1. Technically, all sectors of the gold market look bullish.
2. Regardless of whether a daily chart, weekly chart, or a monthly chart is used, all technical lights are green.
3. Please click here now. Note the bullish position of my stokeillator (14,7,7 Stochastics series) on this daily gold chart.
4. On a historical basis, crossover buy signals on this key daily chart oscillator are typically followed by $50 -$150 gold price rallies.
5. Silver looks stronger than gold. Please click here now. A buy signal for the stokeillator is already in play, and silver is often a leading indicator for gold.
6. The daily charts for gold stocks also look great. Please click here now. A tentative uptrend is now in play on this daily GDX chart.
7. The weekly charts suggest that investors who are waiting for gold to bottom in July are at risk of missing an enormous rally that appears to already be underway. On that note, please click here now. The technical price patterns that tend to be the most reliable, tend to be what I call “eye candy”.
8. When a weekly chart pattern of decent size is also aesthetic, it gets my attention, and the bullish wedge that I’ve highlighted on this weekly gold chart is simply “drop dead gorgeous”.
9. What about the fundamentals? On the American front, inflation is the key driver of institutional liquidity flows into gold stocks, or out of them. ‘There is evidence that inflation is now "moving higher," said James Bullard, the president of the St. Louis Fed, on Monday. This is a significant shift in Bullard's outlook.’ –MarketWatch News, June 9, 2014.
10. In the late fall of 2013, I predicted the Fed would taper its QE program “all the way to zero” in 2014.
11. Some mainstream analysts made the same prediction, but their view was based on a US economic recovery.
12. In contrast, my view was that the Fed was anticipating a surprisingly sudden rise of inflation, and trying to prevent it with the taper.
13. That’s why I predicted the taper would be a bullish event for gold. I suggested the US stock market would not crash as the taper occurred, but it would lose momentum, creating a lot of disappointment for investors.
14. Bullard’s statements made yesterday, suggest to me that the Fed will continue to taper its QE program, and may even accelerate the rate of the taper, as more Fed governors and presidents voice concerns about inflation. That’s bullish for gold.
15. Please click here now. This ratio chart compares the daily price action of an Indian stock market ETF (INDA-NYSE) to a well-known US stock market ETF (DIA-NYSE).
16. The picture clearly speaks a thousand words.
17. As terribly as the US market is performing now against gold-hungry India, an acceleration in the rate of tapering could make a bad US stock market situation much worse.
18. Sadly, a number of gold stock investors appear to have sold their gold stocks at the December 2013 lows, and moved into the US stock market.
19. As “crash season” (August – October) approaches, the danger of a significant sell-off in Western stock markets is growing.
20. Many value-oriented money managers have already exited the US stock market, and an uptick in inflation would send many more managers to the exit door.
21. Investors who have managed to eke out gains of perhaps 2 – 3% in the US stock market in the past few months, are taking on tremendous risk now, to make marginal returns. I own Indian dividend-oriented stock, and I’m thrilled with the risk-reward profile of this vibrant market.
22. Importantly, as the stock market makes Indians wealthier, they tend to use that wealth to buy more gold at key “gold tonnage festivals” like Diwali.
23. Rising inflation is not just a US problem. Please click here now. Chinese consumer inflation has also started to rise, and it could rise more, as the nation tries to transition from exports to consumption.
24. With precious metals “eye candy” charts in play and inflation acting as a friend to gold, it could be a truly golden summer for the Western gold community!
