Gareth Soloway: Gold's Path as 2021 Wraps Up; Thoughts on Uranium, Oil, Gas youtu.be

The gold price has left some investors feeling disappointed this year, but as 2021 approaches its end, Gareth Soloway of InTheMoneyStocks.com is still "very, very bullish" on the yellow metal.

Speaking to the Investing News Network, he said the fact that gold has been trading sideways for the last month or so is a positive indicator, although it may not appear to be one.

"What that tells us is that gold is starting, believe it or not, to pay attention to inflation. And the reason why you know that is because in general we've seen interest rates go back; we were down at 1.2 to 1.3 percent a few months ago, and we're now near 1.6 percent," Soloway explained in the interview.


"If you look at the performance of interest rates vs. gold over the last 20 years, as interest rates go up, gold sells off. We haven't seen gold sell off, we've seen gold more chop sideways over the last couple of months as interest rates have gone up. And what that again tells us is that the market is starting to realize inflation is here, and big money is buying every single dip on gold. So I continue to be very, very bullish on gold over the longer term," he added.

Soloway also shared his thoughts on this week's US Federal Reserve meeting, which ran from Tuesday (November 2) to Wednesday (November 3). The central bank announced plans to start tapering its bond-buying program, saying it will reduce purchases by US$15 billion a month; if it stays on track, it will reach zero by June of next year.

Of course, there's no guarantee that the Fed will stick to that schedule — Soloway pointed out that it has left room to speed up, slow down or make other changes. "The market loves that — anything where the Fed is flexible in case the markets dip, that's the way the market views it," he said.

Aside from gold, Soloway discussed a number of other commodities, including silver, which he's feeling a little more positive on compared to midway through this year, and uranium, where another leg up could be coming.

Oil and gas have also been grabbing attention, but Soloway said for him they've gotten too mainstream. He said there's been a "confirmed top" in oil, and reminded market participants to look for sectors that have upside potential, but aren't attracting broad-based attention.

"As soon as you start to see that talk and you look at the charts — if they're already extended and they've already rallied on anticipation, then you don't necessarily have a good opportunity to get in at a good price," he commented. "For me it's more about looking at the future when no one's talking about it."

Kirkland Lake Gold Ltd. (" Kirkland Lake Gold " or the " Company ") (TSX:KL) (NYSE:KL) (ASX:KLA) today reported that the Company has been advised by the Environmental Protection Authority ("EPA") Victoria of the Victorian Government that the EPA has determined that low-level frequency noise (in the range of 16-20 Hz) is being emitted by the Fosterville Mine.

The EPA has provided the Company with a Notice to Investigate and an Improvement Notice focused on the low-level frequency noise which it believes is emanating from the mine. Included within the notices are stated timelines covering a period of just over two months for investigating and resolving the issue of low-frequency noise as well as reporting to the EPA on modifications introduced and new testing completed. In addition, the EPA has indicated to the Company that additional action may be taken by the EPA that could result in restrictions on the use of certain equipment, primarily surface ventilation fans and surface drill rigs in the south portion of the mining lease, during the night, while the remediation period is completed. The potential impact of such measures on the Fosterville operations, should they be introduced, is currently being investigated.

Management at Fosterville has been aware of concerns expressed by residents in recent months regarding low-level frequency noise and has taken steps to evaluate and address these concerns. As part of these efforts, Fosterville commissioned two independent studies on noise levels produced by the mine. The studies were completed by accredited noise and acoustic specialist firms based in Australia, with both studies concluding that all mine generated noise was within regulatory limits.
