Despite gold and silver’s slight move up today, they are still acting weak and more of the miners are also acting weak as attested to GDX turning red on the weekly ETF Trading Service we offer today. The dollar falling a little kept gold and silver in the green but even with the stock market doing well, miners wanted to do something else today dragging GDX and NUGT down.
I had this to say to someone regarding gold today from a trading perspective;
We have been in a range but so has the dollar. I’d like to see $1,300 on gold breached and $19 on silver and a move over 97 on the dollar for the next leg. Gold and silver triggered red on the weekly Friday which means I am neutral on them right now. Miners are still green but I think will fall with the overall market, which I assume is near at hand.
Anything in between right now is guess work and churning markets don’t offer the best trades so best to be patient and wait for the direction. I will always have an opinion and lean a certain way, but there is always another sector that can have a better setup and I’ll play that while I wait for metals to sort itself out.
