Model Gold Portfolio: Now: Long (Bullish) (1/27)
Technical Read: Gold suffered another bout of selling today, however prices picked up support (both today and on the 29th) at the 120 level (GLD basis). The 120 level is just above the surprise Swiss bank announcement gap. Nonlinear trading analysis is supportive. We should pick up risk buying going into the weekend as well. The long signal continues to be viable.
- Catalyst 1 – The S&P 500 powered off the recent lows but big caps are still range bound (1990-2070, S&P 500 basis). Greek/ECB negotiation headlines were pretty much negative but there are rumors behind the scenes that the Greek government has made assurances to work to make this summer’s debt payments. This is neutral for gold.
- Ponderable –The Super Bowl (America’s pinnacle pro football game for the year) proved to be a nail biter to the end. The curious ending featured the Seahawks miraculously getting the ball then diving a couple of feet from the goal line. With a talented running back the obvious play was to pound the ball for the score and the win. But fans were astonished to see the Seahawks try a risky over-the-middle pass that was then intercepted. They turned a victory into a loss. The lesson for traders, is to not get too “fancy”. Look for an edge, use the basic trading rules and remember not to overstay the trade.
