Gold Technical Analysis
Moving average crossovers are always interesting, so let’s start there: Gold crossed below its 50 day moving average yesterday. Trend traders will want to observe that the strongest trend appears on the 90 day horizon; over that time period, price has been moving up. Traders will also want to note, though, that a counter trend — meaning a trend going down — can be seen on the 14 day timeframe. If you’re looking to trade the primary trend, this may be a good opportunity to buy dips created by the counter trend. For additional context, note that price has gone up 7 out of the past 14 days.
Overheard on Twitter
For laughs, fights, or genuinely useful information, let’s see what the most popular tweets pertaining to Gold for the past day were:
- From 777luigixxx:
@MacleodFinance Alasdair, let it go! The LBMA/Comex story is old news! Have you seen how they have been crashing the gold price lately? I want gold prices to go up as much as you do but you need to understand that the current global fiat system is way more powerful than the one of John Law!
- From DesoGames:
This runs counter to the entire existence of COMEX, which was to depress the gold price by flooding the market with paper that is “as good as gold” while it definitely is not and deliver as little as possible. Clients get cheap gold and speculators get profit opportunity.
- From unusualvalue:
Evidence for this for example during 2013-2018 where the gold price was basically flat within a tight range but $FNV were able to grow FCF per share in the teens and the share price roughly kept pace while the miners didn’t even come close to achieving this.
