Gold finished the day with a sharp upswing, but not before gratuitously inflicting pain on bulls with a $15 swoon early in the session. If the rally is ruled by the pattern shown as I expect it to be, the futures should hit 1219.10 overnight or early Thursday. With any luck the move will breeze past the target, giving us reason to expect more of the same over the near term. And if buyers can push just a little higher, surpassing the 1223.00 peak labeled in the chart, it would be bears for a change who are on the run. From a trading standpoint, we should stay anchored in bedrock, meaning ‘counterintuitive’ entries only. I passed up what turned out to have been an excellent ‘mechanical’ buying opportunity on Wednesday because, like you, I’ve grown increasingly skittish about catching the falling piano. That is not necessarily to say that gold is difficult to trade, only that we will have to focus our efforts on only the most promising set-ups.
