Gold Bullish or Bearish

Recommended Posts


We interrupt this busy gold trading thread with some golden spam

Be Afraid of Getting Out

While we disagree with the concept of Gold as a valid  fear hedge, we do not disagree that market participants view it as such. Our point is merely that Gold, an imperfect hedge  for almost every issue concerning a lack of faith in human judgment, is a poor hedge for short term "flights to safety" or "fear hedging" simply because it is not a large  market.

...

Gold: Not Perfect, but Perfect for You

In a world where there are custom financial hedges made for every specific risk and marketed in ETF form, there is only one generalist product that covers risk in all foibles of human kind making those instruments of mass destruction., Gold. We'd rather  be 70% hedged against everything than 100% hedged against a "nikkei rally in italian bond  terms" using some triple vol etf.

Investing in Pet Rocks is Dumb

We also strongly disagree with any characterization of gold as an "investment". Investments are vehicles in which one expects a rate of return. The investment community should not consider gold as an investment any more than it considers money an investment.  Investments offer a potential return based on value added to raw materials or machines used.   

Suggested Gold Holding Time Frame: Do you really have to ask?

Gold is a hedge against paper FIAT debasement, and as such it should be held as long  as one  holds, earns, or spends, paper currency. The holding period is forever. The percentage held in gold is the variable.

Gold is also a trade-able asset and thus can be a wealth creator. We believe every bank that touts gold as a safety mechanism knows this and trades gold counter the momentum types.

Barbarous Relic or  Timeless Store of Wealth? YES

So for our 2 cents: Gold is not an investment. Gold is not a hedge against fear or a flight to safety, gold is not to be treated as a reliable hedge against stock market corrections. Gold is a hedge against protracted bear markets  that are underpinned by FIAT debasement damaging corporate earnings. ... Finally, Gold is not officially money. That is to say gold is not money by FIAT (order), but is de-facto money .... It is also the only universally accepted means of exchange across nation-state borders. It is a store of wealth

Golds is money that is all. Gold is not currency again... yet

another interruption in this busy thread...

If you started in the 1990’s  prophesizing over and over again about a massive build up, and then crack up collapse, of fake ‘systemics’ ...  and if the ruin part didn’t happen yet. would you be ‘wrong’ ?
Here’s an example https://usawatchdog.com/trend-is-clear-rapid-decline-of-world-economy-egon-von-greyerz/
Is he wrong?

...


And what if you started prophesizing that this time gold may not ‘save you’ like it has in past ‘global’ implosions? Would you be wrong?

Currently, it is bullish in fact The 70s were an amazing time for gold and the mining stocks, as they went on a mega bull run and generated astronomical returns while the stock market floundered. However, by 1980, the price of gold peaked at over $800 per ounce and then entered a 20-year bear market.

From 2001-2011, gold went ballistic again, going from $250 per ounce to a peak price of $1,900 by the late summer of 2011. Most investors know what happened since then - gold collapsed and has spent the last 5 years in the $1,200-$1,300 range (with a brief dip to $1,050-$1,100 back in 2015).

With the weakness in the sector last fall, many wondered if gold was about to fall back to $1,100, or worse, hit triple digits.

In fact, several months ago, I was receiving many emails from subscribers and followers, asking me if this might be a repeat of 1980-2000, which would make this only year 7 of a 20-year bear market.

Just the thought of that! What an incredibly sinking feeling for whatever bulls that remained at the time. There seemed to be a real fear of this possibility.

    • Brain Trend 2 Is a short term signals indicator. It is used for intraday trading. Brain Trend 2 identifies the short term trend using Williams percent R indicator and average true range. When a short term trend is confirmed by the indicator, it plots semaphores on the bar to show the trend. Bars with red boxes indicate downtrend and bars with blue boxes indicate uptrend.   When a trend is identified, open positions in the direction of the trend. When red boxes appear open short position. When blue boxes appear open long position. It is more effective when coupled with other indicators. A moving average can be used as a trend filter.  Set the moving average period to medium term or long term like 50 or 100.   BrainTrend2.zip
    • #EURUSD #ANALYSIS #Forex #followme #socialtrading The EUR/USD pair fails to hold on to recovery gains as it trades near 1.1070 ahead of the European session on Wednesday.   The US #IndustrialProduction and #CapacityUtilization failed to please the #USD buyers as better than forecast prints of the ZEW Economic Sentiment for Germany and the Eurozone gained major attention. Also adding to the pair’s strength was the market’s risk recovery after Saudi Arabian diplomats showed readiness to overcome the recent damages due to drone attack within few weeks. Furthermore, news of the New York #Fed injecting funds through repo market and trade-positive headlines concerning the US, China and Japan also tamed the earlier #risk-off momentum.   #Traders have been #cautious since the start of Wednesday with eyes on the US #FederalReserve’s monetary policy meeting announcements up from 18:00 GMT. However, fresh trade/political headlines help extend the latest risk-on. As a result, Asian stocks report gains and the US 10-year Treasury yield remain around 1.80% by the press time.   Considering the high probability of the US Federal Reserve’s 0.25% Fed #rate, investors will be less surprised unless the US central bank offers less/more or no rate change. As a result, details of the quarterly economic forecast, press conference by the Fed Chairman #Powell and Fed’s Monetary Policy Statement will be the key to predict near-term market moves. The European Central Bank (#ECB) has recently shown its dovish bias and hence any hawkish statement from the Federal Open Market Committee (#FOMC) could be harmful to the pair’s latest recovery.   On the economic calendar, final reading of August month Consumer Price Index (CPI) from the Eurozone and the US housing market numbers could offer intermediate moves ahead of the Fed decision.   #TechnicalAnalysis Not only a falling trend-line since late-June, at 1.1090, but the 100-day exponential moving average (EMA) level of 1.1167 also could restrict pair’s near-term upside, which in-turn highlights 1.1100 and recent low surrounding 1.0925 as key supports.
