Gold and Silver Correction Is Painful, But Exactly What Bulls Needed

Despite being off their highs from a couple of months ago, silver is still up almost $4 on the year and gold is up about $200. So it just shows you how fantastic they performed over the first 6 or 7 months of the year. This is just the beginning of the third major secular up-leg in gold and silver that we believe will take them to all-time nominal highs, well above anything that they’ve achieved before.

Silver Measures Wealth While Gold Stocks Increase It

Despite gold (& silver) & gold stocks (& silver) being connected; they operate on different cycles. It is for this reason that gold & silver bottomed around 2001, whereas many gold and silver stocks only bottomed around 2015/2016. What has been despair & disappointment, due to the lack of gold and silver stock performance, is now the reason for great opportunities.

The Most Important Reason Why Gold and Silver Will Continue to Rally

Today, though, interest-bearing assets are, in some cases, not even yielding pennies on the dollar. Bank CDs probably aren’t even yielding 1%, and Treasury yields are still bordering their lowest yields in history. What this means is that the opportunity cost of a sub-1% yield for CDs and money market accounts, or a near-record low yield for T-bonds, makes owning gold and silver more attractive.

Gold Prices Are Breaking Out; Goldman Stumped

After a long time, the Philadelphia Stock Exchange Gold and Silver Index has broken out on an absolute & relative price basis to put in what appears to be a meaning bottom that is bullish for gold and silver mining stocks. We maintain this bullish view as long as the absolute & relative price trends hold above the weekly moving averages, which should provide support on pullbacks.
