Platinum Begins A New Rally – Gold & Silver Will Follow – December 3, 2020
My researcher team and I have highlighted a number of recent articles about Gold and Silver and how we believed the longer-term price activity and technical analysis supported a broad market advance in Precious Metals over the next 5+ years. If not, check out Part I and Part II of our recent Gold and Silver research and price predictions.
Today, we are seeing further evidence that metals are on the move – in Platinum. Platinum has been trading below $1000 for quite a while and this is roughly HALF the price level of Gold. Typically, Platinum rallies before Gold rallies in a traditional trending phase. Platinum rallies because it is used in industrial and other fields – thus it rallies in an advanced market rally phase. Gold begins to rally when a certain level of fear enters the markets or the markets enter a depreciation phase.
Currently, we are watching Platinum rally above $1000 for the first time since August 2020 and it appears new all-time highs in Platinum are on the horizon. This suggests Gold and Silver will follow this upward trend in another rally phase and attempt to set new all-time highs as well.
DAILY PLATINUM BREAKOUT PENDING
This Daily Platinum chart highlights the Rounded Bottom formation that setup between September and November 2020 after the August highs peaked out near $1020. The recent rally in Platinum has begun to accelerate and we believe an upside breakout move is pending. This may prompt Platinum to rally above $1250 or more over the next few weeks/months.
THE WEEKLY PLATINUM CHART
This Weekly Platinum Chart highlights the broader market trend in Platinum and the resistance level (RED LINE) that is currently about to be broken. Once this resistance level is breached, a bigger upside move may begin where Platinum may target $1250 or higher fairly quickly.
As you can see from We believe this move in precious metals aligns with our previous research that a broader market Depreciation phase has set up in the global markets. We believe precious metals are about 24 months into a 100+ month broad market depreciation cycle. This means that we may see a rally in metals that lasts for several more years.
As many of you may already know, we love the metals and we love to apply our technical analysis skills and pattern research onto these charts. Could you imagine the scope of the rally that is setting up in Platinum mirrors the 2003 to 2010 price rally – just waiting for this breakout pattern to complete?
