Gold Still Meandering Sideways, US$ Strong

Source: Barry Dawes


September 12, 2023 ( Newswire) Barry Dawes of Martin Place Securities takes a look at current movements in the gold and silver sector as well as one stock he believes is showing some constructive action.

Key Points


Gold Stocks

ASX Gold Index



Bond Yields

TIPS and Gold


It seems that the summer doldrums are still with us with gold.

Gold is still at the same level as three months ago at the beginning of the northern hemisphere summer, and we haven't seen very much in terms of a seasonal uptick.

Gold's performance against a very strong U.S. dollar is very constructive.

It has been clear for quite some years that the real problems don't lie in the U.S. but rather in Europe and Japan and many other countries for that matter.

The U.S. speaks English, and it has a huge amount of information flow that is absorbed by everyone in the world.

The machinations in the political and bureaucratic spheres are now daily talking points, and so the problems are going to be dealt with one way or another.

In contrast, much of the debate is suppressed, particularly in Europe and the UK and here too.

So, the gold price in most of these currencies is very near an all-time high, while in US$, it is still about 7% below the all-time high.

There is action in the gold market, and that spike has shown it.

Meandering is probably the right term because the action is slow, but the river is wide and deep.

A change is coming, though.

See below on TIPS.

Gold stocks are also moving around without a lot of progress being made.

This meandering has obviously bored the market silly despite gold being only 7% below its all-time high in US$ and all-time highs in other currencies.

Sentiment amongst gold stock investors is very poor, and with this rate of change, we'll get back to the 2015/16 lows reasonably soon.

This indicator for the 200-week EMav Is giving a very clear buy signal.

It's always interesting to look at past periods of market moves without a clear direction but generally looking weak.

I'm sure most gold sector investors will remember the decline from 2011 to 2014 in the ASX gold index, where it fell 82%.

That was bloody.

This little period is interesting.

Sideways for six months and market sentiment miserable.

And then this happened!


Market leader Barrick Gold Corp. (ABX:TSX; GOLD:NYSE) is showing some constructive action by breaking its downtrend since mid-July and backtesting on the downtrend and on longer-term support.

The bigger picture looks very constructive.

ASX Gold Index

There is a very big Head and Shoulders Reversal coming up here.


The Sprott Silver Trust gives a more accurate view of the silver market.

Silver is building nicely against gold.


This long-term graphic for the US$ gets stronger every month.

And those currencies breaking 50-year uptrends are just getting weaker.

Even the so-called gold-related Swiss Franc is heading MUCH lower.

The Yen and Euro are lost causes.

And Bitcoin is heading lower.


The Treasury Inflation Protection Securities (TIPS) are indicating real interest rates are falling.

The short term is showing this.

The longer term is quite ominous.

A major break lower is coming.

The yields on U.S. Treasuries have failed to go higher.

Remember this graphic, too.

The suppression of the gold price from true animal spirits over the past 16 years has been this real interest rate control by gold investment institutions.

But gold held up this time when real rates rose to 1.5%, as shown by TIPS.

The West sold BULLION over this period.

Over 700 tonnes.

These bullion banks now either

And guess who probably bought it and won't be a seller?

And by the way, EO13848 was extended yet again.

Heed the markets, not the commentators.
