The precious metals complex is arguably at its most bearish sentiment since thegold start of the bull market 12 years ago. Either the bull market is over or this will prove to be a tremendous buying opportunity. It’s clear that anyone who doesn’t believe in Gold for the long-term has sold and judging from the sentiment indicators, Gold is now in much stronger hands than when it was trading at these prices at the 2012 and 2011 lows. Despite all of the bearish sentiment, the panic and bad-mouthing, Gold (and Silver) has maintained its consolidation. Thus, if Gold is able to hold this support and turn higher, it should approach $1750 to $1800 faster than one would think.

So writes Jordan Roy-Byrne, CMT (http://thedailygold.com) in edited excerpts from his original article* entitled Gold Holding Support Despite Extreme Negative Sentiment.

Roy-Byrne goes on to say in further edited excerpts:

Gold Sentiment

We all know that sentiment on Gold is quite bearish. Rather than post numerous charts which you’ve likely already seen, I want to note some of the recent statistics. By recent, I refer to the past two weeks.

  • Market Vane’s bullish consensus for Gold hit its lowest since 2001.
  • SentimenTrader.com’s public opinion, which combines various surveys, touched its lowest level since 2004.
  • GLD has seen outflows for 41 consecutive days. It’s monthly outflow was the largest since inception in 2007.
  • According to BullionVault and COT data, speculative bets against Gold are the highest since 1999. The recent commercial short position was at its lowest since late 2008.
  • We have the majority of sentiment indicators showing more pessimism than in 2008.
  • There is an explosion in negative news coverage.
  • There’s news that major banks have downgraded their outlooks.

Physical Gold

Anecdotally speaking, we see confirmation of sentiment at a major extreme. With this kind of sentiment I’d have thought Gold would be trading at $1450 or $1500. Without knowing anything else, you’d expect Gold to be down considerably, yet it’s only off about 5% year to date and 10% in the past three and a half months. Most important, Gold hasn’t even broken support! . Even Silver hasn’t broken its support.

Gold:Dollar Ratio

In addition, Gold is showing a bit more strength when priced against the other currencies. A simple way to chart Gold against the inverse of the US$ is to use the currency ETF UDN. If Gold was in real trouble then we’d see greater weakness against the other currencies. This chart and the preceding chart tell us that we can attribute some of Gold’s weakness to US$ strength.

It’s clear that anyone who doesn’t believe in Gold for the long-term has sold and judging from the sentiment indicators, Gold is now in much stronger hands than when it was trading at these prices at the 2012 and 2011 lows. Thus, if Gold is able to hold this support and turn higher, it should approach $1750 to $1800 faster than one would think.

Gold Mining Stocks

Could the mining stocks be leading Gold lower? It is possible but the HUI has bounced from major support at 337 which we identified several weeks ago….

Conclusion

The precious metals complex is arguably at its most bearish sentiment since the start of the bull market 12 years ago. Either the bull market is over or this will prove to be a tremendous buying opportunity. At the same time, Gold hasn’t even broken support or made a new 52-week low. It shows you the amazing strength of this bull market. Despite all of the bearish sentiment, the panic and bad-mouthing, Gold (and Silver) has maintained its consolidation.

This year will go down in history as one of the best buying opportunities for both the metals and the stocks.

1. Gold Miners Have Hit Rock Bottom Bargain Value – Now’s the Ultimate Buying Opportunity!

gold mining

Looking at the recent Gold Miners price action and crash-like conditions, I cannot hide my excitement. As we judge the recent cyclical bear market within the longer term secular uptrend, we can see that Gold Miners are becoming very attractive. Whether it is the technically oversold levels that only occur a handful of times over a generation, the rock bottom valuations on nominal or relative basis, or the extreme sentiment that the overall sector is going through, all of these indicators point to one conclusion: we are fast approaching a major buying opportunity.

…Even in these challenging times there have been many great winners in the natural resource sector. I have been fortunate, lucky or smart to have racked up some nice gains through the years. I have been consistently picking winners, big winners, monster winners for years – a string of 10 years of 500% plus winners and more, sometimes much more, year after year – …[so] my message to you is simple: follow me! Your only question should be “Which of my current positions will be the next big winners?” Words: 804; Table: 1

As with most small cap sectors, someone approaching silver juniors faces a lack of good information and massive company-specific risk that cries out for either months of in-depth research or immediate diversification….Madison NJ Pure Funds hopes to solve that problem by offering instant exposure to 26 names with the introduction of their PureFunds ISE Junior Silver Small Cap Miners Explorers ETF (SILJ).

