The balance between US markets and precious metals in 2021 – What will out perform?

Chris Vermeulen, Founder of The Technical Traders joins me to balance out the drivers for US markets and precious metals as we move into 2021. There is a lot of uncertainty for next year but that doesn’t mean it will be negative. We are expecting a lot of volatility in the broad averages which will impact gold and especially the gold stocks.

    BMO was saying they expect gold to increase in 2021 by 8-9%

    News yesterday was warning food prices could increase 10% in 2021, sounds like gold will do what it always has.

    Phyzz gold might be wiser than cash in a bank.

    Chris thinking concerning people not buying into gold.
    The last time silver aproached $50 was the last time I saw line ups at the PM dealer.
    The public should get interested again but I have no idea at what price, young people I have spoken to have no interest in metal, they focus on crypto.

    On the other hand, those line ups at the dealer, really didnt have young people in them. ๐Ÿ˜‰

        Hi Matt, when is America’s Gold and Silver going to gain some traction, for many years it has traded sideways, it almost looks like a dead gunslinger on main street “Tits Up’. DT

          With T.USA, if you bought this stock 7 years, December 21st 2013 the price was exactly the same and if you held you would be thinking this is nuts, with inflation your stock would be worth about 50% of it’s price today! Time now to go bargain hunting. DT

          Hi DT, I’m guessing it will move soon along with the rest of the sector. I bet it will fly once it clears its 2019 and 8/2020 highs…

          I do not currently own it.

          Matthew – Thanks for the post on Brixton. The chart is looking tasty. Purchased some more SILJ this morning as well as a few micro cap gold miners.

            That chart looks like the correction could extend into February. Hopefully not though. I have been constructing Andrews Pitchforks lately. My charting software doesn’t have them so I have to constructed them manually using trend lines. I have a few stocks I would like your thoughts on. UUUU, is it due for a pull back or is there more fire coming in your opinion? Also, just wanted to have you take another look at Scandium International. Granted not a whole lot of volume, but the action is encouraging.

            Matthew says:

            UUUU is a tough one. Based on the daily chart, I’d trim if you haven’t already and sell more on a single dip (intraday, not a close) below the KAMA (now 2.82 and rising fast).

            Matthew says:

            The weekly chart leaves room for a quick shot to around $4 despite that record distribution volume last week. The 3.70s could stop the move but a move above that area would probably take you just over 4.00. With the weekly RSI currently at 79.5, I’d sell most if not all on such a move.

          • On December 16, 2020 at 3:55 pm,
            Matthew says:

            Stockcharts doesn’t support the U.S. listing for Scandium so I’ll use the Canadian symbol SCY.
            Before I looked at the weekly chart and Fib retracements, I was thinking you might see .27-.28 so I’ll stick with that.

            If not for gold/silver and commodities in general perking up right now, I’d probably expect a top much closer to the current level. Watch that fork support around .225 tomorrow…

    If this price holds, then that may happen, otherwise if that doesn’t happen, this price might hold. But we won’t know for sure until after it breaks out, and all the people that do know have made 3X before our subs get in. TA. Print a symbol log chart, take out a ruler, and then draw lines between lows and highs.

            I just now saw this thread, but thanks blazesb. Yep, I’ve been banging on the drum for Santacruz for a while because I feel that they have been so undervalued relative to their peers and overly punished for sins of the past, but their current and future set ups look promising for continued outperformance. They were the top Silver producer for percentage gains at the peak of the 2019 surge in PMs for a reason, and with costs coming down and production growing at Zimapan and Rosario, I expect them to continue to have amazing leverage to rising Silver prices, with nice Zinc/Lead kickers.

    Mr. Ross Beaty of Equinox reports


    Equinox Gold Corp. and Premier Gold Mines Ltd. have entered into a definitive agreement whereby Equinox Gold will acquire all of the outstanding shares of Premier.

      That would do the opposite of prove gold is a barbarous relic since such a move would have nothing to do with a decline in the dollar. Gold is money, BC isn’t. Gold will continue to reflect changes in the purchasing power of the dollar while BC will continue to move without any correlation to the dollar.
      BC going to the moon has no more significance than a stock or some other speculation going to the moon. Gold doesn’t care that profit-free Amazon is trading at $3200.
