The Gold Stocks Correction and What Lays Ahead / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2019

By: Gary_Tanashian

What’s In Play Now

It has been about 2 months since the gold stock sector, as represented by the HUI index, topped out. The ensuing correction has been a whipsaw affair of ups and downs, but smoothing that volatility out we find an ongoing correction in time and price that has not been too difficult to manage.

The pattern that some would call a “complex H&S” (TA-speak for a freakish pattern with too many shoulders) held a key lower high on the recent bounce to the daily chart’s SMA 50 (blue line). The neckline has been tested (and held) twice since it was created in September and the negative RSI divergence that began last summer has been guiding Huey downward.

Gold during Global Monetary Ease / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2019

By: Arkadiusz_Sieron

Another round of global monetary easing has just begun! More than 30 central banks around the world have cut interest rates this year so far. The Fed and the ECB are certainly among them. Should gold investors look forward to these policies playing out? Let’s find out how gold tends to behave during such an extraordinary period!

Ladies and Gentlemen! Another round of global monetary easing has just begun! More than 30 central banks around the world have cut interest rates this year amid trade wars and slowing economic growth and subdued inflation. The Fed cut the federal funds rate twice this year, each time by 25 basis point. In September, the ECB cut its deposit rate from minus 0.4 percent to minus 0.5 percent and reintroduced its quantitative easing, while the People’s Bank of China cut the reserve ratio by 50 basis point to 13 percent for large banks, the third time this year, releasing about $126 billion in liquidity to support the slowing economy. In August, the Reserve Bank of New Zealand surprised investors with 50-basis point interest rate cut. The central banks of Hong Kong, Thailand, Mexico, Turkey and Russia also have cut rates recently, while the Bank of Japan may join the club soon.

Signs Still Point To Lower Levels In Precious Metals / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2019

By: Avi_Gilburt

Originally published on Sat Oct 12 for our ElliottWaveTrader members: While we have been tracking the metals market for the next rally set-up, we have seen some signs that the market may attempt to begin that rally sooner rather than later. However, I have to be honest in noting that I am seeing more signs that lower levels may still be struck before we are ready for that rally.

So, as I have been saying for the last few weeks, I am going to still treat the market as likely needing more of a corrective downside structure before we begin the next rally phase – until the market is able to prove otherwise.

$100 Silver Has Come And Gone / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2019

By: Kelsey_Williams

In January 1980, the price of silver peaked at just under $50.00 per ounce. From its low in October 1971 at $1.27, silver had risen thirty-nine fold in little more than eight years.

There was talk about higher silver prices, as much as $100.00 per ounce and more. Yet, only a few months later, silver was down to $10.00 per ounce. That amounted to a decline of nearly eighty percent from its peak.

Silver bulls were not deterred, however. They continued to stress the “fundamentals” which would lead to higher silver prices, but their dreams turned into nightmares. The price of silver continued to fall.

Where Next for Oil After Its Double Reversal? / Commodities / Crude Oil

Crude oil bounced from its yesterday’s lows, and the oil bulls rebuffed another attempt to move lower earlier today. Does that mean that the upswing can continue now, or a cautious approach would win the day?

Gold, the Ultimate Safe Haven Asset. A Looming Nobel Prize? / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2019

By: Arkadiusz_Sieron

Yesterday, the Nobel prizes in economics were awarded. Unfortunately, gold has been omitted and got nothing. How unfair! But looking at the Dutch central bank press release, gold would have much higher chances if they were the ones granting the prizes and not the Swedish central bank!

2019 Nobel in Economics and Gold

Yesterday was a big day! At least for all those boring economists and similar bean-counters. The Nobel Prize in economics was awarded. Abhijit Banerjee, Esther Duflo, and Michael Kremer became 2019 laureates for their experimental approach to alleviating global poverty.

Precious metals moved strongly on Friday, and did so on significant volume. The reversals we have seen on Thursday got resolved with a heavy thud. Let’s dive into the many charts and perspectives and explore how well they support the upcoming move across the sector.

Let’s start this week with a bigger update on multiple gold charts. There are so many reasons due to which gold is likely to decline in the following months - we’ll start with last week’s closing day analysis.

Market Action Suggests Downside in Precious Metals / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2019

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

At present, there could be a number of positive developments for precious metals.

Last Friday, the US Dollar cracked lower and could be at risk of lower levels into year end.

Days earlier the Federal Reserve announced new “QE-like” measures just as they told us it was not really QE. 

In addition, the market is showing a nearly 68% chance of a rate cut later this month.

Gold Perspective is Everything / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2019

By: Rambus_Chartology

Perspective is everything when it comes to the markets. It is always most important to look at the long term charts first and then work your way back to the shorter timeframes. Long term charts also show where major support and resistance resides that can have a calming affect on ones emotions when the inevitable corrections take place.

Its been several months or so since we last looked at this 30 year quarterly chart for Gold that gives us very clear roadmap of how the price action may play out over the intermediate to longer term. Looking at the massive double bottom which launched Gold’s 2000’s bull market you can see there were three quarters of price action that took place on the breakout above the double bottom trendline with the final backtest occurring during the 3rd quarter of the breakout.

Consider Precious Metals for Insurance First, Profit Second... / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2019

By: MoneyMetals

Welcome to this week’s Market Wrap Podcast, I’m Mike Gleason.

Coming up MoneyMetals.com columnist and Senior Analyst at The Morgan Report David Smith joins me for another wonderful conversation on why he thinks the recent correction in metals is creating what may be the last great buying opportunity in the sector, and also why he believes those who do buy should be thinking insurance first and profit second. So be sure to stick around for my conversation with David Smith, coming up after this week’s market update.

