Gold’s correction – Levels to watch, trading strategies, and understanding the investors that just came into the sector

September 22, 2020

Dave Erfle joins me to share his thoughts on the correction in precious metals. We discuss levels where gold and GDX could drop to as well as how he is trading the juniors. It’s important to understand the types of investors that just entered the sector as gold broke out a couple months ago. They are the weak heads right now that could cause another leg down.

    I don’t understand “taking Profits”. L prefer to let stocks with profits run with trailing stops, but cut losses quickly.
    But what do I know?

      Sep 22, 2020 22:02 AM

      That is because you are a longer term value investor. If you were an active trader there were plenty of opportunities to pull profits on short-term peaks, and then repurchase the same shares a lower prices, which generates more returns, than just buying and holding but involves more risks.

      Both are worthwhile strategies and have different risk/return dynamics and tax ramifications, but I made far more money swing-trading the miners this year, versus if I had just held shares all year long. Different strokes for different folks.

        Sep 22, 2020 22:42 PM

        I like trading when markets go up but that doesn’t happen much in the miners.

          Sep 22, 2020 22:20 PM

          I like trading when markets go down or up, and am more active on the way down than the way up. Without the volatility and whipsaw choppy markets it is far more difficult to trade.

          For example, I’ve slowed down my daily trading dramatically over the last 2 months as things channeled sideways, which is not as conducive to trading. Back in March, April, May, June, and July I was trading about 5-10 times or more per day, because there were crazy move higher, and more dramatic pullbacks. Today I only had 2 trades by adding to both Orezone and Gold Resource Corp., and those will be longer term holds, more so than swing trades.

            Sep 22, 2020 22:44 PM

            There are many companies I hope don’t get bought out, but Orezone is one of the companies I do hope it gets acquired for a nice premium. Same thing with Pure Gold, or Sabina, and a few other advanced developers.

            Gold Industry Needs Further Consolidation, Says Barrick’s Bristow

            September 22, 2020 – Mariaan Webb – Creamer Media Deputy Editor

            “The gold industry still has a mismatch of assets in too many managers’ hands and is in need of further consolidation,” says gold major Barrick CEO Mark Bristow.

            “The industry could be better served if we could reallocate some of the assets into the right place, with managements that have proven track records to deliver value,” Bristow said.

            “Wherever we can, we will encourage and where we see opportunities to add to our tier-one portfolio, we will be right there in the front of the queue.”


            Sep 22, 2020 22:46 PM

            Sounds like a commie,,,,,,,,Barrick nut job

            Sep 22, 2020 22:50 PM

            Just give it to Bezo to run and operate,,,,,along with Warren to hype,,,,,,then have
            Walmart,distribute, and put it up on Isle 3,,,,,then ,use self check out,,,, LOL

            Sep 22, 2020 22:53 PM

            Ha! OOTB, you know I normally agree with you and your points, but in this case Mark Bristow is considered one of the better mining CEO’s on the planet, and I agree with his general point that there needs to be more Mergers and Acquisitions in the Gold and Silver miners, as there are too many companies and many assets could and should be rolled up into more competent mining companies.

            That is simply smart capitalism more so than communism.

            Sep 22, 2020 22:20 PM

            No problem……….

            Sep 22, 2020 22:38 PM


          Sep 22, 2020 22:56 PM

          Up above I mentioned there were many companies I hope don’t get acquired, but one I expect to and would be OK with getting nabbed since it has already had a long and fantastic run is Pure Gold Mining.


          (PGM) (LRTNF) Pure Gold Mining Inc.

