Gold prices declined this morning as dollar strength and rising bond yields weighed on prices. There is increasing inflation concerns in financial markets, which CPM continues to see as misplaced. Regardless of our views, the market is focusing on potential inflation.
Since the end of January gold has risen more slowly than it has fallen. The roll of the February contract is behind the market now, suggesting less support for prices. Technically, prices appear to be increasingly becoming vulnerable to a sell-off. The upward trend that had existed last year is on pause for now. CPM has been expecting somewhat slower upward price moves in gold this year, especially in the second and third quarters. This may be unfolding now.
The potential for further declines both in the very short term covered by these Trade Recommendations and over the next seven months remains. Past reports have referred to $1,720 and $1,740 as possible in downward spikes short term. Longer term we expect gold prices to strengthen amid a plethora of financial, economic, political, and social issues confronting the world and individual nations.
