  1. Gold has staged a superb rebound from the $1310 support zone, but that was overshadowed by the truly spectacular reversals taking place in most of the Western world’s gold stocks!
  2. Please  click here now. Double-click to enlarge this gold chart. I like the technical action being displayed right now. Here’s why:
  3. First, $1370 is massive resistance. It’s understandable that gold would build a modest head and shoulders top pattern after arriving at this key price zone.
  4. What’s especially positive is that gold has only modestly declined in the face of this resistance and top pattern. My key 14,7,7 Stochastics oscillator is also modestly oversold now, which is good news.
  5. For even better news, please  click here now. Double-click to enlarge.  This morning, the dollar broke below key support in the 108 price area against the yen.
  6. When investors bet against central banks, they tend to lose. When they bet against the President of the United States, they can get blown right off the financial map.
  7. The bottom line is that President Trump was elected on a mandate to bash the dollar lower, and it is getting beat on like a rag doll by the yen right now.
  8. The bear flag-like action occurred as the dollar approached this support zone. That is ominous for the dollar bugs, and fabulous news for gold.
  9. Investors don’t need to “back up the truck” when buying precious metal assets right now, but they should be emotionally positive and focused more on gold stocks than bullion.
  10. That’s because there is so much news taking place fundamentally in the gold market that favours the miners. Inflation is rising, mainly because quantitative tightening is pushing money out of government bonds and into the banking system.
  11. That’s raising interest rates, incentivizing banks to lend, and putting pressure on the US government’s ability to finance itself. Please  click here now. Double-click to enlarge. Since breaking the neckline of a daily chart head and shoulders top pattern, the US T-bond hasn’t even staged a minor rally!

What the Stock Market Decline Means for Gold and Gold Stocks

Posted by Jordan Roy Byrne - The Daily Gold

on Monday, 12 February 2018 06:02

It was a rough week for investors in stocks and stocks of all kinds. The S&P 500 lost 5%. Emerging Markets also lost 5%. Gold Stocks, which had weakened before the broader equity market have been hit hard. They (GDX, GDXJ) also lost 5% last week. The HUI Gold Bugs Index (which excludes royalty companies unlike GDX) lost 7%. After a strong start to the year, gold stocks have essentially given back all their gains. Nevertheless, we remain extremely optimistic on gold stocks over the next 12-18 months as trends in the economy and stock market should begin to support Gold after the second quarter.

Historically speaking some of the best performance in Gold and gold stocks occurred during or after a bear market in stocks. The best examples can be found in the 1970s and 2000s as the charts show. Gold surged after the bottom in stocks in 1970 and continued to perform very well during the 1973-1974 bear market. After a brief but sharp bear in 1975-1976 Gold rebounded strongly as the S&P 500 began a mild bear market in 1977. Years later Gold emerged from a significant bottom in 2001 while the stock market endured its worst bear market in a quarter century. Gold continued to perform even after the market bottom in late 2002. Gold emerged from the global financial crisis before the stock market but continued to make new highs after the stock market bottomed in March 2009.

Goldman Sachs boosts gold price forecast, sees $1,450/oz in 12 months

Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter

Posted by From a report by analysts Michael Hinds and Jeffrey Currie

on Thursday, 08 February 2018 07:17

The report shows that they raised their 3, 6, and 12 months forecast to $1,350, $1,375, and $1,450/oz respectively.

Previous forecast was $1,225, $1,200, and $1,225/oz for 3, 6, and 12 months.
 
The reason for the revision was more towards stronger emerging market growth, with more upward pressure also seen from stronger EM currencies against a weaker dollar and potential for hedging demand in a choppy market environment.
 
They also argue that higher inflation breakevens due to rising oil prices will help boost gold prices as well.

Gold has been on the retreat over the past two weeks after peaking just above last year's high, and even the recent decline in sentiment from equities (and even talks on inflation) have failed to keep prices up. Gold is now down 0.59% on the day at $1,310.74.

Fear Creeps Back into Stocks, Shining a Light on Gold

Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter

Posted by Frank Holmes - US Global Investors

gold-stock-market-02-2018Monday’s monster stock selloff is exhibit A for why I frequently recommend a 10 percent weighting in gold, with 5 percent in bullion and jewelry, the other 5 percent in high-quality gold stocks, mutual funds and ETFs.

What began on Friday after the positive wage growth report extended into Monday, with all major averages dipping into negative territory for the year. The Dow Jones Industrial Average saw its steepest intraday point drop in history, losing nearly 1,600 points at its low, while the CBOE Volatility Index, widely known as the “fear index,” spiked almost 100 percent to hit its highest point ever recorded.

Gold bullion and a number of gold stocks, however, did precisely as expected, holding up well against the rout and helping savvy investors ward off even more catastrophic losses. Klondex Mines and Harmony Gold Mining, among our favorite small-cap names in the space, ended the day up 4.6 percent and 4.8 percent, respectively. Royalty company Sandstorm Gold added 1.4 percent.

The research backs up my 10 percent weighting recommendation. The following chart, courtesy of BCA Research, shows that gold has historically outperformed other assets in times of geopolitical crisis and recession. Granted, the selloff was not triggered specifically by geopolitics or recessionary fears, but it’s an effective reminder of the low to negative correlation between gold and other assets such as equities, cash and Treasuries.

“We expect gold will provide a good hedge against a likely equity downturn, as the bull market turns into a bear market” in the second half of 2019, BCA analysts write in their February 1 report.

The reemergence of volatility and fear raises the question of whether we could find ourselves in a bear market much sooner than that.

So how did we get here, and what can we expect in the days and weeks to come?
