Gold continued lower today and then stalled out. I made a call in the trading room at Seeking Alpha to switch to JNUG/NUGT and we caught some of that nice ride up and went home flat for the day. We are still in that trading range for the metals and the dollar still gave us the inverse direction today telling us where the metals would go.
Beginning of the day gold was down double digits with the dollar over 99. Then we had the reversal in gold gaining $5 back and the dollar moving below 99. That’s it in a nutshell.
The markets moved up, then down then back up in a repeat of yesterday’s performance. After last weeks beat down this week we are getting a chance to catch our breath. So far each rally has been sold but I have a feeling tomorrow we finally get a good day higher. We’re still due for it. If for some reason we have another day of selling any strength, investors are going to start throwing in the towel. They have been fooled before and don’t want to lose what they made.
SVXY gave us a clue to go long the market when the DOW was still negative today. It was sitting there with no fear and the market responded as buyers came in.
Gold still under $1,100 and weak. Silver still under $14 and weak. Watch the dollar tomorrow for clues.
