Gold Possibility to Regain Its Medium-term Glitter

Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012 Nov 30, 2012 - 01:10 PM GMT

By: P_Radomski_CFA

Commodities

10 days ago, in our gold and silver stocks essay, we wrote that volatility in the mining stocks sector was mostly emotionally-driven. Since then some of that volatility seems to have transpired to the metals market. Gold dived $25 on Wednesday, immediately triggering rumors of misplaced trades or technical errors. The CME Group denied this had been the case and theories of a large player selling gold off in the morning sprung up like mushrooms.


Regardless of what was the case of the drop, one is clear: these are volatile times and the end of November has proved to be no exception. The month ends almost at the same price level where it began, with substantial action along the way. From this picture comes one conclusion which might be reassuring for gold bugs: the beginning of November turned out to be a local bottom.

The (short-term!) slide in October and the mixed developments in November come as no substantial pain to those of you who had decided to implement some of the ideas we had outlined in our essay on gold and silver portfolio structure. With November almost behind us, precious metals investors turn to December with hope of gold regaining its glitter just as the shops are being decorated for Christmas. One thing that could ruin gold investors’ good mood is a repeat of what we saw during last December when gold declined approximately $200. Actually, gold trades very close to price levels that it traded at before the December 2011 decline begun.

To find out what might be in store for gold, let’s turn to currency charts (charts courtesy of http://stockcharts.com).

We begin with a look at the long-term Euro Index chart. We do this because the overall situation in the currency markets is much clearer from this perspective. There is a flag pattern seen here following a sharp rally which is also a post-breakout consolidation.

As soon as the euro rallies a bit more, an even bigger rally will likely be seen. While a move to 131 would be significant, we would prefer to see the index surpass the 132 level (September high) before declaring that a significant additional rally is very likely. The flag pattern, a form of consolidation, implies that higher index values are more likely than not.

Turning now to the medium-term USD Index chart, a consolidation has been ongoing for over a month, and the index now appears ready to move lower. The decline and consolidation here are a reflection of the upswing and consolidation seen recently in the Euro Index.

All in all, the currency markets are likely to have positive impact on gold in the medium term.

Let’s move on to the yellow metal itself – this time we decided to provide you with the look at gold from the Japanese yen perspective.

The most interesting thing visible on the above gold chart is that when gold declined recently, it allowed the price in yen to verify a move above its declining resistance line. This breakout was verified, and the RSI is no longer heavily overbought. The situation here is bullish.

Is a major bottom in? The recent signal from the SP Gold Stock Extreme Indicator #2 confirms this theory.

There was a strong buy signal seen earlier this month suggesting that the bottom is in. The rebound was seen and the outlook remains bullish as this indicator suggests at least a 2-week rally in gold, silver and mining stocks. Consequently, the bullish implications are still in place.

Summing up, the long-term Euro Index chart and the medium-term USD Index chart suggest that lower values might be more probable than not for the dollar in the medium term. Along with a bullish picture from the gold in Japanese yen chart, the implications here are medium-term bullish for precious metals.
