Gold Trading Update: Short-Term Bearish
We has mentioned that as the US Dollar up-trend continued with interest rates, this could have a negative effect on Gold futures prices and precious metals. This looks to have occurred as gold futures broke below key trend line support on Wednesday into Thursday.
Note that this goes completely against what the new thinking was on Silver and precious metals being the new “Go-To” after GME’s success.
Given the strongly negative commercial hedger positioning while large speculators were bullish in CFTC positioning, it’s thought that Thursday kicked off a decline which could move back to new lows before any bottom and rally.
