Gold Price Forecast: Gold Targets $1700 In September

gold analysis

The spike-high we forecasted in gold last week appears complete. Prices collapsed to $1874.20 by Wednesday before finally rebounding. We think gold could retest support near $1700 by late September, which should produce the next great buying opportunity. 

Gold and precious metal prices are extremely cyclical. Roughly every 6-months prices form an intermediate cycle low - the last low arrived in March. The current decline is just starting and may last another 4 to 6-weeks. Our preferred target window (chart below) supports a bottom in late September or early October. 

Gold is in a powerful bull market - we do not recommend shorting or trying to trade every swing. Today's markets are more volatile (news-driven) than ever - one black swan event could wipe out your trading account.

After peaking at 450, our Gold Cycle Indicator (currently 373) is declining – suggesting metals and miners have started their intermediate-degree corrections.

Noticing the shift in volatility, we switched to an accumulation strategy adding to our long-term holdings only when the Gold Cycle Indicator falls below 100. This strategy dramatically reduces stress and trading anxiety. 

Gold September Target

The price of gold is bouncing after Tuesday's collapse. The descent into a 6-month low is rarely straightforward - there are several bumps and bounces along the way. The key is to avoid emotional decision making. The Premium Metals Portfolio will wait for the gold cycle indicator to drop below 100 before adding long-term holdings. 

GDX Chart

Miners bounced slightly, and we could see a rebound to fill Tuesday's gap at $42.50. Last week's sell signal remains intact as long as prices don't close above $42.50. Our primary is $31.00, with the potential of reaching $27.00. 

We continue to like miners and platinum going forward as we believe they will continue to play catch-up to gold.
