Gartman Flip Flops Again, Now Sees Bull Market For Gold: Time To Sell Everything?

Tyler Durden's picture


Confirming once again that anyone who subscribes to newsletters looking for guidance on market inflection points, trend, and momentum deserves to lose every last penny, is the just released mea culpa from "world renowned economist" and lately even more renowned flip-flopper Dennis Gartman who has just admitted that his call from December 13, which stated that "gold is in the "beginnings of a real bear market" and conveniently mocked right here, may have been, well, wrong. Financial Post, which apparently is one of the subscribers to said newsletter, reports that "In his daily investment letter Thursday, Mr. Gartman officially  reversed his outlook for gold, saying he now views the precious metal as being in a bull market. The new position follows a month where Mr. Gartman was the subject of some high-profile name calling from fellow investment letter writer, Peter Grandich. Mr. Grandich called Mr. Gartman “one of the Three Stooges” of gold forecasting after the latter declared that gold was officially in a bear market (if you’re wondering, the other two accused of being in that trio are Jeff Christian of CPM Group and Jon Nadler of Kitco)." Frankly there is no point to devolve to name calling - those who are not familiar with Gartman need but take one look at the performance of his ETF since inception - suffice it to say that with Gartman now flip flopping to the long side, it is likely time to get the hell out of dodge.


Mr. Gartman’s reversal comes as he has failed to buy back gold below the price he sold it at a few weeks ago. He said that now that gold priced in euros has taken out its previous interim high, he sees the metal returning to a bull market.


“The bear run that began in August has now officially ended, for the string of lower lows and lower highs is over,” he said in his Gartman Letter. “This does not help us in hoping for/expecting/indeed demanding some weakness into which to buy, but it does give us “permission” to become officially bullish once again.”




For what it’s worth, Mr. Gartman admitted his call on gold was a bad one.


“We sold gold rather properly several weeks ago; we failed miserably, however, to buy it back for although our intent was clear late last week as we said it was our intention soon to re-buy that which we had sold, we’ve failed to do so,” he said.

There is only one sure thing that will come out of this laughable incident: absolutely nothing, and likely as soon as tomorrow we will see Gartman back on CNBC giving people advice about what to do with their money.

Gold and the Euro are seriously parting paths. Soon the dollar starts slipping to gold as well.

A nice little Congressional chat about debt ceilings might provide the cold water in the face of the perception of US Treasuries as a safe haven instead of used toilet paper.

At that point, to quote seminal 70s supergroup Boney M, golds on a Nightflight to Venus and all the rah rah of Rasputin Bernanke wont keep it down

I completely agree with this number. as it reflects a resonable wage for the time and effort it takes me to get a gram of gold when I go panning. $214 a gram or about $35 an hour. PERFECT! As it stands now i make about $2/hr.

After a while all you can do is sit back and laugh at the INSANITY of it all.  The same insanity that allowed Santorum to go from the low teens or single digits to tie first place in the Iowa Caucus is another example.

A person has to be really DENSE not to see the writing on the wall.  Gold and Silver should be trading several times above their current price.  Technical Analysis today just measures the amount of Paper Manipulation and Psychology in the market as it pertains to gold and silver.  As the psychology changes away from 40 years of Fiat Amnesia and into Real Money, Technical Analysis will show this in the charts.

My newest article titled: First Time Ever: Silver Sales Surpass Domestic Production shows just how much silver is going into official govt coin investment demand compared to domestic silver productiion.  You can find the article HERE:

I am writing a new article on "The Coming Paradigm Shift in Silver".  This will explore the coming PHASE SHIFT in psychology that has occured in other investments and stocks.

Thanks. Keep up the good work.

Gartman and I had it out years ago whan I called him on his failed Euro/Gold call at 500. That was 700 Euros ago.

He called me "an idiot" back then. I wear it as a badge of honor now.

