The only better-looking chart than gold right now is… silver!

Years ago, I coined the term “flagification” to describe the formation of multiple flags on the gold and silver charts.

This technical action is rare and outrageously bullish. 

Because it happens with technical indicators overbought and the commercial traders adding seemingly overwhelming short positions on the COMEX, even the best top callers need to use caution in this type of market.

I’ve described the current events in America as resembling a hybrid of what occurred in 1929, 1937, 1968, and 2008. 

Stagflation, tariff taxes, US-China empire transition, populist worship of debt-obsessed politicians, and a peaking global business cycle all appear to be in play… at the same time.

Flagification may soon be in play, but not in a good way! A huge bear flag has already formed on this short-term hourly chart. 

I always recommend that US stock market investors go to the sidelines at the start of August with some of their capital. As the business cycle matures, the danger of a crash in September or October increases exponentially.

The weekly chart action of the Dow is ominous, while gold and silver accelerate their upside action. 

What’s happening now in both gold and the stock market is reminiscent of the late 1960s when American stagflation began.

The gold stocks versus gold monthly ratio chart probably is the best illustration of the emerging stagflation theme.

In 2007 gold stocks were at a high price in relation to gold. Now they are very low and basing.

Mainstream analysts have suggested different interest rates that would represent “normalization”.Likewise, some gold stock analysts have suggested that GDX would be “normalized” at a price of about $40.
