Backfill Trade Completed Overnight

The producer price index for May came in with a drop 0f 0.2%, again confirming inflation is not “yet” an issue, which may give the Fed pause.  From a technical perspective, the gold market backfilled to the $1,277 level but now requires a push through, with momentum,  before I see an attempt of the $1,300 target. The geopolitical risks associated with Iraq has created some safe haven buying, but certainly not as much as one would have expected. However, it has had an effect on the equity markets as a “surge” oil price brings back into question the viability of an ongoing global recovery. We suggest the market will not be aggressively short into the weekend and traders should buy intra-day weakness, in the $1,267 level for gold and the $19.44 level for silver.
