S&P 500 Vs. Gold: Someone's Gain, Someone's Pain

Aibek Burabayev - INO.com Contributor - Metals


In May I recommended that gold bugs think about buying stocks for gold to enjoy the bullish momentum on the market. This call paid well as S&P 500 index almost gained 6 grams of gold (10%) since then.

In terms of dollars, the index did even better by hitting the projected target of $2650 set in the May chart. Back in those days the S&P 500 was flirting with the $2400 mark, and the target level looked so distant then.

In this post, I will update the S&P 500/Gold ratio chart and see if there is more room to the upside.

Some things become more obvious when you change your point of view. Some decisions are easier to make when we change the measure of value. And today I would like to share with you the gold bug’s view of the stock market.

The chart above represents the price dynamics of the S&P 500 in grams of gold. I used grams not ounces to make the chart more readable. You can do the same by dividing the S&P 500 value to the price of gold in troy ounces and then multiplying it by 31.1035. Continue reading "Gold Bugs Should Think About Buying Stocks"

The current market bias is positive, but there’s some concern about the chart. The S&P 500 breached its 50-day moving average (MA) on Monday before rallying, but has failed to mount any sustainable rebound, currently stuck around its 50-day MA. My concern is that failure to edge higher could drive the index back lower and continue the sideways channel in existence since February.

The absence of any strong catalyst could leave the broader market comatose for the summer months.

On the S&P 500, there is key support around 1,250. A break below would be bearish and see a move below 1,200. I expect the support to hold. On the upper end, there is strict resistance around 1,362. A strong break above could drive additional gains towards 1,400. Continue reading "An Investment Strategy For Higher-risk Periods"
