S&P 500 exceeds 4200
Looking to break sharply higher
Another >US$30 intraday move. And a breakout from the last wedge after gold picked up the Oct 2022 uptrend.
Gold is still at or very near all-time highs in most other currencies.
But the market sentiment is eerily quite neutral because gold stocks were weaker, and the follow-through in silver was quite muted. But as has been pointed out, gold is technically ready for another sharp move higher.
World Gold Council has published some excellent global data on central banks and gold ETFs.
Katusa Research has compiled some of the data into this graphic showing:
Central bank cumulative purchases since Jan 2020 have totaled ~US$65bn
ETFs have been net sellers over this time
Helps explain the lack of enthusiasm in the gold market despite record gold prices.
This was a very nice breakout from that wedge, as earlier suggested.
The evidence suggests that the high in US$ gold in May was actually a B Wave.
And followed by five Waves down in the C Wave to complete Wave 2 and return to the Oct 2022 uptrend.
And then we had this breakout.
Expect gold to backtest to around US$1,950 on this graphic, and then we should get moves to new highs.
Bounced off the uptrend quite nicely.
The U.S. dollar is still rallying with a near-term target of 105.
A pullback from 105 might be the trigger to push gold much higher.
The big four currencies, Euro, Yen, Sterling, and Swiss France, have all broken major, major long-term uptrends and seem to be heading much lower over the next few years.
Gold prices in these currencies are right now at all-time highs or very close, and they are confirming the long-term bear market in those currencies.
Gold stocks continued lower today despite the move in gold bullion
It still seems they were completing their five-Wave C Wave for the low in Wave 2.
Gold stocks should soon start Wave 3
Zone of maximum acceleration
Next stop 165 on the XAU
5 Waves down here. Expect a strong bounce once the downtrend is broken.
XAU is now on Oct 2022 uptrend as well as at some longer-term horizontal support.
Gold ETF interest might be poor, but so is gold stock sentiment.
The Elliott Wave Count here is still very bullish.
And as ever, the only time markets are overly bearish is in a Wave 2, particularly when those awful C Wave declines occur.
XAU seems to be completing a mini Wave 2 within the green labeling, but Green Wave 3 should start very soon.
Long-term gives >100% upside in XAU.
Katusa Research also published this figure which is the cumulative flows into Gold Miner ETFs.
This graphic is suggesting that no new funds have flowed into the sector since 2017 despite all-time highs in US$ gold prices. Again indicating it is just very early days in this gold bull market.
Short-term strong technical support:
July 2020 downtrend
Sept 2022 uptrend
Horizontal support at around 6700
Need to keep repeating the big picture here:
7700 is important long-term resistance
Clear 'Neckline' for Head and Shoulders reversal.
Target is around 12,000 as intermediate after passing 9888 previous all-time high
Over 20,000 longer term
XGD has completed 5 Wave C Wave to complete Wave 2
The big picture supports a MASSIVE rise in the XGD.
The requirement to sell bonds by the U.S. Treasury is very large, so long-term supply looks gargantuan, but in the meantime . . . that big rally is still setting up.
Yields to fall:Island reversals here againSigns of a strong move to comeIt should be lower!
And hereIt will be big if it does happen
Timing is everything.
Heed the markets, not the commentators.
