Elliott Wave Update on Gold and Gold Miners (GDX) from Sid at  Click on the charts to enlarge.

GDX moved to slight new lows today, but the larger picture is unchanged.  A large 18-month cycle trough is imminent in gold miners, and Gold and Silver appear to have already shown five small-degree waves up followed by partial retracements in the form of ABC zigzags.

Here are the updated GDX weekly, daily, and 240-minute charts:

GDX weekly 9-11-15

GDX daily 9-11-15

GDX 240m 9-11-15

As for Gold, here’s my main longer term count, shown on the XK futures contract.  The most important aspect of this chart is the interpretation of downward movement since September 2011 as corrective.

Gold weekly 9-11-14

Alternatively, those who prefer to count the downward movement in Gold since 2011 as a 5-wave impulse are generally counting Gold as follows, this time on a chart of GLD.

GLD weekly 9-11-15

Please note that I do not agree with the above interpretation over the longer term.  The most important take-away is that BOTH counts expect Gold to move to the upside next, likely back to the January 2015 highs at a minimum.  If Gold goes up, so will the miners.

Finally, here are both the main and alternate counts on the Daily, 240-minute, and 90-minute charts of Gold XK futures.  Notice the 5-waves up from the July low followed by a corrective ABC partial retracement on the 240-minute and 90-minute charts.

Gold daily 9-11-15

Gold 240m 9-11-15

Gold 90m 9-11-15

It is gratifying to know that regular subscribers to both my EWP ScreenShots and Weekly “Counts” Webinars have had the opportunity to gain great benefit from these charts.  For a look at my analysis on Gold going a bit further back, see the May 2012 post.

Side Note:  Some are proclaiming that the precious metals markets are being manipulated by governments to the downside.  If that were correct, how were the forecasts above developed utilizing Elliott Wave?  The Wave Principle, and its constant companion, Fibonacci Relationship Analysis are rooted in nature.  Not to mention, after parabolic manias like the September 2011 top in Gold, large corrections are the norm.
