Technical updates on gold and GDX

Doc joins me to field a couple questions on the gold and GDX charts. Gold is still nicely holding above the $1,370 breakout level while GDX has some gaps left by this recent run.

    Hi Doc/ Cory.
    Thanks again for all your efforts ๐Ÿ˜Ž
    Can you recommend a book explaining the โ€˜left translated cycleโ€™?
    First time I heard Doc mentioning this, was back in October 2015, in a hefty discussion with Gary Savage.
    Anyway – what source can you recommend, if I want to learn more about cycles?

      This might help a little:

      Cycle Length: Lows are usually used to define the length of a cycle and project the cycle into the future. A cycle high can be expected somewhere between the cycle lows.

      Translation: Cycles almost never peak at the exact midpoint nor trough at the expected cycle low. Most often, peaks occur before or after the midpoint of the cycle. Right translation is the tendency of prices to peak in the latter part of the cycle during bull markets. Conversely, left translation is the tendency of prices to peak in the front half of the cycle during bear markets. Prices tend to peak later in bull markets and earlier in bear markets.

    Hi Doc, do you own any NSRPF or OPYGY? How far could they fall this summer? Thanks.

    During the bull market of the last decade, it was a rare quarter that did not see gold pierce the 5 quarter ema before moving higher. That level is currently 1347.
    Sorry, most won’t be able to access the following chart:

    BB, I owned Novo months ago and when it spiked, I sold it. I’m getting ready to purchase some again in the near future.I hope to purchase just below $1.50. I don’t own OPYGY and don’t know much about the stock.

    Doc where to you see gdx pullback target range if gold tests 1360 level? Thanks

    Matthew says:

    Since the low last summer, gold gained 23% ($275) while GDX gained 53%. Neither showing is insignificant and I expect a very good second half of the year with the miners doing much better versus gold.

    $GDM is approaching what should be significant resistance:

    Those who understand our fractal existence can see that gold’s all-time high will fall easily:

      If gold went up about 8 fold from 2001 to 2011, it could easily go up 3 fold or 5 fold or 8 fold from the low of 1050 in the next few years. Rob McEwen expects gold at 5K, but 8K is very possible. We’ll be fine even if gold goes to only 3K which could take silver to 100.

        You ever run into Butto O’Dorke? Isn’t he your Congresscritter?

        During that “debate” I couldn’t tell if he was running for President of the US or Mexico.

          Ebolan, Butto is from El Paso, about 900 miles from me. I hear that his Spanish is as dreadful as his politics.

      Hi Matthew, I am wondering what your take is on the short term direction of the Canadian dollar. I like it where it is now and I feel it is properly valued. Thank-you, DT

    Can you imagine if an American of Iranian descent did this?

    If you’re an Israeliar you can damn near get away with anything…and get rich at the same time.

    Let’s get the show on the road, Nancy Pelosi wants to raise the debt limit again. I think this is a great idea since it will happen anyway no matter what she say’s. The cry from the expensive seats is, RAISE THE DEBT, RAISE THE DEBT. Really, does anyone think that you cannot “RAISE THE DEBT”.

      The U.S. has the choice: Increase Debt or Default.

      DT, you probably disagree, but I consider default as disaster. i.e. no choice but raise debt.

      A default means pensions reduced, medicare/medicaid reduced, welfare reduced, ability to defend nation reduced, grants to universities reduced, student loans reduced, grants from federal govn’mt to local govs reduced etc., etc.

    Interesting developments in Epstein case:
    Someone using the name George M. Nasif tweeted out some video descriptions of what was obtained from the Weiner laptop.
    (This is unverified and his Twitter account embargoed.)
    He claims there are videos of Hillary and Huma Abedin with sex acts and worse with minor girls.

          Remember when George H.W. Bush blamed Greenspan for his 1992 election loss? Is anyone foolish enough to think that Trump has more power than Bush had?
