Bull Flag Breakout For Gold Stocks

As US markets re-open after the holiday, the world’s “queen of assets” continues her glorious ascent to higher prices.

Gold is well on its way to becoming a mainstream asset like stocks and bonds. The reason for that is the “citizen wealth effect” created by the relentless rise of China and India.  These gold-oriented nations are well on their way to becoming the most gargantuan economic empires in the history of the world.

It’s simple mathematics:  There are eight Chindians for every American, and about half of the Chindians are under the age of 35. It’s an unstoppable force that I refer to as, “The Gold Bull Era”. In the West, gold has been traditionally bought only when major stock, bond, currency, and real estate markets get into trouble. In contrast, Chindian citizens view gold as the “ultimate asset”, meaning they buy it in both good times and bad. 

This view is beginning to gain acceptance amongst Western analysts and money managers and I’m predicting it will continue to do so for many decades. Gold’s role as an ultimate asset was showcased in the September-December period when it rose while US stock markets tumbled.  Most gold bugs were stunned by the incredible price action, and even more stunned as the GDX gold stocks ETF soared too!

Now, gold is rallying while US stock markets rise, and most analysts are again somewhat shocked as their attempted top calls for gold fail repeatedly. This type of “win-win” price action is unique to gold and I’ll boldly state that it is essentially here to stay!

On this daily chart, gold looks like a freight train that cannot be stopped.

From a big picture technical perspective, this type of daily chart action is expected and normal. To understand why I say that, please look at this chart below. What I consider to be the greatest weekly chart in the history of markets.
