Long-Term Outlook For Gold Remains Very Positive (GLD)

gold coins

From Streetwise Reports: Technical analyst Jack Chan charts the latest moves in the gold and silver markets, which he says are still exhibiting long-term buy signals despite flat performance as of late.


Our proprietary cycle indicator is down.

The gold sector is on a long-term buy signal, however. Long-term signals can last for months and years and are more suitable for investors holding for long term.

In contrast, the gold sector is on a short-term sell signal. Short-term signals can last for days and weeks, and are more suitable for traders that are nimble to get in and out of positions quickly. It’s important to note that investors can be tactically bearish but long-term bullish.

Looking at long-term historical data, we find that speculation favors overall higher gold prices.

A recent pullback on the U.S. dollar is supportive for the metals, although the dollar has rallied significantly off its yearly lows.

Silver is on a long-term buy signal.

SLV is also on a short-term buy signal. Short-term signals can last for days to weeks, and again are more suitable for traders.

A look at speculation levels favors overall higher silver prices.


Overall, the precious metals sector is on major buy signal. The cycle is down, however, as consolidation continues. COT data is supportive for overall higher metal prices. We are holding gold-related ETFs for long-term gain.
