Premium Snippets


Quick note on GDXJ. Should bulls be worried that GDXJ is lagging? 

In 2009 Bob Hoye used GDXJ's data to create a history of the index. We circled the 2008 bottom and points 1 and 2. Recall how GDX bottomed in October then made a double bottom or higher low in November. According to this chart, GDXJ bottomed in November, not October. Two weeks later GDXJ retested its November low even as GDX was trading well above its low. 




So I'm personally not concerned about GDXJ's relative weakness as a bearish big picture indicator.

After all, a person much smarter than me said that Gold is the key. Honestly, he was right. Gold was right in the summer. It was right at the bottom in 2008 as it moved back above $900 quickly yet the stocks were trading as if Gold was at $700. Gold made a marginal high in 2004 as the stocks corrected. Gold was right as the sector surged into the end of 2005.

Gold looks really good as long as it holds above $1250 in US$ terms. Gold is surging against foreign currencies. Its nearing a 2-year high against the foreign currency basket. Its not just strength against the Euro and the Yen. Its showing strength against almost every major currency.

Meanwhile, the US$ index is surging but showing extreme bullish sentiment. Looking at the past 15 years we see that's public opinion is 91% bulls and at an all time high. The daily sentiment index recently touched 98% bulls.

Take a look at the chart below (which I created a few minutes ago and will put in the next premium update). We plot the US$ index and show three oscillators which mark the index's distance from its 10-week, 40-week and 80-week exponential moving averages. The greenback is extremely overbought on all time frames. In the past 20 years the greenback was this overbought only three other times. Those times were late 2000, late 2008 and early 2010. Looking at the three oscillators together, the only times the greenback was more overbought was in 1984 (its all time high) and 2008 (height of the financial crisis). 



The US$ is not only due for a correction but a pretty big one. What will happen to Gold and precious metals when the greenback corrects? If the greenback corrects for several months then it might be enough to push Gold above key resistance at $1350.

In TDG #397 we provided near-term downside targets for the various indices (HUI, GDX, GDXJ) as well as technical updates on our favorite stocks. We also wrote a brief intro report on a very tiny exploration company (sub $10M market cap) that has a high grade resource (with good expansion potential) in a good jurisdiction.
