GOLD BREAKOUT ON FOUR RARE THINGS SHOULD CONCERN STOCK MARKET INVESTORS, CORONAVIRUS CONCERNS

To gain an edge, this is what you need to know today.

Gold Breakout

This stock market is controlled by the momo (momentum) crowd. The momo crowd is not known for analysis. They simply buy because the market is going up. It is not a surprise that the momo crowd is oblivious to the breakout in gold on four rare things. However, prudent investors should pay attention. Let’s explore with the help of a chart.

Please click here for an annotated chart of gold ETF (GLD).

Note the following:

  • The chart shows the previous resistance line which has now become the support line in gold.
  • The chart shows a technical breakout in gold. This is a positive for gold but negative for stocks.
  • The chart shows the breakout occurred after two shallow pullbacks. This is a positive for gold.
  • The chart shows that the breakout is occurring on four rare things coming together.
  • Gold is priced in dollars. For this reason when the dollar becomes stronger gold goes down. Lately the dollar is becoming stronger but instead of going down, gold is going up.
  • Typically gold goes down when the stock market goes higher, especially if there is an aggressive up move in the stock market as has been happening lately. Here gold has broken out as the stock market has gone higher.
  • Gold typically goes up when there is a new safe haven event such as war. Here gold did not breakout on coronavirus crisis. However now that the coronavirus scare has been subsiding, gold is moving up. Gold breaking out under these circumstances without a new event that makes money rush into the safe haven of gold is rare.
  • Smart money has not been buying gold until now but now smart money has jumped in with light buying. This behavior is rare as smart money typically buys on pullbacks.
  • With Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) in a strong uptrend and investors’ portfolios concentrated in mega-caps such as Apple (AAPL), Amazon (AMZN), Facebook (FB) and Alphabet (GOOG) (GOOGL), this breakout in gold is of major significance.
  • Semiconductors have been the leading indicators of the stock market. Investors should keep a careful watch on semiconductor stocks such as AMD (AMD), Micron (MU), NVIDIA (NVDA) and Intel (INTC). Semiconductors are overbought and vulnerable.
  • Investors should also keep a careful watch on short squeezes in stocks such as Virgin Galactic (SPCE), Tesla (TSLA), Enphase (ENPH) and SolarEdge (SEDG).
  • There are new concerns about coronavirus and the impact on earnings. Investors should stay tuned to the news from China as well as to earnings related announcements.

Jobless Claims

Jobless Claims came at 210K vs. 211K consensus.

Momo Crowd And Smart Money In Stocks

The momo crowd is selling stocks.  Smart money is inactive.

Gold

For longer term, please see gold and silver ratings.

Oil

For longer term, please see oil ratings.

Marijuana

There is no discernable momo crowd or smart money activity.

PRODUCER PRICES SEE A BIG JUMP UNDERCUTTING THE THEORY THAT FED CAN PRINT MONEY WITHOUT CONSEQUENCES

To gain an edge, this is what you need to know today.

Money Printing

Please click here for a chart showing the Federal Reserve’s assets.  We have previously written that the stock market is going up in lockstep with money printing by the Fed. Are there consequences to the Fed continuing to print money?  In theory the consequence is high inflation; high inflation should force the Fed to raise rates and if the rates rise the stock market should fall perhaps by over 50%.  The current belief is that it is a free lunch because no inflation has shown up so far.

This morning, PPI shows an early indication that the current belief may not be correct forever.

Producer Prices

Core PPI came at 0.5% vs. 0.1% consensus.  This is an early warning signal.  However the stock market gurus are completely dismissing it because it is only one month of data.

Housing Starts

Housing is strong.  Housing Starts came at 1.57 million vs. 1.3 million consensus.

Momo Crowd And Smart Money In Stocks

The momo crowd is aggressively buying stocks. Smart money is lightly selling into the strength.

Gold

Gold has crossed $1600 because believe or not, there are investors who think the stock market is going to crash and they are putting money in gold to protect themselves.

The momo crowd is aggressively buying gold.  Smart money is also lightly buying gold.

For longer term, please see gold and silver ratings.

Oil

The momo crowd is aggressively buying oil as fighting in Libya heats up.  Smart money is inactive.

For longer term, please see oil ratings.

Marijuana

There is no discernable smart money or momo crowd activity in marijuana.

  • WMT reported overall earnings and projections significantly less than the consensus and the whisper numbers.  After running down in the pre-market, the stock is positive as of this writing.
