  • Fascinating chart on the *day divides the night* blog on tumblr, concerning the Gold to Monetary Base ratio--we have a long long way to go, in this bull run, regardless of any short term corrections.

    Try to run, try to hide... LOL

    Well, the ole air came outta the balloon--as we head toward that 9 gap. Never a dull moment. If you chart SLV and BGEIX on the stock chart site, they look like twins. Of course nobody can read the future, but one thing that is guaranteed in miners is extreme volatility.

    That gap on the weekly chart around the April 4 2016 week looks inviting after we have now broen through the 200 day moving average. Well, for bulls it is not very inviting, but there will be a correction at some point and that will be likely the stopping place of LEAST damage.

    The gap between the April 4 and April 11 weeks is just below 9. We are sitting at over 10.50 to end April..

    Since the Yahoo message boards began nixing links they have pretty well folded. BGEIX has a long history and has performed better than the well known XAU and HUI for the last 20 years.

    20 and above is not out of the question by 2020--alliterative fun. By then how many more trillions of debt will we rack up under Hitlery and how much more of that Ponzi debt be owned by Auntie Janet or the next banksta puppet? Cyberspace is our limit in debt and BGEIX share price!!

    The gold stocks are already very overbought…and if they continue higher unabated, then we will have to worry about a potential sizeable correction. The chart below shows GDX’s parent index (GDM) along with two oscillators which plot its distance from its 100-day and 200-day exponential moving averages. The oscillators show the gold stocks are the second most overbought they have been in the past 22 years. The most overbought point was early 2002 when GDM corrected 37% before climbing much higher.

    Before we worry about a sizeable correction, let me point out some very important data. The 2002 correction began when GDM and HUI rebounded 212% and 311% respectively from the major low in 2000. Thus far, the two have rallied 100% and 128% respectively.

    Furthermore, the gold stocks are only three months removed from what could be the greatest buying opportunity of all time in the sector! While this is a sensational statement, it is rooted in data and facts and not your typical gold bug doomer porn. In short, there are three major similarities between the recent bottom in the gold stocks and the 1942 low in the stock market which arguably proved to be the greatest buying opportunity ever.-Jordan Roy-Byrne-

    Update--XAU 71% above its 200 day MA and HUI 74% above its 200 day MA. Insane, but of course the whole decline of the last several years was too. Paybacks are not good for Shorty. Great WE to all!

    "Here is another statistic to show how crazy gold fever has become again. The XAU index at 86.90 as of the close yesterday (Thurs, April 28th) is a whopping 60% above the 200 day simple moving average. That's insane and is not sustainable! As far as I can tell from the daily chart of XAU that has never happened in the last 20 years. NEVER!"

    From a message borad above by somebody in JDST. I just looked and its about 68%. Oh well--this is the space age, i suppose.

  • jshaef1 by jshaef1 Apr 29, 2016 8:48 AM Flag

    Double digits at least for a day--10.03 (4.27.16 close)--the 200 day MA is 10.24. We closed a gap from early Sep 2014 (all of this from the weekly chart). Note, also, there is a gap recently starting around 9. Looks like a likely area to be filled on the coming pull back.

    So we are off the leper colony island that we have been on since 2014 in BGEIX--I've shuttled over $40K during this rally into Capital Preservation Fund. Yes I would buy a little back,around the gap below 9. Does taking profit mean I have to turn in my special tinfoil hat?

    Seriously, I would always keep 25% in BGEIX in non-crazy times--I've got more now--and even in the stratosphere I can envision holding some; cutting back to 5-10%. I'm not insane like the bankstas who worship reward free trashuries and other dirt nap instruments of death that they foist upon us!

    What do I know?--but the test will come eventually--10.24 is the 200 day MA for BGEIX as of the close yesterday (on the weekly chart). Could be resistance. Funny how the Yen and Gold move together--the most indebted nation's monopoly money is gold's twin? (LOL)

  • jshaef1 by jshaef1 Apr 27, 2016 3:25 PM Flag

    If I had to guess, i would expect the usual post Fed meeting paper gold selling dump to come on the COMEX sometime tomorrow morning--you know where a couple 'bill' of sales of contracts are manufactured out of thin air by some banksta agents of the Fed and aren't they all banksta agents? There has to be a big test at some point.

    Besides all those heavily short banksta commercials have always got to pass go and collect their bucks, no matter what. By the way, what is the difference between commercials and speculators on the paper exchanges anyhow? None that I can see. All fraud 24/7!!

    "Gold stocks have rallied by approximately 110% between mid January and mid April – something that obviously doesn’t happen very often...
    Lastly, one has to be prepared to see a “faith-testing” correction at some point. This is something that also tends to happen with unwavering regularity, and has yet to happen in the mining sector."

    Here we are in Fed Week--time to get b-slapped by Auntie and her banksta buds.

    Not like its something new or unexpected.

    In the battle being waged between Truth [physical gold and silver] and Lies [all paper contracts], the indestructible PMs will always prevail, and the time is nearing. On Thursday, at the peak of the rally, and during yet another Draghi lie called a press conference, “someone” dumped over $2 billion in paper gold onto the market. That is 16,000 paper contracts, with emphasis on paper contracts for it sure was not physical gold that was being dumped. For silver, around 7,500 contracts were sold at the same time.

