Precious metals prices have slumped to a nearly one-year low as of Wednesday morning with gold trading at around $1,227 and silver at $15.56 at the time of writing. The slumping precious metals market is looking for a rally. Yesterday, the Federal Reserve Chairman, Jerome Powell, was on Capitol Hill where he appeared before the House Financial Services Committee and spoke about the state of the US economy. His positive outlook helped to boost the major US stock indexes. Although stocks are up, the lower prices of gold and silver, as well as other commodities, continue to worry some investors.
Are we on the verge of another correction in the gold price? As we appear to be on track for a fourth straight losing session, gold appears to be on the brink of its correction territory. These losses are in stark contrast as the US dollar continues on a strengthening trend which fits the old paradigm that when the dollar goes up, gold goes down. On the year, gold has tumbled about $140 per ounce.
Market sentiment shows more bears than bulls. Who is going to make the first move? One can only make a definitive assertion about price action from a macro perspective. Are we in a valley or will gold continue to drop off a cliff before recovering sometime in the future? It’s worth noting that during times when the actions of geopolitical entities create greater waves in the markets. Precious metals continue to be the safest form of investment.
