- Gold looks technically superb, and the fundamentals look even better.
- Inflation is rising in China and the West, the dollar looks shaky against key fiat competitors, and a reversal in American money velocity is imminent.

- The next COMEX options expiry day is March 28. Gold has a rough general tendency to trade a bit sluggishly ahead of option expiry days, and that appears to be happening now.

- I call this technical picture the “uptrend of champions”.
- For a closer look at the price action within the uptrend channel, please click here now. Double-click to enlarge. There’s an inverse H&S bottom pattern in play on this four-hour bars chart.
- For gold, all my technical lights are green, and once this option expiry day is out of the way, the “Queen of Assets” should make a beeline towards the $1265 area highs!
- Please click here now. Double-click to enlarge. Against the yen, the dollar looks horrible. Note the action of the 50DMA and 100DMA moving averages. A sell signal seems imminent. That’s good news for higher gold price enthusiasts.
- Please click here now. Double-click to enlarge. Against the Swiss franc, the dollar looks like a train wreck. The moving averages are flashing a sell signal, and that comes after a meltdown from an H&S top pattern.
- Please click here now. Double-click to enlarge. The euro is rallying strongly against the dollar, and it looks set to stage an upside breakout from both a triangle and inverse H&S bottom pattern.
- In regards to global stock markets, please click here now. It’s clear that for their stock market action, the Western gold community should be selling America at a profit and buying Asia.
- American bank stocks are the one exceptions to that “rule”; banks will prosper as rates rise. They will do a lot of lending to Europe and to Asia, because that’s where the higher growth is going to take place.
- Please click here now. Double-click to enlarge. That’s the INDA stock market ETF, and the price action is superb.
- From an emotional perspective, Western gold bugs (including myself) tend to get very nervous about US stock market sell-offs. We tend to wonder… “Is this the big one?”
- Having a tremendous floor of positive fundamentals can help to alleviate those concerns. Those fundamentals exist in China and even more so in India.
- Please click here now. Double-click to enlarge. That’s another look at the Indian stock market ETF, this time against the American SP500 index.
- I expect this massive outperformance of India versus America to continue not just for months or years, but for decades, and perhaps for the next 100 – 200 years.
- Please click here now. Double-click to enlarge this fabulous short term GDX chart.
- It’s very important that all gold stock investors do not get overly carried away with price action that is mildly disappointing.
- The bottom line is that gold stocks soared on Janet’s third rate hike, and are now treading water ahead of options expiry day for gold.
- There’s a flag-like pattern in play for GDX and many key senior gold stocks. The volume pattern is excellent; volume is rising on upside price action, and declining on downside price action.
- If most gold stock investors are honest with themselves, I don’t think they expected to see QE tapered to zero, rate hikes in play, with gold and gold stocks doing well!
- Please click here now. Double-click to enlarge. On this daily bars chart, GDX looks great. There’s now a buy signal in play on the 5,15 series of moving averages, volume is superb, and my 14,7,7 Stochastics oscillator is roaring higher. All lights are green for the world’s ultimate asset, and for the great mining companies that dig it out of the ground!
