How To Trade Gold Stocks with Momentum

Commodities / Gold and Silver 2018 Feb 19, 2018 - 12:30 PM GMT

By: Chris_Vermeulen

Commodities

As a technical trader, I like it when multiple charts, indicators, and asset classes agree with each other for trade setups. This short article is to show you some of the things I look at which provide a buy signal for gold stocks.

One of the key trading tips I learned years ago, is that average a sharp price reversal and surge in price, we as traders can buy into the first pullback with a high probability of a continuation in price.


Why is this key trading tip so important?
Because picking bottoms and tops are risky business, and in most cases, we miss them. Thus, we need to know when the next best time to enter this asset is – buy the dip/first pullback!

Trading Technical Analysis – US Dollar Index Cycle Bias

The blue lines on the chart is a blend of the most active price cycles for the dollar. As you can see the price is expected to move higher over the next 1-3 days, then be under pressure again. When the dollar falls in value, it helps lift the price of gold and gold-related assets like gold stocks.

Gold Cycle Analysis

Cycle analysis points to higher prices for a few days, but the upside for gold looks fairly limited as its struggling at recent highs (resistance). But as long as gold holds value or grinds higher it should help lift gold stocks higher.

Gold Miners Reversal, Pop, and Cycle Analysis

This daily chart of GDX gold miners shows a big reversal and pop in price. This sets the stage for a second leg higher once the first pullback in price reaches a buy trigger zone.

GDX 120 minute (2hr chart) Trading Technical Analysis

If you don’t know or understand Fibonacci retracements of 38-50%, or Fibonacci extensions of 61% and 100%, then the lines on the chart below will not make much sense to you. So, let sum things up quickly.

When price retraces (pulls back) 38% – 50% of a recent rally that is where price usually finds support. This is seen on the chart via the green box buy zone.

Once price reaches that buy zone we can then use Fibonacci extensions of 61% and 100% which uses the previous low down at $21 and rally up to $23 as the upside potential from the green box. Price should find minor resistance at the 61% level, and if a pause or pullback takes place at 61%, then 100% target should be reached as well.

On the chart, I have also added the two red resistance levels which happen to fall near our 61% and 100% targets. While this may seem like a coincidence, believe it or not, the more you study and learn to trade technical analysis you will notice the markets are not that random at all!

Conclusion

In short, the momentum behind gold mining stocks along with the technical analysis points to higher prices in the week ahead. Nothing in the financial markets are 100% certain, so this may not play out as we expect, but this is how I have been trading technical analysis for 21 years. If you have proper position sizing, risk management, and timely setups like what you see here, you can make a lot of money over time.
