Pullback in Gold Stocks or a New, Powerful Decline?

CFA, Editor & Founder @ Sunshine Profits

Let’s take a closer look at the charts to find out.

What Happens Before Bigger Declines?

The clue to answering the above question lies in the final part of the rally that we saw last week.

That’s when miners clearly underperformed gold and when silver outperformed. Junior miners (upper part of the chart) moved just slightly above their initial high, gold moved somewhat higher, and silver pretty much doubled the size of its initial rally.

That’s what tends to happen right before bigger declines – and the emphasis really does go on “bigger”.

What has happened so far? Well, not that much. Even though yesterday’s rally was huge on a stand-alone basis, it only took miners back to their previous lows in intraday terms (we did see a move to new yearly lows in terms of the closing prices, though), and gold is not at its new lows yet.

The silver price plunged – quite decisively so.

Interestingly, the latter happened only a bit over a month after the moment when silver tried to move above the $25 level. On a side note, we saw the same indication in the first days of February – miners were underperforming gold, and based, i.a., on it, I warned that a decline was coming.

Now, the white metal has declined below its 61.8% Fibonacci retracement level, which is a great indication that this decline is not just a correction but actually a new, big move lower.

Let’s keep in mind that miners and silver are linked not only to gold and the USD Index but also to the stock market.

Mining stocks, because they are, well, stocks.

Silver due to its multiple industrial uses.

What Are Stocks Likely to Do Next?

Stocks formed a clear reversal on Monday, so they were likely to decline on Tuesday, and that’s exactly what happened.

However, given the analogy to the previous decline that started in August 2022, it seems that the rally has only begun.

The recent bump in the RSI indicator and a top in it that I marked with a blue arrow suggest that the current situation is similar to what we saw in the early part of the slide.

So, silver and miners have been so weak that they managed to decline even without the stock markets’ help. What’s likely to happen when they finally do get this bearish “help”?

That’s right, you guessed it – miners and silver are likely to decline in a truly profound manner. Just as I warned you at the beginning of February, I’m warning you right now – in my opinion, another big move lower is already underway. And the profits of those who are positioned to gain from the upcoming decline (like my subscribers, for example) are likely to increase much more than they increased based on yesterday’s slide.

Naturally, the above is up-to-date at the moment when it was written. When the outlook changes, I’ll provide an update. If you’d like to read it as well as other exclusive gold and silver price analyses, I encourage you to sign up for our free gold newsletter.
