Gold, Silver, USD: Where to Next?

The precious metals market is very clearly in a secular uptrend and prices look poised for further significant upside into the end of the year. My technical view is that in the short term prices have gotten a bit extended and that a pull back/consolidation is due (and healthy) to build the base for the next leg higher.

Gold

As I stated in my last post from July 8th: “I have always viewed the $1800 price level in gold as more significant than the $1910 blow-off top in 2011. The price level at $1800 was the multi-month, triple tested resistance level that precipitated the six-year base. If price holds, the breakout above this level is secular and very bullish.”

This past week December gold futures eclipsed $2000 and the front month August contract peaked just shy of the 127.2 Fibonacci extension. When this level breaks and holds, my text target is $2260 at the 161.8 Fibonacci extension. However, with the 14-period RSI in extreme overbought conditions, eclipsing 86 for the highest on record, and with bullish sentiment frothing, the timing seems ripe for a pullback (even if just a modest one).

GOLD MONTHLY - JULY

For a more granular view, the August front month contract has been trading in this channel since February, and is also now approaching the upper bound. A logical place for a reentry to add to longs would be a small consolidation to rising support.

GOLD 4HR CHART

Silver

The level to watch in silver is $26 (the July high was 26.27). The $26 level was triple tested support in 2011-2012 and is now acting as resistance. This is also the 38.2 Fibonacci retracement from the peak in 2011 to the the 2015 low. The risk/reward favors a long position above $26 or on a retest of the $19.80 breakout level. Price could get choppy in between as the market digests the recent moves. When price breaks out above $26, the next key targets are $33 and $35 (the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement).

SILVER WEEKLY JULY

US Dollar

The US Dollar supports the metals thesis, acting as the inverse of metals price action. Big picture, in July, the US Dollar broke down from its 12-year rising channel (and diamond top pattern) and all technical indications look bearish.

DOLLAR MONTHLY-JULY

However, in the short term, price is likely to push back to at least 94.60 as the dollar works off extreme oversold conditions and historic bearishness to retest prior support.

USD 4HR

We are looking for further metals strength and dollar weakness as we head into the fall. As always, we welcome any feedback and comments.

Gold and Silver Coiling for a Move

It has been over a month since my last entry on the markets, and aside from a few Twitter posts, most of my analysis has been confined to my desktop. The impact of the coronavirus on the retail precious metals market has been historic, with dueling supply and demand shocks, and as president of Texas Precious Metals, my time has been consumed by day-to-day operations. I finally have a bit of a respite this afternoon to share a few thoughts on the metals markets.

Liquidity Crisis Accelerates and Hits Metals Hard

The sell off in markets accelerated by coronavirus and the global reaction to curtail the pandemic has left no prisoners, as nearly all asset classes are selling off in a flight to liquidity. As large institutions face margin calls, they are forced to close positions or raise cash by selling anything and everything that is liquid. Gold and silver – the “safe haven” assets – are no exception. I would remind readers that in the global financial crisis gold fell 27% and silver fell 55% in nominal terms. Gold outperformed equities on a relative basis, but silver actually underperformed.

Market Crash of 2020: Where Do We Go From Here?

Fear or Greed?

The last two weeks have been extremely volatile in the markets, and for the first time in a long time my friends and family have called to inquire about “what is going on in the markets?” Coronavirus contagion fears, coinciding with all-time highs in the markets, has been the scapegoat for a rapid, deflationary decline across nearly all markets except bonds, which resiliently continued to fetch a bid. Even the US Dollar, traditionally a safe haven in deflationary swoons, declined.

$GC Mid-month Gold Update

Trend Remains Strong and Intact

Gold-Feb2

Price action in gold has traded in a narrow window over the past few weeks, winding into a tight coil as it begins to consolidate for another leg higher. The wave counts suggests that gold is in the early stages of a Wave 5. In the chart above, the key near term level to watch to the downside is $1540. This level served as resistance in September 2019, and has been support for the last month. This level also roughly coincides with rising support from the uptrend channel that commenced in August 2018.

Gold Breaks Out; Silver Gearing Up for a Move

Gold Monthly

Gold bugs should be pleased with the monthly performance of gold in January.

[VIDEO] Silver Update – Silver Testing Rising Channel Support – Jan 29, 2020

Silver Testing Key Level

In this video I take a look at the prevailing long and short term trends in the price of silver. While the decade-long trend remains down, the one year trend remains up. Yesterday’s .60 drop in price now has silver testing rising channel support from the bottom in May 2019. Bulls will want to see this price hold for another leg higher. If price breaks down from this rising support, the key levels are 16.90 and 16.20. Bulls especially need silver to remain above 16.20 for the longer term bullish picture to remain in play.

As always, I hope this is helpful, and I welcome any feedback or questions.