We got his newsletter when I was a currency trader, and personally, I found them useless and stopped reading within two weeks. I do remember that he flip-flopped a lot on gold when it was approaching 1000 for the first time. He was bullish, then bearish, then bullish, then bearish again so many times  we lost count and indeed could never remember whether he was bullish or bearish. The guy might have been a good trader back in the day (long b4 I was trading) but he's lost that touch and should just stick to writing about 'stuff' and not telling people if they should buy/sell said 'stuff'. BTW, if you're curious about how much his daily newsletter costs, it's $400/month per person. It's usaully 4-6 pages and the only interesting, using that term loosely, part is generally the opening paragraph or two. That' it. It also is published in for the London open so if you're in NorAm, you get ripped off as the info is already hours stale.

Gartman is a Fake. He does what everybody else on CNBC does. He pumps what he wants you to buy so he can get out.

I got his letter for a little while. At 400 bucks it is not worth it. He does the same thing to his subscribers.

Between him and R. Prechter I don't know who they should castrate first. Prechter is now wrong for three years in a row.

But he will sell you 100 ways for you to figure out he is a loser. Think for yourself.

I still look in the yellow pages for coin stores where the prices beat anything that you can find on the internet.  Retail venues on the street are the best source for precious metals.  If I lived in the boonies I might be tempted to shop via the web though.  Coin shops are fun and you don't have to wait for the mail to deliver them.  You can't "deal" in an internet transaction either.

Prediction: Japan will get pulled out of its slump this year by the not-collapsing US economy. Fears that Japan will -finally- go down under its weight of debt, will be busted. After all, in this boring world, collapses simply don't happen. We're still alive, after all, and will continue to be. Hungary accepts support, Greece will get its package, Ireland grows, Spain and Italy restructure and Iran is a paper tiger. Bye bye doomers. #WhatCrisis?

I think the Ugly Elites have finally wound the springs too tight.  Oil and gold saying 'up yours' at these price levels....ready to spring higher on any one of several factors: geopolitical risk rachet, new dollar weakness, new European strength, increased US economic some point one or more of these will blow.  And so will the WOP and the POG.

This is the trough for now.  Feed well, my friends.

Gold has been a valuable and highly sought-after precious metal for coinage, jewelry, and other arts since long before the beginning of recorded history. Gold standards have been the most common basis for monetary policies throughout human history, being widely supplanted by fiat currency only in the late 20th century. Gold has also been frequently linked to a wide variety of symbolisms and ideologies. A total of 165,000 tonnes of gold have been mined in human history, as of 2009.[2] This is roughly equivalent to 5.3 billion troy ounces or, in terms of volume, about 8500 m3, or a cube 20.4 m on a side. The world consumption of new gold produced is about 50% in jewelry, 40% in investments, and 10% in industry.

Gold has been known and used by artisans since the Chalcolithic. Gold artifacts in the Balkans appear from the 4th millennium BC, such as those found in the Varna Necropolis, Bulgaria. Gold artifacts such as the golden hats and the Nebra disk appeared in Central Europe from the 2nd millennium BC Bronze Age.

Source: Wikipedia.

So we, as humans, have been using gold for a long long time. Now, if I`m to take what .gov is saying and many thousands of human history, I`ll go with the history.

How does Gartman define "bull market" and "bear market" if gold can swing back and forth between the two in a matter of weeks??? Anyway, we're safe as long as institutional investors keep listening to this mutt.

I've been wondering the same thing.  Maybe Gartman is a trader masquarading (or being unfairly portrayed in the meda) as an investor.  If he's a trader, then I guess there is nothing "wrong" with what he is doing.


The media portrayal recently has been clear though,  Gartman was said to proclaim the ten year bull market as being over.

There's no end to it till we're all dead.

Oh and btw.......if you're an investing genius then why would you need to charge people to take your advice?  We all know the answer to that one.

