Gold prices went in the opposite direction of our last buy trade recommendation, issued on 21 September. Instead they hit and fell below our previous 15 September Sell target of $1,655. This was an important support level. CPM would like to see how gold prices respond to this support level being breached briefly today before issuing the next direction on prices. There are reasons to support both a bounce off this level as well as a break below this level.
Gold and silver fell sharply this morning along with most other commodities, currencies, equities, and corporate bonds. The strength in the U.S. dollar, the relative strength in the U.S. economy compared to other major economies, and higher U.S. Treasury bond yields are expected to weigh on gold prices.
In addition to economic and currency market trends weighing on gold, the potential for some alleviation in international political tensions due to developments in the U.S., Russian, and Chinese governments over the next six weeks may also add to short-term downward pressures on gold as a safe haven asset.
CPM continues to think that various political factors ranging from those between Russia and the West over Ukraine, the Chinese National Communist Party Congress in the middle of October, and the U.S. mid-term elections in November are all factors that could potentially drive gold prices lower in the near term, but not necessarily represent longer term negatives for gold.
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.
While short-term trade recommendations provide high risk – high reward opportunities for investors, it is difficult to capture the complex web of factors affecting precious metals prices and the nuanced CPM analyses of these factors that goes into our firm’s price projections. In addition to these short-term outlooks, CPM Group provides clients enhanced trade recommendations that include one and three month price projections, as part of our Retail Investor Program.

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 maintains the posture in the most recent Trade Recommendation.
Position may be closed out once target price is reached, within the noted discretion or until CPM provides new trade recommendation. CPM may have reported to have closed out of prior trade recommendation at its discretion before publicly publishing new trade recommendation due to processing time.
Discretion should be allowed at +/- 0.20% of the price at the time each TR is issued from the target.
CPM’s preferred investment strategies use physical, futures, forwards, and options.
