We’re getting a pleasant pop in gold and silver on Friday, however not a lot within the miners. My concern is that gold was neither extraordinarily oversold nor positively divergent forward of this rally. We didn’t get a positively divergent decrease low forward of the rally in silver both.
These rallies may very well be only a wave B earlier than heading decrease once more in wave C. On the similar time, DXY is hovering above short-term assist, however we didn’t get a negatively divergent increased excessive of word, like we did in March, previous to this drop, which implies it may very well be a short-term correction earlier than increased once more. Now, an excessive RSI and/or divergence just isn’t required for a peak or trough, but it surely actually will increase confidence in such turning factors.
Key resistance in gold is at $2,000. Till that’s damaged, the danger stays down, and even then, there’s no assure that the underside is in till we take out $2,055 on a closing foundation.
Silver wants to shut above ~$24.40 as a way to improve the likelihood that the underside is in. Whereas if we do drop all the way down to a positively divergent decrease low first, this would offer far better confidence that we’re going to check the excessive of $26.23 subsequent.
The truth that GDX and SILJ usually are not following go well with just isn’t too massive of a priority as a result of they’ll lag the metals initially in each rallies and reversals.
My concern stays that if the Bullion Banks wish to attract as many consumers as attainable earlier than dropping the hammer on the metals, that is exactly the way in which to do it. Create enthusiasm, worry of lacking out, after which pull the proverbial rug from below them.
Then there’s the FOMC and the ECB fee choices coming subsequent week. Will they observe the Financial institution of Canada and Australia and hike? Till we get that out of the way in which, there’s little in the way in which of readability within the quick time period.
However, as soon as once more, regardless of the low of those corrections seems to be, it is going to be adopted by a gargantuan rally imho, very similar to the underside at $1,272 in gold on Might 2, 2019.
