Prices as of 2:35 p.m. EDT (19h35 GMT) 6 July 2021 $1,795 (Basis the August 2021 Comex Contract).
Initial Target Price/ Range: $1,780
Initial Timeframe: 7 July 2021 to 16 July 2021
Gold prices had been trading in a narrow range of $1,765 - $1,795 ($1,770 - $1,800) since around 17 June. This morning gold broke above that range, running to $1,815.70. By afternoon the thrill was gone and gold subsided back to $1,795.80.
CPM’s weekly video on Friday 2 July focused on a thesis that gold and silver prices (a) have been trading in relatively narrow, unvolatile, trading ranges for several weeks during June, but (b) seemed likely to be more volatile in July, possibly moving both sharply lower and sharply higher over the next four weeks.
Potential For Increased Volatility In Gold and Silver, CPM 2 July 2021
Markets got a taste of this on 6 July. That said, the move above $1,800 was predicated on the OPEC divisions, a consequent upward move in oil prices – which corrected sharply lower later that day, and concerns about the U.S. equity markets. The dollar showed mixed performance, but rose both with gold and then later during the day rose further as gold gave up half of its winnings.
CPM would not be surprised to see gold drop to $1,780 in the next eight trading days. It might even test that support around $1,770 - $1,765. Later in July CPM expects gold prices to strengthen, but the softness in today’s brief rally suggests softness for the next few trading days.
