U.S. perspective, so it’s definitely important.

    The thing that I’d like to add is that the RSI just moved back above 30 after being below it, which is a classic buy signal. That’s what marked the end of the 2020 decline, and something very similar to what marked the end of the initial March decline (RSI just touched 30 at that time, but it was enough).

    Please note that the triangle-vertex-based reversal point is practically the same from the U.S. point of view, so it adds credibility to the scenario in which junior miners top close to the end of this week.

    This fits the target area that I provided on Friday on the above 4-hour-candlestick GDXJ chart.

    The target would also fit the sharpness of the recent decline. After all, corrections tend to be similarly volatile as the price moves that are being corrected. Of course, let’s keep in mind that the current long position is for trading capital only, not for long-term investments, as I don’t think that the medium-term downtrend in gold, silver, and mining stocks is completely over yet.

  • Much to Gold’s Dissatisfaction, the USDX Seems Unstoppable

    May 13, 2022, 9:42 AM

    The USDX and the precious metals market are like reverse images. Thus, it's possible to guess what gold and silver will do as the dollar gallops up.


    Miners and silver declined in a truly epic manner, and yes, the same is likely to take place in the following months, as markets wake up to the reality, which is that the USD Index and real interest rates are going up.

    Speaking of the USD Index, after invalidating the breakout below the multi-year head-and-shoulders pattern, the USDX was poised to soar, just like I’ve been expecting it to do for more than a year, and that’s exactly what it did.

    The RSI is currently above 70, but since the USDX is in a medium-term rally and is already after a visible correction, it can rally further. Please note that we saw the same thing in 2008 and 2014. I marked the corrections with blue rectangles.

    Still, the USD Index is now practically right at its next strong resistance – at about 104.

    I previously wrote the following about this target:

    It doesn’t mean that the USD Index’s rally is likely to end there. It’s not – but the USDX could take a breather when it reaches 104. Then, after many investors think that the top has been reached as the USDX corrects, the big rally is likely to continue.

    The important detail here is that the consolidation close to the 104 level doesn’t have to be really significant (perhaps 1-2 index points of back-and-forth movement?) and it definitely doesn’t have to take long. The interest rates are going higher, and investors appear to have just woken up to this reality – it will take some time before everyone digests what’s going on. Before the late-reality-adopters join in, the USD Index could be trading much, much higher.

    Back in 2014, when the USD Index approached its previous highs (close to 89), it consolidated so quickly that it’s almost not visible on the above chart – it took just a bit more than a week (from Dec. 8, 2014 – 89.56 to Dec. 16, 2014 – 87.83).

    I previously wrote the following:

    We could see something similar this time – and as the USD Index corrects for about a week, the same thing could take place in other markets as well: stocks and PMs. If junior miners were after a very sharp slide at that time, they would be likely to correct sharply as well.

    I would like to add one important detail. Back in 2014, the USD Index didn’t correct after reaching its previous high. It corrected after moving above it. The higher of the highs was the March 2009 high, at 89.11.

    The higher of the recent highs is at 103.96 right now, so if the analogy to 2014 is to remain intact, the USD Index could now top at close to 104.5 or even 105.

    That’s exactly what happened recently. Yesterday, the USD Index moved to 104.96, which is in perfect tune with what I wrote above. Consequently, it seems that we could now see a move to about 103-103.5, after which USD’s rally could continue.

    The opposite is likely to take place in the precious metals sector. Gold, silver, and mining stocks are likely to rally in the near term, and then – after topping at higher levels – their decline would continue.

  • Gold & Silver Trading Alert #2

    May 12, 2022, 10:45 AM

    Available to premium subscribers only.

  • Cabin Crew, Prepare for Landing: Gold Miners Plane Goes Down

    May 12, 2022, 7:54 AM

    Once again, practically everything that I wrote in Monday’s analysis, Tuesday’s analysis, and yesterday's analysis remains up-to-date.

    In yesterday’s analysis, I wrote the following about the stock market:

    Speaking of the general stock market, it moved slightly higher yesterday (in terms of closing prices), but the move was not significant enough to invalidate the breakdown below the neck level of the head-and-shoulders formation. Therefore, the breakdown is now almost confirmed, and the situation is already more bearish than it was yesterday.

    At the moment of writing these words, stocks are once again trying to rally, but so far the rally is not as big as yesterday’s pre-market rally that was just erased. Thus, I doubt that stocks will be able to avoid falling in the near term.

