As we start this short week, investors seemed to be focused on other things like the religious holidays and spring break which are right at our doorstep. Surprisingly, we find the spot price of Gold under pressure, even with a softening dollar index.
Over the weekend, U.S. Secretary Mnuchin said U.S/China trade talks are in final stages, and that the extent of the agreement could surprise many. These kinds of statements keep investors focused on equities.
According to the charts, the spot price of Gold must hold the $1,282.50 level in order for the bulls to feel comfortable that they hold the right cards.
If not, the charts indicate that a selloff could occur bringing the price down to the next level of support at $1,260. This market pressure is just caused by a lack of news that would attract buyers back into the market. It’s just that simple.
The good news from the U.S. Mint is that total sales for Gold Eagles in the first quarter of 2019 was up by 33.3% over last year.
There is not much more to report on this quiet Monday morning.
Have a wonderful Monday.
