U.S. Independence Day – Fireworks in Gold – By Todd Horwitz, Bubba Trading.


In honor of U.S. independence Gold is exploding and has tested the highs made last week when it saw a blow off top. On Tuesday Gold was holding our support levels and was steadily rallying suddenly towards the close of the trading day the rally was on and Gold closed at 1421.

In the overnight session which begins at 6:00 EDT gold was celebrating U.S. independence and traded as high as 1441. The buyers couldn’t get in fast enough and as always happens the excitement subsided, and the sellers came in creating equal Librium to the market.

This morning Gold is trading 1428 and looks ready to continue to rally. Our expectations are to see gold consolidate; the spike rally was not a total surprise with gold bouncing from support. There is a solid trading range between 1380 and 1450 which should continue for a week or two.

We are bullish and will buy the bottom end of the range as we prepare for Gold to make a run at 1500 and beyond. The fireworks are real but don’t be surprised if there isn’t a few duds along the way and a couple of sell offs to shake out the weak hands
