Gold futures in the June contract are trading below their 20 day but above their 100 day moving average telling you that the trend currently is mixed as prices are still trading near two-year lows and if this commodity could talk it would bark in my opinion as it is becoming a tremendous dog in recent months trading lower by $40 in Tuesday’s trade settling last Friday at 1,319 and going out this Thursday afternoon at 1,295 finishing down about $25 for the trading week. If prices break 1,277 I would be recommending a short position putting your stop above the 10 day high with the possibility of prices heading towards major support at 1,240 and then maybe the possibility of lower prices as it seems that nothing can make gold prices go up not even the fact of the Ukrainian crisis & the recent stock market choppiness as demand for gold at this current time is very weak with very little interest as well. Markets go up due to the fact that money flows come into that commodity and all the money flow is going into stocks at the current time as complacency has set in as nobody seems to care about gold or see any reason to own it at this time, however in my opinion I do believe worldwide problems will come back and I do think losses in gold are limited so I would look for a better trending market & sit on the sidelines unless 1,277 is broken on a closing basis.
CHART STRUCTURE: EXCELLENT
