Jordan Roy-Byrne – “Constructive Action in Gold & Silver Stocks”

 

 

 

 

 

In our most recent editorial we concluded by observing a few positives in the gold and silver stocks. W concluded with: “Their performance over the weeks ahead could give us an early hint as to how much longer the correction will last.”

 

 

Fast forward another week and a few positives has morphed into a handful of positives.

 

 

First let’s look at GDX. In the chart below we plot GDX and its advance decline (A/D) line.

 

 

GDX has essentially corrected for two months and it has yet to test the previous resistance zone at $24 to $25. It has bounced from $26 several times and established good support there. So it’s holding its gains.

 

 

The A/D line had been showing a positive divergence with its higher lows to GDX’ lower lows. However, this past Thursday the A/D line made a higher high. GDX itself isn’t close to making a higher high. That is a strong positive divergence.

 

 

Meanwhile, the silver stocks have perked up quite a bit in recent weeks. In the chart below we plot SIL (silver stock ETF), SIL against GDX and SIL against Silver.

 

 

SIL has enjoyed a strong rebound since its low in mid November. The ETF is now much closer to its September peak than GDX.

 

 

SIL relative to GDX just closed at a 5.5 month high. The ratio is about to close above its 200-day moving average for the first time since early 2017.

 

 

Here are two more positives.

 

 

GDXJ has strongly outperformed GDX in recent weeks.

 

 

Also, Friday, the jobs report beat expectations which is bad news for precious metals. Yet, precious metals traded higher. What does that tell you?

 

 

The only potential negative is the speculative long positions in Gold remain stubbornly high. More time is needed to flush out some longs before Gold can sustain an advance.

 

 

With that said, the relative strength of the silver stocks and the juniors (GDXJ) gives me confidence that the stocks are ultimately going to lead Gold higher. In other words, we should take our cues from the miners.

 

 

These various positive developments argue that the worst for this correction is probably over. If the correction were going to deepen in price or time, then silver stocks would not be leading and gold stocks would not be holding support levels and showing strong breadth.

 

 

A move to a breakout may not be imminent but as long as the stocks (GDX, GDXJ, SIL) continue to hold recent lows then a bullish consolidation could be forming which would eventually lead to a breakout.

 

 

We have been focusing on identifying and accumulating quality juniors with significant upside potential in 2020. To learn the stocks we own and intend to buy that have 3x to 5x potential, consider learning more about our premium service.
