    Gold is a weekly chart “sell” versus silver and I agree with Rick Rule that $1,500 gold in 2019 would not be surprising. Therefore, $22+ silver looks like a fairly conservative guess.

    Dec 29, 2018 29:13 AM

    For those who thought Wednesday’s 5% Dow move was a bullish sign, think again:

    Dec 29, 2018 29:50 AM

    Boy’s It’s Coming you are ELECTRONIC SLAVES !

    Dec 29, 2018 29:03 PM

    Next week will probably bring a big breakout for silver:

    Dec 29, 2018 29:18 PM

    Gold and silver looks like they have a little more juice but then should disappoint and fall back again. GDX is looking like it’s struggling also. The next pullback should be a great opportunity again to add to positions.

      Dec 30, 2018 30:14 AM


      What kind of pullback do you see for GDX ?

      Did PG.TO bottom in Nov-Dec, or do you see it going lower ?

    Dec 29, 2018 29:30 PM

    A little more short term weakness does look likely for GDX:

    Dec 29, 2018 29:57 PM

    Gold has reclaimed the 89 week moving averages after spending about six months below them:

      Dec 29, 2018 29:33 PM

      More importantly, gold is now firmly above the 200 and 600 week moving averages. When it lost the 600 week EMA at the bear market low in late 2015, it was the first time it had done so since climbing above it in 2002. Then, when it finally lost the 600 week simple MA in 2018, it was the first time it had done so since climbing above that MA also in 2002. Both breakdowns caused most investors to wrongly look for much lower prices.

        Dec 29, 2018 29:40 PM

        Note that the 200 and 233 week MAs are below the 600 week MA for the first time in 14-15 years. This could add to volatility until that situation ends.

    Dec 29, 2018 29:10 PM

    I posted the following Fibonacci arc chart on the 17th to show two possible paths for gold following the Fed’s decision. Luckily, it is taking the preferred route:

    What levels are you watching for the next pullback for GDX and GLD?

    Did PG.TO bottom in Nov-Dec?

    Happy New Year!

    Dec 30, 2018 30:21 AM

    Silver closed Friday at the 200 day MA for the first time since June. The daily chart is getting slightly stretched but the weekly chart looks better than it has in years and could cause the short term move to extend significantly. Either way, the weekly charts suggests that there’s little downside from a big-picture perspective.

      Dec 30, 2018 30:23 AM

      When the weekly chart turns so positive, that’s where the focus should be:

        Dec 30, 2018 30:11 PM

        Matthew, that is a beautiful silver chart. I fired my Ruger SP101 .327 magnum at a metal gong up at my sister’s farm yesterday and am very happy I bought it. It has plenty of punch for social work. I need to take some losses tomorrow. If you had a big loss in AGN and DVN, which would you sell? Thanks.

          Dec 30, 2018 30:33 PM

          “Plenty of punch for social work.” 😳 Lol 👌

          That’s good to hear about your Ruger, Bonzo.

          I would definitely sell AGN. DVN looks much better longer term and is almost ready for at least a significant bounce.

            Dec 30, 2018 30:44 PM

            Thanks, Matthew. PFE wanted to buy AGN for over $300 a share but Obama stopped the deal. Now it is down to 130 with a PE of 8, but the CEO is a disaster, so there is no telling how low it could go. I hate to sell DVN down at 22 but I do have a big loss in it. I think I will sell the AGN and hope DVN is bought by CVX or Shell.

    Dec 30, 2018 30:41 PM

    Is anyone else watching the oversea gold price? $190 down at the moment. Silver is up and down. WOW!

    Dec 30, 2018 30:48 PM

    Final washout? Looks like it…

      Dec 30, 2018 30:55 PM

      That was my first thought also. An entity dumping before year end for some reason IMHO.

        Dec 30, 2018 30:00 PM

        Its not accurate.

          Dec 30, 2018 30:03 PM

          Kitco says gold is 1089, but others say different. Let’s file a class action suit vs Kitco for emotional trauma and cruelty.

            Dec 30, 2018 30:05 PM

            Kitco Wack Out……

            Dec 30, 2018 30:07 PM

            Very interesting………

          Dec 30, 2018 30:09 PM

          I think and really hope your right.

            Dec 30, 2018 30:25 PM

            No need for hope, its spot price is inaccurate like I said above.
            Anyhoo, I’m gonna crack a beer. Its hot & its nearly noon.

            Dec 30, 2018 30:28 PM

            If anyone wants, they have adjusted there pricing on gold coins and bars for sale. Hahaha.

            Dec 30, 2018 30:30 PM

            … and now their pricing is back to normal but their world price is still out.

    Dec 30, 2018 30:34 PM

    Kitco’s bots must have had issues starting up this afternoon –

    Somebody needs to look at their code –

    The weekly GDX chart shows why today’s action has been important. The bulls are winning but can they finish the week on top? I think they can and that will further frustrate those who’ve been too focused on the daily chart.

    Dec 31, 2018 31:02 PM

    GDM (Gold Miners Index):

    Dec 31, 2018 31:04 PM

    GDX breakout and highest close since July:

    Jan 01, 2019 01:33 AM

    Happy New Year Matthew. I am looking forward to a better year at least as far as the precious metals are concerned. Definitely a good finish to the year. Thanks again for all of your charts. Always interesting to hear your views.

      Jan 01, 2019 01:52 AM

      Thank you, Charles. Happy New Year. Losing 2018 wasn’t fun but I think 2019 will more than make up for it.
      After yesterday’s action, it now looks like there is still more short term upside – possibly significantly more. It’s great that sentiment remains terrible despite the very positive picture that has developed…

      Jan 01, 2019 01:53 AM

      Thank you Matthew, Thank you Excelsior, Out of the box, Cory, Everyone! Happy New year! I read an acrtical today bout bullion sales down in U.S. Mint. Maybe just maybe 2019 will start ever so slightly up ward. Thanks again for the Kereport

        Jan 01, 2019 01:31 AM

        Happy New Year, Whit. Bullion should have a good year but the miners of bullion are likely to have a fantastic year.

          Jan 01, 2019 01:08 PM

          Good to hear Matthew…..i look forward to green on the screen!

        Jan 01, 2019 01:27 PM

        Whit – Happy New Year cheers! May 2019 be a prosperous year.

          Jan 02, 2019 02:07 AM

          Good to hear….cheers!

    GDX at speed line (blue) and Fibonacci fan resistance:

    Jan 01, 2019 01:16 PM

    I have said for years that when the stock market finally breaks, gold and the gold miners would not take part in the plunge like they did in 2008. I got that right but the disconnect has been even better than I thought it would be. GDX has gained as much as 45% versus the Dow since September and that action has bullish implications for the future.
    GDX:DIA daily:

    Jan 01, 2019 01:22 PM

    The gold miners priced in real money is in the process of confirming the gold miners priced in dollars.
    GDX:GLD weekly:

    Jan 01, 2019 01:52 PM

    I was too bullish when I posted the following chart one day after the gold miners bottomed in early September but they never did go lower and are now up about 20% — and twice that versus stocks.
    To end up with a big beautiful double bottom instead of a runaway fall rally is ultimately a good thing for the health of the move we’ve been waiting for. Sentiment could hardly be worse while the technical setup could hardly be better.

    Jan 01, 2019 01:13 PM

    Imminent breakout for sector kingpin ABX? I think so…

    Jan 01, 2019 01:12 PM

    The $USD sure looks like it’s about to drop, what looks like could be a big drop too. I’m unsure about gold at the moment, but copper stocks are looking like the place to be real soon.
