I don’t deal in conspiracies, but zerohedge did point out what happened shortly after the GDP revised numbers came out. Gold & Silver Slammed In Mini-Flash-Crash
In other news, Eurogroup meeting ends with no deal on Greece. Who would want to deal with a failed country that doesn’t understand simple math? With that news and the lower revision of GDP, the stock market tumbled triple digits. You would think gold should be moving higher with the safe haven status it has, but the strength in the dollar is keeping it at bay for the present time. While market makers can keep it at bay and push it lower (my theory) too, when gold finally bottoms it will be a springing effect unleashed on the world and market makers won’t any longer be able to stop it (my theory).
If you are not dollar cost averaging into an allocation today, you are missing out. No one knows when gold will stop declining. I don’t have a crystal ball that tells me where the bottom is. I do feel I have a knack for reading the data and reading the markets well enough to know when to write it though. I honestly can’t wait to write the all in article, but at the same time have to look at price action to give me the present truth. Price action for gold isn’t pretty.
