Gold/silver: $1800 do or die

Commentaries & Views

Gold and Silver this week are keying off U.S. Dollar weakness and Treasury strength. All were performing in such a direction ahead of Bloomberg’s reporting of President Biden’s plan to hike capital gains taxes, but the news has undoubtedly proven to be a tailwind so far. The move has helped bid Treasuries, and now the precious metals are acting as the safe-haven. Furthermore, this underpins the potential U.S. Dollar outflows for tax reasons and brings a tailwind to the theory that the worst global pandemic fears already factored in. Regardless of all these possible narratives, the reprieve in rates has been the most significant supportive factor in recent weeks.

Technicals: Gold and Silver are off to a strong start this session and look to close out a strong week. Each is teetering on the edge of really beginning to repair the February and March damage. Pullbacks yesterday responded to crucial first support levels, and today’s rebound pins each back above our momentum indicators. Continued action above 1785 and 26.22 on the session will prove supportive into the close of the week.
