Can Gold Break Its Range? – Gary Wagner
from Kitco News As gold prices build on Wednesday’s sharp rise, Gary Wagner checks in on this edition of Chart This! to see if there’s any substance for a sustained gold price rally. Without question, Wagner believes that gold must close above $1,200 Friday for there to be any hope of a sustained rally. He adds that while gold price fluctuations are linked to U.S. economic data performance, he adds that there is also a currency-based aspect involved. “[W]e pair gold against currencies and we’ve seen that the tremendous rise in the dollar put so much pressure on gold – now we’re seeing the dollar falling,” he says. “I think the big story here right now is the euro/dollar because [it’s] been so excessively strong. We need to see if it can keep that.” Tune in now to see what the charts are telling Gary this week.
