Boston, Apr.22, stock investment .- Each Week Longleaftrading.com will be providing us a chart of the week as analyzed by a member of their team. We hope that you enjoy and learn from this new feature. Weekly Gold Report (April 22nd through April 26th) Without any big news to play off of, most markets begin the week a bit flat. Traders this morning are trying to decide whether the only standout rally in the Gold is here to stay, or if it is an early stop hunt to begin the week. We won’t soon forget the Sunday overnight in the Metals last week when Gold continued a drop that we have not seen in over thirty years. So who can blame anyone for being once bitten, twice shy?
A scan across the board does not reveal much except for a majority of the market sectors making an effort to retrace the price action we experienced a week ago. Korea has been rather silent, the tragedy in Boston is seemingly on the mend, and the parade of FED Member interviews is slowly coming to a close. In the absence of these headlines, we will likely go back to trading the actual reports that are scheduled this week.
In the US, the stock indexes will pay close attention to the continuation of Q1 reported earnings, and may set its sights on the GDP report at the end of the week. Europe reports numbers early on Tuesday and Wednesday, while Great Britain and Japan will take center stage on Thursday reporting GDP and Interest Rates, respectively.
The Weekly Chart on Gold futures shows how critical prices between $1425 and $1500 are for the June Futures. On the lower end $1425 is where the 200 day moving average resides. As we move $25 higher, we run into the trendline that once underpinned the price of Gold, and will probably now provide overhead resistance on the way up. And lastly, a rally to $1500 or better will likely convince traders that last weeks drubbing was all she wrote for a while.
