How to Protect your Wealth by Investing in AI Tech Stocks

Will Stocks Lead the Way Lower for Gold Miners?

Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2020 May 15, 2020 - 09:38 PM GMT

By: P_Radomski_CFA

Commodities

The precious metals market did almost nothing yesterday, and consequently we have relatively little to comment on today. There are two subtly bearish signs that we would like to feature, nonetheless.

The first subtly bearish sign is the change in the way the USD Index “topped” this month. In early April, and then in late April, the USDX reversed close to the 101 level and then moved lower in a decisive way, until declining below 99. This time has already proved to be different.


In early May, the USDX reversed and declined a bit, but instead of continuing its decline in the following days as it used to do in April, the US currency moved back up, and touched its previous highs. The shape of the decline is clearly different, so perhaps the outcome will be different as well. Perhaps instead of a move below 99, we’ll finally see a confirmed breakout above 101.

Again, it’s a relatively subtle indication, but still something that we noticed yesterday. Other factors that we discussed in the previous days are more important.

The second small sign is the mining stocks’ weakness. Even though gold, and the GLD ETF moved higher yesterday, the HUI Index – proxy for gold stocks – was practically flat. The GDX ETF - another proxy for the miners - closed lower.

This would normally be an important sign – not a small one – but yesterday’s weakness could be explained by a quite significant daily decline in the main stock indices.

The daily slide in the S&P 500 was likely to affect miners – and it did. Consequently, it’s no wonder that yesterday, miners disappointed relative to gold.

Still, let’s keep in mind that the stocks traded higher previously, and miners lagged, while silver leaped the gold price, so the bearish implications of the relative performance analysis remain intact. It’s just that yesterday’s session was not as meaningful as the previous ones were.

If stocks decline more and break below the 2850 level, they will create a bearish head-and-shoulders top pattern, with the target slightly below 2700. We don’t think that this level would stop the decline for long, but a decline – if it is to follow at all – has to start in some way. A move to 2700 or so based on the head-and-shoulders pattern seems a quite likely way for this move to start.

Let’s keep in mind that back in 2008 (and the current situation is still very similar to 2008 due to the sudden nature of the crisis) the final slide in gold started when the USD Index rallied decisively, breaking above the previous highs.

The USD Index has been trading back and forth for several weeks now without a meaningful breakout whatsoever. Perhaps the confirmed breakout above the 101 level will be what triggers the first part of what we think is going to be the final washout slide in the precious metals market.

All in all, gold’s outlook for the next few years is very bullish, but the outlook for the next several weeks remains bearish.
