Gold & Silver Trading Alert: Dollarís Plunge and Its Implications


 -- Published: Wednesday, 7 May 2014 | Print  | Disqus 

Briefly: In our opinion speculative short positions (half) are justified from the risk/reward perspective for gold, silver, and mining stocks.

 

The most important thing that we saw in the markets yesterday was the major decline in the USD Index and the lack of proper response from gold, silver and mining stocks. Such a bullish factor should have made precious metals move much higher Ė but they didnítÖ Or did they? (Charts courtesy of http://stockcharts.com).

 

 

 

Gold didnít even rally on Tuesday. It declined by $1.80, which is odd and bearish given that the USD Index declined heavily. The decline itself wasnít significant, but we can point out that gold didnít move above the 50-day moving average. Basically, the Tuesday session was bearish on its own.

 

Since the currency markets were so important on Tuesday, letís take a look at both: the USD and Euro Indices.

 

 

Generally, we saw a breakout above the declining, long-term resistance line in the Euro Index. At this time, however, the breakout is unconfirmed, and without meaningful implications. Whatís more important, though, is how gold and silver reacted. They didnít. Gold and silver moved just a little higher and thatís highly visible underperformance in case of gold and silver. They are not even close to moving to their 2014 highs.

 

 

Meanwhile, the USD Index moved significantly lower. In this case ďsignificantlyĒ means that it moved to the 2013 low, and thatís a major support level. Gold and silver are not even close to their previous highs, and this means that they are underperforming the USD Index, and as soon as the latter rallies, the former will decline. Are there any sings suggesting that metals are about to move lower? Yes! The cyclical turning point for the USD Index suggests a move higher as the current move has definitely been down. This means that when things change, the precious metals market will get a bearish push and that it will then decline significantly. The outlook for the precious metals market, therefore, remains bearish.

 

Summing up, the way precious metals market reacted to the U.S. dollarís move lower (to the 2013 lows) is a bearish sign, and it confirms the bearish outlook that we outlined in previous alerts.

 

To summarize:

 

Trading capital (our opinion): Short positions (half) in: gold, silver, and mining stocks with the following stop-loss orders:

 

- Gold: $1,326

- Silver: $20.30

- GDX ETF: $25.20

 

Long-term capital (our opinion): No positions

Insurance capital (our opinion): Full position
