Eric King:  “Tom, remarkably you called the rally high on gold at $1,791 in October of 2012, you then turned bearish on gold and it proceed to come down significantly in price.  After gold recently breached the key $1,520 area you called for a target around the mid-$1,200s, and once again, almost like a magnet, gold has made its way to your target zone.  What are your thoughts here Tom?”

Fitzpatrick:  “Yes, it looks as though this correction may be nearing the end now that the objective we had been targeting has essentially been satisfied.  It’s possible that gold may trade a bit lower because of momentum, but certainly we have now achieved the target I gave to you when we broke the double-top on gold.

This also gave us a high-to-low down-move on gold of approximately 34%....

“We found this interesting because it was virtually identical to the high-to-low down-move that we saw in gold in 2008 (also 34%).  While we certainly haven’t seen anything yet to say we are about to head up dramatically, we believe that we may be bottoming here in gold. 

We’ve also had a significant move in silver which is virtually identical to what we saw in 2008.  The down-move in silver is now at roughly 60%, and, again, that is what the silver market experienced during the 2008 meltdown.  This makes us reasonably comfortable that both gold and silver are nearing the end of this corrective phase since they have followed the same path as the 2008 corrections.  We are now looking for signs that this is a bottom, despite the weakness, and that we may turn from here.”

Eric King:  “As I mentioned earlier, you nailed the top of the counter-trend rally in gold near the $1,800 level in late 2012, after calling the rally off the lows in the $1,500s.  Now you have made another nice call with the plunge we have seen here in gold.  How did you know we would see another round of weakness in gold?”

Fitzpatrick:  “Better to be lucky than brilliant any day of the week.  At the end of the day, we originally thought the $1,520 level would hold on gold.  But once we broke that support level, it set up a very clear target in the mid $1,200s on gold for us.

Now that we’ve essentially achieved that target, our feeling has always been that a healthy trend gets healthy corrections.  This is yet another healthy correction like we saw in 2008.  The interesting thing is because of where we’ve come from, if we were to now follow, over the next three years, the move after we put in that 2008 low in gold in terms of magnitude, it actually suggests something in the region of $3,400 to $3,500 for gold (see chart below).

As you know, in our bigger picture that has always been our long-term target in terms of where gold may go.  So we haven’t deviated from that way of thinking.  If anything this just solidifies our view that a host of markets are following the 1966 to 1982 pattern, which means this cycle will ultimately culminate around 2016.  So what’s happening here now is actually pushing us into a target for gold that fits nicely with our big picture view of a host of key markets.”

Eric King:  “If we’re near the end of this cyclical decline in both gold and silver, Tom, what should we look for going forward?”

Ftizpatrick:  “If we are in fact ending it, as I mentioned our focus has been that we will now start the multi-year move on gold to $3,400 to $3,500. 

Again, if you look at silver going back to the 2008 correction, we got down to levels below $9, then we saw the silver price multiply by a factor of over 5 times.  So assuming this marks a point near the end of the correction in silver, then our bias would be one that would take silver not only to new all-time highs, but we would look for a target as high as $100 for silver (see chart below).
