A look at the Gold and Silver Charts (09.05.2024)

Buffet Indicator chart
Market crash coming 2024

The Buffett indicator above shows the ratio of the value of the total US stock market to GDP. It uses the total monetary value of all publicly traded company shares and divides the GDP into it. 

It provides a macro perspective on whether the market is over or undervalued.  

The indicator right now is 199% or two standard deviations from the norm. 

Can it go higher?

Of course.

Does it show that we are much nearer to the top than the bottom?


Here I put my head on a block. If this was not an election year in the US I would say the stock market is exceptionally vulnerable sooner rather than later.

 But, it is an election year so I guess by hook or by crook they will keep it afloat until after the election.

This means a probable interest rate cut or cuts, when in reality the opposite is needed. It means massive inflationary money printing.

 It means the plunge protection team (President’s Working Group on Financial Markets) with unlimited funds will be holding up (interfering in) the markets.

There will not be a good outcome. I think what we are seeing is a precursor to CBDC’s (Central Bank Digital Currencies).


BTC:GLD below shows bitcoin still underperforming Gold, no signal to buy bitcoin yet.

Bitcoin reversed its buy within a day of giving the signal. And has dropped exactly to the 50% Fibonacci retracement and appears to be bouncing off. It is battling to break upwards from here for now.

Just as a matter of interest ETHUSD still sports a sell-or-out signal.

Gold stocks are outperforming the physical metal.

Silver stocks outperform physical silver. This momentum appears to be changing.

Gold  is underperforming silver. I like this as a precursor to a sustained increase in the prices of both metals.

Gold v USD: The USD is outperforming gold but gold appears to be consolidating here. This week will be telling.

Gold’s low of the week was $2,291.00 and the high was $2,331.00, now trading at around $2,322.00.

  • The monthly chart for Gold  is a hold. We bought in at $1,800.00 and have held it to date. It looks overbought but the indicators are mainly positive.
  • The spike high is still a worry. I would like to see trading over $2,500.00, breaking the spike. (See chart below)
  • The weekly chart remains on hold.  Looking overbought but no sell yet. Subject to my worries on the spike high. 
  • The daily chart, we are out but price is consolidating.

The low for Silver this week was $26.43 and the high $27.93, trading around $27.88 at present.

  • Silver on the monthly chart indicates a hold. It needs to break $30.35 then $50.00. The signals look strong for now. (Chart below).
  • The silver weekly chart is a hold. It touched the top of the trading range but could not hold above it. Indicators still reflect a hold even though they have turned down.
  • The silver daily chart indicates out of the market. Vindicating the spike. Silver is teasing us with mixed signals not yet strong enough to trigger a buy on our system.
