Prices as of 1:30 EDT (118h30 GMT) 23 April 2021 $1,777.60 (Basis the June 2021 Comex Contract).
Target Price / Range: $1,805 - $1,815
Timeframe: 26 April 2021 to 30 April2021
Gold prices have risen in the past two weeks, with most of the increase on 15 April. Gold has pushed toward $1,800 in the past three trading days, but has not yet broken above it.
Gold has been rising primarily due to falling U.S. Treasury interest rates. There has been strong demand for U.S. bonds over other sovereign debt over the past two weeks, despite better European economic prospects. A weaker dollar also has encouraged short-term investors to buy gold.
Prices could and should be expected to fall back, but it might be a week or two before that happens. In the next week investors should not fight the trend toward higher prices. CPM expects gold to break above $1,800 and make a run for $1,805 - $1,815 before dropping back in early May.
CPM’s 8 April Precious Metals Advisory report had $1,770 as the potential high for April, and $1,800 as possible in May and June. Our view is $1,800 may be seen next week, the last week of April. We also continue to expect seasonal weakness in prices during the next three months.
