Silver, Gold, and Miners
Folks are calling the FED opening swap lines on the entire US Banking deposit base to the tune of $17.6 trillion as QE infinity. Moody’s cut its outlook on the banking system to negative, saying that it is a rapidly deteriorating operating environment. The market though, generally focused on one thing: CPI.
CPI came in as expected, 6.0% and softer. Core CPI though came in 5% higher. The chart shows you the areas of inflationary growth versus decline. Nevertheless, the metals shone all around.
Our GEMS Global Macro or Global ETFS Stocks Macro and Sectors model signaled a buy in gold last week. Now, gold miners, based on the strength of this sector, signaled. Monday’s Daily reported on the reasons to watch the gold to silver ratio.
A 5-year historical look at the gold to silver ratio shows a move over 90 (bullish) while our Leadership indicator shows silver performing equally with gold. That tells us that the precious metals are getting ready to roar.
Even with oil prices falling today, GDX held steadfast, and is now outperforming the SPY. Momentum has a positive divergence where the red dots are not inline with the 50-DMA (blue line). Meanwhile, the price sits below its 50-DMA, yet well above the 200-DMA or in a caution phase (improvement from a distribution phase). Should the price clear the 50-DMA in price, the phase then returns to bullish.
