Gold Price Is On The Move

July 29, 2017

I was looking for some excellent earnings numbers this past week and in the week to come. To be sure they’ve been lacklustre.

My thinking was last week and the week to come would be great…and perhaps compel stocks higher for a week or two after and then. Consequently, we’d be in for a nice period of consolidation until about November when we’d see strength return out of bases -- and we’d might be in for a nice winter.

Nonetheless, the market has other plans…and we are seeing mixed results and choppy stock action which tells me we may be ready for a couple or few months of consolidation starting pretty much now.

Time will tell, but the action has moved to sloppy…so I’m toning down my complacency!

The metals continue to act great and are moving higher, leading me into that sector on a small basis. Consequentl, I may be into miners more as the days progress.

Gold prices gained 1.63% this past week as it moved above the moving average cluster at $1,250. We’re now free to move to $1,300 where resistance is likely.

Also, with tensions rising in North Korea there is no telling if we get an extraordinary move from gold. However, that chance is slim if recent years are testament,

Silver prices rose 1.45% this past week and has some heavy resistance at $16.75 to move past idle.

There are some heavy moving averages around $17.15, but $17.75 is the level on this chart I’d look for resistance as we likely move to $18.50 on this move.

I’ve been wrong many times before….so we can only wait and see, and trade accordingly.

Platinum was flat, losing just 0.09% but is looking set for a run. A break above the $940 area would be the buy level - and $970 where we will likely see resistance appear as we move towards $990.

Palladium gained a hefty 4.24% but remains range bound for now. The sweet range from $830 to $880 is being tested right now and is likely to be broken to the upside. Highs are $913 back in 2014 and only time will tell if we breakout into new highs or not.

It looks great on this daily chart…but the monthly chart is still pretty parabolic which means more consolidation could be due before new highs are seen, but....

If gold and silver continue to strengthen, we should see palladium move into blue sky territory.

Enjoy your weekend…as I’m beginning to be more cautious with my trades now and thinking about locking in some gains and taking a couple months mostly off while trades setup again for us.
