Gold, as with Silver, managed to bounce right where it needed to in order to prevent a deeper drop. It uncovered buying down near the $1,535 - $1,530 level, an area where we learned after the fact, that Central Banks had been buying back in September.
Bulls are digging in here so one can only hope that their conviction remains firm enough to take the price out of the danger zone and back above the $1,600 level. Such an event would trigger some sizeable shortcovering among the weaker-handed bears.
Failure to hold today's low sends the market almost immediately down towards $1505 - $1,500.
Last see what we get in trading tomorrow to end the day, week, month and year. Currently we are seeing buying coming into the Asian session. No doubt some of this is shorts ringing the cash register to go out on a winning note for the week.
"When misguided public opinion honors what is despicable and despises what is honorable, punishes virtue and rewards vice, encourages what is harmful and discourages what is useful, applauds falsehood and smothers truth under indifference or insult, a nation turns its back on progress and can be restored only by the terrible lessons of catastrophe." … Frederic Bastiat
Evil talks about tolerance only when it’s weak. When it gains the upper hand, its vanity always requires the destruction of the good and the innocent, because the example of good and innocent lives is an ongoing witness against it. So it always has been. So it always will be. And America has no special immunity to becoming an enemy of its own founding beliefs about human freedom, human dignity, the limited power of the state, and the sovereignty of God. – Archbishop Chaput
