Gold & The Business Cycle

1.      A lot of Americans getting a myriad of government entitlements thought that President Trump would recreate the 1950s for them.  

2.      If Trump had eliminated the PIT (personal income tax), capital gains tax, and corporate income tax, Iíve estimated that around $100 trillion in capital would have surged into America.

3.      That would have created a super-sized version of what Switzerland achieved at its peak.

4.      Sadly, Trump and his team didnít do that, mainly because they are giving the citizens what they want; bigger government, more debt, and more storytelling.

5.      To understand what is likely coming next for America, please click here now. Mike Wilson does a near-perfect job of outlining what I believe is in store for H2 of 2019.

6.      Yesterday, Goldman Sachsí chief economist was quite adamant that the consensus prediction of three rate cuts in the second half of this year would go awry, and the Fed will not cut at all.

7.      The risks are clearly rising for US stock market investors. 

8.     My biggest concern is that many Americans sold a lot of their gold stocks into the lows and are now aggressively buying the US stock market.  The size of their buying is quite large.

9.      Unfortunately, their buying appears to be based mostly on Trumpís frequent ďLetís make America great!Ē pump-up tweets,  rather than prudent study of the business cycle.

10.  The US business cycle is very late stage now, and thatís when investors must reduce stock market exposure and increase exposure to gold!

11.   Having said that, please click here now.  Double-click to enlarge this TQQQ triple-leveraged Nasdaq ETF chart.

12.  Almost 80% of mainstream stock market analysts predict the Fed will cut in July.  If they are correct, the stock market will likely soar to new highs.  If they are wrong, the market likely begins crashing at the start of August.

13.  A lot of stocks in the Dow Jones Industrials index are already at new highs, and thatís usually a sign that the indexes will make new highs too, regardless of whether a crash follows soon after that.  I think new highs for the indexes occurs ahead of the July Fed meeting.  That meeting also likely marks the final bull market peak for the US stock market.

14.  At my swing trade service, we are long the stock market via TQQQ.  My system is mechanical; I am always either long or short the Nasdaq via TQQQ/SQQQ.  Iím also  always long or short gold stocks via NUGT/DUST.

15.  Even if the Fed doesnít cut rates at the July 31 meeting, the market has about six weeks to keep rallying before getting disappointed by the Fedís decision.

16.  Also, I would not rule out a rate cut, because the Fed has tended to support the stock market whenever it gets into trouble.  The Fed has also tended to support the US government with lower rates when the government wants to borrow a lot of money.

17.   What about gold?  Well, I suggested that investors should brace themselves for a pullback from $1350.  Thatís clearly in play this week as the stock market rallies.  Also, Indian dealers have reduced their buying after the big gold price surge.

18.  Please click here now. Double-click to enlarge this daily gold chart.  The most impressive event in the rally from the $1272 area is the creation of a new up channel!

19.  A range trade for gold is likely now.  I think it will be in the $1310-$1350 area, although a wider range of $1292-$1350 is also possible.  Iím happily short gold stocks at my swing trade service via DUST/JDST after a big NUGT/JNUG win, but I do expect some gold stocks to keep rallying even as gold consolidates in the trading range.

20. On that note, please click here now.  Double-click to enlarge this Kirkland Lake chart.  My swing trade subscribers and I hold call options on this great company.  The stock is trading above its February high while most gold stocks are not.  This kind of outperformance is what I look for when considering a call options position. 

21.  As GDX tumbled yesterday, Kirkland rallied higher!

22. Speaking of GDX, please click here now. Double-click to enlarge.  The entire pullback from February is starting to look like a giant flag pattern.  The price target of the pattern is about $29.

23. Please click here now. Double-click to enlarge. Thatís a second look at the GDX chart.  Any consolidation that occurs now will build a H&S bull continuation pattern as well as more flag-like price action. 

24. The July Fed meeting (which occurs as the gold love trade strong demand season begins) could create a stock market inferno and a gold stocks ďRally to the starsĒ.  The bottom line: Investors who pare their stock market exposure as the US business cycle matures and increase their exposure to gold stocks are clearly acting with professionalism and prudence!
