The chart pattern for the Fidelity Select Gold Fund (FSAGX, last change: 5.22%) has turned positive and we think that the sector is in the beginning stages of a new bull market now. FSAGX is making higher highs and higher lows, while clearing the 100 day moving average too. We wouldn’t be surprised to see a pullback in the next few days after the recent strong performance, which should provide investors with new opportunities to establish positions.
The selling of gold mining stocks accelerated today. As the result, the Fidelity Select Gold Fund (FSAGX, last change: -4.92%) has reached a new 52-week low. The panic selling of gold stocks is not well explained by the news. This should serve as a red flag for investors who are trying to pick the bottom to go long in gold. We will not consider investing in this sector until prices stabilize.
