One of the most telling patterns in Gold over the past 6+ months has been the “washout low” price rotation pattern after establishing a momentum price base.  It seems as though every time Gold completes one of the moderate-low price rotations, as we call it a “washout low rotation”, it sets up for a new momentum rally to a new momentum price base.

We believe July and August 2020 could prompt a series of these types of rotations as Gold attempts a move above $2100 or higher.  Allow us to explain our thinking as we explore this price pattern a bit further.

The first thing we need to realize is that Gold is nearing the $1900 level as it continues to push higher.  This is a very significant level for Gold because it would be very close to breaking the 2011 all-time high level near $1917.90.  As gold creeps higher because of perceived risk factors in the global markets, once Gold price levels break above $1850, then the rally to levels above $1900 is almost certain to drive investors into the precious metals markets at a much faster pace.  Psychologically, once Gold rallies above $1850 with the US stock market trading near all-time highs – something has to break. The disconnect between Gold (risk protection) and the valuation of equities (the stock market) are not aligned.

GOING ALL THE WAY BACK TO 1973

If you understand how the US Fed and global central banks are pumped “ether” into the markets (in the form of capital and QE functions) in an effort to support the capital markets and financial sector, then you understand the current market environment is very unique.  The only other time we’ve seen anything like this is in early 1976 through 1981 when the capital markets were suddenly awash in credit and precious metals rallied more than 700%.  This was a period when global traders realized the risk factors in the markets while credit was expanding and the US stock market was just starting to recover from a deep -50% collapse (1973~1974).

What happened in 1973 & 1974 was the US economy went from a booming stock market (+15% in 1972) and booming GDP (+7.2%) to a grinding halt with GDP clocking in a -2.1% and the DJIA collapsing over 45%.  Additionally, inflation skyrocketed from 3.4% in 1972 to 12.3% in 1974.  How does this compare to today’s markets?

UNDERSTANDING STOCK MARKET VALUATIONS TO GDP LEVELS

Last year, 2019, the SPX rallied over 27% and US GDP levels were clocking in a 2~3%+ (expected).  One measure we like to use in trying to make comparisons to the past is the stock market valuation level compared to GDP.  Even though this St. Louis Federal Reserve Chart does not show data beyond 2017, just imagine what the peak level of this chart would look like for 2018, 2019, and early 2020.  The current level was very likely well above 155 to 165+ before the February 2020 COVID-19 collapse.

These past correlations become very important for skilled technical traders because it helps us to understand the future potential price rally in Gold and Silver if a similar set of circumstances play out.  If the COVID-19 pandemic collapses global GDP while the US Fed and other global central banks continue to pour capital into the credit/banking markets, resulting in an inflated global equities/stock market bubble, and the global stock markets enter an earnings/income contraction phase (much like 1973 & 1974) while inflation grows moderately, we could expect to see Gold continue to rally for the next 3 to 4+ years and attempt a 500% rally from current levels.
