Gold Trade: 'Scale in' With Small Amounts on a Protective Strategy

by TheStreet.com Videos 2:14 mins

Gold futures trade around $1,300 an ounce on Thursday, but traders should maintain a defensive strategy, RJO Futures senior market strategist Phil Streible tells TheStreet's Joe Deaux. A steadily falling U.S. dollar and lingering uncertainties about Russia and Ukraine are adding pressure to gold. Streible recommends scaling into the gold trade in smaller amounts, and he suggests buying a put option at the $1,270 an ounce level. If the market comes down, Streible says you would initiate a long futures order. He says this is a protective strategy.
