Gold Prices Today: Analysts expect yellow metal to breach $2,000 mark,  investors can buy on dips

The price of gold hit a fresh 18-month earlier today as investors poured into the hard commodity space, sending prices in some metals spiraling higher. The London Metal Exchange (LME) has suspended trading in nickel after the industrial metal topped $100,000 a ton on fears that brokers caught short may have difficulty in paying their margins. According to media reports, the China Construction Bank Corporation has been granted additional time to pay 100s of millions of US dollars’ worth of margin calls that it missed on Monday.

With the war in Ukraine showing no sign of abating, sanctions on Russia continue to grow. Late yesterday, the London Bullion Markets Association (LBMA) suspended six Russian refiners with immediate effect, adding that gold and silver from these refiners will no longer be accepted as Good Delivery by the London Bullion market until further notice.

LBMA Good Delivery Notice

The longer-term outlook for gold is looking rosy, according to the monthly chart, with a bullish ‘cup and handle’ pattern currently building. If this long-term indicator plays out, the price of gold may have substantially further to run.

The daily gold chart shows very little in the way of resistance before the August 2020 multi-year high at $2,075/oz. comes into view. The ATR indicator shows that gold’s volatility is at a multi-month high – and this should be factored into any trading position – while robust support is seen around $1,960/oz.

Retail trader data show 69.65% of traders are net-long with the ratio of traders long to short at 2.29 to 1. The number of traders net-long is 1.26% lower than yesterday and 9.44% lower from last week, while the number of traders net-short is 6.61% lower than yesterday and 9.65% higher from last week.

We typically take a contrarian view to crowd sentiment, and the fact traders are net-long suggests Gold prices may continue to fall.

Positioning is more net-long than yesterday but less net-long from last week. The combination of current sentiment and recent changes gives us a further mixed Gold trading bias.

What is your view on Gold – bullish or bearish?

    • Does anybody know the BIL (SPDR Bloomberg 1-3 Month T-Bill ETF) equivalent with a GBP currency hedge? I want the interest yield but I don't want the currency risk.
    • Capital, win loss ratio. If you have a trading edge and you can consistently win 50% of your trades, so your winning 5 trades out of 10. So if your risking 1% of your capital per trade, out of your 10 trades 5 would be losers, so that’s 5% loss and realistically out of the 5 winning trades, some would make small profits, some break even and 1, 2 or 3 could run nicely IF you can let your profits run, basically your making money out of 2 trades out of the 10 trades (80/20 Rule Pareto principle) So a $20,000 acct risking 1% is $200 per trade, this will keep the trader with his trade risk based on being able to win 50% of his trades. A long term trend trader can win with 30% wining trade. Basically you need to know your numbers. Rgds Pete
    • Investing in stocks can be a great way to grow your wealth over time. However, there are different approaches that investors can take when choosing which stocks to buy. Two of the most popular approaches are growth investing and value investing. Growth Investing Growth investing is an investment strategy that focuses on buying stocks of companies that are expected to grow at a faster rate than the overall market. These companies are often in industries that are growing quickly, such as technology or healthcare. Investors who use this approach believe that these companies will be able to generate higher profits in the future, which will lead to higher stock prices. One of the main advantages of growth investing is that it can potentially provide higher returns than the overall market. However, it is also riskier than other investment strategies, as these companies often have higher valuations and more volatile stock prices. Value Investing Value investing is an investment strategy that focuses on buying stocks of companies that are undervalued by the market. These companies may be in industries that are out of favour or have recently experienced challenges, but they have strong fundamentals and a history of profitability. Investors who use this approach believe that these companies are undervalued and that their true value will be recognized in the future, leading to higher stock prices. One of the main advantages of value investing is that it can potentially provide lower risk than growth investing. However, it may also provide lower returns in the long run, as these companies may not have the same growth potential as companies in the growth investing category. Comparing Growth and Value Investing Growth and value investing are two different approaches to stock investing, each with its own advantages and disadvantages. Growth investing can potentially provide higher returns but is riskier, while value investing can provide lower risk but potentially lower returns. An investor may choose one approach or a combination of both. A portfolio that contains a mix of growth and value stocks can provide a balance of potential returns and risk. Conclusion Both growth investing and value investing can be effective ways to invest in stocks. The key is to understand the potential risks and rewards of each approach and to choose the one that aligns with your investment goals and risk tolerance. Analyst Peter Mathers TradingLounge™
