  • Gold’s Breaks Below $1,270 – Third Time Lucky?

    August 16, 2017, 11:33 AM
    Gold’s Breaks Below ...

    The last couple of years and – in particular – the last couple of months were very difficult for gold traders – i.e. they were boring. Despite several huge daily price swings, the precious metals market has not been going anywhere, moving in and around the $1,100 - $1,300 price range. Gold got to the point where this lack of volatility is by itself an extreme sign pointing to a much bigger price swing in the market, as the periods of very high and very low volatility tend to follow each other. Gold seems to have once again topped after moving to a long-term resistance line and the previous highs. Will the upcoming decline be any different than the previous local downswings that were simply followed by yet another rally up to $1,300?

  • Crude Oil - Precious Metals Link in August

    August 9, 2017, 9:14 AM
    Crude Oil - ...

    In the previous month crude oil gained almost 9% as declines in crude oil, gasoline and distillates inventories continued to support the price of the commodity. In that environment light crude climbed above the psychologically important barrier of $50 and closed July above it. Despite this bullish development, the price of the black gold slipped below it at the beginning of August. Is this just a bigger pullback or the first sign of a longer correction?
