Prices as of 9:17 a.m. EDT (14h17 GMT) 19 May 2020 $1,735.40 (Basis the June 2020 Comex Contract).
Target Price / Range: $1,765 - 1,775
Timeframe: 19-05-2020 to 29-05-2020
Gold blew past our previous $1,760 target on 18 May, touching $1,776 before falling back to trade around $1,730 - $1,740 the rest of the day and into 19 May. While prices remain susceptible to spikes lower, the over-riding trend remains to the upside. Optimism about moving toward restarting European and North American economies coupled with continued massive fiscal and monetary stimulus programs have boosted equities and commodities. This optimism may be misplaced and possibly premature. Petroleum now is above $30 per barrel, the Saudis having made their point to the Russian government. Additionally, there are still 25.8 million ounces of June Comex positions that need to be rolled forward, closed out, or delivered into, which should support gold prices into the end of May.
Note: Discretion should be allowed at +/- $0.50 from the target.
