Chris Temple from The National Investor – Tue 7 Jul, 2020

A focus on the moves higher in Gold, gold stocks, and the NASDAQ

Chris Temple joins me today to share his thoughts on the continued standouts that are gold and tech stocks. Gold futures are over $1,800 and the stocks continue to play catch up, confirming this breakout. As for the NASDAQ, is higher on weak breadth but that doesn’t seem to matter right now.

    Great commentary as always guys, I am going to add that Geopolitical tensions between Israel and Iran could be influencing Gold as well.

      There was an explosion at an Iranian facility.
      I havnt seen a firm report as to what caused it yet.
      Apparently damage was not too bad.

      Some time ago, potential war had no affect on the metals, even when Russia was facing off with the americans at times, so imo its still the printing thats causing the rise in golds price.

      Here is Eric Coffin’s take on the VZLA halt.

      @HRA-Coffin – “I think we can assume they didn’t halt the stock because its dusters. They’re not idiots. Best guess is they have most of the results and are waiting for the last few, or some overlimits or something and felt it was material enough that they had to halt. Not sure it’s strictly “necessary” but that is a decision every management group makes for themselves. $VZLA”

      @HRA-Coffin – “It won’t be duster. Listen to the zoom call I did after the last release with Mike and Charles. Charles made it fairly plain the holes he was drilling and waiting for had core that looked pretty much the same as the last ones they released. I’m not even a little bit worried about the stock going higher. $VZLA”

          Not that I know anything, but my guess is it goes to $15-$25 this time, cdn.

          Another one I think will move is seabridge, its low cdn was about $4.50 its $25 now, I can see that hitting $100 or more.

          Course maybe an earthquake happens and it all end up on the ocean floor.
          Ive had a mine cave in once or twice, just as they looked to pay off so surprises happen.
          As well as viens just simply unexpectedly end.

    Big Funds to Pull Money Out of Stocks: 2nd Wave to Hit Economy

    by @TheTechnicalTraders on 7 Jul 2020


    -Big funds to pull money out of markets.

    -Falling dollar to really start to benefit gold

    -Gold miners showing signs of life.

    -$2,000 gold will change peopleโ€™s mindsets in gold.

    • On July 7, 2020 at 11:36 am,
      b says:

      Yup, $2000 will change some thinking, but that change could begin sooner than that.
      A shade over $1900?

      • On July 7, 2020 at 11:42 am,
        Excelsior says:

        Yes, once the yellow metal takes out it’s all time high of $1923, then the sparks will fly.

        Really with Gold over $1800 the Gold producers should be banking the free cash flows, and if one looks at how undervalued they are compared to when Gold was last at these price levels in 2011, then there is still a lot of catching up to do for the producers.


        I had posted this over at earlier regarding the HUI in the last cycle versus this one:

        If one looks at where the $Gold #producers were trading back in 2011 when the yellow metal was last at these levels, then there is still quite a bit of catching up to to and it represents an interesting buying opportunity indeed.

      Regarding VZLA – I posted a few of Eric Coffin’s thoughts up above, but he added this regarding Vizsla’s halt today.


      @HRA-Coffin – “They will be reporting new Hole(s) from the same trend as the holes in the last release. They may have had “overlimit” assays (probably did, in fact). Most assay procedures work best within a certain grade range. Over that amount the lab will rerun the samples using a procedure better suited to high grade material. The sort of grades reported in the last release would have required some of the samples being rerun as over limit samples. It wouldn’t be a huge batch of samples. Getting a few over limits done shouldn’t take long. Especially if they are pushing the lab for results as I’m sure they are”

            Wolfster says:

            Well not to start an argument Ex but it’s up 3x from its march low as well. I think that’s the problem with just about all the pm jrs. They got way oversold in march. The real way to look at undervalued is where are they now in relationship to pre crash levels.

          • On July 8, 2020 at 5:29 am,
            Excelsior says:

            Yeah, I agree with you Wolfster that almost all the miners got really oversold a few months back in the crash, but I feel that Triumph Gold looks undervalued compared to their peers and the pre-crash levels, where it also seemed undervalued.

