A Bottom in Gold but not THE Bottom


 -- Published: Tuesday, 9 October 2018 | Print  | Disqus 

By Jordan Roy-Byrne CMT, MFTA

 

Gold has struggled to rebound despite an extreme oversold condition and extreme bearish sentiment. Nevertheless, conditions for Gold have not worsened in recent days. In fact, Gold as well as gold stocks appear to be basing for a potential rebound into the holiday season. While some gold bulls expect a major bottom, we arenít in that camp because the fundamentals are not in place yet to support a sustained advance.

 

The weekly chart below shows several positives for Gold.

 

First, last week Gold made a somewhat bullish candle after six weeks of testing $1180-$1190 support and failing to make new lows. With a daily close above $1215, a short-term bottom would be confirmed.

 

Secondly, note the rate of change indicator as well as the distance from the moving average. Both show Gold as the second most oversold in the past 2.5 years.

 

Finally, Goldís net speculative position is -2% of open interest, a 17-year low. Speculators are net short for the first time since 2001. This does not mandate the start of a major bull market but it does argue for Gold to rally soon.

Next we plot GDX along with its advance decline line and the GDX to Gold ratio.

 

One reason the rally has yet to materialize is the lack of strong breadth as shown by the advance decline line. It did form a positive divergence in September but it has yet to show any subsequent strength.

 

The GDX to Gold ratio is showing strength, which is a positive sign. Look for the rally to begin when the advance decline line strengthens.

So why isnít this a major bottom for the sector?

 

As weíve shared for months, the majority of bottoms in gold stocks (but not all) over the past 60 years coincide with the end of Fed rate hike cycles. Weíve also noted that every major cyclical move in Gold (ex 1985-1987) coincided roughly with some kind of bear market in stocks.

 

When the economy and stock market weaken, the Fed will end its hikes and Gold will begin to outperform stocks. If the Fed cuts rates then precious metals will begin a strong bull market.

 

While the Fed is near the end of its tightening, its not quite done yet and that means itís not Goldís time yet.

 

We are waiting for a potential rebound opportunity in precious metals while keeping our eye on the uranium sector, which according to our custom junior index, has broken out to a new 52 week high. To profit from a new uranium bull and prepare for an epic buying opportunity in junior gold and silver stocks in 2019, consider learning more about our premium service.
