Dear Extended Family,
A quote from CIGA Eric today completely encapsulates what we are experiencing in the gold market:
This is a repeat of 2009 – actually even more extreme readings than 2009. We are severely oversold today. Anyone not buying here does not believe in the fundamental story. In my opinion, this will be a huge entry point by 2012.
In conversations with Kenny we examined the worst case scenario in terms of the correctness of Eric’s comment with which we both totally agree.
Our conclusion is:
Market situations like this will be found to have held and created bear traps in several instances of similar pattern action over the past 30 years WITHOUT having continued further down to first major support. The current corrective pattern over the past 23 trading days strongly implies that the move below $1690 would continue on down to the core at $1665 at minimum as first bottom, and in the extreme to $1615, but not below $1584. This will happen prior to exhaustion and a return to the full bull trend.
So far the remaining successive levels of $2450/$2510; $2850/$2900, and $3280/$3330 are not affected.
Gold shares are being impacted by a field of problems as a result of the large short positions held in almost all. They are being taken advantage of today by pressuring the entities in hopes of causing long term holders to collapse in their commitments.
