Gold Price Forecast – A Runaway Move Could Push Gold Towards $3000 by August -

The 2005 Gold Breakout

In 2005, gold broke decisively above the $450 level and entered the recognition phase of the bull market. Notice how prices kept rising despite overbought conditions; corrections were sharp, brief, or absent.

I point this out because I believe the current market just entered its recognition phase, implying prices may rise higher and run longer than expected. Don’t lose your seat by selling too early – the bull market is just getting started.

Inflation Update

CPI increased 0.4% for March and 3.5% annually. At this rate, inflation could creep back above 4% by August and maybe higher if we see crude oil spike over conflict with Iran.


Gold Cycle Indicator

The Gold Cycle Indicator finished at 283. I’ll look to hedge positions once it enters cycle topping (red).


Gold immediately reversed yesterday’s swing high; momentum continues to the upside. If prices extend above $2400, this could turn into a runaway move, hitting $2500+ quickly and $3000 by August.


Silver is showing underlying strength, and prices are pushing to the upside. A breakout above $30 could trigger significant upside, potentially reaching $50+ in 2024.


Progressive closes above $1000 in platinum would open the window to $1200+ later this year.


Miners reversed yesterday’s swing high. The trend looks strong, and the sooner prices close above $35.50, the more bullish I’ll become.


Juniors are short-term overbought as they approach last year’s highs. Prices are due for a pullback, but I wouldn’t be surprised if they continue shooting higher.


Silver juniors are overbought as the trend approaches last year’s high ($12.15). The sooner prices break above $12.00, the more bullish I’ll become.

S&P 500

Stocks are due for a correction as markets reprice to fewer Fed rate cuts. If the 10-year yield climbs above 5%, equities could adjust sharply lower.


The next big surge in gold has started, and sub-$2000 pricing may be forever in the past. Gold miners are unloved, extremely undervalued and have a lot of potential upside in the coming months and years. Watch silver for clues.