          September 15, 2020 – Precious Metals Summit #BeaverCreek (Virtual)

          “Pure Gold is a Canadian focused gold developer. In 2019 the Company released the feasibility study for its flagship project, the Madsen Red Lake Gold Mine, which outlines a 12 year LOM, current probable reserves of one million ounces at 9 g/t Au in 3.5 million tonnes, 800 tonne per day underground mining operation with comparatively low initial capital cost of C$95 million and strong financial performance with an after-tax NPV5% of C$247 million and an after-tax internal rate of return of 36%. In addition, specific exploration targets and satellite resources not considered in the feasibility study suggest an opportunity for near-term growth to potentially further enhance the economics of the project.”

            Sep 22, 2020 22:24 PM

            Another Gold Developer that is prime takeover target is Orezone. Added more today.

            September 16, 2020 – Precious Metals Summit #BeaverCreek (Virtual)

            “The 2019 feasibility study highlights Bomboré as an attractive shovel-ready gold project with forecasted annual gold production of 118,000 ounces over a 13+ year mine life at an All-In Sustaining Cost of US$730/ounce with an after-tax payback period of 2.5 years at an assumed gold price of US$1,300/ounce. Bomboré is underpinned by a mineral resource base in excess of 5 million ounces of gold and possesses significant expansion potential.”


            Sep 22, 2020 22:26 PM

            Triumph Gold is another Gold/Copper Developer I’d expect to see get nabbed this cycle.

            Sep 22, 2020 22:42 PM

            Sabina is another takeover candidate, and I’d be fine with it getting acquired as it has also had a nice run the last few years and is low hanging fruit in the development sector.

            (SBB) (SGSVF) Sabina Gold & Silver Corp.

            September 16, 2020 – Precious Metals Summit #BeaverCreek (Virtual)

            “Sabina Gold & Silver Corp. is a well-financed, emerging precious metals company with district scale, advanced, high grade gold assets in one of the world’s newest, politically stable mining jurisdictions: Nunavut, Canada.Sabina released a Feasibility Study on its 100% owned Back River Gold Project which presents a project that has been designed on a fit-for purpose basis, with the potential to produce ~200,000 ounces a year for ~11 years with a rapid payback of 2.9 years. At a US$1,150 gold price and a 0.80 (US$:C$) exchange rate, the Study delivers a potential after tax internal rate of return of approximately 24.2% with an initial CAPEX of $415 million. The Company has received a Back River Project Certificate and the critical authorizations for construction and operations. In addition to Back River, Sabina also owns a significant silver royalty on Glencore?s Hackett River Project. The silver royalty on Hackett River’s silver production is comprised of 22.5% of the first 190 million ounces produced and 12.5% of all silver produced thereafter.”

            Sep 22, 2020 22:17 PM

            Ex, great information, I just wanted to add one name that you first mentioned as being a takeover target and that is GoldON Resources. They share the same gold system that runs through Pure Gold’s property. With Pure Gold’s mine soon to be producing GLD is so close to the mill that any drill hit for them means they should be on everyone’s acquisition list. DT

            Sep 22, 2020 22:53 PM

            Agreed DT. Goldon is right there in the Red Lake action with Pure Gold and Great Bear, but since they are earlier stage, it will take some more drilling before they are a more serious takeover target. I own them and plan on taking them for the ride…

            Some of the other companies listed above and below are more advanced developers or smaller producers that a larger company could bolt on to replace reserves or augment their production profile.

            Sep 22, 2020 22:55 PM

            BTU Metals is also adjacent to Great Bear and in on the Red Lake action as well, and I’m holding them with fingers crossed that they are going to find Great Bear 2.0.

    Sep 22, 2020 22:35 PM

    I was more active when profits were growing. I expanded the number of stocks I held as well as my tax bill. Now I am consolidating and profits dropping (15% decline in acvount value since July).
    Added to Impact, Minera Alamos, Metallic, Northern Vertex, Precipitate and Santacruz today.

      Sep 22, 2020 22:41 PM

      My account value is down about 8% since the peak, but again I attribute limiting the losses to pulling profits and some good swing trading.

