JinkoSolar, Goldseek Resources, Barrick Gold - Is this the bottom?

  • Gold

Currently, many technology stocks are facing important marks after the correction. Will the loss be extended, or will the stocks resume their upward course in the still existing upward trend? Gold is also running up against a decisive mark at the moment. If it breaks through, the bear market and a clearing phase lasting for months are imminent. If the support holds, the old highs could well be surpassed this year.

Under fire in the short term

Gold investors must currently have strong nerves. Those who entered the gold market in October 2018 at USD 1,200 can still rest easy, but for short to medium-term traders, uncomfortable times could lie ahead. Currently, gold is trading in the USD 1,680 area, just above its lows marked earlier this month. A fall below this would take the price to the critical broad support zone around USD 1,645. If this is sustainably breached to the downside, there is likely to be a significant sell-off in the gold price. Then we would no longer be in a bull market but in a bear market, which would result in a longer-term consolidation and even lower prices. On the other hand, an upward liberation would succeed if the broad resistance zone around USD 1,750 could be recaptured.

Sentiment negative
Currently, little speaks for the precious yellow metal in the short term. Thus, despite the overheated stock markets, investors are still switching to the equity market in the hope of grabbing a higher yield. Confidence in an end to the Corona pandemic and a strongly recovering economy are undoubtedly good reasons to leave the safety of the gold market. Gold ETF holdings are at pre-crisis levels. Central banks also bought 60% less gold than they did a year earlier. In the long term, however, there are increasing reasons to invest in the metal, which is also a safe haven during crises and serves as a capital and inflation protector. Thus, one should not ignore the signals. Historic highs in national debt, ever new economic stimulus programs worth billions, as well as justified fears of rapidly rising inflation, are solid arguments for investments in tangible assets, primarily in precious metals such as gold and silver. In addition, there are again emerging tensions between the great powers USA and Russia. A trade war between the United States and China has been going on for a long time and is currently threatening to spill over into Europe.

Diversify your portfolio

The old investment rule of broadly diversifying your portfolio still applies. Thus, there should always be a share of gold and silver in the portfolio. In addition to physical gold, gold mines, which have been correcting since last summer and offer an excellent risk-reward ratio over the long term, are a good investment alternative. Goldseek Resources, a young company, is pursuing an exciting strategy. The management, which has an Ernst & Young history in the mining industry, acquires properties in mining-friendly areas, which are also in the vicinity of larger gold producers, and sets up drilling programs.

After successful drill results, these will eventually be passed on to the respective major in the best-case scenario. Goldseek Resources currently has 5 projects under development, 4 of which are located in the gold stronghold of Quebec and one property in historically gold-rich Ontario. The Hemlo camp in Ontario is located only 4 km north of the Hemlo mine operated by Barrick Gold. The other 4 projects in Quebec also enjoy a prominent neighborhood. The Detour Gold Trend is drilled next to Wallbridge Mining, and Urban Barry is drilled next to Osisko Mining and Bonterra Resources. Osisko Mining also has a mine next to the Quevillon project.

Drilling programs are currently underway on all five properties, which are fully funded for 2021. Results are expected from the projects some time soon. In early March, the Company announced that it had entered into an option agreement to acquire the entire Beschefer project from Wallbridge Mining. If the option is exercised, this would be the sixth project in the portfolio. Currently, management owns 61% of the shares, and 28% is also firmly held by institutional investors. Goldseek's market capitalization is presently only EUR 6.5 million. Should a major from the neighborhood express serious buying interest, there is extreme leverage in this Company.

At a decisive mark

The technical situation of the Chinese solar Company JinkoSolar is similar to that of the gold chart. After peaking in mid-January at USD 77, the value fell to currently USD 43, just above its important support zone at USD 40. If this zone were to be breached on a sustained basis, further price losses down to USD 25 would be quite possible. Fundamentally, JinkoSolar could shine with the presentation of a new solar module for decentralized photovoltaic systems. The module "Tiger Pro 54HC" is available in five versions with an output of 395 to 415 watts and an efficiency of 20.28% to 21.30%, the Chinese module manufacturer announced. The new product consists of 108 high-efficiency, monocrystalline half-cells and has a maximum system voltage of 1,500 volts. An entry into the share is not recommended at the moment from a technical point of view. However, we leave the value on the watch list.

Coinbase, Plug Power, NSJ Gold Corp. - Bitcoin, inflation, gold - triple whammy!

  • Gold

The crypto craze has erupted. Nothing is currently causing as much of a stir as cryptocurrencies, their trading platforms and all the service companies surrounding them. Never before have there been such price surges in associated assets in such a short period. There is widespread talk of the crypto world as a means to combat inflation and provide a new payment system. Let's be honest: a currency that fluctuates by more than 500% every six months is hardly suitable for mapping the payment flows of millions of transactions in the goods sector. A Bitcoin that cost EUR 10,000 in the summer of 2020 has reached prices of over EUR 50,000 today. How should one deal with this alleged "currency" - Impossible, as Bitcoin itself is probably inflationary!

Barrick Gold, Desert Gold, Steinhoff: Where inflation is an opportunity

  • Gold

Inflation is back! In the USA, annual inflation has already climbed to 2.6%. Experts believe that the 3% mark will also be targeted during the course of the year. What does this mean for investors? It is becoming increasingly more important to protect one's assets! Shares can play a central role here as these traditionally perform well during inflationary phases. But beware: Inflation strikes particularly hard at growth stocks that will only make profits in the distant future.

Osino Resources, Barrick Gold, Sibanye Stillwater - Gold in Turnaround!

  • Gold

The large gold producers are left lying in the current environment. What counts on the capital markets is the slight inflation, which one gladly accepts, because the economies have been suffering for years from the prescribed minus interest rate and deflationary tendencies. In other stock market cycles, demonetization phases were always good times for the precious metals; this is not yet evident at present. After the significant correction in March 2020, there were sharp rises in mining stocks until late summer 2020, but a large part of the gains will gradually melt away again in 2021. Is there still hope for the precious metals?
