Gold ‘Way Oversold’: Tim Seymour

Gold Approaches 'Death Cross'
As gold closes below $1,600, the Fast Money traders discuss their favorite plays on gold now. Jeff Korzenik, formerly at Fifth Third Bank, explains why you should invest in the re-shoring movement of bringing back manufacturing jobs to the U.S.

As gold approaches its "death cross," Tim Seymour of EmergingMoney.com said Wednesday that he sees opportunity in the metal and a couple of miners.

"I would actually say that gold right now at an 11 RSI and getting back to the lows of May is way oversold," he said. "You're effectively at a double-bottom."

On CNBC's "Fast Money," Seymour brushed off the so-called "death cross," when an asset's 50-day moving average dips below its 200-day moving average. The phenomenon ostensibly signals a bear market ahead.

"This chart doesn't scare me," he said. "It might be an opportunity."

Seymour also saw a shift in gold mining companies.

"The correlation of the gold miners to the metal is something that may be ending," he said.

His top two picks, Seymour added, were Harmony and Barrick, which operates in less politically unstable areas.
