Gold Forming Huge Long Term Cup and Handle Flag Pattern

Right now gold has been basing for almost 7 years while the majority of short sighted investors chase momentum into bubble like areas in financial stocks, tech and housing despite the record valuations and despite the warning of a market that has been on its longest run since the roaring 20's which preceded the Great Depression.A little junior I featured a few months ago when it was trading at pennies has just broken through the $1 mark on a world class lithium discovery. A few months ago when I first did the interview many analysts were skeptical now the big banks have jumped on board.

Top Gold Exploration Team in Nevada Trading at Huge 50%+ Discount

Gold could be about to breakout into new 10 year highs when looking at in Canadian dollars and top gold explorers in the best mining jurisdictions will come back into favor as the producers can not replace their reserves. Stick to teams with track records like this team in Nevada. It starts life as an attractive explorer with a proven exploration team, a portfolio of promising targets in mining-friendly jurisdictions, and ~$4 million in cash. Its shares are heading to 90 cents, Beacon Securities said. Its currently trading at more than half off that below 45 cents.

3 Junior Miners in USA Making Big News at PDAC in 2018

Here we go again as this time of year brings a lot of hype to the mining industry as tens of thousands of people from all over the world come to Toronto to present their goods and services at the PDAC convention. Its not uncommon to pay $300+ for a hotel room to hang around the Toronto Convention Center and go to a bunch of parties. However, the more experienced junior mining investors are aware of what has been termed by many the "PDAC curse". The PDAC Curse is becoming more widely known when there has been more selling coming out of the conference than buying. However, things may have changed these past couple of years and we are seeing some bullish reversals coming out of PDAC.

Gold Is Almost Ready To Make the $1400 Breakout!

I recently went to the Money Show conference in Orlando and saw a lot of buzz around crypto currency and cannabis but very little about lithium, cobalt, zinc, copper and precious metals. Notice the pricing in lithium and cobalt is surging. Gold is on verge of huge breakout at $1400. Remember the days struggling companies would change there names to dot coms? Now they are adding blockchain to their names to dupe investors into the latest fad. Well I'm not falling for it and either should you! Stick to the metals and commodities just beginning to breakout into multi year highs. Look to early stage explorers and developers known as junior miners with top tier assets and management teams with track records and are debt free.

Multi-Year Breakout in Gold at $1400 Could Boost Junior Miners

“We see a breakout at $1,400 in gold, which could mean new multiyear highs,” said Jeb Handwerger, editor of GoldStockTrades.com, which offers a newsletter focusing on mining exploration companies. Gold futures haven’t topped $1,400 since 2013. A decline in the value of the U.S. dollar has recently helped boost dollar-denominated prices of gold, but Handwerger pointed out that “many investors have been diverted away from mining into much more speculative areas like blockchain and cannabis.” “Even investment conferences and newsletter writers who were once gold bugs are now cryptocurrency gurus,” and this is very similar to 1999 when gold bulls became dot-com gurus,” he said. “Eventually, we will have another gold rush possibly even bigger than the late 70s but possibly more like the 30s.”

Silver Stocks May Be Cheapest Opportunity In Decade

Gold miners have kept in line with gold bullion and stocks so far this year. Copper, zinc and palladium have outperformed both stocks and gold. However, silver and silver stocks have lagged behind but I believe they could not only play catch up but they could far surpass the gains of these other metals as their is a record short that may soon have to cover if the US dollar finally breaks down. Silver may be the cheapest and best opportunity in the market right now from a value perspective. If you notice the silver to gold ratio has not reached this high since 2008 and 2002.

Three #InterestRateHikes Then “Stumble” into #Gold #Silver #JuniorMiningStocks

Now that the Fed has met and increased interest rates for the third time, I expect more capital to rotate from overvalued stocks to the junior miners similar to what we saw after the dot com crash. This bubble in stocks could be on the verge of a precipitous fall which could abruptly wipe out the capital chasing stocks higher into nosebleed levels. Bitcoin and paper currencies are losing favor while gold and silver may come back later this year and certainly in 2018 when many of the major producers are set for a supply shortfall. As stocks correct and treasury yields rise with rising inflation more investors will flock to our illiquid junior mining sector seeking tangible assets for protection and a hedge against hyperinflation.

Zinc Hits 5 Year Highs: Is This Canada’s Next Zinc Producer?

An exciting metal breaking into 5 year highs is zinc at $1.30 per pound. Its still way below its pre credit crisis highs at $2 but it looks like it could be headed there later this year. Smart investors are scrambling around for the top zinc assets which can get into production in mining friendly stable jurisdictions. At the end of December I saw some of the smartest mining investors the Lundin and McEwen Family putting seven figures into this new zinc company whose Chairman built Blue Pearl, Thompson Creek, Wheaton River... in the last commodity cycle. He has over 35 years of experience. These stocks he built went from pennies to ten+ dollars per share with a billion market cap. I believe this could be one of the top zinc assets in North America. This asset has 4+ billion pounds of zinc at a time when producers were shutting down.

Why Trump Will Be Good For Precious Metals and Junior Miners

This strong US dollar in relation to other collapsing currencies has made it very difficult for miners and explorers over the past few years. The dollar is hitting a 15 year high making it very hard and expensive for our mining and manufacturing sector. That could change quickly under Trump as he has already committed to taking on other nations who have been devaluing their currencies to gain a competitive edge with trade.
