Gold and Silver Stocks Breakout May Be Imminent

Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010 Oct 04, 2010 - 03:16 AM GMT

By: Clive_Maund


Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTwo of our three requirements for a major uptrend developing across the Precious Metals sector that were set out in the last Gold and Silver Market updates have now been met - first silver has broken out to clear new highs, then gold broke out above the top line of its potential bearish Rising Wedge - the only condition remaining to be fulfilled is a breakout by the stocks indices - and that may be imminent. The important complication is that both gold and silver are now critically overbought as a result of being in unbroken uptrends for many weeks and we will come to the implications of that shortly.

On its 4-year chart we can see how gold has broken above the top line of the potential Wedge drawn across the highs from last December. The pale blue trendline shown, drawn from the early 2008 highs, does not mark the top boundary of a true Wedge, but is believed to have some significance and MAY trigger a temporary reaction, which the current critically overbought condition certainly makes very possible. Gold is deep into critically overbought territory on its RSI indicator shown at the top of the chart, but still has substantial upside leeway on its MACD indicator shown at the bottom of the chart, which it should be noted can get overbought and stay overbought for a long time as the price continues to ascend.

So, we have a situation where gold is in position to accelerate away to the upside, but is at the same time critically overbought on various short-term indicators, but is nowhere near so overbought on intermediate indicators. What are we to make of this? The probable scenario here is that now gold has broken out above the resistance at the top return line of the Wedge, as described, it accelerates away to the upside, the advance being punctuated by brief "air pocket" reactions that could be increasingly violent. The current critically overbought state makes such a reaction likely either immediately or very soon. These reactions may be deeply unsettling for those long, but if the reason for them is known in advance and they expected, they can be used by traders to pyramid positions at better prices. The MINIMUM target for this advance is the lower parallel return line shown, which is currently in the $1500 - $1600 area, which is Jim Sinclair's long-standing target that looks not just easily achievable but actually quite modest - our upper parallel return line gives a MUCH higher target. Small wonder then that PM stocks look so attractive here, as despite their gains of recent weeks, they haven't even collectively broken out yet!. Many big weighty gold stocks look set to make their biggest gains in a long time and their gains can be leveraged by means of options, and the better juniors and mid-caps look set to go ballistic - we haven't been able to write them up fast enough on

The 1-year chart for gold shows recent action in more detail. On this chart we can see that although the RSI is showing a critically overbought extreme calling for consolidation or reaction soon, the uptrend to date has been steady and considerably less steep than that of last Fall or the big 2007 - 2008 rally shown on the 4-year chart , circumstances which we interpret as allowing for acceleration of the uptrend, despite a probable "air pocket" reaction soon. Thus the advance is likely to steepen considerably, with occasional scary but brief reactions along the way. It is thought that it will be a good strategy to buy aggressively on any such sharp down days, as gold is likely to turn on a dime and go roaring up again.

With the Precious Metals so strong in recent weeks, it is hardly surprising to observe on our 6-month for the US dollar index that it has been in ragged retreat. The US has always had a reputation for doing things in style, and when it comes to currency debasement no one is going to steal a march on them - while other countries are frantically trying to keep up with their own competitive devaluations and can be expected to increasingly follow the US example and indulge in a little QE (Quantitative Easing) of their own, compared to what the US is doing this is "lemonade stand" stuff - for as we can see on the US dollar index chart, the dollar is definitely winning the "race to the bottom" at this time. The US has every incentive to win this race, as it has racked up astronomic debts and obligations that are best dealt with by devaluing the currency.

An outright headline grabbing Sovereign Default by the US would certainly not be what one associates with Triple A ratings and might result in the country being "put in the doghouse" economically, not to mention getting the Tea Party mob stirred up, so it's far better to engage in a creeping default by simply creating more and more money. With most other countries aiming to follow suit it's small wonder that the outlook for gold and silver is now so rosy. It's kind of sad really for the naive, trusting overseas holders of US Treasuries. The deflation dragon, which had been lurking menacingly in the background earlier this year, is being suffocated in a sea of newly created cash. Hyperinflation? - "We'll deal with that problem when we come to it". When the United States is completely bankrupted the surplus holding Asian Tiger economies will ride to the rescue, buying up corporations and vast tracts of Real Estate at pennies on the dollar - and put America to work again - for new masters OUTSIDE the country, albeit at decidedly competitive rates of pay. See? - no big military required.
