Gold Spiked Up Over the Weekend


The attack on its next target was enough to keep alive the rally's momentum.

The following are the latest daily summaries of my ongoing intraday coverage, providing context to interpret price action. Any prices listed are for a contract's current "front month." Their direction tends to correlate with any ETFs listed for each.

Today's Highlight: Gold's surge Sunday night revealed a degree of elasticity that keeps alive higher targets without having to keep alive the rally's momentum.

Dollar Basket
Monday's narrow ranging did not offer any new guidance to the pattern.

Sep Contract EC; (NYSEARCA:FXE)
Monday's narrow ranging did not offer any new guidance to the pattern.

Oct Contract GC; (NYSEARCA:GLD)
Sunday night's surge attacking the 1410.00 objective had disappeared entirely before Monday's open. Intraday weakness held the 1388.00 pullback limit to avoid reversing momentum down.

Sep Contract SI; (NYSEARCA:SLV)
Potential to 24.55 was nearly fulfilled by Monday morning's attack on 24.45. The reaction down held above 24.00 to avoid reversing momentum down.

30-year Treasury
Sep Contract US; (NYSEARCA:TLT)
Early strength Monday above 132-10 was retraced back into negative territory, all but confirming that a rally is unlikely to begin without first producing one more new low close.

Crude Oil
Oct Contract CL; (NYSEARCA:USO)
The obligatory reaction to weekend war talk didn't last long. Sunday night's gap up to fresh recovery highs disappeared Monday as price turned negative intraday.

Natural Gas
Monday's gap up suffered the same "ineffectual optimism" that inhibited last week's rally efforts, and the balance of the session essentially ranged narrowly unchanged. Still, trying to rally anyway suggests that the pattern intends to correct more through the passage of time than through a traditional price pullback.
