Gold prices have spiked higher as global financial markets continue to be roiled by the worsening US China trade war, the emerging currency war, and a range of other political and economic problems. Stock markets have fallen sharply.
This is the kind of market situation in which CPM would use options, buying both a put and a call to take advantage of the increased potential for volatile moves in both directions. These Recommendations focus on non-option purchases, however. Given that, CPM would take profits at current prices around $1,508 / £39.76, with the expectation that we can re-enter fresh long positions on any short-term pull back in prices below $1,500 / £39.55. Prices may come off, briefly, to as low as $1,490 / £39.28. At that point CPM would re-establish a short-term long position. We would not go short since you never want to stand in front of a racing train.
Note: Discretion should be allowed at +/- $0.50 / £0.01 from the target.
