I think Joe deserves to retire with dementia, oops I mean dignity, in his eighties.
Gold and Silver Stocks
This week the gold and silver stocks have performed in a mediocre manner in comparison with physical gold.
A few stocks have performed well and even though many have ended the day in the green, the percentage increments have been limited.
Although the RSI’s (relative strength index) of many stocks have indicated over 50%, a generally good indicator to buy, the supporting indicators are not confirming a buy at yesterday’s close.
I suspect that should we get a sustained upward move in the gold and silver prices, we will get confirmation to buy stocks.
It does look like we are getting a cup and handle formation on the ASA:$Gold chart below, which bodes well for future gold and silver stock prices.
A look at @TheBoyPlunger chart in the next section may explain why.
Gold and Silver
Here’s an interesting view of the gold price from @BoyPlungerTrade, that the inverted oil price precedes the gold price by twelve weeks or 85 days, he then proves its accuracy with the chart below. So his expectation coincides pretty much with ours at this time. We expect long term hold, medium term hold, short term out.
As one would expect, gold production has increased over the time period of the chart below.
The chart is of interest as it reflects the geographic as well as political changes that have led to increased or reduced production from each location.
I look at the huge production of gold in South Africa over decades and wonder where the spoils of those trades now reside. The country now certainly does not reflect those riches.
Central banks, because of their coordinated action, for the most part, are now buying gold. We watched gold prices being suppressed by central banks selling their holdings.
I wonder why prices are not soaring whilst this buying spree prevails?

Gold’s low of the week was $1,976.00 and the high was $2,078.00, now trading at around $2,037.00.
- The monthly chart for Gold is a hold.
- The weekly chart is a hold and returning to better levels.
- The daily chart is indicating a buy this morning, but I would wait for the open to verify.
The low for Silver this week was $24.62 and the high $25.90, trading around $25.53 at present.
- Silver on the monthly chart gave a sell last month and has reversed to a buy. It looks like it has a good run ahead of it.
- The weekly chart is a hold, still in its trading range, looking overbought.
- The daily chart is a sell, so out of the market. It is back inside the long term trading range and looking positive but no buy yet.
