Initial Timeframe: 11 January 2022 to 21 January 2022
Gold prices have been making higher highs and higher lows since the second half of December. This is technically positive for higher gold prices, since support for gold continues to hold at higher levels. Prices moved up today as the Fed signaled that there was enough stimulus already in the market and that tightening could begin earlier than anticipated. This may suggest that the Fed is becoming increasingly concerned about inflation given the recent headline numbers in recent months. Tomorrow’s U.S. inflation figures are expected to continue to be high, but a large deviation has the potential to disappoint and could weigh on prices if it comes in lower than expected. Higher than expected inflation also could weigh on gold prices, since it would suggest that the Fed could tighten sooner rather than later.
How the market digests tomorrow’s CPI figures will influence where gold prices will head toward. It is recommended to continue holding the buy recommendation issued last week. Given the uncertainty surrounding market reaction to tommorow’s U.S. CPI figures, it is recommended to place a stop order at $1,815. A break below $1,815 could push prices toward $1,800. If prices do move higher, there already is a long position in place, and depending on how the markets respond to the CPI figures CPM Group will issue a new recommendation.
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.
