The Goldman Sachs Precious Metals Index (GPX), ended the week down another 1.55 percent at 1615.28. This closing price has decisively broken the weekly support of 1652.66 made in June of 2014. The next major support level to watch now is 1584.59, the weekly low made in December of 2013. I have been highlighting this weakness in precious metals for a while and it seems as if investors are finally beginning to take note of this development now.
Furthermore, should the US Dollar remain strong, there is a chance that the December lows are tested next week. There was notable weakness in both Gold and Silver on Friday and this could carry over to next week, so best to stay on your toes.