            The point of the 2 dozen explorers and 2 dozed developers in the charts I posted was to show how aggressively that they were bid back by the marketplace, and on increasingly high volumes that we haven’t seen in a while. (and there were many more companies not included that had similar moves, as their are about 800-1000 Gold & Silver explorers and developers).

            This leads me to believe that there is new generalist money finally working it’s way down the food chain into the junior miners, as many of them are breaking out way above prior levels that resource investors on their own were unable to break them out. Now, we’ve seen evidence of new capital inflows, for example, in the big swath of Robinhood investors that have started nibbling at dual listed companies, so I’m sure there are plenty of locked down Canadians, Americans, Aussies, Europeans, Middle Easterners, and Asian investors that have also been locked down at home or lost their jobs and that are using a variety of trading platforms to nibble at speculative sectors. We knew that day would come and it appears the extreme washout in all the markets during a stay at home pandemic, brought in a new generation of traders.

            Doesnโ€™t mean I didnโ€™t like triumph. I bought some of it along with goldon. Had to sell some pure gold. Was just getting way to big a percentage of my portfolio

          • On July 8, 2020 at 9:00 am,
            Excelsior says:

            Yeah that is the way things go with resource investing, and it is an art on when to take profits and when to let a position ride. I trimmed my Pure Gold a bit last week, but it has gone up more since then, and is up again today. Triumph is down so far today, even though the metals are running higher. I trimmed back my Vizsla today after it exploded higher. If there is a corrective move that pulls either back down, then I’ll buy those partial positions back.

            Thanks b. Yes, there are too many Jr miners popping to have the funds to be in such a large group, and it makes sense to invest in what you know as well.

            As for the political/philosophical/world religions/secret societies/hidden or forgotten history/or new science posts etc… I generally try to keep them off the investing editorials, although sometimes the conversations take place where they develope organically. I also found some of my ideas may be a bit too non-conventional at times on certain topics where folks have entrenched belief systems that they want to defend, so the KER doesn’t seem like the appropriate platform to have those debates. As a result, I generally just post occasionally now on more mainstream issues or western US based commentators.

            If people want to peel back the layers of the belief systems and more fringe or taboo research, then there are thousands of other platforms better suited for those kinds of topics.

            Regardless, thanks for the kind words b.

          Thanks for the kind words b. Yes, there have been so many PM miners popping it’s hard to even take it all in. As you mentioned it is best to invest in what one knows, and the companies you follow closest, as you mentioned.

          As for the political/religious/philosophical/secret societies & deep state/forbidden forgotten history/ new science/ and other topics I have ranted on previously, I’ve found that many folks on public forums tend to clutch too deeply to their entrenched programmes belief systems, to even allow an alternate explanation or new understanding into their pattern of conscious loops. Now a days I generally try to keep them off the investing threads and stick to current events and more acceptable discourse in the political editorials, or to bring some humor and levity to those discussions where people are taking themselves and their opinions and beliefs too seriously. There are many other places to go online to get into the other kinds of discussions, so since this is first and foremost an economic forum, I look at local/national/global events that may affect the economy and business – like the shut downs, riots, kids possibly not returning to school next year, energy sector political biases, trade wars, currency wars. taxation, disruptive technologies, etc…

            Sorry for a bit of a double post. My phone said the initial one was waiting moderation, then it just disappeared, so I retype a new message based in what I could recall.

            Weird that the old one showed up later…

        Gold futures just ratcheted up to $1827.

        This should give the gold miners a nice boost.

            Yes, Silver is on the move as well up over $19 again.

            The PM sector continues to wake up.

    What I still like best, SILV WILL BE PROFITABLE SINGULARLY FROM GOLD OR SILVER. AND ALONG WITH Alexco, by the time production starts in the next 6-18 months, both companies will be cash cows virtually immediately.

      Yes agreed Marty. Silvercrest and Alexco will have excellent costs and economics due to their very high grades, and will hit the ground running when they move into production in the not-so-distant future… and that is easy to like for sure.
