Gold Price Off to Quiet Start

The Market Gage - Dillon Gage's Precious Metals Newsletter

The price of gold starts off the week on a quiet note. A lack of economic news around the globe causing light volume this morning in the CME gold and silver futures. Dollar index close to unchanged this morning also helps to keep the price of gold steady.

The commitment of traders report released Friday showed the funds reduced their net long position by 7,736 contracts week ending August ninth. Position reported 9,930 contracts of long liquidation and 1,594 contracts of short covering. Seems to me that some funds are getting impatient with the price of gold consolidating at these levels and so they are flattening out some of their positions to find a better place to invest their dollars.

The gold ETF market had small inflows on Friday and silver reported some redemptions.

Silver also sitting in a trading range with the price slightly higher on light volume.

Overall just a quiet summer Monday to start the work week.

If you read my report on Friday, you’ll remember one trader sang a song to me to indicate where he thought the market was going: “See you in September”

Well here’s my song for today. Let’s all join in:

Roll out those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer
Those days of soda and pretzels and beer
Roll out those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer
Dust off the sun and moon and sing a song of cheer.

Have a wonderful Monday.
