Prices as of 10:15 a.m. EST (15h15 GMT) 4 February 2021 $1,789.00 (Basis the April 2021 Comex Contract).
Target Price / Range: $1,815
Timeframe: 04-02-2021 to 12-02-2021
Gold has dropped sharply, following a spike up late last week and on Monday. This morning prices dropped as low as $1,784, close to CPM’s near-term $1,780 sell objective. Given the decline, CPM would expect a recovery in the next day or so, possibly rising back to around $1,815 or $1,820.
Beyond that, CPM maintains its view of near-term gold price weakness, as discussed in the 20 January 2021 Trade Recommendation. While prices may recover in the next few days, downside exposure remains. $1,780 clearly is possible.
In CPM’s 20 January Trade Recommendation we wrote about the potential for a sharper spike similar to the $145 drop after 6 January, that could take gold briefly to $1,720 or $1,700. Such a decline cannot be ruled out given current market weakness as institutional investors are increasingly positioning themselves to profit from short-term lower prices.
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.
