Hi my name is Sheldon, I'm a long term investor in Scottsdale, Arizona. I started investing not too long ago in early 2010 when I got a bug in my ear about commodities. I did a few months of research and was astonished at what I had inadvertently found. As I was researching about the... More

  • GLD : Gold Update 05/08/2014

    GLD finished the day unchanged. I expect to see a bit of sideways movement before our eventual breach of the primary target of 123.00.

    High:124.37

    Low:123.97

    Prim. Target:123.00

    Alt. Target:128.25

  • GLD : Gold Update 05/07/2014

    Gold continued lower as expected. Today, Fed Chair, Janet Yellen gave her testimony to the Joint Economic Committee. And as to no surprise she was relatively upbeat about the outlook of the economy, even though Q1 GDP scraped by at a mere gain of .01% growth. She did mention that the housing market is a concern at the moment, due to new building permits presenting a dismal 2.4% growth in March. She added that the housing market will be watched carefully and accommodative policy will amplified should growth continue to slow.

    No changes in economic stimulus packages were made today and Yellen foresees a continued tapering of Quantitative Easing. I believe gold will continue it's downward trend, and we will see the breach of my main price target of 123 within a few days time. If GLD happens to move sideways the breach could take up to a week, but this is not my primary presumption at this time.

  • GLD : Gold Update 05/06/2014

    Gold moved downward today as expected. At this point gold's main direction is still unclear. I am still looking for a breach below 123 as my main target. Tomorrow Fed Chair Janet Yellen will be giving a testimony in regards to the economic and stimulus outlook. It is my belief that we will see much of the same from her, which is continued tapering as well as a rosy forecast for the U.S. economy. My guess is this will give gold the drop that we have been looking for. If gold happens to end the day higher tomorrow, I predict it continuing the rest of the week lower. But then again this really all depends on what we hear from Yellen.

    Disclosure: I have no positions in GLD. I will await confirmation of gold's direction before placing any trade. We are here to make money, not to gamble.

    Best regards,

    Sheldon S.
