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.

3 Junior Miners Attracting Interest as Gold and Silver Finds Support at 200 Day Moving Average

Due to Hurricane Matthew and the Jewish New Year I was unable to post updates on the current gold market. However, it is important to note some important developments in our sector. It appears that there was distribution in the precious metals this week during light holiday trading with Hurricane Matthew affecting the Southeastern US where there are a lot of precious metal investors which exacerbated losses taking gold, silver and the junior miners to oversold levels like we have not seen since late 2015. I expect to see a basing around the 200 Day Moving Average which gold and silver have been hitting. This could be great news as that may signal a major secondary buy point for what I believe could be the next major bull market in precious metals fueled by a weak slowing economy combined with soaring government debts and negative interest rates.

Gold and Silver Pulling Back To Support, Could Fed Meeting Next Week Boost Junior Miners?

It appears that gold broke its downtrend and 200 Day Moving Average in early 2016 forming a bullish golden crossover in February. Then in June gold broke 2 year highs and has since consolidated to the breakout point at $1300. Its quite normal after making such bullish breakouts to hold at that level before the next leg higher. This summer gold has taken a breather pulling back to uptrend support. It may still base until the Fed decision next week providing what may be looked back upon as a secondary opportunity for those who missed the Brexit breakout in June.\ Gold and silver both have rising 50 and 200 day moving averages which are bullish showing an upward trend. Notice rallies have been on increasing volume showing possible accumulation. It broke out into new 2 year highs in June following Brexit and has since consolidated returning to the breakout point. This past week it made a weekly bullish engulfing pattern which may signal a short term reversal to the breakout technical target of $23.50. The move may accelerate higher after the Fed announcement next week.

Precious Metals Pullback To Uptrend Provides Buying Opportunities in New Bull Market

This is turning out to be one of the most powerful rebounds in gold and silver's recent history. For a long time I have advocated patience and fortitude with respect to wealth in the earth assets and continued to find the top performers in the junior gold mining sector. Those that have stuck with me are positioned now for this great run as I believe that this is the beginning of a major new bull market. I have warned you for weeks now that new investors in juniors should wait for pullbacks to rising moving averages rather than chase. The miners were beaten so low in this bear market that like a compressed spring bounced so hard so fast that a healthy pullback to upward sloping 50 and 200 day moving averages like we are seeing now is quite healthy and restorative. Here are three top junior gold miners to watch.

Majors Should Look at Advanced Stage Junior Gold Miners Nearing Feasibility

(Originally Published and sent to Premium Subscribers (6-2-16) It appears the Junior Gold Miners (GDXJ) are giving the investment community a secondary buy point on the now ascending long term moving averages as they bounce off and find support at these critical technical levels at the 50 and 200 Day Moving Averages. I thought we could still be a few weeks away from a bullish reversal but it appears some of our featured sponsors and shareholdings are breaking out.

Returning To A Gold Standard: Why Gold and Silver are Beginning This Historic Breakout

For years I have been highlighting precious metals as a store of value and high quality gold explorers and developers with the potential to leverage those gains, despite them being completely out of favor. Seeing a historic irrational correction in gold and silver, exacerbated by manipulation from several banks, I continued to highlight the virtues of patience and fortitude. I also tried to teach the virtue of ignoring the news and the mass media whose attempt is to make you off balanced and misdirecting you to sell your precious metals so you can buy into inflated stocks/sectors on the verge of their own crash like Bre X, Enron, Counrtywide and Bernie Madoff.

Junior Gold Miners Breakout As Fed Does “One and Done” on Rate Hikes

The junior gold miner ETF (GDXJ) broke out of a handle that was formed near its one year high around $27 after the Fed stayed put on interest rates and stated there may only be two hikes instead of four this year. This should continue to be bullish for precious metals, commodities and the junior miners. I believe we are in a new bull market for junior miners that has followed a five year historic rout in junior resource stocks. The early stages of a new uptrend are when some of the greatest gains can be made.

Did Precious Metals and Junior Gold Miners Just Bottom?

Huge amounts of institutional capital may be flowing into the major gold miners such as Barrick, Newmont, Kinross and Agnico Eagle which have all seen big moves off of December lows. There is an increasing probability that we saw the bottom at the end of 2015. Major investments have taken place recently in the junior sector specifically in uranium (URA), Gold (GLD) and Lithium (LIT). Fission (FCUUF), Gold Standard Ventures (GSV), Orocobre (ORL) and Oban (OBM) have all recently raised large amounts of capital. This could be just the beginning as other high quality situations may find the critical cash needed to advance mineral projects.
