6 Weeks Ago I Projected That Gold Had One More Curve Ball to Throw Us & Here It Is!

Back on December 21st Toby Connor suggested that Gold probably had one more curveball to throw us before the final yearly cycle  bottom which would see it set a new low at around  $1630 a couple of weeks thereafter. Given the events of today Connor was right on the money, Below is a recap of that December article with rationale for his forecast. Words: 350

Below are edited excerpts from Toby Connor’s (www.goldscents.com) original article* entitled STOCK MARKET BREATHER & GOLD YEARLY CYCLE LOW.

This article is presented compliments of www.FinancialArticleSummariesToday.com (A site for sore eyes and inquisitive minds) and www.munKNEE.com (Your Key to Making Money!) and may have been edited ([ ]), abridged (…) and/or reformatted (some sub-titles and bold/italics emphases) for the sake of clarity and brevity to ensure a fast and easy read. Please note that this paragraph must be included in any article re-posting to avoid copyright infringement

Connor’s article goes on to say, in part:

The gold market has been  rather confusing of late…[but,] with the benefit of hindsight, it’s apparent that the yearly cycle low that I was expecting sometime in April or May has been moved up to correspond with last year’s D-Wave  bottom [and, as such,] there is a possibility that that  yearly cycle low bottomed yesterday [December 20th]. It appears to me, however, that we had a  daily cycle low 10 days ago [December 11th] and, if that’s the case then, after a short-term  bounce, gold may make one more move to marginal new lows….

The normal  duration for a gold daily cycle is about 18-25 days. Unless this turns out to be an extremely stretched daily cycle then gold  probably has one more curveball to throw us before a final yearly cycle  bottom. On the plus side the rally out of a  yearly cycle low tends to be the most powerful rally of the year. In  this case if we were to get one more marginal new low to say around  $1630 in the next couple of weeks that should be the end of the selling  and I think gold will easily test the $1900 level during its next  intermediate cycle. [DCL in the chart below stands for Daily Cycle Low.]

Conclusion

For those of you still holding positions  in the precious metals market I would strongly advise you to not lose  your position in the next couple of weeks if gold does make another  marginal new low.

If you are back in cash I would advise waiting to see how gold reacts as the stock market launches out of this short-term correction.

gold-silver

One never knows exactly where Precious Metals are going so I always try to keep in mind a list of items that are probable based on the facts that are evident.  I call this “what we know” and “what we don’t know”  so let’s take a look what we “know” and “don’t know” at this point in time.

2. I Will Not Turn Bullish On Gold Until 1 of 2 Things Happen

gold-correction

My forecast — despite all the hate mail and pressure I get to change  it — has not changed. Based on my systems and models, I will not turn bullish on gold until either spot gold has closed above $1,823 an ounce on a weekly and monthly  basis – or gold cracks the $1,527 level and plunges to the $1,400 level or a tad lower. I know that’s not what you want to hear. I know that you are as eager  as I am to see the next leg of gold’s bull market begin….[but its] time to shine is not here yet. It will come again so stay the course, build up your ammo, and be ready to pull the trigger when I issue a headline like “Back Up the Truck, NOW!”

3. Up or Down? Precious Metals At Important Crossroad

Inflation_Deflation2

Precious Metals are now at an important crossroad….Over the last several quarters, this sector has under-performed against equities as well as bonds but that might change very soon [as it is at several key decision points as to whether it goes up or down. Let me explain.] Words: 1080; Charts: 10

4. A Plea From Jim Sinclair: You Are Being Played – Do NOT Give Up Your Gold!

gold-truth

The paper gold market is being used to shake the bullish tree harder this time than any time before because of what is to come.  Fear is the most powerful emotion in markets and it is being used perfectly to enrich the grand names of finance at your expense. We are right in front of that time when the market performs a classic bottom both in shares and physical. From this point gold is going to and through $3500 [so] if you are unable to buy at this time there is one thing you can do – to get into the fight and out of the stands. That act is do nothing, and do not capitulate. Let them play the price game, but give them nothing whatsoever of yours. Words: 758

5. Jim Sinclair: This is War – Don’t Play Their Game – Stand Firm – Stay the Course – Gold is Going to $3,500!

gold-truth

There is a nasty game taking place which relies entirely on scaring you out of your wits. Yes, out of your mind, so you sell something of great value for peanuts to the exact party playing with your head via price. When you must look at the action, remember there is a buyer for every seller. That buyer is not scared out of his/her wits if you sell to stop the pain you are in. This period is, in my opinion, the last and largest attack you will see perpetrated on us before gold closes over $3500. This period of pain will not be measured in months, but counted in history as days. Stand firm and stay the course! Words: 787

6. 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.

7. Equities Should Outperform Gold in the First Half of 2013- Here’s Why

investing1

I expect gold to move sideways or trend down in the first half of 2013 [and, as such,] I would consider this as a good opportunity to buy gold as there is still no long-term fix in place for the economic and financial problems [that the U.S., and indeed the world, face. Here’s why]. Words: 665; Charts: 5

8. Gold Miners Watch: Much Further GDX/HUI Weakness Could Result in a MUCH Further Decline – Here’s Why

gold mining

GDX is currently at approx. 42 but should it drop below the 39 & 40 levels reached last May and July our analysis shows that a good deal of sellers could come forward and push GDX a large percentage lower.  That double bottom needs to hold in GDX!!! Take a look at the chart below and you will clearly see why that is the case.

9. 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

10. 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.

11. 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.

12. 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

The timing of this article may seem incongruous given the current weak performance of gold and gold stocks but that was the identical situation in each of the past manias – both the metal and the equities didn’t excel until the frenzy kicked in.

All fundamentals and opinions are useless in the markets because they pertain to timing, and timing plays a huge role when investing/trading….[and only] put one’s belief system into a context with regard to the market[s]….It does not matter what others say about the market; what matters is what the market says about others. The market is, and always will be, the final arbiter of all “facts” and “opinions.” [This article give an update on exactly what the charts are currently saying about gold and silver.]
