The fashionable call right now is that the big momentum names like Facebook, Priceline, Tesla, Netflix, etc. are leading the market into a new bear. I on the other hand think these stocks are just pulling back in preparation for one final mind blowing surge to top off this five-year bull market.
Gold on the other hand looks like it is setting up for a final bear market capitulation phase where every gold bug finally throws up their hands in disgust and jumps over to the stock market right as it's putting in a final bubble top.
It's now been a year since gold broke through that $1520 support zone and gold has yet to ignite a new bull market move. We've had two very convincing bear market rallies but both have rolled over at that same $1400 level. I'm afraid this has probably so demoralized precious metal investors that when we get our next test of that sub $1200 level later this month there just aren't going to be any buyers left to defend that level. A third test of that support will almost certainly end in a break and final violent capitulation down to the next support zone at the 2008 high a little above $1000.
|I have noted in previous reports gold
is now moving down into an intermediate degree bottom, and this
intermediate bottom will also be a larger degree yearly cycle bottom.
The magnification of those two larger degree cycles coming together at
the same time should create an exceptionally violent and aggressive move
over the next 4-8 weeks. The risk is very high that gold is going to
break that double bottom support over the next 1 to 2 months, and when
it does I don't think anything will stop the decline until it reaches
the next major support zone a little above $1000.|
That's the point at which investors that have available cash will get the third great buying opportunity of this secular bull market. The first two delivered amazing gains as they came out of their bear market bottoms.
This coming bear market bottom will be no different, and it might be even more intense than the other two as it should kickoff the final 2-3 year bubble phase of the secular gold bull.
For those that have the mental fortitude to buy at the impending bottom when it looks like the entire sector is going to collapse forever, this is where millionaires and billionaires will be made.
Remember bear markets create opportunities. The bigger the bear, the bigger the opportunity. Just look at the recent bear market in stocks as an example. At the bottom in 2009 the stock market bear was the second most damaging in history. It generated a five year bull market that has rallied 185% and I don't think it's done yet.
Once the current counter trend rally is finished, and I don't really expect it to get through resistance at $1320-25, gold should head down into its final bear market bottom.
