Gold failed to follow through on Tuesday’s big rally, at the same time making a lower high, indicating that there is more room on the downside. The resignation of White House economic adviser Gary Cohn helped gold rally on Tuesday night, but the metal has sold off since.

After making a double top in mid-February, gold has worked its way lower and is poised to test the $1,300 support level. News that should drive the price of gold higher has not done so, which is just another indication of the underlying struggles.

The suppression of the dollar by the Fed and central banks around the world should be buoying the price of gold but it’s not. Our view is the dollar is about to break out to the upside, which will add more pressure to an already weak metals market.

We are long-term gold bulls but have too many concerns at the levels that both gold and silver are trading. This is a time to observe the markets and wait for clues on direction. Let the bulls and bears battle in this congestion range, which is filled with uncertainty.
