Prices as of 10:55 am EDT (15h55 GMT) 5 June 2020 $1,673.90 (Basis the August 2020 Comex Contract).
Target Price / Range: $1,640
Timeframe: 05-06-2020 to 12-06-2020
Gold prices are dropping, breaking below technical support levels as investors unwind large long positions with a view that the worse of the recessionary contractions are behind the economies of North America and Europe, and that monetary authorities and governments will be able to manage recovery. Those expectations, or hopes, may be premature, but regardless there is a move away from risk hedges at this point, moving into the traditional period of weak demand and prices for gold. Prices could strengthen early next week, as many problems remain, but such a move, possibly back toward $1,700 or even $1,720, would seem to CPM more likely to be a pause in a broader intermediate trend that could take gold to $1,640. Prices could weaken further over the next three months, depending on economic and political trends.
Note: Discretion should be allowed at +/- $0.50 from the target.
