Forecasted Months Ago … Now, Playing Out
Let’s start with the post from way back in September, linked here.
Back then, it said (emphasis added):
“It’s going to be a very different place come December.
This won’t be like ’08 -’09, where all the stops are being pulled to ‘rescue’ the market.
No, this time really is different.
We can all see by now; the plan is controlled demolition.“
That was then. Fast forward to now.
ZeroHedge has come out with the obvious. If there’s going to be a Santa Rally, it needs to start soon.
Good luck with that.
Instead of looking for a rally, we’ve moved on from that (unlikely) potential to something different, linked here.
That link is not a forecast. It’s there to remind us, the potential for what can happen.
One group that just won’t let go of the (sustainable) rally scenario are the gold bugs.
So, let’s take a look at a the largest cap in the mining sector, Newmont and see what the price action is telling us.
Newmont Mining NEM, Weekly
First, we have the un-marked chart and right off the bat, it does not look good; down -45.4%, from all-time highs.
It looks even worse, when the resistance zone is added.
So far, price action has already stalled and not been able to hold within the resistance zone.
It’s important to note, this resistance area is over two years wide. it’s not likely that anything’s going to happen to the upside without numerous attempts.
No ‘Clicks’, In A Gold Bear Market
If buying gold was the answer to getting through the financial, economic and societal collapse, then one would think the price would be moving relentlessly higher.
That’s not happening … not by a long shot.
What is happening, is this: Demand destruction on a colossal scale.
This destruction is on the birth side and the death side.
These events are affecting everything, going forward.
Nailing The Reversals
Using Wyckoff analysis, this site has been able to identify reversals in gold and the miners at times, to the day.
Once again, at this juncture, we’re at a potential reversal in silver, gold, and the miners.
It’s about 15-minutes before the open. NEM is trading slightly higher by about 1.00%.
Let’s see what happens next.
