The Metals’ Mixed Messages

February 5, 2017

A great week for stocks. However, precious metals continue to show some mixed strength and weakness, but the week ahead should tell us if a low is in fact materialized, or if more basing is needed.

Gold gained 2.73% as we moved through the first week of Chinese New Year. Not bad action at all but gold still can’t get and stay above $1,220. A move above said level would be positive but I see the more likely scenario to play out being a chop between $1,160 and $1,220 until May or so. Time will tell.

Silver continues to try to lead gold higher as it gained 2% this past week. Seeing silver hold above $17.25 is positive. To be sure I also need to see gold above its recent level high $1,220, which will prompt me to vocalize the start of a new up-trending metals market.

Let’s see if gold can get in gear in the week to come…or if silver fails this attempt to trend.

Platinum rose 2.38% last week…but still cannot move above the resistance of $1,015 where the 200-day moving average coincidentally sits.

Funny how select moving averages are such magnets, or is it!

Palladium gained 1.41% this past week…but is struggling to move above its personal level of defiance, i.e. $770. Palladium isn’t anything special here -- and will probably follow the pace set by gold and silver if they can ever decide which way they will travel.
