The gold-mining stocks’ usual volatility has proven outsized so far this year, spooking investors. A fast initial surge in a new upleg was soon fully reversed by a sharp major correction, which spawned much bearish sentiment. That combined with the great distraction from the Trumphoria stock-market rally has left gold stocks unloved and overlooked. But their outlook is very bullish, and major upside breakouts near.
It’s hard to find bargains in today’s extreme stock markets. They’ve been radically distorted by the post-election euphoria centered on universal hopes for big tax cuts soon. Nearly every sector has been bid up to dizzying valuations. Except gold stocks, which everyone still hates. They may very well be the last remaining contrarian sector in these crazy markets, and thus a great buying opportunity for smart traders.