Save me the boot straps speech, im already 45(2/3 dead) im not gona waste the rest of my life working my ass off in an impossible system.  House is paid off, fuck it.  And if some horseshit comes out where the system tries to take my house then that's it for me.  And that's it for the mothefucker that tries to take it.

I take this as a sign that gold will soon be going on sale again. It could continue higher for a little while, but I think it'll be below $1600 again pretty soon. I'm expecting it to drop close to $1300 in the next phase of deleveraging, which will occur very soon. Keep the powder dry for the fire sale.

The long awaited downgrade of the entire EU soverign debt by the S&P. This comes after their December 6th review that put them all on negative.

They always do the deed on Friday to soften the blow to the markets. This downgrade has significant repercussions to EFSF, as it makes it go from 440M AAA to 292 AAA (as per S&P). Not to mention the psychological effects of a headline of this nature.

this was the number it was not going above .

like all  callers of 250 please newsletters  // they are in it for the subscriptions ..

even the writer on this blog article  .. probably is as clueless as gartman .. or he would maybe temper his remarks .. and just suck a tit

I dont think it's going to drop again. I believe he needed a correct call to continue his talking head gig.

It's up up n away.

The fact that Gartman sold gold priced in Euros, while the Euro was dropping, is evidence enough of how well he thinks things through.

The above link is documentation of Gartman's calls.  The title of the FP Investing article, Gartman Admits he Made a Bad Call on Gold, is another Gartman cover-up.  "A" bad call?  How about three in a row?  The chart in the above link pinpoints these three bad calls--in a row.  Which begs the question, then: Why does he make a living selling a newsletter when better calls are made by James Turk and several others?  Turk doesn't sell advice; he sells a service, storing bullion.  You get better calls on free!  And you don't have to listen to Gartman's affected speech.  He tries to sound like a cross between James Grant and James Sinclair.  Ever notice that?  How do these guys weasel into the media when there is no talent there? Someone help me out?  Is Gartman a shill?  The Feds have admitted paying journalists and "analysts" during Congressional hearings on foreign policy matters.  So, please, no tin-foil hat comments.  It's very tired, now.  It's no longer cool to be a bourgeois American dolt.  It's just tired!

Who's the worse of the three, Christian, Gartman or Nadler?  Tough call isn't it?  I'd give an ounce of precious silver to see whopays them--off the books.  No one can be that dense.  Can he?  Go to and see where Gartman's traffic comes from.  Colombia!  Gartman is just one strange guy, creepy, actually.

If only Stolper would join forces with Gartman, I would add a negative correlation variable to my algorithm, and I'm thinkin' it would be damn near infallable.

Gartman has NEVER made a correct call on gold. Whatever he says, do the opposite.

Gartman is a rasberry jelly filled doughnut.

On Fast Money he just said that people are going to leave Family Dollar to shop at Nordstroms because the recovery is here.

Next week, he will tell us that Family Dollar is a buy because they have great deals on windshield scrapers and it's Winter; and to sell Silver because people are using less film.

Even a broken clock is right twice a day. Who gives a damn about Gartman's feelings about the direction of gold?

Does all this mean "one" should be "short of" Gartmans shit?

Gartman makes more money from speaking engagements. His appearances on CNBC/Bloomberg only help perpetuate the myth. What do you expect from the talking heads he once use to belittle all too often. Now he flips again and has become what he could not stand only a few years ago. 

Forgot to mention, his HAG fund was started at the low point of the financial crisis in March 2009. His timing was perfect, too bad he has lost 25% of the funds value while the S&P & DOW have risen 80%. 

Another Gartman trick is to be self deprecating and disingenuous in order to curry favour with his readers and give the impression he is not perfect. It is an act and he does not believe it for a minute. He loves himself and cannot take criticism. Notice how he turtled when Grandich called him out. 

Have a look at what the Globe said back in 2010...

A black mark on Horizon Funds his sponsors. If it were not so know the rest.
