Gold Slips Intraday but Ends Day Unchanged
Prepared by Jamie Saettele, CMT
“A previously rare occurrence has popped up 3 times since June. That is, gold has traded in a double inside day AFTER an outside day. Before June, one had to look back to 2009 to find this pattern. The pattern is a function of volatility contraction and the plethora of orders on each side of the narrow range is conducive to false breaks. Gold rallied to a new and has pulled back in order to satisfy the false break.” The piercing of the October low triggers a bearish bias against the high but failure to sustain the intraday drop leaves me neutral.
