It is always comforting when one’s thinking is corroborated by smart people. I wrote last week that we are approaching an opportunity area for gold and today I read that the Coe Report has just taken a long gold position for their accounts. The newsletter is a service from Investors Intelligence – the same source for the market newsletter editor’s sentiment that we look at in the weekly sentiment overview.
Tarquin Coe, the author of the report, suggests that the major trend is about to reassert itself as the gold price approaches its 150 exponential moving average and as the MACD falls down to previous levels that have coincided with market lows. In case he is wrong, he will be taking his cue from a sustained break below $125 for the GPDR Gold ETF (GLD) and the piercing of the 150 and 200 EMA. Coe’s first target for gold is $139.54 but he hints that it could go much higher as it is all basically blue skies with little resistance.
For another take, here’s a video from Adam Hewison of INO arguing that gold’s correction is not over. His rationale for standing aside is that there is a broad topping formation and the technical indicators that he follows are negative for both long term and short term. For the details see the short video after the link.
