Are Precious Metals and Indexes Going Parabolic?

It's been an exciting couple weeks in the market with gold now making new all time highs as money floods into this shiny safe haven. It has everyone all worked up wanting to take part or they are riding the rally up already. But the big question is when should some money be taken off the table to lock in gains and lower your overall risk during these crazy times?

Below are a few charts showing you how I see things at this time.

GLD - Gold Exchange Traded Fund

The price of GLD and gold appear to be going parabolic (straight up). The tough part about this type of price action is that large moves can happen in a very short period of time. But on the flip side, when the price reverses we tend to see prices fall just as fast if not faster. Trading this type of price action carries a very high level of risk. Those chasing it up buying at these overbought market conditions is a double edge knife.

SPDR Gold Trust Shares

 

SLV - Silver Exchange Traded Fund

Silver is trading similar to gold but the key difference here is that silver has not broken to a new high as of yet. The high was set in 2008 just over $20 per ounce. But from looking at the chart I think metals are ready for a breather.

iShares Silver Trust

 

HUI Index - Gold Stocks

Gold stocks have yet to breakout along with silver as they both are nearing key resistance levels. With gold stocks and silver trading near resistance I figure we will see pause in the coming days as traders digest the recent strong moves up taking some money off the table incase prices get stuck under these resistance level.

SPY - SP500 Broad Market Exchange Traded Fund

The broad market appears to be forming a possible short setup on the daily chart as the price continues to drift higher with declining volume. Also indexes are testing key resistance levels and the 10 period moving average. The next few days should be interesting...

S&P500 SPDR

 

Mid-Week Precious Metals and Index Exchange Traded Fund Report:

In short, it looks like precious metals and the broad market could take a breather in the coming days. I'm not sure how large of a correction we will see but I do not think it will be all that big.

Gold and silver should have a quick dip with buyers stepping back in on weakness. The SP500/broad market is a little more tough to call as last weeks market crash messed things up washing out all the stops in one day instead of weeks... but we could easily see a 5% drop in the market still.

Anyways I hope this analysis helps everyone...
