Gold Price Breaks Down, Waving Good-bye to the 2019 Rally

Commodities / Gold & Silver 2019 Nov 12, 2019 - 07:32 PM GMT

By: P_Radomski_CFA

Commodities

Our summary of the current situation in the precious metals is not going to differ much from what we wrote yesterday, and the reason is simple. The decline in gold, silver, and miners is developing just as we’ve been expecting it to. Most importantly, gold has just confirmed its breakdown and everything that we reported on gold’s outlook and price targets just got a huge confirmation.

Let’s take a look at what gold, silver, and mining stocks did in the last couple of days.


The Recent Days in PMs

Gold broke below the lowest closing price of September and it just verified this breakdown by closing below it for three consecutive trading days, and that includes the weekly close too. That’s a clear way for gold to say that a relatively broad top has been formed and that lower prices are going to follow.

Silver broke not only below its September low, but also below its rising red support line and the 50% Fibonacci retracement level. Technically, silver’s breakdown was even more important than the one in gold. The fact that the white metal managed to close the week below the combination of three support levels is bearish, but it will become much more so only after it’s verified.

  • So, isn’t it best to wait for the breakdown in silver to be confirmed, before aiming to profit on the decline?

That’s one way to do it, and if anyone wants to take this route – sure, it’s their capital. We think that having a position open right now is better from the risk to reward point of view because of the confirmed breakdown in gold, and because of multiple signs that we have covered in our previous analyses, and that we can’t discuss on each day – there’s simply not enough space and time to again go through all the bearish factors that remain in place right now.

It is usually the case that three consecutive closes below a certain level are necessary for the market to verify the breakdown, but given how strongly correlated gold and silver are, the odds are that a slide in gold will trigger a powerful slide in silver as well. And gold’s plunge could start any day, hour, or minute.

  • Ok, but what about the miners’ strength? They just moved higher yesterday, even though gold didn’t.

That’s true, but it’s also true that they did the very same thing just several days ago, during the previous pause. On November 5th and 6th, miners moved higher on an intraday basis even though gold rallied only once in intraday terms. Moreover, November 5th – the first of the small, two-day, corrective upswing - was the day when the HUI opened lower but then moved up during the day. That’s exactly what happened on Friday – the first day of the current, two-day, corrective upswing.

Given the above similarity and the very bearish follow-up that we saw on November 7th (big plunge across the precious metals’ board), it’s hard to view miners’ performance as bullish. Besides, if the miners are really showing strength here and the decline in gold and silver continues today, then the former will easily repeat their supposedly bullish signal, indicating a local bottom. At this time, such a scenario seems doubtful.

The gold market has been declining just as we expected it to and it’s likely to decline some more before we see a bigger turnaround. Knowing when to exit a short position and when to enter a long one is the essential part of making money on this move. They say that the universe does not reward one for what they know, but for what they do with it. The clear price targets and profit-take details for gold, silver, and miners included in the full version of today’s analysis – our Gold & Silver Trading Alert – are the actionable part that savvy traders really should take into account right now.