5. With Gold Stocks Suffering So Badly Should You Sell Out or Buy In?

gold nugget

Gold stocks are down between 20% and 30% over the past year yet, in that same timeframe, the price of the gold has risen. As a result, sentiment toward gold stocks is pitiful. Even diehard gold bugs are tired of losing money in gold stocks and have been dumping their shares in disgust. This article discusses 4 main reasons I can think of why gold stocks might be so cheap.

6. Finally the Final Bottom in Gold Stocks Is Coming – Finally!

gold mining

The mining stocks have been a disaster if you’ve invested in the average fund, GDX or GDXJ and if you’ve invested in the wrong stocks, they’ve been a total disaster and you will now hate the sector forever. We’ve certainly been surprised by this protracted struggle. In my articles you’ve heard me talk about accumulating on weakness, buying support, being patient and waiting for better opportunities. Folks, this next week is one of those opportunities. The gold stocks are setting up similarly to the bottom in 2005 [and, as such,] are set to test a major bottom and could be on the cusp of a major reversal.  Let me explain. Words: 438; Charts: 3

7. Goldrunner Update: Gold, Silver & PM Stock Sentiment Sucks BUT the Fundamentals Are Off the Wall!

gold-silver

Sentiment in the precious metals sector is in the toilet yet the fundamentals for the sector are off the walls positive.  That is not secret, but it is what creates huge market moves in the direction of the fundamentals. In fact, market management will never move price against the underlying fundamentals for too long a period of time.

8. Gold Bulls Shouldn’t Buy Gold Stocks!

Gold_intro

With the Bank of Japan’s latest move to fight deflation and seemingly to start another round of global competitive currency devaluation, it…makes sense to hold some gold in a portfolio. However, I remain of the opinion that it makes no sense for gold bulls to hold gold stocks over bullion. [This article explains why that is the case.] Words: 281

9. The Good News – and Bad – Regarding Gold, Silver & PM Stocks Going Forward

crowne-gold-silver-bullion_l

As we begin 2013, there has been an important shift in regards to precious metals…the decoupling that has taken place between the equity market and the precious metals complex…[which] began nearly 17 months ago (decouplings of three or six months are not significant). Since the Euro crisis in summer 2011, the equity market has rallied nearly 30% and reached a five-year high, but gold stocks are down by more than 30%…[and, as such,]  precious metals cannot begin an impulsive sustained bull move if the equity market continues to move higher. The equity market has to struggle with resistance and begin a mild cyclical bear move. While over the near-term precious metals can confirm a higher low, the 2013 success of the sector depends on the struggles of conventional stocks.

11. Keep the Faith – This Bull Market in Gold STILL Promises to Be One for the History Books! Here’s Why

BULL

Seeing the S&P 500 outperform gold and seeing gold stocks get decimated…has been enough to create suicidal sentiment…in the precious metals (PM) sector…but, as the many calls for an end of the PM bull market…[are expressed,] the risk in the PM sector gets lower and lower. The bigger picture hasn’t changed and isn’t going to for some time [so] keep the faith and hold onto your PM sector items tight. Don’t let the short and intermediate-term noise distract you from what STILL promises to be a secular bull market for the history books. The Dow to Gold ratio will hit 2 and might even go below 1 this cycle. [Let me explain.] Words: 873

12. Gold Stocks Go Up Dramatically In Inauguration Years – Will Another +20% Increase Occur This Year?

Gold_intro

President Obama will be sworn into office for a second term on January 21 and that’s good news if you own gold stocks. Why? Because gold stocks, [as represented by the XAU] have increased, on average, by 20% during inaugural years since 1985 (28% in 2005; 36% in 2003). While there’s no real rhyme or reason as to why gold stocks thrive in inauguration years – statistical anomaly or otherwise – it is yet another reason to buy gold stocks right now.

  1. The question now is what percentage of ones un-needed resources should be invested in PM for say 5 years? My guess is 40% or more!
