In my last report I mentioned that we would have one more trip lower in gold, and I am still in that camp. I will go out on a limb and say that this is the last trip lower we will have and could take us to the end of year. 2018 will start off with a bang for gold. There is however a chance we may begin the climb sooner than that though. When you are buying the dip as big as this one has been, it really doesn’t matter too much that you catch the exact bottom.
The potential for seeing the low on gold is when you once again see the USD/JPY over 114 (it is 112.90 now) and dollar over 94 (it is 93.03 now).
Gold mining stocks probably have one more test of the lows too.
Ideall what marks a bottom in metals and miners is sentiment down to below 10. While there are other things that can correspond with sentiment in the teens I look at, what we want to see is a day when things go south really fast in a V shape pattern and buy that bottom of the V. I’ll know it when I see it.
