I have been a big believer in Gold stocks. Over the last couple of months, all of my best performers have been in the space. Yesterday I was getting concerned but today I was watching stock after stock take me out.
Perhaps it is easiest to spot on the Gold bear chart HGD.TO. The DUST ETF is the same.
The $CRB chart is very fragile. Seeing the momentum make a lower high and roll over at zero is very concerning. This fits with oil's weakness as well. We have already seen the industrial metals chart crack. Here is a link to the PICK ETF chart.
The bottom line for me is the commodities markets are rolling over. Careful staying with the trade if you get sell signals. All of these videos have a positive outlook for gold stocks. That all changed today. I will be discussing it on today's Final Bar.
The Canadian Technician video shows the massive breakdown on almost every sector chart in Canada.
Natural Gas has been behaving well but the exploration stocks around Natural Gas are still struggling with the overall market sentiment. Lots of information in here on the commodities and indexes. No new breakouts in currencies. The weekly $CRB chart is at a critical point here. Lithium and rare earth metals, steel and coal, copper and aluminum, gold and silver are all covered here.
This is a short look at the broad market setup and some of the indicators that told us the market was fragile ahead of the drop. Probably worth saving a link for use in future years when the market conditions go weak.
