Gold to make a 170% Plus Move in 2021!
I am back folks! Sorry for the long hiatus, but tons of amazing things occurring with my partnership with Equity.Guru. Once again, we have a free Discord Trading Room with them, go visit their website and join us by clicking on the Discord symbol at the top of the site!
My long time readers and followers know my opinion on Gold, Silver, Bitcoin and other commodities/hard assets. You want to be in them due to the approaching confidence crisis in government, central banks and the fiat money. All of which are occurring right NOW. The trade is to get out of fiat, because the currency war between central banks mean they will all try to weaken their currencies in order to boost the economy and cheapen the debt. The Middle Class loses in the end. This is primarily my reason for why Bitcoin is spiking. Yes, it can be due to people front running a central bank digital currency (CBDC) but I believe this is rather a move out of fiat.
Gold is regarded as a safe haven asset. Many classify it as a commodity. But to me, and many others, Gold is a currency. In Classical Economics theory, Gold is a currency. Gold is money. Gold has been money in any government regime. In a previous post last year, I mentioned how Gold making new highs against fiat’s like the Yen, the Loonie, the Aussie Dollar, the Euro, the Pound, the Lira and many others (way BEFORE Covid was ever a thing) was the most important sign for us versed in classical economists. It indicated that inflation, and crazy monetary policy was coming. Now I am not saying we could predict covid, but the fact is, big money (maybe even some central banks) knew something was coming down the pipeline which would force central banks to cut rates back to 0, and resume Quantitative Easing.
I am still very excited for Gold and other commodities in the long term. I want to share with you some technicals on Gold…which when last time occurred, led to a 170% plus move!
Now first things first, I have to give credit where credit is due. My technical level is similar to that of many traders, but Christopher Aaron from iGold Advisor in his latest Youtube video, highlighted the fact that this pattern happened in the past and led to a 170% plus move. Thanks Chris, and unfortunately we cannot meet in person at The Vancouver Resource Investment Conference 2021, to further develop our outlook for the future like we have in the past two conferences.
Here is a link to Christopher’s video.
So let’s take a look at the weekly set up in Gold:
A few major points to discuss here. First and first most, this 1800 zone is a MAJOR flip zone ( an area that has been both support and resistance). My arrows indicate how many times price has tested this zone. In my books, any level with more than 3 touches is super important.
Now look to the recent price action to the right.
Price has pulled back to retest the 1800 zone. Buyers have stepped in and held. Now, there are two very exciting things here which will make sense when we look at the similar pattern in a different year.
Firstly, the retest is after Gold made all time record highs. Yes, the 1880 price zone technically is the retest which failed, but look at the multiple touches at our 1800 zone. To me, this zone has much more significance.
Finally, the pattern we are developing is known as a wedge pattern. Notice how price respects the downtrend line. This pattern is bullish because it indicates price is coiling. As long as we remain above the 1800 zone on the weekly chart, the probability for a breakout is high.
So how to play this? For a better probability trade, it is prudent to wait for a weekly close out of the wedge. Once again, because this is a weekly chart, it may take sometime for it to give us this breakout.
The alternative play is entering positions now frontrunning the break. Your risk vs reward is better, but you have to accept the risk that price could do nothing. This approach would require a stop loss below 1762, below the retest of our major flip zone. This zone MUST hold for our bullish 2021 scenario.
So once again, breakout above previous record highs, retest of a major flip zone, and a wedge pattern. Looking back in the Gold markets price history, we have a set up very similar.
The chart above is the weekly chart of Gold back in 2007-2008.
So during that time, Gold did make a new record high before pulling back to retest a flip zone.
Notice the multiple touches.
Finally, notice the retest, and how a similar wedge pattern was created.
The fundamental backdrop was similar: central bank money printing and the cutting of interest rates, plus major fiscal policy.
Once the wedge broke, Gold made a 182% move (measured from the bottoming of the flip zone retest to previous record highs at 1920.
Some people may not like technical analysis, but the truth is that markets have a pattern to them and flow in cycles. What I like to call waves of uptrends, ranges and downtrends. Our job is just to find these cycles and wait for the shift.
For the Gold Bulls, this pattern is set to repeat again.
Mapping 182% from the current support retest at 1762 to new highs…the Gold price goes well above $3000.
So in summary: wedge pattern with a retest of previous record highs holding as support. If this wedge breaks, we are set to repeat a major percentage move with the same fundamental backdrop! I would say much more extreme this time around! The confidence crisis begins! The trade out of fiat will be the theme of 2021.
Oh and for my Silver Bulls! When Gold made this large percentage move post 2008…Silver went from $15 to $50. New record highs incoming for Silver as well!
