AS The Real Result Is Still Painting A Gloomy Picture For Gold
As I said before, the increase in real yields is a concern for gold and that makes it hard for me to get a price increase on the precious metal. Now admittedly, the lower gold price initially did not happen given the failed test in 2000. With gold below 1915, this now represents resistance, while the main support lies in 1880. Until 1880 was broken, technically, gold was neutral.

We typically take a view that is contrary to public sentiment, and the fact that traders are net length suggests the price of Gold may continue to fall.
Traders are longer net than yesterday and last week, and the combination of current sentiment and recent changes gives us a stronger trading tendency against the decline in the price of Gold.
