Gold Searches for a Bottom
March 5, 20201 - (Gold Market Wire) - Horizontal support in the vicinity of $1685 continues to hold the Gold price in its spell and yesterday's word of caution now seems prescient in retrospect. The Gold rout is continuing. Trying to pick a bottom in an environment like this is a fools errand - so let's just see if we stop around support.

Within all the mayhem, and in retrospect, the decision to leave the short gold/silver ratio trade was the right one. The 64-66 box we pointed out is now in the past... we have broken out. We've touched some fairly important resistance..but we wouldn't get short here.
The markets are a mess, and the only position we hold, as has been the case for almost two weeks now, has been long the US Dollar. We see no need to amend any of that presently.
