QUESTION: Mr. Armstrong, looking at the analysis of Socrates on gold we see that the Momentum is bullish, trend is bullish, cycle trend is bullish, but Long term is bearish, how does that square with your call that Gold is going up to $5,000.00 when the long term is bearish.
ANSWER: Looking very long-term is different from the relevant time frame. Gold has not broken out and I have given the number where that becomes a possibility. We are not yet there. Events on the horizon are the critical issue. The world is not ready yet and the stock market also reflects this pending threshold. Socrates comment is thus concerned with the immediate outlook and until gold gets through key points, there is no breakout. The extreme target is not due on this cycle but the next.
