Gold Price Exclusive Update

Technical Analyst & Editor
June 19, 2021

Our proprietary cycle indicator is now DOWN.

To public readers of our updates, our cycle indicator is one of the most effective timing tool for traders and investors. It is not perfect, because periodically the market can be more volatile and can result in short term whipsaws. But overall, the cycle indicator provides us with a clear direction how we should be speculating.

Investors

During a major buy signal, investors can accumulate positions by cost averaging at cycle bottoms, ideally when prices are at or near the daily 200ema.

During a major sell signal, investors should be hedged or in cash.

Traders

Simply cost average in at cycle bottoms when prices are at or near the daily 200ema; and cost average out at cycle tops when prices are above the daily 50ema.

Gold sector remains on long term BUY at the end of May.

GLD is on short term sell signal.

GDX is on short term sell signal.

XGD.to is on short term sell signal.

GDXJ is on short term sell signal.

Analysis

Our ratio is on sell signal.

The sharp rally in USD this week has resulted in a double bottom.

A strong dollar is not friendly to the metals.

Gold broke support this week, confirming the $1900 level as a “failed recovery top”.

When resistance is established, prices look for support.

Major support for gold is now at the weekly 200ema, just below $1600.

Similar to gold, $HUI also broke support, with next support at the 200ema, around 240

Its been a while since we looked at this long term chart between gold and USD.

I’ve been studying this chart for over 20 years.

  • In 2001, gold made a double bottom which resulted in a USD top. That was my first taste of a gold bull market and what a ride it was. A few of you oldtimers may fondly recall buying gold stocks with me such as Glamis, Bema…..
  • In 2011, USD made a double bottom, and we were mostly out of the gold sector for a few years.
  • USD made a double top in early 2020, and that sparked my enthusiasm for another potential gold bull market for years to come. However…
  • With the sharp rally in USD this week, a double bottom is in place, and that may have confirmed a gold peak.
  • In order to invalidate this current prognosis, USD must break the double bottom for gold to resume the bull market, and my renewed commitment for the gold sector the long term.

Summary

Long term – on major BUY signal.

Short term – on sell signals.

Gold sector cycle is now down.

We closed out all of our positions this week with good profits.
