Is the Correction in Precious Metals, Uranium, Lithium and Rare Earths Stocks Over?

It appears that New Year 2017 has brought in with it renewed interest and new buy signals in the commodity sector and the junior miners. The TSX Venture is making a parabolic move as all the shorts have dried up and a whole new group of buyers appears to be entering. The Junior Gold Miner ETF (GDXJ) is breaking a 5 month downtrend and so is the silver miners etf (SIL). Now the next technical bullish breakout is regaining the 200 DMA, which I expect to come quickly.Uranium Miners ETF (URA) are breaking out of cup and handle breakout along with the Lithium Stocks ETF (LIT) as investors look to clean energy commodities.

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.

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.

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.

Mostly all markets are in the red except precious metals and treasuries.

Is Junior Gold Miner Relative Strength Forecasting Powerful Relief Rally in January?

Looking at the chart above notice that even though gold (GLD) has hit new lows, the junior gold miners (GDXJ) are finding support and the Momentum indicators are positive. That may indicate a rebound or at least a relief rally may soon be underway in the junior miners possible following tax loss selling. December tax loss selling is always challenging in the junior markets during good times, how much more so in these historically tough times. The good news is that January is usually rally time for the junior miners as investors reposition for 2016 in beaten down names. I expect that the first three months of 2016 could be exciting for some of the highest quality names with top assets, treasury and management.
