Last week we wrote that Gold was broken but noted the oversold condition in the precious metals sector as well as the relative strength in the gold stocks. At one moment last week, the gold stocks were trading above where they were in mid-November when Gold was trading some $60/oz higher. In other words, Gold plummeted $60/oz and made a new low yet the gold stocks did not. It took a bit longer than we expected but Gold and gold mining stocks may have started their rebound at the end of last week.
Gold formed a bit of a bullish hammer last week as it managed to close the week well off its low of $1162/oz. Note that Gold managed to rebound from support around $1155-$1160/oz, which is the strongest support between $1080 to $1180/oz. Gold was already oversold when it broke below $1200/oz. The likelihood of a rebound was increasing after Gold lost $1180/oz. Going forward, the rebound targets are $1210/oz, $1230/oz and $1250/oz. We think Gold will test its 40-month moving average at $1230/oz.
Gold Weekly Candles
As we noted, the gold stocks have held up very well in recent weeks considering Gold’s continued decline. Most of the recent daily candles signal accumulation and Friday’s gain could be the start of a sustained rebound. The strongest confluence of resistance is at GDX $23.50 and GDXJ $39. These are the conservative, realistic targets. There is also a chance miners could rally a bit farther towards very strong resistance near GDX $26 and GDXJ $42.50.
