A Market Timing Report based on the 4-25-2014 Close published Sunday April 27, 2014
Gold bounced from critical support this week after testing below it. This often happens with any financial instrument, including stocks. Stocks will often test just below a support level, though typically intraday and not on a close, but sometimes the test is below support on a close. If you set your stops too close to these levels you will often sell at just the wrong time.
Meanwhile, interest rates continue to cooperate with Fed Chair Janet Yellen. Some claim it’s due to the soft economy with increasing expectations of the need for the Fed to slow down their easing of QE. The housing market has been somewhat soft after rising in price by over 12% year over year. And other blame the Ukrainian crisis and the flight to the U.S. dollar that often occurs during states of panic or semi-panic.
The effect of these lower rates is to support the metals rally. Gold is still a buy with a stop beneath obvious support. As mentioned, don’t place your stop too close to that support just in case it is back-tested one more time (and if that’s not your style and you disagree, use a tight stop! “It’s your money..” as I like to say.).
