Gold Price Forecast – Not a Top, Just a Mid-Cycle Correction

AG Thorson

The initial rally out of a 6-month low can be nerve-racking…this time was no different. Gold’s entered a gentle climb higher after striking the November 12th low. It wasn’t until Christmas eve when prices finally verified a cyclical breakout.

Gold’s Breakout Confirmed

Gold confirmed a 6-month low on Christmas eve when prices closed decisively above the cycle trendline. The initial breakout surge is slowing, and we are entering the mid-cycle correction. Ideal support arrives between $1520 – $1540. Once complete, gold should continue to fresh highs.

Massive Potential in Silver

I’ve explained before how silver often lags gold at the beginning of a trend but takes the lead near the end. I think that’s happening again – silver prices should soar throughout the next advance.

Note: Silver diverged from gold and touched met fresh lows in December. The recent breakout is incredibly fresh, and a pullback here would offer an excellent, medium-term entry.

Silver Daily Chart

Silver spiked to $18.90, and it too appears to be entering a mid-cycle correction. Ideal support appears between $17.30 – $17.80 with the potential for a backtest of the cycle break line. Once complete, silver should resume the uptrend and exceed $20.00 in March.

In summary, precious metals and miners are heading into their mid-cycle corrections. After a brief pause, prices should resume their uptrends. I see considerable potential in silver and plan to add leverage as prices correct.
