A look at the gold stock sector

Doc and I have been chatting a lot about the gold price but in this segment we look at gold stocks in general. From the daily chart to the monthly chart for GDX we assess the potential of a pullback with the metals as well as the upside potential.

            Americas Silver has been stellar action lately. I trimmed some of my USAS yesterday and today. Still very bullish on the stock and PMs are still ratcheting higher, but I wanted to move some over into other plays that may still make a larger move higher.

            If we’ve already seen the short term high, my guess is that roughly 5.40 is the first level of support. The way it gets there should tell us if we should be looking lower.

    USA has just started to move, they are opening their third mine at the end of this month and with USAS past $4 and USA past $5 CDN the institutions will be buying in. Not a time to sell especially with their low float. DT

      DT; you could be right. It appears that it wants to break out on the monthly chart which would be huge. I wish I owned more of this stock.

        In that case I guess I’ll hold my USAS at least till it becomes a long term holding.

            DT – I’ll definitely be adding back on pullbacks, as it is one of my favorite Silver/Zinc miners and I’ve been in and out of it for years. I still have a small position in it, but trimmed a big chunck the last 2 days to pull profits, as it’s had a nice run, and as we can see so far today, that was a good call as it has been retreating a bit.

            I may nibble a little bit more today actually, but my position was larger than I wanted, and there were other interesting companies that haven’t had the initial move out of the corrective leg from the last year or so that needed a little fortifying.

            I’m still very bullish on Americas Silver though for the medium to long term. Cheers!

      Anyone who looked at that C$ chart above should look at it again. The big blue fork needed to be updated due to the lower low in the spring. The adjustment has lowered the next resistance significantly to just over 84 — which is just above the 2015 high. Here it is with some time added:

          I really thought when the strike ended, and they made some headway on the Mexican tax issues (which they did on both fronts) that the shares would snap back a little more, as they were already at a ridiculous level.

          However, now that they have ditched any more exploration on San Dimas this year and are mostly done wrapping a transaction to sell it as well, then it will help out their balance sheet, but they’ll have sold both their producing mines this year.

          All they’ll have left are a few development projects and exploration projects at that point. I expect them to announce the sale of San Dimas in the next month or 2.

      Jay, not yet. Momentum is to the downside yet along with the fact the 20 day MA of the BBs have been compromised. It looks like I’ll be taking a small position in the next couple of weeks and then add over time as the technicals indicate.

    pardu says:

    Doc, as metals move higher and one wishes to purchase the actual bullion, do you think silver bullion coins are a better bet than gold or visa versa? And, is a pullback in the cards near term making it a better time to purchase?

  14. On September 7, 2017 at 3:57 pm,
    PRICHARD/DOC says:

    Pardu, I’m not going to purchase the actual bullion here but am hoping for a pullback. I can’t believe we’re going to knife right through 1375, 1400, and 1450 for gold on this run. These are major resistance levels and to get through all of them would be herculean. On a pullback, I an personally going to be purchasing gold coins instead of silver since I own a lot of silver in comparison to my position in gold bullion. I don’t think either of the metals should pull back significantly due to the narrowing of the BBs on the monthly charts.

      I would be surprised if it hits 1400 at this stage. Mind you I was looking for a pullback at the 1330 level, so who knows…

      • On September 8, 2017 at 7:12 am,
        Excelsior says:

        Ozibatla, I do believe Gold has a shot at $1400 later this year, but yes I agree with you that it seems likely to have a corrective move first to build up the juice to get through $1377.50 (the high from 2016).

        After Gold & Silver have a “Pause That Refreshes” then we may see them make a move at a higher high for 2017 closer to the $1400 mark.

        • On September 8, 2017 at 8:35 am,
          Matthew says:

          I think it will go well above 1400 before the end of the year.

          Ozibatla says:

          Good thoughts Excelsior.

          If and when the metals do pullback and consolidate it would be good to see them do so at a figure not far under where we currently sit. That way they put in a nice support level to bounce back off when another rally ensues. $1300 therefore is key I believe as this will ensure that the former solid resistance level has now become solid support.

          $1400 for gold and $20 for silver would be a good result at years end.
