Risk of Lower Lows in Gold Remains Prior to Spectacular Rally to Follow

By David Brady, CFA

Last week, I provided the fundamental background for why I believe the risk of lower lows in Gold remains, based primarily on USD/CNY breaking the critical 7 threshold. I also provided the rationale for the enormous rally to follow, driven by a reversal in policy by the Fed following a stock market crash and the subsequent ultimate peak in the dollar, including USD/CNY.

This week, let’s take a look at the technicals, sentiment, and positioning in Gold to see if it counters or complements the fundamental thesis.

TECHNICALS

Gold is currently heading higher in a bearish flag pattern. It could continue higher to resistance between 1251-1255 before heading lower again. Support is at 1200, also the previous closing low. A break down could open up a move down to 1184, 1160, or even 1124 next.

1251 is the key resistance area on the upside. It is the 38.2% retracement of the closing peak at 1360 in April and the closing low of 1184 in August. It is also the 50% retracement of the decline from the peak at 1377 in July 2016 and the December 2016 low of 1124. We have to take out 1251 in order to become any way bullish.

Then there is the 200-day moving average, at 1266 currently. A level watched closely by the Bullion Banks and the Algos. Through there, and the path back to new highs since 2016 becomes clearer.

I am already long ‘physical’ Gold (and Silver bullion) since August 2015 and have been adding ever since. I’m waiting to add more on a break of key resistance or at lower lows. However, if you don’t hold any Gold (or Silver), I recommend you buy “some” now, because it is only a matter of time before Gold heads multiples higher, in my humble opinion. (By “time” I mean within the next 1-3 years, but I believe it will start rallying in earnest in 2019, perhaps as early as next month.)
