Gold’s Beautiful Silent Breakout
Gold’s Beautiful Silent Breakout by Taki T for Investing Haven
When gold breaks out, it mostly does so at unexpected price points. On Friday, gold broke out on our chart(s). This was for us the trigger to flash a buy signal on the strongest mid cap gold miner. We took a position in the most promising gold miner among mid and large caps, on Friday, in our Momentum Investing portfolio.
Gold’s price chart since mid-April must have resulted in major frustration for investors.
As said many times, and as per our 100 Investing Tips For Long Term Investors consolidations are nerve wracking for investors.
- Investing tip: Consolidations are very frustrating for traders and investors. This is the type of situation in which the vast majority of investors show no patience. They then sell with a loss, only to find themselves chasing prices higher after a certain time period.
- Investing tip: Consolidations create a very bullish long term outlook for any asset or market. Essentially, during sideways trading, sellers tend to leave the market every time the price peaks. If a consolidation goes on long enough all sellers leave this market. That’s the ideal market condition for a new bullish trend.
Many gold investors have sold positions in the last 8 weeks, which is the prerequisite for this market to move higher. If bulls and bears leave the market, there is sufficient space for the bulls to do their magic.
More importantly this happened at the lower side of the rising channel (green). In other words there is plenty of upside potential after Friday’s breakout.
Note as well that a breakout may be a process. Technically, this breakout is confirmed once above 1760 USD/oz. We can reasonably expect some hesitation around 1760.
