Gold futures in the June contract are trading above their 20 & 100 day moving average telling you that trend has turned higher after settling last Friday at 1,303 going out today at 1,318 up $15 dollars for the trading week as money flowed out of stocks and into bonds and gold. I am neutral in the gold market currently so I’m not recommending any position as the trend is not strong as the chart structure in gold is poor as well which does not allow you to place tight stops minimizing your risk so wait for better chart pattern to develop before entering a new position. If your bullish gold prices look at bull call spreads possibly for the month of June or if you’re bearish look at a bear puts spreads for the month of June limiting your risk to what the premium costs.
CHART STRUCTURE: POOR
