Speculators Are Finally Bailing Out Of Gold – And That’s A Good Thing

"As gold rose, the futures contract traders whose games tend to dictate near-term price action had set the metal up for a fall. Specifically, the speculators (who are always wrong at the extremes) were ridiculously long. With the suckers all-in, a big correction was needed to restore balance. 

But it didn’t come. Several months passed with gold treading water, leading some to wonder if the paper market tail had finally stopped wagging the physical market dog."

No wonder gold got clocked like it did!

Hedge funds were actually busy adding more longs and covering shorts over the past week's reporting period. As soon as those downside support levels were taken out after the election results were digested, gold bulls were getting mauled in a big way.

As you can see, every single speculative category remains net long as of last Tuesday. A great number of those longs are either underwater or have already been liquidated.

I am more anxious to see this coming Friday's report to be honest as that will contain the positioning changes AFTER the election; that is what will be most important. Suffice to it say that an awful lot of people bet on the wrong direction for a gold move and they are now paying the price.

Additionally, we had yet another drop in reported gold holdings in GLD this afternoon.

A Developing Case for Caution on Gold

In the last eLetter (July 7) we noted that gold's daily chart pattern target was higher, at around 1400 and that silver had already achieved its daily pattern target of 20.  From that eLetter...

"This momentum looks like a profit taking opportunity (profit taking is always a good thing and you do not owe any gold bug, miner or tout your allegiance) in progress for traders and those who want to lock in gains.  But what happened last week rammed home some important technical confirmations as well."

The sector then began to ease as it turned out to be a good opportunity for those who would take profits to do so.  But the situation is complex, as only a minor pullback has taken place, risk is high but up trends are firmly intact (I personally believe there is a slightly better than even chance that new highs can be seen in the short-term). 

This week's NFTRH 404 has two main themes; the first to further detail the short, intermediate and long-term implications of last week's bullish 'Breadth Thrust' in the US stock market (see the initial public post this subject: Breadth Thrust: Prelude to a Crash?) and the second to illustrate some building negatives to the first phase of gold's new bull market.  Following is a small portion of the gold analysis.

Gold, Miners Under Trump

Donald Trump’s epic underdog victory climaxing the US presidential race was radically unexpected by the great majority of the world.  Equally if not more surprising was the subsequent days’ market reaction.  Stock markets, gold, and gold-mining stocks did exactly the opposite of what was universally forecast for a Trump win.  This has left contrarian traders wondering how gold and gold stocks will likely fare under Trump.
