Most gold bull runs typically start slowly as it faces the headwinds from good selling by frustrated longs who see price strength as an opportunity to exit … once we are through that gold is unfettered for a faster move higher as prices go inelastic. We seem to be in that phase now.
The high RSI suggests that gold is due a temporary pause - but it also suggests to us that it is brewing for the mother of all moves higher. We just need to breach the $1360 level and we are off to the races.

I would also recommend gold and gold stocks. The yellow metal, as expected, is performing well at the moment, and commodity traders have taken a net bullish position for the first time since July. So far this quarter, gold has crushed the market, returning around 6 percent as of December 21, compared to negative 15 percent for the S&P 500 Index. Gold miners, though, as measured by the NYSE Arca Gold Miners Index, have been the top performer, climbing a phenomenal 12.3 percent.

At the recent London Bullion Market Association annual conference, the consensus opinion on the gold price for 2019 among 682 industry delegates was $1532 per ounce. The LBMA offers its opinion annually and it usually falls on the conservative side of the ledger. So its consensus opinion of an average price more than 25% higher than the trading range at the time came as a surprise.
“This is the most bullish forecast since 2012,”

Interestingly, gold, largely left for dead, has rallied. Not only has gold bounced, but it has done so despite a steady dollar. Which raises the question: Why is gold rallying now? Here are four potential reasons:

And then there was the outlandish forecast by the delegates predicting at 25% increase in the gold price in 12 months to $1532 - either this was a conference operating in two parallel universes, where delegates were deeply bullish and speakers bearish - or an effect of voting anonymously meant that delegates put in super-high figures for sheer devilment - either way, there was a disconnect… or as you might put it, an incoherency.

Gold is a unique asset class due to its uncorrelated nature and its ability historically to perform well amidst global financial and geopolitical turmoil. We think of it as financial insurance. Like health or auto insurance, a small allocation can go a long way when hardship occurs.
While it was disappointing to see gold fall below $1,200 per ounce, even though we expected it too and forecasted this in our prior commentaries, current extreme positioning (also characteristic of the lows in 2001) suggests the price will not remain at these levels for too long.

If you do not own gold, there is no sensible reason other than you do not know history, or you do not know the economics of it..........over long periods of time the price of gold approximates the total amount of money in circulation divided by the gold stock.

Last week stocks were hammered, and gold acted as a key flight-to-safety asset in the market. Initially, as the US market retreated, gold held steady. But as the sell-off became more systemic globally, gold began to rally meaningfully
