Gold fell before the market opened and continued to fall as the dollar rose over 96 again today. I thought we might get a move higher because gold wasn’t breaking down, but it just didn’t happen yet. I would look at a fall below 96 on the Dollar Index as a reason to get in gold which it did at the end of the day and I speculated with a small JNUG position. A move above 97 on the Index is a reason to go short gold.
Just look at this 1 day chart and you can see why gold was a difficult play today, but for whatever reason I still like it especially if we fall below 96 further.
You would think that with the afternoon fall in gold we would have got more of a push up but even the mining stocks, which ended the day near the lows as the stock market too took another hit.

Let’s Turn To Supply Issues
We presently are seeing some products extend even further out for delivery. Is this the sign of a bear market in metals? Yet the prices are struggling to move higher. Something has to give soon. I know my suppliers aren’t happy about having to tell us dealers their clients won’t receive their metals for a couple months on some products and I know clients don’t want to wait that long when they are used to delivery the next week. This is VERY abnormal but it IS reality.
Luckily I do have the best prices in the U.S. and if you wanted to pay a little more I can get you metals next week if your money is in house. While supply is somewhat an issue for some products, getting a good price over spot is more important and we can do that for you. Just give us a call at 888-604-6534.
