screaming-buyGold has hit the ground running in this young new year, a stark contrast to its brutal post-election selloff.  Rather remarkably, these strong recent gains accrued despite literally zero buying from one of gold’s most-important constituencies.  The American stock investors who almost single-handedly fueled gold’s strong bull market last year are still missing in action since the election. 
That means big gold buying is still coming:

sunsetThe gold miners’ stocks are rocketing higher again after suffering a rough few months.  Following sharp selloffs on gold-futures stops being run, the Trumphoria stock-market surge, and a more-hawkish-than-expected Fed, this battered sector had largely been left for dead.
But gold stocks’ strong fundamentals finally overcame the dismal herd sentiment last week, paving the way for this sector to shine again in 2017:

trump-goldGold has a cyclical tendency to decline ahead of a rate hike, and rally after it is announced.
This time, the US election may delay the rally, but create one that is bigger and more sustained than the rally of 2016. Here’s why:

boxing-smash-on-ropesGold has suffered brutal, withering selling pressure in the month following the US presidential election.  The stock markets’ surprise surge after Trump’s surprise win has led speculators and investors alike to rush for the gold exits.  As usual the former group’s extreme selling came largely through gold futures.  But this gold-futures dumping has been so severe that it is rapidly exhausting itself, a bullish omen for gold:

silver-mineThe junior gold miners’ and explorers’ stocks have been crushed in recent months, collateral damage from enormous gold-futures selling.
That’s naturally left investors and speculators extremely bearish on gold juniors.  But lost in all this technical and sentimental tumult are important fundamentals from the juniors’ recently-reported third-quarter financial and operational results, which proved quite strong and bullish:

silver moon rocketMost investors and speculators today aren’t paying attention to the gold miners’ strong fundamentals.  Instead they are all wrapped up in the fearful prevailing sentiment.  That’s a big mistake as always.  While gold-mining operating profitability will decrease in Q4 if gold prices remain low, gold’s young bull is far from over. 
When it starts powering higher again on weaker stock markets, gold stocks will soar…

hyperinflationDonald Trump’s epic underdog victory climaxing the US presidential race was radically unexpected by the great majority of the world.  Equally if not more surprising was the subsequent days’ market reaction.  Stock markets, gold, and gold-mining stocks did exactly the opposite of what was universally forecast for a Trump win.
This has left contrarian traders wondering how gold and gold stocks will likely fare under Trump:

bull-marketThe gold miners’ stocks have certainly had a wild ride this year.  After initially skyrocketing out of deep secular lows into a mighty new bull market, they recently suffered a massive correction climaxing in an extreme plummet.  This coincided with gold stocks’ major seasonal low in October.  That heralds their strongest seasonal rally of the year heading into and through winter, a very bullish omen for coming months.

rocketGold’s early-October plunge on futures speculators’ stop losses being run has naturally left this metal mired in battered technicals and bearish sentiment.
But that sharp selloff has already accomplished its re-balancing mission.  The excessive gold-futures trading positions that triggered that stop running have already reversed, and the investors fueling gold’s bull are starting to buy gold again.
Gold is green lighting its next upleg.

Precious metals expert Michael Ballanger discusses the uptick in gold and silver miners and the Deutsche Bank gold bullion settlement.
One of the more striking developments in the bizarro world of gold and silver trading has to be yesterday’s settlement between Deutsche Bank and a class-action group that alleged that the bullion banks (DB, Scotia and HSBC) were manipulating the physical and Comex silver futures market since 2007; what is laughable and disgusting is the size of the settlement—$38 million.

screaming-buyThe gold miners’ stocks are suffering from universal and overwhelming bearishness today, with nearly everyone expecting further selling.
That’s the natural reaction following this sector’s recent massive correction, which climaxed in one of its biggest daily plummets ever witnessed.
But within bull markets, there’s no better time to buy aggressively than deep in a major selloff that’s riddled with great doubt and fear.

manipulation smash bombCARNAGE.
Gold, silver, and their miners’ stocks plummeted out of the blue this week, shattering their bull-market uptrends.  Gold-futures speculators had been holding excessive long positions for months, weathering all kinds of selling catalysts.  But once gold slipped through key support, long-side futures stop losses started to trigger unleashing cascading selling.
Understanding this event and its implications is crucial for traders…
