Our followers and readers have been emailing us asking for more research into Precious Metals and updated Adaptive Dynamic Learning (ADL) Price Modeling charts (our proprietary price/technical mapping system capable of predicting future trends, setups, and price levels). This special Gold and Silver research article will help you learn what to expect over the next 24+ months and where opportunities exist in Gold and Silver trends.
LONGER-TERM SUPPORT IN GOLD LIKELY TO ACT AS AN UPWARD SLOPING PRICE FLOOR OVER THE NEXT 24+ MONTHS
There are two key upward sloping trend lines we want to focus your attention on, on this Monthly Gold chart, below. The first, the YELLOW trend line, originates from the 2009 bottom from the Housing Crisis. The important thing to remember at this time was that the US markets were in the midst of a broad market Depreciation Cycle that started in 2001-02 and ended in 2010. The rally that was taking place before the 2000 Depreciation Cycle started was a reactionary upside price trend resulting from the end of the DOT COM bubble and the post 911 terrorist attacks. The US entered a war that pushed fear levels higher – resulting in a transitional shift in how Gold was perceived at that time.
The YELLOW trend line acts as key market support resulting in a Wave 1 & Wave 2 setup. Gold is currently rallying into a Wave 3 rally phase which my team and I believe will prompt two unique rally peaks over the next 24+months. The first with a high price near $2400 and a second with a high price near $2775. The first upward price wave will likely peak near the end of 2021 or in early 2022 and the second upward price wave will likely peak near Q3/Q4 of 2022.
The second upward sloping price trend line is more aggressively trending and will likely act as an immediate price floor over the next 24+ months. In other words, we expect this more aggressive CYAN trend line to continue to act as an immediate price support level pushing the next two price waves upward to our targets levels.
I’ve drawn the two expected upward price waves on this chart in GREEN Arrows. Remember, this is a Monthly Gold price chart, so each of these price waves represents 4 to 6+ months of time.
GOLD QUARTERLY ADAPTIVE DYNAMIC LEARNING CHART – LOOKING FOR $2500+
Our proprietary Adaptive Dynamic Learning price modeling system is showing a very clear upward arcing price advance in Gold on this Quarterly chart. It is clear to see Gold should rally into the end of 2021, reaching highs above $2100~2200 before the start of 2022, then continue to rally above $2200 into 2022. At this point, Gold will likely attempt a rally above $2400 before stalling out between $2400~$2500 near the end of 2022. This next downward price correction, after the peak, will attempt to retest the YELLOW support channel on this chart – which is very similar to the CYAN price trend line on the chart above.
The next secondary peak in Gold will likely happen in 2023. The condensed nature of this second price rally in Gold suggests the peak near $2400 may complete a minor upward wave, part of the broader upward Wave 3 structure setting up now, and prompt a minor retracement to levels near $1900 before moving higher after 2023. So, Gold traders have two to four really nice price trends setting up over the next 24+ months.
SILVER QUARTERLY ADAPTIVE DYNAMIC LEARNING CHART – LOOKING FOR $50+
This Silver ADL Monthly price chart highlights a very big trend that is setting up where Silver may rally above $40 to $50 near the end of 2021 or in early 2022 before moving into a sideways price consolidation phase – eventually settling near $30 to $35 in 2023~24.
What we find interesting about this ADL predictive chart is that Silver has continued to advance faster than gold over quite an extended period of time and is actually holding up a momentum/base level better than Gold over the past 8+ months. It is our belief that Silver will start to rally above $35 in Q3/Q4 2021 and may target levels above $40 before the end of 2021. The peak in Silver may happen near the end of 2021 or in early 2022, and we want to warn you that a peak level above $50 is very possibly on a washout peak type of rally.
Eventually, though, Silver will retrace back to levels near $30 to $35 and settled into another sideways price trend near the end of 2022 and throughout 2023. So, this presents another extended sideways price channel phase where Silver traders can load up on Silver while it settles into this channel before the next big rally phase.
The lack of secondary price rally in Silver, as we saw in the ADL data for Gold, suggests the secondary Gold rally phase may be very short-lived and condensed.
Either way, my team and I believe the precious metals sector is primed and ready for this next upward price trend. To help you understand the timing of these events, the bit breakout rally in Silver does not start until near the end of 2021 and carries into Q1/Q2 of 2022. The big rally in Gold will likely start in Q3/Q4 2021 and last throughout 2022 and into Q1/Q2 2023. So, based on the ADL price modeling system’s suggestions, Silver may enter an explosive price rally phase – overshooting true market boundaries, while Gold enters a more sustained and realistic price rally to levels above $2200 over the next 6 to 8+ months. Silver will peak and begin to consolidate lower while Gold holds above $2000 and continues to trend moderately higher in two separate advancing phases.
Remember, our Appreciation/Depreciation cycle phase research suggests the new Depreciation cycle phase started in 2019 and will last until 2027~2028. That means Silver and Gold will likely continue to experience multiple upward price cycle phases (advances) well into 2029~2030 before finding an ultimate peak level. We still have a long way to go before this rally in precious metals peaks.
More than ever, right now, traders need to move away from risk functions and start using common sense. There will still be endless opportunities for profits from these extended price rotations, but the volatility and leverage factors will increase risk levels for traders that are not prepared or don’t have solid strategies. Don’t let yourself get caught in these next cycle phases unprepared.
