"I would not agree with this point of view. We just went through one of the longest bear markets for about six years long, with negative interest rates in about 35% of the countries worldwide which is a part of gold prices."
- Garrett Goggin, Associate Editor at Gold Stock Analyst, on Gold
Thus, we believe that bear markets are behind us, and that gold is going to be moving to the upside for the next few years. However in a shorter-term of the next months to half-year, we are looking for a short-term pullback. The sentiment is pretty bullish right now and commercials are very short.

USD/CAD retakes 1.30
“We will see some consolidation in the [US] dollar after the recent gains with expectations of a June hike still in play.”
- Nomura (based on Reuters)
As was expected, the 55-day SMA managed to prevent the USD/CAD currency pair from edging lower yesterday, which resulted in the Buck closing only with a 44-pip loss. Consequently, the Greenback should now undergo a correction and climb back over the 1.30 major level, with the monthly R1 and the weekly PP forming a strong resistance cluster circa 1.3025.

Expert Commentary
"When gold is high silver is moving also. The reason is the divertive of gold that is more volatile than gold’s. Thus, if gold moves, silver is going to move higher on a percentage basis."
- Garrett Goggin, Associate Editor at Gold Stock Analyst, on Gold
We focus is on the miners, and on silver miners in general, and here we are with a price which is going to surpass $14 per ounce. This move is profitable for the silver miners, and we expect large silver’s rally. Thus, I would agree with that opinion.

April Release
