Gold Price and Gold Stocks Launch!

While at near-term risk, the gold sector is launching, not blowing off

Okay, the title of the post is a bit of a joke at this late stage of the rally because it sounds like hype and we have actually been calling the move in the gold sector a potential launch for weeks now, since gold and HUI each busted through their bear market limiters, the EMA 75 and EMA 55, respectively.


That was four weeks ago.  Today the hype is all around and the sector is going vertical and is indeed at high risk now.  Big money is pouring into the sector right in line with the story the chart below and many other macro indicators have helped define.  We have been following myriad indicators since last summer when we began a theme of illustrating the proper ‘macrocosmic’ fundamentals needed to launch the sector.  Gold vs. S&P 500 is just one of them and it is now bullish, despite the current consolidation.

Ah but we are at high risk now, right?  Right.  Some writers are on this theme and are probably correct in calling the sector’s “blow off” a terminal thing.  But only if they are talking about it being terminal for this move, not for upcoming bull market potential.  Although I think the odds have shifted significantly in favor of the prospect that a bull has already begun, that will only be proven later when more technical milestones have been achieved.

In recent NFTRH reports and updates we have been talking about bear market rules vs. bull market rules.  For instance, the Commitments of Traders data are very bearish right now for gold and silver.  But there is historical precedent, which we covered in detail in NFTRH 384, showing a similar setup at the start of the bull market early last decade.

Some analysts have advised to beware the “blow off” in gold, which will bring on new lows.  But due to the fundamental view having improved greatly over the last few months and due to the technical milestones like EMA 75 and EMA 55 for gold and HUI above, a coming correction can be considered a launch phase to a new bull market as opposed to a blow off and blow out phase to a bull (ref. silver in early 2011).

Any coming pullback will be one of opportunity as it stands now, barring a complete undoing of the fundamentals that have gathered so firmly over the last several months.  It is advised that gold sector aficionados have pullback levels (i.e. key support levels) plotted out in advance for when their favorite miners are inevitably traded out by the momentum players now buying in.  That is what we will be doing.
