Prices as of 10:49 a.m. EDT 13 January 2022 $1,816.50 (Basis the February 2022 Comex Contract).
Initial Target Price / Range: $1,800 - $1,810
Initial Timeframe: 13 January 2022 to 21 January 2022
Gold prices have risen from below $1,790 last week to test $1,830. CPM had advised a buy recommendation at $1,792.30 on 7 January.
CPM now recommends that profits be taken. There is potential for prices to retreat back toward $1,800 or $1,810 in the next week or so.
We maintain our view that prices have upward momentum, but (a) see that momentum relatively limited and (b) would not be surprised to see some profit-taking take gold down over the next several trading days.
Toward the last week of January the roll of the February Comex futures contract into April may push prices back toward $1,830. As of 12 January there were 29.9 million ouncs of February Comex open interest. Around 16.7 million ounces already have rolled into April.
CPM’s recommendation is that short-term investors might sell out any long positions they took last week or earlier, seeking to re-position on the long side at prices between $1,800 and $1,810.
The alternative would be to hold the long gold position and buy a put option structure (outright, spread, or other strategy) to protect against a pull back in prices and allow the investor to capitalize on both any such decline in prices while maintaining a long posture.
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.
