Gold Forecast – Double Bottom Breakout Supports $2000 Gold by August
Gold entered a prolonged correction after reaching new all-time highs in 2020. The double bottom in March looks complete, and we expect a multi-month advance and retest of the $2000 level by August.
If you’re new to precious metals, gold investors need to have nerves of steel. Corrections in this space are trying events due to duration and severity. The last 8-months was no exception. If you are still standing – congratulations!
Gold Forecast Near-Term
Gold is confirming a double bottom breakout, and prices should begin to stairstep their way back towards the $2000 level, possibly by August. I continue to see deep value in gold miners and believe they will outperform metal prices moving forward.
Gold Forecast Long-Term
Below is the Monthly Gold chart. Gold broke out of a 6-year base and confirmed a new bull market in 2019. Prices have pulled back to the 20-month moving average (first test in a new bull market). The last time this setup occurred was in 2004.
Later this decade, we believe gold will reach $8500+ with a real chance of exceeding $10,000 if governments continue with their experiments with modern monetary theory.
Our Gold Cycle Indicator is at its most bullish reading (ZERO) and the Premium Educational Portfolio has been buying miners aggressively. I believe it is well-positioned for the next advance.
