Gold Bottom? – Current Thoughts for 5/1/2018

As I wrote in my last Current Thoughts from April 11th, 2018, Gold Not quite Ready for Blast Off, we got the turn lower and are now in a better position to make some purchases.

Here is what I wrote then;

Were just not quite ready for blast off on gold just yet. The dollar was falling when gold was moving up and that low it hit today at 89.39 might have been it for now. This has been about as slow a move as possible for gold to get going and each time it hits this level, it fails. Rather frustrating for those who want the move now, but gold and silver buyers will have to be patient. This year will be up and down and I still believe a deflationary crash by October, then we’ll be off to the races. In the medium term into the summer, I do see a rise, then that fall into October. In the micro term today was probably the high for a bit and one more move lower possibly before we finally break that 1377 level. Trapped a few more bulls today I think. Dollar down -.10 presently to 89.48.

It looks like that’s exactly what happened. Now I am writing again as I think we get a big move up here in metals and miners, even though we may still have one smaller move below 1300 to possibly 1280. I am not putting as high of odds on that, but the dollar has surprised many with its strength, and gold with its weakness that it is a possibility. Silver is also getting hit hard  hitting 16.02 today.

Part of that bigger move down can be blamed on lack of demand as we haven’t seen these kind of lows in buying coins from the U.S. Mint since 2007.

I see that nice move up developing now into the summer before the October crash. Traders can take advantage of it. Make sure you watch here on the turning points I see as I have been calling the ups and downs quite well. I’m not just a one sided; dollar is going to crash, buy gold, kind of advisor. I bring more to the table than that and I hope you benefit from it with the timing of your purchases. This is definitely one of those buy the dip times. I explain what is coming next in the updated for 2018 version of Buy Gold and Silver Safely.

Needless to say, there are 3 ways to make money: work for it, inherit it, or invest wisely. The latter is what we try to help with.
