Gold Stocks Versus The Dow

Graceland Updates

By Stewart Thomson


1.   Gold is the ultimate safe haven, and when global financial risks rise or fall substantially, enormous institutional liquidity can flow into gold, or out of it. 

2.   Please click here now.  Double-click to enlarge.  That’s the hourly bars gold chart.  In just a few weeks, gold surged from about $1200 to $1320, on Brexit fears.

3.   All of that upside gain can easily be unwound if the “stay” vote wins.  The “unwind” would only be a short term event, partly because more key EU member states may soon launch their own referendums.

4.   Most retail investors tend to invest excessive amounts of capital in their trade ideas.  That leads to dramatic swings in fear and greed that few investors are capable of withstanding. 

5.   With gold, a drop from $1300 to $1200 and a subsequent rally to $1400 should not be something that creates significant fear or greed for any investor in the Western gold community. 

6.   Heightened volatility is to be expected around events like the Brexit, especially as the US business cycle peaks and turns down.

7.   Please click here now.  George Soros correctly argues that there could be substantial financial pain with a “Leave” victory in the Brexit vote.  He fails to mention the word “freedom”. 

8.   National elections and referendums are no longer about citizen freedom.  They are only about economics.  If a slave gets a bit more money, the slave is supposed to rejoice.  Unfortunately, that doesn’t free the slave.

9.   Please click here now. In my professional opinion, India has the most corrupt government of all major industrializing nations. 

10.        To enrich themselves, Indian politicians make extensive use of bribery, theft, and extortion.  In contrast, I view India’s central bank chief, Raghuram Rajan, as… the Elliot Ness of India. 

11.        His unbreakable integrity has been a major thorn in the side of the government despots.  Influential Barron’s writers appear to believe his sudden official resignation over the weekend was a “hatchet job”.

12.        Consistently, Indian citizens are the world’s largest gold buyer class, and they also own the largest amount of gold.  That’s because they understand better than everyone else that government power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.  It’s that simple.

13.        Will Western citizens ever learn to vote for gold before voting for their favourite government politician?  Unfortunately, I think it will take another thousand years of dealing with corruption in government, before most Western citizens begin voting to make gold bullion their personal Prime Minister and President.

14.        In the big picture, the loss of Rajan in India is probably very positive for the price of gold.  With a “yes man” installed as the head of the central bank, India will quickly join the rest of the world’s central banks in chopping rates and printing money.  That will inspire Indian citizens to buy gold very aggressively.

15.        Please click here now.  Double-click to enlarge this weekly bars chart of the Dow.  I’ve highlighted the end of the year timeframe for 2013, 2014, and 2015. 

16.        Investors who sold gold stocks aggressively at those times to get in on the upside action that had earlier occurred in the Dow are already disappointed.  The Dow has essentially gone nowhere for three years.  Value players have left the stock market building as the business cycle wanes, and they are not coming back.  The Dow is probably running on fumes. 

17.        Please click here now. Double-click to enlarge this fabulous GDX weekly chart.  I adamantly told the entire Western gold community during “tax loss season” of each the past three years that gold stocks were making generational lows, and those tax-loss seasons (December) were critical buying areas.

18.        Without even mentioning the fantastic price action from the 2015 low, the simple fact is that GDX is up solidly, from both the 2014 and 2013 lows!

19.        Investors who use technical trading systems, COT reports, and other market timing theories to place large bets for or against gold will almost never beat the diligent value-oriented investor, and if they do, their victory will be very short-lived.  The bottom line:

20.        While the Dow has essentially gone nowhere, GDX is up about 20% from its 2013 low, 35% from its 2014 low, and 100% from its 2015 low!

21.        Investors who want to build serious wealth that is retained must approach the market with intestinal fortitude and the search for value as their main weapons.  Gold stocks offered stupdendous value in 2013, 2014, 2015, and now in 2016, but the key question is, how many investors had the amount of intestinal fortitude required to take buy-side action?   

22.        Please click here now.  Double-click to enlarge this important quarterly bars chart of the XAU gold stocks index versus gold.  It’s arguably the most important chart in the world, or certainly one of them. 

23.        The twenty-year bear market in gold stocks against gold was caused by a “perfect deflationary storm”.  That storm itself was caused by a bear market in money velocity and bank loan profit margins.  The storm is ending.  Inflation is beginning to creep higher, and doing so at a time when the US business cycle is peaking. 

24.        Aggressive rate hikes (and arguably even one more) will crush the US stock market and incentivize commercial banks to pull money out of government bonds at the Fed.  Rate cuts now won’t help the economy, so the next step is likely some kind of government infrastructure spending programs.  That’s inflationary, and it’s going to fuel more institutional buying of gold stocks.  Gold stocks are beginning what will probably become the biggest upside price movement in the history of financial markets!
