Gold Catching Down with Euro

Gold's record high vs. euro was a key signal in ensuring bearishness in both the currency & the metal against the US dollar. Forex & commodity traders must watch.

NO DEAD CROSS YET, Ashraf. But close! At least on the continuous contract (which doesn't use the pit close): 50 SMA = 1107.36; 100 SMA = 1103.26. --NewMan

THANKS for the wonderful gold analysis, Asraf! That's why I come here -- to understand gold in dollars.

Another data point pointing to gold going lower: the recent rally in spot gold price was NOT accompanied by an increase in the gold holdings of GLD. When that happens, gold rally is unsustainable, and price heads lower.

All the best,

NewMan

Ashraf:

When you mean net long/short are you referring to positions of Large Speculators or Commercials. Being a paper contract, the positions by all the different participants will net out.

Thank you for all the information you share.

Thank you for this insightful analysis! I noticed the CAD weakness as well today. What is also interesting to me is that fundamentally the Australian economy is growing well and more rate hikes are expected. But looking at technicals, today's AUD/US sell-off below the 100-day average makes me wonder about a brief shorting opportunity versus the US. I will be watching this closely; what do you think Ashraf, might this also be just a pre-Bernanke speech blip?

Great analysis as usual Ashraf! Is the record high in gold 1,225 instead of 1,125 right? Also: how do you calculate the target on gold by March 6th?

Ashraf, where do you get your net long/ net short info from? is that something from bloomberg or reuters? or would profressional charting packages like esignal or xtick have it as a volume function?

Thank you
