Gold (very short-term) The gold price may try to tackle overhead resistance, today in New York.

Throughout yesterday gold prices continued to hold the higher levels. Bear in mind that it was dollar weakness, not gold’s strength that led to higher dollar gold prices. With today’s dollar settling at lower levels [as the Treasury and Fed want] we do not expect any gold price moves to be caused by dollar moves.
As we have pointed out frequently, the main gold price driver in the U.S. is demand for U.S. based gold ETFs. So, yesterdays over 6 tonne purchase should have kicked the gold price higher. But from $1,340 to $1,350 represents strong resistance as a break through this level would signal overhead resistance has been defeated. Certainly a major purchase of ETF shares would do it. With the weekend ahead of us we do expect more market action today than any other day of the week. Subscribe: www.GoldForecaster.com
Gold ETFs – There were purchases of 6.528 tonnes into the SPDR gold ETF and of 0.30 of a tonne into the Gold Trust yesterday, leaving their respective holdings at 950.919 tonnes and 223.81 tonnes.
Looking back over the week, we have seen overall U.S. demand for the shares of U.S. based gold ETFs strong and sales standing back waiting to see where gold prices will go from here. A critical question to ask is, “Have the major sellers exited the market?” If they have we could see decisive action from physical gold demand ahead.
Since January 4th this year, the holdings of these two gold ETFs have risen by 374.427 tonnes.
Silver – Silver prices followed gold higher, but not in a rush, as the silver price moved strongly higher over the last few days, already. Overhead resistance on the gold price is heavy, so silver is standing back to see where gold will go today.
