Featuring views and opinions written by market professionals, not staff journalists.
Prices as of 10:28 p.m. EDT (15h28 GMT) 15 October 2021 $1,774.50 (Basis the December 2021 Comex Contract).
Initial Target Price/ Range: $1,750
Initial Timeframe: 15 October 2021 to 29 October 2021
Prices fell sharply today breaking below CPM Group’s previous sell recommendation of $1,775. Gold prices have been increasingly reacting to technical trading patterns rather than fundamental influences in recent weeks. Given that prices were not able to forcefully break above $1,800 on a sustained basis, they quickly sold off as investor took profits from long positions initiated earlier this week.
There are concerns about rising inflationary pressures, but there already have been several central banks rasing interest rates. This will help weigh on prices. Rising talk about continued inflation and moves by central bank to cap inflation is expected to cap gold pices as well. Gold prices are expected to test $1,750 over the next couple of weeks.
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.
