Model Gold Portfolio: Neutral (Signal 10/27).
Technical Read: With the GLD now picking up support at the $110 level, the downtrend has been largely negated. On my last post, I mentioned that expected returns (via calculations) had dried. Recent trading has the gold surrogate ETF bound in a tight range ($110-$113). Now what? It is a waiting game. Putting on a position too early could lead to the eager trader getting chopped up. Watch the market for changes.
- Catalyst 1 – The S&P 500 pushed a tad higher today, extending a series of miniscule gains. There is a difference between stocks and gold: the expected returns calculations are pointing to a hefty move ahead. With shorts being treated to days of losses, the most likely outcome would be a short capitulation, triggering additional buy-stops. Good health for stocks is mildly bearish for gold.
