Support / Resistance

Price action seems to be weakening. So first major support level is 1700 on Gold spot and resistance at 1800. I'm personally hedging my bets by doing a relative strength trade and going to go long Gold and short Silver. As silver is weaker here IMO as it is in a stage 4 down trend on the weekly chart and below the 30 week moving average. Whereas Gold is still in a late stage 2B uptrend on the weekly and above the 30 week moving average.

Palladium (PA)


Not many people trade Palladium, but I've traded it on and off over the last few years. But I only recently started getting the daily futures volume data from the CME, so the chart is a little bit broken up at the bottom in the volume data and force index. It made a very large stage 3 top over the last year and is now in a stage 4 downtrend and looking weaker than silver as it didn't manage to reach the 30 week MA on it's bounce. Here's my chart

Precious Metals Charts

Here's the updated weekly and daily charts for Gold, Silver and Palladium. All looking weak here imo, with Palladium the weakest and Gold the strongest of the three.

Palladium can be traded with either Futures at the CME or via ETFs. PA is the symbol at the CME for the futures prices. Volume is very low on a daily basis, roughly 2% of the size of gold. So volumes are thin. You can also trade via a physically backed ETF on NYSE using the PALL symbol or in London via PHPD.L

ETF Securities are good to look at for the ETFs in Europe as they trade most of the commodities.

HG is the symbol for copper at the CME and volume is ok at around 1/3 the size of Gold and 1/4 size of Crude. This can also be traded via a physical ETF in London - symbol PHCU.L but I'm not sure on the US physical baced one. But JJC tracks the copper index.

Hope that helps

Symbol JJC is the iPath Dow Jones-UBS Copper Subindex Total Return ETN which is an index created to track copper. The tracking isn't bad, but under performs the spot price a bit over time like a lot of ETFs as you can see from this relative performance chart
