Gold Flashes A Clear
by Chris Vermeulen
What a crazy day! The Fed’s
announced plans to buy long-term Treasury bonds and increase its purchases of
mortgage backed securities today sending everything higher except the US dollar
which plummeted nearly 3% Wednesday.
Gold sold down into previous support
levels during the morning only to snap back making a 7% price swing on the day.
Gold closed up 3.4% on the session with an enormous engulfing bullish candle.
The strong close sets the stage for a steady to higher open Thursday morning.
Take a look at these charts to get a
feel for where gold prices stand in the grand scheme of things.
Gold Miners Index – Weekly Chart
As you can see above miner stocks
tested support and is currently bouncing off that level. This chart indicates we
could see miner stocks surge an average of 20% higher in the next couple months.
Sorry the chart is smaller than I thought, tough to see.
Gold Equities VS Gold – Weekly Chart
Gold stocks surged higher Wednesday
breaking above our short term resistance trend line. This chart is showing next
resistance at 0.40 level which means gold stocks could out perform the price of
gold 16% over the next few months. This is very bullish for the price of gold
Gold Bugs HUI Daily Chart
This chart shows gold stocks surging
an average of 9% Wednesday while gold only surged 3.4%. Gold stocks are
currently testing resistance at the 200 moving average and multi week high. A
breakout above the Feb high will most likely trigger a surge higher in both gold
and gold stocks.
Gold Bullion Price Action – GLD
Gold has been trending higher
bouncing off the channel lines and has bounced twice off support in the past 6
trading days. Today’s bounce was massive and very bullish. I expect gold to open
higher Thursday with over night traders jumping on the band wagon around the
Gold Trading Conclusion:
Wednesday’s reversal candle carries
about 7% risk from the low of the day if one is to go long here. Gold (GLD)
signaled a buy signal when it bounced off the channel support trend line a week
ago at the $89 level. I waited for a breakout of the short term resistance trend
line before I took a position.
I have had a lot of emails today
wondering how I did not get shaken out of my long position in gold today.
I watch the markets every day and
trade accordingly. If I am around I do not set stop orders, I like to watch the
price movements and with gold currently at support levels (50 EMA, trend line
support, and previous lows) I decided to hold the position in hopes for a
bounce. Things worked out well with Bernanke sending out a message of good news
forcing a bounce higher. Thank You Bernanke!
Trading is a complete mix of art and
science and if you have the time and skills to focus on it full time it’s
amazing how in sync you can be with the market. It’s much more difficult for EOD
(end of day) traders to avoid whipsaw price action like this without their stop
orders getting hit. Gold looks like a good buy signal with today’s price action.
I expect we will get some type of pullback as profit takers step in and pull
prices back down for a day or two.
