It was do or die for the yellow metal a couple of weeks ago.
Gold chose “do.”
Buyers sprang into action, defending a critical former support level while driving prices higher.
That valiant effort may have only prolonged the inevitable: a period of sustained weakness.
Don’t get me wrong. I’m not playing the role of a Debbie Downer this week.
I still believe gold is in the early innings of a new secular bull run.
It’s pretty simple. All we have to do is switch the denominator to any other global currency.
Gold has already broken out versus every currency in the world – except the US dollar.
And that, folks, is the crux of the problem.
The US dollar!
