CPM had a Sell signal with a $1,750 target last week through today. Gold got within our 0.2% margin of that this morning, touching $1,753.50 before recovering. The gold price decline today has to be seen in the context of a sharp rise in the dollar, which precipitated steep declines in a broad range of assets, from commodities including oil, base metals, precious metals and agricultural commodities to equity markets.
While gold appears a bit oversold at these levels, the short-term trend still is pointing lower. Additionally, CPM has been expecting prices to move somewhat lower on seasonal and economic conditions in the second and third quarters, so gold appears more likely to move sideways over the coming weeks and months.
While we are re-stating our $1,750 downside target for the next week, further weakness over the next seven months could take gold lower, toward $1,720 and even $1,700. Prices seem unlikely to decline much more than that given the plethora of pandemic, health, and political issues facing the world.
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.
