Gold price have been rising overall since early November as the U.S. dollar retreated. Over the past couple of weeks prices have tried to top $1,850, but it was just today that prices surpassed this level, reaching $1,856.60 on an intraday basis before easing.

Not much has changed economically, politically, or financially going into the new year. Inflation continues to be moderating slower lower while still at high levels as central banks continue to raise interest rates, with the economic backdrops gradually slowing having shown unexpected strength in the second half of 2022.

On a technical basis gold prices are pointing toward higher prices. This said, it would not be surprising for there to be some profit-taking and pullback. Support levels should now be higher along with resistance levels. In addition to technical support there also is seasonal support for gold prices, which tends to perform well in the first quarter of the year.

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.
