Mining Stocks Rally as Gold Advances to Highest Level Since June

This note from Bloomberg may be of interest. Here is a section:

Kinross Gold and Pan American Silver are among the gold and silver miners getting the biggest boost Tuesday, as gold rose to the highest in six months.

Gold rose 1% to trade over $1,840 an ounce as the precious metal continues to gain momentum
The Bloomberg Americas Mining Index gains as much as 3.2% led by Kinross’s 7.5% rise and Pan American’s 7.4% climb, Newmont climbs 3.7% and is one of the top performer in the S&P 500 Index

Other miners rallying include: EQX CN +11%, ARIS CN +10%, SVM CN +4.3%, BTO CN +3.3%, ABX CN +3.8%, FR CN +2.8%, LUN CN +3.9%, YRI CN +3.1%

Eoin Treacy's view

The gold price rallied in tandem with bonds yesterday, despite the relative strength of the Dollar. That suggests at least a temporary reorientation of investor focus towards the view gold is a perpetual zero-coupon bond. The implication is inflation has peaked and could easily surprise on the downside and the lagged effect of central bank tightening becomes clear in Q2/Q3.
Gold continues to extend the break above $1800. A short-term overbought condition is developing but a sustained move below the trend mean will be required to question recovery potential.

Newmont broke successfully above the $50 level today to complete a six-month base formation.
