The Breakout in Gold and Silver


After jogging sideways for weeks, Gold (GLD) finally appears ready to start running. With the Thursday and Friday candles, it is pushing to higher highs again!

One of the things we like to see is when the gold miners (GDX) outperform the gold stocks. Gold stocks formed a tight flag recently and broke out Friday.

As I mentioned, we want the gold names to outperform the actual bullion. This is shown by using a ratio between them. When this line is rising, it is usually a great time to be invested in gold names.