    How much more blatant can the central bankers be? How much more will be the effect of such stupidity? Holders of the physical know very well what is being “sold” is useless paper, not the real metal, and as with QE-t0-infinity, bankers have pretty much run out of “fixes.” These are definite signs of the end game for PMs’ suppression.--M Noonan

    Gold:BGEIX at 127.89 low for this week. Big picture for that ratio is that it reached all the crash goals I mentioned in early December and then some. Now one can hope that the 200 day MA of 139 will be resistance or taking into account a bigger correction, possibly the 50 day MA somewhere around 170 or lower on the weekly chart. RSI (14) well under 30 for the first time since 2003 testifies to the strength of the miner rally. Let's hope we can get used to it.

    "Someone just decided this was the perfect time to dump over $2 billion worth of notional paper gold onto the markets.." (ZH--yesterday--Bankstas still trying to rain on our parade--we'll see if they fail at some point) At least JPM is sitting there with vast silver holdings--according to Ted Butler--so someday let's hope they get to cash in.

    From Wall St. on Parade this week:

    ["It’s important to parse the phrasing of that sentence. The Federal regulators didn’t say JPMorgan could pose a threat to its shareholders or Wall Street or the markets. It said the potential threat was to “the financial stability of the United States.”]

    But wait--aren't they the ones with all the silver (see Ted Butler articles)--well so much for the financial stability of the ole USA :).

  • The negative interest rates are creating a real crisis. This was the real reason why Yellen met at the White House. We are moving toward the realization that the central banks have created an impossible situation from which there is no escape. Keeping lower interest rates because all levels of government are hopelessly in debt is wiping out the pension funds.--M. Armstrong

    The federal deficit is over $100 trillion when factoring in all the entitlements that are left off the reported amount.

    19,226,226,489,207.18 is the public reported amount now. I guess having a good amount of a "pension" is not so crazy based on the dislocation that rising interest rates will eventually cause.

    "jshaef1 • Dec 9, 2015 9:32 AM
    Next stop for gold:bgeix ratio is 132--currently at 184, down from 205 high. RSI (14) has not been below 30 since 2003, on this ratio--a loooong time! I expect it to get below 30--it is now at 52.37--this is all based on the weekly gold:bgeix on the sharp charts site."

    Update 4.12.16: Gold:BGEIX ratio at 134.74, well under the weekly 200 day MA that was around 132 when I commented on 12-9. The RSI (14) is below 30 for the first time since 2003 at 29.51.

    Though I have lightened up some on BGEIX, it is only to claim some of the profits. Yes there will be a correction and yes the curling up 50 day MA in BGEIX should now provide support. Last rally that looked remotely like this was 2012 Jul-Sep but RSI was not as strong then.

  • jshaef1 by jshaef1 Apr 11, 2016 12:15 PM Flag

    Looks like we may see 30 on the BGEIX 2 week relative strength index today--or at least close. letting go $7.5 K of BGEIX into the close. Still have lots and will hold through any correction that seems closer now especially if we get to 30 or below on the BGEIX RSI (14)--for the first time since 2003. Would hope that the now upward sloping 50 day MA would be support--around 6.70 at the close of last week. The 200 day MA on the weekly chart is now around 10.34 (close last week). That will be resistance if we don't stop before that.

  • jshaef1 by jshaef1 Apr 9, 2016 6:56 AM Flag

    Banner week for the Gold:BGEIX ratio as it broke below the 200 MA for the first time since 2011. Next to fal,l may be the two week relative strength index which hasn't reached 30 or below since 2003--weekly RSI 14 is very close now at 31.64.

    BGEIX made it to 9.05 a couple of times in early 2015 in its sideways period after the big multi-year crash and before what we hope is the multi-bottoming period we have just pulled out of with this rally. All the more looking at the chart to hope for the 200 MA of BGEIX, now curling up at 6.70 and rising to be support for any pullback, especially if we reach the 30 RSI goal in the ratio.

    At least there is some hope now for the long suffering miners (since 1995 to be honest). The Gold:BGEIX ratio closed in the low 40s in 2003 and 2006 It was also lowest in 1996 and 1997 around 50. Sounds like a good target!!

  • jshaef1 by jshaef1 Apr 3, 2016 6:34 AM Flag

    Obviously in correction mode here. Ditto what I said a while back:
    If the retest finishes higher—like the 6.95 I mentioned, we have a powerful born bull.
    If the retest is near or lower than 6.40 we may have to wait for this to develop, if it does.

    No doubt that eventually any move down will develop quickly when it does. Never a dull moment here.

    6.67 is now the 50 day MA--if we have a bull you would want to see the 50 day be support and it has actually curled up a little for the first time since early 2014--not significant in itself but worth noting. If we can see the 50 MA as support (weekly chart) and we can get over 9.75, then maybe we have something--probably will wait a while--commentary sparse until then. All the best to anyone stumbling into here :)
