Gold is still hovering above the $1,200 mark, trying to find direction. I think it will finally get some direction this week if we get the Greece situation resolved one way or the other. Below is the chart from Friday.
Silver is staying above it’s $16 resistance as well.
I would use these figures as your trading signal to be bullish or bearish, along with what the dollar does this week. If there is a resolution with Greece, temporary as it may be, the markets may look at this as bullish for the Euro and by default negative for the dollar. This could light a spark in gold and silver for the short term. Of course the opposite would be true as well.
From a trading perspective, I don’t care. I will jump on whatever the trend is. But anyone who reads what I write daily knows that my mind is made up on gold still falling below $1,000 an ounce bringing silver down with it. As I delve into the writing of my next book, Illusions of Wealth, the research is more than solidifying my thinking.
Another good source I utilize as one of my indicators is the team at Elliottwavetrader.net and Avi Gilbert. Recently, an analyst from Avi’s group, Zachary Mannes was interviewed by BNN (Business News Network) for a segment called; On the Brink of a Gold Bull Run? I suggest you watch the video and check out Avi’s site. Here is the link to the video.
Avi thinks we get one more low in gold and has also written an article on where gold will be in the next 40 to 50 years. The next great bull market: Gold $25,000
