The Physical Metals
All the precious metals – gold, silver, palladium, platinum and copper – rose this past month above their respective 65 week moving averages (see Chart 1 below) for the first time in 18 months, and it’s all happening during a roaring bull market in stocks and a solid rise in bonds. This is a great first step!
The junior gold mining shares….have been leading the rise...and since juniors are higher risk than seniors, it makes them a good leading indicator when they begin to outperform.
[Senior] gold shares [as represented by the HUI] have now also risen above their 65 week moving average, as you can see on Chart 2 below.
Gold shares fell to their lows last December…and that low ended up becoming the head formation of a head and shoulders bottom…With the HUI index currently above its 65 week moving average, and near the neckline of the H&S bottom, it shows that a bottom is likely in and if the HUI gold shares index can now stay above 234, it will be off and running!
Gold Shares Outperforming Physical Gold
Gold shares have been rising more than gold during the past month. When gold shares are better it’s saying, risk is worth it because they’re more speculative than gold itself.
Note on Chart 3 below how HUI is just starting to rise more than gold… and, interestingly, this ratio tends to form a major low every 5½ years, and in each case, gold shares rise more than gold for several years.
With its leading indicator (B) now breaking clearly above an over 4 year downtrend, it’s showing gold shares have the potential to rise much more than gold this year and next. This coincides with the 5½ year pattern!
[Given the above] we recommend buying and keeping the shares, (as well as the metals).

We are of the opinion that the miners and explorers (and their indexes GDX and GDXJ} should be “swapped” for the precious metals – gold, silver, and their proxies (GLD and SLV). This way investors will maintain exposure to precious metals while reducing their exposure to the more volatile miners as some of the share dilution and recent investor exuberance play out – and at least hedge themselves if the price continues to rise.

Is it time to throw in the towel? Is the bull market in precious metals really over? I don’t think so because my analyses suggest that nearly all of the fundamental factors that have been driving the gold price higher in the past decade have only strengthened in the past two years. Now that the correction has most likely run its course, I expect gold to bounce sharply higher. Here are 10 reasons why. Read More »

Stocks are pulling back in preparation for one final mind-blowing surge to top off this five-year bull market. Gold, on the other hand, looks like it is setting up for a final bear market capitulation phase where every gold bug finally throws up their hands in disgust and jumps over to the stock market right as it’s putting in a final bubble top. For those…that are sitting in cash, this final capitulation is going to represent one of the greatest buying opportunities of this generation. Read More »
