Yesterday, despite the decline in gold prices, I said I was still leaning long. Today, gold gave us a little move higher, pushing once more above the $1,200 mark. Silver is struggling with $16 again and still acting a little weaker.
I have to wonder a bit if the commodities bull is turning. I get mixed signals because I see gold mining stocks perking up, but energy plays kind of slacking now. With the overall market down today, and not much data to go on, what direction will be take?
I am still overall in the deflation camp and my best indicator right now for those who want to be long gold is to look at the dollar and see if we get a move below 97 and shake out some of the bullishness in other markets.
I hit most of the markets with my analysis below, so read that for further comments today. I think you’ll get a good feel for where I am with my present thinking on gold and silver as well as the rest of the markets I follow daily.
