All the fundamental factors that have made gold such a stellar investment for the last decade are still intact…[but] there are several things that have been affecting gold negatively over the past few months, much to our dismay. Words: 367
So says P. Radomski (www.SunshineProfits.com) in edited excerpts from his original article”.

Radomski goes on to say, in part:
One of them is the dollar’s strength against the euro and gold’s recent tendency to move inversely to the dollar and in line with more risk-linked assets. This has undermined some of its safe-haven appeal. You can observe that for example in the HUI Index. Gold stocks are not only declining, but they once again do so faster than gold.
A look at the HUI Index chart (charts courtesy by http://stockcharts.com) below shows that the miners have moved lower…[and are now] below the 400 level. This is an important and bearish development.
[What is currently happening] is in tune with what was seen in 2008 but the declines and rallies are less volatile this time as they are taking more time to play out. Nonetheless, the bearish implications remain, and mining stocks’ investors should seriously consider limiting exposure if this has not yet been done.
[A look at] the gold ratio chart…[below shows] that the ratio declined heavily last week. This means that gold stocks declined much more than gold.

The ratio also had a pullback in 2008 – consequently, what we have seen since May is not overly surprising. The trend remains down and right now we appear to be in another wave lower within a bigger downtrend.
To finish off today’s essay let us have a glance at our in-house developed technical indicator that was designed to detect extreme situations on the precious metals market.
Looking at the SP Gold Stock Extreme #2 Indicator above we see that it has suggested at least a temporary rally in the mining stocks – the indicator moved below the dashed line…Maybe more short-term rally will be seen or maybe not – at this time, it is unclear in our view….
Summing up, the outlook for the mining stocks is bearish for the medium term. The short term is a bit unclear.

Gold is exhibiting 2 distinct patterns both of which suggest that if the support lines in both patterns are breached we could have a sharp decline in the price of gold to the level of $1,345 – $1,400/ozt.

Due to the severe financial crisis in Europe, capital will continue to take refuge in the U.S. Dollar and gold and silver will collapse to US$1,380/oz. (Fibonacci Retracement 61.8% level) and US$18/oz. (Fibonacci Retracement 76.8% level) respectively, in the third quarter of 2012.
The gold bubble is about to burst…the decisive move is coming within weeks!
