Dow Gold and Gold Silver Ratio Charts Remain Bullish

GoldCore's picture

A substantial risk from the pending budget negotiations remains as does the appalling US national debt and unfunded liability situation – both of which offer long term support to gold and silver.

The market lustily greeted the deal that U.S. Congress passed to raise taxes on the wealthy and spare the middle and lower income earners.

However, the very necessary cutting of budgets in various sectors, military and domestic, will no doubt fuel many more political battles as the nation’s finances continue to deteriorate.

In India, the central bank has required restrictions be placed on gold imports by banks and agencies, while the finance minister said he was evaluating further tax increases on gold imports to help rein in a current account gap that touched an all-time high in the Q3 2012.

U.S. weekly jobless claims for 12/20 are released at 1330 and expected at 365,000 and at 1900 GMT the FOMC Minutes from the fed’s December 12th meeting are released.

Dow/XAU Index – (Bloomberg)

We continue to favour the Dow Gold Ratio chart as a good indicator as to when the gold bull market might end. It is likely to reach the levels seen in 1980, close to 1:1 or the Dow at 5,000 or 10,000 and gold at between $5,000/oz and $10,000/oz.

This will be an indication that the gold bull market will be in its final innings. Provided of course we do not return to some form of gold standard whereby gold bull markets and bear markets will again become confined to history.

Gold Silver Ratio Index– (Bloomberg)

We continue to be more bullish on silver in the long term and believe the gold silver ratio should fall back to the geological 15:1 level as was last seen in 1980. This means that silver continues to be more attractive from a return point of view.

the PMs are only as good as your ability to make the margin payments. While I had no margins to meet, I gave up weeks ago. If Au falls back to $1500 I might get interested again.

I'm not getting how that chart is going to turn down again and head towards parity.  To me it looks like it's at a bottom right now.   Maybe if the y axis was log instead of linear, the chart would tell the story better.

Gold is likely to be bottoming, as the "puke" indicator is very close to signaling a bull market signal:

Blooger "Victor the Cleaner" has extensively and cogently written about such an indicator:

Gold is as good as gold.

I want some of whatever this author is smoking.

End the Fed, buy all the assets they stole from us back with Greenbacks, then go back to the Gold Standard.. That's all there is to say.

The rest of your trash is just more noise.
