Current thoughts 9/15/16

From the Trading Desk

The downward pressure on gold continued yet again today as it traded lower for the fifth time in the last six trading sessions.  Some heavy selling emerged around the NY open which pushed gold down to just above its 100 day moving average.  But, yet again, the 100 DMA held as support and gold was aided in its recovery by weaker than expected US economic data.  Retail sales in the US fell .30% in August, declining for the first time in five months, which helped the yellow metal recover to $1,320 before ultimately trending lower as the trading day wound down.  The short term trend remains downward for gold and it looks like the key $1,300 – $1,305 area will be tested again before next week’s FOMC meeting.  Silver has managed to hold up better than gold this week and is consolidating around $19.  Near term support is coming in at the 100 day moving average of $18.50, a technical indicator it hasn’t been below since February of this year.

Gold and silver are really fighting their $1,300 and $19 resistance areas of late. But gold was still weak again today, even though the market was higher, miners were higher and the dollar didn’t fall but 5 cents. Something is up.

I still say the dollar will be the key and with China, Hong Kong and South Korea on holiday tomorrow, I don’t expect too  much trouble, but what an opportunity to do something if Europe and the U.S. want to have some fun at these countries expense by pushing prices against their positions. It’s good to be the king!

I will be writing an article soon on SDR’s and what Jim Rickards is up to scaring everyone to get out of the dollar. You’ll appreciate my candid take on what the truth of the matter is.
