Gold prices broke below CPM Group’s previous sell recommendation of $1,740 earlier today. CPM recommends taking profits and standing aside. At his speech in Jackson Hole, Fed chair Powell reaffirmed that the Fed’s primary focus was reducing inflation even if it came at the cost of economic growth. Expectations of tighter monetary policy are expected to weigh on gold prices. What Powell said at his speech was to a large extent already factored into the market. While gold prices broke below $1,740, an important support level for gold prices, on an intraday basis, CPM believes that gold prices should settle below $1,740 before initiating a fresh short position.
CPM has one-month, three-month ranges and eight-quarter quarterly price projections with greater discussion of the factors behind CPM's analyses provided in CPM's monthly subscription service, the Precious Metals Advisory.
