The Fed: Turning Gold Stocks Into Shooting Stars

The magnificent gold price rally has paused in the $1300 area for the past few weeks. Monday was COMEX option expiry day. 

With that now out of the way, gold is already staging more upside action!

A bullish upside channel breakout is in play and the consolidation was a flag-like pattern.

Also, note my key 14,7,7 series Stochastics oscillator at the bottom of the chart. A buy signal that occurs in the 40-60 area is a momentum-oriented signal, as opposed to a value-oriented signal that occurs in the 0-20 area.

These are technical signs of a tremendously healthy market.

The technical excellence being showcased on the daily gold chart is typical during rallies from the final right shoulder low in this type of enormous inverse H&S bull continuation pattern.

I’ve been almost alone amongst gold analysts in suggesting that the brief five-year decline from 2011-2016 was a typical “ho hum” correction in a bull market rather than a “vicious bear market”.

There’s no question that junior gold stocks experienced a bear market then, but they have experienced a myriad of bear markets since the gold bullion bull market began in 1999-2002.

Gold bullion bull and bear cycles last a long time. Twenty years is a short period of time for a gold bull or bear market, and many last a century or longer. 

I’ve predicted that this bull market will last a minimum of a hundred years, and more likely two hundred, and I stand by that prediction without wavering.

Most of the world has been in a deflationary cycle since 1980. That’s when global bond yields peaked. Gold stocks tend to crash repeatedly in a deflationary cycle along with stock markets.

In an inflationary cycle, gold stocks rally when stock markets rally… and they rally when stock markets fall. In August of 2018 I told investors to get ready for a sea change event; I predicted global stocks would crash in September-October, and gold stocks would surge higher as the stock markets crashed.
