Here’s what it means for gold & silver in both the short-term and the long-term…
Our proprietary cycle indicator is down.
The gold sector is on a long-term buy signal. Long-term signals can last for months and years and are more suitable for investors holding for long term.
The gold sector is on a short-term sell signal. Short-term signals can last for days and weeks, and are more suitable for traders.
Open interests have dropped drastically from the current pullback, now reaching levels of previous bottoms.
USD—a potential head-&-shoulder topping pattern is in progress. A breakdown on the dollar will be very supportive to the metals.
Silver is on a long-term buy signal.
SLV is on a short-term sell signal, and short-term signals can last for days to weeks, more suitable for traders.
Speculation in silver is now at levels of previous bottoms.
The precious metals sector is on major buy signal. The cycle is down, as the multimonth consolidation continues. COT data is now supportive for a bottom in metal prices. We are holding gold-related ETFs for long-term gain.
