Time Stamp
Prices as of 9:37 a.m. EST (14h37m GMT) 8 November 2019 $1,463.10 (Basis the December 2019 Comex Contract).

Direction: Stand Aside

Target Price / Range: $1,400 -$1,520

Timeframe: 08-11-2019 to 15-11-2019

Gold prices dropped below $1,480 Thursday, triggering heavy selling. This was in line with financial market optimism related to a potential positive move in the U.S.-Chinese trade war and overall global economic conditions. Gold is trading at a major trigger point Friday, around $1,450 - $1,460. Prices could move $40 - $50 higher or lower at this point. The risks of going long or short physical, futures, or forwards are too great in CPM’s view, since the probability is 50-50 of a move in either direction. A risk:reward ratio of 1:1 is not attractive to us. We prefer higher reward probabilities to risks. CPM would neither go long or short at this point. In such a situation our advice to paying clients would be to buy a butterfly strangle option, buying both a put and a call to reduce our risks while positioning the investor to benefit from a move in either direction, or moves in both directions in quick succession. CPM works with accredited investors in options and other investments. For physical or futures investors we would look to reenter as buyers or sellers after prices move off of the current range.

Note: Discretion should be allowed at +/- $0.50 from the target.
