world gold forecast

It looks like gold has begun the final surge into its 6-month cycle peak. Prices should reach $1700 in March. From there, our work supports a multi-week correction, possibly severe, into May. 

It took some time, but I think the market finally realizes the mounting implications of the coronavirus. On Monday, Apple announced they would not meet quarterly guidance due to lower production and demand from China. That captured investor’s attention and triggered a move into gold.

In my Thursday report to subscribers, I wrote, “I do see a correlation in gold that could imply an upward breakout within the next 1 to 3 trading days. A daily close above $1600 would reinforce this view.” It’s been two trading days, and it looks like gold will finish above that level, implying an immediate breakout.

Gold Daily Chart

The mid-cycle consolidation is complete, and gold is beginning the final surge into a 6-month cycle peak. Our preferred target is $1700. Once prices peak, our work supports a multi-week correction, possibly severe, into May. 

Silver Daily Chart

I was expecting a much stronger run out of silver, but the coronavirus likely thwarted that. Nevertheless, silver likes to finish strong, and I still see the potential for a sharp rally to $20.00 in March. 

A rally above $20.00 in silver would advance the series of higher highs and higher lows and confirm a bull market. Longer-term, I expect silver to go much higher.
