ELAM: Gold and oil advance

ELAM: Gold and oil advance

Posted:

Gold futures rose 3.6% to $1,392.90 an ounce, the biggest one day advance since June 2016 and its highest settle since 2013. WSJ Today

An ongoing theme of this column is that unremembered changes in social mood result in social action. This is in contrast to the news media’s conventional explanation. This morning the media cites a weak dollar as justification. But the dollar has been falling from its peak in mid May. The correct explanation is that enthusiasm for gold has been growing since its bottom last August. Weaker currencies around the world, Russia, Mexico, has been Venezuela, add to the mix.

The long-term picture is that gold peaked near $1,900 in 2011. It has been in a seven-year correction since then, bottoming in 2015. Since then a series of higher lows finally resulted in a break-out Thursday. Friday’s price is now above the four moving averages (50.87,125,200) I track. And the conclusion is that gold and other metals are beginning a multi-year bull market advance.
