Gold was at $1,886.10 on 21 December, the date of CPM’s previous Trade Recommendation. We said to buy gold as a short-term investor with an initial target of $1,910. We also have been writing for some time that we expected that prices could jump as high as $2,000 per ounce in January or February, before falling back.
Gold rose about $50 this morning, 4 January. It rose in line with stocks, oil, other commodities.
We still expect gold prices to rise further in the next two to six weeks, and $2,000 may be a reasonable objective. Political developments in the United States over the next two or three days will weigh importantly on gold and other financial asset markets.
That said, with prices $50 higher in one day, the idea of a short-term pull back, to $1,900 or some other level, may well be realized.
Our advice to our investor clients would be to hold on to their gold, not take profits, but to buy shorter dated put options to protect against a short-term drop back in prices, and to profit from such. If prices dropped $50 the puts could be sold back to the market, a nice profit would have been generated, and the investor would still be long physical gold.
Note: Discretion should be allowed at +/- 0.20% of the price at the time each TR is issued from the target. Recommendations are valid until the target date or a new Trade Recommendation or message is issued by CPM.
