Precious Metal Futures-- The precious metals this week traded in a very tight trading range which is very unusual because these are volatile commodities with gold trading in a 3 week range as exchange traded products were reduced for the 17th consecutive week pressuring prices once again, however this Friday prices rallied about $9 at 1,387 ounce in the August contract. Prices for the week were up very slightly but my opinion I still believe prices are headed lower in gold at this point in time especially with a pessimistic commodity market and very weak dollar which has not propelled prices higher and that has been very concerning if you are bullish because once the dollar starts to rally again you could see some heavy pressure in the gold market coming weeks. Silver futures are still trading below their 20 & 100 day moving average with great chart structure settling last Friday at 21.74 an ounce settling right around $22 this Friday afternoon up slightly for the week but still right near 2 ½ year lows and I’m still recommending a short position due to the fact of terrific chart structure allowing you place a stop at 10 day high which is at 21.75 currently risking around $750 per contract if you trading the mini contract.
