So far this year, speculative demand in the ETF arena along with central bank purchasing of gold has driven gold up from the lows in December of $1,046 to where we are trading today in the $1,340 area.
Those investors who had insight and bought on the lows are a very happy group, but the question remains now, where do we go from here? Some gold market watchers have reported seeing gold in a hospital emergency room in cardiac arrest.
The doctors have called for any member of the FOMC Committee to perform CPR, but no one at the FED could find a GPS device to locate the hospital. So the doctors have requested the electronic inflation pads to shock Gold, but it seems the available voltage is too low to make an impact. Meanwhile, the chants from all the metal dealers outside the hospital yelling “don’t let her die, don’t let her die,” have reached the ears of the doctors in the ER.
Oh look, it’s Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton arriving at the hospital.
I feel better already, I’m sure one of them can help gold recover. No, no, let’s not debate on what course of action to take. Look at those two who can’t agree on anything. The Doctor has determined to keep gold alive they will have to put her on life support ’til November.
Have a wonderful Friday.
