Metals Beginning Another Rally Attempt?

Recently, the US stock market rallied to new all-time highs which prompted an almost immediate celebration. A day later, the US stock markets reacted by setting up multiple top rotation patterns. The next day, a moderate price rally set up after the US Fed decreased rates by 25 basis points. The next day, the markets sold off dramatically with heavier volume – prompting the metals and the VIX to rally.

We’ve been warning for weeks that the US markets were setting up into a Pennant/Flag formation within a tightening range biased to the upside. See our index trend analysis signals here. We believe the move in precious metals today may be indicative of a breakout/breakdown move in the markets – near the apex of the pennant formation on the Gold chart, below.

We believe this Pennant/flag formation on the Daily Gold chart aligns with the longer-term pennant formation that setup in the US stock market. We believe the breakout move in metals may be a very strong indication that the US stock market may begin a reversion price move, a deeper downside price rotation, that may result in a spike in the VIX and metals while the US, and potentially global, stock markets react to weakness that may drive a price correction over the next few weeks. This type of price correction maybe just like the correction that happened near the end of 2018.

As we’ve been warning over the past few weeks, we believe the US and global stock markets are setting up in a very fragile price pattern. One that may result in a moderately deep price correction that may surprise investors over the next few weeks and months. Be prepared for some very large volatility and an increased risk of a potentially very deep price correction over the next 60 to 120+ days.

If gold continues as we suspect, a rally to the $1600 to $1650 level may be seen very quickly. Ultimately, this rally may continue to levels above $1700 to $1750 before the end of 2019. The speed of the rally in metals will relate to the amount of fear generated by any weakness in the global markets and the speed and severity of potential price collapse.
