Gold Price Forecast – Gold Hits Record Highs After Fed Announcement -

Interest Payments

Personal interest payments (blue) exceed wages (red) by a large margin. The last time debt payments surpassed wages were ahead of the 2008 financial crisis.


State Coincident Index

The Philly Fed estimates economic activity per State. Only 20 states are showing increasing activity, implying that 30 states are in decline. Historically, this level supports a recession.


Commercial Real Estate

Past due loans on commercial real estate at the largest banks (>$250 billion) are at 4.11%. At this pace, delinquencies could meet or exceed the post-GFC peak of 8% in the next year or two.


Gold Cycle Indicator

Our gold cycle indicator finished at 224 and remains in neutral territory.


Gold jumped when the Fed announced it would soon reduce the rate of QT, which is the first step before cuts. A daily close below $2150 would be negative and support a bearish post-Fed reversal. Overall, I expect a robust advance into at least July with periodic price corrections.


We saw profit-taking in silver near $26.00, with prices forming a bearish engulfing candle. A decisive close above $26.00 is needed to unleash the bull.


Platinum remains near its cycle low stuck on struggle street. Prices must get and stay above the 200-day MA to achieve traction.


Miners slipped after Wednesday’s powerful up day. To extend to the upside, a close above $30.56 is needed.


Juniors need a close above $37.25 to maintain upward momentum.


Silver juniors need a close above $9.81 to maintain their upward trajectory.


The US Justice Department and numerous States launched an antitrust lawsuit against Apple, alleging the company’s unlawful monopoly in the smartphone market. Things could get ugly, and slipping below the October $165 low would support a notable breakdown.

S&P 500

Another new closing high, and this is one of those market moves that defy gravity until things suddenly unravel; no sign of that yet.


The next big surge in gold has started, and sub-$2000 pricing may be a thing of the past. Gold miners are silly cheap and should play catch up in the coming months.
