Traders are either in cash or short awaiting a renewed trading signal to get long gold. Though I am attempting to give the upside the benefit of the doubt vis a vis the Annual Forecast Model, time is running out. If we get a clear buy signal, I will jump back in and notify you with the view that should be looking for an intermediate top.
Precious metals rallied on Monday and Tuesday but then fell on Wednesday and Friday to finish the week nearly unchanged. Most interesting, the stock market also rallied early last week before declining at the end of the week. And the Dollar declined early last week before rising the last couple of days. So, stocks and precious metals seem to be trading together, inversely to the Dollar. However, notice that metals finished near unchanged for the week despite the rise in the US Dollar. Obviously, there is more to the precious metal story than the Dollar. Fears over the Greek credit crisis and credit troubles in a number of other countries are obviously providing a base for gold.
With fears over credit coming from Greece and around the world on one side and a strong Dollar, for now, on the other, gold is caught in a trading range of approximately 1100-1140. Last week, gold bullion traded as high as 1134.40 and as low as 1100.50, closing at 1107.90, up 6.40 from the previous week. All this while the US Dollar Index rallied 0.959. Silver though fell 0.11 to 16.96, platinum remained unchanged at 1605, palladium rose 4 to 465, and copper declined 0.0075 to 3.3725.
On Thursday, volatility in the price of gold fell to its lowest level in seven months based on the CBOE Gold Volatility Index. Friday’s sharp decline in gold lifted the Volatility Index off those lows, but it still remains very low by historical standards. Volatility was last in August 2009, right before gold rallied from the 950 level to over 1200.
