The price of gold continues to march forward even in the face of Fed Presidents’ comments calling for three rate hikes this year and the Dow setting a new record for the tenth straight day.
Also setting a new record for 2017 are inflows into the Gold ETFs, sitting at 65,321,062 ounces being held.
Far East Gold traders buying Gold overnight following their American counterparts. One Wall Street Gold trader I spoke with this morning indicated that at the 200-day moving average mark he will take off all of his gold position that he has been holding since the $1,220 level as he sees this level around $1,261 spot to be the next HARD level of resistance to break thru.
A lower dollar index and softer ten year yields helping gold along.
I can’t disagree with my trader friend, taking profits here, as I believe this market needs a breather and I expect that will come today with the dollar strengthening and slightly stalling the gold rally temporally.
In the event the 200-day moving average level is penetrated, the next soft level of resistance is $1,265 and nothing till $1,292 after that.
The price of silver is just following the rally in gold. Some dealers reporting lowering premiums for some silver products that they are overstocked with just to move some inventory.
Have a wonderful Friday.
