It’s important to not fight the trend. I think a lot of precious metal investors can relate to this over the past 5 years. Betting against the bear market did considerable damage to many investor portfolios, so much so that it’s caused many to avoid buying the dips in this new bull market.
For 2016, the trend for gold is up… 52-week highs, followed by corrections (dips), proceeded by new 52-week highs. In late May, when we saw a near $100 per ounce pullback in gold, the ETFs and mining shares continued to see an inflow of funds.
Precious metal mining indexes and higher-quality companies barely even budged. Research done by Narasimhan Jegadeesh and Sheridan Titman found that stocks that make 52-weeks highs continue to outperform their peers for the next 6 months. The same goes for entire sectors, and right now, the junior gold space is the best-performing in the public markets.
These assets are still dirt cheap! Fortunes are going to be made over the next 12 to 36 months in this sector, which is why our recommendation is to trust the thrust!
