By | Trade Ideas | 3 Comments

I have been covering gold ever since Oct 2007 and many readers know that I am a long term bull on Gold (both Physical metal as well as paper gold). Gold is one of those underlyings that I don’t short. I, at times, may initiate a swings bearish positions but I will usually close it within a few days.

By | Technical Analysis, Trade Ideas, US Market | One Comment

Recall the post on Dec 31 on watching the Gold action. It has been closing upwards every years for the past 8 years. As of Friday’s close, Gold was up almost +7% year to date and as of this writing, it’s rising further. Attached chart shows a massive base building around $920-$940.
