Junior Gold Stocks: Half Year Report Card

 -- Published: Tuesday, 1 July 2014 | Print  | Disqus 

Graceland Updates

By Stewart Thomson


1.    Has gold topped out, or is it beginning a new leg higher?

2.    Please click here now.  Thatís the hourly bars gold chart.  A persuasive argument can be made that gold staged an upside breakout last night.

3.    The range of $1305 - $1326 was decisively penetrated to the upside, and gold traded as high as $1335.

4.    In 2013, I asked my subscribers, who I refer to as ďgolden marinesĒ, to focus their buying in the $1228 area, with an emphasis on gold stock.  Gold is now about $100 above that key buying area.

5.    Please click here now.  Iíve highlighted a bull flag pattern breakout on this daily gold chart.  Even if the flag pattern fails, and the 14,7,7 Stochastics oscillator suggests it could, that failure would likely create a powerful right shoulder, completing a bullish inverse head and shoulders bottom pattern.

6.    I donít think itís that important for investors to try to guess whether gold is topping out in the short term, or beginning a new leg higher.  I would argue that an obsession with calling minor trend tops and bottoms can destroy wealth, rather than build it.

7.    Itís much more important to stay focused on the very bullish big picture.  On that note, please click here now.  This weekly chart shows the 14,3,3 series Stochastics oscillator in rising mode, and a giant inverse head and shoulders bottom pattern dominates the chart.

8.    Indiaís new government budget is scheduled to be announced on July 10.  Thatís a key date for any citizen in the world gold community.  Many gold dealers believe Prime Minister Modi will announce a significant reduction in gold import duties and regulations.

9.    I agree.  The current gold price rally could take a needed breather as the budget is announced.  It would be a classic case of ďBuy the rumour, and sell the news.Ē

10. Regardless, itís critical that these restrictions and duties get reduced, and I believe the very bullish picture presented by the weekly and monthly gold charts suggests that Modi is set to release an enormous amount of pent-up Indian demand, over the next six months.

11. Also, the US Employment Situation (jobs) report is scheduled for release on Thursday, and Janet Yellen makes a key speech in Washington on Wednesday.  

12. Gold often sells off as the jobs report approaches, but that hasnít happened this time, adding to the overall bullish sentiment in the air.

13. Please click here now.  This monthly gold chart looks spectacular.  Note the RSI oscillator at the top of the chart.  It is making new highs, and thatís bullish.

14. The 14,3,3 series Stochastics oscillator has burst to the upside, from a bullish inverse head and shoulders bottom pattern.

15. The 8,16,9 MACD indicator is now flashing a key buy signal.  Note how rare these signals are, and the size of the price movements that tend to follow them.

16. The key 5,15 moving average series is also on the cusp of a ďking kongĒ sized buy signal.

17. What about geopolitical price drivers?  Well, please click here now.  While short term oscillators may be overbought, the longer term charts suggest that ďteam top callerĒ could sustain a serious beating, particularly if events in Iraq and the Ukraine worsen.  On that note, please click here now.

18. Looking at the key geopolitical gold price drivers, itís apparent that the upcoming holiday week-end may not be a very pleasant one for the gold bears.

19. I want to take a moment to discuss the Bitcoin phenomenon.  Please click here now.  This daily bitcoin chart is very bullish. 

20. Some analysts have tried to compare bitcoin to gold.  I think thatís a mistake, but there is a role for bitcoin to play, as a global reserve currency.  Hereís why: Central banks generally refuse to be audited, and they have treated gold, generally speaking, with a fair amount of disrespect. 

21. Gold is the ultimate form of money, and Iím not sure that central banks deserve to hold any of it.  The ultimate form of money should be in the hands of citizens, not governments.  Part of the reason I own bitcoin is because I believe central banks will ultimately embrace it as part of a global reserve currency.

22. Regardless, bitcoin is a minor holding for me, and I view it like a junior stock.  Itís a speculation.  From a perspective of risk, it shouldnít be compared to gold, any more than a junior gold stock should be compared to gold.

23.  The big picture for speculative junior gold stocks is very bright, because inflation is beginning to rise in the West, and India is probably only ten days away from officially ushering in a gold jewellery ďbull eraĒ!  Please click here now.  This monthly GDXJ chart is important.  The 5,15 moving average series is on the verge of what could be a ďgenerationalĒ buy signal.   

24. Yesterdayís close was critical, because it was not just the end of the month, but the end of the quarter.  Junior gold stocks staged a spectacular ending to the first half of the year, on massive volume.  This chart suggests the second half of 2014 will be even better!
