A Golden Correction for Long Traders

Gold and gold stocks have had a nice controlled correction over the past 9 days. We look to be nearing the bottom of the bull trend channel, which could be a great buy point. If gold has a reversal around this level, then it would make for a low risk buy signal. But there is one issue, which really concerns me, which I will explain later.

Gold Stocks - HUI Chart

Gold stocks continue to pull back but are showing signs of support as they performed better than gold today, which is a bullish sign for gold. Also the Stochastic indicator has hooked up, indicating a short term reversal could be in store. Gold stocks still have a long way to fall, if they are to reach the support level. I don't think they will pull back that far before reversing but only time will tell.

Gold Correction is Bleeding - Spot Gold/ GLD Fund

Gold looks to be having a controlled correction as it drifts back down to its support trend line. I mentioned a couple weeks ago that gold looked like it was topping and we will look to buy at support. Now gold is down near support and we are waiting for some type of bounce for us to enter long. Gold still looks to be in a strong down trend currently, so don't get too excited yet. The one thing that is concerning me is the back that gold is bleeding down. What I mean is that each day it opens and slowly runs lower and lower and lower. This is the same feeling that crude oil has been giving me for the past several months. This type of price action indicates to me that there is big money being pulled from gold while retail investors (small traders & investors) are buying. A few things hint to this and that is the open interest for gold, the recent performance of gold stocks and of course the price action of gold. Gold has been selling down with the broad market, which is a VERY weak sign for gold. This leads me to believe that gold could breakout down through this support trend line and slide to the $800-850 level. If this happens,we could see gold move sideways for 12+ months between the $700 - $1000 range similar to the price action in 2006 and 2007 before making another leg higher.

Silver Looks to be Shining

Silver looks like it may have found a bottom here and bounced higher today. Because it is not viewed as much of a safe haven, it does not have as many traders pulling money out, this moved higher with the broad market and other base metals today.

Precious Metals Trading Conclusion:

Gold stocks and silver look ready for a bounce, but gold continues to look weak. Because of gold's popularity, I expect that once it starts to rally, it will pop quickly to the $1000 area for another ram at moving above that major resistance level.