      David those are all excellent companies to be growing positions in, and I considered adding to all of those today, but still have nice profitable positions in all of them, so decided just to hold. If the metals and miners keep pulling back then I’ll likely add to those as well.

        Sep 22, 2020 22:01 PM

        Some that have gone negative that I am not selling but bolding are Irving, Freegold, Blackrock and Ely. I have added to Freegold on the decline and Ely I churn as a bank. However, most of these are negative as I bought on their way up and sold off the cheaper shares. It think things would go better if the Ced Governors had duct tape under their masks.

          Sep 22, 2020 22:03 PM

          Ced = Fed

          Sep 22, 2020 22:47 PM

          Interesting picks to build up. I was in Freegold for a swingtrade, and bought it on the big sell off, but flipped right back out of it again for a 22% gain, and don’t have positions in Blackrock or Ely, but haver reviewed both and know that they are widely followed. I see the cross chatter about them over at all the time.

          I like the royalty companies though and still may add Ely into the fold, after I add EMX. I’m also considering VOX, Elmental, Trident, Riverside, Altius, and Anglo pacific group.

          The last royalty company I added to the mix was Nomad, and it has risen nicely since then. I’ve also traded both Maverix and Metalla a number of times scalping gains, but have kept a core position in them, as well as Golden Valley Mines and Sailfish. I really just wanted a half dozen royalty companies, and was thinking EMX may finish that initiative, but there are so many interesting precious metals and base metals royalties springing up that I may go for 8-9.

      “Impact is a rare instance of an exploration-focused junior producer.

    Wow – It is crazy in the $Gold and $Silver markets today, with the metals and miners down again. I’ve been busy all morning heeding the advice of Admiral Ackbar – “Take Evasive Action!” 🙂

      Sep 23, 2020 23:48 AM

      I’ve been selling the few dogs I’ve got left, that have been kept on a long leash (hoping they’d rebound a bit more before cutting them loose for tax loss selling).

      Conversely, I’ve been buying the quality assets back on firesale in the selloff today.

      It’s a good time to #ShuffleTheDeck.

      Sep 23, 2020 23:58 AM

      COMEX options mature tomorrow…..the banks may have covered enough shorts by then to end the rape.

      I hope so, because I’m running out of spare cash with my buying silver/shares.

    Sep 23, 2020 23:06 AM

    Thanks ex, Jerry and cfs for your comments today!

    Gold update!

    This looks and smells like it could end today or even tomorrow! However It looks like there may be more pain for 2-3 weeks. Lines-up with my previous gold update October week of the 16 th final low..

    I will tell you how I’m playing this.

    My longs remain intact=Have not sold one share
    My short term trading portfolio= Did not sell a share

    I’m a net buyer..Had 4 tranches of which I used 2. This is in record and in real terms.

    I did not buy today and those two remaking tranches May not come to fruition however of this timing low goes into my timing band lol of the 16 th, I will deploy 3rd and than final 4 th tranche and go for a walk..

    Bottom line is I have turned to waiting/buying investor until further notice.


      Sep 23, 2020 23:39 AM

      Glenfidish – Thanks for sharing your market outlook and the strategy you are personally taking.

      I ended up doing more buying today than I expected to do, and fortified a few of my key positions in advanced developers and in particular the producers (which I still believe will surprise the markets with their Q3 results when those operations reports hit the newswires in 1-2 months). As a result I’ve used up a great bit of my dry powder today, but have a little bit more left to deploy if we see more selling throughout the week.

      I still have some deep savings I could bring over from other accounts if this downturn gets really protracted, but I’d only bring out that firepower if Gold did go back below $1800 or if Silver went back below $21. We’ll see how it goes…

      Ever Upward!

      Sep 23, 2020 23:44 AM

      Glen thanks for sharing your thoughts………….best

      Sep 23, 2020 23:38 PM

      I was just planning to send a note your way Glenfidish to learn of when you were planning to go in with your next tranche, but you beat me to it. thanks for sharing.
