Gold: Rally Or Retest $1,200; 35 Stocks For Your Bottom Fish Radar

Gold's Next Big Move?—Depends On Your Chart

Gold technicians are likely feeling woozy these days—just try and find a trend line to rely on. Up, down and all around, recent gold charts are starting to look like they were drawn by a drunk.

Gold's short-term charts have been trending down again and look somewhat bearish. The 3-month bullish up-trend from the June 28 $1,179.40 gold futures low—topping $1,400 late in August—now teeters close to August's low $1,271.80 support as it completes a bearish Head & Shoulders (H&S). We all know the yearly chart will be down unless there's a yearend golden miracle—it's first annual drop in 13-years—with gold's 2-year price now down over 31% from its 2011 $1,923 all-time high.

Zoom out and gold looks totally different. From $260 in 2001 to its 2011 all-time high, gold's long-term chart is a fairly smooth and consistent rise—however you will see two bumps in the road in 2006 and in 2008 with significant corrections of 22% and 29% respectively. Still above its long-term trend-lines, I see no reason technically or fundamentally why gold can't recover again to even higher highs.

Instead of a bearish 3-month H&S, others look back to the sudden $200 sell-off in April and see a bullish inverse H&S completing soon. The shape of the former charts seem more regular, while this chart's volume pattern may be more important. That's why technical analysis is considered subjective, although both H&S perspectives consider the August low gold price support a key level to hold.

As markets do often overshoot their trends, the sobering conclusion might be that even if gold retests $1,200, now or going into yearend tax loss selling season may be the time to Bottom Fish gold mining stocks. This is more about fundamental all-in costs, as most gold producers can't make money below that level. Many have already lowered forecasts and as they say the cure for low prices is low prices.

I also find support in knowing that the $850 1980 gold high works out to over $2,500 in today's CPI Adjusted dollars—with a whole lot more than three times as much fiat money around now. We also haven't seen a parabolic gold price spike yet—like we saw at the end of the 1970's gold bull market.
