Prices as of 12:22 p.m. EDT (17h22 GMT) 13 October 2021 $1,795.20 (Basis the December 2021 Comex Contract).
Initial Target Price/ Range: $1,775
Initial Timeframe: 13 October 2021 to 29 October 2021
Gold prices jumped higher shortly after CPM had issued a Trade Recommendation this morning, when gold was trading around $1,760.50. Gold broke above $1,780 and rose to $1,797.40, preparing to test $1,800.
The surge in prices suggests investors and other market participants see the higher U.S. CPI inflation figures released this morning as indicative of higher inflation longer term, triggering technical levels for fresh long buying and stop-loss liquidation of shorts. CPM would not be surprised to see this short-term move give way over the next few days. Prices may continue to test $1,800, but if this level is not broken, a pivot back to short positions could take gold prices lower soon after. Markets are becoming more volatile, with gold no exception, as investors struggle to discern whether the Fed can control inflationary pressures.
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.
