Gold futures in the December contract continued their bearish trend down another $7 this afternoon in New York currently trading at 1,220 an ounce trading far below their 20 & 100 day moving average as I’ve been recommending a short position when gold prices broke 1,278 which was the 4 week low at the time and if you took that recommendation make sure you place your stop above the 10 day high as I think there’s a high probability that prices will retest December 31st 2013th low of 1,186 in the coming months. The U.S dollar continues to make new highs against the foreign currencies which is very pessimistic gold prices also due to the fact that the Federal Reserve is ending quantitative easing as there is very little bullish fundamental news as all the interest currently is in the S&P 500 which is hitting another all-time high so continue to play this to the downside and if you are not in this market on the short side sit on the sidelines and look for any rally to get short while placing your proper stop loss of 2% of your account balance on any given trade.
