Prices as of 10:00 a.m. EDT (15h00 GMT) 12 August 2020 $1,946.20 (Basis the December 2020 Comex Contract).
Target Price / Range: $2,000
Timeframe: 12-08-2020 to 21-08-2020
Gold and other precious metals prices have been extremely volatile over the past three weeks, rising more than $260 between 20 July and 7 August. Profit-taking then set in, taking gold as low as $1,874.20 in Asian market times on 12 August.
The volatility reflects enormous uncertainty over U.S. political developments, including a second round of pandemic financial support programs stalled in Congress. Additionally, there are issues related to the U.S. China Trade War, including a review of the Phase I trade deal between China and the U.S. on 15 August. There are in fact many additional political, economic, financial, and public health uncertainties contributing to the volatility in precious metals markets, as investors seek places to park large volumes of money.
These uncertainties and the consequent precious metals volatility are expected to continue.
Gold prices should be expected to trade a wide range, perhaps between $1,820 and $2,100, over the next three weeks.
Note: Discretion should be allowed at +/- $2.00 from the target.
