All metals but Silver are moderately lower this morning. Here’s what I see now:
Gold has pulled back this morning, but all of the action since last night is within Friday’s range. The bulls would not like to see a close below Friday’s low of 1126.9 (December contract). Despite the rise last week, we are still not significantly overbought. I continue to see movement towards 1147.30.
Silver is hovering around Friday’s close as I write this, and we have an inside day so far. I continue to favor movement towards 15.770 (December).
Platinum is moderately weak this morning, after a bullishly confirming close on Friday. I continue to look for more strength in this market. A close today under 972.60 would be a black cloud on the bulls’ horizon, however.
The range of Friday and today (so far) have been within Thursday’s range. A breakout of Thursday’s high (618.30 basis December) and low (594.40) will clue us in to further movement. I still favor higher prices and a test of 625.80.
