Gold Price Seasonal Trend Analysis 2020

Commodities / Gold & Silver 2020 Jan 30, 2020 - 12:50 PM GMT

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Commodities

The gold bull market ended 2019 with a strong gain of 19%. The first half the year was marked with uncertainty as the price after an early year surge to $1350 gave up all of it's gains to drift lower to trade down on the year by early May. However, this was the calm before the bull market storm and that set the stage for a powerful bull run starting early June that saw the Gold price rocket higher to a early September peak of $1566, up over 25% on the year! Igniting Gold bug fever and encouraging prominent gold bugs to get carried away with headlines of Gold heading for $5000 and beyond.


However, the September high marked the start of a period of consolidation that just went on and on all the way into the end of November when off a $1446 low the Gold bull finally awoke with the price starting to trend higher once more, to end the year at $1520. With Gold rocketing to above the September high taking place early January when the drama queen in the White house launched his own rockets with the risks of igniting a new war in the Middle East, that luckily Iran proved incompetent at countering, including shooting down a passenger plane by mistake. This illustrates that we are living in an age of being ruled by MORONS! And whilst all this is going on the British media are wholly focused on just ONE story, MEGAN and HARRY tripe!

SEASONAL ANALYSIS

The most reliable seasonal patterns are for a strong January and February, followed by a weak period spanning March to July. Strong August and September, followed by a volatile uptrend into the end of the year.

As witnessed for 2019, December starts weak but ends strongly, so in reality early year Gold bull trends start during Mid December and continue into late February. Followed by a trading range of sorts and drift into June, with base building during June and July followed by a strong August and usually strong September, though the bull trend may not survive into the end of the month as happened during 2019. With usually a bullish bias for October to the end of December, where for 2019 we saw continued drift into early November as it took the market some time to digest the earlier bull run.

So the implied pattern is for stronger bull runs followed by lengthier periods for digestion during 2020. Which means when Gold enters a corrective period investors need to show PATIENCE, as gold is likely spend more time correcting than rallying. Which means there may not be much upside in the immediate future. Instead the Gold price looks likely to be entering a lengthy corrective period that could last until the second half of 2020!
