Gold Stocks Remain in Downtrend but Uranium Stocks on the Cusp of New Bull Market

    Gold stocks failed to breakout in the spring and then brokedown to multi-year lows by September. As autumn beckons, the precious metals sector at large is very oversold and could be starting a rebound. However, the fundamentals are not yet in place for a new bull market. They will be when the Fed … Continue reading “Gold Stocks Remain in Downtrend but Uranium Stocks on the Cusp of New Bull Market”


Gold Miners Setting Up for Big Rally

    The recent rally attempt of the gold stocks fizzled out as the December 2016 lows failed to hold. Now the miners are making new lows.

These are the conditions needed to engender … Continue reading “Gold Miners Setting Up for Big Rally”


Upside Targets for Gold, Gold Stocks & Silver

  After a vicious selloff precious metals have stabilized. Its not a surprise given the breadth and sentiment extremes we noted and had predicted earlier. Although recent gains have met some resistance, the immediate path of least resistance should be higher.

Gold Stocks Crash! Now What?

  Last week GDX and GDXJ were down almost 12% at their lows on Thursday. Since then, they’ve recovered but only a tiny fraction of recent losses.

Gold Stocks are Not Too Oversold Yet

Gold Stocks Testing Last Ditch Support

    Although precious metals have not rebounded too strongly yet, the long awaited summer rally could be underway (at least in Gold). Gold is oversold and its sentiment is overly bearish.

Signal vs. Noise in the Gold Market

    In his book Nobody Knows Anything, my friend Bob Moriarty wrote about the difference between signal and noise. Unfortunately, much of the information in the gold space or what passes for such is really noise. Conspiracy theories around manipulation, price suppression and China are all too popular while important factors like real interest … Continue reading “Signal vs. Noise in the Gold Market”


Is the Relative Strength in Gold Miners to Gold Significant?

    It has been a tough spring and summer for precious metals. Gold failed to breakout when it had the chance and it closed the second quarter in ominous and weak fashion. It was the lowest monthly close in more than a year. Silver has performed better but only because it has not declined … Continue reading “Is the Relative Strength in Gold Miners to Gold Significant?”


Bearish Sentiment Can Only Take Gold so Far

    Despite its lack of bullish fundamentals and the poor price action, Gold is now technically oversold and has reached strong support with sentiment approaching potentially extreme levels. The conditions are in place for a rally. That being said, bearish sentiment by itself is not enough to push Gold beyond a relief rally. While … Continue reading “Bearish Sentiment Can Only Take Gold so Far”
