Gold’s Intriguing and Dangerous Prospects

Yaron Mazor

Gold has seen brutal and persistent whipsaw trading the past two weeks. The precious metal has seen a repeated test of resistance and support in dynamic trading conditions. Risk appetite in equities has perhaps hindered Gold, but the long-term is intriguing for the commodity.

Gold’s Persistent Whipsaw Movements

Gold prices have continued to provide traders with persistent whipsaw movement. The precious metal is near 1275.00 U.S Dollars an ounce.

The rise of risk appetite among Asian and American investors has likely seen cash allocated to Indexes like the Nikkei in Japan and the Dow Jones Industrials on Wall Street. However, Gold remains intriguing and opportunities abound.

Gold’s Long Haul Looks Intriguing

Gold has seen a strong amount of support around 1264.00 U.S Dollars. And traders with fortitude may continue to look for reversals upwards when they feel the precious metal has been pushed too low.

While inflation remains rather muted in the global economy, there is a reason to suspect Gold may continue to attract buyers over the long haul.
