Prices as of 10:13 a.m. EDT (15h13 GMT) 13 October 2021 $1,760.50 (Basis the December 2021 Comex Contract).
Initial Target Price/ Range: $1,750
Initial Timeframe: 13 October 2021 to 29 October 2021
Gold prices have been trending lower since peaking in early June around $1,900. After having fallen to test $1,725 in late September, prices moved higher and have been holding above $1,750 since the start of the month. Recent headlines have provided some support to gold, but prices have not been able to firmly move much higher than $1,780.
On 30 September CPM issued a Gold Trade Recommendation at $1,757.40, suggesting that while we expect gold prices to move higher over the fourth quarter prices were vulnerable to a decline to as low as $1,710 - $1,720. Prices have held above $1,740 since then. They rose sharply this morning, to $1,778.50, but fell back to around $1,760.50 after the U.S. September CPI data were released.
Today’s inflation figures release about U.S. conditions initially pushed prices lower, but as prices tested support levels gold then turned direction and moved higher. Then they declined once more.
Gold may remain between $1,740 and $1,780 for a short time more, moving to test $1,750 during the next few days. At some point prices will break out of this range, with the scope for a sharper move in either, or both directions: There could be a spike lower followed by a spike higher in the next three months.
Initial Target Prices and Timeframes are just that: Initial. If CPM does not issue a new Recommendation during or after that time it indicates that CPM is maintain the posture in the most recent Trade Recommendation.
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.
CPM’s preferred investment strategies use physical, futures, forwards, and options.