    The S&P 500 is currently confirming a breakdown below its head and shoulders pattern. Once confirmed (just one more close below the neck level is required), the formation will be complete, and the next target will be below 3,500. So, yes, I expect the S&P 500 to decline below its 2021 lows in the near future.

    Despite yesterday’s attempt to move higher, stocks closed the day below the neck level of the head and shoulders pattern for the third consecutive day. The bearish H&S pattern was confirmed, just as I expected.

    The implications are bearish, and while the target based on this formation is slightly below 3,500, it wouldn’t surprise me to see a rebound from about 3,800 – that’s where the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement is located. I previously wrote about it in the following way:

    Is there any nearby support level that would be strong enough to stop this short-term decline? Yes: it’s the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement level based on the 2020-2022 rally.

    Back in 2020, the very first decline erased 50% of the preceding rally, but back then the market was much more volatile than it is right now, so it’s understandable.

    If we see a decline to the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement and then a comeback to the previously broken neck level of the head and shoulders pattern, it would fit practically everything that I wrote above and in the previous days / weeks.

    It would trigger another immediate-term decline in silver and mining stocks in the near term, wchich would be followed by a (quite likely tradable) rebound.

    So, it seems that the general stock market is quite close to its near-term target area but not yet at it – another move lower appears likely.

    Having said that, let’s take a look at the other (usually main) determinant of the driver of junior mining stock prices – gold.

    In yesterday’s analysis, I commented on the gold chart in the following way:

    As gold moved right to the middle of my target area, it seems that it might not want to move much lower before correcting. However, it’s still possible that the bottom would form over several days, and if the stock market declines during that time, junior miners could decline despite the lack of declines in gold.

    If the above is the case, then once the stock market moves back up, juniors will likely soar back with vengeance, like a coiled spring that’s finally able to expand. For now, it seems that the general stock market will take juniors lower (in the very near term, that is).

    Please take one more look at the part that I put in bold. The stock market declined yesterday, while gold moved higher. What did the mining stocks do? The GDX ETF was slightly lower and the GDXJ ETF was slightly higher, but overall they didn’t do anything despite the intraday attempt to rally.

    The above is in perfect tune with the current situation in gold and stocks. As gold rallied yesterday, and it moved a bit lower once again in today’s pre-market trading (~$7 at the moment of writing these words), it’s likely forming a broader bottom here. Since stocks (S&P 500 futures) are trading lower (they are down by 0.5%) in today’s pre-market trading, it seems that junior miners are about to get another bearish push.

    As stocks are likely to move a bit lower before correcting, so are junior miners. This means that practically everything that I wrote about their performance and outlook remains up-to-date – the market simply agreed:

    In short, just like in the case of silver, I decided to move our exit prices lower – a bit below the previous lows.

    Why? Because that’s where there’s the next really strong support – provided by the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement and because it seems that the general stock market will decline a bit more before correcting.

    I mean, I expected juniors to decline along with the general stock market, but the huge size of juniors’ decline was more than I had expected to happen during just one session compared to what happened in the S&P 500.

    If stocks have more to fall (much more than just a repeat of yesterday’s decline) and gold could repeat its yesterday’s decline, it seems that junior miners could more than repeat their slide. Since they fell by over $3 yesterday, juniors can now decline by at least another $3. This would bring them below their previous lows and below the previous target of about $37.

    In fact, given the strength of the momentum, I wouldn’t even rule out the scenario in which miners slide to ~$34. Then again, let’s not forget that miners tend to show some kind of strength before rallying, so the pace of their decline would be likely to diminish before the turnaround. Therefore, expecting the sharpness of the decline to continue all the way down is not realistic. Consequently, ~$36 seems more realistic as a short-term downside target than $34 is.

    Besides, the GDXJ’s 4-hour chart also suggests a move to this area.

    Consolidations tend to be followed by price moves that are similar to the moves that preceded them. Applying this to the letter provides us with a target that’s slightly below $36.

    To summarize the technical part of today’s analysis, it seems that junior miners will move to their short-term target soon, which will enable us to exit the current short positions in them and (if one wants to do so, that is) to enter temporary long positions to benefit from the likely rebound.

    As soon as the target levels are reached in the case of the GDXJ, I think that exiting short and entering long positions will be justified from the risk to reward point of view (regardless of whether you get a confirmation from me). Please note that the move to ~$36 could be sharp, and it could be reversed on an intraday basis.
