Before we go into the weekend, I wanted to point out two positive developments.

  • Gold formed a bullish engulfing swing low
  • The COT report  improved markedly.


-GOLD- Prices formed an official swing low as well as a bullish engulfing candle. We could see a little more back and forth early next week, but I like our chances for a bottom here.

-COT REPORT- The commercials added longs and reduced their short holdings. Combined they’re net short 73,635, a bullish number. In comparison, they were net short 119,463 at the December low and 73,635 last July. After bottoming last July at 73,635, prices rallied from $1,204 to $1,362.40 in just 8-weeks.

Have a great weekend.
