Gold Price Long-Term Outlook Could Not Look Better / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2024

By: Clive_Maund

I haven't written much about gold in the recent past — since the failed breakout attempt early in December — simply because I haven't known what to make of it, and that indecisiveness has been reflected in the market itself, where we have seen gold stuck in a fairly narrow trading range, but now things are starting to become a lot clearer both fundamentally and technically, and as we will proceed to see, it's not a pretty picture.

On gold's latest 6-month chart, we can see the trading range that has built out since early December, and it is now becoming clear that the pattern that has formed is a Head-and-Shoulders top that also has the characteristics of a Double or Triple Top or a Symmetrical Triangle and right now it is on the point of backing off from the Right Shoulder peak of the pattern.

Gold Tipping Points That Investors Shouldn’t Miss / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2024

By: P_Radomski_CFA

The situation in gold and gold stocks is not stagnant. Something shifted. And the implications are not minor.

A Moment of Realization

In 1993, Aerosmith released the song called “Amazing”. I really enjoyed it when it came out and some of the lyrics stuck in my mind. When I was reviewing the charts to prepare today’s analysis, I recalled a part of that song. I wasn’t sure why, as it’s been sometime when I was listening to it.

In other words, silver is on sale.

Which Countries Have the Most Gold? / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2024

By: MoneyMetals

Which countries have the most gold?

Central banks around the world have aggressively added gold to their reserves over the last several years.

In 2022, central bank gold buying came in at 1,136 tons. It was the highest level of net purchases on record dating back to 1950, including since the suspension of dollar convertibility into gold in 1971. It was the 13th straight year of net central bank gold purchases.

Gold Builds Support at $2,000; What's Next? / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2024

By: MoneyMetals

Gold appears to have built solid support above $2,000 an ounce, but momentum to move higher in the short term has eased with uncertainty about the timing of Federal Reserve rate cuts.

But short-term sentiment aside, there are plenty of reasons to remain bullish on the yellow metal.

The Fed appeared to surrender to inflation at its December meeting. While the central bank held rates steady, it signaled three rate cuts for 2024 with another four cuts in 2025. That would lower rates to between 2 and 2.5 percent.

Bitcoin Is No Substitute for Gold / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2024

By: MoneyMetals

With Bitcoin making the news last week when the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) finally approved exchange traded funds, it’s a good time to review the topic again.

Bitcoin still offers the potential to serve as a form of honest money and to end-run the central bankers and politicians who have abused the fiat system so badly.

Hey, Remember About Gold Price’s Powerful Reversal? / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2023

By: P_Radomski_CFA

Gold price has been falling in today’s pre-market trading, but… Given the recent (HUGE!) weekly reversal, does it really surprise anyone?

The Historical Context

Well, it might surprise those that easily forget what happened in the previous weeks and focus on just the day-to-day price swings, but the truth is that the context provided by previous weeks, months, and years (and the performance of other markets!) matters a lot.

I previously wrote about some details coming from the broader perspective and some from the immediate-term analysis, and all that remains true. The recent weekly reversal was so huge that its impact on the next weeks really needs to be kept in mind at all times. It’s not likely that a daily price moves in any direction (especially that gold is lower today…) would invalidate the implications of the powerful weekly (!) reversal.

Silver Price Still Underperforming Gold / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2023

By: Submissions

While the yellow metal hit a new record high, the silver price remains below its post-pandemic peak. 

Recession Risks Loom Over Silver

While gold has dominated the headlines recently, silver and mining stocks have been material underperformers. And with the latter better barometers of investors’ enthusiasm, their relative weakness should concern the permabulls.

Gold Shines as the Economic Outlook Darkens / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2023

By: Submissions

While looser monetary policy may seem bullish in the short term, the medium-term ramifications could upend the yellow metal.

Recession Pessimism Ahead

The ‘bad news is good news’ trade continues to dominate the financial markets, as weaker economic data is perceived as bullish for risk assets. In a nutshell: if the Fed pivots and ends QT, all of investors’ problems will disappear. However, while the narrative has helped gold, an ominous economic backdrop should result in much lower prices in the months ahead.

A Golden Setup: Gold Price Trend Forecast Report / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2023

Hi,

Gold has long been seen as the refuge for investors who are concerned about economic downturns and inflation. And it's tempting to attribute the metal's price movements to factors like supply and demand, the dollar and interest rates.

Gold Stocks Winter Seasonal Rally / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2023

By: Zeal_LLC

Gold stocks have mostly ground lower to sideways since spring, leaving this contrarian sector really out of favor again.  Yet both the metal and its miners’ stocks are early on in their strongest seasonal rallies of the year.  From late October to late February, gold tends to enjoy excellent gains which the gold stocks leverage.  Given 2023’s great winter-rally setup, gold’s bullish seasonals should prove potent tailwinds ahead.

Seasonality is the tendency for prices to exhibit recurring patterns at certain times during the calendar year.  While seasonality doesn’t drive price action, it quantifies annually-repeating behaviors driven by sentiment, technicals, and fundamentals.  We humans are creatures of habit and herd, which naturally colors our trading decisions.  The calendar year’s passage affects the timing and intensity of buying and selling.

Gold stocks display strong seasonality because their price action amplifies that of their dominant primary driver, gold.  Gold’s seasonality generally isn’t driven by supply fluctuations like grown commodities see, as its mined supply remains relatively steady year-round.  Instead gold’s major seasonality is demand-driven, with global investment demand varying considerably depending on the time in the calendar year.

Copper: Cyclical, inflation sensitive and a material of positive economic progress.

Gold: Much more counter-cyclical, less inflation sensitive and a ‘liquidity haven’ material of long-term monetary value.

From war premiums to pivot hopes, silver sees sunny skies, as the international and domestic fundamental outlooks increase investors’ enthusiasm , as the international and domestic fundamental outlooks increase investors’ enthusiasm. However, the excitement is misguided, as silver often declines precipitously when recessions arrive. And with an economic downturn poised to bite in 2024, the white metal’s recent rally could be short-lived.

Gold Stocks Lagging / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2023

By: Zeal_LLC

The gold miners’ stocks are lagging gold’s strong young upleg, their gains falling behind.  Their striking performance gap is undermining gold-stock sentiment, leaving traders even warier of this sector.  While definitely vexing, this anomaly has only arisen over the past couple weeks.  Gold stocks’ precedent during past major gold uplegs implies this will unwind soon, with miners surging fast to catch up with their metal.

Gold has been blasting higher on balance for a month now, confirming a new major upleg is underway.  While the sparking catalyst was certainly geopolitical, gold’s upside since has been fueled by the normal sequential buying pattern driving all major uplegs.  That’s stage-one gold-futures short-covering buying, then larger stage-two gold-futures long buying, then ultimately vast stage-three investment buying returning.
