Lundin believes that once gold can hold above US$1,300 or US$1,320 “the key points are the 2016 highs, around US$1,370, US$1,372.” 

The gold price may be struggling to stay above the US$1,300-per-ounce level, but Gold Newsletter Editor Brien Lundin still believes the yellow metal’s long-term outlook is bullish. 

“I think the stocks are reflecting that [bullish long-term outlook] in that investors aren’t bailing on the sector — the smart investors aren’t at least,” he said at the Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada (PDAC) convention.

Lundin believes that once gold can hold above US$1,300 or US$1,320 “the key points are the 2016 highs, around US$1,370, US$1,372.”

If we get there, “buying momentum will have a lot of generalist traders coming into the market. That will take us to US$1,400 pretty quickly, and that’s a really big number for gold. After US$1,400 there’s very little resistance before you get up to near the old highs around […] US$1,800, US$1,900.”

Shedding light on technical vs. psychological levels for gold, Lundin suggested that US$1,400 is a major psychological level for the precious metal. “If we clear that big number, US$1,400, I think we’ll clear all the technical levels associated around that area very quickly,” he said.

The benefits of a gold price move would go beyond the gold space, he noted, saying, “nothing really gets markets, investors and people in general excited like a gold bull market.”

Lundin continued, “one thing I tell people is that there’s never been a copper bull market, a zinc bull market, a diamond bull market or a rare earth bull market without a backdrop of a gold bull market. That’s what brings investors to the table, that’s what drives equity prices higher.”
