Gold Trades to 20 Day Average for First Time Since Early February
Chart Prepared by Jamie Saettele, CMT using Marketscope 2.0
Commodity Analysis: Friday’s action following NFP is bullish. After the release, gold took out the previous 5 days’ lows, reversed, and closed near the high of the day and range. The near term action supports the previously presented bullish evidence. “Given sentiment as indicated by COT and the retracement of the rally from the 2/21 low stopping at the high volume day close (2/20 close in futures), a bullish bias is warranted against the 2/21 low. The counter to this is that a drop below 1555 could complete 5 waves down from 1697 and give way to a more persistent advance.”
Commodity Trading Strategy: Long against 1555, target 1650
LEVELS: 1500 1523 1555 1620 1639 1652
