Intermediate Gold Chart - 1550 to 1570 For a Range Trade, If It Gets There

This looks like a long consolidation, with a range trade of 1550 to 1800.

If we do get down as low as 1570 one might be inclined to step in and buy, adding to longer term holdings and for a trade, with an eye to that 1550 as a low and an upside target north of 1700.

I am sure most traders on the Street are seeing/thinking the same thing. So it might take some agility, and scaling in. And of course if too many specs pile on there, the bullion banks will deliver a short term smacking on general principle. That's what they do. It is tough playing against the house, especially when they get to deal your cards face up.

But I will also be keeping an eye on the stock markets, to see if they correlate with the metals, or if not, and how the VIX fares.
