In this post, I would like to share with you the comparative dynamics of gold and top gold stocks starting from the date when the recent local bottom of gold was set at $1241 on the 7th of October, 2016 to see how top gold stocks reacted to the recent gold reversal.
Chart 1. Gold And Top Gold Stocks: Not All “Birds” Flew To The North
Back in August of this year, I shared with you the comparison charts of gold and silver stocks. The precious metals hit the new highs before that, and so did the mining stocks. After that, the prolonged correction of underlying assets (gold and silver) put pressure on the mining stocks. Below is the chart showing you the 6 stocks’ behavior.

Precious metals expert Michael Ballanger reviews a number of the key elements that have characterized 2016's advance in gold, silver and the associated mining, development and exploration stocks.
With the summer of 2016 passing by at an alarming pace, I think it is important to take a few moments away from the enchanting beauty of Georgian Bay and review a number of the key elements that have characterized 2016's breathtaking advance in gold, silver and the associated mining, development and exploration stocks.

Both of these stocks are set to go significantly higher based on the Trade Triangles and their technical chart counts.

Hello MarketClub members, well here we are at the beginning of a new trading week with lots going on. Somehow I don’t think we are going to be seeing the dog days of summer in 2016. Last Friday the major indices resumed their upward journey and the continuation pattern I discussed in my previous video. I continue to think that the equity markets can go higher, a lot higher based on the Trade Triangles and the technical formation on the charts.
I can see the DOW (INDEX:DJI) moving over the 20,000 mark in the next several months. The markets could get another boost today as one of the presidential hopefuls is going to propose the biggest tax cuts we have ever seen in modern times. Continue reading "The DOW Heads For 20,000"→
