GLD Bullion Inventory Signal For Trading Gold Producers

25 August 2016 After Market Close - GLD bullion holdings decreased. Wait for a second decrease event to go short or two increase events to open a long position.

3 August 2016 Note: given the strong 6Q/3Q/1Q/1M up trend in gold prices (see plots in on the left hand side of page) as well as the frequent churns in 2016, it appears that a change of rules is in order -- to that end I will be back testing a rule that uses double drop (or double add) when the move is counter to the current 6Q/3Q/1Q/1M trend. With this rule, the 3 August decrease in holdings would not have generated an exit long positions signal.

Date (AMC) Signal (for next day execution)

Signal Definitions and Notes:
Out - Waiting Long Confirmation: No action requird. Previous GLD change was a GLD inflow. A second inflow event is still required to trigger an Open Long signal.
Out - Waiting Short Confirmation: No action requird. Previous GLD change was a GLD outflow. A second outflow event is still required to trigger an Open Short signal.
Open Short - two consecutive outflow events (with possible zero flow days in between) occurred this day which is the signal to short gold producers. Use additional factors to select best short candidates.
Close Short - a GLD inflow occurred. Close gold equity short positions.
Open Long - two consecutive GLD inflow events (with possible zero flow days in between) is the signal to go long gold producers. Use additional factors to select best long candidates.
Close Long - a GLD outflow occurred. Close gold equity long positions.
Note 1: All trades are executed on the following trading day since the GLD signal is generated after markets have closed for the day
Note 2: The GLD algorithm is fully detailed, along with back test results from 2004 (the year GLD was launched), in Trading Gold Producers Using GLD Bullion Inventory Levels As A Signal .

Gold and Silver Miner Market Capitalization Estimates

TSX/TSXv Grouping TSX/TSXv Total Market Capitalization
(Millions of US$)
Gold & Silver Producers $115,536
Gold & Silver Streamers $22,479
Gold & Silver Developers $11,481
Gold & Silver Explorers $7,122
Total TSX/TSXv Gold & Silver Miners $156,619
Market Cap Estimate For the World's
Gold & Silver miners (Millions of US$)

Note: All TSX/TSXv companies with at least 12.5% of their total in situ metal value coming from either gold or silver and which match the category definitions, are included in the above table.

Gold & Silver Producers category includes those companies that report quarterly production counts and revenues for gold and/or silver production.

Gold & Silver Streamers category includes companies focused on creating gold/silver streams or royalty income flows.

Gold & Silver Developers category includes companies with an explicit plan to start production in the near term or which have a spending profile and work plans to imply potential future production.

Gold & Silver Explorers category includes companies that are primarily focused on expanding resource counts at one or more existing gold and silver projects without indicating plans for future production.

Generator and grass roots companies are not covered.

Market capitalization is always computed using closing market price (expressed in US$ using exchange rates in effact at market closing time) and the issued share of each company. Updates are made daily after the TSX market close.

TSX/TSXv Market Share Assumptions: the TSX/TSXv gold producers are estimated to represent approximately 33% of the world's gold producers since the TSX/TSXv gold producers report approximately 1/3 of the world's yearly gold production. The streamers, explorers and developers are estimated to represent very roughly 50% of the world total for companies in those groupings.

The Market Cap Estimate For the World's Gold & Silver miners is computed based on the actual TSX/TSXv market capitalizations, computed on a daily basis here using closing market prices and material filings as available at the TSX market closing time, and applying the market share assumptions detailed above.

Detailed fundamental metrics on the TSX/TSXv gold and silver miners, including per company details such as:

  • gold and silver reserves / resources breakdowns

  • enterprise value per ounce of gold reserve (or resource)

  • average ore value per tonne

  • breakdown of percentage of gold equivalent ounces by country (2 letter ISO codes)

  • options to fully customize report to your specific needs

are available on a subscription basis.
