Gold prices have surpassed CPM Group’s last buy recommendation of $1,760. CPM recommends taking profit and standing aside. While CPM remains positive on gold over the next few months, gold prices have run up very sharply over the past few days and are beginning to look overbought. There are various Fed governors that will speak this week that are likely to continue driving the point that Fed policy is likely to remain on a tightening path until there is greater confidence that inflation is being brought under control. This is likely to deflate some of the upward move in gold prices. Prices could back off from current levels in the short term before resuming on an upward trajectory.
There are some positive (for the world) factors going on that could lead the gold rally to lose steam on a very short-term basis, the next week or two. Longer term CPM remains positive toward gold prices.
- Biden and Xi are trying to find words to imply that they will try to be more cooperative, even as both governments are likely to continue to be belligerent toward each other. The words this week could lead to a reduction of market perceptions of reduced US-China tensions and hostilities even if it is not true, which would be good for world trade and overall economic activity.
- The U.S. electorate has sent a clear message in last week’s elections: The vast majority of voters are fed up with both the Democrats and Republican extremists, and the lack of both cooperative democratic government processes and action on a lot of pressing issues.
- Ukraine is making good progress on beating back the Russians, there is rising insurgency within Russia, and Russia’s leadership is arguing among itself as to what to do.
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.