As the Federal Reserve prepares more stimulus injections into the financial system, investors continue to flip back and forth from favoring safe haven assets one week to growth stories another. This week markets swung back toward growth, perhaps in hopes of progress on U.S.-China trade talks.

Global equity markets got a bounce mid-week. Industrial commodities including copper and platinum group metals also made gains. Bonds, meanwhile, sold off, and gold and silver struggled to hold significant near-term technical levels.

Fed Grows Concerned - Should Gold Investors Do the Same? / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2019

By: Arkadiusz_Sieron

The Fed released the minutes from its last meeting yesterday. What can we learn from the new light they shine on the U.S. monetary policy? How will it affect the gold market?

Minutes Show That FOMC Members Are More Worried Now

The minutes from the Sep FOMC meeting show that the Fed is more worried about the economy. The Committee members noted that downside risks had become more pronounced due to the increased trade conflicts, more intensified geopolitical uncertainty, and more fragile prospects for global and domestic economic growth:

Gold Gifts Traders With Another Rotation Below $1500 / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2019

By: Chris_Vermeulen

Positive expectations related to the US/China trades negotiations on October 10th prompted a moderately strong upside move in the US major indexes and the stock market. 

Additionally, the precious metals fell in correlation to the upside move in the US stock market and presented another opportunity for skilled technical traders to look for entries below $1500 in Gold and below $17.75 in Silver. 

We can’t stress the importance of this critical $1500 price level in Gold as a key level for all traders to watch.  It has continued to provide key support for Gold since the price rally that initiated in late April 2019.  We believe this level will act as a relatively strong price “floor” going forward and any price activity below $1500 could represent a very opportunistic entry area for skilled traders.

The Allure of Upswings in Silver Mining Stocks / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2019

By: P_Radomski_CFA

The entire precious metals sector rallied yesterday, but the upswing was particularly visible in case of silver and (especially) mining stocks. Both: silver, and miners moved to new October highs. Silver’s breakout was tiny, but miners rallied relatively significantly and that’s the part of the current long trade that’s particularly profitable. Of course, these profits are near to nothing compared to what’s likely ahead in case of the big short trade that we plan to profit on in the following months, but they add their part to the overall results. Please note that a small long position here also means staying temporarily out of the short position, which brings the likelihood of re-entering them at higher prices.

Let’s take a closer look at what happened.

Employment Data, Rate Cut Speculations and Gold / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2019

By: Arkadiusz_Sieron

If you look at the manufacturing data only, the relative strength of the jobs figures surprised. Another positive development were the upward revisions for August and July. The unemployment rate again dropped, this time to 3.5 percent. What will that mean for the Fed and gold?

September Payrolls Slow Down, but Unemployment Rate Drops Anyway

The U.S. created only 136,000 jobs in September, following an increase of 168,000 in August (after an upward revision). The nonfarm payrolls were short of the analysts’ forecast of 150,000. The gains were widespread, spearheaded by education and health services (+40,000) and professional and business services (+34,000). Manufacturing, which is in recession, and retail trade, which faces overcapacity, cut jobs.

What Makes this Gold Market Rally Different From All Others / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2019

By: Michael_J_Kosares

1.  It is led by institutions and funds, not private investors. Global quantitative easing created a huge and mobile pool of capital in constant need of a place to call home. As the need for a safe haven became apparent among the stewards of that capital, the demand for gold flourished. The consistent presence of funds and institutions as buyers in this rally, as represented by the growth in ETF stockpiles, is one of its hallmarks and represents one of the major differences between this gold rally and rallies of the past. Though private investors have been late to the game, the rapid development of the physical market for gold coins and bullion in the United Kingdom is testament to the fact that sentiment can change quickly.

Is Bill Gates Right On Energy Investing? / Commodities / Energy Resources

By: OilPrice_Com

Not long ago, Bill Gates offered some investment advice. That, in itself, constitutes news, but the content and the reactions make up a more interesting story.

Gates told the Financial Times, in essence, that investors who want to do something about climate change should stop making up lists of companies they do not want in their portfolios based on involvement in fossil fuel production or use. They should, instead, invest in disruptive technologies that will provide actual solutions to climate change.

USO United States Oil Fund Longer Term Cycles & Elliott Wave / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: ElliottWaveForecast

Firstly the USO instrument inception date was 4/10/2006. CL_F Crude Oil put in an all time high at 147.27 in July 2008. USO put in an all time high at 119.17 in July 2008 noted on the monthly chart. The decline from there into the February 2009 lows was in three swings. An a-b-c in red although it was a very steep pullback.

The bounce from the 2009 lows is a complex double three combination with a triangle “y”. This is w-x-y in red to end the blue wave (x). In either a bullish or bearish market this particular structure always makes a high or low in the initial wave “w”. Structures like this will be followed by a contracting or running triangle. In this case the structure ended in June 2014. The decline from those highs were very sharp again. However, this was in three swings again a-b-c in red to end the blue wave (y). This completed a three swing correction  (w)-(x)-(y) in blue from the July 2008 highs. That is labeled ((b)) in black at the February 2016 lows.

Gold in the Negative Real Interest Rates Environment / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2019

By: Arkadiusz_Sieron

Many believe that negative interest rates will never arrive to the United States. This can’t possibly happen here. The discussions of their theoretical benefits almost remind you of the not-in-my-backyard mentality. But this is not true – they are already present in America. Hard to believe it? Hiding in plain sight, let’s take it a step further and look at gold in the negative real interest rates environment.

Many people believe that negative interest rates are the ailment of Europe and Japan, and that they will never materialize in the United States. But this is not true. They are already present in America. Can’t believe it? Please take a look at the chart below.
